The club say that they want to turn an unused car park at Copland Road into a memorial garden which would have a wall, gates, fencing, public realm improvements and associated works.

The memorial garden would operate 8am to 8pm daily if the plans are given the go-ahead.


Drawings for the ambitious plans reveal that the club also want to have an Ibrox Disaster memorial within the garden.

A total of 66 lives were lost and more than 200 people were injured during the 1971 Ibrox disaster which was a crush among the crowd at an Old Firm game.


The plans also show there will be an interactive pod with an Android tablet and charging points for smartphone devices.

A decision for the plans is expected in March.
