Police Scotland confirm received report into historic child abuse within football

Recommended Posts


Mad how James Dornan is now getting abuse from sellik fans about this. 

Actually reading what he's writing on twitter he now seems to have changed his tune quite a lot and appears to have grasped the severity of the situation. Have to give him credit for this.

I know it's completely mental. If it came out there was a paedophile ring at Rangers I'm sure there would be almost universal condemnation and demanding that severe punishment was handed out to the perpetrators, and a thorough enquiry to insure it could never happen again.

Is this the first step of people (Dornan) suspecting what’s coming attempting to turn the tables to show that they did raise their heads above the parapet and not have history show them as being complicit in silence? Hopefully this will be the first of a chain reaction of people turning on that club in an effort to salvage some of their ‘to date’ tarnished reputations. I don’t see any way that the ‘JM’ or Sturgeon cannot make some form of formal comment now without further damaging their ever decreasing legacy...

Jim McCafferty sentence: Legal action over child abuse is imminent, celtic warned

celtic FC will face a multimillion pound compensation claim “within months” unless it accepts responsibility for the paedophiles who preyed on young players, a senior lawyer has said.
The warning from Patrick McGuire, who has represented some of the victims, comes after Jim McCafferty, 73, a former club kitman and celtic Boys Club coach, was jailed for six years and nine months after admitting that he had molested boys over 24 years.
The jail sentence is the third to be handed down to former celtic Boys Club staff after Jim Torbett, 71, its founder, and Frank Cairney, 83, a coach, were imprisoned for sexually assaulting youngsters.
Gerard King, 66, the former chairman of the boys’ club, was convicted of abusing four boys and a girl while he was employed as a primary school teacher, but was not jailed.
Mr McGuire, a partner with Thompsons Solicitors, said that court action would be launched imminently unless the club changed its stance. 
celtic has expressed sympathy for the victims but has insisted that the boys club is a separate organisation and not its responsibility.
Mr McGuire said: “We have formally intimated a large number of claims on behalf of survivors of all the four named paedophiles that operated under the guise of the wider celtic umbrella. We continue to gather evidence and have got a lot of financial information. We have got the evidence of survivors, talking about the links.
“The case is being gathered and we absolutely will be going to court, and probably doing so in a matter of months, unless celtic’s tack changes.”
Mr McGuire argued that celtic should follow the precedent set by Manchester City, which has launched a compensation scheme for youngsters abused by Barry Bennell, a former youth coach and serial paedophile.
“celtic’s board and chief executive should stop hiding behind their lawyers and start looking at what Manchester City has done,” he said.
It has been reported that a claim could amount to more than £5 million.
celtic FC did not respond to a request for comment.

They will need more than £5m.man city put £30m aside.   And then we have people who have committed suicide over this and their kids who are now growing up without a father because of celtic as they knew and looked the other way. 

The media still trying to play it down as if my da committed suicide them I would be looking to sue  for a few million alone.

It could well be. But you know what the main thing is they address it.

The players abused could also have gone on to be a manager and then a pundit like say Strachan or Souness.

That's three careers lost and a lot of damages.

Grasps the severity?  Ffs How long have we all being discussing this?

The only severity he’s beginning to grasp is how his reputation (lack of/ integrity, (don’t laugh) will come out of the other side of it when things gather pace. I hope his input in to the narrative now is a tangible sign that things are eventually moving on in the right direction...

Reading through his replies/tweets it is clear he sees this as a problem with the Boy's Club. There is no mention of the fact that Cairney has just been convicted of crimes he committed under the employment of celtic and within the confines of Parkhead.

This has to be watched very carefully as he tries to peddle the myth that celtic are "not to blame" in all of this. 

The fact Dornan is coming out with 'he will be asking Liewell about what is being done to help the victims' makes me feel uneasy and it has probably been agreed before hand he would do this and of course say celtic are not to blame. I would not trust any of these :wanker: as far as I could through them and he is one fat looking prick.

He's already decided they are not guilty. Effectively saying they shouldn't take blame as it will be open season on them from a legal point of view. 

Again not one legitimate care for justice or the victims.
