Craig Whyte Rangers tax casePhone-in fanatic ‘Tommy from Glasgow’ has claimed his most high profile victim- Rangers chairman Craig Whyte.

Most phone-in hosts are familiar with his whirlwind style which can run to three or four minutes without drawing breath as he goes off on one!

Earlier this year ‘Tommy’ enjoyed a lively exchange with former SFA chief David Taylor who joked that Celtic had few friends in the media- especially in the BBC.

Whyte has kept an even lower profile since putting Rangers into administration but was rumbled by Tommy’s intrepid style.

With the mainstream media unable to engage Whyte in anything to do with the future of the club Tommy swung into action, catching Whyte off guard and remarkably forthcoming about the state of the clubs’ finances to a virtual stranger.

Amazingly Whyte claimed that there was no chance of Rangers going into liquidation and that there would be no tax liability at the end of the current process to which Tommy suggested that they should ‘hook up’.

Posing as businessman Stewart Henderson, Tommy claimed to be based in Melbourne, New York and Silicon Valley despite speaking with the broadest of Glasgow accents. Born in Possil Tommy described himself as a die-hard true blue as Whyte questioned his background.

Rangers fans have reacted furiously to Whyte’s decision to put the club into administration with a number of interested parties in discussions with administrators Duff and Phelps about investing in the club to take them out of administration.
