  1. Good night

    I'm going to sign off now on what has been a very good day for followers of Rangers, Celtic and Aberdeen.

    You can catch all of the goals on Sportscene.

    Steven Thompson is your host and the programme is on BBC Scotland from 19:15.

    Thanks for your company and enjoy what's left of your Sunday.

  2. Rare Friday feeling for Premiership

    Our next Premiership fix comes on Friday evening, with four matches. They were brought forward with an eye on Scotland's play-off semi-final against Israel.

    But how many players will be involved in Steve Clarke's plans? Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland and Motherwell duo Declan Gallagher and Stephen O'Donnell. That's probably it.

    Celtic and Rangers are again on Sunday duty because they have Europa League play-offs to come on Thursday. Galatasary visit Ibrox and Neil Lennon's side are away to Sarajevo.

    We'll have all of the action covered on both evenings, so join us then.

  3. County's worst performance so far - Kettlewell

    FT: Ross County 0-3 Aberdeen

    Ross County manager Stuart Kettewell says he can't defend his players after that defeat.

    "It was clearly our worst, that's as poor as we've been all season," he said on Sportsound.

    "I just felt from the first minute to the last we never competed in any aspect of the game. I thought every facet of it was well short of where we've been. Aberdeen were better than us all over the pitch.

    "When we rode our luck I was looking for a reaction from us, but I felt one or two of us went into our shell. I'm taking nothing away from Aberdeen, it sounds like you say we were poor and that was the only reason they won the game, they were good.

    "But I just felt we were so passive and looked apprehensive at having any impact on the game."

  4. 'Hibs shouldn't be too hurt'

    FT: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian

    Livingston midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Jeremie Frimpong was absolutely fantastic for Celtic. I felt sorry for Josh Doig; coming up against the best right wing-back in Scotland is never easy. Hibs shouldn't be too hurt though, they've still had a good start to the season.

  5. Ross still looking for recruits at Hibs

    FT: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian

    Hibernian manager Jack Ross saw his side overpowered at Celtic Park but is not too downhearted, with his team sitting third in the table.

    He tells BBC Scotland: "I've no complaints over the end result, but first half I thought we were very good, there were aspects of our performance that were very good, we found ourselves in good areas of the pitch regularly, but were not clinical enough.

    "It's unusual for us because we're normally very good at that. We just fell a little bit short today but our working to get ourselves into that area of the pitch was good."

    Ross says he is working hard to bring signings in before the end of the transfer window.

    "We still need to [bring players in]. If we want to stay where we are in the league there are one or two areas of the pitch we need to address."

  6. McInnes delights in 'proper team performance'

    FT: Ross County 0-3 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes tells BBC Sportsound he is "delighted" with his side's display.

    "I think you've always got a bit of trepidation after a European trip and the amount the players had put in, the travelling back," he says. "The focus and intensity at the start of the game we banged on about was clear and that pleased me no end.

    "I think we had 18 shots in the game, and early on we passed up so many opportunities and clearly the frustration leading into half-time was the fact we were missing so many but playing so well.

    "It was a proper team performance and I'm delighted."

  7. 'Frimpong scared the life out of Hibs'

    FT: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer

    Quote Message: I thought Celtic were excellent. From the start there was a brilliant attitude and tempo to their play. Frimpong scared the life out of Hibs all day long.
  8. 'Celtic come through with flying colours'

    FT: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon tells BBC Scotland: "It's certainly the best (performance) of the season, and one of the best of my time in my two periods as manager. I enjoyed it immensely. I thought the second-half was absolutely brilliant.

    "We were up against a good side who had won all their away games. It was a good test for us, and I thought we came through it with flying colours. It was a brilliant team performance, absolutely brilliant."

    Lennon, already without James Forrest, reveals that Albian Ajeti will also miss Thursday's Europa League tie with FK Sarajevo.

    He said: "Albian looks like he's tweaked a hamstring. We hope it's only two or three weeks, but it's a blow as he's on great goalscoring form.

    "Ryan [Christie] should be okay, he got a bit winded by the challenge for the second goal, but he should be okay for Thursday."

  10. 'County sent back to the drawing board'

    FT: Ross County 0-3 Aberdeen

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: It doesn't get any easier for Ross County since they've got Hibs and Rangers next. Aberdeen were emphatic winners and sent Stuart Kettlewell back to the drawing board.
  11. Turnbull turns it on for Celtic

    FT: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian

    David Turnbull stats

    David Turnbull was introduced as a half-time replacement and slotted into the Celtic midfield seamlessly. Very composed on the ball and rarely wasting a pass.

  12. 'Celtic hit the heights'

    FT: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I think that is Celtic's best performance this season. They dominated the midfield for the whole game and I think that was where the game was won. David Turnbull coming on improved that dominance even further.
  13. 'Lewis was a spectator'

    FT: Ross County 0-3 Aberdeen

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis was a spectator this afternoon. A solid performance defensively, but it's been all about how they attacked.
  14. FULL-TIME Celtic 3-0 Hibernian

    Celtic remain one point behind Premiership leaders Rangers, with a game in hand.

    The champions led 2-0 at the break and completely controlled the second half as Mohamed Elyounoussi added to strikes from Callum McGregor and Albian Ajeti.

    Hibs contributed to a very entertaining first half but couldn't get going at all after the break as Neil Lennon's men dominated possession.

    Celtic remain one point behind Rangers
  15. FULL-TIME Ross County 0-3 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen stay in fourth but they are just two points behind Hibs now, with two games in hand.

    Two penalties for Lewis Ferguson and first goal for Marley Watkins.
