The Crown Office has said it will consider fresh charges against the former Rangers oldco administrators and the former chief executive of the newly-formulated company.

David Whitehouse and Paul Clark were accused alongside Charles Green relating to their dealings with the club.

On Monday, a judge at the High Court in Edinburgh dismissed the remaining charges against the two Duff and Phelps employees, two weeks after the Crown dropped five charges against the pair.

The Crown dismissed charge three on the indictment against the pair, which accused them of not disclosing the identity of a "person engaged in money laundering".

The prosecution also deserted another allegation they faced pro loco et tempore, meaning the procurator fiscal could return to it at a later date.

A charge against Green was also temporarily deserted, meaning the 62-year-old, as things stand, is not currently charged with any accusations.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Crown said: "The Crown will give consideration to raising a fresh indictment against Paul Clark, David Whitehouse and Charles Green within the statutory time limits."

Whitehouse and Clark were accused in the charge which was deserted pro loco et tempore of conspiring with Whyte, Green and former Rangers finance director Imran Ahmad to defraud the club’s creditors of funds and assets.

It was also alleged in this charge that the pair allowed Whyte, Green and Ahmad to acquire the club at "significantly below the true market value".

The charge claimed Ahmad paid Clark and Whitehouse an exclusivity fee of £200,000 as the joint administrators of oldco Rangers.

Whyte, Green, David Grier, Gary Withey, 51, and Ahmad still face a number of charges relating to their dealings with the club.

:: An earlier draft of this story stated The Crown was proceeding to raise a fresh indictment against Paul Clark, David Whitehouse and Charles Green.

This was based on information sent to media outlets by the Crown Office on February 22. 

The amended copy above, which makes it clear that the Crown Office is only considering raising the action, follows an updated  statement from the Crown Office  on February 23.
