Thomson: the competition is strong | Rangers Football Club
MALKY Thomson says competition is high in her squad as they prepare for a trip to Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League this weekend.
The Gers head coach has welcomed a number of players back from injury in recent weeks and believes the team are in good shape ahead of Sunday’s game.
Talk to Rangers TV he said, “I think it’s going to be a very similar challenge to what we’ve faced in most games now. We find that most teams don’t just have a tactic against us anymore, they sometimes sit against us and sometimes they push us high, so we prepare for anything.
“We have bodies back in training, the numbers are high and they are healthy. We have now had three weeks with the entire team back together except Kirsten Reilly.
“Competition levels are up and in the last game we saw Rachel McLauchlan, Sam Kerr and Megan Bell all in attendance and they looked fine.”
Thomson says the team continued to work on their on-field relationships after another good week of practice.
He continued: “This week we have been very strong in getting to know the players who are playing around us. It is important to know their strengths, their weaknesses and to be able to identify training situations where someone might need a bit of cover or where we can use their skills.
“When we started our pre-season, you always build from your heart and having a strong frame to build from allows you to play.
“We are lucky to have enough forward and attacking players, but at the end of the day we always make sure we have good form and structure in any attack.”
