The Rangers women missed out on a place in the Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL) Cup Final after a semi-final humbling by Glasgow City.
The Gers Women were beaten 5-1 at Broadwood Stadium in Cumbernauld as the Gers ladies struggled to compete with the current SWPL champions.

Glasgow City are also the current league leaders and showed why with this humbling result. Rangers were 4-1 down by halftime as Scotland’s Premier female side proved their quality.
A Nicola Docherty brace within 18 minutes looked to have Rangers up against it. But it wasn’t to stop there.
Kirsty Howat added a third just under nine minutes later before Clare Shine all but killed off Rangers hopes. That was before Caitlin O’Hara pulled one back right on halftime.
But it couldn’t inspire a Rangers comeback and Leanne Ross killed off any faint hopes seven minutes after the restart. The game would finish 5-1 and means Rangers miss out on the chance to win SWPL Cup silverware this season.
Despite not picking up silverware, it’s been a good season for the Rangers women off the pitch.
The club became the first in the country to offer Modern Apprenticeships to female players and it’s the first year the club have awarded the Rangers Women’s Player of the Year award.
