Under-fire Whyte still feels he is majority shareholder at Rangers

Rangers owner Craig Whyte still feels he is the club's majority shareholder despite the fact the Glaswegians are under administration.

Club administrators Duff & Phelps recently labeled the discredited chairman as 'absolutely irrelevant' in the process of finding the people to take over 'Gers but Whyte is reportedly determined to have his say in who obtains his 85.3% shareholding.

A source close to the takeover discussions told SunSport that Whyte was not yet ready to walk away from the mess which is trying to be cleaned by a couple of serious bidders including ex-director Paul Murray and his Blue Knights and Sale Sharks owner Brian Kennedy.

"Whyte has made it clear he still believes he's got a major say in things," the source said.

"He feels strongly that anybody who wants to do a deal will need to talk to him first.

"The administrators think differently but Whyte insists he's still the majority shareholder."
