Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson has pledged his support to a new campaign.
Women in football’s #GetOnside campaign will be supported by Rangers and over the next year, will celebrate the women who make the club.
Organisations such as the FA, ITV Sport, and Everton have all already got involved to take action for gender equality in the football industry.
This is an important issue and the more organisations that get involved, the better.

Robertson spoke to RangersTV about the newly established campaign and what it would mean for the women at the football club.
“It really shouldn’t matter what your gender is, what we want are the best people for each position at the club,” he said.
This is refreshing to hear from the managing director and with the Rangers women’s team moving into full-time professional football over the last few years, the onus is for the club to keep improving.
“We are probably a little bit embarrassed about where the women’s football team was historically, and not that historically either, it was something we badly had to do,” Robertson added.
“It is something we are still working to improve further as well, there’s still a long way to go but that is not just the women’s football team but with women in the football club I think we are making progress as well.”
Hopefully, more clubs and organisations can jump on board the #GetOnside campaign as this could make a massive difference to the women’s game, not just in Scotland but over the whole of the United Kingdom.
