It’s a long, long time since I visited Ibrox with Lee Kyle, but it seems stupid not to include it. Even if the postbag will be inundated again with anti-Scottish sentiment. “Oooh, Scotland again, eh Andy?” Yeah, I’m so sorry that it’s been two months since the last one. Pathetic.
Even though dusk was coming when we visited, it’s definitely a grand stadium. The glass staircases at either end of the Main Stand are undoubtedly spectacular and there’s little wonder that this stand is a listed building. Its beautiful red brick façade is just magnificent.
In fact, Lee and I decided to chance our arm a little as we wandered along this end of the stadium and opened the reception door. Here, a security guard was only too happy to let us take a couple of snaps of the hallway.
Back outside and we passed the Rangers gates, always an excellent addition to a ground. There was one end that barely resembled a football ground (points off for that), but overall it was a very enjoyable visit. The Main Stand alone is worth your time.
Please help feed this ludicrous obsession by popping onto Amazon for a look at my book.
