Rangers Ladies are in a promising position going into the winter break sitting top of the First Division of the Scottish Women's Football League.
As manager Drew Todd explained, winning promotion to the Premier League is the club's main ambition in their inaugural season.
"We've had a decent start to the season," he told Football Central, "but really that's all it is, a decent start.
"And when you look at it, this club is really in its infancy and my group of players have only been playing together for 12 weeks, so it's early days and we can't get ahead of ourselves.
"We still need to take one game at a time. That said, the girls have put in some good performances this season.
"I think we have a good balance of experience and youth. Girls like Jayne Somerville and Steph Handley have international experience, Jayne has European experience in the Champions League as well. Then we've got girls like Jenna Ross and Natasha Anderson who are getting better every week. We have players like that all through the squad so i'm happy with that.
"This is my first season coaching a women's team but I spent a good part of last season taking in games at every level to understand what we were getting into. The technical standard of the women's game is good, and should we reach the Premier League this season then I sure we'll cope well.
"As far as the League goes it is definitely our goal to win the league and get promoted. But a lot of football still has to be played so we can't count on anything yet.
"There are a lot of good teams in this league who have been together a lot longer than us, so i'm sure we have a fight on our hands to finish top."
Rangers Community manager Raymond Farrelly added: "The club is delighted with the progress the women's squad has made so far this season.
"Drew and the girls have done a tremendous job to get to this point in their first year. It reflects their commitment and attitude to playing for Rangers.
"The bottom line is we want promotion to the Premier League and it looks like we could even do that in our first season which would be an outstanding achievement."
