Livingston to do all they can to end season on high

Have your say

LIVINGSTON captain Liam Fox vowed the players will do everything to try and end the season on a high – after it was announced the midfielder would leave the club at the end of the campaign, after seven years in West Lothian.

Fox is not expected to be the only player to depart the side, with the financial realities of Scottish football hit home.

And as the Lions take on Airdrie tomorrow, the club’s record appearance holder said he will cherish the memories he has from his time at the Braidwood Motor Company Stadium.

He said: “It’s honestly been a proper privilege.

“We’ve won back to back titles, it looks like we might finish third in the league this year, which is fantastic, and playing with these guys is brilliant and enjoyable.

“There are also the friendships we’ve all made over the last three or four years or more. We can look back in a few years’ time and remember the titles we’ve won.

“That’s something not a lot of people get, being together so long and that’s been a massive, massive plus for me.”

Fox added: “It is probably the end of an era in terms of this group of players, with the impact of financial restrictions and what not.

“I think it’s probably going to be the break up of a group that’s been pretty successful.

“The boys are just looking to get a couple of victories and a couple of good performances to end the thing on a high.”

The midfielder admits recent performances have not been too impressive, with one win in their last seven – but said with the future looking clearer for most of the squad they’re hoping to make amends tomorrow.

He said: “Obviously the end of the season is a difficult time for football players with people out of contract, moving on, and with bills to pay.

“However, that’s just the way it is and we’re not looking for sympathy.

“I think most of the boys are clearer now on where they’ll be next year and I think the guys realise that in the last couple of weeks performances haven’t been as good – we’re looking to rectify that in the last two matches.”
