A 37-year-old man has been arrested over allegations of "offensive" online material relating to the Rangers tax case.
The man, from Glasgow, was arrested on Thursday after going to a police station in Glasgow. The man went voluntarily to Helen Street Police Office at 1.15pm and was arrested by the Football Co-ordination Unit.
He was released on an undertaking and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal. It is expected that he will appear before Glasgow Sheriff Court in December.
Rangers won a significant battle against the HM Revenue and Customs earlier this week with a tax tribunal ruling that payments made to some Rangers players through trusts were loans.
The three-person First Tier Tax Tribunal could not reach a unanimous decision on the club's use of Employee Benefit Trusts between 2001 and 2010. Rangers still face an investigation by the Scottish Premier League into whether the EBTs should have been declared to football authorities.
Dozens of online posts on social media sites and online blogs have been devoted to discussion of the case and its fallout.
