Key play­ers in Labour lead­er­ship con­test

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

The long-term ally of Gor­don Brown will take over as in­terim leader but has al­ready ruled him­self out of the race to re­place Ms Dug­dale.

Mr Row­ley has been the party deputy leader for the past two years, but clashed with Ms Dug­dale last year over her calls for Jeremy Cor­byn to stand down.

He in­sisted yes­ter­day that he has no am­bi­tion to be First Min­is­ter of Scot­land and the next Labour leader must pre­pare to fill this role.
