Jane Ross scored the only goal after just two minutes, which proved enough to give Rangers an Old Firm victory.

Glasgow City won 3-o at fourth-placed Hibs to stay within striking distance of the leaders. Priscila Chinchilla’s opener was added to by Niamh Farrelly in the second half and Lauren Davidson got a late third when following up Ode Fulutudilu’s shot which rebounded off the post.

Motherwell moved up to fifth spot after edging a seven-goal thriller against Aberdeen. Carla Boyce hit a hat-trick on her home debut and Chelsie Watson got the other for the hosts. Bayley Hutchinson got the first for the Dons who trailed 3-1 at half-time, Francesca Ogilvie and Johan Fraser later pulling goals back for a tense finale.

Hearts are of the bottom having won 3-2 at Partick Thistle, where they were twice pegged back. Eilidh Begg and a Maria McAneny free kick had them ahead, Rebecca McGowan and Danica Dalziel replied but Georgia Hunter hit the winner.

Hamilton slipped to last place despite a 2-2 draw with Spartans in which they twice lead. Chloe Muir and Megan Quigley each gave Accies the lead but Rosie McQuillan got the first equaliser and then set up Sarah Clelland for the second.

The top three in SWPL 2 all won, leaving Glasgow Women three points clear after a narrow victory over Boroughmuir. Cara Henderson grabbed the last-minute winner even though earlier scorer Lucy Ronald had been sent off.

Dundee United hit Queen’s Park for six as Jade McLaren contributed a first-half double and Kilmarnock came from behind with a Lisa Swanson brace to win away at Stirling University.
