Craig Whyte & Charles Green arrested over ‘alleged fraudulent purchase’ of Rangers


Former Rangers owner Craig Whyte and chief executive Charles Green have been arrested by Police investigating an alleged fraudulent purchase of the Ibrox club in 2012.

Green was interviewed by police at Livingston Police Station on Tuesday and subsequently arrested by officers. He was followed by Whyte who was driven into Helen Street police station within the shadow of Ibrox, where he was questioned before being arrested by officers also.

Former Rangers administrator David Whitehouse has also been arrested. Whitehouse worked for Duff & Phelps and sold the club’s assets to Green after Rangers’ creditors rejected a CVA leading to liquidation.

All three are expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court in private on Wednesday.
