Rangers and Celtic women are set for a Glasgow derby clash in the first SWPL after the split.

The sides will meet at Broadwood on Monday night with only a point separating them in the league.

Glasgow City have built up a nine-point lead over the Hoops at the top of the table with Rangers in third but both Old Firm clubs have a game in hand.

The game, which will be shown live on Sky Sports, kicks off at 7.30pm in North Lanarkshire where Rangers play their home games.

Malky Thomson’s Rangers side are undefeated in the league since their 3-0 defeat to Fran Alonso’s Hoops in February.

Celtic lost 1-0 to City earlier this month as they look to win their first SWPL title.

If they beat the current champions on Monday they will be six-points behind City with nine games remaining.

Celtic will also play Glasgow City in the last four of the Scottish Cup with Rangers meeting Motherwell in the other semi.

Hearts, Hibernian and Partick Thistle make up the rest of the top six who will all play each other another twice before the title is handed out.

Rangers won the title last season to end a 14-year period of domination for Glasgow City.
