Scottish FA has new president in Campbell Ogilvie

The Scottish Football Association has a new president after experienced football administrator Campbell Ogilvie took over from George Peat at Tuesday's annual general meeting.

Campbell Ogilvie is the new president of the Scottish Football Association (SFA). The 60–year-old takes over from George Peat, who stepped down at Tuesday's annual general meeting in Glasgow after four years in the post.

Mr Ogilvie has more than 30 years' experience in the Scottish game. He served Rangers FC as secretary and director over a 27-year period before joining Heart of Midlothian FC as managing director in 2005. He has also sat on various UEFA bodies, and became the SFA's first vice-president in 2007.

"It is a great honour to serve as president and I appreciate the responsibility that comes with the position," said Mr Ogilvie. "I would also like to thank the outgoing president, George Peat, for his contribution throughout his 14 years as an office bearer and four years as president. In particular, I would like to acknowledge his part in leading change, having commissioned the Henry McLeish Review of Scottish Football. This should be his legacy."

Speaking after the SFA had ratified a series of radical proposals to transform the governance and structures of the governing body, outgoing president, Mr Peat, said: "I'm proud to leave my post as president of the Scottish FA on such a positive note. I commissioned Henry McLeish's Review of Scottish Football because it was becoming increasingly apparent that our game had to modernise. Today, our members have demonstrated that they agree and are ready to work towards a brighter future for Scottish football."
