Rod Petrie has temporarily stepped down as Scottish Football Association president for health reasons.

The SFA announced that "on the advice of medical staff, Rod will require a period of recovery away from work".

Vice-president Mike Mulraney will assume Petrie's role on an interim basis.

Petrie became president 12 months ago following eight years as vice-president. He soon stepped down from the Hibernian board following 15 years as chairman of the Easter Road club.

Alloa chairman Mulraney said: "On behalf of the Scottish FA board, our people and Scottish football as a whole, I would like to wish Rod a speedy recovery.

"Rod has been a pillar of strength to the association throughout this Covid-19 pandemic and to me as vice-president. It is now our turn to support Rod through his recovery.

"We look forward to seeing him back to full health soon but in the meantime I will work closely with our chief executive, Ian Maxwell, to continue to steer Scottish football through the uncertainty caused by Covid-19.

"I would ask that everyone respects Rod's request for privacy during his recovery period."
