Going into Monday’s fixtures, any of Glasgow City, Celtic or Rangers could have taken the title and until City’s late winner, Celtic looked likely champions.

Moore and Chance both missed their club’s games due to injury, and the pair are hoping to regain fitness in time for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in July.

For Moore, the title win continues her winning streak.

A year ago, the Christchurch-born defender was a member of Liverpool’s English FA Championship-winning squad.

She joined Glasgow City after being released by Liverpool at the expiration of her contract.
