The SFA are certainly not spoiled for choice when it comes to finding a new national manager with Mackay stepping up from his role as Performance Director.
For reasons of self projection Regan decided to go on TalkSPORT yesterday afternoon and on the eve of an international dismissed the prospects of the current caretaker.
Regan certainly doesn’t have the Midas touch as his CV illustrates with his TalkSPORT announcement taking his caretaker manager by surprise.
Asked if he had been made aware in advance of the announcement in advance Mackay told the Daily Record: “No, obviously not. I’m up here in Aberdeen and I was thinking about nothing else than the game.”
Earlier this season Regan was exposed as not knowing the pricing of Scotland international tickets after getting drawn into a twitter row.
