Largs man Dom McKay has stood down from his position as Chief Executive of Celtic Football Club due to personal reasons. 

The former Scottish rugby boss took over from Peter Lawell in July earlier this year. 

In a statement, McKay said: “I’d like to thank the Board and everyone at Celtic for their support and wish everyone at Celtic every success for the future.”

Celtic Chairman Ian Bankier said: “We thank Dom for his efforts on behalf of the Club and everyone wishes Dom and his family very well for the future”.

Celtic’s Director of Legal and Football Affairs Michael Nicholson, who has been with the club since 2013, has been appointed as acting Chief Executive Officer.
