Rangers have announced that their women’s side will be fully integrated with the men’s team at Ibrox and the news has gone down well with the supporters.

The move now means some of the players already at the club can step up and become professional thanks to the added investment as well as allowing the squad to use the facilities available to the men’s side. Director of Football Mark Allen- who now sees women’s football fall under his remit– has said he’s ‘incredibly proud to be integrating the Women’s and Girls’ Programme at Rangers with the rest of the football department, creating a one club philosophy.’

The integration of the two side’s and their respective academies has meant that the women’s team can triple its allocation of full-time staff and the headline change sees Amy McDonald move from Head Coach to Women’s and Girls’ Football Manager with former Rangers, Dundee United and Liverpool defender Gregory Vignal come in as Head Coach, having worked as a coach in the men’s academy previously. The merging of the two side’s has gone down well with Rangers fans who hope it can be a start of a bright future for the whole club.
