Glasgow City are back within two points of leaders Rangers – but from one game more –  following Thursday’s defeat of Celtic, which gave them a five-point lead over the third-placed Hoops.

They took the lead inside 15 minutes as Priscila Chinchilla forced herself into the box and set up Ode Fulutudilu to find the far corner.

Hayley Lauder hit the post for City shortly before they doubled their lead in the second half, Chinchilla playing in Tyler Dodds whose shot wasn’t dealt with by Chloe Logan.

Clare Shine hit Logan’s crossbar before the keeper had to go off injured and with all Celtic’s subs used, Caitlin Hayes took over between the sticks.

Rangers won 4-0 over Hamilton on Wednesday, with Kirsty Howat not only playing for the first time in nine months following an ACL injury but scoring in the second half, when following up Lizzie Arnott’s blocked shot.

Kayla McCoy had bagged a first-half brace from Brogan Hay deliveries and Zoe Ness netted with a header from Arnott’s corner to see the hosts three up at the break.

Rangers next face Celtic in the Scottish Women’s Cup at Airdrie on Sunday.
