Christie Murray joins Liverpool
The 50-cap Scottish international returns to the WSL as part of Neil Redfearn’s new-look Reds squad
Liverpool today confirmed the signing of 28-year-old Scotland attacking midfielder Christie Murray on a two-year contract, starting immediately. Murray will wear the historic #10 shirt at the Club.
Murray had previously rejoined Glasgow City over the winter break, after a successful period with Doncaster Belles, scoring 8 goals in 10 games in all competitions. Prior to Doncaster, Murray has previously played at Bristol Academy (now City), Arsenal and Celtic.
Liverpool are a new-look side this season after former men’s player and manager Neil Redfearn took over earlier in the summer. Neil took over Doncaster Belles for the second half of the 2017/18 season, leading them to the WSL2 title.
Murray has represented Scotland at every age group and most recently earned her 55th cap as a starter vs. Poland last month.
Speaking about the move:
Christie Murray: “I am absolutely delighted to have signed for Liverpool Ladies and I’m really looking forward to being back in WSL1. I know what a huge club it is and I cannot wait to make my debut.
“There is going to be a new set of players at Liverpool Ladies for the new season but I know that if the players can gel quickly we will have a really successful season.”
Neil Redfearn, Manager, Liverpool Ladies: “This is another really important signing for the club and I am looking forward to working alongside Christie (Murray). She is a real goal threat as well as being technically excellent so will add some creativity to the team.
“Christie also has the experience of playing in WSL1 before with Arsenal Women and Bristol City Women so I am confident that Christie will hit the ground running and become a real asset.”
