  1. Goodbye

    That just about does it for today as the top six brought the Premiership season to a close.

    St Johnstone secure fourth spot in the table and a potential European place, should Inverness CT win the Scottish Cup.

    Russell Anderson calls time on his playing career with a lap of honour at Pittodrie and says he couldn't have asked for a better send off.

    United fans will have the bragging rights over the summer after a thumping victory in the Dundee derby...

    Celtic boss Ronny Deila and assistant John Collins

    And Ronny Deila says he's hungry for further silverware after guiding Celtic to the club's fourth consecutive league title.

    Thanks for your company this afternoon. We're back on Thursday for the first leg of the Premiership play-off between Rangers and Motherwell at Ibrox.

    Hope you can join us then. Highlights of all this weekend's games on Sportscene, BBC 1 Scotland tonight. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Cheers.

  2. 'It was a nice way to finish'

    Retiring Aberdeen defender Russell Anderson

    "It would've been nice to have gone out with a win but unfortunately it wasn't to be.

    "Like a lot of these big days when they come around, there's a big build up to them and you spend long time waiting for it and before you know it, it's over."

    Russell Anderson

    "The reception I got before and afterwards was everything I could've hoped for. So, it was a nice way to finish, albeit we lost the game."

  3. 'We wanted to stay in the league - we've done that'

    Dundee boss Paul Hartley

    "We didn't have that final pass, final shot or cutting edge today that United had

    "We'll be younger next season with more energy in the team. I'm delighted with the guys we've brought in and want one or two others.

    "First and foremost, we wanted to stay in the league and we've done that. Next season will be more difficult."

    Dundee boss Paul Hartley
  4. 'Excellent' in Dundee derby

    Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara

    "I thought we were excellent today and could've scored one or two more."

    Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara

    "The most important thing is about building and moving forward; making sure we can keep our players for longer."

  5. Van Dijk 'is going to be here'

    Celtic boss Ronny Deila

    "As I said from the first moment, we want to improve and want progress.

    "This stadium is nothing without the supporters; we're going to do this together."

    Asked about the future of defender Virgil van Dijk, who has been linked with a move in the summer, Deila says: "He's going to be here.

    Celtic boss Ronny Deila and defender Virgil van Dijk

    "He is not going anywhere before the qualifiers. Hopefully he is going to be here for a long, long time. You never know in football but he is going to be here for the qualifiers."

  6. 'We want Champions League football'

    Celtic assistant boss John Collins

    "We want to keep our top players and the supporters want them here. We'll enjoy today and come back in four weeks' time for the European qualifiers. We want to be in the Champions League.

    "Ronny Deila is focused, driven and wants to take the club forward. He's a younger version of me! He's never happy and wants to get better..."

  7. 'A brilliant season'

    Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon

    "It's an incredible comeback story and I don't want it to end. It's been difficult [for Ronny Deila] to come into such a big club, but he's been brilliant all season."

    Celtic lift the trophy
  8. Saints plaudits

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland

    "Most managers talk guff when they say their team hasn't got the credit they deserve. In St Johnstone's case, it's probably true. Fine season..."

  9. Title celebrations

    Celtic lift the Premiership trophy as the ticker tape flutters around the stadium under a blue sky in the east end of Glasgow.

    Celtic supporters
  10. 'This is a great day'

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    "This is a great, great day. I want to thank everybody and the support. I'm looking forward to next season."

  11. Medal time

    Celtic players come back out onto the pitch to collect their medals after securing a fourth consecutive league title - 17 points ahead of nearest challengers Aberdeen.

  12. Silverware

    Celtic are preparing for the trophy presentation following that victory over Inverness CT.

    Leigh Griffiths
  13. Dons tribute for Anderson

    Russell Anderson, to tumultuous applause, takes his bow before the Aberdeen supporters inside Pittodrie as he reflects on his final game in Dons colours.

    "A well-deserved bow," says our man at Pittodrie Scott Davie.

  14. Cup dreams

    Inverness CT boss John Hughes tells BBC Sportsound's Chick "Chico" Young that, despite disappointment over losing five goals at Celtic Park today, all attention turns to next weekend's Scottish Cup final against Falkirk.

  15. Demolition derby

    Despite a Dundee derby demolition, United fail to dislodge St Johnstone from fourth spot but nonetheless an impressive end to the season for Jackie McNamara's troops.


    Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

  17. Saints secure fourth spot

    Tommy Wright's St Johnstone finish fourth in the Premiership, meaning they will play in the Europa League should Inverness CT win the Scottish Cup next weekend.


