RANGERS TO INVEST £3M AT IBROX

Glasgow Rangers Football Club is investing £3million into their stadium to help improve the matchday fan experience.

The club plans to upgrade the food kiosks, TV screens and sound system at the venue and has hinted at further redevelopment in the future. It says many of the new upgrades are in response fans' feedback, including permanent tributes to the club's founders and victims of the 1971 Ibrox disaster.

Ali Russell, chief operating officer said: "Ibrox is a traditional, elite football stadium and we have worked throughout the summer to upgrade a number of key areas with the sole intention of enhancing the matchday experience for our supporters. Rangers supporters deserve a winning team on the park and a top class environment to enjoy their football and we aim to deliver both in Season 2011/12 and beyond."

Rangers, won the SPL Family Champions Award last season, has also invested in the family section of the Broomloan Stand and young supporters can now enjoy improved pre-match entertainment - which includes a matchday DJ, free face painting, prizes for children, special themed days and visits from club mascot Broxi Bear. The Family Section will also house a new family friendly toilet facility and the club is the only side in Scotland to offer this service.
