That's enough from me. Congratulations to Celtic, Inverness Caley Thistle, Aberdeen and St Johnstone on their Premiership victories.

There's no football tomorrow but tune into the website for highlights of today's action from 18:00.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

But Tommy Craig might not be around when the January sales open as Chick Young tells BBC Radio Scotland listeners that he "believes discussions will take place about the manager's future over the next 48 hours".

Tommy Craig also tells BBC Scotland that he will be scouting in London and Liverpool over the next week in the search for January recruits. Stevie G hasn't signed that new contract at Anfield yet, has he?

St Mirren manager Tommy Craig

"Two things; the performance of the players was one of honesty and endeavour. We weren't brilliant but we had good spells. I also thought the fans were ready to cheer a goal, they were willing the ball in. When you get those two things, it tends to lead to positive things. You can't do anything without unity. It's easy to support a winning team, much more difficult to support a losing side."

"They were lacking a spark in the final third, playing one up top in the first half. Everything was very one-paced." is BBC Scotland pundit Derek Ferguson's take on Rangers' performance.

That win for Rangers takes some of the heat off under-fire manager Ally McCoist but it sounds like it was a pretty underwhelming performance at Ibrox as Cowdenbeath were beaten 1-0. Dean Shiels got the goal. A Friday night visit to Palmerston Park is next up for Rangers.

That defeat for Dundee also saw the end of David Clarkson's scoring run. The striker was on eight goals from eight games, so let's not be too hard on him.

Dundee manager Paul Hartley

"The players are disappointed. Poor defending cost us the goals. I can't fault their effort but we were let down by the quality of our play on this occasion."

Aberdeen turned in a very strong second half, capped by a sublime Niall McGinn finish, in their 3-0 victory over Hamilton. The Dons visit Tannadice next weekend and that should be an absolute belter of a game.

Following their success in the battle of the Saints, St Johnstone have now won four of their last five matches and are only one point away from sixth-placed Killie, who stopped a run of five straight defeats with their 1-1 draw at Firhill.

Inverness CT boss John Hughes

"I don't think it was a great game, two teams cancelling each other out. But we went up a couple of gears at half-time and our substitutes made an impact. If you can dig in and win when not at your best, it's a sign that you are a good side."

Inverness are back up to second with that 2-1 win at Dens Park, three points behind Celtic.

With Chelsea losing earlier today, Hearts are now the only team in Britain unbeaten on league duty. The Jambos ran out 4-1 winners against Queen of the South to remain nine points clear at the top of the Championship.

BBC Scotland's Jonathan Sutherland on Twitter: "St Johnstone's fine form continues. St Mirren created plenty of chances, but remain in the doldrums."

Aberdeen 3-0 Hamilton

The biggest away win of the season in the Championship is going to bottom side Livingston. Michael McKenna rattles in a late goal to make it 5-1 at Raith Rovers.


Partick Thistle 1-1 Kilmarnock

Dundee 1-2 Inverness CT


Falkirk 1-0 Hibernian (McCracken)

It looks like the Bairns are on for a double over Hibs this season as David McCracken rips in a stoppage-time shot. The visitors are miles off the pace in the Championship and fall further behind Hearts and Rangers today.


St Mirren 0-1 St Johnstone

Partick Thistle 1-1 Kilmarnock

Partick Thistle sub Gary Fraser, on for Jake Carroll, screws a free-kick horribly, horribly wide from 22 yards but his team-mate James Craigen goes much closer with a fierce left-foot shot from 18 yards.


Dundee 1-2 Inverness CT (Christie)

It's another stramash in the Dundee penalty box and substitute Ryan Christie knocks the ball in to perhaps seal the points for the visitors. Not long to go now.


Aberdeen 3-0 Hamilton

A bad day for Accies gets worse as Jon Routledge is sent for an early bath as he shown a straight red card for a bad tackle on Ryan Jack.

