Pictures showing the new Hummel Training Centre stand at the Rangers training ground have been shared online as the club prepares to welcome Chelsea on its grand opening.
A Rangers development side will play their Chelsea equivalents as the club open up the new seating area, designed to help the development of players at the club, both male and female.
The club certainly hasn’t shirked on the development either, with its practicality supplemented by a cool, stylish design.

“A range of other exciting developments are taking place to enhance an already excellent environment.”
The new stand is part of a 216 metre square complex within the training ground for the club’s Academy players.
This is all designed to give our young footballers the best possible football education and to give the youngster’s exposure to the demands of the first-team as early as possible.
Head of Youth Development Craig Mullholland spoke about the developments in a Twitter Q & A last October.
“The four new dressing rooms combined with the education suite will make a massive difference to the time spent on and quality of education for our young Rangers players,” said Mullholland.
“We are currently investigating a full-size indoor dome to allow us to play matches and increase the quantity of training during the winter months.
Work on the stand has been ongoing since November with part of the financing for the development coming from the Rangers Fans Fighting Fund.
