Rangers Football Club – Background
This is the stadium in Govan, southwest Glasgow in the old dock area, of one of Britain’s most famous football teams, Rangers FC. The team’s biggest rivals are Celtic. Rangers play in blue and Celtic in green and white.
The Ibrox building is domineering and massive, using red brick and generous amounts of glass blocks. Ibrox Stadium was originally built in 1899; the football ground now has a capacity of around 50,000 seats. The images showing a curved glass form are of a new section added to the ground over a decade ago.
