Rangers Probe Into Green-Whyte Business Links In 'New Evidence' Delay

An investigation into alleged business links between Scottish Third Division Rangers ex-CEO Charles Green and ex-Owner Craig Whyte "faces being delayed after it has emerged that new evidence could be presented to the probe," according to the SCOTSMAN. Claims that Whyte has legal rights over Rangers assets following Green’s takeover last summer "were due to be settled by the report in the next 48 hours." Whyte maintains that Green "was only a front for the takeover." Amid reports that the investigation, compiled by Pinsent Masons, was likely to clear Green of any wrongdoing, Worthingon Group plc -- the company acting on behalf of Whyte -- "wrote to the law firm on May 16 pledging to produce prima facie evidence of links between Green and Whyte" (SCOTSMAN, 5/28).
