MALKY Thomson has praised his Rangers side after beating Hearts 6-0 at the training center this afternoon to pick up another three all-important points in Park’s Motor Group SWPL 1.
Goals from Megan Bell, Ciara Grant, Kirsty Howat, Brogan Hay and Lizzie Arnot helped Gers to a dominating win over Hearts and Thomson was delighted with the positivity within the squad.
Speaking exclusively to RangersTV after picking up three league points, he said: “I’m really delighted with everything about the team at the moment, I think today’s performance shows how well they came in. It’s really launched.
“I think the biggest factor is being able to have a fit team throughout the campaign and we’ve managed to do that, it’s a credit to the players, the medical staff and the club as a whole. who are around the team. I’m really happy with the amount of positivity that was in the team before the game, the way they are going about it is just professional.
“We analyzed the start of the campaign where we were getting early goals, I think that’s there for all to see because when we get an early goal it really puts a relaxed state among the players, and it just became stronger and stronger. Even as the game progressed, we used the players on the bench and you could see the strength that resulted.
Thomson added his joy for some individual players returning from injury and the resilience shown to have a positive impact on the team.
He continued: “I think it’s players like Megan Bell who have been out for a long time and missed a lot of football, to come back to the stage that she has in a strong team – she’s getting better and better and she is back to the Megan Bell we’ve come to know.
“Kirsten Reilly coming back after being away for a long time is also very nice. The girls who came to replace them really pushed it further.
