Can Rangers snag domestic treble?

Whether or not Jo Potter will allow the T word to be uttered in her dressing room, Sunday's SWPL Cup victory has kept Rangers firmly on track for a treble this season, a feat that has not been achieved since Glasgow City's 2015 dominance.

Potter's side lifted the first piece of silverware this season after a 4-1 victory over Partick Thistle at Tynecastle, despite having just suffered their first defeat of the season - to Glasgow rivals Celtic - just seven days before.

The team that took to the pitch in Edinburgh was a far cry from the side that were on the losing end at the Excelsior the previous week. They've been a team revitalised under Potter and every player has been full of praise for the manager, prompted or unprompted.

But there are two teams who will have a lot to say about Rangers' mission for the treble.

Glasgow City are out of the Scottish Cup but the league is very much within their grasp. It was a rocky start for Leanne Ross' side, but City have closed the gap to Celtic and both are one point behind leaders Rangers.

Celtic will also be doing their best to rule Rangers out of the remaining two trophies this season. The pair face off at the end of April in the Scottish Cup semi-final and have just one SWPL meeting left before the trophy is lifted in May.

But who will be key for the league leaders in Rangers' quest for the treble?

Jane Ross

After missing the start of the campaign through injury, the forward looks as though she was never out of the side. Her creativity and finishing, as well as her experience, will be hugely important for Rangers moving forward.

Rachel Rowe

Having only signed for Rangers in the summer, Rowe lifted the first trophy of her career with the Glasgow side on Sunday and will be hoping there is more to come. Her vision on and off the ball will no doubt be part of many goals to come this season.

Mia McAulay

It's hard to believe that the 17-year-old is in her first year of a professional contract. You can already see she's bursting with talent and ability. She got Rangers going in Sunday's cup final by netting the first goal and looked a huge threat all afternoon. If Rangers do manage to lift more trophies this season, she'll likely be a big part of that.
