NYRB part ways with sporting director Roxburgh

New York Red Bulls have confirmed the exit of Andy Roxburgh as the club's sporting director.

The Scottish administrator started with the MLS outfit in 2012 but will not be returning in 2015 after the expiration of his contract.

During his time with the Red Bulls, the club won the 2013 MLS Supporter's Shield and also made it to the 2014 Eastern Conference final where they lost to eventual runners-up New England Revolution.

"After two wonderful seasons with this great club and with my contract at an end, it is time for me to move on to a new challenge," Roxburgh said in a statement.

"When I came to New York, I was given the remit of raising professional standards on the sporting side and bringing success on the field. With the support of everyone at the club, I feel that these objectives have been achieved.

"I want to thank Mr. Mateschitz, the owner, for the opportunity to work with so many talented people, players and staff. I wish all of them every success in the future.

"Finally, I must pay tribute to our magnificent supporters. They have been our 'twelfth man' and a truly inspirational force. With their backing, and a professional structure in place, New York Red Bulls will surely go from strength to strength."
