Regan Blown Off Course
Written by RockSport on February 2, 2018
Stewart Regan said he had faced “challenging head winds” after stepping down as Scottish Football Association chief executive.
His failure to secure Michael O’Neill as national coach, the controversy over Scotland’s end-of-season friendlies, the uncertainty over Hampden Park and the lack of a sponsor to replace Vauxhall have all been cited as reasons for his departure.
Former first minister Henry McLeish says Scottish football “is in desperate need” of reform following Stewart Regan’s resignation.
Regan left his post as Scottish FA chief executive on Thursday after nearly eight years in the role.
McLeish authored a two-part review of Scottish football in 2010 and many of his recommendations have been implemented by Regan.
“There are far too many agendas in Scottish football,” said McLeish.
