Scottish FA To Sue Former Rangers Owner Craig Whyte Over $316K Unpaid Fine
The Scottish FA "is suing" former Rangers Owner Craig Whyte over a £200,000 ($316,000) unpaid fine "for bringing the game into disrepute," after ignoring requests to pay for the last 10 months, according to the SCOTSMAN. Scottish football chiefs "have confirmed that a writ has been served after a string of warnings issued to the tycoon went unheeded for 10 months, and football chiefs will now go through the courts to seek payment." The Motherwell-born businessman has previously refused to pay the fine, branding it "a joke," and saying he would seek legal advice over what he called the SFA’s "defamatory statements." The SFA confirmed that the writ "had been served" to Whyte but refused to comment further (SCOTSMAN, 2/10).
