Ex-Rangers chief Whyte facing extradition from Mexico
Former Rangers boss Craig Whyte is expected to face extradition from Mexico after being arrested as part of the police investigation into the sale of the club three years ago.
Whyte, 43, was detained on foot of an arrest warrant which was issued last month after he failed to turn up at a High Court hearing in London. He had been earlier been ordered to pay more than £17m to Ticketus. Four other men appeared at a separate court hearing in Glasgow charged with fraudulent activity linked to the sale.
Police Scotland’s Fugitives Unit and the National Crime Agency are involved in proceedings to have Whyte brought before Glasgow Sheriff Court to answer the arrest warrant. Former club owner Sir David Murray, ex-manager Walter Smith and the current boss Ally McCoist could be called as witnesses in any potential future legal action, according to reports.
Wilshere out for up to four months
Arsenal’s midfielder Jack Wilshere who was injured in a tackle with Manchester United’s Northern Ireland under-21 international Paddy McNair will be out of action for up to four months after undergoing surgery on his ankle.
Manager Arsene Wenger fears it could be April before the England star is back on his feet. Wilshere, 22 had been dogged by injuries since breaking into the first time in 2009, but is looking forward to returning to action. He collided with McNair, 19, last Saturday when United won 1-0
He took to Instagram to reassure fans the surgery went well. He declared: “Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticises you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.”
