If this prick had of done what he did to us to say the New York Yankees or any other major North American sports franchise he would be beside Jimmy Hoffa, missing in action, 6 feet under, wearing cement shoes at the bottom of Loch Ness, not in the papers spouting his pish

Why is this c*** not in jail yet?

All he does is leave a trail of devastation behind him at every company he has been involved in.

.....because as much as it pains me to say it, he has most likely done nothing illegal. He may be a 'moral free zone cunt', but there's no doubt that he makes sure he stays a baw whisker on the right side of legal.

He has a court case in Jan 2015 dunno what it's regarding if it's Ticketus or Rangers.

Most likely a civil action as opposed to any criminal proceedings.

Whyte may spend the next few years in court, fighting various claims and counter claims - but I don't think he'll ever be found guilty of any illegality or criminal action.

He owes millions to ticketus, he stole 9m of PAYE money from us amongst various other monies, his takeover of our club was fraudulent, he'll be found guilty on a number of things.

CRAIG Whyte was up to his old asset-stripping tricks yesterday as he was finally hounded out of Scotland.

The former Rangers owner even took the heating oil with him as he fled his country seat, which is about to be repossessed by the bank after he failed to pay the mortgage.

Whyte’s dad Tom – who tried to hide his face when he saw our photographer – supervised workmen as they loaded the oil in drums on to a trailer at Castle Grant near Grantown-on-Spey.

They also stripped out French chandeliers, chosen by Whyte’s ex-wife Kim, and other fittings from the house.

Whyte and Kim bought Castle Grant for £800,000 in 2006 – with a 110 per cent mortgage – and vowed to spend millions restoring it.

But she moved out after their marriage fell apart, and he has been refusing to pay the £7000-a-month mortgage for two years.

Bankers HBOS had been trying for almost a year to repossess the house.

The latest hearing in the case was due to take place at Inverness Sheriff Court today, but it was scrapped after Whyte gave up the fight and agreed to hand the castle over.

Removal men have been busy at the house in recent days. It’s understood many of its contents have already been taken to London.

A source said: “There have been vans at the castle three times over the last 10 days and at least six lorryloads of stuff have been taken away.

“The chandeliers were taken away on Sunday.

“And Craig’s old man was there today while the oil was being taken away.”

A former employee at the castle said: “If Whyte could dismantle the castle, he’d have that away as well.

“There’s been a race against time. He knows a repossession company will be instructed by the end of the week to replace the locks and secure the grounds to keep him out.”

It’s understood Whyte directed the stripping of the castle from his bolthole in Monaco. The source said: “He always has his father doing his dirty work.

“Wherever you see Tom Whyte, something is going down that Craig pushed the button on.”

The repossession is the latest in a string of humiliations for Whyte, who has also been ordered to pay investment firm Ticketus £17.7million after lying about his business pedigree when he took over Rangers. He is likely to be forced in to bankruptcy because of the Ticketus case.

Whyte sealed the deal to take control at Ibrox with money from Ticketus – paid in exchange for the rights to three years’ worth of season ticket revenue.

He constantly denied making any such deal – and accused the Daily Record of lying

when we revealed it. But he was finally forced to admit the truth and eventually driven out.

The old Rangers went into liquidation. Police raided Castle Grant last year – removing the front gates in the process – as they investigated Whyte’s takeover of the club.

Whyte has created a complex web of companies over the years, using different spellings of his name and different dates of birth to register his directorships at Companies House.

He has been a master of the “old switcheroo”, where assets from one company are moved on to another, building up huge debts before one of the companies go bust.

Whyte’s business affairs are littered with court cases and complex litigation.

One source said: “That’s how he lives his life – in and out of court, insisting the world is in the wrong and he is being constantly misunderstood. He doesn’t pay for anything unless he has to and his skin is so thick he doesn’t care who he turns over.”

HBOS and their lawyers would not comment on the repossession.

Make no mistake, Whytes extravagant lifestyle is coming to an end very, very soon. He was always playing the game of "other people's money" and whilst some can get away with it time after time after time, he chose the wrong business to pull off his biggest attempt yet.

The guy will be bankrupt, broke, truly penniless and unemployable very shortly. Couldn't happen to a more vile person. (tu)
