Former Scotland coach Andy Roxburgh is to leave his job as Uefa technical director after almost 20 years in post.

Roxburgh joined Uefa in 1994, a year after leaving the Scottish FA.

However, the 69-year-old, who led Scotland to the 1990 World Cup and Euro '92, says he does not "intend to hang up my coaching boots".

"We will try to find some life in the old boots," he said. "It's just a natural process. My contract comes to an end."

Uefa are not expected to appoint a replacement as technical director but will maintain the department that Roxburgh has led.

Roxburgh revealed that his last main duty will be presenting the Euro 2012 technical analysis to a conference in late September.

"We have a national coaches' conference in Warsaw and that will be the last big event I will lead at Uefa," said the Glaswegian.
