A HAT-TRICK of Port Glasgow goal-den girls have been snapped up by Rangers.

Talented trio Aimee Murray, Taylor Coulter and Roma Kelly from Port Glasgow Juniors Community Sports Club have signed for the Ibrox outfit.

Taylor and Aimee started out with the boys team before becoming involved in the girls-only section.

Aimee, 10, of Arran Avenue, said: "I feel excited because Rangers is my favourite team.

"Girls are just as good at football as the boys."

The friends have been playing for up to five years and have a big passion for the beautiful game.

Taylor, 10, said: "It's great fun playing football."

Aimee and Taylor's dads, Gary Murray and Stuart Coulter, coach at Port Juniors.

Stuart, 37, a railway worker, said: "I was over the moon to hear about Rangers signing Taylor, she is living my dream.

"I would have loved to play for Rangers.

"I knew Taylor would play football.

"I used to coach my son's team and she was desperate to train with us so I saw her potential early on."

Aimee's mum Michelle said: "I'm so proud of her. She done amazingly well."

Stuart added: "It great news for the juniors as well and we want to thank all the coaches at the club for their support."

The girls will train at the club's Hummel Training Centre in Milngavie on Tuesdays and Thursdays and play matches on Saturdays.

The youngsters hope to follow in the footsteps of their heroes.

Roma, 11, who attends St Francis' Primary, likes Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne while Aimee is a Lionel Messi fan and Taylor is inspired by Rangers player Amy Muir.

Margaret Vize, secretary of Port Glasgow Juniors' Girls Section, said: "Rangers will provide a different standard of coaching.

"It's an excellent opportunity for the girls and will give them the chance to become involved with the Scotland squad.

"Roma has played with us since she was six and I always knew she would definitely going to go elsewhere - that goes for all three of them."
