The stadium was opened for greyhound racing in April 1928 on the Paisley Road, Ibrox. It continued to run greyhound racing alongside Speedway which was the original home for the Glasgow Tigers team. The stadium closed in April 1972 and was demolished to make way for the M8. Govan Police Station now stands here.
