Byline: STEPHEN STEWART

FOOTBALL boss Alex Smith's restaurant has been put out of business by the smoking ban.

And the Falkirk coach struck a deal to avoid going bankrupt when Smith's in Stirling went bust over debts.

The former St Mir ren, Aberdeen and Dundee United manager agreed to a trust deed to avoid being sequestrated.

Smith, 70, said: "I have been in business since 1972 and I'm looking to retire from that business. The business has been closed for a few months now.

"Its just one of those things. There has been a downturn with various things in last few years, especially since the smoking ban came in.

"My assets covered most outlays - I have a trust deed to wind the business up."

Kenny Craig, director of RSM Tenon, has been appointed trustee to Smith, from Bridge of Allan, Perthshire.

He said: "A trust deed has been signed by Mr Smith to wind up the estate for the benefit of his creditors."
