Celtic FC’s former physio reaches deal with club

Celtic
Football Club and Brian Scott, the club’s former physiotherapist, yesterday
brought their legal battle to a close by reaching a deal that satisfied both
parties.

The
surprise move followed evidence given yesterday morning by Scott, when he
admitted breaching strict confidentiality rules. He was claiming unfair
dismissal and breach of contract after being sacked on 18 August 2003.

Rod
McKenzie, Celtic’s solicitor, said discussions on the fourth day of the hearing
had resulted in both parties reaching a deal.

"The
action by Mr Scott will be dismissed following an agreement by both parties,”
he said. “The tribunal will be continued for six weeks to allow the agreement
to be documented. Following that, an announcement will be made by the tribunal."

Scott
admitted under cross-examination from McKenzie that he had breached strict
confidentiality agreements by revealing the details of players’ injuries to a
company that had offered him a lucrative financial deal.
