Why does this government think it's ok to spend people's tax money for the benefit of cfc

Because they work hand in glove with the Roman Catholic church in Scotland to minimise the catastrophic domino effect that will cascade like a tsunami through so much of the new Scottish establishment.

It is very clear this a concerted attempt to manage the scenario to ensure maximum time wasting, obfuscation, 'loss' of evidence and memory and, hopefully the mobilisation of the hordes to self police silence in their community.

Stinks.

Wouldn't be surprised if they went to Peterborough as well.
Bob Higgins was there at the same time as Carson I believe.

Celtic through the years seemed to have benefited from a couple of clubs in England in particular, with transfers where the fees are undeclared, player loans etc. there always seemed to be a lot of horsetrading between them over the years Theses three clubs have a shared close history and are also troubled with paedophilia, Celtic FC, Southampton and Norwich what are the chances?

An in-depth review of their business together would be eye-opening.

That’s an absolute disgrace. Who are they to determine what sort of justice these guys get? You can’t just buy people’s silence.
How did Swinney ever get involved in politics , he's a useless buffoon , he wants waivers to be signed to protect a club that covered up child abuse for over 60 years ? What planet is he on ? It is CFC who should be paying any damages before it gets bulldozed and they should be history .

They were contacted recently and the reply was they no longer represent Celtic. The statement said they haven’t done so since May of this year. That was basically it.

Likewise the only comment I've seen is that Mark Hollinsheads illness with covid19 was part of the reason... strange for the CEO to take such a 'hands on' approach with a client...

Unless of course the end of any involvement is also a smoke screen..as Mark has said himself..." “Hollicom’s network of influencers and contacts, across all media channels, is unrivalled in the public relations industry and that experience and knowledge will make a key difference for clients both existing and new. "

The most pitiful thing is that in the twenty first century, those in authority are behaving like morons, refusing to address the criminal abuse of minors,ignoring correspondence from victims and families who have been wronged . The corrupt cover up continues at the cesspit and Holyrood. Internal investigations,SFA reports, all stalling tactics . Is there anyone of credibility associated with Celtic FC prepared to comment on the wellbeing of youths in their care during the last fifty years?

Reading Gordon's Post just fills me with rage. So the ScotGov want to pay victims to protect the abusers from court! Am I reading this right or am I going f@*#+! Crazy.
So let's say if one of the abusers was taken to court by another person would the person that signed the waivers evidence be void should it be required?
And once the waiver has been signed and the compensation paid is the abuser dealt with in anyway? Or just free to abuse again? Basically it's like saying guys go out and nonce care free we'll pick up the tab.

Well done Gordon for stating your intentions your a brave man.

We have a cesspool of enablers in our government (and within our 'Scottish parliament') and also our media whose stance seems to be an incredulous "why won't they just shut up". The cover up mentality, and 'keeping secrets within the family/religious community' is so ingrained that any exposure and truth coming out is seen as not only an attack on the disgusting child abuser but also somehow an attack on the entire basis of their society and their culture. Forget teams, forget politics, forget religion, bring it ALL out now, lets have that truly independent and no doors barred enquiry that this deserves. We don't have victims here we have fucking heroes.

The worst part is that they have the audacity of proposing to buy out survivors silence with innocent taxpayers monies, what a bunch of crooks and cronies. That is a total insult and gross misuse of the public purse I find that extremely offensive the guilty should pay not the innocents.
They also don't get it that these victims and survivors and their relatives perhaps wouldn't want their silence monies but want real justice and genuine and sincere apologies and a recognition of the atrocities and humiliation they have had to endure, but the people who offer this buy out could never comprehend that.

Is there any previous for a government to pay out compensation and ask for NDAs' on behalf of a sporting organisation and member club?

Although my question is rhetorical, I asked anyway as it is just astounding, and taxpayers shouldn't be paying for the crimes of a private organisation, especially a football club who are at the centre of the world's biggest sporting scandal, and like to tell everyone they are "cash rich" with millions in the bank.

100% correct Nemessis something doesn’t smell right here. Krankies answer to Ruth Davidson was along the lines of “let me be clear to the people of Scotland, we’ve always said, and let me be clear on this that we understand the concerns and let me be clear we will continue to work with all agencies on this to insure the people of Scotland get the answers they and let me emphasise this rightly deserve” what a load of shite, Davidson should have been straight back up saying, you never answered the question FM you just batted it away with a stream of buzz phrases and filler words.
If this wasn’t so serious the SNPs handling of this would be laughable. BN is right this needs to be taken out of the Scottish establishments hands and looked at by a fresh set of objective unbiased eyes with no vested interests (although that’s not easy with the cult like no other).
Is that dobber in charge of the SFA report even back at his work yet? You couldn’t make this stuff up, is no one from the SFA chasing this up on a weekly basis checking on its progress, does the report’s panel have an unlimited timescale and open ended funding? The SFAs report is the main obstacle the SNP are hiding behind to avoid any embarrassing questions, get it f&cking done and published and shown up as the pathetic white wash we all fully expect it to be so the real litigation can start.

Well said, you articulated my sentiments and thoughts on this matter exactly.

I think Hollicom have realised that it is impossible to put out a forest fire by having a piss on it.
