Rangers have further invested in their women's team by sanctioning a move to semi-professional status.

Led by former Gers defender Gregory Vignal, the women's team have been making strides in the Scottish Women's Professional League in recent years.

The club previously confirmed their women's team would play all home games at the Hummel Training Centre.

But now extra funds have been pumped into the growth of their women's game.

This investment will see semi-professional athletes in the Rangers side who will be able to train and play on a more consistent, often basis.

Managing Director at Ibrox, Stewart Robertson, said: "This is an important day for our Women’s and Girls programme, not only at Rangers but for Scottish women’s football in general.

"We recently announced changes that brought our women’s players and coaches into our elite football environment and today we again show our commitment by confirming a further increased investment."
