Ibrox Main Stand Model Conserved

AN impressive 100-year-old model of the famous Ibrox Main Stand has been conserved by the club.

Designed by Archibald Leitch in the 1920’s, the model was made by the Glasgow-born architect after he was commissioned by Rangers FC to design the new stand. 

Over the past year, artefacts conservator, Will Murray, has been working on the model to bring it back to life, after it had been in storage for decades.

The iconic building is recognised throughout the world, and supporters will be able to enjoy the model in its best form when the club’s new museum is opened as part of the state-of-the-art New Edmiston House.

The model has been carefully cleaned and repaired to show the original details planned by Mr Leitch, prior to construction of the main stand in the late 1920s. 

Artefacts conservator Will Murray said: “I think people are going to be amazed to see it, and they will be very interested to compare it with what was actually built.

“They are going to see the concept that the designer provided and it was one of the first big proper stadium-stands in Britain at the time. 

“This model is an amazing survivor that is still here after 100 years but it certainly had been through the wars and needed a bit of TLC.” 

Rangers Museum Lotto helps raise valuable funds for the museum while offering supporters the chance to win a top prize of £2500 each week.
