We call on the SFA to strip titles won by Celtic FC during the child abuse years

At least 5 former employees of Celtic Football Club, and their nursery club, Celtic Boys Club have been charged with child abuse dating from the 1960s to the 1990s.

At the trial of the convicted monster Jim Torbett, testimony told that Jock Stein (Celtic manager at the time) and the Celtic board of directors were aware of the abuse, but decided not to inform the authorities to keep the club's name 'clean'!

As late as summer 1991, the Celtic board, and manager Liam Brady, called in lawyers to make one of the victims of another beast, Frank Cairney (a very close friend of Tommy Burns), sign a letter swearing the family to secrecy over the abuse of their child. Whether money was involved is up to you to decide.

Kevin Kelly and Jack McGinn  (directors of Celtic during this period of abuse) where close friends of the convicted Torbett. Kelly was a director of Torbetts firm, The Trophy Centre, and Mcginn was an employee.  They got him back to Celtic once the dust had settled and allowed him to continue his abuse!

All titles won by Celtic during the years of 1968 and 1994 should be wiped from the history books and the staff who are still alive should be prosecuted for their heinous crimes.
