Rangers Women head coach Malky Thomson is pleased to see his side get their rewards for their hard work in training as he praised their performance in the 3-0 SWPL Cup win over Hamilton.

A double from Lisa Martinez and Megan Bell’s goal sealed the three points for the Gers and Thomson thinks his players have been “fantastic” in getting behind the “programme” at the club.

With the Women’s side following the blueprint of the men’s first-team, Thomson is excited by their progress in the club’s first season as a professional female side.

“Every training session we look to layer the sessions and I think you can see there we had total domination of the ball, the speed of play was better and we were trying to shift the ball about the back a lot quicker and playing through the third so it has been really pleasing to see them getting the rewards,” Thomson told Rangers TV.

“I think we have a real positive mood in the group. The club have been fantastic with the lengths they have gone to in backing the whole programme is great.

“Everything from pre-match, to using the auditorium the same as the first team guys are doing. Everything to do with that process is definitely showing on the park.”

The Gers have won both games in the competition so far and look set to take their place in the quarter-final draw.

After a winning start to the league as well it’s been a solid beginning to life as a professional outfit for the Rangers Women’s side.

Hopefully, they can continue to impress and get their hands on some silverware this season and show the men’s side how it is done.
