FORMER Rangers’ owner Craig Whyte is set to be embroiled in a court battle after his two housekeepers at his Highland castle appeared in court charged with stealing from him.

Jane Hagan, 50, and her partner Terance Horan, 53, both of High Street, Grantown, appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday and pleaded not guilty to stealing an array of items from Castle Grant between 1 June and 7 September.

Both are alleged to have stolen items including a quad bike, quantities of coins and Dutch guilders, a silver photograph frame, a hip flask and cups, three sets of cufflinks, a fuel card, a telescope and case.

Motherwell-born Whyte has a home in Monaco and stays at historic Castle Grant, which he bought in 2006 for £720,000, on the edge of the village where the Bentley was kept.
