Anybody else miss the old Ibrox?

Recommended Posts


Used to go with my dad the adults stood up the terracing  and the  kids we sent down to the white wall trackside to watch the game saw George Young play  way back in the day.

Never had the pleasure of going when it was terracing. Started going when it was all different coloured seats.

My dad took me to 1971 January game against septic, 85,000 that,s when Ibrox was at it's best.

I loved it and still get the excited feeling to this day when I see Ibrox. Nothing comes close. Fond memories of the way it was.

First visit was 1972 I think just before the centenary stand. Was far better then.

Mine was St Johnstone at the end of the 75 season when we buried Stein's 10 in a row :Fod:

Earliest memories I have.. Lifted over the turnstiles by my old man. :tu:

One game v Hibs they were clamping down on lifting kids over the turnstiles. My old man was told he couldnt lift me so he went in and told me to go to the boys gate. As I got to the front of the queue they shut the gates. Got locked out and had to stand outside until the game was over. We won 3-0 or 3-1 I think. 80,000+ at that game.

How could the police manage the crowds then but can't now? If we ever got back to a 80,000 stadium again what would they do?

I miss winning titles and being a team and a Club to be reckoned with

It will come, just some how try and enjoy the journey back as those who hate us get overtaken one by one.

I don't know how I'll mentally cope when we win the league again.

I think I might end up dead

I miss our no Catholic policy 

I dont believe there ever was one....if anything catholics were reluctant to play for us due to the Clubs traditions.

First game sat in the centenary stand against Aberdeen , a 1-0 win a late penalty by Alex Miller .Just under 19000 there, but as an 11 year old my"" memory was Arthur Graham was on the touchline and  a fan shout "HAW GRAHAM YOU MITHERS A NUN" 

Used to think Ibrox was huge but compare to today it dwarfs the old one as it's about twice the height . Think the back seat copland/broom is closer than the front standing behind the goals at old Ibrox

I imagine the police back then weren't pencil pushing cowards and could actually do the job they were hired to do.
