Glasgow City have won The Scottish Womens Premier League for the 14th consecutive season after a close run season with Celtic and Rangers respectively. BBC SCOTLAND REPORT: “Glasgow City won their 14th successive league title by beating Rangers to finish three points clear of Celtic. City needed only a point to finish top of SWPL1 and goals by Hayley Lauder and Niamh Farrelly sealed a 2-0 win. Celtic, who claim the second Champions League slot, were without seven players following a positive Covid-19 test but beat Motherwell 8-0. Kate Nicolson, Sara Ewens, Anna Filbey twice, Chloe Craig, London Pollard, Kelly Clark and Lisa Robertson scored. Rangers were hoping a win combined with a slip-up by Celtic would hand them second place, but they finish five points off Celtic and eight behind Glasgow City. City have long been the dominant force in Scottish women’s football but heavy investment by both Celtic and Rangers had led some to suggest their position was under threat this season. However, they have seen off their professional rivals to clinch yet another title and qualify for the Champions League again.” FULL BBC SCOTLAND REPORT: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/57376911 Video Embed Via You Tube Glasgow City lift SWPL trophy for the 14th consecutive year #swplSee more News on our website & social media platforms @imadscotland @sportscotodayhttps://t.co/uKRR95bsYD and our website>> https://t.co/6UMxpj00cFPart of IMAD Scotland Group (Scottish Media Marketing Design) pic.twitter.com/yivFXc9ZY2— SportsNewsScotland 🏴 (@SportScoToday) June 6, 2021 ASSOCIATED LINKS: Scottish Women’s Premier League Scottish Womens Football Glasgow City FC: https://www.glasgowcityfc.co.uk/
