Celtic Women secured a place in the semi-finals of the SWPL Cup, with a 1-0 victory over Glasgow rivals Rangers.

An early second-half strike from on-form summer signing Charlie Wellings was enough to see Celtic through and secure another impressive victory over Rangers.

Fran Alonso’s side travelled to the Rangers training complex, Murray Park, on Sunday afternoon to face off for a place in the last four of the cup competition, and they knew it was going to be a challenging game ahead, given both sides are still unbeaten in the league this campaign.

The first half was a tight affair between the two teams, with Celtic having the better of the opportunities as they looked to come away with a win on the road.

Early in the second half, they took a massive stride towards doing that, as Charlie Wellings opened the scoring with a crucial goal.

The English striker pounced upon a mistake by Rangers goalkeeper Jenna Fife and hit an unstoppable strike into the back of the net.

That goal took the Hoops towards a massive cup victory against our Glasgow rivals, and Fran Alonso now faces the prospect of a semi-final to come.

The focus switches straight away to the next few league games, though, in what could be a massive week for the Women’s side – with the trip to face Hearts on Wednesday night before once again coming up against Rangers, this time at home, a week today.
