The net is tightening at celtic. All those men who touched those young boys should be hung from the nearest tree. Fucking dispicable crimes to commit.

Celtc are in a very deep hole and this statement today confirms the they are digging themselves in even deeper.

But solicitor Patrick McGuire, who represents several abuse survivors, criticised the club.

He said: "It would be charitable to celtic to describe this as too little, too late.

"There is no apology. There is no acknowledgement of Celtics failures.

"There is no willingness to pay compensation and to follow the lead of Manchester City, particularly as we know some of the abuse took place when McCafferty was employed by celtic and was in a position of considerable influence and power within the celtic football club youth set-up."

celtic's statement on the latest case was published on the club's website at 16:10 on Friday.

It comes on the eve of the Scottish Cup Final which will see the club take on Hearts at Hampden.

Mr McGuire, of Glasgow-based law firm Thompsons, condemned the timing as "cynical in the extreme".

He said: "The conviction and sentencing of McCafferty was over a week ago.

"To put this statement out late on a Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend on the day the prime minister resigns and before a potential Treble Treble weekend for the club is appalling.

"It is insult to everyone who suffered abuse and to their families.

"It is the worst kind of PR low cunning and casts the club in an even worse light than before. Every member of the celtic board should hang their heads in shame. "

well said that man.

That's the third re-draft of their very first statement, with a tweak here and there! Almost two weeks and that's all they have? Embarrassing.

Fuckin sickening statement. Pontius fucking Pilate.  Nobody's buying that pish.

Wow, that does seem like someone who is not going to fold at the behest of Liewell.

I have a problem with them calling the victims "young people." They were children ffs!

I suspect that was a deliberate choice of words by them to minimise the impact (if it was possible).

They can’t even bring themselves to say who was involved, let alone accept collective responsibility.

Horrible bastards but I guess it beats the last statement about him where he left with their best wishes to continue the abuse at other clubs.

They didn’t mention that part in their shameful statement did they. 👍👍

They knew what he was when he left scum FC, but not a word to anyone. 

They should burn that shithole of a stadium down.
