You're sooo right. And from above, the look even more similiar...




It would seem that the only similiarity is that they have blue seats. I mean, does Ibrox also look like Tynecastle? It is, virtually, a mini-scale Ewood Park with dark red seats. Right down to the falling-apart-old-main-stand...




And while we are at it, under your thesis, the most modern stadia look exactly the same from the inside - City of Manchester, New Wembley, Emirates, Da Luz, New Lansdowne Road and just about any other stadia that have one of those wavy top tiers.

Great reasoning, and I salute you for it.

Another expansion going on at Ibrox is support for right wing extremism and racism. Looks like sales for the BNP newspaper is on the rise amongst Rangers fans.

Quote:
Nine Glasgow activists took part in the monthly paper sale at Ibrox Stadium on Saturday (19th August) recording their highest sales figures so far this year.

300 copies of the current edition of Voice of Freedom were sold at two of the approaches to the football ground, despite a concerted effort by 15 (yes fifteen!) Strathclyde Police Officers to end activity.

Standing at their traditional pitches, the team entice punters with calls such as “Buy your Voice of Freedom, the voice of the BNP” and “Get your BNP newspaper, only 60 pence.”

Mid way through Saturday’s activity the Police arrived telling the two teams to move on as they had had a complaint. The Officers refused to explain the nature of the complaint only repeating their orders to move or face arrest.

Know your rights

The BNP team stood their ground and explained that under “the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, Article 10, Section 1. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority regardless of frontiers.”

They also explained that “political organisations do not require local authority consent to sell or distribute literature on the streets and that they were not selling anything other than the newspaper.”

At one point, one of the sales teams had 15 officers surround them, half a dozen on motorcycles. One officer in particular seemed more persistent than the rest but gradually their number dissipated as our brave team continued to call out and ring up the sales.

BNP policies back the Police

Nobody was cautioned or arrested as commonsense seemed to prevail. Some of the activists were disappointed by the actions of some of these police officers as the BNP is recognised by most rank and file coppers to be supportive of the police and with policies that would help them do the job they signed up to do.

Political ambition may be the driving force for some officers but the BNP also aim to make political gains and no amount intimidation of this nature will dissuade us on our quest. Activist around the country should note the above statements to ward of any further underhanded attempts to stop us going about our legal business.

Glasgow BNP have been selling papers at Ibrox since the 1980’s and are on course to break all their sales records this season. After the last paper sale local Organiser Walter Hamilton was forced to up the monthly order. After Saturday, he has had to do so again to met the demand not just from Ibrox, but also from the monthly Activists Meetings.

Is that how Celtic fans justify signing about the IRA every other week?

Hope they reclad the outside of the Govan,Copland road and Broomlon Road when they start to redevelop the area outside ibrox with that shiny new casino and new executive apartments and sport complex the flats area between endminson drive and paisley road west has really got bad scince it was cleared and waiting demolishion could you post the redevelopment pics when you get the chance to go with the ones you just posted make a nice contrast. Thanx

P.s you could also post the finished pics of the ibrox Buiness park that sits in the fore ground of most of your pics showing the broomlon Road stand.

The back and forth between Celtic and Rangers fans is exactly the reason that the English don't want them in the Premiership. Man Utd/Liverpool, Arsenal/Spurs, Sunderland/Newcastle, etc., are all big rivalries, but at the end of the day most of the banter seems to be based around humour rather than complete hatrid. Calm it down and accept that both of them are terrific football stadiums in a pretty run down area of a city that's been sh*t on by the government for the duration of living memory.

Think you shall find that most of the time it is mostley friendly its just when you get ideots puting spin on things eg the red hand salute as nazi it angers upsets normal fans and you arent going to let your club and fellowsupporters be seen in a mislead light. yes there are nuters on both sides but its the same at every club. The guy posting these pictures has no intrest in this board he is just got an anti Rangers chip on his shoulder. I tryed to point out some facts thats all.

asdfg did not post one bad picture of Ibrox Stadium though. If those are the worst he could find, then he must really be in awe, as there are thousands of pictures highlighting the complete shambles that is Celtic Park.

asdfg you're an embarrassment son.

Ibrox Stadium appears to be getting rebuilt. New 70000 capacity.

Completely knocked down and rebuilt (only the red brick facade on the Main stand will remain). The new capacity shall be 70000. From the Official club website -

Thanks for that mate I put a post in the Glasgow room. I first read it of the Rangers fan site the Gers Forum if anyone has any Blue Prints or anything about the new stadium if you post them it would be great.

I wonder whether this will force Celtic into expansion plans?

£700million, that's quite expensive
Glad to see the red brick facade will stay, it looks very beautiful.
