Airdrie Up, Livi Down

Morton will resume hostilities with Airdrie United, and Scott McLaughlin (pictured, left: celebrating the first of two goals he scored against us as Airdrie won 5-0 last season), this season after they were promoted to replace Livingston who have been relegated to the third division for continuing to operate while insolvent.

Livingston's future now appears to be in doubt as the consortium looking to take over at Almondvale have stated that their plans for the club were only viable if they remained in the 1st division.

Cowdenbeath - who we beat 3-1 in the Co-op cup last Saturday - will be promoted to the second division and it looks likely that the 3rd division will only have 9 teams if Livingston go out of business.
