SFA chief executive Stewart Regan says the governing body has done all it can to stage its first-ever major football championships as it emerged Uefa could snub Hampden Park as one of the hosts for Euro 2020.

Glasgow goes up against 18 other cities today for the right to host part of the first-ever pan-European finals.

Although Uefa’s technical report flagged up a number of flaws in the Scottish bid, which received the least favourable assessment of all the home nations, Regan said many of the problems had been ironed out.

“We put a very strong case forward and although the Uefa report highlighted one or two areas, we have got back to them and said we will deliver everything that is required,” he said. But he admitted: “There are four bids from the UK and Ireland and I think it is highly unlikely all four are going to be hosts.”
