Celtic fan on fake euro rap
Published: 12 Nov 2009

A CELTIC fan is facing months in jail after he was caged in Germany for allegedly carrying fake euros.
Charles Wright, 25, of Dalmuir, Dunbartonshire, was arrested in a Hamburg pub last Wednesday - hours before the Hoops played the local team.

He had travelled with pals to watch the game but was nabbed in a police swoop after a barmaid claimed he passed her dodgy banknotes.

It is claimed officers found counterfeit currency stashed in his hood. His distraught family have not heard from Charles since, because he is barred from making calls. And the mobile phone repairer is unable to tell German authorities what happened - because he was too DRUNK to remember.

Frantic mum Pauline said: "He's never been in trouble before. I'm 100 per cent certain he's innocent. He didn't do anything wrong."

British Consular staff only made contact with Charles a week after his arrest but Pauline added: "They say he's OK."

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are providing Consular assistance."
