RANGERS Women’s professional set-up has taken further steps forward by taking on four new employees to boost the football department.

Women & Girls Football Manager Amy McDonald welcomes a new sports scientist, a dedicated kit co-ordinator, a Women and Girls Analyst and a Women and Girls goalkeeping coach.

The four will work full-time within the programme, giving the women’s team and girls’ academy players staff directly devoted to them.

It further reaffirms Rangers’ dedication to making the women’s game successful at the club, from senior level to academy age group levels.

Amy McDonald commented: “We are determined to create a professional environment which mirrors the men’s football department. Taking on four new employees in these roles moves us another step closer to that.

“We have started the season successfully and are on the right path on the pitch, now we can move into a new gear with this added resource off the pitch.

“The team are working in the best place they could be at the Rangers Training Centre, with first class facilitates and now have the staff around them to match that.

“We have previously had part-time employees working with us but now we can have staff in with the team full-time while the girls are training in the day.  That can only improve us and the standards we keep.”
