Scottish FA to open child sex abuse review
The Scottish Football Association (SFA) has announced it is to establish an independent review into allegations of child sex abuse within the sport.
Football has been rocked by claims from former players that they were abused by people in positions of authority.
The SFA said it "has taken initial steps'' towards establishing the scope of the review to see what lessons can be learnt but stressed that Police Scotland remains the main investigatory authority regarding reports of abuse in the sport.
The announcement of the review follows meetings between the SFA, police and representatives from PFA Scotland.
