Dundee and Dundee United will meet on New Year's Day

The Scottish Premiership begins 2015 with a series of derbies on New Year's Day.

In the lunchtime kick-off, Dundee United host Dundee and later, at 15:00 GMT, Motherwell travel to take on Lanarkshire rivals Hamilton Academical.

Also in the afternoon, there's a Highland derby between Ross County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

However, Partick Thistle's evening game with Celtic has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The other two top-flight fixtures scheduled for Thursday, both at 15:00, are Aberdeen v St Johnstone and St Mirren v Kilmarnock.

Live commentary of the Dundee derby and Thistle v Celtic will be available on BBC Radio Scotland while the other matches will be featured on the station in Sportsound - Open al Mics.
