Craig Whyte’s lawyers send Letter Before Action

Channel 4 News has received a copy of the Letter Before Action now sent from lawyers acting for Craig Whyte, to Rangers FC and key shareholders involved with the club.

Of course they insist they are absolutely serious and this matter is heading to court if The Principals don’t get what they want from Rangers, Charles Green and Imran Ahmad (who remain major shareholders though physically departed from Ibrox).

There are 333 pages of evidence. There are company forms; agreements; text messages; emails and tape-recordings supplied as evidence.


The case they plead is essentially that Craig Whyte and his associate Aidan Earley were deprived of their legitimate interest in the Rangers that arose from the ashes of Administration and Liquidation.

Specifically that Craig Whyte is due £137,000 and “an opportunity to redeem his reputation by achieving a turnaround success at Rangers Football Club.”

And this not happening is deemed to have “…hindered his ability to conduct business activities in Scotland and/or elsewhere.”

This is an interesting claim which will raise some eyebrows since it rests upon Craig Whyte being keen to be involved in Scottish football from which he’d been banned by the SFA just prior to his Rescue Plan for Rangers unfolding.

But The Principals – as Craig Whyte and Aidan Earley are referred to – believed that if a new Rangers company was “quoted on a public market” then the SFA ban could be got around.

Initially the whole Rescue Plan relied on Craig Whyte not being a public part of it at all:

“The Principals also decided that it was desirable that Mr Whyte should not be seen as directly involved in any bid. This was because Mr Whyte was unpopular with the Rangers fans…The Principals concluded it would be necessary to find someone to front the transaction for them.”

And that man – they claim – was Charles Green. Mr Green of course vehemently denies it.

The documentation lays out in great detail how this situation and what followed arose. Hotel meetings in London laboriously listed and detailed right down to tape recordings, texts and emails.

And how they were keen to bring in others to pump investment into Rangers:

“The Principals introduced Jim Park as a consultant in order to introduce Mike Ashley, owner of Newcastle United, who became both a key investor and developer of the RFC retail arm…”

And it all boils to this, from Craig Whyte’s lawyers:

“Our clients have instructed us to issue court proceedings on their behalf against the following Defendants:
- Mr Ahmad and Mr Green for breach of contract and unjust enrichment
- Mr Ahmad, Mr Stockbridge and Mr Green for conspiracy and deceit
- Mr Ahmad and Mr Stockbridge for dishonest assistance
- Mr Green for breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty and for indemnity and/or
restitution and/or an account of gains under s195 Companies Act 2006
- RFCL for knowing receipt, unjust enrichment, indemnity and/or restitution and/or an account of gains under s195 Companies Act 2006 and for a declaration that it holds property on trust for Sevco 5088
- Zeus for, inter alia, dishonest assistance, conspiracy and deceit
- Rangers International for unjust enrichment, knowing receipt and a declaration that it hold any shares registered or to be registered in its name in Sevco 5088 on trust for the Principals”

Channel 4 News is seeking a response from Mr Ahmad, Mr Green, Mr Stockbridge, Zeus Capital and RFC.

"that it holds property on trust for Sevco 5088"

"registered in its name in Sevco 5088 on trust for the Principals”

The only two bits that caught my eye and raised a concern.

We have always been told that 5088 bought NOTHING yet they allude to there being property(Ibrox,Auchenhowie and Albion?) but also that there are "Shares" in the NEW company owned by 5088 Whyte and Earley


Maybe we do need to go through a proper Legal court case to find out just who is the least of the liars we have around our Club :mad:

Well that's the end game right there. Let it go to court and let's bury this shyster once and for all. This all reeks of the last act of a desperate desperate man who dearly wants paid to go away. He needs jailed, he needs to be bankrupt and only then can we start to feel some justice. I'll be disgusted if anyone involved with the club caves and gives him a penny.

You just know timmy Thompson is desperate to get something right!

He is a fly one though.

When he is asked about our situation,he claims he is trying to help us.When he was on with Fury,English and odious after the title stealing was stopped,he goes out of his way to come across as reasonable,placid and objective......

The reality is that he has called everything from BTC to the SPL witch hunt wrong and his tweets and blogs show him up for what he is.......An arrogant,attention seeking prat who has a strong hatred for all things Rangers.

He would be better slithering off to Syria instead of entertaining bigots like 5 names and pieces of s**t like Whyte!

IMO he doesn't want a costly court battle, He wants a pay off. Why else leak letters to the media.

The RFFF might be handy after all. If he takes the 'club' itself to court. Green, Ahmed and the rest can pay their own fee's

It depends.

Why would we need to give him anything?

As far as I can see his complaints appear to be primarily against Green, Ahmad, Stockbridge and Zeus. They are not, never have been, nor will they ever be, Rangers. Nothing more than a bunch of crooks squabbling amongst themselves over their ill gotten gains.

As long as the club can establish he has no valid claim over the assets then we can stand back and watch as they go ahead and attempt to bankrupt each other.

It's difficult to know if by denying it you're taking a pinch of salt or putting your head in the sand.

He seems to think his business reputation (stop laughing at the back there) has been damaged due Green & cos. actions.

He seems determined to destroy their reputations as far as possible too.

I think all Whyte's utterances definitely need taken with a rather large dose of sodium chloride but to dismiss them completely just because it comes from "googly eyes" is a mistake.

Neither Whyte nor his erstwhile compadres at Zeus can be trusted.

"You are Sevco" is hardly a verbal agreement - particularly when there were 2 Sevco's.

No lawyer but I don't fancy his chances. Will we expect a long procession of character witnesses for Mr Whyte to show he is of good stock and a man of his word ? :angel:

Rangers main issues here is that if we go to court, win and then seek damages he will be bankrupt thus a huge sum of cash being spent for nothing. The little slime ball knows this and I feel would settle for an amount equal to court costs.

I am not sure of English/Scots law but if there was a way in which a bond could be lodged to cover court costs from both parties then I would advise Rangers to go for it if he losses then the bond covers costs.

If he had some valid claim on the assets that the IPO investors were led to believe were the company's that they were investing in then you'd have to think so.

If it amounts to no more than a squabble amongst thieves and charlatans as to who is due a share of their ill gotten gains then probably not.

It appears that Mr Thomson is happy to be the 'cheerleader' on behalf of one of the most disreputable 'businessmen' in the UK. That is how low his standard of journalism has sunk. What I find genuinely amazing is that Channel 4 is prepared to allow this on their time! Clearly there are some other people at Channel 4 who may bear some grudge towards Rangers. I wonder who they may be?:angel:

I don't think it likely he even understands the rules of football, never mind being a Tim or Sheep. I've heard from a few people that one of the Earley's has serious leanings to the rabid ones though.

I have little doubt that he was bullied at school, the way he carries on.

We should bin this type of thread, it only gives the interlopers a chance to stir up trouble,

I propose that all this type of thread are shut until the day that whyte actually takes us to court,

If you want my thoughts on it then I can tell you that I actually own Rangers , murray park and all the players contracts, but don't expect me to prove it, I am saying it and that seems good enough.

Feel free to discuss my ownership claim, its as credible as others, I gave Craig Whyte a fiver for the shares he sold to chuky for 2 quid.

last ever post on this type of thread, will comment if we ever have to go to court.
