Holt: Leaves Falkirk amid ongoing restructure.

Gary Holt has left Falkirk amid an ongoing restructure of the club’s football department.

The former Livingston manager, who won ten caps for Scotland during his playing career, was appointed sporting director at Falkirk Park last January.

The 48-year-old leaves with the Bairns sitting in seventh place in Scottish League One.

Recently appointed head coach Martin Rennie, who replaced Paul Sheerin after he was sacked last month, will take on the majority of Holt’s duties.

A statement on Falkirk’s website read: “We’d like to thank Gary for all his hard work over the past year and wish him every success in his future career.

“Pending a forthcoming review of all football operations, Gary’s duties will be undertaken by head coach Martin Rennie, with the exception of youth development which will report into CEO Jamie Swinney.”

Rennie and Kenny Miller were recruited last month after a poor run of form left the Bairns slipping out of promotion contention.
