The FA’s Inclusion Advisory Board (IAB) may now seek to hold an emergency meeting over the issue, with one member telling BBC Sport the FA’s decision was “worse than weak”. Scudamore, who has held his position since 1999, made the comments in private emails passed to the Sunday Mirror by a former personal assistant.
Sports Minister Helen Grant was also critical of the comments.
She said: “I found the content of those emails completely unacceptable and very disappointing, particularly at a time when there is so much good work and progress being made promoting women’s sport.”
But FA chairman Greg Dyke has indicated the FA would not be acting over Scudamore’s discriminatory remarks.
