Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has been appointed to the Scottish Football Association board.

Lawwell has joined current members chief executive Stewart Regan, president Campbell Ogilvie, vice-president Alan McRae, and second vice-president Rod Petrie, on the board along with Barrie Jackson, the independent non-executive director.

Lawwell was nominated by the Professional Game Board to be their representative on the SFA board.

"Clearly I am pleased to accept this nomination," he said.

"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."
