I would love to take those glasses off him and ram them where the sun don't shine.

I truly feel sorry for the guys,like the magician, that have done good work for the club.... only to be shat on by Whyte.

I hope the guy somehow gets his money back... Im self employed and I know how a loss like that would affect me...

RANGERS may be edging closer to game, set and match but the man who drove the club to the brink is having a ball.

Craig Whyte was pictured splashing the cash and sipping champagne at an exclusive members-only tennis club in France.

The snaps are sure to stick in the throats of all Ibrox fans and their creditors, who are still owed millions by the ailing club.

Last night, magician Alan Duncan, who is owed £2100, hit out: “I wish I could make Whyte disappear in a puff of smoke but failing that, I hope he chokes on that champagne.”

Decked out in a garish pink polo shirt and massive black and gold designer sunglasses, Whyte laughed and shared jokes with three others round his table at the Monte-Carlo Country Club.

He was spotted larking about in the sun with a bevy of beauties, including Swedish girlfriend Izabella Andersson, 32, who he wooed by taking her to Ibrox to watch a match before spending the night at the plush Hotel du Vin in Glasgow’s west end.

Sipping champagne, and looking generally relaxed, the pair did not look out of place in the magnificent surroundings.

But Alan, 43, was furious when he was shown the photographs. He said: “He has left the club in ruins and he has left smaller businesses, such as myself, in real trouble.

“I could be facing financial ruin because of the state Whyte left the club.

“Right up to the day they called in the administrators, they were telling me, ‘Don’t worry, you will get paid’. But after that happened, they just tore up my contract.”

Alan, of Glasgow, was the official kids’ entertainer at Ibrox. He has spent the last two years transforming the family section at Ibrox, which was recently voted the best in Scotland.

Every home game, the father-of-five would go to matches to help keep youngsters entertained. He did face-painting for kids, as well as various magic tricks and handed out helium balloons.

But now his business, Alan’s Magic, face possible financial ruin. He was sick to the stomach to find out he will receive, at most, around 9p for every £1 he is owed.

Alan stands to get around just £180 from the £2000 he is owed – and could even end up with a lot less.

He added: “I made Rangers money by making the family section more popular, which increased sales of family tickets for them, and all the thanks I get is a kick in the teeth.

“Whyte has a lot to answer for but, looking at these pics, it doesn’t look like he will be back here any

time soon.”

The swish club is home to the ATP Monte Carlo Masters tennis tournament, held in April, which attracts some of the best players on the planet, including Andy Murray and world No1 Novak Djokovic.

Despite the club’s name, it is not in Monte Carlo or even in Monaco, but is in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin in the Alpes-Maritimes department of south-east France, just outside Monaco’s north-eastern border.

Members can sit in lap of luxury, ordering bottles of Dom Perignon 2000 vintage at £311 a bottle.

The cheapest champagne on the club’s wine list is a Louis de Sacy, which comes in at £45, or £29 for a half-bottle.

Facilities include saunas, masseurs on call to iron out any aches and pains, and magnificent wood-panel furnishing throughout.

It also boasts a heated ozone-treated swimming-pool, plus a number of tennis courts which are overlooked by the restaurant.

Anyone wishing to join has to apply in writing to the club president and has to be sponsored by two members, before paying the £1000-a-year fee.

It is not known if Whyte is a member of the club or if he was signed in as a guest.

thought when the creditors list was published, that we would be pummeled in the press by small businnses pleading poverty. it didnt happen, and the solidarity displayed was heart warming. some of these small firms will already be feeling the pinch, and they deserve great credit, for not taking the opportunity to kick us when were down.

hopefully this guy will get the gig again, maybe at a slightly increased fee, and recoup his losses.

No chance the RFFF could step in? The guy provided a great service for the club and would be sad to see that bastard cost him his business!

Whyte's a shyster bastard and I wish him nothing but a long and painful death

Agreed and could possibly be given more work by Rangers next season (tu)

Whyte has no shame.

He certainly does not! He will kill other businesses off without even battering an eye lid just to make money!

Some teams etc deserve fuck all from us ie Dundee united but people who offered a service and helped Rangers fans should not have their lifes ruined because of this cunt

Have Duff & Phelps republished the creditors list for the CVA?

It would be good for the fans to get the opportunity to pay some of the small creditors.

It is included in the CVA proposal, but it hasn't been updated, and the creditors who have already been paid are still on the list.

I really did hope this would have been dealt with and the list amended accordingly.

**Just seen the post above**

There have been others added to the list for the CVA than on the interim creditors report.

My only problem is I've no idea which one's have been paid off by Bears and I don't have the first notion how to go about about it.

Duff and phelps never updated most of the Cva document, especially the latter parts.

Club deck on govan stand error and the list of creditors being the main errors that were brought to their attention.

For 600quid an hour I would be expecting 100% accuracy.

Considering the had a continuous "another 48 hours" to correct it.
