SFA president Rod Petrie is back in his role after recovering from surgery.

Petrie was forced to stand down temporarily following a brief illness amid the coronavirus pandemic. He was replaced by Alloa Athletic chairman Mike Mulraney.

The former Hibs chairman and chief executive resumes his presidency having attended last week’s Joint Response Group meetings.

In a statement, Petrie said: “I would like to thank everybody who made contact, directly or indirectly, to pass on their good wishes for my recovery.

“The reality is while I have not felt ill, I did undergo a significant planned procedure.

“It has been five weeks since then, I am feeling fine and it’s now time for me to return.

“Special thanks should go to my vice-president, Mike Mulraney, who stepped in to cover for my absence including chairing the Scottish FA annual general meeting. Thanks also to my colleagues on the board for ensuring continuity in my absence.”
