SFA chief: I have failed

Scottish Football Association president Campbell Ogilvie has conceded he has not done his job properly for the last six months because of his previous involvement with Rangers.

The former Ibrox company secretary was employed by the club from 1978 until 2005, when he joined Hearts.

Due to his past connections with Rangers, Ogilvie has not participated in any meetings or discussions during what has been a turbulent time for the Glasgow giants and Scottish football as a whole. Ogilvie said: “Because of my involvement previously with Rangers, I didn't take part in any of the discussions.

“If I'm totally blunt, I believe in the last six months, in many ways, I haven't been doing my job properly because I couldn't take part in the debate. That's bothered me, I must admit, but there was no alternative to that.”

Ally McCoist’s side will host Irn-Bru Second Division outfit Alloa in the third round of the William Hill Scottish Cup on November 3.
