LiVINGSTON assistant boss Mark Burchill hailed his side’s performance after they beat Airdrie United 2-0 in their final away match of the season.

Goals from Craig Barr and Jesus Garcia Tena secured the victory and Burchill said: “We deserved the points. We played great football.”

Craig Barr nodded home Jordon Morton’s corner in the first half before Iain Russell saw his second-half penalty saved by Kenny Arthur after Barr was hauled down by Ricki Lamie.

Arthur, though, was left helpless as Tena’s stunning 30-yard free kick flew into the net ten minutes from time.

Airdrie’s Jordan Allan, meanwhile, becoming the youngest player to play professionally in Scotland. The 14-year-old revealed boss Jimmy Boyle gave him the nod just 24 hours before kick-off. The third-year pupil said: “The gaffer phoned me on Friday and asked if I was fit. I asked if I was playing and he said yes. I was speechless, and so was my family, I think everyone came out to watch me.

“I can’t wait to get into school and tell my class-mates what I did!”
