  2. Cairney fails in attempt to get out of jail again, filthy bheast. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/4499428/celtic-boys-club-frank-cairney-freedom-rejected/?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1563448247 celtic Boys Club beast Frank Cairney had his second bid to be released from jail kicked out of court. The disgraced ex-coach had applied for bail while he challenges his conviction for preying on lads in the 1980s. Lawyers acting for the 84-year-old told the Appeal Court in Edinburgh that “Cairney’s heart problems meant that he was not a flight risk.” At a brief hearing at the Court of Session his lawyer said: “Mr Cairney suffers with heart problems and these ongoing issues mean he isn’t a flight risk. “Also, the risk of him reoffending is low. These offences are historical and took place some time ago. “He does have a fixed address and in relation to one of the victims who gave evidence its now came to light to this person has a conviction for dishonesty. “We don’t know to what extent this person's evidence was used as corroboration for the others.” Cairney was convicted of sickening attacks on young boys while running St Columba's Boys Guild in Viewpark, Lanarkshire, and the under-16 team at celtic BC. He was convicted of nine offences against eight boys in his care. Appeal Judge Lord Turnbull took just minutes to reject the application. He said “Mr Cairney was convicted on indictment as liable to nasty charges which also involved a breach of trust. The trial sheriff took all these matters into account at the time of sentencing. “I have to consider a number of factors when considering whether to liberate him from custody including the very serious nature of the offences. “I’m satisfied the application should not be granted and I therefore reject it.”
  3. Its a disgrace how they are being treated by the SNP govt they are just being blanked altogether when they should be given assurances that there will be a full independent inquiry on completion of investigations. I have seen with my own eyes the effect that stress can have on peoples health the SNP better watch out or they could end up with blood on their hands.
  4. John@TheWestEnclosure@watt_john Replying to @BOSkelper @RedBrickz26 Release of SFA report will not be end of August as promised but next year,2 more historic abuse in football cases still to be heard.celtic victims been told get ready to go to court very soon,which contradicts my original thoughts that they would settle.
  5. Lifted this from a ff poster. Got this response from Brian Whittle MSP Waiting on a few others Thank you for writing to me with your concerns surrounding historical child abuse within Scottish football. The reports that have emerged in recent years are extremely distressing, and while it is welcome that Jim Torbett and others have been convicted for their depraved acts, this issue clearly goes wider. Any further allegations of criminality must be swiftly investigated by the police so that further criminal proceedings can be brought where necessary. The Scottish Football Association’s Chief Executive has apologised to those young people who suffered sexual abuse in football and I think he was right to do so. The Independent Review of Sexual Abuse in Scottish Football commissioned by the SFA found child protection policies at all levels were and still are not fit for purpose. The report has made a number of recommendations to address this and I believe they should be implemented as soon as possible. It is vital that we in Parliament play our part in holding the SFA and other bodies to account on this. Further to this, my colleague Adam Tomkins, MSP for Glasgow, has written to Ian Maxwell, chief executive of the SFA and to Peter Lawwell, chief executive of celtic FC to seek urgent meetings on this subject. Through a series of criminal trials, we now know something of the scale of the abuse committed by a number of the men associated with celtic boys’ club. What we do not know is what celtic FC knew about these offences and when they knew it. These questions must now be independently and fully investigated and, if necessary, a compensation scheme should be established such as that set up earlier this year by Manchester City FC. It is clear that victims of child abuse in football have been let down, and I very much hope Police Scotland, clubs and the SFA will give them the closure they need and the justice they deserve. Please be assured the Scottish Conservatives will closely monitor developments on this matter over the coming weeks and months. Thank you once again for taking the time to contact me. Yours sincerely, Brian Whittle MSP
