Celtic Women made history on Sunday afternoon, winning their maiden SWPL title in the Parkhead sunshine.

Last season, the Ghirls lost the title on the last day of the season but it was a reverse of that this time around, a 1-0 win over Hibernian confirming their status as champions.

Given their superior goal difference, Elene Sadiku’s side knew they had to simply win yesterday, and they did so in the most dramatic of fashions, Amy Gallacher sweeping home in the final minute of the 90 to win the league. It was an iconic moment:

For the first time in Scottish football history, the men’s and women’s teams of the same club have won the SWPL and Scottish Premiership titles.

The Bhoys’ triumph was a tad more comfortable for supporters as the Ghirls left it late.

Gallacher’s goal will go down in history, and her old boss Fran Alonso has reacted to Celtic Women’s success. The Spaniard left the club just before Christmas but his love for the Hoops remains.

On X, he admitted that he is ‘very proud’ of the Ghirls while wishing his congratulations to everyone at the club:

In his four years at Celtic, Alonso became a fan favourite, his loveable personality shining through in several interviews and press conferences.

He still adores the Hoops and clearly keeps an eye on proceedings at his old team.
