Rangers take on Celtic tomorrow in a massive SWPL1 clash as the Light Blues look to get their hands on a historic title and end Glasgow City’s dominance of the women’s game in Scotland – and Gers boss Malky Thomson thinks his players are desperate to get revenge on their Old Firm rivals after losing in the Scottish Women’s Cup earlier this month.
The Gers suffered a controversial 2-1 defeat in Airdrie but will be hoping to pick up a massive three points in the league at Auchenhowie on Sunday afternoon.
Thomson knows what to expect from Celtic this weekend as he praised the hard work that his players have put in so far to put themselves in a fantastic chance of winning the title.
“There’s nothing better than getting on that stage and the girls are really craving that and are looking forward to the challenge,” Thomson said [RangersTV].
“The result didn’t go our way the last time but we know why and it is fine margins but that gives us a real eagerness heading into our next game. The girls have worked ever so hard, along with the staff, to get into the position we are right now and we must maintain those standards.
“We know that we are possession-based, we keep the ball, we have some great passages of play and we have some real good moments where we control play but it is the fine margins at both ends.
“We have got to take our chances when we do have that possession and also when we are getting countered and the few attacks that opposition have against us we have to be so solid – it is about looking after either end of the pitch.”
Rangers sit two points ahead of Glasgow City with a game in hand on the perennial SWPL champions ahead of the women’s game coming under the control of the SPFL next season.
