Victims lawyer urges Celtic to set millions aside

Forget about the SNP.
They are infested with rabids from top to bottom and will do everything they can to protect their favourite football club.

The floodgates are now open.
Let's see how many members from the opposition parties rush through them and ask the government to demand celtic do the right thing and compensate the poor victims.
Politically nothing will happen within Scotland.

Have the tories commented on this at all? We can only hope it comes from westminster but they are all over the place. I think there will be pay offs to prevent trials. Once you start offering the victims 100k for example they will more often than not accept.

If this was in the US they would be destroyed.

Surely the argument is if CELTIC FC gave NDA, then it blows the separate entity out the water... and its not much about its contents but who issued it.
Perhaps. I think they will keep peddling the seperate entity line until they lose a case and then quickly run to the other victims with money if they sign NDA’s

Lawyers have nda’s signed by officials from the filth,from two different abusers on different survivors from 80’s and 90’s I been told.

Also a video of CBC playing a Celtic select at Neverland with mr Dougie Donnelly doing the obligatory commentary with families in their stands watching the games.

Separate entity still fuckers !!!

The press and Lawyers have the Bennell connection now.

Shut down the paedo paradise ffs !!

Disgraceful and the sitting Govt should be ashamed and dissolved!
An event arranged to abuse children with a little bit of football in their spare time.

What good are nda’s Though . Isn’t the point of them that they can’t be used in court and the people that sign them can’t testify on the information included?
If they are signed by Celtic directorate as rumours suggest then they are explosive for the lawyers seeking to prove the separate entity nonsense is just that.

They don’t necessarily have to be from the people seeking recompense.

That BBC article confirms he abused whilst at Celtic, the big club.


They must be hounded now
What also might be highlighted here is that this story broke in 1994.

Not in a quarter of a century has anyone at Celtic at made any attempt to apologise for this despite the clear links to them officially.

A number of their employees knew all about it and did nothing.

This could have been tied up years before now but there was no appetite and it took the death of Andrew Gray and the bravery of Kenny Campbell to even make a ripple about it.

Celtic's actions have been disgusting in all of this.

Another issue here is the subject matter. People don’t want to talk about child abuse . It’s heinous and understandable to a extent. It’s similar to mental health although that’s getting better but simply people who don’t have a interest in the case

Yup, far easier for people to turn away and feel horrified but not want to speak of a taboo subject.

Their mindset on these crimes is both breathtaking and chilling at the same time.

Here are a couple of comments from further down the Mark Daley tweet ...

'Celtic, Rangers, hibs, boys homes, scouts, beavers, boys brigade, the bbc, the tory party, the churches, I’m sure there is more. Only rangers will escape justice as they are no longer the same club and the culprits at ibrox not named until afterward their deaths. Dunn,WallaceETC'

'Harry Dunn dead
Jock Wallace dead
Gordon Neely dead
Rangers FC dead
Can’t prosecute the dead, but you can deflect from the in house beastialty all you like, but your only escaping justice through death, it happened if you like it or not, beast.'


'I'm glad, he should have got 32years or more and the Rangers fans who abuse the kids again to score points should get 20 years. These people are capable of child abuse if they can use and abuse the poor kids all over again.'

No words can do justice to this Celtic-obsessed obscenity.
If there are any valid claims against us, I’d like to see us do the right thing and pay compensation. This would set a precedent for others in Scottish football with far, far bigger problems. They could either disgrace themselves further by fighting claims, or pay out compensation to all their victims.

Alan Brazil said that what happened to him prevented him having a career with Celtic.
Torbett was dismissed by Stein.

I think any separate entity chat is nothing but bluster.

and never forget that Stein was happy to pose for pics with a beast once he was brought back into the fold
despite the initial yahoos response being that Stein was a stand-up guy for physically kicking Torbett out of Parkhead

his statue should be torn down

Haven't heard a peep from any of them.
Of course the party line would be no comment while trials are still ongoing.

The way is clear now and a paedophile ring has been exposed.
Let's see how many of them demand justice for the poor victims.
I'll go for none.

If (and it's a big If) Celtic eventually do pay compensation to victims of sexual abuse at the Celtic Boys Club you can rest assured that compensation awards will be agreed at the 'court room door'. There will be no hearing of evidence in a court of law with the legal stipulation that Celtic accept no responsibility for what happened, and they will insist upon no further disclosure by those receiving compensation.

It is not beyond the realms of legal possibility that their Lawyers (who will be the best in that legal area) will still maintain that they were a separate entity to the Celtic Boys Club.

This is usually the manner in which compensation cases are agreed.

I think folk are getting way ahead of themselves here, I would be astonished if there are any repercussions for Celtic, they are protected, that much is painfully obvious.
We all know they are protected here , but not in a national sense . Also through the courts .

This is the last time Celtic or their advisors will see the internal side of a court room. The abused have been let down by a complicit government and by a football club the looked to in awe.

Sickening to think that as well as the kids abused at Celtic, some of these bheasts also had access to vulnerable kids too through their charities.

Doesn't bear thinking how many of those vulnerable kids will never have their voices heard and will never see justice.

But it won’t significantly. Infact if they were to make the champions league it prob wouldn’t even effect thrrr budgets
That's where UEFA should step in and tell the to f*ck off, they're not having their disgusting club in Europe's premier tournament.

Seriously why has no one ever connected the dots?

Celtic BC, Celtic FC, the trophy centre, the Fairbairn (is that the right name?) charity, the links with Barry Bennell, Saville etc.

There has to be a real push to make sure this doesn't happen. All victims groups, children's groups, women's groups, all right minded politicians (Scottish/British/European), all respectable media outlets, all footballing authorities should be contacted so they are aware of the extreme feelings of public anger. Victims should be supported and more encouraged to come forward.

Think if this was Rangers. We'd be getting absolutely hammered from all angles - sponsors would have been gotten at and deserted us - our stadium would have been vandalised with vile graffiti - former players and staff would have been hounded for comment and accused of being part of the cover up. We'd probably already have been suspended from the league.

Details of abuse would have freely discussed in public as it would be considered "a matter of public interest" - where have I heard that used before in 2012. We'd already have been tried and convicted in the media.

The lack of discussion & action regarding sexual abuse cases of minors is a disgrace in Scotland - there is absolutely no appetite to fight it - and I'm not just singling out celtic and the catholic church here - it goes for all scum bastards who abuse kids. Politicians in Scotland should be held accountable too for their turning a blind eye to this - they are blatantly part of the cover up.

Great post mate , as I’ve said before if this was us we would no longer be operating as a club .

There's also the question of whether Celtic have any insurance which would cover them against legal claims.
Don’t think insurance companies cover you for criminal negligence (if nothing more sinister) like getting a speeding ticket and trying to get your insurance to pay it
