Scottish FA chief executive Stewart Regan resigned from his post atop Scottish football on Thursday afternoon – and Rangers fans were only upset that it took so long.

Regan spent eight years leading the national association and has had countless run-ins with the Ibrox giants over the last six years since they entered administration.

The news was confirmed by the Scottish FA in a statement released on their official Twitter account.

Many fans hold Regan reponsible for the shambolic handling of Rangers’ administration and then liquidation in 2012.

Gers fans were over the moon – like most fans in Scotland – with most only wishing it had come sooner.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Regan joined the Scottish FA from Yorkshire County Cricket Club in 2010 replacing former Rangers striker Gordon Smith in charge of the SFA.

Since taking charge, Regan has constantly been embroiled in controversy such as the referee strike, Rangers’ financial meltdown, the continued failure of the Scottish national team and the shameful response to the violence which marred the end of the 2016 Scottish Cup final.

With no manager and no chief executive, the Scottish FA are in shambles at a critical time ahead of the implementation of their ‘Project Brave’ blueprint  to overhaul youth development in Scotland and the search for Gordon Strachan’s replacement.

In other Rangers news, Chris Sutton took a swipe at Gers fans after the win against Fraserburgh.