    Celtic 5-0 Inverness CT

    Aberdeen 0-1 St Johnstone

  19. Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

    Nadir Ciftci performs a showy jig out on the right, dancing over the ball as if it were on fire. Gary Irvine is sufficiently unimpressed to foul him and from the free-kick, Ciftci picks up possession and dinks in a Rabona-style cross for Ryan McGowan to volley wide.

  20. GOAL

    Celtic 5-0 Inverness CT (Commons)

    It's five for Celtic as substitute Kris Commons capitalises on good work by Emilio Izaguirre to thunder home from just outside the penalty area. Cracking strike!

  21. Huddle up...

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "The Leigh Griffiths goal sets off a massive huddle inside Celtic Park. The hacks look awkwardly at their laptops to avoid eye contact as the fans in front turn round to bounce around."

  22. Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

    John Souttar shows he is more than a mere one-dimensional defender as he bursts into the Dees' box and tries a cheeky backheel six yards from goal, but keeper Kyle Letheren smothers his effort.

  23. Dundee Utd 3-0 Dundee

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "United very much in command here in front of over ten thousand of a crowd. But that St Johnstone score has quietened the Utd fans a shade.

    "Emotional day for Dave Roy next to me in the media gantry. Stepping down after 25 years of unpaid work at the Dark blues filming their games home and away. A real unsung hero at Dens and a great bluenose."

  24. Aberdeen 0-1 St Johnstone

    As Aberdeen seek a response, Joe Shaughnessy, who will join St Johnstone in the summer, has a pop and his shot is tipped over by Alan Mannus.

  25. GOAL

    Celtic 4-0 Inverness CT (Griffiths)

    The champions are turning the screw now. James Vincent coughs up possession allowing Kris Commons to thread a great ball through to Leigh Griffiths and, with a swish of his left boot, the striker makes it 4-0 to Celtic.

  26. Dundee Utd 3-0 Dundee

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "Ryan McGuigan powerful header clicks the bar with Kyle Letheren sprawling to get a touch, but danger averted for Dundee..."

  27. GOAL

    Celtic 3-0 Inverness CT (Scepovic)

    Stefan Scepovic making a late bid for Celtic stardom after a year in the wilderness. His second of the match brings the Celtic fans back to their feet, collecting James Forrest's pass and netting the home side's third.

    Stefan Scepovic celebrates
  28. GOAL

    Aberdeen 0-1 St Johnstone (Kane)

    Substitute Chris Kane marks his introduction with a fine finish. Streaking away from the Dons defence on the right a mere 30 seconds after coming on and he drills a shot low beyond Scott Brown.

    Tommy Wright's men are back in the driving seat for fourth place and a potential European spot.

  29. Dundee Utd 3-0 Dundee

    Dundee defender James McPake is yellow carded by referee Bobby Madden for a late challenge on United's two-goal hero Nadir Ciftci.

  30. Dundee's Nadir

    Dundee have been well and truly Ciftci'd this afternoon...

    Dundee United striker Nadir Ciftci
  31. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    Boos ring out at Pittodre as Russell Anderson is booked on his final Aberdeen appearance for a foul on Murray Davidson.

  32. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    Saints substitute Brian Graham has his head in his hands as his shot from 18 yards rolls wide of the mark.

  33. Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "It's been a dark few months for Jackie McNamara but signs here that the corner may have been turned. 3-0 up and looking very comfortable. With the signings Paul Hartley has made though, Dundee will be a much more attacking outfit next season."

  34. Gordon's Kitchen Nightmares?

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "Celtic back on top in terms of possession but it's all gone a little flat. Craig Gordon looks like a man trying to decide what's for dinner..."

  35. Celtic 2-0 Inverness CT

    Celtic striker Stefan Scepovic looks in the mood for more goals but he narrowly misses out on a long ball behind the Inverness CT defence as it trundles out for a goal kick.

  36. Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "There's only one team in Dundee goes the war cry from Utd fans. It's a long way back for the Dees now..."

  37. United relishing derby day

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "A cool finish from Spittal, racing onto a through ball, drawing keeper forward and slotting home from 16 yards..."

  38. Celtic 2-0 Inverness CT

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "Inverness CT having more of a go at the start of this second half but Celtic look to be in second gear..."

