Beşiktaş Sporting Director Ceyhun Kazancı has suggested that Rangers leftback Ridvan Yilmaz may have ‘followed his dream’ but that he wasn’t ready.
The Turkish supremo of the 21-year old’s former club was speaking to Turkish press and said the following about Yilmaz’ exit:
Now, something interesting Ibrox Noise noted at the time of Yilmaz’ transfer was something we were widely abused by fans for observing:
The ‘dream of making money’ COULD be his hopes for making his club a profit, yes, but it could also be mercenary desire to get rich, which isn’t the best motivation for a player so young.
The point? His sporting director didn’t think he was ready, and he may have been tempted by money.
Either way, the transfer is yet to bear any fruit at all and we’re almost in October.
