Former Rangers defender Numan backs Ibrox name change

Arthur Numan believes it would be a wise business decision for Rangers to sell the naming rights to Ibrox.

The former ‘Gers defender is backing a possible £2.5million move which will see the famous venue change its name as he feels it will be of great benefit to the Glasgow club.

"If you mention Ibrox, everybody knows it's Rangers and if you mention Parkhead, everybody knows it's Celtic. But, nowadays, it's all down to the money," he said.

"If a big company knocks on the door and wants to spend a couple of million to change the name, it's very tempting for the chairman. I can imagine they would consider actually changing the name.

"I think they will look into everything, especially finance-wise.

"We know all about the problems of the last couple of years and that's the reason why they are now in the Third Division.

"We have seen it with Arsenal with the Emirates Stadium and the reason is the money.

"It's not because they like the name - it's because they are paid millions for it."
