Article: Parkhead and Ibrox locals ‘should be consulted’ on matchday disruption

Residents living near Ibrox and Parkhead should be consulted on how matches affect their lives, according to a senior Labour councillor.

He admitted some events“can and should” be managed better, and has called for community consultations like that held for Bellahouston Park’s Summer Sessions to be held for all large events in Glasgow.
