Rangers have announced another ‘flagship development’ of Ibrox as part of the club’s 150th-anniversary celebrations – with work set to get going this week.
The ‘Blue Sky Lounge‘ will be housed in the rear of the Sandy Jardine Stand and the “state-of-the-art multi-purpose lounge will boast panoramic views of Ibrox and serve over 330 guests” as well as operating as a restaurant.
Commercial director James Bisgrove hailed the plans as the club looks forward to welcoming the first guests later in 2022, saying: “The Blue Sky Lounge is another flagship development at Ibrox as part of our 150th-anniversary celebrations.
“Alongside New Edmiston House and the new Club Museum, the board is committed to continually modernise and enhance the Ibrox match day experience, and we look forward to welcoming supporters to the new Blue Sky Lounge restaurant (to open 7-days a week) and matchday hospitality guests later this calendar year.”
Questions raised over Edmiston House after work appears to grind to a halt at Ibrox
As the new ‘flagship development’ was launched, fans have been wondering what is going on with the work at the new Edmiston House.
With nothing appearing to have happened on the site for weeks and claims on social media that the building warrant has been removed, there’s not much clarity from Rangers.
Rather than launching another ‘flagship – how many ‘flagship developments’ can we have at any one time – perhaps finishing the one that fans have ploughed well over ‘seven figures’ into funding would be a better move.
