Craig Whyte has told Radio Scotland listeners that the club from Ibrox is a new one compared to the one he purchased for £1 in 2011.

It’s an issue that the state broadcaster and all mainstream media outlets in Scotland don’t want to address despite announcing the death of the old club in June 2012.

Readers of the Daily Record, The Sun, Evening Times and The Herald were greeted with that news then without any explanation Charles Green’s club were claiming the record of the club that had their CVA refused by Her Majesty.

The new club formed in 2012 played in the Third Division of the SFL, didn’t play in any UEFA competition, lost out to Queen of the South in the Challenge Cup and entered the League Cup and Scottish Cup at the first round.

Incredibly in the summer of 2016 rather than celebrate reaching the top flight publishers were carrying claims about #goingfor55 with BBC Scotland among the cheer-leaders.

Yesterday Whyte published his book, Into The Bear Pit, at lunchtime he was interviewed by Off The Ball with the BBC website reporting:

Q: One emotionally very, very divisive issue, which to this day divides Scottish football, and that is are Rangers a new club? What’s your view?

CW: Yes, obviously they are.

Since reaching the top flight the new club have had to watch Celtic lift all 10 domestic trophies on offer.
