Wouldn't touch it for all the tea in China. No interest in working club media anymore. I once really wanted to but not for me anymore. At least, not in Scotland.

The dude¬†doth protest too much, methinks ūü§£

Stopped reading when the first name mentioned is Rangers  Fenian bastard 

The dude has on a number of occasions stated he doesn’t want to talk or write about child abuse but at every opportunity jumps in to say aye but what about Rangers  I find this a bit strange tbh 

celtic (or boys club) - 6 convicted in court of law - 35 mentions Rangers - zero convictions - 25 mentions Hibs - knew a paedo existed but informed no one. Jim McCafferty worked for Hibs too. Co

While Stewart Robertson, the Rangers MD, bans or bars journalists galore from Ibrox - a hallmark of his time at the club - I am astounded he and Rangers have still not uttered a cheep of regret over historic child sex abuse. That SFA report was 5 days ago now. Sheer cowardice.

Nothing I've never said on here. Club media in Scotland is really poorly paying at most clubs and doesn't really appeal to me anymore. I was approached about a Comms/PR role at an SPFL not that long ago and turned it down.

A rather pathetic attempt at becoming relevant. 

We have already apologised previously for our isolated case and I don't see much that would change in that apology. We done the right thing at the time and it stands. 

However, there is that elephant in the room with the decades of systemic child abuse and 7 of their associated staff convicted, but let's just ignore that. Where are his calls for justice for the victims? 

Some are intent in labelling us as bad as them and it will all be OK then. No need to bother about the victims. Having us labelled is justice enough in their minds, such is their inbred hatred. 

They are detestable despicable bastards that need put out their misery along with that odious cunt. 

A previous poster stated that we should not judge our actions regarding this based on what they cunts do/done. 
 

we should not ever be using them as a reference point. 
 

ever.

I'm not. What I am pointing to is that every hater is doing their utmost in ignoring them to label us. 

Also, in a societal sense, that the perps/organisations who perp such a heinous crime should be called out and brought to book, irrespective of what team you support. Its not a pissing contest, but all about justice and yet the elephant in the room after all these decades has yet to be excised.

Gordon Woods (A Celtic C.S.A. Victim/Survivor)

 

Graham Spiers is complicit in protecting Celtic F.C. His complicity has kicked many victims in the teeth whilst many are at their lowest emotionally through this report. To use this issue to garnish response is by far one of the lowest acts of a journalist I have ever seen.

Yes they’re an absolute disgrace and doing interviews in lobby’s 

I really couldn't believe how badly they treated the Gray family.  I've listened to the family giving details of meetings and the discussions  and everything they have said makes complete sense.  A very clear storyline of the entire terrible time they have gone through.  To then hear how this report has twisted the events is utterly reprehensible.  As I listened to her speak I could identify exactly why she was so upset.  The exasperation, disappointment and anger was obvious in her voice, I could feel the emotion.    How she remains quite as dignified says a great deal about her.

I’ve known Michelle since since she was in her twenty’s and was alway very straight laced and honest and the way her and her mum have been treated is actually scandalous. It does seems that everyone, even to this day is only interested in protecting the name of that club and the reputations of all the previous managers who all knew and to me in all honesty their names are forever in the gutter and no big cup will ever change that. If that’s how they feel, can you imagine how Andrew and the other victims felt. I said from the start, the sfa report is a complete whitewash.
