"I am absolutely delighted, I have had a good few weeks with the team before signing and the atmosphere is top class and I am really enjoying it," Grant, 28, told Rangers TV after completing her move to the club.

"I am a creative central midfielder and I like to play box to box as well so I definitely think I can add something to the team and I can learn loads from the girls because there is a wealth of experience here.

"I have travelled a bit with football and I have seen some training centres and this is excellent. From the moment I came in and saw the pitches and the gym facilities, everything is top class and that is a credit to the club."
