Rangers and Celtic Women draw blank as title race heats up and leads into final games

Rangers and Celtic Women shared the spoils in a top-of-the-table SWPL clash with the title looking like going down to the wire.

The Hoops are top of the table on goal difference with both teams locked on 72 points heading into this one, with Glasgow City falling six points behind after recent form. Gers hosted an Old Firm derby at Broadwood this afternoon which could've gone a long way to deciding the destination of the league trophy.

But it remains as is in the title race with neither side able to find the net in a cagey affair. Both did come close with the home side's Eilidh Austin rattling the crossbar with an unbelievable strike from distance, inches away from being a spectacular opener just under midway through the first-half.

Just after the break, it was Celts who went close with Natasha Flint testing Victoria Esson on the angle. But the keeper was equal to it and Nicola Docherty cleared the loose ball from danger.

The Hoops were probably the more dangerous and likely to score during the second period but were unable to find the breakthrough.

At the other end, their was almost a magical moment for Mia McAulay in the dying minutes but the woodwork was struck once again.

There are now three games apiece left to play with Rangers facing two tough away games in a row against Glasgow City and Hibs before finishing with Partick Thistle at home.

Celtic have Thistle at home, Hearts away and Hibs at home. Their goal difference is significantly better than their rivals' so they definitely hold the advantage after avoiding defeat today.
