THE mother of slain gangster Kevin “Gerbil” Carroll yesterday broke her silence to condemn the trial of the man accused of killing him.

05:06 |

Elizabeth Carroll, 49, said the court case that ended with the acquittal of Ross Monaghan was a joke and her murdered son had been put on trial after the jury was repeatedly told of his underworld reputation. She said: “Because he was a criminal doesn’t mean he deserves what he got and doesn’t mean people can trash him and make up lies and blame him for everything. “Some people seem to think what happened to him was a joke, something to laugh about. It’s disgusting.” Daniel gang enforcer Carroll, 29, was shot dead outside the Asda store in Robroyston, Glasgow, two years ago after a long-running feud with the Lyons crime clan. Lyons associate Monaghan, 30, walked free due to lack of evidence after the case collapsed amid severe criticism of Crown Office prosecutors and Strathclyde Police. The court heard evidence from police officers saying Carroll was a violent loose cannon and many people wanted him dead. Monaghan’s defence lawyers read out a police list of 99 people who may have been responsible for killing her son. The list was supplied to murder detectives from police intelligence – and did not include Monaghan. But Mrs Carroll, from Milton, Glasgow, said: “That list was a load of rubbish. My niece was there and the people who were on it were people Kevin knew and was friends with. “They’re trying to make out the 99 people were people who wanted to kill him but that wasn’t true. “The obvious question was why the person accused of it was not on that list.” She also questioned why prosecutor Iain McSporran did not call Carroll’s partner and mother of his two children Kelly Green, 31, whose dad is crime boss Jamie Daniel, as a witness. She said: “There was nobody to speak for Kevin. They never brought anybody in to speak for Kevin. They only wanted people with bad things to say about him.” Mrs Carroll is also upset that Monaghan’s lawyer Derek Ogg QC called Carroll “The Gerbil” as he cross-examined some witnesses at the High Court in Glasgow. After the trial, Ogg was also quoted describing the 13 shots fired in the busy Asda carpark as a “slick, cool hit”.
