Scottish FA Needs 'Much Bigger Ambition' - Henry McLeish

The man whose review of Scottish football became a blueprint for the future of the game has strongly criticised the Scottish FA for failing to reach many of its targets.

Former first minister Henry McLeish feels "let down" by an SFA board he says are "decades behind".

His review led to the publication of 'Scotland United: A 2020 Vision'.

"There have been some minor successes but we really haven't achieved the goals that were set out," said McLeish.

"It's a question of attitude and I come back to this point I've constantly stressed: the SFA structure is still old-fashioned. It's decades behind and if you look at some of the more promising countries of the world, they're going massively forward and it's all about investment in elite talent."
