Capped 44 times by World Cup runners-up Holland, the signing of Middag is a coup for the Glasgow side, with the midfielder having starred in the Women’s Super League for Manchester City, while McCoy had previously been on trial with the club following her release from Houston Dash.

Head coach Malky Thomson hailed McCoy as a “valuable addition to our squad”, while Middag admitted she joined the club due to “the project that Rangers have started.”

McCoy links up with international team mate Chantelle Swaby in Glasgow and takes the number 10 shirt, with Middag handed the number 6 jersey.

The pair could make their debut for Gers this weekend, with Thomson’s side set to face Queens Park in the Scottish Women’s Cup at the Rangers Training Centre this Sunday.