  39. GOAL

    Dundee United 3-0 Dundee (Spittal)

    Blair Spittal wins a challenge in the centre circle, gets back to his feet and runs towards the Dundee goal to pick up a through ball from John Rankin and slot the ball calmly past Kyle Letheren. United are running riot...

  40. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    Aberdeen counter, with Cammy Smith bursting through the middle at a rapid rate of knots, but Tam Scobbie is able to get a couple of studs on the ball with a sliding challenge on the edge of the box.

  41. Celtic 2-0 Inverness CT

    Inverness' players may have received the proverbial flee in the ear from John Hughes at the break. They look more menacing at the start of the second half. Can they get a goal back?

  42. KICK-OFF

    Here we go in the second half after a quick cuppa and a Star Bar...

  43. Dundee United 2-0 Dundee

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "Dundee with plenty of the ball but lacking a net threat. New signings will change that for next season I think."


    Celtic 2-0 Inverness CT

    Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    Dundee United 2-0 Dundee


    Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone goalkeeper Alan Mannus is at full-stretch to touch a raking, long-range shot from Jonny Hayes on to the post.

    Still we wait for a goal at Pittodrie like excitable children waiting to open presents on Christmas Day...

  46. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    It's an emotional day for Russell Anderson at Pittodrie...

    Aberdeen defender Russell Anderson
  47. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    A swift break from the Dons, with Niall McGinn and Jonny Hayes scampering forward. However, it's all a bit of an anti-climax as the latter scuffs a weak shot at goalkeeper Alan Mannus.

  48. Dundee Utd 2-0 Dundee

    Dundee playmaker Paul McGowan changes gear to drive the long way to goal round United midfielder John Rankin but his shot is charged away for a corner kick, which United clear...for a corner kick...which United eventually clear completely.

  49. Dundee Utd 2-0 Dundee

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "Dundee force two corners in a row but can't make anything of them. United are looking solid at the back..."

  50. Minds elsewhere?

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "The Caley Thistle players looking a little tackle shy this afternoon. Can you blame them? #ScottishCupFinal.

    "The Meekings-gate ghost makes an appearance at Celtic Park as Virgil Van Dijk's header looks to be handled inside the box by Danny Williams. John Hughes turns to the Celtic fans with a raised eyebrow and a wry smile..."


    The Dundee fans howl for a penalty as Irishman Sean Dillon clears a ball into the box by bashing it off the chest, it would seem, of Ryan McGowan. The wild-eyed visitors are adamant the Australian used an arm there.

  52. CLOSE!

    Nice footwork from Jonny Hayes as the Aberdeen midfielder cuts in from the left and his driven shot is deflected narrowly wide.

  53. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone striker Steven MacLean is booked after a taking a hopeful tumble in the penalty box.

  54. GOAL

    Dundee United 2-0 Dundee (Ciftci pen)

    Nadir Ciftci makes no mistake from the spot, sending Kyle Letheren the wrong way to double the home team's lead.


    Celtic appeal unsuccessfully for a penalty as Virgil van Dijk's goalbound header appears to be handled by Inverness's Danny Williams but referee Kevin Clancy is having none of it.


    United win a penalty as Dundee defender Thomas Konrad brings down Nadir Ciftci.

  57. Dundee United 1-0 Dundee

    Good stuff from Dundee as Greg Stewart torments Chris Erskine on the goalline out on the left, works himself clear and lays the ball on for Stephen McGinn to side-foot at goal where United's big Pole Radoslaw Cierzniak makes a confident block.

  58. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    Defender Steven Anderson is well placed to stop a Cammy Smith prod from rolling into the net as Aberdeen threaten in a congested penalty box, a weak effort from Mark Reynolds then ends up in the arms of Alan Mannus.


    Wonderful skill by Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton who steps away from a closing Inverness CT defender with a lovely Zidane-style pirouette. Think pressing LT, X and hitting the right stick up on your X-Box controller and that's what the Israeli did.

  60. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    Saints get the first real glimpse at goal but Michael O'Halloran can only hammer his shot into the side-netting.


    'Easy, easy, easy...'

    Dundee's German defender Thomas Konrad employs the tactics of a 1970s Saturday afternoon TV wrestler to halt the progress of Chris Erskine as he went bursting through the Dark Blues' half.

    He made no attempt to play the ball but did manage to haul his opponent to the turf...and is rightly booked.

  62. Dundee Utd 1-0 Dundee

    Fair enough, Ryan McGowan. The United defender has put himself about in a forceful fashion in the opening 20 minutes but simply dusted himself down after being caught with two heavy Dundee tackles in quick succession. Count to 10...

