Dominic McKay, the official who helped bring former Australia manager Ange Postecoglou to Celtic, has stood down as the club's chief executive just months after joining.

The former chief operating officer of Scottish Rugby began work at the Glasgow club on April 19 before officially succeeding the outgoing chief executive Peter Lawwell on July 1.

However, Celtic announced on Friday that McKay, who was instrumental in the appointment of new manager Postecoglou, has stood down from his position for personal reasons.

Celtic's director of legal and football affairs Michael Nicholson has been appointed to the board of Celtic plc as acting chief executive officer.

The 45-year-old McKay joined Celtic in 2013 as company secretary and head of legal and was promoted to director of legal and football affairs in 2019.
