The Scottish FA sends it's condolences to the family of Gary Speed and our friends and colleagues at the Football Association of Wales on this sad day.

Scottish FA Chief Executive Stewart Regan: "I am shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of Gary Speed. Craig Levein and I were with him last week at the World Cup fixtures meeting in Brussels and he was in good spirits. Our thoughts go out to Gary's family, and our friends at the Football Association of Wales at this desperately sad time."

Scotland National Coach Craig Levein: "Football has lost a real talent and a gentleman; Gary was a young manager with the world at his feet. Stewart Regan and I were laughing and joking with him just last week. He was doing some fantastic work with the Welsh national team and I was looking forward to pitting my wits against him over the next couple of years.  My deepest sympathies go out to Gary's family and the football community in Wales."
