Live Reporting

All times stated are UK

  1. That's all folks

    Ciao for now. It's been a good day for Kilmarnock, Hibernian, Aberdeen and Ross County fans. Not so hot for Scottish rugby fans...

    We'll be back on Tuesday with more live Premiership action.

    This is how the midweek line-up looks:

    Partick Thistle v Rangers

    Motherwell v St Johnstone

  2. I take responsibility, but so should players - McCann

    Dundee 1-4 Ross County

    Dundee manager Neil McCann is not in a good mood as he speaks to BBC Scotland:

    "I thought we were very poor. I don’t think there was a great deal in the first half although I don’t think we played well. We got into decent areas and chose a negative pass rather than a positive one.

    "In the second half when we went a goal down, which was a great finish from Keillor-Dunn, we then got ourselves back in the game and it was probably our best spell around that period when I felt we could go on and score another goal.

    "But we took another negative pass out in the wide area and then put ourselves under pressure and lost a very sloppy goal. The third goal was a poor one to lose and the game's gone by then.

    "I’ll take responsibility for a few things today but the players have to take an equal share of that - they’re not blameless but neither am I with some of my decisions.

    "I’ll look at the game again and we’ll come in and go through it together as a team. I thought we looked a wee bit flat at times and there was a lack of punch in our play."

  3. 'Not one for the purists' admits Jags boss

    FT: Motherwell 1-1 Partick Thistle

    Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald talking to BBC Scotland.

    "We dealt with most of what Motherwell threw at us and I thought we did enough to hang on in there.

    "We should defend the goal better. We've got three centre-backs in there to do a job and they've switched off for a second.

    "It was an even match, there wasn't much in it; not a game for the purists."

  4. Aberdeen 'give doubters something to think about'

    FT: Aberdeen 3-0 Hamilton Academical

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes tells BBC Scotland: "I think the response has been brilliant from the players (since the defeat to Rangers). Three different games, three challenges and we've overcome that.

    "Plenty positives with the goals, the added positive today with the clean sheet. We've got a lot to look forward to between now and the end of the season."

    One frustrating aspect for Aberdeen this season has been their five defeats from five games against both halves of the Old Firm.

    "I'm not thinking about that", said McInnes. "Each game is a challenge and I think we would have to say that probably in those games the opposition has played a lot better than us.

    "The consistency shown from the team has been excellent. The intention is to kick on and try and get positive results from now until the end of the season.

    "But for all those who doubted us when we lost the game at Ibrox, they just presumed it was going to be Aberdeen rolling over and Rangers going up competing with Celtic - we've given people something to think about. I'm disappointed with aspects of the players performance but I've never doubted their capability to go on winning runs and finish the season strong.

    "Now, we are where we are with the potential to still improve and hopefully we see that improvement in all games."

  5. Motherwell boss looks for improvement

    FT: Motherwell 1-1 Partick Thistle

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson talking to BBC Scotland:

    "We got punished from a set-piece, which is extremely frustrating when you've worked on it and designated people to mark. We have to rectify that.

    "But I thought the boys showed super character again. The least we deserved was a point.

    "Sometimes you need a bit of luck and we didn't have that today.

    "It's nice to see Nadir (Ciftci) get on the scoresheet. Strikers are judged by their goals and it's good to have the two forwards firing.

    "But there are plenty of things we could have been better at today."

  6. Only one team deserved to win it - Wright

    FT: Heart of Midlothian 1-0 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright insists his side dominated at Tynecastle and is not best pleased with referee Andrew Dallas.

    "Anybody at the game, anybody reporting at the game would know there's only one team deserved to win it," he tells BBC Scotland.

    "Even when we went down to 10 men we created more chances than Hearts throughout the game.

    "We went to sleep for five seconds at the back post and cost ourselves the game. That's compounded by a ridiculous second yellow for David Wotherspoon. In fact, the foul should go the other way.

    "Same old, same old with that same referee. I have been disappointed on most of the times I've had him.

    "We come here and totally dominate and should win the game. That's down to us for not taking our chances and some excellent goalkeeping.

    "We've got to start putting teams to bed."

  7. All three goals preventable - Canning

    FT: Aberdeen 3-0 Hamilton Academical

    Hamilton Accies manager Martin Canning told BBC Scotland: "There wasn't much in the first half. I thought we had the best chance through Ioannis Skondras.

    "We've let Aberdeen score twice from set-pieces and also let Kenny McLean cut back on his left foot, and that's things we've talked about.

    "That seems to be the story of us just now - a lot of boys are putting in performances and performing well enough, but just making mistakes at the wrong time.

    "It's our turn now to go through a bad spell with injuries and suspensions. This is always a difficult place to come. You come up to Pittodrie with your full team against a full strength Aberdeen, it's difficult. To come up with half a team missing makes it even more difficult."

  10. Hearts players 'stood up' - Levein

    FT: Heart of Midlothian 1-0 St Johnstone

    Hearts manager Craig Levein talking to BBC Sportsound after the win over St Johnstone.

    "St Johnstone were slightly better than us in the first half and then I think we were better than them in the second.

    "They ask questions of your centre backs. They turned us, they put the ball in high, they threw long throws into the box.

    "These are all legitimate ways of winning matches and you've got to deal with them.

    "John Souttar, Christophe Berra and Jon McLaughlin stood up in that particular area."

    On trying to agree a new deal with McLaughlin who is out of contract at the end of the season, Levein said...

    "We're trying our best. The door is still open for him to stay.

    "He's had a lot of decent offers from down south which is much more money than we can afford to pay but you never know."

  11. Coyle hails County quality

    FT: Dundee 1-4 Ross County

    Ross County manager Owen Coyle talking (at 100mph) to BBC Sportsound:

    "We've been on a horrible run, one that's hurt us all. We knew that when we started to get players back (from injuries) that we were going to be a good team. I've been repetitive in saying it, but you could see the quality of David N'Gog and, all of sudden, Alex Schalk can play round about him. We've still got others to come back and there's a lot of work to do. And N'Gog is still only 80% fit.

    "We certainly feel we are a stronger team as we move into the business end of the season.

    "From the first whistle to the last, I thought we were outstanding. We passed Dundee off the park.

    "We showed real quality, particularly in the final third.

    "Our destiny is in our own hands and if we perform like that, it will get us to safety."

  12. 'Up there with Barcelona,' says jubilant Lennon

    FT: Rangers 1-2 Hibernian

    "It's up there with the Barcelona result in my managerial career," Hibs boss Neil Lennon tells BBC Scotland, recalling his 2012 Champions League triumph with Celtic.

    "It's an incredible result under the circumstances, with all the injuries we had.

    "We played fantastically well, particularly in the first half.

    "Rangers came back strongly but we decided to play again after they equalised and got the penalty.

    "That was our fifth game in 13 days and I've lost (defenders) Paul Hanlon, Darren McGregor, Steven Whittaker and David Gray. I had Lewis Stevenson playing at left centre-half and Martin Boyle at right wing-back, lots of square pegs in round holes.

    "I couldn't be prouder of the players."

  13. St Mirren in control at top of the Championship

    The Paisley side are cruising back into the top flight.

    The Buddies are now 14 points clear at the top and show no signs of letting up.

    Livingston are also ticking along nicely and are just one point behind Dundee United in second place.

  14. Good day for the Dons

    FT: Aberdeen 3-0 Hamilton

    Aberdeen cantered to victory, their eighth successive home success in the league against Accies.
