Rangers Football Club managing director Stewart Robertson has said the club is considering expanding its iconic Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow.

Speaking to local media, Robertson said the club had undertaken a feasibility study into adding thousands of extra seats, which could see the venue's capacity increased to 55,000.

The expansion would be the biggest project the club has undertaken on the venue for more than 20 years – since the stadium's corner stands were developed in the 1990s.

Robertson said the plans, which would not involve a new stand, but rather adding new rows of seats around the stadium, are necessary to cope with the increased demand for tickets.

“It’s something we’re looking at," he told media. "We won’t see anything as grand as another tier built on top of one of the existing stands."

Rangers spent four years out of the Scottish top flight of football after the club fell into liquidation in 2012.

Since returning to the Scottish Premiership in 2016, attendances for Rangers' home games have reached record levels. The average home attendance at the 50,130-capacity stadium during 2018-19 was 49,564.
