Usman Ali, 34, Gul Riaz, 43, Banaras Hussain, 39, Abdul Majid, 36, and two others who could not be named for legal purposes were jailed for a combined 55-and-a-half years on Wednesday.They were found guilty of a total of nine counts of rape and two counts of indecent assault of two girls in the Huddersfield area between 1995 and 2011.

An official report on historical child sex abuse in football will contain evidence of a cross-border paedophile ring.

The independent review - commissioned by the SFA - will say that some victims were trafficked between abusers Jim McCafferty who was a coach in Scotland and Barry Bennell a serial abuser based in England, including Malcolm Rodger, now 49.

McCafferty, 74, a former Celtic Boys’ Club coach and Celtic FC kitman, admitted his crimes after being confronted by the Daily Record and was jailed.

Scots cops fail to attend LGBT hate crime course despite it being 'priority'

  Scots cops fail to attend LGBT hate crime course despite it being 'priority' Scottish Greens MSP urges Police Scotland to ensure key officers attend the training as a matter of urgency. ” This month, one of Scotland’s best-known gay bars was targeted by yobs who scrawled homophobic abuse on the front doors. Images on social media showed how vandals had painted “p***s out” on the entrance to The Polo Lounge in Glasgow. When Police Scotland announced its partnership with the Equality Network, it said officers would use the training to advise colleagues.

Mr Rodger, who has waived his right to anonimity, said he was abused over two years in the 1980s in Scotland, England and Spain.

He took part in an interview with Channel Four news and was visibly upset as he recounted what happened to him.

The former British Army serviceman, he says he was abused at the same time by McCafferty and another man, Bill Kelly, who was a coach with the now defunct West Lothian team, Uphall Saints.

McCafferty was coach of neighbouring Fauldhouse United at the time.

Mr Rodger says Kelly, now 84, took him to the north of England where Bennell abused him causing him to be physically sick.

He told Channel 4 News:”The following day Bill Kelly told me, if anybody was to ask anything, just to say that I’d eaten something that hadn’t agreed with me at dinner.”

Sky Sports escape Ofcom sanction following mistranslated interview with Rangers' Alfredo Morelos... which led to a complaint from Celtic after sub-titles wrongly accused club's fans of racial abuse during December clash

  Sky Sports escape Ofcom sanction following mistranslated interview with Rangers' Alfredo Morelos... which led to a complaint from Celtic after sub-titles wrongly accused club's fans of racial abuse during December clash Sky Sports have escaped punishment from broadcast regulator Ofcom over a Celtic complaint regarding a mistranslated interview with Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos. The Parkhead club demanded answers from the broadcaster after sub-titles attached to a Sky interview with the Colombian, who spoke in Spanish, wrongly accused Celtic supporters of racial abuse during the meeting of the two clubs on December 29.Sky reporters were excluded from Celtic press conferences for a time, while Ofcom considered whether to launch a formal complaint.

Kelly served one year in prison after being convicted of abusing 12 boys in 1987 - including Mr Rodger.

But when confronted during Wednesday's Channel Four report, Kelly denied abusing Mr Rodger.

Martin Henry, chairman of the SFA independent review panel, told the programme that new evidence has emerged which suggests that some notorious predators worked together to abuse young players.

He said:”We do have substantive information to suggest that has been the case

“We have had recent accounts that suggests that was very much the case.”

On Monday the Record revealed allegations of sexual abuse against a sixth Celtic Boys’ Club official.

Three of the CBC paedophiles - McCafferty, Frank Cairney, 84, and Jim Torbett, 72 , have already been jailed.

A fourth, Gerald King, 66, was convicted of sexually abusing school children, but avoided jail.

British politicians covered up child sex abuse for decades, inquiry finds

  British politicians covered up child sex abuse for decades, inquiry finds British politicians covered up child sex abuse for decades, inquiry findsLONDON (Reuters) - British politicians turned a blind eye to the sexual abuse of children and actively covered up allegations over decades, an independent inquiry into historical sex offences in Westminster found on Tuesday.

The Record has identified two more alleged Celtic Boys’ Club abusers whom we cannot name.

McCafferty admitted his years of abuse when we confronted him in 2016.

He was convicted of offences in Northern Ireland, carried out when he was aged 66 to 68.

At the High Court in Edinburgh in May last year, he admitted 12 charges related to child sex abuse against 10 teenage boys between 1972 and 1996.

He was sentenced to six years and nine months in prison to add to the three years and nine months jail term he was given in Northern Ireland.

In September the Record revealed that twisted McCafferty was sacked by Celtic after being confronted by an angry parent in 1996 and reported to police and the SFA.

And we told how he was able to simply flee to Ireland for a time and then slip back into Scotland to resume his career in football.

In a statement Celtic FC 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. Unfortunately it has affected many areas of society.

“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."
