The Scottish FA has begun the recruitment process for a new compliance officer after announcing that Andrew Phillips will leave the governing body.

The lawyer succeeded Clare Whyte in the role at Hampden, taking responsibility for the game’s rules and regulations and the disciplinary processes.

Phillips will leave in November to take up an opportunity elsewhere and the search is now beginning for a replacement.

Gary Booth, Scottish FA chief governance officer said: “Andrew has displayed significant professionalism throughout his time in this high-pressure role, particularly as football adapted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The position of the Compliance Officer is a vital one in the Scottish professional game and Andrew’s commitment to the role has set a high bar for his successor.

“We would like to place on record our gratitude to Andrew for his hard work and dedication as we look to recruit his replacement.”
