Rangers pay total £21m to administrators after wrongful prosecution
Rangers paid out a total of £21million to the two people who eventually wound up the football club in 2012, according to Glasgow Live.
David Whitehouse and Paul Clark were the two individuals appointed to administer the downfall of Rangers Football Club in 2012 but they were then wrongfully arrested in 2014.
Charges against the duo were soon dropped as the Light Blues but they still had to be paid £10.5million each in damages as a result.
They weren’t the only ones to receive money from Rangers after the 2012 debacle as former chief executive Charles Green and former director Imran Ahmad were both wrongfully prosecuted.
Green was awarded damage costs of £6million for the whole incident after a hearing by the Scottish Parliament’s Criminal Justice Committee.

These legal disputes and subsequent costs will have caused a lot of upheaval at the club in a time where they really don’t need it having just produced the worst Champions League group-stage performance in history.
Douglas Park has enough on his plate already so now that these hearings have been concluded, he should be allowed to fully focus on what really matters here and now.
This is a time for the whole club to come together and once and for all leave 2012 in the past so they can build towards a very fruitful future.
