Description:
For the Glasgow Subway station of the same name see Ibrox subway station.
'Ibrox railway station was a railway station in Ibrox, a district of Glasgow, Scotland. The station was originally part of the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway.

History

The station opened on 6 November 1843 and was known as Bellahouston.

Reopening

Calls have recently been made to reopen the station. In 2008 the Rangers Supporters Trust issued a statement calling for the station to be reopened. The suggestion was met with disinterest from officials, public and media as Ibrox stadium is already well served by public transport in the form of bus routes and subway. The calls were made after it had been announced that subway and rail links were to be extended into the East End in time for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The planned extensions would also serve Celtic Park. This led many to believe that the statement was reactionary rather than practical.
