One of the star players of local women’s football has joined Scottish Premier League club Rangers.

Glentoran midfielder Demi Vance moves to Glasgow on an 18-month professional contract.

The 28-year-old Northern Ireland international was recently named Danske Women’s Premiership player of the year.



Vance was a key member of the Glens team that won a cup treble during the summer. 

She has 60 caps for her country. 


Speaking about the move, Demi said: "I'm very happy to sign my first professional contract with Rangers. It's a club I have followed my whole life and to sign for them is a dream. I can't wait to get started.

"I hope this opportunity means I can grow as a player and it can only be a good thing for myself and the international team.

"We have more players playing full time and that's a good thing for the squad as it helps us to push on and one day achieve our goal which is to reach a major tournament."

She recently returned to the Northern Ireland international set-up after a spell in Australia and will move to Scotland in January when Rangers start their pre-season.

The popular player has been receiving good luck messages from teammates and opponents alike.


A big weekend of Danske Bank Premiership action kicks off on Friday night with Ballymena hosting Glenavon (7.45pm). 

The Saturday fixtures are:

Carrick Rangers vs Glentoran

Cliftonville vs Coleraine

Dungannon Swifts vs Institute

Linfield vs Crusaders
