With their cherished institution faced with administration or Craig Whyte the Real Rangers Men on board at Ibrox in 2011 couldn’t wait to bail out.

The wee tax case wouldn’t go away, it had been overdue since November 2011 and winning the SPL would leave Champions League qualifying in the hands of Ally McCoist.

To top it all off word was getting out about the real tax case, the one that had funded a decade of success through a questionable ‘Trust’ scheme that had attracted players that the club wouldn’t have had a prayer of getting.

As if that wasn’t bad enough Celtic had found their spirit again under Neil Lennon with a younger squad emerging following the sale of Aiden McGeady.

The Craig Whyte fraud trial covered some of that background with Ian Shanks from Lloyds Bank revealing the culture of greed within the blue room of unsurpassed dignity.

The trial continues.
