A schoolgirl has managed to secure a bright future for herself after she leaves school.

Barrhead High pupil Kirsty Maclean successfully juggled the commitments of training full time with the Rangers Women’s team and her studies.

Kirsty achieved five Highers, including 2As and 3Bs, and the 17-year-old is delighted with her results.

The Scotland Under-17 cap has just signed a full-time professional contract with Rangers and is excited to see what the future holds.

Central midfielder Kirsty said: “Juggling my training commitments every night and keeping up my studies was certainly challenging, but the school really supported me to ensure I was as prepared as possible.

“I’ve already made a handful of appearances for the Rangers first team, so we’ll be looking to build on winning the league last season and after signed my first pro contract hopefully cementing my starting spot in the team.

“It’s fantastic that I’ve achieved such good results because it’s always important to have something to fall back on.”
