Rangers have signed Northern Ireland midfielder Megan Bell from FA Women’s Championship side Durham WFC.

The 18-year-old, who joined Durham in the summer from Linfield, signs a two-year professional contract with the Scottish Women’s Premier League 1 team.

Women’s and Girls Football Manager Amy McDonald told www.rangers.co.uk: “Despite her young age, Megan has had plenty of invaluable experiences in football.

“She has shown a level of maturity from a young age that has led to her winning silverware and being recognised at youth and first team levels of international football.

“She has an eye for goal, which is a great thing for a midfielder to have and we are happy that she has chosen Rangers, and the project that we embarking on, as the best place for her to continue her development.”

Bell tweeted: ‘Words can’t describe how it feels to have signed my first professional contract, especially at Rangers – a real childhood dream come true’.
