    Caley Thistle riding high

    Inverness beat Celtic 1-0

    There were excellent wins for Kilmarnock, St Johnstone, Dundee, Dundee United and Hamilton today. But top billing goes to Inverness who beat Celtic 1-0 to stay top of the pile.

    John Hughes's side are unbeaten in four games and are yet to concede a goal.

    That's enough from me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for your company on another action-packed Saturday.

    Online highlights of the games will be available from 18:00 BST tomorrow.

    BBC Radio Scotland's Derek Ferguson at Rugby Park

    "Kilmarnock were excellent and in complete control. It was a complete cruise. I can't believe Josh Magennis didn't get on the scoresheet; he had three great chances in the first half and another right at the end.

    "Motherwell could do with some of the character shown by their Lanarkshire rivals Hamilton."

  3. Post update

    Ross County boss Derek Adams on BBC Radio Scotland

    "We were in total command of the game and had two open goals we haven't taken at 1-1. Performance-wise I thought we were excellent. Dundee United have stolen the points today and that has been the story of our season so far."

    Hamilton celebrate Jason Scotland's late, late winner at Firhill.

    Hamilton celebrate Jason Scotland's late, late winner at Firhill. That's three wins on the spin for Alex Neil's newly-promoted side. Nice work...

    Anonymous: "So much for the Sportsound team saying that Aberdeen would be up there this season - once again wrong."

    Sheelagh: "Hamilton are showing incredible fight and bravery at the start of the season. They will stay up without a doubt. Top effort boys!"

  6. Post update

    Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes

    "I thought we were quite indulgent in our play, knocking it around without causing them problems. St Johnstone are aggressive and very well organised but we had a couple of opportunities, so it's a poor afternoon's work for us."

  7. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Chick Young at Firhill

    "I think Partick Thistle just switched off after they scored, thinking it was job done. I tipped Accies to go down and I think I've got that one spectacularly wrong."

  8. Post update

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright on BBC Radio Scotland

    "Steven MacLean is a leader for us on and off the pitch. He knows how to link play and he probably doesn't get enough goals due to all of the unselfish work he does outside the box. We were competitive from the first whistle and that helped us."

  9. Post update

    Former Aberdeen skipper Willie Miller at McDiarmid Park

    "St Johnstone were the better team over the 90 minutes. In the first 30 minutes they totally dominated. The Dons did come back in that first half but in the second half there wasn't much flowing football from either side. Steven MacLean was outstanding again in that lone striker's role, he set up a number of chances and got the crucial goal."

  10. Post update

    And what about the Championship - did you all think Queen of the South would be above Rangers and Hibs would be in eighth place? Hearts are looking good value at the top after demolishing Raith Rovers in Kirkcaldy.

  13. Post update

    Dundee won 1-0 at St Mirren Park

    What a flurry of late goals! Dundee striker Peter MacDonald was among the scorers in the final few minutes giving Paul Hartley's side their first win of the season.

    St Mirren and Ross County are stuck at the bottom of the table, without a point.

    Dundee United 2-1 Ross County

    John: "Aberdeen are really struggling at the start of this season that promised so much."

  17. GOAL

    St Johnstone 1-0 Aberdeen

    Peter Pawlett is booked for diving this time. He was warned earlier on and after he hits the deck again this time Craig Thomson reaches for a card.

  22. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Hamilton

    Hamilton's Ali Crawford is presented with a golden chance to roll the ball into the back of Partick Thistle's open net from close-range, but somehow side-foots it wide. File under shocker...

  23. GOAL

    St Johnstone 1-0 Aberdeen (MacLean)

    Saints are ahead as Steven MacLean breaks the deadlock at McDairmid Park. Michael O'Halloran's cross wasn't great but the Dons defence don't deal with it and the experienced striker strokes the ball into the net.

  24. GOAL

    St Mirren 0-1 Dundee (MacDonald)

    Peter MacDonald takes down a long ball calmly slots into the net to give Dundee the lead. Could they be on their way to their first league win of the season?

    Ross County scorer Jake Jervis shapes to shoot in the six-yard box but gets it all wrong, the ball going high over the bar.

  26. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 2-0 Motherwell (Clingan)

    Is that game over in Ayrshire? With the Steelemen down to 10 men, Sammy Clingan rubs further salt in the wound by netting from a free-kick.


    St Mirren 0-0 Dundee

    The visiting fans want a penalty as Craig Wighton goes down under a hefty challenge from Ellis Plummer but play is waved on.

