Hugh Dallas has lost his appeal against dismissal as Head of Referee development at the SFA.
He was informed by writing on Friday 24th December.
SFA President George Peat and HR professional Ms. Viv Coady heard the appeal.
During the appeal Mr. Peat told Dallas that “it was not in the public interest” that he be re-instated.
Mr.Dallas was accompanied at his appeal hearing by his deputy at the SFA referee department John Fleming.
Stewart Regan the CEO that sacked Dallas in November was not present at the appeal.
I understand from sources that Mr.Dallas intends to take the SFA to an employment tribunal in the New Year.
Under current employment legislation in Scotland he has 12 weeks and six days from the date of dismissal to take the SFA to a tribunal.
