Birmingham City Women have signed Scottish midfielder Lisa Robertson on a season-long loan from Celtic, subject to international clearance.

Robertson helped the Hoops qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League for the first time after finishing second in the SWPL last season, with the 29-year-old winning the league’s Player of the Year award.

Robertson told bcfc.com: “I am absolutely delighted to be here and can’t wait to get going really.

“Birmingham is a side in the top league, and it is something that I want to be a part of. I have heard their plans going forward and it is something to be excited about.

“Obviously, knowing Scott Booth is ideal because he knows me, and I have played against him. I love his style of play, so to be a part of that is exciting.”

Robertson has previously had two silverware-winning spells at Hibernian, won a domestic treble while at Glasgow City and had a spell with Durham of the FA Women’s Championship.

She made her debut for Scotland against Cyprus and made her first start in the win over Northern Ireland this Spring.
