The start of the 2011a12 season should have marked the dawn of a bold and brave era for Rangers Football Club, as new owner Craig Whyte accepted the keys to Ibrox from Sir David Murray. But football became a sideshow during Whyteas first campaign as tax rows, court action and the plunge into administration hogged the headlines in one of the most dramatic seasons Rangers have ever seen. With unique insights from those inside the game and within the club during its darkest hours, For Richer, For Poorer charts the tumultuous tenure of Whyte, examines in detail David Murrayas own time in the owneras chair and puts the Charles Green bid for control in the spotlight. Murray took a white-knuckle ride on footballas roller-coaster. He savoured the thrills of unbeatable highs, leading the club to the famous nine in-a-row sequence of championships, and suffered agonising lows as the worldas financial markets crashed and the club struggled to cope with mounting debts. The colourful businessman also changed the face of Scottish football, breaking down religious barriers and spending millions to attract world-class stars. Whyte spoke of grand plans to restore stability to the club, but ultimately became the man who led Rangers into the hands of the administrators. Green was the man chosen to repair the damage and put a proud institution back on track, charged with opening a new chapter in the club's rich history. For Richer, For Poorer puts events at Ibrox under the microscope to reveal the untold story of an incredible period in Rangers history.Craig Whyte, 2011 EVERY RANGERS-UPPORTING SCHOOLBOY dreams of one day running out of the Ibrox tunnel to a tumultuous ...