  63. Dundee United 1-0 Dundee

    Good chance for Dundee with a free kick 25 yards out but Tankulic hammers it right into Utd wall.

  64. Beach balls forked

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "First boos of the afternoon ring out here at Celtic Park. The jeering reserved for the stewards with the forks who are bursting the beach balls."

  65. Johansen at the double

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "This could be a very long afternoon for Inverness as player of the year Stefan Johnansen blasts into the net after an inch-perfect cross from Izaguirre."

  66. Dundee United 1-0 Dundee

    Ryan McGowan's long throw-ins from the right for Dundee United have the ballistic impact of Mons Meg in its prime, but so far the Dark Blues have managed to bravely put a head in the way to clear the danger.

  67. GOAL

    Celtic 2-0 Inverness CT (Johansen)

    Celtic double their lead through Stefan Johansen following a flowing move which slices Inverness down their right side. Emilio Izaguirre gallops down the left and his low centre is swept home by Johansen.

    "This could get quite nasty today," warns BBC Sportsound commentator Liam McLeod.

    Stefan Johansen celebrates
  68. 'United fired up'

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "Ciftci's goal has fired United up. Dundee had looked the sharper side in the opening stages but Ciftci clinically taking advantage of Letheren's failure to clear the ball. He'll be a big loss if he doesn't accept new contract."

  69. Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

    A big cheer for Russell Anderson as the soon-to-retire Aberdeen defender blocks a shot from Michael O'Halloran. Nothing in the way of clear chances at Pittodrie so far.

  70. Inverness struggling

    BBC Sportsound pundit Pat Bonner

    "Celtic are dominating things and have Inverness CT pinned inside their own half."

  71. Celtic on the attack

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    The home side are clearly in the mood here at Celtic Park - Tremarco clears a Virgil van Dijk effort off the line.

  72. GOAL

    Dundee United 1-0 Dundee (Ciftci)

    Chris Erskine clips a ball through for Nadir Ciftci to chase and he benefits from a horrible slip by Dundee goalie Kyle Letheren and the striker is able to stroll through and roll the ball into the visitors' net.

    United draw first blood in the Dundee derby: game on!

    Nadir Ciftci celebrates
  73. Dundee Utd 0-0 Dundee

    Dundee have started their derby against United the stronger, winning a corner and forcing home keeper Radoslaw Cierzniak into early action with a dangerous ball into the box.

  74. Scepovic with rare goal

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "Celtic Park erupts after just five minutes. Stefan Scepovic turns the ball into the net on a rare start. His fifth goal in just eight starts."

  75. GOAL

    Celtic 1-0 Inverness CT (Scepovic)

    Celtic take the lead

    The Premiership champions break the deadlock with a goal of stunning simplicity. Stefan Johansen's free kick into the box is headed on by Virgil van Dijk and a combination of Stefan Scepovic and Nir Bitton finish the job. Scepovic is credited with the goal.

  76. Bright start

    James Forrest scuttles down the right flank at a fair rate but his centre fails to trouble the Scottish Cup finalists.

    A bright start by both sides at Celtic Park.

  77. KICK-OFF

    Here we go! Goals please and plenty of them...

  78. 'A tremendous roar'

    Chris McLaughlin

    BBC Sport

    "The sun is shining here at Celtic Park and the champions take to the pitch to a tremendous roar. Inverness provide the guard of honour."

  79. Final day - Your memories

  81. Dundee top dogs

    Jim Spence

    BBC Sport

    "Final Dundee derby of the season. A European spot still possible for Utd while Dundee are looking to finish a good season in style and start to try to assert themselves as the city's top dogs..."

  82. Inverness team changes

    Inverness CT boss John Hughes, with one eye on next week's Scottish Cup final, also makes six changes with Nick Ross, Lewis Horner, Carl Tremarco, Danny Williams, Liam Polworth and Tarmo Kink coming in.

  83. 'Cup final places up for grabs'

    Inverness CT boss John Hughes

    "We have a team good enough to compete against Celtic and there are places up for grabs ahead of next week [the Scottish Cup final against Falkirk]."

  84. Team news at Pittodrie

    Russell Anderson makes his first appearance for exactly nine months - and the last of his career - for the Dons.

    The retiring Aberdeen skipper has been out with a knee injury since the Dons beat the Perth side on 23 August and has a farewell start along with Nicky Low and Joe Shaughnessy, who are moving to Dundee and St Johnstone respectively.
