RANGERS welcome Hibernian to Benburb on Sunday to round off the first half of the Scottish Building Society SWPL before Scotland embarks on an exciting summer of football.

Back in the side after an early season injury the forward Sarah Robertson knows the dangers that the visitors will pose but wants to see her side end the first half of the season on a high.

Robertson said: “We’re looking forward to it, it is another massive game and will be a tough test but we’re excited.

“We’ll get back into training and prepare for that the way we do every game.

“We’ll play are own game and prepare like we always do, we’ll look to get the ball down and get our players on the ball going forward but it is going to be a tough one.”

Rangers currently occupy fourth in the league table after a mixed bag of results but with a game in hand and only six points behind second spot, Robertson thinks that a positive end to the first half will spur the side on the have a more consistent results when the league returns in August.

She said: “We’ll be trying to end the season on a high, it’s been a bit inconsistent this half of the season.

“We’ve played well in spells but we just need to get that level of consistency again so it would be a great to end the season with a win.”

As the league winds down for the break, excitement remains in Scotland with two major tournaments on the horizon.

The Scottish Women’s National Team fly off to France for their first ever FIFA Women’s World Cup finals and Scotland hosts the Women’s U19 EURO.

Nicola Docherty, Lana Clelland and Erin Cuthbert came through the ranks at Rangers and will represent Scotland on the biggest stage while Rangers’ very own Amy Muir will captain Scotland at U19 level.

With the tournaments fast approaching, Robertson believes that the domestic game can reap the rewards.

She said:

“It’s a great boost for women’s football, it’s getting so close now, I think the whole of Scotland are just really excited to see the player in action.

“Erin Cuthbert has been performing in the Champions League and doing amazing for Chelsea just now, so she’ll be definitely one to watch.”
