Peter Lawwell of Celtic to replace Rangers MD Stewart Robinson on SPFL board

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell will be on the board of the Scottish Professional Football League as a replacement for Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson.

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has been elected to serve on the board of the Scottish Professional Football League.

Lawwell, who replaces Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson, was one of six representatives chosen to represent the 42 member clubs at the SPFL annual general meeting at Hampden on Monday.

Hearts chairwoman Ann Budge leaves the board after two years, with Motherwell's Alan Burrows and John Nelms of Dundee elected to represent the top flight along with Lawwell.

Former Hamilton Academical chairman Les Gray has also joined Budge and Robertson in making way after a year each.

Greenock Morton's Warren Hawke and Falkirk's Martin Ritchie will represent the Championship on the board, while Ian Dougan of Stranraer will take a seat as the representative for League One and League Two.

The six representatives will serve on the board for the 2018-19 season alongside an unchanged trio of SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster, chairman Murdoch MacLennan and independent non-executive director Karyn McCluskey.
