The team are far from finished mate. Really good to see media people from England wanting
to get involved in this.

We always knew, as a team, what the media were like up here, not to mention wee
Krankie & her convicted Justice Minister, so they'll be exposed on a national level
in the months to come.
GY do the English media realise just how big a story this really is ?

Appreciate if you can't say much G, but have you spoke to the media up here? Have they approached you guys? Have they put up resistance when approached?
No media up here apart from one J.

For some reason :)) we are getting much more attention from the UK media,
but to be honest these people are TRUE JOURNALISTS and award winning at
that mate.

Good to hear someone finds decades of child abuse and the associated cover up by one the largest football clubs in the country a story.

The media up here are an utter disgrace, the dogs on the street knew. So did they.

100% mate.

They should be truly embarrassed.

The Sun have just once again copied The Times story, as they nearly always do but,
as you imply, this was a potential award winning story for at journalist in Scotland &
they are 'nearly' all avoiding it.

And there's more angles being worked on by the team too.

I went to Kelvinside Academy (90-96) and c.10% of the boys were RC. Privately educated RCs tend to go to St Als. Further, he is more likely to be a rugby man than into football.
Always used to think Mr Mullholand was nonce material ;-)
I'm class of '93 lads.

Loads of Gers fans, quite a few Bairns, and a whole bunch of 'rugger' (cringe!!) and cricket nuts. Can only actually think of 1 Celtic fan off top of my head in my whole year. Undoubtedly more but they certainly weren't vocal or numerous thats for sure. A few staunch teachers as well btw. Not a cult hotbed by any stretch.

Unfortunately, we have to live with the fact that Craig Whyte was fleetingly a part of our numbers. Jim White another former boy (both Rangers fans in ther own way) :mad: And now this Gary Smith character at BBC. As you say, very slim chance of him being part of the cabal, so much more likely he's pulled the podcast for legal reasons rather than anything nefarious.

Bit harsh on Mulholland btw.

I am very surprised that Private Eye have not uptaken the story. They usually call it how it is when the rest of the press ( up here anyway ) seem to be ignoring such a MASSIVE story. It seems much bigger and on a wider scale than any other paedophile ring case which were deemed significant enough to make documentaries and full blown films on. Furthermore, the fact that the press up here ARE ignoring it is potentially a huge story in itself.
Is the press holding back on this because of sub judice rules or fear of being sued, or perhaps complicit in the continued cover up?

The sporting governing authorities , the Scottish government ( especially the justice secretary ) the police , the mhedia all must be getting worried as this escalates . Their non participation I'm sure , will be highlighted in court and then we'll see them turn on each other ....be worried bhoys be very worried , you deserve everything coming to you.

I have contacted them a number of times. From what was said, on here, about how they gather their stories, I suspect that their man, whoever he is, keeps saying that there is nothing in it. It's just football supporters.
To say I am disappointed is an understatment

What do you think the SFA report will say about Celtic re-employing TWO known paedophiles, after internally squashing scurrilous rumours about their activities?

If it's nothing (which I'm pretty sure it would have been if they'd released the report when it was due)... what will be the reason given that the author of the report can't do interviews? I'm going for mental health issues or claims of online bullying.

Or, I wonder, is he taking advice from the ‘wrong’ people ? Maybe with the release of recent further evidence destroying the separate entity defence, they must see this is way beyond ‘football supporters’.

Doncaster, Mulraney, Petrie, with Lawwell's hand up their Forrest Gump Buttox from behind ?

With abuser Neil Strachan's mate Henry on the review team ?

It was DESTINED to be a cover up mate. Children clearly don't matter to them.

If, or when, there is a documentary about this I would have on screen at the intro:

Is there any justice for Celtic FC's victims of child sexual abuse?

Camera hovers over Celtic badge.

Camera pans out revealing the badge is attached to the top worn by Justice Minister.


Not when the Justice Minister openly supports the crimes...

His lack of action is worse than many of those involved with Celtic who turned a blind eye to it.

In paisley centre at bottom of escalators at R.S.Mc call
The Trophy Centre in Paisley used to be at Neilston Road just by the cross, just up from Army Navy store on the corner.
Pretty sure Country Sports ended up in the shop when they moved nearer Paisley town centre.

I got round to watching Spotlight and Athlete A . Harrowing stuff upsetting at the end in Athlete A when the girls/women stood up in court and read out their impact statements . Then there's Spotlight with the lengths the cult will go to protect their own .
Whats happened at parkhead is a hybrid of both these cases regarding sport and religion . I cant wait for that vile football club their enablers gets whats coming for them land more importantly justice and some sort of closure for the many victims

If the evidence from here makes court and the wider world the SFA "independent" is going to look shamefully weak. Possibly (probably) even completely wrong.

Cheers Grigo. Sorry to hear that mate.

I'd love to know the others that were on his list. I bet he'd love to be heard after all those years.

We may not have heard the last of Gerry. He definitely had a lot of fire in his belly.
Agree TS, but would he talk to us ?

He's a good human being but we might be a step too far, especially if he's not feeling
great physically.
