RANGERS Football Club are pleased to announce that defender Emma Brownlie has signed an 18-month contract extension.

Brownlie, who joined the club in September, has committed her future to Rangers until Summer 2021.

The 26-year-old defender slotted into the back four for the second-half of last season after becoming one of Gregory Vignal’s first signings as manager.

She has previously played for Hibs, Celtic and had a spell down south with Everton.

Women’s and Girls Football manager Amy McDonald said: “We’re delighted to be able to announce that Emma has extended her stay with the club.

“Last season, she brought a level of maturity to the squad that was invaluable to the club. She is very hard working and committed and is a pleasure to have around both on and off the pitch.

“We know she understands the level of expectation at Rangers from her experience of the club last season, and we’re delighted to have her with us.”
