Celtic yesterday secured Women’s Champions League qualification

The results in the SWPL1 yesterday edged Celtic a step closer to a first ever title win for Celtic FC Women and also secured our place in next season’s Women’s Champions League.

Congratulations to Elena Sadiku

So congratulations to Elena Sadiku and the Ghirls who were able to celebrate together last night at the Hydro with Amy Gallacher winning the Players Player of the Year and fan favourite Caitlin Hayes picking up the Player of the Year award for the second year in row.

And our Queen of Queens (elect, she has to win the league first!) Elena Sadiku met her own personal Celtic hero Henrik Larsson at the Hydro as the Swedish influence on Celtic FC was celebrated!

A competent, professional performance

Yesterday Elena’s team put in a competent, professional performance with a 3-0 win over Partick Thistle at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium with goals from Amy Gallagher, Murphy Agnew and Shen Mengyu.

Then later in the afternoon theRangers Women won 1-0 away to Glasgow City in a smash and grab job with the current Champions losing their last chance of European football next season in a game that they dominated.

Goal difference advantage of +15

That leaves Celtic FC Women and theRangers still level on points, each with two matches to play but Celtic’s goal difference advantage is now up to +15.

Attention turns to Edinburgh

Attention now turns to Edinburgh on Wednesday early evening where Hearts entertain Celtic FC Women and Hibs take on theRangers with both matches kicking off at 6 pm and live on BBC Alba. Hibs incidentally won the women’s Edinburgh derby at the weekend.

The it’s onto the final SWPL matches of the season.  Celtic FC Women v Hibs at Celtic Park and theRangers v Partick Thistle at Broadwood.

Two trophy days this weekend at Celtic Park?

If Celtic FC Women win the two games against the Edinburgh sides we are 99.99% certain to be Champions. So if you’re not going to Rugby Park on Wednesday, tune in to watch the Ghirls play a hugely important game then get along to Celtic Park on Sunday for what hopefully is the second trophy day of the weekend.

If the Ghirls win the league it will be the first time that the men’s and women’s team have won the league in the same season – another remarkable achievement for Celtic!
