    Neil McCann

    Former Hearts & Rangers winger on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I don't think you can press this Rangers team too aggressively early on. I love Brian Rice's attitude but I can't see them coming out and opening up too much
  2. 'Defoe was always going to play'

    Hamilton Accies v Rangers (12:15)

    "Alfredo Morelos had a bit of a problem with his flight being 24 hours late," Rangers boss Steven Gerrard tells BT Sport.

    "But Jermain [Defoe] was always going to be play. He's been unlucky not to get more game time because he's been training really well."

    One young fan's reaction to Leigh Griffiths' gesture at Celtic Park has won the internet, although we're not sure the young lad with the Celtic hat is too chuffed!

  4. 'I want us to be positive' - Rice

    Hamilton Accies v Rangers (12:15)

    Hamilton Accies boss Brian Rice tells BBC Sportsound: "We've been down to the bare bones but I felt we needed a wee bit of experience in there today.

    "It's a little bit of a gamble with a couple of them because they haven't played for a month.

    "But, we're playing against Rangers today, and we know how good they can be on their day.

    "So, hopefully they can get through it okay. I just want us to be positive - it's very difficult trying to set up a team against the Old Firm because their attacking play is phenomenal.

    "I've said to the lads: 'let's go out and be organised, and let's try to have a go so that we can go home tonight, whatever the result, and say that we gave it everything and tried our best'."

  5. Debut for Accies keeper Southwood

    Hamilton Accies v Rangers (12:15)

  9. Sportscene predictions

    Eve Muirhead picked up a silver medal at the European Curling Championships yesterday, losing out on the final stone to host nation Sweden.

    The Scotland skip, a St Johnstone fan, will then have turned her attention to the Scottish Premiership scores after taking on Sportscene pundit Steven Thompson in the first of our new predictions series.

    Thommo had a good day with two correct scores on Saturday, so Eve is playing catch up today...

    Of course, she is tipping Saints to beat Aberdeen at McDiarmid Park.
