Sports graduate appointed Rangers Ladies head coach
Amy McDonald, Paisley BSc Sports Studies graduate (2006) and former Scotland star, has been appointed as the new head coach of Rangers Ladies.
Amy, a former Scottish internationalist with 30 caps, combined her studies with playing football and began her senior career with Hamilton Athletic, having spells with Kilmarnock, Queens Park and Celtic, before retiring from the game through injury with Glasgow City – going on to become head of youth at the club.
The new head coach McDonald told Rangers’ website: “Rangers are such a fantastic club and are well reputed throughout Scotland and the world. So when they come and ask you to come into the club and be involved then there is only one answer you can give to be honest and it is a real privilege to be here.”
“I think a lot of people do a comparison of both men and women’s football, but women’s football is entirely different.
“Our game is never going to have the same physicality; it is never going to be the same as the men’s side of the game.
“It is great to get people along to the games, particularly now the national team have qualified for the European Championships and there is a real buzz about the women’s game in this country.”
