Speaking after re-joining the club for a THIRD spell, Grant said: “Glasgow City has always felt like home to me having achieved so much here previously.

“Having spent the past few seasons in the WSL, it is an amazing feeling to come back to this club and I cannot wait to use my experience to help the club achieve their aspirations for this season.

“For me personally this is a great opportunity to help the team continue to win games and hopefully trophies at the end of the season.”

Commenting on her latest addition to the squad, head coach Gleeson stated: “We are delighted to welcome Abbi Grant back to Glasgow City FC.

“Abbi is a dynamic forward player, she will be a great addition to our team and with her knowledge and experience of Scottish Women’s football we have no doubt that Abbi can have an immediate impact.”
