Formal legal action has begun against Celtic Football Club regarding claims it failed to protect victims from sex abusers working around Celtic Boys’ Club.
Celtic declined to answer questions put forward by the Guardian in relation to the legal action but instead referred to a statement made by the club in February, where it said: “Celtic Football Club is appalled by any form of historic abuse and has great sympathy for those who suffered abuse and for their families. “The club is very sorry that these events took place. The abuse of young people is an abhorrent crime.”
The statement also said: “With regard to the allegations regarding historic abuse at Celtic Boys’ Club (which, so far as we have been made aware, relate to the period prior to 1997), although Celtic Football Club is a separate organisation, we take these extremely seriously because of the historic contacts between the two organisations.”
Historic sexual abuse cases often involve abuse over a number of years within a family, at a school, in residential care homes or the church.
We have helped a number of clients who have been victims of historic sexual abuse and have successfully secured thousands of pounds for them.
