  2. 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....
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. Have the SFA launched a full and forensic examination of the minutes from celtic board meetings and accounts to see if there have been any payoffs or discussions within the cesspit regarding child abuse ? No I didn't think so. They are just as guilty of the cover up. Also when will SPFL supporters of all the the other teams including us put pressure on their various chairmen to hold celtic to account for these atrocities against children or does that shit only happen when its Rangers and ebt's
  6. Check this out the Andrew Grays mum tweeted this video from 29.20 mins in.
  7. This is getting very sinister. Andrew Grays Mum @HeleneG46816352 Replying to @HeleneG46816352 @glasgowcathcart and 5 others As the mother of one of the victims who sadly lost their life through all of this, you’re actions & behaviour is despicable.And while I’m here, can you ask whoever it is that is tapping mine & my daughter phones to please stop. We have NOTHING to hide. #AndrewGray
  8. Ha ha ha injury time winner for Caley, get it up ye ya wee beggars.
  9. John (thee) Stevens MBE‏ @pzj_1483 36m36 minutes ago More So it begins again on Thursday the 7th March when the trial of the disgusting celtic coach/kitman McCafferty begins. A truly awful period & shame for celtic FC again begins to unravel.
  10. Would a Scottish national newspaper have knowledge of such a letter? Reply John (thee) Stevens MBE‏ @pzj_1483 14m14 minutes ago 100% More I suppose they must be weighing up the fiscal aspect of basically losing half of their readership with truth and justice. Reply John (thee) Stevens MBE‏ @pzj_1483 Well to be fair to them they even gave the club a right to reply........That is done now just await the story.........
  11. Now what if a letter existed that shows that celtic FC asked boys & their families was it all right for Frank Cairney to return to celtic after 1990 when he resigned? Now that would be utterly disgusting would it not? 5:59 AM - 2 Mar 20191 New conversationSir Walter Smith‏ @Im_oot_Ma_EBTs 9m9 minutes ago More Replying to @pzj_1483 No chance 1 reply0 retweets2 likes John (thee) Stevens MBE‏ @pzj_1483 5m5 minutes ago More Oh there is letters my good friend

    Alkass cup

    The young guns dominated from start to finish could easily have been 7 or 8, lots of talent on show here especially young Coombs. Fair enjoyed the game and looking forward to the final on Friday.
