    A cleaner sacked by Celtic has denied leaking the club’s apparent transfer plans.

    Shocked gran Maureen Quinn, whose security guard son was suspended, says they are being made scapegoats.

    Celtic took action during the hunt for the mole who leaked what are alleged to have been documents outlining transfer plans for the summer.

    Maureen, 57, was hauled in for a meeting at Parkhead yesterday and told she was being dismissed with immediate effect.

    Hours earlier, her son Edward Quinn, 30, was suspended from his security job at the club’s Lennoxtown training centre.


    The devoted Hoops fan denies any wrongdoing and faces a meeting next week to learn his fate.

    Last night, gran Maureen hit out at club bosses and insisted she and her son had been made “scapegoats”. She denies any involvement and plans to slap her former employer with an unfair dismissal case.


    Celtic took action against the Quinns following a hunt to find who leaked the transfer dossier on social media.

    The mother and son told the Record how they and other staff members were taken in for a grilling by the head of security and a club lawyer.



    They said CCTV footage at Lennoxtown had been examined in a bid to identify the culprit.

    Leaked earlier this month, the document appeared to come from a high-level meeting in April and seemingly pinpointed players Celtic wanted to keep and others they would be willing to offload.


    Maureen, who lives in Glasgow’s Drumchapel with taxi driver husband Eddie said: “It’s a disgrace.

    “I’ve done nothing wrong and I’m getting blamed for whatever this is. I know my son would do nothing wrong either. We’re just scapegoats. I want to clear my name.”



    She added: “They pulled me in three times for meetings about this.

    “In my job at Lennoxtown, I empty bins and take them to the bin room on a trolley. I think they believe I’ve went through the bins and found this paper, gave it to my son and he’s photographed it.


    “I support Celtic because my son and husband do but I couldn’t name half their players. I couldn’t care less what’s on a bit of paper.”


    Mum of two Maureen has worked at Lennoxtown since September 2017. Of her sacking, she added: “I was in tears. I’m gutted and sick for Edward, too.”


    Edward has been employed by Celtic since 2008, stewarding games then moving on to security work at Lennoxtown

    He said: “About 30 people work at the training centre. Celtic had a club lawyer and head of security question everyone in the building on their own. They got me and my mum back in for second interviews.

    They showed me a photo of a hand holding a piece of paper. My boss said, ‘I think they look like your nails’. I showed them my nails, which aren’t as short as those in the photo.


    They also referred to me going into the football admin office on the morning of the Scottish Cup Final on May 25. I was on shift and have texts to show I was asking people if they had a phone charger. I went in that office looking for one.


    Edward, from Barrhead, near Glasgow, lives with his partner Donna, 32, who is expecting their first child together in six weeks.

    Edward added: “It sounds like I’m getting the sack. I love my team and my job. People say I have a dream job and it’s true. I’d never jeopardise that. I’ve got a baby coming and this is the last thing I need.”

    A Celtic spokesman said: “This is an internal matter. We are satisfied that the club has acted appropriately.”

    I mean the ‘editorial angle’ that it’s pitched at..

    “Big Bad Cellik pick on gran and son awaiting first child.”

    Off to sell your shoddy story to a rag rather than take Union or legal action over unfair dismissal if that’s what you believe.

    What an absolute farce this is.

    Even if these people are guilty, the whole episode is just further evidence of the lack of professionalism behind the scenes at the club.

    These people should have no access to any material in any circumstance.

    Material that is being discarded should be thoroughly shredded before being disposed, and any confidential documents should not be lying around on office desks or in unlocked drawers or cabinets where anyone can access them.

    You’d think this would be standard practice at professional football club with a turnover of 100m.

    Exactly! Celtic better have more than was said here or there's a payout in the offing. You can't just blame someone because they empty the bins! There has to be more to this than meets the eye.

    Not Celtic chat mate but juries in criminal trials have convicted folk by just looking at their hands.

    No way Celtic could prove that the cleaner knew her son would take a picture of it even if she did give him it, hope she wins her case if she brings one.

    If you're going to suspend the cleaner then you better suspend the * who left it out for all to read as well.
