CASTORE founder Tom Beahon has told fans he hopes to reopen another Rangers store at Glasgow Airport.
The Gers Airport store was closed several years ago after opening in 2013.
But after signing a five-year contract with the Ibrox club, Castore Beahon’s man insists he wants to see a club shop at the airport.
Speaking on FollowFollow.com, he said, “Regarding the Rangers stores, I totally agree with what you just said.
“I mean, more than 13 stores in the past, the demand is clearly there for that.
“Now, I think there is a balance here between a business decision, so how many stores are commercially eligible?” These stores have to make money, they have to be at the right rents in the right places.
“But there is also an element of competitive instinct.
“And I guess what I mean by that is, if Celtic has a store at Glasgow Airport, this football club must have a store at Glasgow Airport.
“I’m going to have or someone from my business have to have a conversation with the owners who rent these stores and it’s a business consideration but it’s something I want to see.
“Because I don’t want fans from around the world to watch Ibrox games and not be able to see a Rangers store at the airport when they come in or go out.
“And that, to some extent, is a matter of pride. There are other places in Belfast, I suppose, most obviously, where this football club should have stores and there is no reason why it should be allowed to expire in recent years.
“So there are some things that I think we can probably do fairly quickly.

“Again, the world is a funny place right now, so I don’t want to make too many hard commitments.
“In terms of the total number of stores, we think between five and 10 for Rangers stores only, but the final number will be dictated by the direction of the rental market in the next 12-18 / 24 months. “
