The Scottish Football Association will not ask FIFA to enforce Mark McGhee’s touchline ban at his new club, Barnet.
McGhee was given a six-game suspension on March 16 for an incident when he was Motherwell manager in which he was involved in a verbal exchange with an Aberdeen supporter that escalated into a further argument with the referee and fourth official.
The 60-year-old, who was Scotland's assistant manager under Gordon Strachan, was sacked by Motherwell before the SFA handed out the ban, which will now only be reactivated if he returns to work at a Scottish club.
McGhee was appointed manager of Sky Bet League Two club Barnet on Monday, having left his role with the Scottish national team following their failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
Rossi Eames had been in charge of first-team matters at Barnet since April, first in caretaker charge before taking over on a permanent basis in May. The 32-year-old is staying with the club as their head of youth development.
