Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has been appointed to the board of the European Club Association (ECA).

The Hoops CEO has been added to the ECA Executive Board as a replacement for Dinamo Zagreb’s Zoran Mamic who has resigned.

Lawwell told Celtic’s official website: "This is a tremendous honour and a role which I very much look forward to undertaking.

"European football is an ever-changing landscape and from the perspective of Celtic, it is vital that we ensure we are at the heart of the action and at the centre of discussions regarding the development of the game.

"As we look to the future, I look forward to representing Celtic, Scottish clubs and the other clubs in Europe to ensure that the voice of these clubs and their supporters is heard."

Lawwell will join the likes of Arsenal’s Ivan Gazidis, Bayern Munich’s Karl-Heinz Rumenigge and Ajax’s Edwin van der Sar on the board of ‘the sole, independent body directly representing football clubs at European level’.
