Bring back the Bears pakora.
the fact Elior were happy to pay 4m a year for the catering and cleaning suggests it is worth the bother.Is it worth the bother for 15 minutes at HT if you really need chips and a burger they'res plenty vans around the stadium.
Think it's really about being able to give more to the club while receiving better the borstal quality at a fair price. You are correct in what you say but why should these vans get our blue pound for more unhealthy and expensive rubbishIs it worth the bother for 15 minutes at HT if you really need chips and a burger they'res plenty vans around the stadium.
Years ago I got a yahoo in work going tonto when we were discussing bears pakora and blue nose burgers etc in the bothay . He actually believed me when I said we sold “ Protestant Pepsi “ , said we are a disgrace and stormed away . Incredible . This was 20 years ago . I think he still believes it !For years a tim I worked with couldn't believe we called pakora that,
I also convinced him that up in the club deck we also sold 'No Surrender' Chicken fried rice.
fantastic post and sums up my feelings. I go to a lot of mls and nba games and I always come away with the feeling that Rangers match day experience is a joke and it’s purely through laziness and not giving a toss about the ‘ customers’.To people saying “ what do we expect from concourse catering , stop moaning about it “ , it’s as if we are expected to still live in caves according to some .
I had relatives over from Canada four years ago and took them to a game at Ibrox . They were so excited to go but to cut a long story short despite their polite demeanour afterwards I know for a fact they were utterly let down and appalled by the experience ( didn’t help we drew 0/0 and it rained all day ) .
I put this down to both their false high expectations ( hadn’t been to Ibrox since 1980s) with nostalgic and blue tinted specs hoped for a better matchday experience . They asked what the portakabins were for , looked horrified at the basic “ catering “ on offer , and let down by lack of any atmosphere or fan involvement . Talk about a damp squib.
What people who only attend Scottish football need to come to terms with is the rest of the world have moved on . My Canadian relatives go to ice hockey now and get ice cold beers and food from a menu delivered to their seats at games . There are massive parking facilities and on site entertainment for whole families . People are made to feel welcome and involved in clean, modern facilities. The matchday announcer actively encourages fans to join in .
Now imagine going from that , to a rainy Ibrox with barbed wire surrounding Grey portakabins to collect tickets , toilets stinking of 40 years worth of crystallised urine and regal king size smoke, then queue to pay a fortune for a brick hard molten hot pie and watered down coke served by grumpy teenagers in bobbled red jumpers 4 sizes too big for them . A matchday DJ who is too lazy to read out subs never mind encourage singing or fan engagement . You get the picture . And Ibrox is by far the BEST in Scotland ! Think on that .
We are stuck in our ways and thankfully the new board and marketing guys we have seem to have a handle on the fact in 2020 people simply will not put up with such crappy facilities for much longer . Football in other countries have caught up and overtook Scotland on and off the pitch and has left us in their rear view mirror for the most part . We need dragged kicking and screaming into realising it’s meant to be an entertainment , where we welcome fans willing to spend time and money in and around the ground . Otherwise we lose passing the baton on to future generations .
Apologies for the long post but I feel strongly about this subject . Rangers have been pioneers in Scottish terms in the past and it’s time to be so again . Let’s lead the way and let the others try and keep up with us .
He did mention that the club will ensure that their offerings will improve.fantastic post and sums up my feelings.

it’s 2020 yet you still can’t buy anything remotely healthy at the ground as the club have us all down as beer swirling blokes who will be happy with a pie and bovril. I am hopeful that James bisgrove will improve things although I have my doubts if we have entered into another contract with elior/ azure
Argyle House restaurant will be replaced by The Blue Sky Lounge. As fantastic as the view is up there it’s very dated. The pictures of the hospitality area looked impressive and far more modern.Can anyone confirm the future plans for a restaurant/Argyle House restaurant?
I was informed that with the introduction of the Blue Sky lounge that the Argyle House restaurant would effectively be no more.
I was surprised at that given the standard of it and how beloved it is by the support who have been there and I would have taken the info with a pinch of salt if it hadn’t come from someone who knows(or should) about these plans.
Can anyone shed any light? I really would have thought that given Bisgroves gushing praise of how the BS Lounge will eventually look that it would have been a perfect place to situate the restaurant.

I find it difficult to believe just how rank this food is & can't imagine many other establishments tolerating such a piss poor productElior are one of the biggest catering chains in Europe and the fourth largest in the world, making over €5b a year, they definitely offer quality food packages. What we will get at the stadium will be down to the package we have with them.
