New Rangers museum - how does “Walter Smith House” sound?


Recommended Posts

already said by someone else but if the club were to come out and rename the entire stadium i wouldn't mind that at all. not saying i expect that to happen but that's what he means to us. if anyone deserves that honour then it's Walter Smith.

get working on a statue and start renaming the broomloan/copland.

Stand, Statue and the goddamn Street. 

Walter Smith Drive sounds good to me

When the building of the new Ed House is done there should be a walkway built leadibg up to it and the ground, named after him, or else we just pay the council to have edminston drive renamed

Could name the entire stadium after him as far as I'm concerned. That's how important he is to my generation.

This. 

Nothing I can think of sounds just because of how much he gave me as a child, teen and adult. He shaped my footballing life as a supporter. 

The connection we had with him will never be replicated, something we will all take with us. He's immortal

The Copland is the traditional Rangers end. It should be named after the greatest modern day Ranger. (For me he's the greatest ever) 

Yep. And as a fan of the club first I think it’s fitting. Also, he was from Carmyle originally and the Copland is on the East side of the stadium.

Got to be a stand named after him at least, the fact I wasn’t alive for a single 9IAR title and yet he’s still the greatest manager I’ve seen while alive speaks volumes about the work he did at Rangers.

Renaming a stand such as the Copland in honor of Walter Smith would be a nice tribute but I would also like a statue as he optimizes Rangers in the modern era. A statue at the Copland would be nice, with some sort of feature lighting so that it is a focal point at the night time games as you approach the Copland towards the club shop.

Mentioned this in the main thread - I think it would be ideal if we are building a testament to our greatest achievements that we name it after one of our greatest servants.

 

I think that would be a fantastic idea. :thumbup:
