SFA and Levein settle payment quarrel

The Scottish Football Association has agreed a pay dispute with former manager Craig Levein regarding his sacking.

The 48-year old was sacked by the SFA in November with 20 months remaining on his contract and was told by the governing body he would be paid the remainder of the deal over that time.

However, Levein wanted a lump sum and after serving the SFA with a writ has been compensated for the premature loss of his job.

"The Scottish FA and Craig Levein confirm that a mutually acceptable settlement has been reached for an undisclosed sum in relation to Craig's contract with the Scottish FA," read a SFA statement.

"The Scottish FA wishes Craig well for the future. No further comment will be made on this matter."
