Hollywood Goodfella: Exclusive: I know who killed gangster Kevin ‘Gerbil’ Carroll, says jailed assassin


GANGLAND assassin Raymond Anderson yesterday denied he was behind the death of Kevin "The Gerbil" Carroll.

And, in a jail interview, Anderson, 47, pointed the finger at the Lyons underworld clan.

He said Carroll - an enforcer for the rival Daniel family - was gunned down in revenge for a bungled hit on a Lyons gang member.

And he rejected claims that Carroll, 29, was killed outside an Asda superstore for informing on him and James McDonald over the 2006 slaying of underworld figure Michael Lyons.

At Shotts jail in Lanarkshire - where he is serving 35 years for Michael Lyons's murder - Anderson said he only learned the Gerbil was dead when he phoned his daughter half an hour after news of the shooting emerged on Tuesday.

Veteran actor Anthony Borgese of "Sopranos" and "Goodfellas" fame pleaded guilty Wednesday to extorting a debtor who was beaten by mob goons.
