Chief executive of SFA leaves for personal reasons

Gordon Smith has left his post as chief executive of the Scottish Football Association for personal reasons after less than three years. The former Rangers striker took up the post in 2007, having formerly worked for BBC Scotland as a sports pundit.

He played for Kilmarnock, Rangers and Brighton, while he had a spell as assistant manager with St Mirren.

But Smith was better known as a regular voice on BBC Scotland's football programmes Sportsound and Sportscene.

The SFA chief executive oversees the development of football in Scotland and the administration of disciplinary matters, but is also responsible for the general organisation of the national side.
