RANGERS were beaten 4-0 by Glasgow City at The Hummel Training Centre this afternoon.

Gregory Vignal handed debuts to his two new signings Lisa Martinez and Daina Bourma for the SWPL 1 game.

Glasgow City had the lead after 13 minutes as a corner was swung in with McSorely’s header and Sinclair’s shot blocked for the visitors before the rebound fell to Leanne Crichton who fired into the back of the net.

City doubled their lead on the 19th minute as Crichton had her second of the game as she got on the end of a free-kick which was swung into the box by Hayley Lauder.

Rangers were passing the ball about well at times during the first-half but failed to test the Glasgow City goal.

Brogan Hay went on a good run midway through the first half as she made ground into the Glasgow City half before finding new signing Daina Bourma in space on the left. Bourma drilled a low cross into the box but it couldn’t find the feet of a Rangers player and was cleared by the visitors.

Glasgow City had a third with five minutes remaining of the first half as Hayley Sinclair got on the end of a cross from Leanne Ross to turn and get her shot away into the bottom corner.

Rangers had their first shot on goal just before the break as Clare Gemmell set up Brogan Hay but her effort took a deflection on its route to goal and was saved comfortably by the keeper.

There was a fourth for City on the stroke of half-time as Kirsty Howart lobbed the ball over Baillie and into the back of the net from around 25-yards-out.

Glasgow City came close early in the second half as Jade Baillie saved a close range shot from Hayley Sinclair.

Shortly after, Kirsty Howat played a long ball forward to Hayley Lauder, but her shot was saved by Jade Baillie.

Rosie Mcquillan had an effort on the 65th minute as she drilled a powerful effort towards goal from outside the box but it was saved by the Glasgow City goalkeeper.

Clare Gemmell had the ball in the net for Rangers on the 72nd minute as she headed home a good ball from Chelsie Watson but the linesman had his flag up and ruled the goal offside.

Rangers: Baillie, Dalgliesh (Honeyman, 81), Watson, Martinez (L.Gallon, 73), Bourma (Macdonald, 55), O’Hara, Gemmell, Napier (Campbell, 65), Hay (Cameron, 71), Mcquillan, McCartney.
