I'm on that train back to London virtually every time I go to Ibrox. I leave on the final whistle, or a minute or two before if we're 2 or 3 goals up, walk briskly to Cessnock Underground, get the first train back to St Enoch's, and generally still have 20 to 25 minutes to get food and bevy for the train at the Sainsburys Local opposite Central, before a leisurely stroll to platform 2 for the train.
That would probably take longer immediately after kick off tbf.Get to the Village Hotel and ask reception to order you a Hackney. They did this for me after Progres (albeit at about half ten/a pint when crowds had died down a little) and the car was there in less than a minute.
The advice above of someone experienced at this seems your best bet though.
If you've done it God knows how many times,you'll have an idea of how long it takes ffs .Phuck..............I’ll use a massive ellipsis now and just run like phuck then. I always walk it, done it god knows how many times but I’ve avoided the 17.40 and just stayed over, so I’ve never had to think about it. Put it this way, come Saturday I’ll be able to offer my own perspective
And the trains aren't rammed to the rafters with Bears who got on at Ibrox?To add my tuppence worth to an already ridiculously long thread i usually leave west enclosure bang on full time, run/quick walk to Cessnock and am in Queen St station well in time for the 5.15 train home.
