Rangers women’s midfielder Laura McCartney has been called up to the Scotland under-19 squad for this summer’s European Championships.

The 16-year-old has been named in Pauline Hamill’s squad and is the only player from the Light Blues to be involved.

Scotland face France at St Mirren Park in their opening before taking on Norway at Firhill on Friday, July 19 and, then finally, the Netherlands back at St Mirren Park on Monday, July 22.

 

Games will be played between July 16 and 28 with matches held in Glasgow, Paisley, Perth and Stirling.

England, Belgium, Spain and Germany are also taking part in the competition, with St Mirren Park hosting the final.

The Gers have recently announced that the women’s teams will be fully integrated into the club’s football department as they aim to turn the side professional.

The talented 16-year-old would likely be a strong contender to be offered professional terms as she progresses her career.

With a recent boom in the women’s game, the Rangers women’s side will now play all their games as the club’s Hummel Training Centre facility in Milngavie under newly-appointed manager Gregory Vignal.
