Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has been appointed to the Scottish FA’s main board, after he was nominated by the professional game board as its representative.
In statement on the Scottish FA website, Lawwell commented: “Clearly I am pleased to accept this nomination. Whilst there are certain challenges facing the game in Scotland, there is also a great deal to be positive about and much to look forward to.
“We must build on these positives and along with other Board members I look forward to playing my part in working to improve and develop various aspects of the game, for the benefit of Scottish football as a whole.”
Lawwell joins chief executive Stewart Regan, president Campbell Ogilvie, vice-president Alan McRae and second vice-president Rod Petrie, along with independent non-executive director Barrie Jackson.
The Celtic chief executive replaces Ralph Topping, who was previously on the board as chairman of the Scottish Premier League.
The Professional Game Board is comprised of: Stewart Regan, Campbell Ogilvie, Alan McRae, Rod Petrie, Neil Doncaster, Peter Lawwell, Dr Andrew Waddell, Sandy Stables, Michael Johnston, Bill Darroch and Duncan Fraser.
The Non-Professional Game Board will make their nomination at the next meeting.
