Ramsay to finally get his ‘name in lights’ at Ibrox
Gordon Ramsay has teamed up with his beloved Rangers FC to launch a new hospitality lounge at the world-famous Ibrox Stadium.
‘Menu by Gordon Ramsay’ will feature a range of seasonal produce chosen by the celebrity chef to “offer a world-class dining experience” to visitors to the club’s newly-opened Blue Sky Lounge restaurant. Ramsay was born and raised in Johnstone, a town ten miles west of Ibrox, and his dream as a child growing up was to one day play for Rangers after his uncle Roland took him to his first game, aged seven.
Even after he moved south to England aged nine, he saw that dream come close to reality when he earned trial at the club as a teenager, but a recurrent knee injury put paid to any thoughts of realising his ambition to play professionally at the club.
“From a very young age I dreamt about having my name up in lights at Ibrox,” said Ramsay. “Whilst my football career may have ended prematurely, I’m proud and delighted to have partnered with the Rangers team to develop an exclusive menu for the iconic stadium.
“‘Menu by Gordon Ramsay’ features a stunning menu of seasonal produce and stand-out dishes, all personally chosen by myself to offer a world-class dining experience at the home of Scottish football.”
The new venture will start next season (August) with further details released closer to the official opening of ‘Menu by Gordon Ramsay’.
