For more than 100 years, Ibrox has been the home of Rangers Football Club. It has been the scene of some of this sporting institution's greatest triumphs but also two of the worst disasters in British football. This is its story.

Ibrox is an imposing ground that is rich with history and tradition, while boasting state-of-the-art modern facilities that rank alongside the best in the world.

Its wood-panelled entrance lobby and famous marble staircase evoke memories of a distant era, while the glittering trophy room inside the magnificent Main Stand tells the story of the club better than any words can.

This book charts, in words and pictures, the history of Ibrox, from the early days, through the creation of Archibald Leitch's stunning Main Stand in 1929, with its Masonic imagery, to the present-day five-star facilities.

As well as the many football triumphs, the stadium has witnessed dozens of other events over the years, including the famous annual Ibrox Sports meeting created by the legendary manager Bill Struth.
