Glasgow City are celebrating their fourteenth title in a row after they defeated Rangers 2-0 to make sure of winning the Scottish Women's Premier League.
Scott Booth's side went into the last game of the season needing to avoid defeat in order to be crowned as Champions once again and got off to the start they wanted when Hayley Lauder drilled home an angled shot to give them a thirteenth minute lead. Niamh Farrelly then headed in the second from a free kick just after the half hour to set City on their way to a strong win on the day and seal what may well be their most impressive title success to date.
Celtic did all they could as they scored eight times without reply against Motherwell but had to settle for the runners-up, which brings the prize of a place in next season's UEFA Women's Champions League. Chloe Craig and Sarah Ewens put the Hoops two ahead inside the opening ten minutes, Craig having fired home a spectacular strike from 30 yards, and after Anna Filbey had made it three, Craig netted her second and London Pollard also got on the scoresheet before half time. Celtic did not let up after the break and Filbey completed her double, before Kelly Clark and Lisa Robertson rounded off the scoring.
Hibernian meanwhile ran out 7-0 winners over Forfar Farmington and this was enough to see them end the season with a top half finish. Amy Gallacher and Eilidh Adams put two goals ahead at the interval and in the second half, Ellis Notley and Siobhan Hunter scored in quick succession just ahead of the hour, before Hibs went on to add further goals through Carla Boyce, Rosie Livingstone and Kirsty Morrison.
The victory means that Hibernian finish on goal difference above Spartans who shared a 1-1 draw with Hearts. Both goals came late on in the game, Murron Cunningham giving Hearts the lead from the penalty spot but they were denied their third win of the campaign when Rebecca Galbraith equalised with an injury time header.