  28. RED CARD

    Kilmarnock 1-0 Motherwell

    The visitors are down to 10 men as Fraser Kerr is sent for an early bath for a dangerous challenge on the edge of the penalty box.

  29. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    It's a first sighting for the St Johnstone fans of new signing Simon Lappin as he comes off the bench. Can he make an impact with the game stuck in a stalemate rut after such an exciting first half?

  30. Post update

    Kilmarnock 1-0 Motherwell

    Motherwell's Henrik Ojamaa dispossesses Killie defender Mark Connolly and bears down on goal, but fails to get his shot away before other defenders tidy up the Irishman's mistake.

    Dundee hit back straight away with a swift move up the park and a shot from Dundee substitute Peter MacDonald but Marian Kello is equal to it with a stretching save.

  34. Post update

    St Mirren 0-0 Dundee

    Buddies substitute Steven Thompson flicks it on for Kenny McLean, who clips a great ball to Adam Drury who somehow volleys over from six yards...

  35. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    Former Aberdeen captain Willie Miller on BBC Radio Scotland: "Aberdeen have had the bulk of possession in this second half but haven't done anything with it. Neither side are creating any chances since the break, it's just so tight in the midfield."

  36. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    Peter Pawlett hits the deck but referee Craig Thomson deems it a dive. He doesn't book the Aberdeen midfielder, who has previous in this department, but does take the opportunity to have a quiet word in his ear after a break in play.

  37. CLOSE!

    Dundee United 1-1 Ross County

    Mario Bilate drifts away from his marker and gets in a shot but the Dundee Untied forward cannot find the net.

  38. Post update

    St Mirren 0-0 Dundee

    St Mirren striker Calum Ball threatens again with a wicked shot that fizzes across the face of goal. He's looking lively up front for the Buddies.

  39. Post update

    Championship update

    Take a bow James Keatings! The Hearts forward curls in a fabulous free-kick for his hat-trick. The Tynecastle side lead 3-0 at Raith Rovers. Rangers are also 3-0 up on Dumbarton, with Nicky Clark on target.

  40. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Hamilton

    Fresh from that fine save, Michael McGovern almost blunders by dropping a simple cross ball but the Accies keeper recovers well to save his blushes.

  43. Post update

    St Mirren 0-0 Dundee

    St Mirren full-back Jason Naismith bursts down the right and puts in a nice, low delivery but Calum Ball somehow side-foots wide. A big chance...

  46. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park

    "Allan Johnston's Kilmarnock are well worth their 1-0 lead and to be honest it should have been a bigger lead they took to the home dressing room. However, opposition goalkeeper Dan Twardzik has played a huge part in keeping Motherwell's deficit to a solitary goal.

    "The Steelmen put more pressure on the Killie defence towards the end of the first-half, but are struggling to contain a very lively looking Josh Magennis, who is at the hub of most home attacks."

  47. Post update

    Sheer delight for Dundee Utd goalscorer Nadir Ciftci

    BBC Radio Scotland's Jim Spence has been unusually quiet on Open All Mics, just the odd 'ooh and aah' from Tanandice. We have had one goal, though, and it came from the head of Dundee United striker Nadir Ciftci.


    Dundee United 1-0 Ross County

  51. Post update

    St Mirren 0-0 Dundee

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at St Mirren Park: "Fairly even so far. Both sides playing composed, passing football, and there are threats in both attacks."

  52. Post update

    Kilmarnock 1-0 Motherwell

    BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park: "Rory McKenzie is next to test Motherwell goalkeeper Dan Twardzik from distance, as he zips in a low strike which the Czech tops round the post for a corner.

    "Motherwell have been better this last five minutes but are struggling to create anything clear-cut. But their fans are still banging their drums in the away section."


    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    This time Aberdeen hit the frame of the goal. Shaleum Logan crosses from the right to Andrew Considine who bullets the header off the crossbar. Steven Anderson then nearly puts the rebound into his own net but manages to scramble it away for a corner.

    BBC Scotland's Chick Young at Firhill

    "I was upbeat about this game, thinking we would get a good match. But it's been start-stop, very scrappy - and players can't seem to find their team-mates. The first few minutes were fine, but since then it's really not been very good at all."

  56. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    Gary MacDonald is the latest St Johnstone player to pass up the chance to open the scoring. This time Dons keeper Jamie Langfield spills the ball and the former Aberdeen man puts the loose ball wide of the post.


    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    A poor passback by Jonny Hayes gifts Steven Maclean the chance, but he hits the post. Both players apologise to their team-mates.

