Glasgow is a city that has a proud history that has produced many recognisable faces over the years that have brought joy to people’s lives.
They say that people make Glasgow but there is some particular folk who stand out from the rest which our audience believes deserves a little bit of extra recognition.
We asked our readers if they could add a new statue in George Square, who they would like to see honoured with over 400 people getting back to us to give their suggestions.
Take a look at our list of the most popular choices and let us know if we’ve missed anyone!
