FORMER SFA president George Peat has claimed the car crash that is Scottish football has 'hit a brick wall'.
Peat, who stepped down last year after four years at the top of our country's game, told how he is relieved to be out of the firing line as Scotland's top men battle to bring balance back to Scottish football.
And now the former administrator, who commissioned Henry McLeish's Review of Scottish Football, is hoping that the chaos engulfing our national game can be cleared to offer a path forward for all clubs.
He said: "When I left the SFA, the relationship between the SPL and the SFL was good. People looked at things from the same point of view.
"I hope that what has happened at Rangers hasn't blown it all apart but from an administration point of view, Scottish football has hit a brick wall.
"After the McLeish report came out, we were all working together on the way forward.
"Nobody could foresee what was about to happen."
He added: "I believe Stewart Regan has been unfairly criticised. Someone has to take the lead and he did.
"He has to try to act as a go-between, between the SPL and SFL. He is not going to please everybody."
Meanwhile, Clyde are looking for the wording in the vote to allow Rangers into the SFL to be changed.
Issues that will be voted on include their membership and if they will be granted entry into the First Division.
But the Broadwood club, following a meeting on Monday, have written to clubs over concerns that no mention of Third Division could lead to a loophole for admission into the First Division.
