A blistering first 15 minutes seen Rangers stun Hamilton and secure their spot in the next stage of the Scottish Youth Cup.

Both teams were coming into the game with convincing victories in the previous round, Hamilton winning 8-1 and Rangers winning 9-1.

The goals in this game started almost instantaneously with Rangers taking the lead within 3 minutes after Hannah Robinson was able to slip through Reanna Bates who was there to roll the ball into the bottom corner.

However, within 15 minutes, Rangers were 6 goals to the good with Rosie McQuillan putting away 3, Bates adding another goal to her name, however the pick of the goals came in the form of O'Brien's goal when she showed some lovely skill in the middle of the park before rifling home from 25 yards out.

Rangers were showing their goal scoring form that they showed in the last game and on the stroke of half-time after McQuillan completed a mazy run and put it back for Christie, who putt it away to make it 7-0.

Accies came out in the second half looking to prove a point and came close multiple times in the first 5 minutes of the second half, the closest coming from Laura Anderson rattling the bar from 30 yards out.

It was the turn of Rangers to go forward With Kirsty O’Brien having her front post effort saved superbly by Ellie Currie.

51 minutes in Accies got their reward with Darcy Miller smashing home a superb volley into the top corner.

They soon had a second with Accies being awarded a penalty a few minutes later with Fiona Cullie slotting it home.

Rangers were looking to add an eighth before full time and their closest chance came through O'Brien having two shots saved well at Curries's front before the referee blew the full time whistle to confirm Rangers place in the last 4.
