THE Scottish Professional Football League has confirmed David Longmuir’s employment has come to an end after he failed to land the role of chief executive.

Longmuir and Neil Doncaster - CEOs of the Scottish Football League and the Scottish Premier League respectively - were the only two candidates in the running for the job with the newly-created organisation.

Doncaster was last week appointed to the role following the merger of Scotland’s two professional leagues.

An SPFL statement today read: “The SPFL can confirm that following the decision to appoint Neil Doncaster to the role of CEO in the SPFL, David Longmuir’s employment has come to an end.”

The new SPFL was finally ratified by Scottish football’s 42 senior clubs following an epic round of talks at Hampden last month.

The new set-up sees the current 12-10-10-10 structure remain, under one organisation, with the introduction of play-offs and a new financial redistribution model.
