  1. Stay up for Sportsound

    That's all from me folks, but you can see all of tonight's action on Sportscene on BBC One Scotland at 00:15.

    I know it's late but it's well worth staying up for.

    We had some fantastic goals and there are talking points aplenty from that cracker at Pittodrie.

    Good night...

  2. Rodgers allays Izaguirre worries

    FT: Celtic 2-0 Hibernian

    Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers on BBC Sportsound: "I thought it was a good performance. I thought we managed the game very well. Just once or twice we were a bit loose with our passing and giving it away under pressure. But I thought we controlled the game.

    "They’ve played a diamond here before - they played 3-5-2. So they're maybe thinking they’ve come here before and played well with a diamond. Maybe expected Mallan to start. But I thought we played well and played through the pressure.

    "I think Emilio (Izaguirre) got away with that one. A very clumsy tackle by the young Hibs player (Darnell Johnson) and I think it scared him a wee bit on the ankle where he’s had issues before. But the medical team are telling me that they think he’s probably just got away with it. It’s a bit sore but we’re just need to assess it over the next couple of days."

  3. Morelos was the difference, says McInnes

    FT: Aberdeen 2-4 Rangers

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has no complaints with the red cards and penalties awarded at Pittodrie but thinks his side should have had a second spot-kick for an Allan McGregor challenge on Lewis Ferguson.

    "Scott McKenna has his hand up for offside, it's not a deliberate hand ball but his hand is in an unnatural position," he says of the first penalty.

    "Both penalty decisions are probably right. For the red card, Scott has probably been guilty of a bit of naivety."

    Should the McGregor challenge have been a penalty?

    "Absoultely," says McInnes. "Coming out with studs up like that is dangerous. It's a foul regardless of whether he has a pair of gloves on.

    "Morelos was fantastic in leading the line for them. That quality he has was obvious. It was a pretty even game but he made the difference. When he got sent off, we were the better team.

    "It's a sore one but there's 13 games to go and we'll dust ourselves down. I feel that we will get better but there's no real room for error."

  4. Kearney will 'speak to' angry Baird tomorrow

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Motherwell

    St Mirren defender Jack Baird was none too happy at being replaced in the first half, as manager Oran Kearney changed his formation with the Paisley side trailing 1-0.

    Kearney says he will not speak to Baird "until tomorrow".

    "At that point, emotions were running high," Kearney told BBC Radio Scotland.

    "It was of no detriment to how Jack was playing, it was purely tactical in relation to, I didn’t want to wait until half-time and possibly leave us in a worse position. I felt we had to make that change straight away to make sure we stayed in the game.

    "We were disappointed with the start, we deservedly got our goal, it lifts the crowd and we expect a grandstand finish. Our goal seemed to zap energy from us rather than give us energy. We just didn’t gather that momentum we wanted."

  5. Win massive for confidence - Rice

    FT: Hamilton 2-1 St Johnstone

    Hamilton head coach Brian Rice: “I’m absolutely delighted. It’s my first win as a head coach.

    "It’s a day I’ll never forget but they deserved it - the effort they put in, doing everything I asked of them, playing forward, being positive, playing with a smile on their face, crosses, shots. Just go and play when you can but play to a structure.

    “Everybody to a man fought their corner, won their headers, won their tackles and when they made a mistake, they recovered and that’s all I ask of them.

    "It’s massive for confidence right through the club, right through the town. I want to give them confidence to play, I don’t want them to be overconfident.”

    Hamilton celebrate
  6. 'We were in total control' - Robinson

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Motherwell

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson on BBC Radio Scotland: "We were excellent for the first 20 minutes, could have scored a couple more, and when we scored we took our foot off the gas a little bit.

    "When they scored, again we lifted it completely. The substitutes, Carl McHugh and Elliott Frear, who set up the goal, did very well and gave us a little bit more impetus going forward. We thoroughly deserved to win it – I didn’t feel any threat in the second half, we were well in control.

    "Jake Hastie is a good young boy making his way in the game – let’s not get too excited too early. He’s a great kid, feet on the ground, and we’ll keep pushing and developing him."

  7. Win gives Rangers 'breathing space'

    FT: Aberdeen 2-4 Rangers

    Rangers boss Steven Gerrard tells Sky Sports: "Obviously I’m delighted the win. I thought we stood up to them and matched them on the basics very well. We took our goals ever so well.

    "Morelos’ finishes are top drawer and that’s the reason we love him so much.

