Angie Hind has left her post as the SFA’s assistant national coach to head up the club’s Women’s side.
The appointment is seen as a major coup for the club as it seeks to improve its fortunes in the women’s game.
For the incoming coach there is plenty of reason to be positive with significant success achieved at youth level in the girls’ squads last season.
The club’s under-15 team earned a treble in the last campaign while the under-17 side clinched the league title too.
The challenge now for Hind is to see that success transformed in to similar results at a more senior level, where Glasgow City have until now set the benchmark.
Hind brings with her a wealth of playing and coaching experience having spent six years as head coach of an Ivy League school in the USA before her two year stint as assistant coach with Scotland.
However the incoming coach insists it is the resources already in place at Ibrox that make the challenge she faces an exciting one for her.
She said: “I think it’s an exciting time because the club has a tremendous youth structure and a lot of very talented young players.
“The challenge has always been to get a successful women’s side in the Premier League and for me that challenge in attractive.
“The opportunity to work with a club that has aspirations which match my own is exciting. I’ve been very impressed by the support and the resources that the club wants to bring forward for the women’s game.
“I’m going to try to bring the players along and to build a staff structure so that we have something that is really sustainable.
“That’s the key aspect. It would be one thing to bring in some players and shoot for a quick fix but that’s not the answer.
“We want to make Rangers a club that is going to be successful and remain successful in the future.”
