Arthurlie are on the lookout for a new manager again...just days after unveiling Johnny Millar as boss.

The former Beith gaffer was announced as the new man in the Dunterlie Park hotseat on Thursday and took charge for the Barrhead team's 2-1 defeat against Largs Thistle on Saturday.

However, in a bizarre series of events, it turned out to be Millar's one and only game as Arthurlie manager, as it was confirmed yesterday afternoon that he has now stood down.

Millar revealed he no longer has "the drive and hunger" needed to be a manager.

In a statement posted on the club's social media sites, he said: “I would like to firstly apologise to all the committee members, players and fans but I need to be honest with myself and realise that I am not the man to take Arthurlie forward.

“I had retired from football and to be honest I only considered returning as it was my local club and a club I held in high esteem but I let my heart rule my head when accepting the job.

“After the game today, I realise that my time in football is done as I no longer have the drive and hunger that is required. I am sorry to let people down but it has not been an easy decision.

“Lastly I would like to wish everyone at Arthurlie all the very best for the future.”

Millar had taken over from Craig Palmer, who stepped down as Arthurlie boss after a 2-1 defeat at home to Troon on February 25.

Club captain Gary Carroll has been installed as interim manager while the search for Millar's replacement takes place.
