              === Red Bulls hire Roxburgh as Sporting Director ===
 
 Harrison,  NJ (Sports  Network) - On the back of the club's disappointing exit
 from the 2012 MLS Cup playoffs, Red Bull New York announced Friday that it has
 hired Andy Roxburgh to serve as Sporting Director.
 
 Roxburgh,  the former Scotland manager and technical director of UEFA, will be
 responsible for all soccer-related activities at the club.
 
 "I  am excited  and honored to be given the opportunity by Dietrich Mateschitz
 to  contribute to  the development of such an outstanding soccer organization,
 as  the New York Red Bulls," Roxburgh said in a statement. "I'm also delighted
 to  be getting  involved  in  Major League  Soccer,  which  has an  impressive
 reputation as a fast growing and highly competitive league."
 
 Roxburgh is set to begin at his new post immediately.
