Like many of Friday's papers, The National features an image of Kezia Dugdale. The Scottish Labour leader has been branded a "lone ranger", according to the paper, after she "seemingly" failed to register a vote - allowing Scottish government ministers to avoid defeat in a Holyrood debate.

The i paper writes that the SNP was "saved from its first major defeat at Holyrood" - after Ms Dugdale blamed a technical problem for preventing her from voting against plans to reform the council tax.

Meanwhile, The Scotsman says that Ms Dugdale was at the centre of a "Holyrood voting blunder", which saved the SNP government from a "flagship defeat" over plans to reform the council tax.
