Celtic are ten points off the Champions League places after going down 2-1 at Glasgow City.

Charlie Wellings halved the deficit on 64 minutes, when stabbing home a Tegan Bowie cross.

Rangers ran out 4-0 winners at Hamilton, as Kayla McCoy struck twice, Jane Ross and Janni Arnth also among the goals.

Hibs sank Motherwell 7-1, Alexa Coyle, Eilidh Adams and Amy Gallacher with two apiece, including a penalty for the latter, Joelle Murray also contributed while Amy Anderson got a late consolation.

Spartans stayed fifth with a 4-0 defeat of Hearts, Louise Mason netted twice, Caley Gibb scored with a volley and Emma McFayden hit the target on her debut.

Aberdeen returned from Partick with a 2-1 result, Bayley Hutchison at the double after Cara McBrearty’s early effort for Thistle.

Dundee United now have a massive 20-point lead at the top of SWPL 2, following a 3-0 defeat of Stirling University, Jade McLaren bagging a brace and Robyn Smith the other goal.

Second-placed Glasgow Women were held at home by Kilmarnock, Robin Gallacher and Sophie McGoldrick each put them in front but Alex Middleton and Lisa Swanson equalised.

Boroughmuir also had to settle for a point against visitors St Johnstone, Courtney McAvoy’s opener cancelled out by Nicola Jamieson who headed home a Alix Modie free kick.
