  1. Goodbye

    FT: Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    So there we have it. The first round of Scottish Premiership fixtures is complete, with tonight springing a bit of a surprise.

    We hope you've enjoyed it as much as we have. Even in these strange circumstances, it's great to have football to look forward to.

    We're back live for Rangers' game with Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday, we hope to see you then.

    Thanks for joining us, bye for now.

  2. 'Referee didn't cost us' - Robinson

    FT: Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson says his side only have themselves to blame for their loss to Ross County.

    "How we started the game cost us, it wasn't any decision the referee made," he said.

    "We didn't match runners in the first 15 minutes. It's certainly a lesson for our young squad. We missed our own penalty and two great chances. If you don't take your chances you don't win football matches."

    On Callum Lang's red card:

    "It looked like a red card from where I was, you give the referee a decision to make."

  3. 'We've ridden our luck with the missed penalty' - Kettlewell

    FT: Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    Speaking on BBC Sportsound, Ross County manager Stuart Kettlewell expressed his delight at the win:

    "The remit at the start was to come away with three points," he said.

    "We knew it was going to be a difficult task but I was delighted with the first half and the grit in the second half. I'm struggling to find anyone that didn't offer us something in the game.

    "For us to go to the next level we need to trust ourselves in possession. At times we panicked in second half. We've ridden our luck with the missed penalty."

    On David de Gea comparisons:

    "It's wasted on me with the whole social media thing. He may be my doppelganger, or it’s the other way around!"

    Quote Message: Ross County defended as a team really well in the second half. You can see their work ethic. Motherwell had the majority of possession but you need a little bit of luck and County got that with Motherwell's penalty miss

    Back onto the important topics....

    Quote Message: They [Kettlewell and De Gea] are very similar. I can see why they are saying that. It's the hairstyle, the old sweep back.

  8. FULL-TIME - Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    Well, who saw that coming?

    Ross County start the season with all three points against a Motherwell side who will have travelled to Dingwall with victory in mind.

    Ross Stewart's penalty inside 24 minutes is the difference between the two sides after Declan Gallagher recklessly brought down Harry Paton.

    Motherwell had chances to at least earn a point. Chris Long hit the post shortly after they went behind, while Liam Donnelly dragged a penalty wide in the second half.

    New 'Well signing Callum Lang them compounded their misery when he earned a straight red card late on.

    Liam Donnelly misses from the spot

    Quote Message: It's a stupid tackle from Callum Lang. I think Stephen Robinson will be annoyed, Lang's given the referee the chance

    Having come on at half-time for his debut, Callum Lang is off for a straight red. Stephen Robinson's not happy...

    Changes galore in Dingwall. Ross Draper and Oli Shaw are on for County, replacing Billy Mckay and Jordan Tillson.

    Tony Watt is on for David Turnbull for the visitors.

    Quote Message: You've got to go early for those deliveries. It was a wicked outswinger from Nathan McGinley. It was begging for a striker to get on the end of it
  15. CLOSE!

    Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    What a ball in from Nathan McGinley. It's whipped across the face of goal and Jordan White just can't get on the end of it.

    'Well are really pushing for an equaliser now.

  16. Post update

    Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    Apologies for the confusion, Motherwell fans. A goal graphic seems to have slipped through the net. You most definitely did not score that penalty. Sorry!

  17. 'It's a terrible penalty'

    Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on Sportsound

    Quote Message: Liam Donnelly got too much action on it. It's right off the heel and he's dragged it a yard wide. It's a terrible penalty
  18. MISSED PENALTY - Liam Donnelly

    Ross County 1-0 Motherwell

    That might be justice done...

    Jordan White makes an instant impact, tumbling to the ground in the box under the softest of touches from Coll Donaldson. Referee Nick Walsh points to the spot.

    Liam Donnelly steps up and drags his penalty wide of the post. Massive chance goes begging.
