Ibrox among Scottish stadiums left damaged by Storm Isha

The Govan stadium was left partially damaged as Storm Isha wreaked havoc across the country.

Rangers’ Ibrox stadium is among the Scottish football stadiums which have been left damaged by Storm Isha.

Football stadiums up and down Scotland were battered by extreme winds overnight as the weather wreaked havoc across the country.

Ibrox was no exception, as pictures taken by STV News on Monday show sections of the Govan stadium have been left destroyed by the wild weather.

A section of the Broomloan Road stand, which has a blue banner with the club’s name and badge, could be seen ripped up – leaving a large gap.

A ‘Welcome to Ibrox’ sign and another sign depicting several first team stars was blown over during the strong winds.

However, Ibrox wasn’t the only Glasgow stadium left damaged by the wild weather.

Glasgow United were left without a roof.

West of Scotland side Glasgow United revealed home ground Greenfield Park took a “sizeable amount of damage” – with pictures indicating that the stadium’s roof had blown off.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, Glasgow United FC said: “The club today devastated to destruction caused by last nights storm that caused a sizeable amount of damage taking the roof off our changing room building and causing parts of the pitch to be ripped up by fly metal roof parts.

“This will have substantial impact on the club.”

It comes after the Met Office issued a rare red “danger to life” warning for the north of Scotland late on Sunday.

The roof was later located.
