  1. Phew...goodbye for now

    Thanks for staying with us on the live as we waited to hear the reaction from Ian Cathro.

    So Celtic have extended their lead at the top of the Premiership, while Hearts have set up a mouthwatering Scottish Cup tie against Edinburgh rivals Hibs.

    Join us again on Friday when there is more Premiership action as Aberdeen host Dundee.

  2. 'Test of character passed'

    FT: Hearts 4-2 Raith Rovers

    Hearts head coach Ian Cathro was full of praise for his players after they came from behind to beat Raith Rovers.

     "A cup tie, a big game in the Scottish Cup with a lot of emotions involved," he said.

    "A lot of credit to Raith Rovers, they kept the game alive.

    "It was a massive test of character for us all and we've passed it.

    "It was one of the things that attracted me to the club was the talent that comes through and at one point we had six players on the pitch who have come through the academy.

    "We had to get through to the next round and we did and playing Hibs is perfect."

  3. 'It's a clear penalty'

    FT: Celtic 1-0 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright feels his side were denied a clear penalty in the defeat at Celtic Park.

    "I'm disappointed for the players because they put a lot into the game," he told BBC Scotland. "I thought we were excellent, caused them a few problems.

    "Ultimately, we get caught on a corner that is got to be disappointing from our point of view. 

    "Just a couple of minutes after that, we should get a penalty but we don't. I don't think my players could have given any more tonight.

    "How he (the referee) can't see it is beyond me. There's difficult decisions to give and there's easy decisions to give and that was an easy decision. 

    "It was right in front of him. If it's anywhere else on the pitch, it's a free-kick. Scott Brown quite clearly pushed Steven Anderson. Everybody seen it except the referee.

    "If I go in (to the referee's room), I'll probably get an answer, but it won't satisfy me, so I won't go in."

  5. 'We can't finish at 26'

    FT: Celtic 1-0 St Johnstone

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was delighted after his side matched the Lisbon Lions record of 26 games undefeated and recorded a 16th straight league victory - a new record for the club.

    "We achieved the three points," he told BBC Scotland. "To be 22 points ahead at this stage of the season, I'm very happy. The overall performance was very good. 

    "To match a record of over 50 years, when you think of the players that have played here, the teams that have played here, for us to equal that is a massive credit to the players.

    "They've done it, it's through their professionalism and work. We can't finish here, we have to keep pushing and try and set the record as high as we can.

    "Tonight, we should tip our hat to the players because they've been absolutely brilliant. I'm very proud of them and obviously on Scott Brown's 400th game as well. 

    "I'm pleased for Dedryck Boyata. It's a brilliant header."
