Levein launches legal action against the Scottish FA


Former Scotland manager Craig Levein has begun legal proceedings against the Scottish Football Association following his sacking last month, the SFA said yesterday.

The governing body said it had been served a writ “despite the Scottish FA’s offer to honour Craig’s contract in full”.

Levein, 48, a former international who became manager in December 2009, departed with Scotland bottom of their 2014 World Cup qualifying group.

Scotland had collected two points from four matches after opening draws with Serbia and Macedonia before defeats in Wales and Belgium.

“The Scottish FA has since received notification that Craig has chosen to resign, thereby foregoing the offer made to honour his contract in full,” the SFA added.
