Glasgow City captain Laura Montgomery rounded off her 12-year career with the club by lifting the Scottish Women's Premier League trophy for the fourth season in succession.
The defender played her last game in their 11-0 victory over Inverness and she was presented with the trophy following the match.
City manager Peter Caulfield said: "Special praise must go to Laura Montgomery today as, even though she was not 100% fit, she still put in a fighting performance in her last game for the club. She has been an example to every player at this club, over the last twelve years, of how to look after yourself and prepare for games. Her focus and winning mentality have been great for everyone to see and the dressing room will be a strange place without her next season.
"The club may only be twelve years old but Laura has established herself in that time as a true Glasgow City legend and what better way to end a career than to see her hoist the Championship trophy again."
Caulfield also praised the rest of his squad, saying: "It is always an outstanding achievement for any team to win a league title but to have seen this current team now win the title for the fourth successive season is magnificent. I believe this is the best group of players ever assembled in Scotland and their hunger and desire to be winners is incomparable.
"It is not only the fact that they win games consistently, but it is the manner in which they do so and the quality of football they play which is a credit to them. When you have players as committed and focused as the players in this team, then it makes all the hard work worthwhile."
