Rangers owner Dave King has revealed that Rangers have spent a hefty sum of money in upgrading Ibrox.

The owner also revealed at the AGM, as reported by The Scotsman, that plans are in place to redevelop the area around the stadium to make matchdays a better experience.

He said: “A lot of the work we’ve done over the last couple of years has not rightly been termed ‘improvements’.

“I think what we’ve done is refurbishing and repairing a stadium that had become dilapidated to get it back to being fit for purpose and something Rangers fans should be proud of.

“We’ve got some very ambitious plans, both on our own and for project 2022. We’re looking at complete improvement and refurb of the surrounds of the ground and really redeveloping the stadium completely.

“That would be a very, very significant improvement in terms of the matchday experience for fans.”

To matters on the park, Rangers have the chance to leapfrog Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership table, if they defeat the Dons at Pittodrie on Sunday.

The ‘Gers moved to within three points of Aberdeen following their 3-0 defeat of them at Ibrox last night. Two goals from James Tavernier and one from Carlos Pena gave Rangers their best result of the season so far.

Graeme Murty is set to take charge of the game, with Rangers still to appoint a permanent manager following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha in October.

Murty has had indifferent results since becoming interim manager, winning his first two games in charge then losing his next two, but last night’s win was his best result by far.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has long been considered the favourite to become the next permanent manager at Ibrox, last night’s result may yet change that.
