Does modernising the dressing rooms mean fitting 22 of they mini wardrobes instead of just having a peg to hang your gear on?

Give the wooden panelling a couple of coats of gloss and maybe some scatter cushions for the benches but keep the pegs for tradition.

I wasn’t aware the picture of the queen was gone?

Just assuming it would be safely wrapped up while the work is getting carried out 👍

Hearing the wood panelling has all been ripped out and stuck on a bonfire, along with the picture of the Queen. James Bell tried to dive on and save it. Had to be dragged off by Gerrard, who he called a “scouse cunt” and said he had “desecrated the memory of Moses McNeil”. That’s why he was sacked.

If the wood has to stay ,Look at the difference just a small thing makes like having above the wood papered , the white paint is how it looked last season , the one below was RFC wall paper on a tour I did years ago

The changing rooms need modernised imo.

I'm all for tradition, but we can still achieve that without wooden panelling from the 70s tbh.

Our traditional dressing room is part of our club's heritage.  Every other modern dressing room looks the same as the next with melamine or whatever.    It would be outrageous for the dressing rooms to be altered.

I could see the point if the marble staircase was getting replaced with an escalator. 

Upgrading the dressing rooms doesn't affect the history imo.

If ever your argument needed your photo shop skills it's this one, and here you are using words. You got banned for less.

Thankfully the dressing rooms aren't changing. It's other old rooms and spaces that are being put to better use. The old wood panelling, tiling and all of the other heritage is staying.

It’s the boot room and the Manager’s office downstairs, that you don’t see on the tour, that are being renovated and put to other uses.

The boot room itself hasn’t been used since we moved to Auchenhowie and had basically become a storage area for stuff like water bottles and tactics boards and TVs.

Never said they did. 

I never said you said they did. 

You're calling posters weird for giving their opinions on stadium renovations and then randomly mention paedophiles for some reason.

You're weird tbh.

The biggest question must be .... are they keeping the portable tv in the changing room?

Bigger part, arguably. Bet more of importance has happened in that oak panelled dressing room than has on the marble staircase.

It's a direct link to all of that history. A constant through it all. It's the very same environment that Greig, Jardine, Hubbard and Laudrup prepared in, surrounded by that oak. Change that and you lose some of the essence of that link.

Even further back to Meiklejohn, Morton, Gillick, Waddell, Thornton, Young, Baxter etc.    Struth and Symon giving instructions.     You feel the history in that room.

Of course it affects the history.

 What other dressing room has oak-lined walls or coat hooks with a special hook for your bowler hat?  Where photographs of HM Queen are hung proudly on the walls?

Modern stadia dressing rooms are soulless and lacking in tradition as they all look near enough the same.   There is nothing traditional about a room that looks like it has units from B & Q kitchens and bathrooms.

The Ibrox dressing room is as much a part of our tradition and history as the marble staircase.  

No, it doesn't.

Nobody's saying rip the wooden panels off and paint the walls pink here. There can be a balance between traditional and modern/useful. 

It's about modernisation. The same thing that's happening to other areas of the stadium now and has been happening throughout the history of the stadium.
