Paul Clark attended Glasgow Sheriff Court a day after former Rangers owner Craig Whyte and ex-chief executive Charles Green were charged along with David Whitehouse.

Clark and Whitehouse both worked for the club's administrators Duff and Phelps.

Clark, from Surrey, is accused of an offence under Section 28 of the Criminal Justice Licensing Act 2010 which covers serious organised crime.

The 54-year-old, who also faces a charge of conspiracy, made no plea or declaration and was released on bail.

Whyte, 44, Green, 62 and Whitehouse, 50, were charged with the same offences when they appeared at court on Wednesday.

Green also faces a charge of fraud and an offence under Section 190 of the Companies Act 2006.

All three made no plea or declaration and were granted bail.

Whyte took control of Rangers in May 2011 but by the summer of 2012 Green had taken charge at the Ibrox club by purchasing Rangers' assets and business after it went into administration and liquidation earlier that year. He stepped down as chief executive in 2013.
