    Thanks for your company today, but our focus now turns to the international scene, with Scotland due to face Canada in Wednesday's friendly at Easter Road.

    Join us then as we provide more live coverage.

  2. Watch the highlights

    You can watch Celtic's victory - and that contender for goal of the season from Faissal El Bakhtaoui - on Sportscene on BBC Two Scotland at 18:00 GMT.

    The relationship between Hearts head coach Ian Cathro and director of football Craig Levein will be a hot topic for pundits Steven Thompson and Michael Stewart.

    Highlights of yesterday's Premiership games will be on the website then too, with the Dundee v Celtic highlights to follow at midnight.

  3. So close but so far for Dee

    That's the third time this season that Dundee have lost out to Celtic by a single goal this season.

    But, despite the close call, Celtic march on relentlessly and are now undefeated in 36 domestic games this season.

    The gap between themselves and Aberdeen is now back to 25 points with nine games remaining and they could clinch the title in their next Premiership game against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday 2 April.

    Celtic could be crowned champions if the Dons fail to secure at least a point against Dundee two days earlier.

  4. 'Mixture of good and ugly from Celtic'

    You can now read Chris McLaughlin's impressions of the game at Dens Park.

  5. 'We were excellent' - Hartley

    FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

    Dundee manager Paul Hartley on BBC Radio Scotland: "I felt, especially the second half, we were excellent.

    "They never really cut us open and it was a bit of sucker punch with the opening goal.

    "We conceded a poor second goal and we go 4-4-2 and had a few chances.

    "The players never gave in and kept going.

    "El Bakhtaoui scored a lot of goals for Dunfermline, but he has jumped two leagues and we knew it was never going to be easy for him, but he does have that in his locker - it is just consistency he needs."

  6. 'Players did magnificently' - Rodgers

    FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers on BBC Radio Scotland: "We've seen Dundee of late and they have picked up of late.

    "They make things very difficult and we knew it would be a tough game.

    "But we deserved the win and made it tougher at the end than it should have been.

    "We had chances to make it more comfortable and we gave away a poor goal fromm our position, although it was a great finish.

    "They put in some high balls into our box at the end, but the players did magnificently to defend that."

  7. Worry for Dundee

    FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

    That defeat, of course, means Dundee are still left looking behind them.

    They are only six points ahead Hamilton Academical, who slipped to the bottom of the Premiership table after Inverness Caledonian Thistle picked up a point in the Highland derby against Ross County.

  8. Get Involved

    @bbcsportscot & facebook.com/bbcsportscotland

    Sean McNeill : Nice to watch Dundee actually play football rather than sitting 10 behind the ball. Cracking goal for the Dees as well  

    Paul McFadden : Tough game! Nobody in Scotland are good enough to beat us.

    Stephen Hall : Dundee are a decent team now. Gave Celtic a real battle  

  9. Armstrong to face Canada?

    Quote Message: I would be amazed if Stuart Armstrong does not start against Canada. If he does not play for Scotland now considering how he is playing, when will he play? from Jim Duffy BBC Radio Scotland pundit

  12. Focus returns to Dens Park

    FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

    Having lost today, Dundee can have another say in the destiny of the title in their next match, at home to Aberdeen on Friday 31 March.

    Should they beat the Dons, Celtic will be confirmed as champions.

  13. FULL-TIME Dundee 1-2 Celtic

    Faissal El Bakhtaoui's superb strike ensured an exciting finish at Dens Park, but Celtic move to within another win of securing a sixth straight Scottish league title after picking up the three points.

    Dundee remain in eighth, two points behind Kilmarnock, after a third straight defeat.

    Dundee 1-2 Celtic

    After scoring a host of goals for Dunfermline Athletic in League One, Faissal El Bakhtaoui has found it difficult making the step up to the to flight with Dunbee.

    That is only his third goal in 24 appearances since his summer move, but what a strike that was.
