This was a day that many have been waiting for.
With hospitality venues struggling due to the pandemic over the last year, the strain has been felt more than most, in Glasgow, with Nicola Sturgeon’s prolonged prohibition on alcohol service indoors.
Finally today, a small taste of freedom returned with the pubs and bars allowed to welcome the punters indoors for he first time in nine months as Glasgow dropped to Level 2 on Scotland’s system.
Owners, staff and customers alike have rejoiced and that has been clear across several establishments within the Rangers family.
Today, on social media the likes of The Louden Tavern – Ibrox, The Grapes Bar and Oswalds were very happy to be able to welcome customers inside and to throw the doors open once again.
Walk ins welcome, open both indoors and our beer garden.
Five minutes on the subway from city centre.

In the city centre, it was Oswald’s who marked re-opening day in some style.
Old Rangers favourites Alex Rae and Marvin Andrew were on hand to cut the ribbons.
Amongst the fanfare, there was confetti, fireworks and some blue smoke get the party started…or rather to keep it going, given the last few weeks of joy across the Rangers fanbase.
Best wishes to all Rangers pubs reopening in Glasgow this weekend as well as the others, elsewhere throughout Scotland and the UK.
Oswalds is now officially open…..
