Thomson to stand down as Rangers women's head coach

Rangers women's head coach Malky Thomson is stepping down after the Scottish Cup final to return to the club's academy set up.

The announcement comes after the team failed to defend their SWPL title after losing to Glasgow City on the final day of the season.

Thomson was appointed to the role in 2020 as Rangers transitioned to being Scotland's first full-time professional women's set-up.

He led them to their first Scottish title in 2022 after completing the league season undefeated.

The 54-year-old also led Rangers women in their first Champions League campaign, winning the initial group stage against the champions of Hungary and Greece, before losing to Benfica after extra-time.

He will lead the team at Hampden Park on Sunday as they look to add the Scottish Cup to the Sky Sports Cup they won in December.
