  1. Phew and goodbye

    Partick Thistle v Celtic (Thursday 19:45)

    Caley Thistle have set up a humdinger of a final day to the bottom six on Saturday.

    They are a point behind Hamilton as they host Motherwell, while the Accies are at home to Dundee.

    One side will be automatically relegated and the other face a play-off against either Falkirk or Dundee United.

    Before then, join us again tomorrow night as Partick Thistle attempt to prevent champions Celtic continuing their unbeaten domestic record for the season in their Glasgow derby.

    Bye from me and see you next time.

  2. Hearts 'completely unacceptable' in first half - Cathro

    FT: St Johnstone 1-0 Hearts

    Hearts head coach Ian Cathro was left to reflect on a 13th defeat in his 25 games in charge since succeeding Robbie Neilson.

    "I think we certainly deserved a draw, but we have to reflect on a first and second half that were completely different," he told BBC Radio Scotland.

    "We started off the first half OK, but we became comfortable and started to fall off them and we were far too passive in our pressing.

    "A large part of that first half was completely unacceptable.

    "In the second half, the intensity was better and I don't think there was any way we deserved to lose that game."

  5. Dons superiority at Ibrox

    FT: Rangers 1-2 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen consolidated their position as the second best side in the country with a 2-1 win over third-placed Rangers at Ibrox, ending a 41-game run without a victory there.

    Here's our report on the game.

  6. 'Another good night' for Saints

    FT: St Johnstone 1-0 Hearts

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright is understandably a happy man after a 1-0 victory over Hearts that lifts his side to within six points of Rangers, who they host on the final day.

    Wright told BBC Radio Scotland: "It was a good performance. There were many moments where we could have extended the lead.

    "In the first half, we probably passed the ball as well as we have all season.

    "In the second half, we got a bit panicky and went a wee bit too long, but overall we had a really good night against them again.

    "We have lost players in the past and we have had a bit of time to prepare for Danny Swanson going.

    " We are speaking to one or two people and hopefully we will get something sorted to get more quality added to the squad."

  7. Goodwin relief at 1-0 defeat

    FT: Brechin City 1-0 Alloa Athletic

    Alloa Athletic manager Jim Goodwin is relieved not to have suffered a heavier defeat in their Championship play-off final first leg against Brechin.

    "Brechin were the better team and played the conditions better than we did," he told BBC Scotland.

    "They picked up more second balls and competed.

    "We're a passing team and the pitch is not conducive to the way we want to play. We know we need to be better.

    "To be honest, I'm delighted to go away with a 1-0 defeat with the way the game was going."

  8. Dods eyes 'miracle'

    FT: Brechin City 1-0 Alloa Athletic

    Brechin City manager Darren Dods is delighted that his side, who finished fourth in League One, are in pole position going into the second leg of their Championship play-off final against Alloa, who were runners-up, thanks to Elliot Ford's goal.

    "Elliot Ford has come into the team in the last few weeks and he's done excellent," Dods told BBC Scotland.

    "It was a great run into the box and Finn Graham did well too.

    "A few of our players stay in Glasgow and Kilmarnock and won't be home until late tonight then up at 7am tomorrow, so they'll need good sleeps on Thursday and Friday to be ready for the weekend.

    "Championship football would be a miracle."

  9. 'Performance not acceptable' - McCann

    FT: Dundee 0-2 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

    Dundee manager Neil McCann was left angry about the display that led to him losing his first game in charge of the Dens Park side.

    "I am very disappointed in the performance," he told BBC Radio Scotland.

    "Inverness were quite aggressive, but we knew that was going to be the case and we were so sloppy at the goals.

    "We have worked hard at being hard to beat and maybe that was indicative of what was happening before I came here, but it was uncharacteristic in my time here.

    "They have been remarkable in the last three games and that has made us safe from relegation, but that performance is not acceptable."

  11. McInnes' Dons make their point

    FT: Rangers 1-2 Aberdeen

    Over at Ibrox, the mind games were over and Aberdeen's Derek McInnes has had the last laugh, for this season at least, over counterpart Pedro Caixinha.

    Annoyed by Caixinha's suggestion that the Dons' days as Scotland's second best side were numbered, his side showed their continued superiority over Rangers.

    The gap between the sides is back to nine points as Aberdeen made sure that they would finish second for a third season running.

  12. 'All pressure on Hamilton' - Foran

    FT: Dundee 0-2 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

    Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Richie Foran on BBC Radio Scotland: "I thought it was real mature, professional, well-organised performance.

    "Defensively, we were magnificent.

    "I just look forward rather than wondering why it didn't happen in the past.

    "It now puts massive pressure on Hamilton. It is a big game for them on Saturday.

    "It was important to get that result for the supporters.

    "It is a massive game on Saturday and one we look forward to.

    "All the pressure now is on Hamilton's shoulders and we'll see how they deal with it."

  13. Hearts 'have to rip this team up'

    FT: St Johnstone 1-0 Hearts

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser at McDiarmid Park

    Quote Message: St Johnstone were the better side. Hearts got better in the second half, but it was another poor performance overall. You can't start a game at half-time. It is simply not good enough. Hearts have got to forget about this season, start again and rip this team up

  15. FULL-TIME

    Rangers 1-2 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen end their near 26-year wait for a win at Ibrox.

    Goals from Graeme Shinnie and Ryan Christie give the Dons their first away win over Rangers since September 1991.

    Martyn Waghorn replied for Rangers, but they sustain defeat in their final home match this season.

    The Dons become only the second side - the other being champions Celtic - to win at Ibrox during this campaign.

    Aberdeen celebrate
  16. FULL-TIME Forfar 2-1 Peterhead

    Forfar make Peterhead pay for the second-half sending off of on-loan Partick Thistle defender Michael Mullin.

    Having come back from behind in their semi-final against Annan, the Loons do the same again to take a narrow lead into the second leg of their League One final.

  17. FULL-TIME St Johnstone 1-0 Hearts

    Things are not getting any better for Hearts head coach Ian Cathro.

    His side slump to another defeat as St Johnstone deservedly confirm their place as the fourth-best in Scotland thanks to Chris Kane's first-half strike.

    There's been a 21-point swing between these sides since Cathro took charge. They were nine points ahead of Saints at the time.

  18. FULL-TIME Dundee 0-2 Inverness CT

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    Not too many onlookers backed Inverness CT to reach the play-off place, but they've given themselves a real chance now.

    They were impressive all night. Clincial in the opening stages and defensively brilliant, blocking, challenging, simply doing anything to keep Dundee at bay.

    Just one point behind Hamilton now, you wonder if the pressure is now on Martin Canning's side going into the final fixtures.

    Richie Foran has found something, just at the right time.
