Rangers have been handed a boost after plans for the second stage of the Ibrox refurbishment were approved.

The recladding of external roofs on Gers‘ stadium’s Broomloan and Copland Road stands was given the go-ahead by Glasgow City Council chiefs on Friday.

Rangers chairman Dave King vowed to make Ibrox a stadium fans can be proud of

PA:PRESS ASSOCIATION

The planning application was submitted last December

The application was submitted on December 15 last year.

That came just two weeks after chairman Dave King admitted the club had spent a lot of money carrying out Ibrox repairs.

Speaking at the Gers AGM, King said: “A lot of the work we’ve done over the last couple of years has probably not rightly been termed ‘improvements’.

“I think what we’ve done is refurbishing and repairing a stadium that had become dilapidated to get it back to being fit for purpose and something Rangers supporters should be proud of.

Aye, but have they replaced the roof cladding there? I didn't see them doing it and I had my telescope trained.

The Sandy Jardine Stand is completely overclad with a 40yr cladding warranty. The stands behind the goals are next along with the GRP sheeting on the sides. Undersides of all three stands will be done bit by bit in small stages 

Pity Fat Mike didnt feel like doing anything but let's keep ripping into King meantime 👍

How the fuck did I miss it. Bloody telescope.

King, Sir Minty and the Hairdo, slashed the budget for the upkeep of the stadium when they were here the last time and it was never put right  

So aye we can rip into him.

I would like to refurbish The Ibrox Trophy Room by the end of May with a nice piece of silverware that not only halts 10 in a row dead in its tracks but have a nice little plaque placed in front of it in The cabinet simply saying 55 and counting

any ideas on how much money all in would the club be looking at  for a FULL refurb of ibrox??  would it not make more sense to look at building a new 60k+ seater stadium???

Forget a new stadium. Ibrox is irreplaceable and iconic. A few refurbs here and there it will be restored. The inside, particularly the main stand, needs a lick of paint over the hand railings, steps etc.

We sat in CD4 for the Bury game and you can see the difference with the new cladding. Still the front section to do and reinstall the lettering.

Will be good to see the other two stands done. Would love to see the yellow screens replaced with blue ones but I doubt that'll happen probably just clear ones.

Exactly.

Spend top dollar refurbishing the concourses and toilets, stadium surrounds and Edmiston House.

The Copland and Broomloan are easy modernised by putting glass or screen cladding over the backs of them and recladding Argyle House. 

Last thing I want is Ibrox looking like a Meccano set like so many other stadiums.

We could do with a larger capacity stadium. If we're cutting away allocation to a wee corner then we could go up to 60-65,000. Money's no there right now though and honestly I don't want them to change the stadium too much. Keep the same appearance but add an extra tier around broomloan/jardine/copland so that all 4 stands have 3 tiers. 

I'm no an architect so no got a scooby if it's possible or how much would be needed. Let's just focus on restoring the stadium.

👍 It makes you wonder why the club didn't utilise the offer of supporters willing to help (can't recall the ins and outs of it). Jobs like the touching up railings and steps with some paint aren't exact skill reliant. 

I would think, however, one of the more costly jobs will be refurbing the exterior of the main stand. Noticed it on Friday, its in bad nick and something needs done about it.

I would imagine due to its listed status all we can do to the main stand is replace the glass and repaint all the metal work.

Biggest thing that would help the main stand would be to pedestrianise Edmiston Drive.

I am sure that Glasgow City Council would be very keen to assist with any scheme to upgrade Edmiston Drive.

Surely be able to refurb the brickwork despite its listed status? It is looking aged these days. Maybe it will only need a clean anyway, but it looks neglected.

The main stand? The main stand brickwork looks fine. It's clean and it's holding up well.
