All times stated are UK

  1. Good night

    That's all for tonight folks. Many thanks for your company.

    We'll be back with more Scottish Premiership action on Saturday, starting with the early kick off at Pittodrie. If Celtic win at Aberdeen is the title race over?

  2. Gordon 'dodged a bullet'

    FT: Ross County 0-4 Celtic

    Ross County boss Jim McIntyre thinks Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon's challenge on Liam Boyce was "reckless".

    "It's the second time he's dodged a bullet against us after the one on Jackson Irvine last season." he tells BBC Sportsound.

  3. Struggling Dundee 'not good enough'

    FT: Dundee 0-2 Partick Thistle

    Oh dear. Dundee boss Paul Hartley sounds very low on BBC Sportsound:

    “It was a real disappointing performance from us, it wasn’t good enough and we didn’t deserve anything from the game. We had a little spell in the first half for 15 minutes when I felt we were okay but overall the performance wasn’t good enough. We have to look at a team for Saturday and try to pick the players up and try and get a result from somewhere we are on a bad run we are in a position where we are in trouble but we have to remain positive. We are not winning games and that cannot continue."

  4. Hearts ache after off-key defeat

    FT: Kilmarnock 2-0 Hearts

    Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson on BBC Sportsound:

    "We didn't deserve to take anything from the match. Give Kilmarnock credit, they pressed us high, but we were too easy to play against.

    "We had two great chances to score and didn't take them, so that's disappointing."

  5. Rodgers happy with Celtic mentality

    FT: Ross County 0-4 Celtic

    Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers sticks to his standard line of "there is room for improvement" but he is happy with three more points after making eight changes to his team.

    "It was a tough night for us despite the scoreline," he tells BBC Radio Scotland. "Ross County go direct and tested our defence.

    "I said to the players before the game that good teams start quick and finish strong. Our intensity and physicality got us the late goals. I was pleased with the mentality. We've had a tough run and that's why we made so many changes."

  6. Killie win delights Clark

    FT: Kilmarnock 2-0 Hearts

    KIlmarnock manager Lee Clark is celebrating his first home league win in six-and-a-half months. 

    "We scored two superb goals," he tells BBC Sportsound. "Souleymane Coulibaly is a real showman. The fans love him. He's going to have his own montage of goals-of-the-season.

    "The manner of the win against quality opponents tells me we are going in the right direction. We just need to keep working hard."

  7. Goalkeeper worry for Jags

    FT: Dundee 0-2 Partick Thistle

    Jags manager Alan Archibald tells BBC Radio Scotland that goalkeeper Ryan Scully has been taken to hopsital with a suspected dislocated shoulder

    "Fingers crossed," he says. "But it doesn't look good."

    Regular number one Tomas Cerny is currently sidelined through injury.

  9. Gordon fortunate to avoid red?

    FT: Ross County 0-4 Celtic

    The Sportsound team are busy discussing Craig Gordon's robust challenge on Liam Boyce. Most are of the opinion that the Celtic goalkeeper was lucky to avoid a red card.

    "Any other player committing that foul would walk," is the widespread view.

    Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner sees it differently...

    Craig Gordon clatters into Liam Boyce
  10. Rangers drop more points

    FT: Rangers 1-1 St Johnstone

    Rangers remain unbeaten at home for 13 months but St Johnstone are the third team to leave Ibrox with a point this season, following Hamilton and Ross County.

    Saints were the last team to win in Govan, in a 2015 League Cup tie.

    Rangers drew 1-1 at home to St Johnstone
  11. Celtic cruising to six in a row?

    FT: Ross County 0-4 Celtic

    A much-changed Celtic certainly didn't get an easy ride in Dingwall but the champions do appear to be cantering away with the league.

    Brendan Rodgers' men go to Pittodrie on Saturday. Can nearest challengers Aberdeen bring their unbeaten run to halt?

    The Dons didn't look too hot last night, losing at Hamilton Accies. 

    Celtic won 4-0 at Ross County

  12. FULL-TIME Dundee 0-2 Partick Thistle

    The Dundee horror show continues. That's six defeats in a row for the Premiership's bottom club, who are now three points adrift.

    A comfortable evening for Thistle as they picked up just their second win of the season to move up two places to ninth in the table.

  13. FULL-TIME Rangers 1-1 St Johnstone

    Honours even at Ibrox, with the home side creating the best chances before the interval and the pattern reversed in the second half.

    Saints leapfrog Hearts into third spot, with Rangers staying put in fifth place.

  14. FULL-TIME Kilmarnock 2-0 Hearts

    The Killie fans are in good voice, celebrating a rare home success. Lee Clark's side have amassed seven points from their last three matches and nudge up to seventh place after a thoroughly deserved victory.

    Hearts had their eye on second place before kick off but drop to fourth after a poor display.

  15. FULL-TIME Ross County 0-4 Celtic

    Celtic stretch their lead at the top of the pile to seven points with a game in hand over nearest challengers Aberdeen.

    The scoreline is very harsh on the home side, who went toe-to-toe with the champions for long spells and created several good openings.

  16. GOAL Ross County 0-4 Celtic

    Moussa Dembele, 90+3 mins

    The champions rub dirt into Ross County's wounds as Moussa Dembele taps home from a yard out to complete the scoring.

    4-0 looks like a rout but it doesn't tell the tale of this match in which County have tested the champions for long spells.

  17. FULL-TIME Motherwell 0-3 Inverness CT

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Fir Park

    Inverness had to work hard to match Motherwell, which provided the platform to take advantage of some scrappy defending. There was quality in Liam Polworth's third goal, but by then many home fans had already left Fir Park. A sore night for Motherwell, but an uplifting one for Inverness.

  18. GOAL Ross County 0-3 Celtic

    Scott Sinclair, 90+1

    Patrick Roberts fires in a shot from the edge of the box which is partially blocked, but the ball loops up in to the air and is ruthlessly dispatched on the volley by Scott Sinclair.

    Really harsh on County but Celtic have taken their chances late on.

  19. Double trouble for Thistle

    Dundee 0-2 Partick Thistle

    Abdul Osman and Ryan Scully go off looking in a lot of pain and Partick Thistle send on substitute goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann for his debut, and David Wilson, for the last few minutes.