  6. Keep your mouth shut about celtics child abuse or we we will find a way to punish you is the message.

  8. Nothing Less Than Judicial Inquiry Will Do Judicial inquiry definition - A formal legal investigation conducted into a matter of public concern by a judge, appointed by the Government. Back in the mid 90’s, when Billy McNeill stated under oath in a court of law that “It was an open secret at Parkhead”, it was also fast becoming an open secret on the football terraces around Scotland. For over 20 years now, ordinary fans of our beautiful game the length and breadth of the country have been demanding that the relevant authorities take action with regards to the sexual abuse of children in the care of celtic FC. Shamefully, and until this day, requests to the Scottish Football Association to carry out the proper investigation required against one of their member clubs has been completely ignored. In the name of ‘sporting integrity’, this lack of action from the SFA is inexcusable. Latterly, similar requests to Police Scotland and their predecessor (Strathclyde Police) were also met with reluctance to get involved. When Jim Torbett was first tried in 1998, Hugh Birt (former celtic Boys Club Chairman) revealed in court that he had attempted to block Torbett’s return to the club in 1980 by reminding the then celtic FC board of Directors of the sexual abuse previously carried out by Torbett (between 1967-74), behaviour which led him to being kicked out of the Boys Club by the then celtic FC board of Directors and club Manager Jock Stein. Torbett’s criminal activity, which occurred between 1967-74 was never disclosed to the police by those in charge at celtic. In 1995, a celtic fan by the name of Gerry McSherry was given a list of 14 active paedophiles at celtic FC and celtic Boys Club by Hugh Birt who was by then so sickened by the continued cover up at celtic FC. Mr McSherry presented this information to Strathclyde Police who in turn only arrested 2 individuals, Jim Torbett & Frank Cairney. It took the bravery of several professional football players in England speaking out in November 2016 on the sexual abuse that they had suffered in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s to finally spur Police Scotland and the SFA to start taking complaints seriously. This, largely being down to the fact that it was fast becoming clear that there were many links between celtic FC and paedophile activity in English football. To date, the following 6 paedophiles connected to celtic FC have been convicted of sexual abuse of children in their care: Jim Torbett - (celtic Boys Club) John Cullen - (celtic FC) Neil Strachan - (celtic East Boys Club – Edinburgh) Jim McCafferty - (celtic FC) Gerald King - (celtic Boys Club) Frank Cairney - (celtic Boys Club) The further recent revelation that Jim McCafferty confessed to Belfast Live in 2016 that John Hughes (former celtic FC football player 1995-96) had also indulged in the sexual abuse of children during his time as Manger of Hibernian FC (1996-2000) makes you wonder just who was on that list of 14 names handed over and how many more lives may not now lie in ruins if the police had taken the necessary action at the time. It is no surprise to those that have been calling on action for decades that the sexual abuse of children at celtic FC and celtic Boys Club, which included sexual assault on celtic FC’s premises by celtic FC employees and others, is now being classed as a ‘paedophile ring’ and further investigations are ongoing into cross-border sex trafficking crimes between those paedophiles connected with celtic FC and Barry Bennell at Crewe and Bob Higgins at Southampton. What is equally frightening and disgusting is the growing list of people in positions of power at celtic FC who knew of the ongoing sexual abuse of children at the club yet refused to take the correct and moral action of reporting these crimes to the police. Robert Kelly - Chairman Desmond White - Chairman Jack McGinn - Chairman Kevin Kelly - Chairman Fergus McCann - Chairman Jock Stein - Manager Billy McNeill - Manager Liam Brady - Manager Lou Macari - Manager Tommy Burns - Manager All of the above people knew what was going on. Billy McNeill admitted it was an ‘open secret’ and Jock Stein instructed others to ‘keep the name of the club clean’. Why have the police at the very least never investigated these people? Every one of them still living should currently be facing charges of failing to report the systematic sexual abuse of children to the authorities. They have knowingly aided and abetted the continued sexual abuse of children. The Scottish mainstream media have also failed to act responsibly in this whole sorry mess. There has been a distinct reluctance in the media to firstly investigate the issue to the degree required and secondly, rather than do the job they are paid to do, some journalists(?) like Neil Cameron find the bizarre need to make crass comments accusing victim’s families of “exploiting the situation for financial gain”. The utterly repulsive Graham Spiers further suggests that football fans speaking out against the sexual abuse of children are only doing so in an attempt at “point scoring against celtic”. Such is Spiers’ media history of defending paedophiles, he may well soon be receiving a knock on the door from East Ayrshire Social Services department given the increasing concern he generates over the wellbeing of his children. If the media in Scotland had been doing their job properly your average member of the public wouldn’t have needed to campaign for over 2 decades for action to be taken. The media inaction has also facilitated the ongoing needless continued abuse of children in what is now widely regarded as the greatest sporting scandal in European (if not world) history. The Scottish Government have fared no better. The SNP, who have long coveted the Catholic/Republican vote in Scotland in an effort to boost their failing drive for independence at all costs have absolutely no desire to get involved in the celtic FC scandal as it is not in their best interests. That they would rather strive for independence than investigate a decades long known paedophile ring in Scottish football with links to sex trafficking across the UK tells you all you need to know of that party and their lack of scruples. The only way to reach full closure on the sordid history of celtic FC is for a full judicial inquiry into the paedophile ring that has been operating in and around celtic FC for the last 40 years. The truth needs to come out on the scale of the operation and who at celtic FC knew about it yet decided to cover it up. All individuals (still living) identified as covering up these abhorrent crimes should face criminal prosecution for their inaction. On completion of such an inquiry, the SFA, in the interests of sporting integrity, should impose suitable punitive measures against celtic FC. If the SFA are unwilling to do so then UEFA must step in and impose the required punishments on both celtic FC and the SFA. Nothing less will do. https://www.vanguardbears.co.uk/article.php?i=267&a=nothing-less-than-judicial-inquiry-will-do
  9. Even better they had hope right up to the penalty shoot out. Great to see their tears and pain may it happen again next year again.
