Andy Goram’s ashes buried under Ibrox ground in private family service as Rangers hero gets his wish
Goram tragically passed away after a short battle with cancer last month and has now been buried at the Copland Road end of the stadium.
The family of Rangers legend Andy Goram buried his ashes under the Ibrox ground following a private ceremony.
The service took place hours before Rangers face Kilmarnock in their first home league game of the season after the club gave Goram’s son Danny permission to place his ashes in a specially created urn prepared under the lawn.

The ceremony was led by Rangers chaplain, the Reverend Stuart McQuarrie, and current first-team goalkeeper Allan McGregor was among those present, along with fellow stars Gordon Durie and Marvin Andrews.
Cloe’s friend Stan Gordon told the Daily Record: “We can’t thank Rangers enough for allowing this to happen. The support the club has given over the past two months has been tremendous.
“Rangers are a family club and what they have done for Andy proves it. The goalkeeper is now in the center of the Rangers goal line at his favorite end of the stadium.
“His ashes placed there have been a bit of an emotional roller coaster. It was a real mix of sadness and pride.
“His passing was heartbreaking, but we are so proud that Andy will now be at every home game with us and the rest of the Rangers support.”
Goram – voted by fans as the club’s greatest goalkeeper – won five league titles, three Scottish Cups and two League Cups during an illustrious seven-year spell at Rangers.
It is also believed that Rangers fans in Belfast are creating a bench in memory of Goram, who had a close connection with supporters in Northern Ireland.
It will be unveiled at the Shankill Road Memorial Gardens on Friday before the Shankill Rangers Supporters Club hold a fundraising evening for the hospice which treated the Scotland international in his final days.
