Glasgow City won a record breaking fourth SWPL title in a row following a 3-1 victory over Celtic at Lennoxtown.
City opened the scoring in the opening 12 minutes through centre half Rachel Corsie. Kat Lindner played in Jane Ross and her shot cannoned off the Celtic post and Corsie finished from close range.
Within a minute of the restart Celtic got themselves back into the match after a deflection saw a Christie Murray shot hit City's Leanne Ross and wrong foot Laura Williamson in the City goals.
However, City went on to dominate the second period putting pressure on the Celtic defence and went ahead again when Jane Ross broke through, only to see her shot was well saved by Gemma Faye, however she could only parry the ball wide and Katharina Lindner finished well under pressure.
City then put the match beyond doubt when City striker Ruesha Littlejohn hit an outstanding left foot volley into the back of the net from just inside the box. There was almost a fourth a few minutes later when Celtic midfielder Stacey Cook turned a City cross towards her own goal, but a brilliant save from Faye saved her blushes.
Spartans meanwhile secured themselves a third place finish with a 1-0 victory away to Hibernian. Diana Barry scored the only goal of the game which confirms that the Edinburgh side will finish above their local rivals.
Forfar Farmington and Hamilton Academicals battled out a 2-2 draw which means that both sides look set to finish the season in the top half. Nikki Wright netted twice for Forfar, with Hamilton replying through Katie Reilly and Sam McManus.
Inverness claimed their second win in successive weeks and they have leapfrogged Rangers in the table after beating them 1-0, thanks to a solitary strike from Lorraine Cadden.
Boroughmuir Thistle are finishing the season well and they also won for the second week in a row, 4-0 against Aberdeen. Alana Marshall and Kirsty McLaughlin each bagged doubles for Thistle.
FC Kilmarnock are off the bottom of the table and boosted their chances of avoiding relegation as they defeated Dundee Utd SC 4-3. Claire Docherty was the hero for Killie as she hit a hat-trick with Nicola Murray adding the other, United responding with strikes from Ciara Barnes, Kirsty McKim and Carla Giannico.
