Rangers order Craig Whyte to stay away from Man United game


Craig Whyte has been ordered to stay away from Ibrox tonight as Rangers take on Manchester United in the Champions League.

According to the Daily Record, the billionaire and Andrew Ellis have been advised by senior club officials via their lawyers, that it would be inappropriate for the pair to be seen inside the stadium. And their plans to fly into Glasgow for the Champions League game, after further discussions with Sir David Murray, have now been scrapped.

Ellis confirmed to the Record, that he would not be attending the European game. And impressed his disappointment at missing out on the game and a meeting with the Rangers directors.

Ellis said, “Craig and I had cleared our diaries and were very excited about the prospect of spending a couple of days in Glasgow. We are very disappointed that we will now not be able to take in the match and meet with the directors. I was obviously very much looking forward to meeting Alastair in particular.”

Chairman Alastair Johnstone has remained in the United States, and with no intention of attending tonight’s massively important game against Manchester United. One thing you cannot fault Murray with, was his attendance at Ibrox. So why is the current Rangers Chairman not showing his face at tonight’s game? Surely it is a slap in the face of those Rangers fans who fork out thousands of pounds to support Rangers home and away, and yet the man who is the head of their club can’t be bothered to come to possibly their biggest game of the season so far.
