The SFA seem to have been under scrutiny for almost the entire season.
Whether it’s player disciplinary issues, refereeing decisions or the lack of plans to introduce VAR to the SPL, there’s been a constant sense of discontent.
Now, fan behaviour is in the spotlight and Kris Boyd has hit out at the governing body, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
The former Rangers striker alleged he was subjected to abuse whilst playing for Kilmarnock against Celtic in February [Sky Sports].
Incidents have abounded since then. Most recently, Derek McInnes was allegedly on the receiving end of derogatory chanting during the Scottish Cup semi-final at the weekend [BBC Sport].
“The SFA have been able to look after certain clubs better than others, I would say”, said Boyd, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“Come up with something. Fix this before our game is left in tatters. On the field things are good, but there are idiots off it who need to be dealt with.”
By comparison, there has been little in the way of tangible action from the SFA.
Perhaps they are trying to get through to the end of the season, before making changes.
It’s abundantly, though, that there needs to be a shake-up as the plethora of issues off the pitch, are undoubtedly detracting from everything that’s happening on it.
