'The inevitable is almost upon Livi' - Thomson

Kevin Thomson isn't a betting man, but if he was, he admits his money would be on Livingston to drop out of the top flight this season. And as the campaign nears its close, he's not the only one.

Defeat to Celtic on Sunday leaves David Martindale's side still 10 points behind Ross County with just seven games remaining and the former Scotland international is struggling to see where the miracle will come from this campaign.

"I've got a lot of admiration for Davie and the job's he done. I feel for him, but you just wonder how many times they can continue to punch above their weight and be competitive," he added.

"I know he'll probably say the same, and he probably gets a wee bit frustrated talking about budgets and always being up against it and trying to recruit the right players, but he's consistently done that.

"I don't think anyone will ever take away how well a job he's done, but, the harsh reality is it does look like it might come to an end this season, which will be a shame.

"Hopefully they can bounce back if they do [go down], without already relegating them, but as the table suggests, it looks as though the inevitable is almost there.

"Even though I'm not a betting man, my money would be certainly on them to go down."
