    So, Hearts come roaring back at Easter Road to claim victory in the Edinburgh derby.

    Earlier, Celtic continued their perfect start to the Premiership season to come from behind and beat Kilmarnock for their sixth straight league win.

    And Rangers thumped St Johnstone 4-0 following an impressive second-half display in Perth.

    Thanks for your company this afternoon.

    Remember, Sportscene is on the BBC Scotland channel at 19:15 tonight, with highlights of all this weekend's games.

  3. Wright stoic despite mauling

    FT: St Johnstone 0-4 Rangers

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright: "At half-time we were reasonably happy, we didn't really have too many problems.

    "[On St Johnstone's appeal for a goal] I think the ball crossed the line and that's the wee bit of luck that you need in these situations.

    "I'm not saying we deserved anything from the game but it could have changed the context of the game and what happened in the last five minutes."

  4. Gerrard pleased with Rangers' response

    FT: St Johnstone 0-4 Rangers

    Rangers manager Steven Gerrard speaking to Rangers TV: "I asked them for more in the second half and I certainly got it - I thought the second half performance was on a different level to the first.

    "We looked hungry, full of running and full of energy and could have scored a few more goals."

  6. 'We made two mistakes'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Kilmarnock

    "It was a shame because we lost a goal in the last minute of the first half. It is much better to go into the changing room at 1-0.

    "We can put pressure on Celtic, but this is a tough game. The second half was very difficult for us, because Celtic pushed very high. We made two mistakes and Edouard scored two goals."

  7. Lennon hails 'magnificent' Celtic

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Kilmarnock

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon hailed his side's "absolutely superb performance" in their comeback victory at home to Kilmarnock.

    Eamonn Brophy fired the visitors in front but Celtic responded through an Odsonne Edouard double and a close-range strike by Ryan Christie.

    "We deserved so much more from the first half," said Lennon. "We came in at half-time and asked guys behind the scenes how many attempts at goals we've had. It was 14 - some teams don't get that many in 90 minutes.

    "You could see there was a verve and real tempo about our play. The scoreline flattered Kilmarnock at half-time. They had one real chance, if you even want to call it an attack, and a great goal from Brophy.

    "The 15-20 minutes after half-time we were absolutely superb. That's six wins out of six and a magnificent start to the season."

  8. 'I must credit the players enormously for their efforts today' - Levein

    Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Hearts manager Craig Levein is a happy man following his side's Edinburgh derby victory.

    "Up to the point where Stevie Mallan scored I felt that our defence were excellent and hadn’t really caused us many problems," he tells BBC Sportsound.

    "Down to the great character that the players showed and the fighting spirit they showed to get back into the match, and if we left here without three points I'd have felt that we’d been robbed today. So it was only fitting because I thought we were the better side.

    "I felt that the overall bravery of the team today and the willingness to just roll the sleeves up and keep going was as much a part to play as the change of the personnel and change of shape. I must credit them enormously for their efforts today and I’m so pleased for the supporters.

    "We sold out all our tickets today at a time when we’re not our best, so that was for them. Because they’ve obviously had a difficult time as well."

  9. Derby spoils

    FT: Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Craig Levein has now been involved in 60 Edinburgh derbies as a player and manager. He's lost only nine of them...

  10. 'I couldn’t really see either team scoring for a while'

    FT: Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Marvin Bartley

    Livingston midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Uche Ikpeazu used his body really well, chested it down and spun and scored. But prior to that it was a bit of toing and froing - I couldn’t really see either team scoring because of the corners, you know, the goalkeepers actually coming and claiming them.
  11. Heart-warming tale

    FT: Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Hearts boss Craig Levein watched his side come from behind to win the first Edinburgh derby of the season and move up to eighth in the Premiership.

  12. Mallan's goal was catalyst for Hearts

    FT: Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Neil McCann

    Former Scotland winger on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I have to say, apart from Stevie Mallan’s wonder strike, Hibs weren’t all that aggressive in their play and didn’t cause Hearts too many problems either. But I think Mallan's goal forced Craig Levein's hand. I don’t think having three at the back was ever set up to go and win the game. But certainly when he changed it gave them a different dimension and a much more aggressive stance in the game
  13. Teenage kicks

    FT: Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Aaron Hickey's late strike earned Edinburgh derby bragging rights for Hearts. Where did that response come from?

  14. FULL-TIME Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Talk about contrasting emotions: Hearts boss Craig Levein, arms outstretched and a beaming smile, trots onto the pitch to congratulate his players and take the acclaim of the away supporters.

    Meanwhile, the home fans still remaining inside Easter Road show their displeasure with a chorus of boos.


    Hibs 1-2 Hearts

    Scott Allen forces Castro Pereira into a smart save out for a corner. From the set piece the Hearts keeper gathers but Hibs substitute Doidge knocks it from his grasp - using his arm - before firing home.

    Eagle-eyed whistler John Beaton is having none of it - no goal!
