  1. Celtic stay top, Dons in pursuit, Thistle lose again

    What a week it's been for Celtic. After a thrilling Champions League draw with Manchester City in midweek, Brendan Rodgers' men secured a hard-earned three points with victory at Dundee to maintain their unbeaten start to the league season.

    Aberdeen's handsome victory over Kilmarnock kept them within four points of the champions, and left Killie just a point above the bottom.

    Partick Thistle remain bottom after going down to Rangers, who move up to fifth.

    St Johnstone's superb away form continued with victory over Ross County, and Inverness CT struck in stoppage time to snatch a point at Hamilton.

  2. Wright delight with Saints away form

    FT: Ross County 0-2 St Johnstone

    “Really satisfied with the performance. I thought first-half was as good as we’ve been this year. We were excellent and fully deserved to be 1-0 up. We finished the game of with a great goal. 

    "It’s a great start to the league for us, away from home as well. We went to Partick and won, went to Motherwell and won, had a good point at Hamilton, now we’ve come up here and got three points. It’s an excellent return from those away games.”

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright on BBC Radio Scotland

  3. 'We got what we deserved'

    FT: Ross County 0-2 St Johnstone

    “It was a disappointing day all round with the injuries and the result. I felt St Johnstone today won more individual than we did, picked up more second balls and were just slightly cuter than us on the day. 

    "We got what we deserved today and we’ve just got to take it on the chin and learn from it.”

    Ross County manager Jim McIntyre on BBC Radio Scotland 

  4. Foran hails 'never-say-die' attitude

    FT: Hamilton 1-1 Inverness CT

    "Yes (we were good value for the point) in terms of chances created. I thought we had the better chances, their keeper pulled off one or two decent saves, we had one cleared off the line so on chances alone I think we deserved a point. On overall play, I thought they were the better team.

    "We've scored a couple of late goals now so I always thought one was going to drop for us. I still believed in them boys and it's a great finish by Liam Polworth.

    "The spirit was great today. That never-say-die attitude, never giving up, going right to the final whistle was what got us the point today. I'm delighted with the lads."

    Inverness CT manager Richie Foran on BBC Radio Scotland

  5. 'We need to do better and see games out'

    FT: Hamilton 1-1 Inverness CT

    "For the seventh out of the eight games, I think, we've gone ahead - we've only managed to see it out once and win one game.

    "It's not enough, we know that, we need to do better, to see games out. I thought again we did enough to win the game. But obviously we got hit again in injury time, which was disappointing.

    "We didn't lose the goal because tactically we were unaware or were undone. Sometimes all you can say is maybe Lady Luck isn't on our side at the minute."

    Hamilton manager Martin Canning on BBC Radio Scotland

  6. A 'sparkling' Dons display

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-4 Aberdeen

    "It was a great away performance. We were dominant in both boxes and scored some great goals. Some of our play was sparkling. 

    "(on the penalty) I don't think my player committed a foul. I thought the keeper had it, then he didn't, then he pulls James down. Whether or not he can score from that position is up for a debate.

    "But it's wrong to dwell on the penalty when we scored three goals afterwards."

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland

  7. GOAL St Mirren 0-1 Falkirk

    Craig Sibbald

    A deflected free-kick from Craig Sibbald gives Falkirk the lead in Paisley.

  8. St Mirren v Falkirk

    Live on BBC Alba

    The Championship clash between St Mirren and Falkirk kicked off at 17:15. You can follow all the action on BBC Alba and you can access the Alba coverage via our highlights tab at the top of this page.

  9. 'We folded like a pack of cards'

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-4 Aberdeen

    “In my opinion it isn’t (a penalty) but we can’t change the referee’s mind. We had to just move on and we didn’t. 

    "In the second-half we folded like a pack of cards. For the second week in a row it’s been men against boys. 

    "It’s been a tough week for us and a real wake up call to be honest. It’s a terrible way to go into the international break. Long time to stew on it.”

    Kilmarnock manager Lee Clark on BBC Radio Scotland

  10. Johnston no-show averts protest

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-4 Aberdeen

    John Barnes

    BBC Scotland at Rugby Park

    The reason there was a lack of protest from the Killie fans towards director Michael Johnston was because he did not turn up at the game.

    He was missing from his seat in the directors box and although there was a chant of "Johnston must go" six minutes into the game from Killie supporters. 

    When they noticed Johnston was absent they thought they would just turn their attention to supporting the team. Johnston did attend the club's board meeting on Friday.

  12. Dons up to second, Thistle still bottom

    Celtic's victory against Dundee leaves them four points clear at the top of the Premiership this evening with a game in hand over their nearest rivals.

    Aberdeen move back above Hearts into second after a thumping win at Kilmarnock.

    At the bottom Partick Thistle remain without a win since the opening day after going down 2-0 at Rangers. Kilmarnock and Dundee are just a point above them though.

    Premiership table

    Rangers 2-0 Partick Thistle

    After a run of four winless Premiership games Rangers get back to winning way with a routine victory over Partick Thistle at Ibrox. Niko Kranjcar and Andy Halliday with the goals for Mark Warburton's men, who move up to fifth in the table.

    It's now six games without a win for Thistle, who remain rock bottom of the table.


    Ross County 0-2 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone remain in fourth after victory at Victoria Park, but it's five matches without a win for County, who drop out of the top six.


    Hamilton 1-1 Inverness CT

    Ali Crawford almost snatches the win at the death for Hamilton, but Liam Polworth's ensures Inverness leave New Douglas Park with a point.

  16. GOAL Hamilton 1-1 Inverness CT

    Liam Polworth

    Into stoppage time and Inverness get a leveller. It's a sickener for Hamilton, who lost a lead late on against St Johnstone last week.

    This time it's Liam Polworth, who fires home from outside the box and is then booked for his celebration.

  17. FULL-TIME Kilmarnock 0-4 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen are back up to second, with Adam Rooney on target twice in what is their 11th consecutive win over Kilmarnock.

    The home side will feel aggrieved about the penalty for the opening goal but they were second best by a long, long way.

  18. Blow for Accies

    Hamilton Accies 1-0 Inverness CT

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Sport Scotland at New Douglas Park

    That's a blow for Accies, losing keeper Remi Matthews for the final 10 minutes. They're trying to keep just a second clean sheet of the season. Robbie Thomson, with his first touch pulls off a great save to prevent a Caley Thistle equaliser.

  19. County down to 10 men

    Ross County 0-2 St Johnstone

    It looks all over for County, who have to end the game with 10 men as Liam Boyce is unable to recover from injury with manager Jim McIntyre having already made all three subs.

  20. Eighteen in hospital after Rangers fans coach crash

    Away from the football there is some dreadful news as 18 people have been taken to hospital after a coach carrying Rangers supporters overturned in East Ayrshire.
