Ibrox Football Complex could be closed in leaked Council papers

A leaked Glasgow City Council document looking at potential budget cuts for 2019 has considered the closure of the Ibrox Football Complex across from Ibrox Stadium.

The document, leaked to the Evening Times, shows moves are still under consideration. As part of budget cuts, many sports facilities and centres are being considered for closure.

The Ibrox Football Complex is one of them.

But if it is to be shut down or sold off, should Rangers make a move for the useful space across from the stadium?

Ibrox Complex at centre of Fanzone row

This is the same area that was at the centre of the Fanzone row earlier in the year.

Rangers were denied use of the Complex for a pre-match Fanzone after intervention by Glasgow City Councillours and politicians. It has since been shown that they lied about discussions on the subject. This was thanks to official documentation obtained by Freedom of Information.

If Rangers owned the Complex, there would be no such issues. The space is predominantly used for kid’s football. Rangers make use of it with Soccer Schools and player visits.

Of course, this is only an idea and there is absolutely no suggestion from Official bodies that this move is on. The leaked emails were merely considerations by the Council. The Ibrox Complex may not even be closing.

But if the cuts outlined in the leaked documents go ahead, do you think this is something the club should look at?
