A GLASGOW MSP has published a scathing letter written to Celtic's chief executive Peter Lawwell. 

The SNP's James Dornan posted correspondence sent to the club boss, in which he accuses him of bringing "shame" upon the club, and said Celtic showed no sings of being a "caring club". 

The letter itself was sent to Mr Lawwell on May 16, following the jailing of former kitman Jim McCafferty, 73, for sexually abusing young players at the Celtic Boys Club.

McCafferty became the fourth individual to be convicted of sexual abuse against boys at the club when he was jailed for six years.

Writing on May 16, Mr Dornan said he would publish the letter in full if he did not receive an acknowledgement. 

As a result, he decided to reveal his thoughts to the Celtic chief on social media. 

Posting the letter on Twitter, he wrote: "On the 16th May I wrote to Peter Lawwell at Celtic FC on the issue of Child Abuse at Celtic Boys Club, all I asked for at this stage was an acknowledgement of my letter within a week, to date I have received no reply. Therefore, as promised on the letter, I am posting it today."

Last week, Celtic released a statement expressing regret for the actions of the paedophile. 

However, the club did not offer an apology to victims and survivors. 

The letter from Mr Dornan in full:

"It is with great sadness I feel compelled to have to write this letter. I have been a Celtic supporter for 60 years, as was my dad before me and his dad before him. I remember being brought up to believe that Celtic stood for something more than just football, created to feed the poor, the club of the dispossessed and the club with a heart. 

"Well, I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering whatever happened to that Celtic FC as we see no sign of a caring club in the way the aftermath of the scandal of the, apparently endemic, sexual abuse over the last four decades at Celtic Boys Club has been handled. 

"I hear the constant refrain that Celtic FC and Celtic Boy Club have always been separate entities, and that description may legally be correct, but as a father of a boy that played for both of these institutions, it is in no way accurate in describing the actual relationship between the two. 

"Boys were sold the idea of playing for the Boys Club as having a foot into Celtic FC, this from Celtic scouts. The relationship between the coaches, including Messrs Torbett and Cairney and high-ranking Celtic officials, was clear for all to see. Every Celtic Boys Club annual event was full of Celtic players and officials, generally giving out prizes to the lucky young players who saw themselves as close to signing or had already signed for the club. 

"I accept that there may be some legal distance between the two but given what I and many others have seen Celtic have without doubt a moral responsibility to compensate for what happened under their watching eye. 

"I urge you to take on this responsibility, not blame, apologise for what happened to these deeply damaged young men, accept that you can't undo what has been done and offer compensation for those who were treated in such a terrible way by people using, and abusing, the proud name of Celtic FC. 

"After seeing the latest in a far too long line of Celtic Boys Club coaches being found guilty of the foulest abuses you continue to abrogate your responsibilities as you have to date on this isssue then, in my view, you bring nothing but shame to the reputation of Celtic and the wider Celtic family.
