Scottish FA joins call for election delay

LONDON - The Scottish FA followed its English counterpart on Tuesday in calling for FIFA to postpone president Sepp Blatter's unopposed re-election because of the crisis surrounding world football's governing body.

"We believe the election should be rescheduled to facilitate a period of consultation to deal with the issues that have arisen in recent weeks," Scottish FA chief executive Stewart Regan said in a statement.

"The events of the last two days, in particular, have made any election unworkable."

Blatter is standing for a fourth term on Wednesday.
