Rangers have won the inaugural City of Glasgow Women’s Cup with a win over Old Firm rivals Celtic yesterday at Airdrie.

The Light Blues kicked off the season in style, lifting the first piece of silverware of 2022/23 with a 2-1 win over their bitter rivals.

Rangers took the lead after 30 minutes through Sam Kerr, having dominated much of the early proceedings, when she fired home from inside the area.

Clarissa Larisey drew Celtic level shortly before half-time, diverting the ball beyond Rangers keeper Victoria Esson with forty minutes played.

Less than ten minutes after the break, Rangers were back in front, Lizzie Arnot’s corner turned into the back of her own net by Celtic captain Kelly Clark.

Despite needing an own goal to seal the win, the Gers were good value for their victory and deservedly lifted the trophy ahead of the competition being fully rolled out next season as the Glasgow FA take their first venture into women’s football.

Rangers were without Scotland star Jane Ross after it was confirmed she’s suffered a ruptured ACL and now needs surgery and a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Rangers: Esson, Docherty, Hill (Watson, 77), Middag, McLauchlan (Austin, 64), Kerr (Cavanagh, 77), Maclean, Cornet, Arnot, Orschmann (Hay, 46), McCoy (McLeary, 64).
Subs: Fife, Jardine.

Celtic: Johnstone, Robertson, Ross, Craig, Gallacher, Mengyu, Larisey, Clark, Hayes, Ashworth-Clifford, Bowie.
Subs: Marwaha, Ferguson, Burchill, Trialist, Cusack, Goldie, McAneny.
