The Ibrox outfit are the current Champions but trail Celtic in the SWPL this season and a win on Friday night followed by a victory over current leaders Glasgow City early next month will put Celtic in a brilliant position to go on and win the league for the first time in our club’s unbroken history. Last season Fran Alonso’s exciting Celtic side delivered both the League Cup and the Scottish Cup to the trophy cabinet at Celtic Park and this time the ambition is to add the league title.

So it’s now time to mobilise the Celtic support from the Green Brigade to the Bhoys, supporters clubs, to Celtic Park season ticket holders and those on the waiting list plus of course the regulars who will be there to support the Hoops. It’s Cup Final weekend so why not get it off to absolutely brilliant start by attending a Celtic v theRangers match under the lights and cheer the Hoops on to three points?

This game is open to Celtic supporters only so will NOT have any away supporters, just like that match at Celtic Park in February last year, that was so decisive in Ange Postecoglou’s side going onto win the Scottish Premiership title.

Here’s how the SWPL1 table looks at the moment with Celtic having these two home games against theRangers on Friday night then Glasgow City the following Sunday with a midweek match against Hamilton in the middle as Fran Alonso targets nine points and is anxious to make sure that the Celtic support turns out at this crucial time of the season.

Any Celtic supporter who attended the Women’s Scottish Cup Final at Tynecastle last May will tell you how brilliant a match it was and the atmosphere was superb, with the players all talking afterwards about the incredible backing that was given to the team from the sizeable Celtic support. In particular the noise when the extra time winner for the ten Cels (who had played for 70 minutes with ten players) was simply awesome.

Get along on Friday night and let’s get this league won!
