A round-up from the Scottish Women's Premier League as Rangers stay top with victory at Glasgow City while Celtic thrash rock-bottom Hamilton Academical.
Rangers extended their gap over Glasgow City and continued their unbeaten run as Rio Hardy scored twice to secure victory.
As half-time approached, the ball struck the arm of Anna Oscarsson and the referee awarded a penalty to the visitors. Hardy stepped up and converted from the spot as Lee Gibson dived the right way but had no chance.
Rangers pushed to extend their lead in the second half, coming close when a City clearance fell to Chelsea Cornet, whose shot was saved by Gibson.
City seemed no closer to finding an equaliser with the final whistle approaching. Instead, Hardy killed the game after Gibson's initial save to secure all three points for her side.
Glasgow City are looking increasingly unlikely to retain their title as Rangers are now 11 points clear of them at the top of the table.
City have a chance to reduce the gap to eight points as they host Montrose midweek. Next Sunday, Rangers host Montrose while Glasgow City are away to Dundee United.
