Rangers have won the SWPL title this afternoon, marking the club’s first trophy for the women’s side and ending 14 years of Glasgow City dominance.
The Light Blues sealed the title this afternoon wit a 0-0 draw against City which means Rangers hold an eight-point gap at the top of the table with only two games remaining for Glasgow City to play.
Malky Thomson’s side are still unbeaten in the league this season and will be the final SWPL champions ahead of clubs making the leap to the SPFL and a new women’s set up for next season.
Glasgow City have been champions since 2007/08 and it is an incredible achievement from Thomson’s side to wrestle the title away and secure their place in next season’s Women’s Champions League.
Rangers have made huge investment in the women’s side in recent years turning professional and the club have now been rewarded with a historic title triumph.
Rangers now need to build on investment and deliver continued success
While there’s little doubt Rangers have spent big to bring success to the club, the Gers now need to build solid foundations to deliver more in the coming years.
As the women’s game continues to grow in Scotland, dominating the men’s and women’s game would be perfect.
However, that’s for further down the road. Tonight, the Rangers players and staff should enjoy their success.
