Thistle receives the backing of Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow Central

Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow Central has given Partick Thistle its backing after signing a sponsorship agreement.

The Port Dundas Road dealership, which opened in November last year following a £5m investment by parent company Vertu Motors plc, has agreed to sponsor the team until the end of the season.

As part of the arrangement, the eight-storey dealership has provided the team with four vehicles, a Nissan Juke, an X Trail and two Qashqais, for use by the manager, assistant manager, managing director and commercial manager.

Ian Maxwell, managing director, at Partick Thistle, said: “We’re very pleased to have the backing of Macklin Motors. The site has a prominent place close to the stadium and does a lot of work with organisations in the city, so it’s great to have partnered with the dealership.”

The team holds a special place in the heart of Robert Auld, general manager of Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow Central, son of Robert ‘Bertie’ Auld. He said: “Macklin Motors is always keen to show its support for the local community and local sport in particular. I think we can actually see their home ground, Firhill Stadium, from the top of our glass tower!”
