Prosecutor Alex Prentice QC will now sum up on Thursday, before Mr Findlay concludes on Friday.

Mr Whyte is accused of acquiring Rangers by fraud. He denies the charge and another under the Companies Act.

The trial, before judge Lady Stacey, was adjourned for the day and will continue on Thursday.
