Bayern Munich have signed midfielder Sam Kerr from Rangers Women on a three-year contract.

The Scotland international moved to Rangers from Scottish champions Glasgow City in 2020 and helped them beat her former club to the title last season.

Kerr made 39 appearances, scoring eight goals, this term as Rangers finished third, but won the League Cup.

The 24-year-old is delighted to be joining “one of the biggest clubs in the world”.

Speaking following her move, Kerr said: “I would like to say thank you to all the fans, players, and staff for an incredible three years at Rangers.

“I love this club and I am grateful for everything the club has done for me – I will miss you all.”

She told Bayern Women’s website: “It’s Bayern Munich – it’s an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down.

“The quality of players here is amazing. I’ve played big teams before in the Champions League and I think I can gain the experience here to go further.

“I’m an energetic player who gives everything for the team. I’m hungry, I work hard and like to get stuck into every tackle. I’m that typical Scottish player.”

Bayern technical director Francisco De Sa Fardilha, whose side have qualified for the Champions League group stage after pipping Wolfsburg to the title, is delighted to sign such an “ambitious” player.

“We think it’s the right point in her career to come to FC Bayern,” he added. “She fits everything this club stands for. She has the fighting spirit, she has the tactical quality and the technical quality.

“Above everything, she’s hungry.”
