Rangers gear up for SWPL return as they aim for historic title success

Rangers will return to action shortly as they eye an historic SWPL1 success by dethroning Glasgow City with clubs returning to training this week ahead of the April 4 restart.

The Gers currently sit top of the league having thrashed the long-time champions 5-0 at the tail end of 2020, leading on goal diffference from Glasgow City.

Clubs are scheduled to complete a full schedule of 21 games but a contingency could see the season declared after 14 games (two full rounds of fixtures), if the situation regarding Covid worsens, after the clubs agreed to it at the start of the season.

SWF chair Vivienne McLaren is delighted to see the top tier of the women’s game get restarted and hopes the rest will be allowed to follow soon, saying: “We are delighted for all involved and those who support the game that there is an imminent return for SWPL 1 football. This has been the most competitive season in the history of the league and we’re confident that will continue as of Sunday 4th April.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the SWPL 1 clubs and our partners for their support. Our priority now is seeking a return for the whole of the girls’ and women’s game as soon as safely possible.”
