Rangers to turn roof of training HQ into advertising billboard
In an effort to raise cash, Rangers chief executive Charles Green is considering turning the roof of the clubs £41 million Murray Park headquarters into a giant advertising billboard.
Green is reported to have said that firms will be keen to buy the space as it can be seen from planes arriving and departing from Glasgow airport, giving advertisers a potential audience of 20,000 people a day – the number of passengers who fly to and from the city.
A club insider told the Daily Record that: “We’re trying to think outside of the box and come up with new ways of generating money.
“Basically, if it makes the club money, Charles Green will look at it.
“Everyone thinks this idea is a good one and there is no real downside.
“It’s not been decided whether it will be club sponsors only or if he will open it up to anyone who wants the space.”
The idea could be pitched to brands such as the club’s shirt sponsor Tennent’s and SportsDirect, who are owned by Ibrox investor Mike Ashley.
