Forms and paperwork matter.
Where someone is trying not to leave a trace, there is always the risk of a paper trail.
Regular readers of this blog will know that Craig Whyte had a chequered history with official paperwork, especially relating to Companies House.
Now, days after he lost the case being pursued against him by Ticketus (and the judgement in which I am trying to lay hands on) and just after his claims to be intimately involved with Charles Green in Sevco 5088 Ltd were rubbished by Mr Green comes the proverbial “smoking gun”.
STV News have discovered that forms signed, apparently, on 9th May 2012 have only now been lodged at Companies House.
These forms relate to the appointment of Adrian Earley and Craig Whyte as Directors of Sevco 5088 Ltd and the signatory authorising each appointment is Mr Green.
It would appear that someone kept them safe just in case they might be needed. Who could that have been, one wonders?
No matter how carefully Mr Green tries to explain this development, I suspect that we may see him departing the Ibrox stage imminently. It may be true that he only met Mr Whyte once, but that meeting was enough to appoint Mr Whyte and his colleague as Directors. Funnily enough Mr Green did not mention that bit of the conversation.
Surely it must have slipped his mind.
And in a further development Rangers are to have a board meeting before their next game tomorrow to discuss Mr Green’s situation.
I suspect there is a strong possibility that the meeting might take place in Mr Green’s absence. I think it is possible he will quit before then.
Of course, if he does so, his share tie-in might be loosened.
Suddenly might we see the largest single shareholding in Rangers being dumped on the market?
The plot thickens!
