Since issuing our statement earlier this evening, some media reports have wrongly implied that the Partick Thistle board and management has known about an allegation of sexual abuse since 1992 and has covered it up.
The current board and management knew nothing of this until an internal investigation uncovered it in the last few days. As a result, the club informed the SFA and Police Scotland.
The club is being transparent and open about how it is dealing with this historical allegation and will continue to co-operate fully with the relevant authorities.
