The 25-year-old defender played 122 times for Livingston in his first spell at the club and was part of two promotion campaigns, before leaving the club in the summer they returned to the Premiership.

Speaking to the club’s website, manager David Martindale said: “I’m delighted to welcome Jacko back to the club where he played a massive part in our back-to-back promotions.

“I was disappointed to lose Jackson when we got promoted to the Premiership as I felt he could have played a big part at the club in the seasons to follow.

“Jackson really epitomises everything about what we look for in a player at Livingston. He trains every day like it’s his last and he gives you everything on the park and is a terrific team player. The backroom staff all speak very highly of Jacko as a player and as a person.”
