Scottish FA CEO Stewart Regan Vows To Stick With Player Gambling Ban
Published September 25, 2013
A SERIOUS ISSUE: In Glasgow, Scott McDermott reported Regan also revealed that match-fixing in Scotland "is a serious issue after the SFA were made aware of 'activity' at low-level games recently -- where information is being fed back to Asia." Regan said, “We should certainly be aware of match-fixing. What we are seeing is evidence of activity in the stands, where individuals from Asia are commentating on matches into laptops and giving feedback." Regan believes that the three-game ban dished out to Black "will act as a warning." Regan said, “The Black case has brought a lot of attention and profile to the issue. If nothing else, it has heightened the issue and made it clear players shouldn’t bet, full stop" (DAILY RECORD, 9/24).
