In 1938 King George VI, along with Queen Elizabeth opened the Empire Exhibition at Ibrox, Glasgow.
There was an attendance of over 146,000 people and every Commonwealth Country was represented, except India and Cylon, both of whom were wishing to govern themselves.
This year marks the 85th anniversary of that momentous occasion, so it was fitting that representatives from the Republic of India were back in Glasgow on Ibrox soil to discuss the increase of trade between India and the United Kingdom with the India Council of Scotland and Together UK Foundation.
Together UK Foundation were delighted to be invited to an early evening reception at Ibrox hosted by Shri Raja Kumar Karri and Shri Vahidulla Shariff Mohammed, representing the India states of Telegana and Andhra Pradesh respectively.
Rangers FC have recently announced a new strategic and commercial partnership with the ‘All India Football Association’, the governing body of Indian Football and it was six months ago in December that Bala Devi, a woman footballer from Manipur became the first Indian woman player to score in a professional football league in Europe by netting for the Rangers against Motherwell.
