Celtic Boys Club manager 'stuffed banknotes in boy's mouth'

Recommended Posts

As the trial of Gerald King, former Chair of Celtic Boys' Club continues in Glasgow Sheriff Court, the Evening Times are now crediting their coverage to a court reporter. Gerald King is described as, 'a Springburn primary school teacher' :


A 43 year old man was a pupil at the school in the 1980s, where Gerald King, 66, taught and coached the school football team. 


He said throughout his last year at primary school, while in the team, King repeatedly exposed his private parts to him while changing.


The witness claimed King also showed him a pornographic magazine, and a few seconds of videos.


He admitted he initially told police, who were investigating King he knew nothing happening at the school but when he got the letter from King's defence team to be a witness, he changed his mind.


He said, "I knew at that point I wasn't going to stand up here and defend someone I knew to be guilty".


King, from Springburn, is on trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court is accused of using lewd and libidinous practices towards five boys and two girls at a school in the north of Glasgow between August 1 1983 and June 30, 1989.


He also faces a charge of taking, or permitting to be taken, indecent images of children on various occasions between January 1987 and December 1988 at Barrowfield football park at the City's London Road.


The court heard that on match or training days, King would change in a separate area of the school from the pupils.


But it was not until King allegedly asked the pupil to take on extra responsibilities, the indecent behaviour began.


King denies the charges and the trial before Sheriff Johanna Johnston QC continues.
