French businesswoman Sevim Cesim has a lot in common with ex Rangers Boss Paul Le Guen.
Both are French.
Both came to Rangers form Lyon.
Both have links to Olympique Lyonnais Football Club.
Both entered Ibrox during a time of backstabbing, skulduggery, upheaval and change.
Both where flying back home on a jumbo jet after a few short months.
In Sevim Cesim case 4 months, from October 2012 to January 2013 to be exact.
But in Sevim Cesim she could be the biggest, most important, short lived impact signing Rangers football club have ever had.
Keith Jackson – who by the way seems to be working on this story like a man possessed after his “wealth of the radar” pish- in the Daily Record on the 7th of August -typical trying to unsettle Rangers on the day of the big game- had the front page…
THE FRENCH CONNECTION. Rangers whistleblower and former Charles Green Ally Sevim Cesim snapped at airport with -a rather shocked and surprised- Ally McCoist after flying to Scotland to be quizzed by cops.
Cesim was a central figure in Green’s original takeover team working on the public share offering that raised more than £22million.
Very well worth noting that Ally McCoist befriended her while other Senior figures, guys like Green, Stockbridge and Ahmad at the club attempted to oust her after she raised queries about how the money was being spent.
Cesim was sacked within weeks of the share issue being completed.
And most tellingly that before all this She had worked with Ahmad and Stockbridge at Zeus Capital, a Manchester firm who backed Green’s buyout.
Its been reported She raised the alarm not only when she was working inside the club but also with the authorities after she had left.
Now that’s crucial lets have a look at when she left. She left in January 2013, shortly after that, the next month to be exact, Strathclyde Police released that they were investigating Craig Whyte’s takeover of Rangers. Believing there had been a major crime committed during.
They had been investigating this since June 2012 so Why did they suddenly make this public? Did they have new key information from a certain little French piece of crumpet?
The investigation had three key areas
1 the legality of Whyte’s initial deal.
2 the movement of money raised from his notorious link-up with Ticketus.
3 what happened to the missing £14million of unpaid PAYE and VAT.
In April 19th of that year Charles Green made a sharp exit from Ibrox resigning under a cloud of Internal Rangers, SFA investigations and “Paki friend” comments. Which I for one don’t believe for a minute when you consider just days later he was reported to the Serious Fraud Office along with Imran Ahmad.
Did they have new key information from a certain little French fancy?
The list goes on from then on with these cretins day after day, week after week, month after month, tarnishing the Great name of Rangers in the papers with Serious crime investigations attached to it.
Keith Jackson followed up his initial scoop days later in an opinion piece that to the casual observer, reading between the lines suggests that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley -who he mentions him by name not his glorified jumble sale sport shops which I find very telling-, former Ibrox chief executive Craig Mather and finance firm Eurovestech were all up to their nuts in financial illegal skulduggery.
Their cash bankrolled Rangers for months before the IPO share offer.
He mentions the magical £300,000 figure and asks the question did Charles Green rob the club to make it up to them?
Thats what I read into it anyway and as far as I know its still up there on the website so the people mentioned must not object.
Anyway its good to see Sevim Cesim after the repugnant treatment she received at the hands of Charles Green, Brian Stockbridge and Imran Ahmad. Was able to dust herself down and appear in the blurred Lines video.
Talking of people blurring the line between legality and illegality
I hope when the Polis go to have a look round Charles Greens French château. I hope they say to him
“Excuse me Monsieur Green have you got frogs legs?”
Too which Green will reply
“of course Officer why do you ask?”
Too which the Officer will BARK
“WELL HOP INTO THAT POLICE VAN CAUSE YOU’RE NICKED SUNSHINE!!!!”
It appears the dark clouds are dispersing and the sun is once again shining on a free again Rangers and Ibrox and lets hope it is not too long before the boys in blue are saying Bonjour, bonjour to the naughty boys.
If the sultry mademoiselle helps the boys in blue screw the cowboys who tried to screw the boys in royal blue forever.
Then Dame Sevim Cesim has a certain ring to it don’t you think Dear Reader?
Je Suis Sevim Cesim
au revoir brothers and sisters
