FORMER Musselburgh Athletic manager David McGlynn has resigned as boss at Linlithgow Rose.

McGlynn left Burgh for Bonnyrigg Rose in 2014 after nearly a decade in charge at Olive Bank, before moving to Prestonfield a year later.

After 16 months in charge, he resigned on Monday evening, following the club's goalless draw with Hill of Beath Hawthorn on Saturday.

McGlynn, whose dad Charlie is the Musselburgh Athletic chairman, leaves Rose with the club in ninth place in the East Superleague.

The highlight of his tenure was the club's run to the last 16 of the William Hill Scottish Cup last season – the first Junior side to reach the fifth round.

A statement on the Linlithgow Rose website confirmed his departure.

It reads: "Team manager David McGlynn has tonight offered his resignation to the club and this has been accepted by the club committee.

“The club would like to thank David for his hard work over his time in charge of Linlithgow Rose."

They face Pumpherston in the Fife and Lothians Cup this weekend, and will hope to have a new manager in place soon.

The statement continues: “Further details on the position will be announced soon.”

McGlynn, meanwhile, passed on his best wishes to the Prestonfield club.

He tweeted: "Handed in my resignation to the committee tonight.

"Would like to wish the club all the best for future.

"Looking forward to my next chapter."
