Rangers administrators have claimed they are fully cooperating with a police investigation into Craig Whyte’s takeover of the club.
Strathclyde Police were handed a dossier by former club director Alastair Johnston in relation to the takeover of Rangers shortly after administrators Duff and Phelps were appointed on February 14.
On Tuesday the administrators said that they had not withheld information from officers investigating the deal, while they also claimed they had initiated proceedings at the High Court in London in relation to Mr Whyte’s purchase of an 85.3% stake in the club from Sir David Murray for £1 in May 2011.
However, the police said they are awaiting the insolvency firm to send them any "relevant information" concerning Mr Whyte's takeover.
David Whitehouse, joint administrator, added: "Over the last few days media reports have referred to police interest in the circumstances surrounding the takeover of Rangers Football Club in May last year. In particular, an impression has been given that we as administrators are in possession of information which may be of interest to the police but, to date, we have not provided.
"Since being appointed administrators in February, we have had a number of meetings with Strathclyde Police and are co-operating fully with them. At no time has any request for information from the police been denied nor delayed in any way.
"It goes without saying that any information in relation to these matters is available to the police. As far as we are aware, a decision has yet to be taken by the police authorities whether an investigation would fall within the jurisdiction of Strathclyde Police or the Metropolitan Police.
"We look forward to that decision being made and will co-operate fully with any investigation. It should also be noted that we have instigated civil proceedings at the High Court in London in relation to the takeover of Rangers."
A Strathclyde Police spokeswoman told STV News on Tuesday: "Strathclyde Police can confirm we have written to the administrators requesting any relevant documentation be handed over to them."
The administrators confirmed the civil action referred to is their attempt to sue Mr Whyte's lawyers Collyer Bristow as well as his parent company Rangers FC Group for more than £25m.
