Rangers have confirmed the signing of defender Kathryn Hill from Durham WFC, rejoining the Gers after a previous five-year spell at the club.

Hill, who also played in America with Old Dominion University, is comfortable centrally or at full-back and offers more depth to Malky Thomson’s side as they look to retain their crown as Scottish champions.

The defender was delighted to return to Rangers, as the lifelong Gers fan admitted she can’t wait to get to work with the rest of the squad.

“I am obviously really excited,” Hill told Rangers TV.

“It is a proud day for me and my family and I am just looking forward to getting started. When Rangers are interested and as a Rangers fan it is the only move you want to make. You have everything you need here to progress as a player and I can’t wait to walk in here every day and work hard.”

Malky Thomson happy to add more experience ahead of massive season for Rangers

Rangers head coach Malky Thomson is confident Hill’s signing will boost his squad as he backed the defender to help the side on and off the pitch.

With the Gers in the Women’s Champions League for the first time this season, there’s plenty of reasons to be excited and Thomson was buzzing with his latest signing, adding: “We are delighted to have signed Kathryn and she brings with her a wealth of experience which will be important as we prepare for an exciting 2022/23 season.

“She is a strong defender who has played regularly in Scotland, America and England and that can only help our squad both on and off the pitch.”

Rangers face Hungarian champions Ferencváros in the first round of the WCL with the winner facing PAOK or Swansea City.
