Former Rangers FC midfielder, Scott Arfield, is making a move off the pitch and into the hospitality industry, planning to launch a new pub in the heart of Glasgow’s footballing district.

Located at the junction of Copland Road and Mafekin Street, Arfield’s new venture is set to occupy two previously vacant units, a stone’s throw from the iconic Ibrox Stadium. One of these units was formerly home to a Ladbrokes store, lending the site a familiar taste of sportsmanship and competition.

With a focus on creating an inviting atmosphere for fellow football enthusiasts, the proposed pub aims to be a go-to destination for fans on match days. Interestingly, Arfield’s plans reveal that the pub will not feature a kitchen, promising a unique, drinks-focused experience. This “best places to watch football” approach targets those looking for an authentic pub environment in the vicinity of the legendary Rangers’ home ground​.

The Canadian international, who wore the #37 jersey for the Rangers, ended his successful five-year stint with the club at the close of the recent season. Known for his exceptional performances on the field, Arfield scored 5 goals in 31 appearances during the 2022-23 season​. Now, he aims to score big in Glasgow’s vibrant pub scene.

In a recent sighting, the charismatic Arfield was found serenading guests at a friend’s wedding, proving his versatile talents extend beyond the football field. This potential touch of celebrity charisma could be an added attraction for the upcoming pub.

The Glasgow City Council is expected to make a decision on Arfield’s application by July 31. As anticipation builds, local residents and Rangers fans eagerly await the unveiling of this new addition to Glasgow’s pub circuit.
