SFA chief Stewart Regan apologises over past failings

The chief executive of the Scottish Football Association has apologised for his organisation's failure to take allegations of child abuse seriously.

Stewart Regan said he was "sickened" after hearing claims that a young player was systematically abused by senior assistant referee and youth coach Hugh Stevenson in the early 1980s.

In his first interview since the emergence of a spate of child sex allegations in football, Mr Regan said the SFA now had a zero tolerance approach to child abuse.
