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

I'm on the last London train home which is 5.40pm this Saturday. Will I be able to do that without becoming part of the subway loyal?
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.

I've done this dozens of times for 3.00 Saturday kick-offs and never come close to missing the 5.40 train.

If you miss it..as long as it's an open ticket..there is a 1840..change at wolves..gets in at 10.23.

This thread is slightly crazy in that nobody walks 3 miles in the exact same time

To the OP - some of the replies are people being smart without doubt trying to make you miss your train . Nobody can do it in 20 minutes , that’s a fact . A moderately good runner takes roughly nine or ten minutes per mile .

Even if you left Ibrox in silk shorts a vest and spikes and ran full pelt it would take 30 minutes .

Nobody’s asked how long your legs are , levels of fitness , etc . Bad weather and crowds play a part .

Go with the advice given from people who get the sane train as you - they’ve said ensure you leave bang on 90 mins if not just before , walk to the subway get off at st Enoch and walk 5 mins to central . Only other option is walk to SECC and get the train direct to central but again involves a decent walk at quick pace .

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.

That would probably take longer immediately after kick off tbf.

Leave the game early mate, otherwise you will struggle to get your train. That is the only answer you need for this particular Saturday .:)

30-40 minutes depending on weather, your own pace, crowds etc. You should make the train home with plenty to spare.

I'm already looking forward to the live updates. Strains, sweat stains and no lift from Michael Beale.

Here's hoping he doesn't miss the train coming up from London.

there's not a chance people are doing this in 20 minutes. its a good 35-40 mins.

with us playing Livi if we are winning with a good couple of goals no harm in leaving a wee bit early. getting caught with the crowd slows ye down

If you've done it God knows how many times,you'll have an idea of how long it takes ffs :)) .

Couple of good suggestions,ie pre paid ticket so no queue I assume,personally I'd go to Govan Subway,the train is empty there, but a few other good suggestions.

I'm sure the last time you and I walked it,it was under half an hour but that was about 15 years ago and you might be carrying some extra timber now ;)

Some additional advice might be don't go on to Edmiston Dr in the direction of PRW. The parked Poileas vans back people up. If it were me, I'd head down the hill past the subway queue and head for Pacific Drive.

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.

And the trains aren't rammed to the rafters with Bears who got on at Ibrox?

Baffles me this one
