The Opposition:

Rangers won their first ever honour last season when they clinched the SWPL title and have started their defence of the title strongly.

Moving it to Broadwood Stadium this season, Rangers also had their first taste of European football when they beat Ferencvaros and PAOK before missing out on the group stage after an extra time defeat in Portugal to Benfica.

The Gers have strengthened their squad with the signings of Colette Cavanagh from Hibernian and New Zealand goalkeeper, Victoria Esson.

Previous Meetings:

Glasgow City and Rangers met three times last season with Rangers winning once and the other two matches ending in draws.

The only game at Petershill Park saw City come from behind to take a point courtesy of a Niamh Farrelly header in an enthralling one all draw.

The two meetings in 2022 saw Rangers win 3-1 in February before a goalless draw in May at the Rangers Training Centre.

Form Guide:

Rangers have a 100% record in the SWPL this season with nine wins from nine. Their only defeats in any competition this season were against Benfica in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Last time out, Rangers booked a place in their first ever Sky Sports Cup final with a 4-0 victory away at Spartans.

Glasgow City have also won every match in the SWPL this season but sit behind Rangers on goal difference having moved up from third place in the last league match thanks to victory over Celtic.

City’s last match saw us exit the Sky Sports Cup with defeat against Hibernian.
