Doncaster will take up the role for three-year period from 2013/14 to 2015/16 and will follow in the footsteps of former SPL Chairman Lex Gold who previously served on the board.

The body was founded in 2005 and now has 30 European Leagues as members.

"I feel honoured to be appointed as a director of the EPFL," said Doncaster.

"I am delighted that Scottish football should once again be represented on the board of such an important body.

"The EPFL plays an increasingly central role within European football policy at the highest level - and it is important Scotland is able to contribute effectively to the debate.

"I look forward to representing all 42 clubs of the SPFL within the association of European Professional Football Leagues."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
