Former Scotland international Doddie Weir says the Scottish Rugby Union has taken the first step towards restoring credibility by sacking Matt Williams.
"I'm quite glad that the SRU is being accountable for the first time in a long time," said Weir.
"It is nice to see them stand up and try to get some credibility back.
"Scottish rugby is at rock-bottom just now and getting credibility back meant removing Matt Williams. But I'm sad that it has come to this."
Weir admits that past experience taught him not to assume that Williams would be sacked.
"It definitely wasn't inevitable that he would go because of the way the SRU has worked in the past," he added.
"But he was in charge of 17 games and won three of them - if that was a player, they would have been replaced and the same applies to him."
