Rangers have unveiled exciting plans to create a permanent Champions Wall next to Ibrox Stadium.
The Gers are ramping up efforts ahead of their 150th year and earlier this week managing director Stewart Robertson provided a detailed update on the plans for a Rangers museum, with work on the site already underway.

While the wider New Edmiston House plan is requiring ‘massive investment’ from the club, it’s not the only project the board has sanctioned.
In an email to supporters on Friday evening, plans for ‘The Rangers Champions Wall’ were unveiled.
The release describes the wall as a ‘landmark installation next to Ibrox Stadium that will allow supporters to share their memories and photographs in a unique photomosaic that will proudly display a selection of our most famous legends and moments.’
Steven Gerrard is set to be shown at the centre of the mosaic, but eight other champions from down the years, including John Greig and Richard Gough, will also feature.
‘A photomosaic is a big picture made up of thousands of small pictures and this unique opportunity will mean that supporters from all over the world can be part of this permanent installation,’ continues the release. ‘Supporters can also buy a memento of the display that includes their personal photo which makes a place on The Rangers Champions Wall the perfect gift.’
It’s then explained that profits from the project will be reinvested to improve the stadium and general matchday experience.
The cost of getting a photo onto the wall is £45, while framed mementos start from £25 [The Rangers Champions Wall].
This is an excellent concept and one that many supporters will no doubt get behind without hesitation.
There’s plenty going on in and around Ibrox right now and given the strength of the first-team squad, it’s shaping up to be a special 150th year both on and off the pitch.
