Here PLZ Soccer takes a look at the trophy-laden career of a Glasgow City legend:


The midfielder won a monumental 27 trophies for Glasgow City during a 14 year spell at the club.

She made her first Scotland appearance in a 1-0 win over Switzerland in April 2006, in a World Cup qualifier.

2008 was a memorable year for Leanne Ross for both club and country as she helped Scotland qualify for the play-offs for Euro 2009.

In the same year she won the SWPL, the League Cup and reached the last 16 of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

During her international career she won 133 caps and scored 9 goals before retiring from the national team in August 2017.

Leanne Ross took over Glasgow City on a permanent basis in 2023 after the departure of Eileen Gleeson.

She led the club to their 16th league title last season on a dramatic final day with a win over Rangers at Ibrox.

In November 2023, Leanne Ross was named SWF’s SWPL Coach of the Year.

Glasgow City currently sit 3rd in the SWPL table, behind leaders Rangers and 2nd place Celtic.

She is also part of Pedro Martinez Losa’s coaching set-up with the Scotland Women’s national team.
