SFA reach settlement with former Scotland manager Craig Levein

Former Scotland manager Craig Levein

The Scottish FA says it has reached a "mutually acceptable settlement" with former Scotland manager Craig Levein.

Levein, 48, began legal proceedings following his sacking last November, regarding how he was "relieved of his duties".

Gordon Strachan succeeded Levein with Scotland bottom of World Cup qualifying Group A.

"The SFA wishes Craig well for the future. No further comment will be made on this matter," read a statement.

Levein was removed from his post in November, with Under-21 coach Billy Stark put in temporary charge before Strachan was recruited in February.

At the time, the SFA indicated it would continue to honour Levein's monthly payments, which were due to run until next year's World Cup in Brazil.

However, Levein revealed that he had not been paid a penny as the dispute grew increasingly hostile.
