Pete Haynes has again called for Ian Maxwell to resign as chief executive of the SFA.

In July the new broom at the top of the Scottish game presided over a report into the historic failure of Scottish Football to deal with the issue of child abuse.

Incredibly Maxwell said that the SFA had failed children in the past citing the own examples of his kids playing the game. After Haynes took to social media the SFA hurriedly issued a correction to Maxwell’s offending interview with the BBC.

Haynes claimed that he had been abused by vile Hugh Stevenson, an SFA coach and referee/linesman who invited Haynes to the 1979 Scottish Cup Final as a 12-year-old, turned up at his home in SFA blazer and began a catalogue of abuse.

In 1993 the claims were taken to Strathclyde Police who duly ignored the matter with Jim Farry doing likewise at the SFA who have sat on the evidence for over 20 years before finally addressing the issues after scandals emerged in England.

Maxwell was back in the media this week following the Hampden announcement but appears to have taken no action despite his embarrassing u-turn over child abuse in July.
