“Glasgow City is not just a team, but it’s a family. The first day I arrived here I instantly felt at home.

“Everyone cares about you as a player but also as a human being. I cannot thank this club enough for everything it has done for me. The opportunities, the experiences, the highs and even the lows.

“All of these experiences have been great development for me. I am honoured to have represented this football club.

“I would like to say thanks to all players, coaching staff, board and all other members of staff that have played a role in my time at the club. #OCAC"


Leanne Ross on Linda Motlhalo, and her impact at the club:

“Linda made a huge impact on and off the pitch during her short time here at Glasgow City.

“Her infectious personality saw her become a popular figure in the dressing room and her performances on the pitch, including that assist for the title winning goal last season, were a joy to watch.

“For someone so talented, a more humble and hardworking professional you will struggle to find. Although it’s sad to see her move on, we are grateful to have played a part in Linda’s development and wish her nothing but success in the next stage in her career.”
