Whyte's book already an Amazon No1 bestseller ahead of Crouch and Klopp
Feb. 14, 2020
CRAIG WHYTE'S autobiography is already a No1 best seller on Amazon - putting him ahead of Peter Crouch and Jurgen Klopp.
The former Rangers owner's book, Into the Bear Pit, has been released today and is already racing up the best seller charts on the website.
But the 49-year-old's offering is in at No1 ahead of Peter Crouch's How to be a Footballer and The Little Red Book of Klopp by Giles Elliott on the dedicated ball games list.
Amazon updates their best sellers charts every hour and while Whyte's autobiography isn't in the top 10 sports books overall at time of writing, it currently sits at No11.
However, the site is already selling his book at a discounted price of £7.54, down from it's £9.99 retail price.
Those who want to purchase the former Light Blues chief's book for their Kindle can get it for £5.39.
SunSport published excerpts of Whyte's autobiography last week.
In one part, he admitted that after taking control of Rangers from Sir David Murray, he realised that the club found it hard to attract the same level of celebrity as Celtic.
He claimed that the club then invited Hollywood superstars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to a game while the former was filming World War Z.
However, that hope was never realised and Whyte was forced to settle for comedian and former host of The Generation Game, Jim Davidson.
In another excerpt, Whyte claimed that senior figures in Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party were once ready to offer him a peerage in the House of Lords .

However, he claimed it ultimately didn't happen because it was something he wasn't interested in.
Rangers went into administration in February 2012 under Whyte's ownership, and he ultimately sold his stake to Charles Green in May that year.
The company behind the Ibrox club was subsequently liquidated and the Light Blues dropped down into the Third Division ahead of the 2012-13 season.
Craig Whyte's autobiography Into the Bear Pit, published by Arena Sport , will be released on Friday, February 14, and can be bought for £9.99.
