Don't forget this has been a topic on the board for more years than there should have been,over the years there have been loads of posters with great info. We are all doing our bit, all the information is out there it just needs exposure.

Sadly years ago many of the old bloggers were labelled as cranks and bigots by too many unwilling to believe this could actually happen, times have changed.

Glad to do my bit, the victims must have their day and be heard.

Outstanding resolve mate ;)

Make no mistake,if we can get the police and journalists in usa interested enough to pick up the story of cairney and do their investigations thoroughly,then we can ramp up the pressure on the mp's here for a public inquiry by letting them know,due to their silence,we brought it to the attention of the world now.

We need the name of the boy mate. Maybe only the lawyer has that ?

Just had this reply from Lisa@theobserver.com

I have received multiple emails, 7 today. I will not be able to move forward unless I have actual police reports, testimony from parents/victims. No one has sent the information I requested, it is with our local police and my staff will see if we had anything in our older issues. Please respect my time, unless you can provide facts I would appreciate

My reply,

Hi Lisa,

Many thanks for your speedy reply. It's greatly appreciated.

Police reports could be an issue, as the club covered up the abuse (and continue to do so to this day). Hopefully this and many other details will come out when the victims get their day in court.

Regarding the testimony from parents/victims you would like, I highly doubt that would be available before the inevitable multiple court cases come to fruition too.

If I can get my hands on any of the relevant information that you've requested, I'll definitely get back to you with it as soon as I possibly can.

Thanks for your time.

Regards,


So, I'd suggest not 'bombarding' this lady with the similar information we have as it may hinder her dealing with this. She was quite specific (see above) in her request, but it will prove difficult at this time to obtain it before the court cases begin.

WATP
Your first paragraph is in the process of happening. A representative has made contact.

Peter Kearney did not like Kevin Kelly's name being linked with the pedo ring in a private conversation , this is the one to go for ... Kevin Kelly is at the centre of a pedophile ring at celtc park.

Just adding for any journalists looking in, Peter Kearney was privvy to pre trial testimony and was an avid persuader not to go to the police ...

The article in the DR stated that Pat Brannigan was very uncomfortable with the CBC chosen route.
I've got some concerns the historical articles have been 'doctored'.

The insertion of one line appears in numerous articles now archived on various sites. Yet I do not recall reading that line in any articles at the time....

It is an independent organisation and, while not officially part of Celtic FC, it has a long and proud association with Parkhead.

There is a stench here with this sudden repeated emergence of that outright lie.

Anyone else remember that far back reading these articles and seeing that comment? There would surely have been something said at the time had any publication suggested they're A SEPARATE ENTITY in the 80's and 90's!

There is a mod on here that seems to collect newspapers. He probably has originals.

It was on that site I took the quote mate.

How easy is it for the mhanky darkweb to infiltrate and change or edit a historical article. Rest assured that they are reading and monitoring this thread. They will be actively emailing every address we post and bombarding them with shit like 'the rangers are a pyure criminals that lie and smear the famous glasgae sellik nat no!'

Bears on twitter. Look up this guy @turneresq . He is a lawyer and soccer writer in America. He specializes in soccer law journalism. He might be interested in this story. Twitter is the only way I know to contact him.

Good call. There could be a Pulitzer and a lot of earning potential for his blog:

https://mobile.twitter.com/turneresq?lang=en

I also expect any lurkers monitoring this thread to bombard him with lies and post the address above reluctantly.

As long as we stick to the facts with links to back them up, then hopefully he will be able to differentiate from the noise. But hopefully if they are trying to deflect it shows the journalists that there is something behind all of this.

You would think so.i'd love to know what else that lawyer has.
Interesting to see lisa asking about the texan lawyer,wonder what he has also.
I sent her the details of the Texan lawyer. She’s very interested in that. It was along with the first email I sent her. She’s not the only reporter working on it now. Also other contacts in NJ are being informed.

I can only give what I can remember as a young footballer who had aspirations to be a prof. The general consensus was in my day that the best chance of turning prof was to go to Celtic BC as they were connected to the club. Rangers BC was just a club using the name Rangers and had totally no connection to the club. I am talking about the seventies.

There will be original newspaper records kept on file surely somewhere where this can be checked and verified, it’s a line I don’t recall reading either.

Yes, we can do that mate, it's called shaming them into action.

We shouldn't need to prompt them, but it is Scotland 2019 after all. I'm so ashamed of this country at times and this is one of them.

Tommy, can you please PM me? Thanks.

I think there were rangers boys clubs all over the place. The one local to me (In the north) had no connections

Not sure if this actually works but any changes to articles on the BBC site should be visible here http://newsdiffs.org/

What is the hold up at the moment with compensation claims or Celtic being taken to court for their part in the cover up?

Are the SFA holding this up or is their other cases to be resolved first?

Given the role Kevin Kelly has in the middle of this and his links to Torbett surly he should be taken in for questioning.

McGinn and Mcsherry need questioned under oath

That’s not the type of language that you’d use in the 80’s , that’s modern day speak imo

If that was genuine it would have been worded differently , looks like the club like no other are doctoring archives ,the question is why ? if they’ve nothing to hide

I agree with you. It 100% reads like it was scripted in the last few weeks.

What article did this come from?

What articles are they @George Goudie?

I’m sure collectively we could do a bit of research into the original copies.

Bobafett Bear; Notwithstanding that it was long after the horse had bolted;

(1) If that text is accurate," WHY DID CELTIC" issue (assume they composed it) that document? (on cfc logo paper?)
(2) Did they make sure & retain the signed receipt of issue on CFC
Filing System.
(3) Smacks of Wee Fungus; too protect his investment & make it look like there was actual paper work kept in order, for any likely visit by follow on departments maybe?
Totally agree WB the Bunnet knew all along and is as complicit as the bloody rest of them bro