  58. GOAL

    It's a first goal of the season for Nadir Ciftci as the striker rises unchallenged to head Dundee United into the lead.

  59. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park

    "Josh Magennis has two glorious chances to extend Killie's lead but 'Well keeper Dan Twardzik twice denies him brilliantly.

    "What a strike from 18-year-old Robbie Muirhead, thumping it into the top left corner from 25 yards. The ball broke to him after a throw-in and I don't think Motherwell goalkeeper Dan Twardzik was expecting him to shoot... but shoot he certainly did!"

  64. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    St Johnstone are looking for a penalty when Dave Mackay hits the deck as David Wotherspoon's ball whizzes across the face of goal. Referee Craig Thomson is uninterested though.

  65. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 1-0 Motherwell (Muirhead)

    Killie are ahead thanks to a long-range belter from Robbie Muirhead.

  66. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Aberdeen

    Great play from St Johnstone forward Steven MacLean who manages to thread the ball through to David Wotherspoon. The former Hibs man maybe should have taken a touch first, but his composure deserts him and he puts his shot wide.

  67. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Hamilton

    Dundee Utd v Ross County

    United were torn apart at Celtic Park last week, with manager Jackie McNamara saying his side's defending was "embarrassing". They had gone to Glasgow full of optimism after wins over Aberdeen and Motherwell, so six points from nine against last season's top three is not to be sniffed at.

    The Staggies have nothing to show for their first three matches. Zilch. County boss Derek Adams has been frustrated by the sloppy nature of the goals conceded so far and will have been working hard on defensive drills.

    Celtic respond to losing that goal by sending on Anthony Stokes for Leigh Griffiths.

  101. GOAL

    Inverness CT 1-0 Celtic (O'Connell og)

    This is all about the run and cross from Marley Watkins as he speeds down the right and sends the ball down the corridor of uncertainty. As Billy McKay throws himself at it, keeper Lukasz Zaluska has a flap and it strikes the shins of Eoghan O'Connell before spinning into the net.

    Inverness have been sticking gamely to their pass and move style but they are not getting anywhere near the time they had on the ball against Motherwell last weekend. Celtic are pressing hard all over the pitch, with the high-tempo approach favoured by manager Ronny Deila.

    BBC Radio Scotland's Charlie Mann tells listeners that Ally McCoist is "definitely on a list" for the managerial vacancy at Crystal Palace. He doesn't tell us who's list, however. Would the Rangers boss be keen on a move down south?

  114. HALF-TIME

    Inverness CT 0-0 Celtic

    It's been a open game, with both sides intent on getting forward. Dean Brill has been the busier goalkeeper and Nir Biton came closest to scoring for Celtic with a lovely shot that struck the crossbar.

  115. Post update

    Inverness right-back David Raven swings in a high, looping cross and Lukasz Zaluska, who played just two games for Celtic last season, doesn't look very comfortable under pressure from Danny Williams at the back post. The keeper misses with his punch but the midfielder can only nod off target from a very tight angle.

  116. CLOSE!

    Celtic captain Charlie Mulgrew pops up on his own goal-line to make a vital clearance, nodding away a looping header from Gary Warren, who was found by a Graeme Shinnie corner kick.

  117. Post update

    Inverness full-back Graeme Shinnie makes his way past a slipping Dylan McGeough in the Celtic box but young Eoghan O'Connell gets across to block his path.


    Celtic midfielder Nir Biton leaves two defenders on their backsides with a lovely change of direction on the edge of the penalty area then lofts a curling strike against the crossbar, with keeper Dean Brill a spectator.

    ICT's Graeme Shinnie barges into Dylan McGeouch

    ICT's Graeme Shinnie gives Dylan McGeouch a good old fashioned barge in what has been an open first half in the Highlands.

  120. Post update

    Play rages up the park immediately and Kris Commons runs on to a Leigh Griffiths pass on the edge of the penalty box and draws a diving save from Dean Brill with a firm, first-time effort.


    The home fans are screaming for a penalty as Filip Twardzik sticks out a leg and Ryan Christie goes for a tumble but referee Bobby Madden is not interested.

    There may have been slight sock-on-sock contact but hardly enough to create a spark of static, never mind cause a man to lose his balance.

  122. GREAT SAVE!

    Celtic striker Teemu Pukki has two bites at the cherry from close range but he can't find a way past Dean Brill, who makes two good blocks at his near post.

  123. Post update

    Kris Commons scored the only goal after three minutes on Celtic's last league visit to Inverness and that was followed by 5-0 and 6-0 defeats for Inverness in Glasgow last season.

