Livingston manager Gary Holt refused to be drawn on the vacant Kilmarnock job again following his side's 4-0 win over Ross County.

Former Killie player Holt is the frontrunner to replace Angelo Alessio, who was sacked on Tuesday.

Livingston are now sixth in the Scottish Premiership, a point behind the Rugby Park side.

"I'm here to talk about Livingston. That's my job, that's where I'm employed," he said.

"I'm doing the best that I can do for this club, and myself and the players and fans, and that's all I want to talk about."

The former midfielder spent six years playing for Kilmarnock, making 138 appearances, scoring 12 goals and winning the 1997 Scottish Cup.

Meanwhile, Ross County co-manager Steven Ferguson said he would not use his team's illness during the week as an excuse for the defeat.

He said: "We've had a difficult week, and it's the end of that very difficult week but it's certainly no excuse from our point of view.

"We thought we'd come into the game today thinking we could be competitive. The week certainly didn't help, but it's not an excuse."
