FOOTIE’S Danny Guthrie has been made bankrupt after failing to repay a £100,000 loan from a pal.
The ex-Newcastle United midfielder, 34, borrowed from businessman Chris Heath to help buy a house.
A charge was placed on the property meaning if he sold it Chris would get his cash back.
But Chris says a lawyer made an error meaning the charge was useless — and Guthrie never repaid him. Chris then petitioned for bankruptcy.
Stoke-on-Trent county court issued the order in July meaning Guthrie, who now plays in Iceland, is bankrupt.
Chris, from Broadway, Worcs, said: “I feel very let down. We met a few years ago through mutual contacts at charity events and got on well.
"He seemed a decent guy and I was happy to lend him the money.
“I asked him numerous times to repay the bridging loan but he refused so I had no choice but to make him bankrupt. I’m now hoping the administrators will repay me.”
Guthrie began at Liverpool FC.
In 2012 his wedding to Rebecca Middleman erupted in a brawl with cops called three times.
The Sun contacted him for comment.
