LEADING the team out on to the field on Sunday was Glasgow City vice captain Leanne Ross.

Not only did Leanne help marshal her side to a 3-0 victory over Celtic, but she started her 100th Premier League match for the club,

Leanne first joined City back in July 2007 and since then has won six league titles, three League Cups and three Scottish Cups.

She has played every position in a City shirt with the exception of goalkeeper and only six other City players, past and present have ever started more games than this true Glasgow City legend.

Captain this season with the absence of Rachel Corsie through injury, Leanne is a true leader and will without doubt be one of the most revered players ever to wear the City orange.

Head coach Eddie Wolecki Black said, “Considering the women’s league only plays 20 -22 matches then it really shows a remarkable consistency to be selected that often at this club in just under six years.

“Leanne is mentally very strong and tactically aware, so much so she has filled in a number of areas for us throughout her time here. It takes a strong character to play in a team where the demands are so high.

“There is no doubt in my mind that Leanne will finish her career here and can genuinely regard herself as a City great.”
