Duff & Phelps tickets deal emails

BBC Scotland has been given access to emails concerning the takeover by Craig Whyte of Rangers FC.

The emails formed part of the BBC Scotland investigation into the club's current administrators Duff & Phelps, Craig Whyte and Ticketus.

Email number one, dated 13 June 2011, is from Rangers director Phil Betts, inviting a number of people, including David Grier from Duff and Phelps, to an evening out in London to celebrate the acquisition of Rangers.

Email number two is from Mr Betts and Mr Grier of Duff & Phelps with the subject "Ticketus".

The message is dated 24 June and discusses the raising of an invoice to be backdated to 9 May, which would have been three days after Mr Whyte's takeover of Rangers.

Mr Grier initially told the BBC he did not find out about the Ticketus deal until August 2011.
