Rangers Women dished out a hammering to a fellow Glasgow club in the SWPL Cup on Sunday afternoon, triumphing 8-0 over Queen’s Park.

It was the first group stage fixture for Malky Thomson’s side and they flew out of the blocks at the Rangers Training Centre.

Sam Kerr opened the scoring in the fifth minute and Rachel McLauchlan doubled the advantage just five minutes later.

With 17 minutes on the clock, it was three with Jane Ross netting on debut, while one for Lizzie Arnot and second goals for Ross and Kerr made the scoreline an incredible 6-0 at the interval.

The Gers understandably took their foot off the gas a little in the second period but there were two more goals, with Brogan Hay getting on the scoresheet and Ross completing an excellent hat-trick.

There was also a big moment for Demi Vance, who came off the bench to make her first appearance since suffering an ACL injury.

“It’s a pleasing start,” said coach Thomson [RangersTV]. “We totally dominated the game, as we knew we would, but it’s great to get back to competitive football and to get a result.”

“I think we kept really good possession of the ball and it was purposeful, but, if we’re going to split some hairs, we could probably have used it a lot quicker which would have then created more chances.”

It’s an impressive start for Rangers in Group A and over the coming months, they will face Aberdeen, Boroughmuir Thistle and Motherwell as they aim to reach the knockout stages.

Meanwhile, a Rangers loanee is already impressing and has helped his adopted side to the top of the Championship.
