Detectives in the United States have launched an investigation into an alleged sex attack on a Celtic Boys Club player that former Parkhead bosses are said to have attempted to suppress.
Frank Cairney, a former manager of the boys club and a serial paedophile, was jailed in February for preying on vulnerable young players in his care.
Jack McGinn, the former Celtic FC chairman, has admitted he was told that Cairney had abused a teenager on a tour to New Jersey in summer 1991, 30 years before he was brought to justice.
It prompted Mr McGinn, who became president of the Scottish FA, to convene a meeting at Parkhead where he accepted Cairney’s resignation.
