Scottish FA compliance officer Tony McGlennan has resigned from his position and will leave the governing body later this year.

A Scottish FA spokesperson said: "After four seasons in the role, Tony has decided to return to private practice.

"He will assist with a transition period and will leave the Scottish FA later in the summer.

"We will begin our search for his replacement immediately."

Scottish FA board member Mike Mulraney told STV that McGlennan's efforts had been appreciated and that his successor would be joining a new-look team at Hampden.

"We've known that Tony's potentially been going to leave for a while now," he said. "Tony's done a great job. It's a difficult job and he's done it very, very well and I wish him all the best in the future.

"When you come to work for the SFA it's a great job. It's a great team to join, a fresh new team that's being developed at the SFA.

"Whoever comes in, he or she will be joining that fresh new team and I think it's a great opportunity for someone to develop their career."

McGlennan has spent the last four years at Hampden, working as a key part of the organisation's disciplinary strategy.

The compliance officer reviews reported incidents from matches to decide if there is a case for retrospective disciplinary action, as well as dealing with any other potential rule breaches which may be brought before an independent panel.

McGlennan, who took over from Vincent Lunny, has been involved in several high-profile cases, most recently concluding an eight-month investigation into the decision to award a UEFA licence to Rangers in 2011.

He served the club with a notice of complaint and two disciplinary charges, which the Ibrox club has insisted it will fight vigorously.

The initial hearing is scheduled for June 26 and is expected that the case will have concluded well in advance of McGlennan's departure.
