Crime boss Daniel Kinahan has been hired as the special adviser to a sports company backed by the Bahrain royal family.

The announcement was made in the same week his gang was publicly named in open Irish court for the first time.

Kinahan (41), who gardaĆ­ say is the leader of the Kinahan organised crime group, has been exiled in the Middle East since the outbreak of the gangland feud in 2016 that has claimed up to 18 lives to date.
