    Craig Whyte edited Jim Traynor's articles at the DR

    Long suspected this was the case but now confirmed by Whyte

    Herald Article


    'Whyte – who bought Rangers from David Murray for £1 in 2011 – also claims that he was able to get stories “pulled” from the Scottish press whenever he wanted.


    “Jim Traynor used to send me his articles through before he’d print them, and I’d correct them for him. In the pre-internet days, Murray must have had complete control. Some journalists were happy to have a good relationship with Rangers if that meant getting stories, even if as a result it became difficult to criticise the club.


    “Traynor had got in touch ... about a month after I went into Ibrox. We went for lunch at the Rogano restaurant and from that day he hounded me for a job. I was never that impressed with him. I would soon discover he could fly with the wind.” '

    That's you blown your chances of a career with the BBC.

    Surely it's a pack of lies and honest Jim will immediately sue to clear his good name and restore his reputation for journalistic integrity?

    Daily Record with a very weak defence. If Whyte was lying the Daily Record would be in court stopping the book coming out.

    "Real Facts" and "Keith Jackson" used in the same sentence

    Keith Jackson calling someone else makes me laugh (a little) - ooops, is that slanderous?

    It's almost as if he manufactured crises so he could go to the Rogano for lunch.

    Need to read between the lines on this one.

    KJ even admits that he apologised to Craig Whyte for a story that was basically true. Solid evidence that the Daily Ranger was badly compromised.
