Stewart Regan Resigns as the SFA’s Chief Executive After Michael O’Neill Snub

Stewart Regan has officially resigned as the SFA’s chief executive this afternoon, following his failure to find a successor for Scotland boss Gordon Strachan.

The SFA confirmed Regan’s departure in a statement shared by Clyde Superscoreboard on Twitter, stating that while he oversaw a “range of changes” during his time in the post, he has decided to leave after eight years at Hampden.

Regan adds, We are now at another staging point and I recognise that it is now time for further change. I have now decided it it time to step aside to allow new leadership to take the organisation forward:


Regan was of course fiercely criticised by the Tartan Army after he failed to secure Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill as Strachan’s successor, despite weeks of talks and speculation.

And with Regan now leaving his post, it appears less likely than ever that a new manager will be appointed in the near future.

Where does Regan’s resignation leave the SFA? Are wholesale changes needed if Scotland are to qualify for a major tournament again?
