Rangers Women 1 – 1 Celtic Women

Caitlin Hayes scored a 99th-minute equalizer to deny defending champions and title rivals Rangers a vital victory in the Scottish Women’s Premier League at Broadwood Stadium.

In the first SWPL game to be shown live on skysports, a first-half goal from Brogan Hay (36) looked set to be the difference, but Caitlin Hayes’ strike in the ninth minute of stoppage time salvaged a point for Fran Alonso’s side.

The result means leaders Glasgow City, who beat Hibernian 2-0 on Saturday, end the first round of fixtures following the SWPL split eight points clear of Celtic in second and nine ahead of Rangers in third.
