Glasgow City 2-0 Rangers
Hearts 1-1 Spartans
Hibernian 7-0 Forfar Farmington
Motherwell 0-8 Celtic

Glasgow City win 14th straight title

Glasgow City struck twice in the first half to secure another championship, while Rangers had to settle for third place.

Shortly after City’s Lee Alexander blocked a Brogan Hay effort at the near post with her leg, Hayley Lauder’s angled shot found the corner of the Rangers’ net despite a touch from keeper Megan Cunningham.

Niamh Farrelly headed home from a Lauder free kick, as the hosts went in two up at the break.

Emma Brownlie came closest to a reply for Rangers, hitting the crossbar with only two minutes remaining.

Celtic went into their crucial game at Motherwell missing seven players due to Covid but it didn’t show, as they eased to a big win and qualified for Europe for the first time.

They were three goals up inside 20 minutes, Kate Nicolson struck from distance, Sarah Ewens reached a long ball to stab it past the keeper and Anna Filbey turned home following Tegan Bowie’s run and cross.

Bowie was the provider again, squaring the ball across the face of goal for Chloe Craig to finish, before London Pollard opened her Hoops’ account for a 5-0 half-time lead.

Pollard set up Filbey for her second, Kelly Clark nodded in from a corner and after Chloe Warrington hit the post, Lisa Robertson put the loose ball away.

Hibs hit seven

Hibernian ran out 7-0 winners over Forfar Farmington, with seven different scorers.

Amy Gallacher followed up to net the rebound from a Carla Boyce effort, Eilidh Adams doubling the lead close to the interval.

Ellis Notley finished off a team move, Siobhan Hunter headed in, Boyce also got on the scoresheet, before Rosie Livingstone scored in only her second appearance and Kirsty Morrison volleyed in number seven.

Late drama as Hearts held by Spartans

There were two goals in the dying minutes, as Hearts and Spartans finished all square at one apiece.

Becky Galbraith had headed aga9nst the bar for Spartans in the first half but it was the hosts who eventually broke the deadlock from a Murron Cunningham penalty.

Galbraith did then find the net late on to rescue a point for the visitors.