    "In terms of the incidents I haven’t seen them to comment on. I can’t even comment to say Scott McKenna deserves a red because I haven’t had a chance to see it.

    "James Tavenier’s is a penalty. I think the referee got it right.

    "This gives us a little breathing space but we know Derek McInnes will keep pushing until the end. Aberdeen have been in great form. We know they’re not going to go away. It’s an important victory for us. We’ve a cup game at the weekend and we want to get into the next round and keep pushing on in the league and see what happens."

  8. Ikpeazu return lifts Levein's dark mood

    FT: Hearts 0-0 Livingston

    Hearts manager Craig Levein uses "frustrated" a lot during his short interview on Sportsound as Hearts stay three points behind Kilmarnock in fourth place.

    "We're kicking ourselves because we had an opportunity to close the gap on the sides above us," he says.

    "But Livi are well organised, aggressive, they know what they are doing.

    "The good side for me is that Uche Ikpeazu came on and looked like he'd never been away."

  9. 'Morelos needs help'

    FT: Aberdeen 2-4 Rangers

    Gordon Smith

    Former SFA chief executive on Sportsound

    Quote Message: The red cards were right. Morelos follows through with his foot and McKenna has reacted. He's caught him, I think, and Morelos has made the most of it. He had one eye on the ref as he was writhing about. Why does he have to get involved? He's a liability in that respect. Rangers have got to deal with it. He needs help with the behavioural side of his game

  10. 'A tremendous victory for Rangers'

    FT: Aberdeen 2-4 Rangers

    Gordon Smith

    Former SFA chief executive on Sportsound

    Quote Message: It's a tremendous victory for Rangers. Steven Gerrard got the set-up right, going back to 4-3-3 and the changes he made through the game were good too
  11. Dundee kicking themselves

    FT: Dundee 2-2 Kilmarnock

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    A point apiece is is probably the right outcome, with Dundee playing some blistering stuff in the first half but fading a little after the break. Kilmarnock did well to twice come back from behind, and will be grateful Kenny Miller couldn’t make the most of that brilliant chance to give the hosts all three points from the spot.

  12. Motherwell flying, St Mirren slump further

    FT St Mirren 1-2 Motherwell

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Sport Scotland in Paisley

    When you’re down at the bottom it is imperative you get something from home games but St Mirren’s record in a Paisley is grim. It continued tonight.

    They had opportunities but new signings need to get up and running. With their next two league fixtures away to Hearts and Aberdeen following a tough Scottish Cup test against Dundee United, something has to click quickly.

    For Motherwell, January has seen something of a resurgence. Winning seems normal now.

    Happy days for Stephen Robinson and the Fir Park faithful.

  13. FULL-TIME - Hearts 0-0 Livingston

    No goals at Tynecastle as Livingston end a run of four straight Scottish Premiership defeats.

    Hearts will be the more disappointed, having had a goal disallowed for offside in the second half.

  14. FULL-TIME Aberdeen 2-4 Rangers

    A night of high drama at Pittodrie ends with the visitors five points clear in second place.

    Alfredo Morelos scored twice and got himself sent off, while Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna gave away a penalty and also saw red after his tangle with the Rangers striker.

  16. FULL-TIME - Dundee 2-2 Kilmarnock

    A point for the hosts but Kenny Miller will be feeling sick after missing that stoppage-time penalty.

    The Dark Blues have been awarded three penalties this season and have failed to score from each one.

    Kilmarnock hit back twice to move level on points with third-placed Aberdeen.

  17. FULL-TIME Celtic 2-0 Hibernian

    Goals from Ryan Christie and Oliver Burke ensure Celtic maintain a six-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

    A very comfortable evening for Brendan Rodgers' side.

  18. FULL-TIME - Hamilton 2-1 St Johnstone

    George Oakley's double makes the difference and gives Hamilton a first win under head coach Brian Rice.

    They move three points clear of the Premiership's bottom two while it's a third straight league defeat for sixth-placed St Johnstone.

  19. MISSED PENALTY

    Dundee 2-2 Kilmarnock

    Kenny Miller blows a fabulous chance to clinch a win for Dundee. The substitute striker is brought down by Daniel Bachmann and then sees his penalty kept out by the Killie keeper.

  20. GOAL Aberdeen 2-4 Rangers

    Jermain Defoe

    Rangers break. Will they run it into the corner? Not a bit of it. The ball is worked to James Tavernier, who drives forward and slips a pass through for Jermain Defoe to tuck away.

    Game over.