Dundee 1-1 Inverness CT

As we enter the closing stages, BBC Scotland's Jim Spence reports that the home side are looking a bit heavy-legged and Inverness are the more menacing team.

Partick Thistle 1-1 Kilmarnock

Paul Gallacher makes an impressive stop when left one-on-one with Killie striker Tope Obadeyi, the Jags keeper getting down briskly to his right to parry the ball for a corner.


Hearts 4-1 Queen of the South (Eckersley)

Easy Street for Hearts now as Adam Eckersley bombs forward from left-back to finish off a slick counter-attack.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila

"The first 20 minutes were brilliant. We pressed well and created chances and had total control of the ball. If we had done that for 90 minutes, it would have been the game we wanted.

"We should have scored more goals but there are a couple of games where we haven't been effective enough. The most important thing is that we created chances but we should have killed the game off."

Celtic were 1-0 winners at Fir Park in the lunchtime kick-off.


Hearts 3-1 Queen of the South (Buaben)

Prince Buaben erases the memory of that first-half penalty miss as he arrows a shot into the corner of the net. Hearts are on course to remain unbeaten in the Championship after a wee wobble early in the second half.


Aberdeen are cruising to victory
SNS Group

Aberdeen are cruising to a victory that would move them into fourth place in the Premiership.

Partick Thistle 1-1 Kilmarnock

BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Firhill

"The second half has not been able to deliver the same considered, passing football from either side at Firhill, and consequently there have been no clear-cut chances. The 1-1 scoreline is a fair reflection on the balance of play, and this game could go either way. Might come down to which side wants the victory more."


Hearts 2-1 Queen of the South (Wilson)

The Championship leaders are back in front and it's pretty jammy for the Jam Tarts as the ball takes a nick off Alim Ozturk then hits skipper Danny Wilson to fly into the net.


Aberdeen 3-0 Hamilton

Niall McGinn is denied a second goal as his deflected shoot loops up against the crossbar before bouncing to safety.

Championship update

Hearts are under a bit of pressure now, with Queen of the South level at 1-1. Suddenly the picture at Ibrox is not so gloomy as Rangers lead Cowdenbeath 1-0. Falkirk and Hibernian are locked at 0-0, Alloa trail Dumbarton 1-0 and Livi are 3-1 up at Raith Rovers.

St Mirren 0-1 St Johnstone

As you were, Chick Young is back on the airwaves apparently unharmed and he's full of praise for St Mirren midfielder Kenny McLean, who is driving the home side forward in search of an equaliser.

A quite remarkable on-air squawk from BBC Scotland's Chick Young at St Mirren Park, followed by complete silence. I think someone should check on the wee man.

Dundee 1-1 Inverness CT

Ross Draper flashes a header into the side-netting as Inverness look the livelier side, buoyed by Billy Mackay's leveller.


Aberdeen 3-0 Hamilton (Rooney)

Adam Rooney slots home the spot kick to put the Dons firmly in charge. Grant Gillespie was the guilty man for Accies, grappling Jonny Hayes.


Hearts 1-1 Queen of the South

The visitors are level at Tynecastle as Iain Russell tucks away a penalty.


Aberdeen 2-0 Hamilton (McGinn)

Aberdeen double their advantage through Niall McGinn who scores his fourth goal of the season as he picks up the ball on the edge of the box and clips a shot over Hamilton's Michael McGovern.


Rangers 1-0 Cowdenbeath (Shiels)

BBC Scotland's Alasdair Lamont at Ibrox

"It's been abject stuff from Rangers but their best player has been Dean Shiels and it's he who finally gets them off the mark this afternoon. Kenny Miller heads the ball into his path from near the corner flag and Shiels, coming in from the left, slots a low effort from a tight angle into Robbie Thomson's net."


Dundee 1-1 Inverness CT (MacKay)

The Highlanders are level as Billy MacKay shows great striker's instincts to finish from close range following an almighty goalmouth scramble.
