Craig Whyte: Claims he was working with Charles Green on the purchase of Rangers

Allegations from former Rangers owner Craig Whyte have emerged in the past week regarding his involvement with Green.

Whyte has claimed that he was behind the Sevco 5088 company set up to transfer assets from Rangers "oldco" last year and that Green and associates were initially working for him when they completed their purchase of assets.

Police conducted serches of premises, believed to include Ibrox and Murray Park on Wednesday.

"Police Scotland today carried out a number of searches under warrant in Scotland and England in relation to the on-going investigation regarding the acquisition of Rangers Football Club in 2011," a police statement read.

"These searches relate to both domestic and business premises. This remains an on-going investigation and no further information can be provided at this stage."

The SFA handed Whyte a lifetime ban from involvement in Scottish football, in addition to a substantial fine in April 2012.

SFA chief executive Stewart Regan said: "We have to seek the facts and that's what we've done.

"We've written to Mr Green, as chief executive of the club, and asked him to respond to a number of very specific points about the revelations last weekend.

"And once we've got those answers, we'll be able to decide how we deal with it."

PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
