Rangers Supporter Liason Officer Greg Marshall has made some interesting comments on social media when quizzed by a fan over the potential expansion of Ibrox in the future.
Gers fans have bought phenomenal numbers of tickets in recent seasons, with 10,000 on the waiting list for season tickets, and fans have regularly suggested it is time Ibrox is increased beyond it’s existing 50,817 capacity.
Marshall confirmed on Twitter that the club have had a 3D survey of the 120-year-old stadium to “assess all options available” as they look at a wide variety of improvements and upgrades around the ground.
The last major redevelopment of Ibrox came in the mid-nineties as the corners between the Sandy Jardine Stand and the Broomloan and Copland Road ends were filled in and the big screens installed.
The Archibald Leith-designed Bill Struth Main Stand, opened in 1929, is one of the most recognisable in football with its iconic red brick facade and is the one feature of the stadium that should remain unchanged no matter what happens..
With over 47,000 season ticket holders last season, there’s clearly far more demand than the club can satisfy so expanding Ibrox may well be a neccessity before too long.
