Summary

Full of startling revelations, this is the previously untold story of greed, corruption and scandal at the heart of Rangers FC, told, definitively, by the man who was at the very centre of the storm.

From being the most dominant club in Scottish football history, Rangers FC was sold to Craig Whyte in 2011...for £1. Although touted as Rangers’ saviour, he was soon hung out to dry as the fall guy for Rangers’ misery as the unthinkable happened. The club was plunged into liquidation and the club suffered the indignity of demotion to the lowest echelon of Scottish football. The demise of Rangers saw Whyte’s reputation eviscerated on the pages of every newspaper, his name vilified on radio shows, TV programmes and blogs. In 2012, he was arrested and accused of fraud. Although he was acquitted, he had to endure years of false accusations from media outlets and multiple death threats from fans. Now, for the very first time, this is his account of the events that shocked world football.

Brilliant book

No involvement in Scottish football but did own an English club and fascinating account — all to common issues and whilst I am sure there are other sides to the story I couldn’t stop
