David Longmuir: Out of Hampden

David Longmuir: Out of Hampden

Longmuir, the former chief executive of the Scottish Football League, lost out to SPL counterpart Neil Doncaster last month in the race to head up the newly-formed organisation.

The duo were the only candidates vying for the chance to take the game forward following the merger of Scotland's two professional leagues.

Longmuir had been in charge of the lower leagues north of the border since 2007, having previously worked in the alcohol industry.

In a statement, the SPFL said: "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, which retains the 12-10-10-10 set up, was given the green light by Scotland's 42 senior clubs following a number of meetings at Hampden last month.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
