A TYCOON pal of Scotland's most powerful crime boss Jamie "Iceman" Stevenson can be revealed as the new owner of a trendy haunt of Old Firm stars.

Stewart Gilmore, 54, will tomorrow welcome revellers to the launch party of the Bothwell Bar Brasserie.

The venue formerly called Da Luciano was sold by convicted pimp Hugh O'Donnell, 54, and lapdancing boss Billy Peterkin, 57.

Gilmore, from Newton Mearns, near Glasgow, is a colourful figure who is a friend of jailed millionaire drugs boss and money launderer Stevenson, 46, who he visits behind bars.

On Thursday Gilmore was at Da Luciano along with O'Donnell, who was jailed for six months in 2006 for running the Parkgrove House sex for sale sauna in Glasgow.

The next day Gilmore's business associate JeffCurrie said: "We are partners. We're both owners."

Gilmore then confirmed that they were co owners but later claimed the restaurant was owned by Currie in partnership with his 27 year old daughter Stephanie.

Gilmore said: "It's not me that's going into Da Luciano, it's my daughter Stephanie. I'd rather not speak about it."

Asked about his connection to Stevenson, who is serving 12 years and nine months for moneylaundering, he said: "Just a friendship, five a side football. I have visited him in prison, yes."

Over the years, married dad of three Gilmore has worked in retail with links to designer clothes stores.

Da Luciano has been a favourite haunt of footballers for years.

O'Donnell and Peterkin putit up for sale for offers over Gilmore's lawyers insist he has no interest in Da Luciano but records show he was the sole and founding director of Daluc Ltd.

He resigned four days after the appointment of Currie, who is now the sole director.

Gilmore's daughter Stephanie's name does not appear on the public record.

Stevenson was the main target of the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency's Operation Folklore.

He and stepson Gerry Carbin were jailed for money laundering in an international operation targeting the country's biggest drug importation gang.

The four year operation seized more than 12 tons of drugs worth more than When officers swooped to demolish Stevenson's crime empire, they seized 48 watches, including 13 Rolex, five Cartier, three Breitling, two Panerai and two Audemars Piguet.

But a Sunday Mail investigation revealed the Crown Office returned the watches rather than confiscate them under proceeds of crime laws.

Stevenson and Carbin, 30,agreed to pay just to get the watches back, despite the collection being valued at more than at their trial.