    It's a busy period for Dean Brill as the big former Luton goalie has to tip over a first-time, hooked shot from Efe Ambrose after Liam Henderson aims a free-kick to the edge of the home penalty box.

  125. Post update

    Home keeper Dean Brill looks more confident this time as he clutches a angled drive from Liam Henderson.

  126. Post update

    Dylan McGeough hasn't started a Celtic game since the shock home defeat to Morton in the League Cup last September. The midfielder is on hand as Inverness keeper Dean Brill spills the ball when charging out to thwart Teemu Pukki but he can't escape a defender in blue in the penalty area.

  127. Post update

    Celtic playmaker Kris Commons finds Leigh Griffiths lurking on the right edge of the penalty area and the Celtic forward elects to have a pop rather than cut in on his favoured left side. The shot flies through the legs of a defender but nestles in the side-netting.

  128. Post update

    Greg Tansey has got his shooting boots on today as he leathers in another effort - this time from fully 30 yards - and the ball skids a foot or two wide of the target.

    Marley Watkins clearly fancies his chances against Celtic left-back Filip Twardzik. The winger has left him for dead twice already in these opening exchanges.

  131. Post update

    Inverness midfielder Greg Tansey, who scored a great goal at Motherwell last weekend, fires a free kick narrowly wide from 22 yards.

  132. Post update

    The sun is shining in the Highland capital but there's a stiff breeze coming in off the Moray Firth and the fans are well wrapped up as Celtic forward Kris Commons slips when shooting from a tight angle.

  133. KICK-OFF

    Inverness get the game started, with Celtic in an almost all-white kit today...

  134. Post update

    The mood at Celtic has been lifted dramatically in the last few weeks. The memory of that harrowing defeat from Legia Warsaw is fading after nine goals in two league wins and a very useful draw in Slovenia on Wednesday following a remarkable European reprieve.

  135. Post update

    I was at Fir Park last Saturday and Inverness were impressive as they coasted to victory. Danny Williams, Marley Watkins and Ryan Christie were full of clever runs and slick movement behind striker Billy McKay. The squad may be a little thin but if a tricky customer like Aaron Doran is on the bench, then you know the home side have got a good thing going.

    Doran scored a screamer late on against Motherwell and Greg Tansey's opener was another excellent strike, so Celtic will need to work hard to close down shooting opportunities.

    More from Celtic boss Ronny Deila

    "We hope things will happen this week. I think we'll get things how we want them."

    The question? How are things progressing with moves for Sporting Gijon's Serbian striker Stefan Scepovic and finalising a loan move for Ghana winger Wasako Mubarak?

    Celtic boss Ronny Deila on BBC Radio Scotland

    "I have so many good players and it's important to use the squad. The team is different from Wednesday but it is a very good team. I think we will see a lot of energy today."

  138. Post update

    Inverness manager John Hughes on BBC Radio Scotland

    "This will be a big test for us. We guessed they would make changes but some of the boys coming in for Celtic - I would take them in my team - they have last year's player of the year, Kris Commons. It's all about us though. If we play with the same enthusiasm and look after the ball it should be a cracker."

    Motherwell' Craig Reid takes the plunge

    It all went a bit ice bucket challenge crazy yesterday, with Scottish footballers up and down the land being doused with chilled water for a good cause. Motherwell's Craig Reid seemed to rather enjoy it...

    Inverness are looking for their first home win over the reigning champions since May 2011 although Caley Thistle were 1-0 winners in the east end of Glasgow in November 2012.

    Former Celtic midfielder Murdo MacLeod on BBC Radio Scotland

    "Ronny Deila always talks about the next game being the most important but it's clear where the priority is. I can understand what he's doing but sometimes players like to keep ticking over."

    Inverness stick with the side that earned a fine 2-0 win at Motherwell last weekend, while Celtic make no fewer than 10 changes with Tuesday's Champions League play-off in mind.

    Kris Commons, dropped to the bench for the midweek draw in Maribor, is back in the starting line-up and there are places for teenagers Eoghan O'Connell and Liam Henderson.

    Both sides are without their regular captains as Richie Foran and Scott Brown battle back from injuries.

  144. Post update

    Good afternoon and welcome to another busy Saturday in Scotland's top flight. We've got a top of the table clash to start with as Celtic visit Inverness CT in the lunchtime kick-off.

    It's the Highlanders who lead the way, unbeaten in three matches, while Ronny Deila's men have a 100% record but have played a game less.

    Another five Premiership matches follow at 15:00 BST and we'll dip into the lower divisions with the odd update along the way.
