Surprised at Sky mate , if this true . Didn't expect them to go on the attack with the mutants

Yea, was quite a lengthy piece, outside the paedodome and everything, it didn't hold back.

Mainstream news, hopefully this is just the start and the truth will come out and those cunts are held accountable, and finally justice for the victims like Kenny Campbell, who told it like it is.

Patrick McGuire, of Thompsons Solicitors, is representing some of McCafferty's victims in civil cases.

He called for action from celtic Football Club.

"McCafferty's connection with celtic is now utterly undeniable," he said.

"We now know that some of the abuse took place in celtic premises. What he did was groom the boys but at the same time groom the parents, always with celtic dangling on the end of a stick as a golden carrot. It's just utterly unforgivable.

"McCafferty's conviction is probably the last conviction that we'll see in a celtic setting. But what's never happened is any form of financial justice for the survivors of abuse at celtic Park and that's why now all eyes are on the board of celtic Football Club to do the right thing."

James Torbett:   Convicted and imprisoned in 1998 and again in 2018 of historical sexual abuse.  This man formed celtic Boys Club in 1966. He was “sacked” from the Boys Club in 1974 by Jock Stein the celtic FC manager when the latter was made aware of the sexual abuse.    After Jock Stein had left celtic FC, Torbett once again became involved with celtic Boys Club from 1980 until 1996. 

 

James McCafferty:  Convicted and imprisoned in 2018 of historical sexual abuse.  He was employed by celtic FC in the period 1990 to 1996 when he “quit” mysteriously.  McCafferty was involved with the youth team and Boys Club.  Convicted a second time for offences carried out between 1972 and 1996.

Gerald King: Former chairman of celtic Boys Club convicted in 2018 with historical sexual abuse offences.   King was involved with the Boys Club for many years.   He also used to work for Torbett.  Charges relate to a period between 1983 and 1989.

 

Frank Cairney:  celtic Boys Club chairman replaced Torbett and was involved with Torbett returning to the Boys Club.  Resigned in 1991 after accusations on a US tour with the Boys Club.   Convicted in 2018 with numerous counts of historical sexual abuse.

...

Jim McCafferty, 73, was a coach and kit man for the celtic youth team who also worked for celtic Boys Club.

He was sentenced to six years and nine months in prison. He was already serving a jail term for abuse. ...

... 

Last November celtic Boys Club founder Jim Tobett was jailed for six years for sexually abusing three boys over eight years.

Earlier this year, the boys club's former chairman, Gerald King, was given a three-year probation order for sexually abusing four boys and a girl in the 1980s.

And in February Frank Cairney, a former manager of the boys club, was jailed for four years after being convicted of nine charges of sexually abusing young footballers.

...

 

Seems pretty lenient in all cases. Don't know what Cullen and Strachan got.

Strachan, who attempted to rape an 18-month-old boy and assaulted a six-year-old, was sentenced to a minimum of 16 years.

Torbett got 2 years then this - celtic Boys Club founder Jim Torbett has been jailed for six years after being convicted of sexually abusing three boys over an eight-year period.

They only had a small slot. Maybe we will get a new documentary cause it seems they are still investigating.

He was coach and kitman. Either way he worked directly for them.

Yes that will be difficult to change since as you say he held both positions employed by them.
