City on Beattie:

Scotland international Jennifer Beattie joined the Blues on 3 January 2015 from French side Montpellier, having previously plied her trade at Queens Park, Celtic and Arsenal.

In the hope of advancing an already illustrious career glittered with trophies, the versatile right-footer - admired for her height, strength and impressive goalscoring ability - signed for the Continental Cup champions eager to add to her collection.

In her schooldays, Beattie was selected as captain of the Glasgow Primary School side, despite being the only girl on the team. Having played for Hamilton Academical's boys teams, she embarked on a senior career with Queens Park.

But then sport runs in her blood - father John played international rugby for Scotland, while elder brother John junior followed in his father's footsteps as an accomplished number eight onto the international stage.

At the age of 15, she competed in the Scottish Women's Premier League and Scottish Women's Premier League Cup before joining Celtic the following January and clinching two domestic trophies.

She then made the move to Arsenal in 2009 where she enjoyed her most successful period to date, securing seven major honours, scoring a variety of stunning goals and memorably netting hat-tricks in famous victories over Chelsea and Barcelona.

Beattie also brings with her a wealth of international experience, having notched more than 80 appearances for her national side.

The Scot describes her playing style as physical, communicative and attack-minded - evident with her fine goalscoring record.

Affectionately known as 'Beats', she shone in her first season at City and hopes her experience in the Champions League will benefit the club in 2016.

Following the conclusion of the 2015 campaign, she was loaned out to Melbourne City Women, where she helped the Club to an incredible 100% record and the W-League Championship.
