Dundee United beat St Mirren 3-0
SNS Group

That's all from me folks. Congratulations to Dundee United for moving to the summit of the Premiership.

It's tight at the top though, with only two points covering the leading four teams.

Ross County are at home to Aberdeen on Monday night. Please join us again for that one. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist tells reporters at Dumbarton that his club did indeed offer goalkeeper Craig Gordon a contract when he was training and recovering from injury at Murray Park.

This differs from this morning's press reports in which the Celtic goalie says he was not offered a deal by Rangers. McCoist added that he has not heard from Gordon since his time at Rangers' training facility.

The draw for the Scottish Cup fourth round will be on Monday afternoon. Spartans will be in the hat after a great win over Clyde.

Hurlford and Bo'ness are still alive after draws today, while Brora Rangers will be representing the Highland League.

The last time Celtic and Rangers met was in April 2012, with Charlie Mulgrew, Kris Commons and Gary Hooper on target in a comfortable league victory for Celtic.

Aberdeen are, of course, the League Cup holders, while Dundee United last lifted the trophy way back in 1980.


Dundee United v Aberdeen

Celtic v Rangers

Those ties will be played on 31 January and 1 February.

It's not be confirmed but both ties are likely to be played at Hampden, which should be back to normal by then after all the Commonwealth Games shenanigans.

Giving his reaction to the League Cup draw...

"It's going to be fantastic. I'm really looking forward to it but it's three months away, so maybe a little early to be talking about it. We will be ready.

"We are favourites in every game we play in Scotland. We are used to that."

BBC Radio Scotland reporter Chris McLaughlin tells listeners there was a huge cheer from the Celtic dressing room when the draw was made.

Dundee United, first out of the tombola, are top dogs in the Premiership tonight after a comfortable win over St Mirren. Hamilton drop a place to second and Celtic creep up to third place.


Dundee United v Aberdeen

Celtic v Rangers


Hamilton just never know when to quit - as Partick Thistle will testify to. The Accies were 2-0 up midway through the first half only for the Jags to come roaring back and get in front. However, the spoils were shared when Tony Andreu found the net after 94 minutes.

Hamilton did something similar at Firhill earlier in the season, scoring twice to win after going behind on 85 minutes.

Rangers made it past Dumbarton in the Scottish Cup thanks to a goal from Kris Boyd. They are also in the League Cup, with the semi-final draw coming up shortly. Celtic, Aberdeen and Dundee United complete the line-up.

Celtic 1-0 Inverness CT

BBC Scotland pundit Pat Bonner

"The tempo is up and the goal has given John Guidetti confidence because every time he gets the ball he is looking to score. What I like about Guidetti is that he sees little passes all around him. John Hughes will be annoyed that his players switched off."
