I went on kerrydale street there to see what they were saying about this, but I can’t see anything. Am I just missing the thread or are they seriously not keeping tabs on it?

Bizarrely, where liability insurances are concerned, my understanding is that the company would need to have liability insurance in force at the time of the claim being submitted (not on the date the alleged claims events took place) and that that policy would need to cover the event upon which the claim is being raised.

So, if Separate Entity FC have an existing liability insurance in place now, it would need to be in force at the time of the claim being submitted against them. In addition, the policy would need to include liabilities arising from sexual assault of minors by club officials or employees, and the known possibility of any likely claims being submitted would need to have been disclosed at the time of the renewal of the policy.

Given that everyone and their dog is now aware that that lot have potential claims piling up against them, not to mention how unlikely it would be for an underwriter to even offer paedo cover, I think it most unlikely that they have insurance for this type of event at this moment of time.
Sexual abuse exclusion clauses are generally a modern inclusion on commercial/corporate insurance policies. These are now included as standard on a number of sports clubs policies due to the fact claims have occurred in these types of organisation.

The policy basis would dictate if the cover was claims occurring (the policy in cover at the time of the incident) or claims made (the cover at the time the claim was submitted).

I'd be surprised if the liability insurances were on a claims made basis, generally this is for professional indemnity policies.

Either way I'd suggest the insurer can avoid the claim due to the fact they are only vicariously liable when the employee is carrying out a task in line with their employment.

If you look at the Harvey Weinstein case, his insurer, Chubb, have refused to pay defence costs for his acts of sexual misconduct.

The Daily Record is surprisingly quiet in all of this...

I expect this to be tomorrows front page news across the board.
I was told months ago that they’re sitting with something that would blow this open. It was looking like they were stalling and making excuses for not printing. We’ll see soon enough now.

Simply following there clubs instructions that it has nothing to do with them many of them take what there club say like it’s the bible or something and don’t believe they could be wrong

is the cap not for criminal compensation that would be paid by the goverment

if the victims sued celtic directly them surely thee would be no cap
Would imagine this is the case. If celtic were tried in criminal courts, in the UK the focus is on punishment and not to compensate the victims.

However, if celtic were tried in the civil courts, the focus is on compensation for the victims.

David Goodwillie, for example. Was charged but not tried in criminal courts for rape. Victim took him to civil court and was awarded 100k.

This is the worrying thing. Not just Celtic fans but other Scottish football fans in general just don’t seem bothered about the paedophile ring operating out of one of the biggest sporting institutions in the country. Acqaintances I have on Twitter (sheep, Hearts fans etc) not a mention from any of them. Parents themselves for the most part. A sad reflection of modern Scotland.

Absolute head in the sand material.

A good few as we know are total mentalists. Some of them don’t condone this type of thing but hope it will simply go away to protect their club, and another few, the minority, are utterly disgusted and want the truth to come out.

It's what they have done for decades now. Try and ignore it and hope it will go away while getting more upset at anyone who mentions it than the actual abuse and the cover up itself.

It's why I have no sympathy for them. They deserve the stigma.

I don’t see the record publishing anything incriminating against that mob, if they had a letter it will be long gone.

I was in the bookies today and the manager was going about them getting Rafa Benetiz and I told him they wouldn't be able to afford him once all the claims went in against his rancid club.
His reply - "I don't want to comment on any of that".
And there you have it.

Almost to a man and woman they couldn't give one single fu.ck about the countless victims abused by employees of that rancid club.

Sickening.

Reading all this its like a series of line of duty. Mental that this could happen.

The links are there the work has been done it just takes a journo with some balls to run with it and start asking people the difficult questions

The stategy across the board of the entire "Celtic family" seems to be one of collectively putting their fingers in their ears and hoping just to ride it out. Twitter - nada. Facebook - nada. Newspapers - nada. Fan forums - nada. And this from the people who brought us the rangerstaxcase blog.

There are two cheeks to the Celtc arse

Cheek 1 as the sporting wing of the provos
Cheek 2 as the obvious football choice of all things kafflik

the unwashed are happy to allow Priests from the worlds largest and most prolific paedophilic organisation to have access to their childrens’ hearts, minds and frequently bodies too - it’s no surprise that they don’t really care what employees of their football Club got up to. Child rape appears to be an acceptable part of their Cult.

The silence from the usually so vocal Spiers, Spence, English etc is deafening.

Absolutely sickening how they can tear us to shreds on such trivial matters yet stay silent on such a gut wrenching subject which has plagued our game and cost people their lives.

Make no mistake, they are complicit in the ongoing cover up.

They've usually got an opinion.
Maybe they just can't think of anything to say at the moment.

Spiers? The very same lady's front bottom who defended that beast at hearts

It absolutely is worrying mate.
I've got friends who are St Mirren fans, Dundee fans etc, and they loved weighing in with the sevco and tax pish, but a paedophile ring? Not fucking interested.
A few years ago, an unpaid bill to a f.uckin face painter was the crime of the century with these pricks......where is the outrage and disgust, now that it is actually merited....?

Threats based on what, though?

The media are reporting a court case and a series of convictions. Celtic's name is included because of the perpetrators' connection to the club.
You've nailed it.
Hollow threats if anything but the bastards do have ways of stifling exposure in this country.

The question needs to be asked of the clubs sponsors if they are happy to have their name associated with a club that seem to condone pedophilia. A few emails to magners or dafabet or any of the other sponsors. When it starts to affect sponsorship deals that will hurt the bheasts
