As a few of you know I’ve only came onto ff in April of this year so this already may have been said or is ongoing but I can’t find it. The government website (Westminster not holyrood) “Petitions”. I think I’m right in saying that if it gets 100,000 signatures then it has to go up for debate in Westminster.
As we’re one of the biggest institutions in football I think we could hit that target quite easily. I also think other clubs fans down south would sign up to it also as they are learning what that poison in the east end of our city stand for. Apologies if this has already been done but if not then it’s another angle to approach this disgusting issue. And it also takes it out of the hands of the dummies in holyrood.

Jackie Brock, eh? Let's hope that her choice of scarf is not football-related...

How many of these 'neutrals' have their wages paid directly or indirectly by the Scottish Government?

Are the Scottish Government not themselves caught up in a sexual abuse scandal?

Theyre doing what the Catholic does. Do internal inquiries and make it look like theyre handling it.
Theyre should be a inquiery from the poloce and government.
I personally think it should be handled by Westminster and not the clowns in holyrood who rely on the catholic vote and put that before the disgusting going on’s over the past 40+ years at that filthy club.

Can someone please show me where it states this board/panel will be looking into Historic Child Abuse? Maybe I missed it, but very much doubt it.

It doesn’t. Damage limitation I reckon. I said this on an earlier post mate.
I know. I think its crazy how people jump to conclusions. At no stage does it say anything in the slightest. It might it might not, who knows? I see from the start of this tread already the usual speculation and anger had begun. Some asking is she a catholic, wheres her family from, someone must know her. Unreal

I did actually read it myself by the way lol
Exactly and no Catholic should be allowed on these boards given that 99 9 per cent catholics support the scum and not to mention their churches avoidance concerning child abuse.

Still find myself torn between being absolutely convinced this can't be covered up any longer and being convinced that the cover up of the cover up of the cover up is already in action.

Since the very first criminal inquiries this sort of placeman tactic has been the go to option, it is revolting.

Because this isn't the investigation. It's nothing to do with any sort of investigation or review of what happened at their boys club. People are just diving in here and making an arse of themselves without reading it.
It’s to do with the SFA covering their backs and saying they’ve appointed all these great people who will ensure nothing like this can ever happen again and aren’t we such a wonderful organisation for doing this......

Not wanting to argue, but I was responding to your post which used the word "investigation", neither of our posts said it was an investigation.
I am not sure that this panel can "ensure a widespread approach to reinforcing child wellbeing and protection across the national game." without considering the events that took place there over several decades.
I do suspect that Celtc may consider this advisory panel review, will be all that they intend to take place, as regards child protection and abuse in Scottish football.
Make no mistake Celtc intend to come out of this without admitting to any fault.
7 guilty verdicts against them, and still they deny any wrongdoing.

I’m not interested in that but let’s look at the facts. You can’t blame people for asking these questions. To set up this today with representatives from the SFA is completely wrong imo. It has to be an independent body. It would be in any other country. But with SFA involvement says to me that maybe they know an inquiry is on its way and they are trying to make themselves look as if they are doing something. Remember Lawell sits on this board. Like you stated they haven’t mentioned anything about the past crimes. But you can’t blame people for thinking there is a problem here. Do you agree with me that if the snp weren’t in government then the inquiry would have already started? Our wee country is corrupt with this government. You also mentioned in a previous thread that you were against the Royal family. I’m not having a go at you Cambridge but I think you may have to come home a bit more often to actually realise what is going on. Anywhere else in the world where the catholic cult has been proved for child abuse they have been brought before the courts. Why not here? I know the answer. Votes before people. And because we have the problem of Irish republicanism in the West of Scotland then they will always vote for anything that is against the union. The snp rely on that. There are a lot of people that know their stuff on ff. Don’t call them unreal pal.

Well said and very eloquently put.
 
Who's kidding who here?
I've lost all trust in this city of ours with the cover ups and these selections are a joke IMO.
Get non-celtc, catholic NEUTRALS to get this sorted. No more cover ups. No more sweep sweep. If the outcome is the same as Penn State's punishment, SO BE IT.

Fùcking sick of the halfarsed pish attempts at placating the masses who want the paedos weeded out.

Just get independent people in, get the paedos outed and any club who protected and covered them up fùcking disbanded.

So sick of this. In what other industry, walk of life or country would such protection be afforded to a publicly convicted paedo ring within a member organisation?

Absolutely mental that we are still watching these imbeciles tiptoeing around it ffs. Move all these coaches next door to the footballing authorities and Scottish politicians... see if it’s still ok to sweep into the background for decades.

Total farce and enough is enough.

The Interim Report of the Independent Review of Sexual Abuse in Scottish Football can be read here.

https://www.scottishfa.co.uk/media/4028/independent-review-of-sexual-abuse-in-scottish-football_interim-report.pdf
Just scanned through it and, as might be expected, it's all very generalised. There is absolutely nothing that would hold Celtic FC or the SFA to account.

One recommendation, though, suggests that sponsors contribute to a fund that would offer 'support and assistance' to those who have experienced abuse in Scottish football.

This should surely be the responsibility of the club or organisation in question.

RECOMMENDATION 94
The Independent Review recommends that the Scottish FA and clubs and organisations in Scottish football consider the establishment of a permanent testimonial to the experiences of and impact on those affected including consideration of the creation of a fund which might underwrite support and assistance for those who have been personally affected by sexual abuse in Scottish football and indeed those in Scottish football who are experiencing other mental health challenges and issues. The Review sees no reason why this might not also be contributed to or underwritten by commercial donation and sponsorship.

Absolutely.

The central issue is that although those responsible for carrying out crimes have been dealt with by the courts, those who effectively assisted them by turning a blind eye will get away with it unless the Scottish government authorises an inquiry.
