  2. Killie 'were the better team' - McCulloch

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-1 Hearts

    Kilmarnock manager Lee McCulloch, after his side's second straight home league defeat of the season: "I thought we were the better team. It was a sloppy goal to lose after five minutes but that was a bit of a wake-up call for us and after that I thought we were a lot better for the rest of the match.

    "We were a little bit unlucky with Rory McKenzie's chance and another couple of half-chances to put crosses in, but I thought we sort of dominated and it is a little bit hard to take. But we need to dust ourselves down and go again.

    "Hearts are a definite top-four side in this league and to play the way we did for 85 minutes against them that is where the positives come from, albeit we didn't get anything from the game.

    "There might be a chance to get one more player in, maybe two, but we will wait and see."

  3. 'Two tired teams' - McInnes

    FT: Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes: "If you're going to lose a goal, lose it in the first minute, it gives you plenty of time to get back involved. But we were too dippy at the start. We gave away a stupid free-kick and then we don't deal with it.

    "It's a gift. It was almost coming up here 1-0 down. So we had it all to do, and after 20 minutes we started to get our game going.

    "I thought there was a lot of tired players out there. My players having their fourth game in nine days, Ross County having extra-time in midweek, but I thought our willingness and determination to make the game go our way was evident.

    "Shay [Logan] has an unbelievable scoring record against Ross County. He was talking about it yesterday.

    "The only striker that has scored is Miles Storey and we've let him go. The attacking threats we've got we'll more than chip in with goals this season. Adam Rooney has always done it, Nicky Maynard was lovely, and I thought Stevie May had an fantastic debut, and Jayden Stockley gives us something different."

  4. Wright says red cards were right

    FT: St Johnstone 4-1 Motherwell

    St Johnstone were 4-1 and three men up at the end of today's meeting with Motherwell and the McDiarmid Park boss Tommy Wright told BBC Scotland: "David [Wotherspoon] thinks he is getting the ball, he can nick the ball. If you handle it outside the box you always have that danger of a red card, it was a red card [for Motherwell goalkeeper Trevor Carson].

    "The third one was definitely a red card [for Charles Dunne] and if anything the [Carl] McHugh tackle from where I was - my lad said, even though he won the ball - was two-footed off the ground.

    "Even if you win the ball you can't tackle like that. Maybe the ref could have given a straight red. But yellow and a red to follow was the right decision.

    "It's three points for us. We had it last year, self-inflicted with Danny [Swanson] and Richard [Foster] getting sent off [at Hamilton]. It happens. It shouldn't take away that we have won the game and the three points are ours."

  6. 'We're only going to get better' - May

    FT: Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen striker Stevie May after making his debut: "It's a hard place to come. Over the season you'll see a lot of teams struggle up here. Grinding out wins up here is definitely something that is a bonus. It's three points well deserved for us.

    "We played well in spells before the half-time whistle and carried that into the second half.

    "We've got four attacking players that can play in every one of the positions, we can intertwine, and evolve through the pitch between us.

    "There's no-one who can't play left and no-one who can't play right, so it's definitely a bonus to have that in the squad. But our link-up play is only going to get better.

    "I don't think competition is ever bad. The numbers and quality we've got is testament to the ambition of the club. It's a good start from my point of view."

  7. 'We gave it everything' - McIntyre

    FT: Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

    Ross County manager Jim McIntyre: "The first 15 minutes I was really pleased, we really got at Aberdeen. But after that we were guilty of gifting the ball away.

    "When I look back at the chances, most of their chances are outside of the box, and the saves from Scott Fox are ones you expect him to make, so I'm really disappointed.

    "In the second half we were flagging, maybe the extra-time in midweek had an effect, but it's no excuse, we're a fit team.

    "Aberdeen are a top side. You need to defend well when you come up agaisnt good teams and I felt we did that. In the main the boys gave it everything they had, they just didn't have the bit of extra quality."

  8. 'Once we found our feet we were excellent' - Lennon

    FT: Rangers 2-3 Hibernian

    Hibs boss Neil Lennon: "I didn't relish the first 15 minutes, we didn't start very well at all. Rangers came out of the blocks very well. I was really disappointed with the first goal we conceded from the set play.

    "But once we found our feet in the game we were excellent. I think we thoroughly deserved to win the game."

    "We scored a great equaliser and grew into the game. The red card [for Ryan Jack] put us in the ascendancy and we made the most of the numerical advantage. My only criticism is that we didn't win the game by more.

    "We played great in the second half and made the pitch big. We cut them open at times but were a bit wasteful in front of goal. We saw the game out quite well - I'm delighted."

  9. 'Massive win' for Hearts - Daly

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-1 Hearts

    Hearts interim boss Jon Daly is understandably a happy man after celebrating a first win in charge since taking over from the departed Ian Cathro.

    "It's a massive win," he told BBC Scotland. "We haven't won here since April 2013 so it shows how difficult a place it is to come. The players showed a lot of the characteristics that people have questioned over the last while - determination, the will to fight and hard work. I thought we saw that in abundance today.

    "The effort off the ball was different class. We know we can do better on the ball but when the group is low on confidence, you can understand why. We weren't at our best on the ball but I was delighted for big Isma with the goal, 'Laff' [Kyle Lafferty] up top was was excellent, the boys in the middle were different class and while Jack Hamilton didn't have a lot to do, I thought his handling was different class.

    "His double save was outstanding. He is young goalkeeper who has had a lot of criticism but we have a lot of high hopes for him."

  10. Saints gaffer 'gets the best' out of O'Halloran

    FT: St Johnstone 4-1 Motherwell

    St Johnstone's on-loan Rangers winger Michael O'Halloran netted twice in today's 4-1 win over Motherwell, who had three players sent off - two of which came in the last 15 minutes.

    "Obviously delighted to chip in with two goals," O'Halloran told BBC Scotland.

    "It was a bit strange at the end. We'll take the four goals and move on to the next game.

    "I'm enjoying it here. The gaffer's a huge part of it for me. He knows how to get the best out of me."

  12. 'This Hibs team is full of goals'

    Rangers 2-3 Hibernian

    Tom English

    Chief sports writer, BBC Scotland

    "It's a huge win for Hibs and Neil Lennon. They've announced themselves back in the Premiership; they've gone to a big stadium with a capacity crowd and they've turned Rangers over. That's a real statement from Hibs. This Hibs team is full of goals and confidence - everything on the up.

    Hibernian celebrate Simon Murray's goal at Ibrox

    "We'll see what happens with the Rangers supporters and what they make of Pedro Caixinha. Certainly, the pressure is on Caixinha already. It's a sore one for Rangers.

    "It's a major blow to their pride and Caixinha has some explaining to do..."
