The buildings are located on the corner of Copland Road and Mafekin Street, and the application form states one of the units is a former Ladbrokes store. It also reveals the proposed ‘change of use to the public bar’ would have no cooking facilities on site.

Arfield, who left Rangers at the end of the season following the expiry of his contract after five years at the club, will have to wait until July 31 to hear whether the council will grant or refuse the plans.

Meanwhile, a popular Glasgow city centre Rangers pub have announced plans to hold a Tina Turner tribute night in memory of the ‘Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ who died last month at the age of 83.

Event organisers Oswald’s Bar confirmed the special one-off night will take place on Friday, July 28 with all proceeds raised going to MND charity. Tickets are priced at £10.

“There will be raffles, auctions and competitions to raise as much as we can for MND Scotland. Tickets are available by clicking the link. You’d be off your Nutbush to miss this amazing night ahead.”
