Rangers Staff Member Sacked After Ibrox Delay Forces Season Opener Relocation

Rangers Football Club is in a state of disarray after it was revealed a senior staff member has been sacked due to delayed construction works at Ibrox Stadium.

According to Daily Record journalist Andy Newport, the planned improvements to the disabled section in the Copland Road Stand have overrun, forcing the club to vacate Ibrox for the first month of the 2024/25 season. This news has reportedly left the Rangers board “hugely angered” and resulted in a staff member being dismissed.

The club is now scrambling to find an alternative venue for the beginning of their campaign. Many are questioning how such a crucial project could have resulted in such a significant disruption.

The ramifications of the Ibrox closure are significant. Rangers will be forced to play their opening Champions League qualifying matches away from home, losing out on the crucial home advantage traditionally provided by their passionate fans. Additionally, the club is set to miss out on a substantial amount of revenue from ticket sales and concessions during the displaced home games.