  10. John Halley Advocate @AdvocateHalley I'm concerned that adverse news stories appear to be closed down in Scotland. The Scottish Govt's media advisers work hard at this all day, every day, at great cost to the public purse. Quote Tweet Michelle Gray @michellegray75 · 2h Replying to @AdvocateHalley and @IanKenn63047685 Exactly. I’m also astounded that this hasn’t been reported within the main stream media in Scotland....
  11. Picked this up from ff. celtic Football Club have refused to sever business links with child molester Jim Torbett. The club are still awarding lucrative contracts to Torbett's merchandising firm despite his conviction for assaulting young footballers. Officials promised to review commercial links with millionaire Torbett - who founded celtic Boys' Club - after he was jailed five months ago. But his company, The Trophy Centre, continue to supply official club merchandise, including clothing, scarves and mugs. One of his victims yesterday bitterly criticised the club for continuing to put money into Torbett's pocket. James McGrory, now 44, was one of three boys molested by Torbett, who was jailed for two years in November. Mr McGrory's lawyers have written to celtic to express his horror. Solicitor Iain Cochrane said: "Mr McGrory was surprised and distressed to discover celtic's continuing business relationship. "This was particularly surprising given the club's public comments at the time of the conviction." Mr Cochrane said the replies from Parkhead had been high-handed and dismissive and the club refused even to confirm that Torbett's company were still winning contracts. Company secretary Heather Barton merely insisted the club always acted "in the best interests of supporters". Torbett, 51, was jailed for molesting three young celtic Boys' Club players. Sheriff Margaret Gimblett told him: "These children were football mad with stars in their eyes. "You knew that and betrayed that trust. There can be no hiding place for people who abuse children." Torbett's abuse was exposed in a series of award-winning Daily Record articles in August 1996. He used his position as coach to abuse the boys, including Alan Brazil who went on to play for Scotland. Records at Companies House, in Edinburgh, reveal Torbett remains a director and principal shareholder of The Trophy Centre. Staff from the firm supported Torbett during his trial and Sheriff Gimblett revealed that only the testimonials they wrote on his behalf saved him from a longer sentence. Yesterday, Trophy Centre director Gerry McAleer confirmed the company continued to supply celtic but claimed not to know Torbett's status with the firm.

  12. Frank Cairney loses bail bid https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-48380551 An ex-celtic Boys Club manager jailed for sexually abusing young footballers has lost a bid to be released on bail while appealing his conviction. Frank Cairney, 83, was sentenced to four years in prison on nine charges dating back to the 1980s. He had asked to be granted bail on health grounds but the request was turned down by a judge at the Appeal Court in Edinburgh. Cairney was acquitted of similar charges 20 years ago. His trial at Hamilton Sheriff Court last December heard his victims had suffered badly from the abuse. Sheriff Daniel Kelly described Cairney as a "wolf in sheep's clothing". Cairney is among four former celtic Boys Club coaches to be convicted of child sex abuse in recent months. 'Deep regret' In November, Boys Club founder Jim Torbett was jailed for six years, while another coach, teacher Gerald King, was also convicted of abusing boys at a school. Earlier this month, 73-year-old Jim McCafferty was given a further jail sentenceafter admitting a series of child sex abuse crimes. He was sentenced to six years and nine months after he admitted 12 charges related to attacks on 10 teenage boys between 1972 and 1996. He was already serving a jail term for abuse. After the conviction of Torbett, celtic expressed "deep regret" for the victims but stressed the boys club was a separate entity. The club made a similar statement following the conviction of Cairney.
