Whyte has been issued with notices of complaint over breaches of two disciplinary rules, a week after he was ruled unfit to be a club official.
Rangers have been hit with notices of complaint over five alleged breaches of rules, including failing to abide by SFA regulations over the `fit and proper person' test.
Meanwhile, administrators Duff and Phelps are attempting to prevent the club from being tied to a £24.4m deal with Ticketus.
Whyte agreed the season ticket deal with the London firm to help subsidise his takeover of the Scottish champions last May.
Whyte put Rangers into administration last month despite effectively clearing the Glasgow club's £18m debt to Lloyds Banking Group with the Ticketus money.
"Ticketus first entered a ticket purchase agreement with Rangers Football Club in 2009 when the club was owned by Sir David Murray. The agreement was for Ticketus to purchase some of the club’s future season tickets in advance at a discounted price, which the club would then resell at the intended sale price," Ticketus say on their website.
"Ticketus’ agreement is with Rangers Football Club plc as the entity which originally owned the tickets."
Duff and Phelps raised the action in the Court of Session in Edinburgh on Thursday. Ticketus told the court of their ambition to buy the club as part of the Blue Knights consortium led by former director Paul Murray.
An outcome may not be known for a few weeks, but could have ramifications for Murray's consortium.
Ticketus claim their investment is secure no matter who owns Rangers, but Ticketus would become an unsecured creditor rather than a stakeholder if the administrators' court action is successful.
The administrators want the court's approval not to pay Ticketus money earned from season tickets until 2015.
Ticketus has taken legal advice on the agreement and is confident it will be upheld in court. It is also confident that the deal for future ticket sales will remain in place if Rangers go into liquidation.
