Rangers have appealed to supporters to avoid the Copland Concourse on entering and exiting Ibrox Stadium against Lyon due to the ongoing construction of Edmiston House.
Rangers are building a prestigious new space in the grounds of Ibrox which will house an official club store, museum and events space as part of the Gers’ 150th anniversary year.
The development of the prestigious new Edmiston House at the Copland concourse is now well underway. To protect the building site we have had to reduce the width of the external Copland concourse behind the stand near to Edmiston Drive.

But due to the ongoing construction the width of concourse – which is normally relatively congested on matchdays – has been reduced even further.
This means supporters are being encouraged to avoid the Copland concourse unless absolutely necessary when the game against Lyon finishes this evening.
Here is the travel advice published on the Ibrox side’s official website, which we encourage everyone to read as it contains several important and helpful images:
Club Deck, Main Stand and East & West Enclosures
Heading for the Ibrox Subway from Club Deck, Main Stand or East Enclosure, then simply keep walking on Edmiston Drive past the Copland concourse and turn left at the traffic lights onto Copland Road.
Supporters should not walk northwards onto the Copland concourse from Edmiston Drive. This will cause congestion due to the majority of fans heading south towards Edmiston Drive.
If heading for Paisley Road West then please use the steps at Harrison Drive and turn right onto Copland Road. This will allow you to easily walk south to Paisley Road West.
Sandy Jardine Stand
If wishing to access Paisley Road West to thereafter head East or West then please do not walk the full length behind the Copland Stand. Either walk from Mafeking Street or down the steps at Harrison Drive. Both will lead directly onto Copland Road and allow you easier access by turning right and walking Southwards.
Rangers are preparing to welcome Ligue 1 side Lyon to Ibrox as Steven Gerrard’s side prepare for their fourth straight Europa League campaign.
Amid injuries to some of their key players, Lyon may also be calling on a former Premier League striker in what would be his first match in the UK since leaving.
