SFA Considering Putting Down Plastic Pitch at Hampden in Bid to Improve Scotland National Team

The SFA are considering putting down a plastic pitch at Hampden in a bid to improve the Scotland national team, according to reports.

The Scottish football governing body has been the subject of intense criticism over recent seasons, but particularly lately due to the poor performance of the Scotland side.

Alex McLeish may reportedly lose his job due to the recent 3-0 defeat to Kazakhstan and poor performance against San Marino.

And questions are being asked of the SFA and how they are running the Scottish game.

Now, though, in a bid to improve the fortunes of the top team, it’s believed the SFA are considering laying down a plastic pitch at Hampden.

It’s believed they hope to copy the Kazakhstan model for success and also believe a plastic pitch could help them land Steve Clarke as manager in the near future.

There are also rumours that they’re keen to build the future of the national team around Kilmarnock after their brilliant Premiership season – hence the reason Stuart Findlay and Stephen O’Donnell recently got call-ups.
