Falkirk have already qualified for the Europa League after reaching the Homecoming Scottish Cup Final where they will play SPL champions Rangers.

Hearts and and Aberdeen captured two other places through finishing third and fourth respectively in the SPL.

Celtic and Rangers will take part in the Champions League, with the Ibrox men going straight into the group stages.

SFA chief executive Gordon Smith is pleased that Scotland have six European representatives for next season.

He said: "My congratulations go to Motherwell and I wish them all the best for their European adventure next season.

"Getting into Europe shows what can be achieved when the game is played in the right manner.

"It is a lesson to everyone who plays the game and the whole country can be proud of this achievement.

"It is now down to all six of our teams who play in Europe next season to do well and to keep on pushing our co-efficient in the right direction.

"We can all look forward to the year ahead with a real sense of excitement."
