Sportscene: Scottish Premiership highlights on Saturday early evening slot

Aberdeen v Rangers looks the pick of the opening weekend's games
The first Saturday Sportscene since 2002 will feature highlights of Aberdeen's match against Rangers

Sportscene will show all of the day's Scottish Premiership goals every Saturday evening this season.

The hour-long show - which will return to Saturdays for the first time since 2002 - will be on the BBC Scotland channel from 1 August at 19:30 BST, presented by Jonathan Sutherland.

Steven Thompson will helm the Sunday programme, which starts with Celtic v Hamilton Academical the next day.

Ross County v Motherwell will also have its own highlights show on 3 August.

So, too, will the contest between Hibernian and Dundee United on 11 August, before a five-game programme the following evening.

Fans can also keep up to date with matches as they happen on Sportscene Results, BBC Radio Scotland and on the BBC Scotland website.

Sportscene Results with David Currie will be on BBC One Scotland on Saturday afternoons and the Sunday edition of Sportscene will also be repeated on BBC One Scotland later in the evening.

The Friday Championship programme will return when the second-tier season starts on 17 October and will be co-presented by Scotland international Leanne Crichton and Jonathan Sutherland.

Each of the programmes will include pundits from the women's game, current Scottish Premiership players as well as current and former Scotland internationals.

Richard Gordon will be in the presenter's chair for Sportsound on Saturdays as usual, with Jane Lewis at the helm of the Sunday edition.

And for the month of August, Off the Ball with Stuart and Tam will be on air from 12:00-14:00 on both Saturdays and Sundays.
