Sir Andy Murray bronze statue could go up in Dunblane
Stirling councillors to discuss plans to celebrate the tennis ace and his brother, Jamie.
A bronze statue of tennis ace Sir Andy Murray could be erected in his home town.
Stirling politicians will discuss the proposal to immortalise Murray and his brother Jamie in Dunblane, who was knighted in the New Year's Honours list.
Supporters say the Murray brothers deserve the honour in celebration of their achievements.
The double Wimbledon champion finished 2016 as world number one for the first time, with a winning run of 24 matches and a fifth straight title.
He also picked up a gold medal at the Rio Olympics and reached the final of the Australian Open and French Open.
Brother Jamie ended the year in the world number one doubles partnership with Bruno Soares after the pair won the Australian Open and US Open.
The brothers were also part of Team GB when they lifted the Davis Cup in 2015.
Stirling Provost Mike Robbins will put the idea to the council's civic committee on January 24.
He said: "No plans have yet been put in place and any proposals would first involve consultations with local residents.
"I am aware that there is a desire in some parts of the Dunblane community to have a statue or tribute to celebrate the Murray brothers' achievements in the town, and will add this to the agenda at the next civic committee in a few weeks' time so that initial discussions can take place."
A Dunblane statue would not be the first for Sir Andy Murray, who was honoured with a terracotta warrior statue in Shanghai after he won the 2010 Rolex Masters.
In 2012, a postbox in Dunblane was painted gold to mark Murray's win over Roger Federer at the London Olympics.
A spokeswoman for Tennis Scotland said: "Sir Andy is arguably Scotland's greatest ever sportsperson.
"We'd certainly be in favour an honour such as this, although we feel it's his on court achievements that will have the greatest impact on what we all want, namely growing the tennis community in Scotland."
