Scottish Football Association chief executive Stewart Regan has denied British Olympic Association claims that all the home nations will represent Great Britain football at London 2012.

Regan’s BOA counterpart Andy Hunt revealed he had held discussions with the FA’s from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland about forming a football team.

He said he was ‘incredibly positive’ following discussions, but Regan has rubbished this assessment and claimed his players do not want to play.

“Our position remains: we are opposed to taking part in Team GB,” Regan told the SFA’s website.

“I was surprised by Andy Hunt’s comments, especially since we have had no dialogue with him.

“We signed a letter to FIFA in 2009 which gave the FA the right to represent the Home Nations as Team GB.

“We need to protect our identity and we have no interest in taking part.

“We have consulted with the Association of Tartan Army Clubs and they are opposed to participation in Team GB and we have also spoken with the squads, who have shown no appetite for it, either.”
