Get involved

That's it from us today then folks. Thanks very much for joining us on a day of great action from Scotland's top flight.

Aberdeen remain top but Celtic have cut the gap to two points, while St Mirren are off bottom spot after an impressive win at Ross County, who are now at the foot of the table.

Do join us again on Tuesday night when Inverness Caledonian Thistle entertain St Johnstone.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

"We showed a few different sides to our game today.

"Dundee were really clinical, they have good players and you have to credit them, particularly for the two goals in the first half.

"Thankfully we managed to get the equaliser and it was no more than the players deserved. If the match lasted another five minutes we'd have won it.

"Ash Taylor has left on crutches but we'll get him scanned. It's a knee injury of some sort so hopefully it won't be too bad."

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright

"We started well and got a really good goal, although it took a deflection.

"When you've lost a couple of games it's important you start well. So there's a huge emphasis on starting well.

"I was really pleased with some of the younger players.

"We know if we keep winning games we'll stay in the top six. We have to keep our standards up.

"I'm always hoping to do some business. We are looking at a couple of loans but there are a lot of factors. I'd still like to bring someone in to freshen things up."

Today's result in Dingwall was massive for St Mirren and caretaker manager Gary Teale, who is hoping to land the job on a full time basis.

Could his side's 2-1 win, with 10 men, be enough to earn him the manager's job?

Dundee manager Paul Hartley

"We've done well in the games against Aberdeen and I thought we were in control at 3-1. The way we set up was terrific and we scored three fantastic goals. I'm really pleased with how the players played. We showed we're a good team.

"Gary (Harkins) has all the ability in the world and he was outstanding today. Greg Stewart has been absolutely terrific for us. He's getting better and better.

"We knew Aberdeen would put us under pressure and we just didn't deal with some of the crosses coming in."

We're waiting to get some reaction from an action-packed day in the Premiership.

BBC Scotland pundit Barry Wilson in Dingwall

"St Mirren weren't a force going forward in the second half but as soon as Ross County equalised they showed a lack of discipline. Stevie Mallan's goal was St Mirren's only chance of the second half but it was a great header. It's a fantastic result for St Mirren but County are in real trouble."

BBC Scotland pundit Allan Preston at McDiarmid Park

"Partick didn't deserve to get anything today. St Johnstone had better possession and chances. They will give Aberdeen a right good game on Friday."

BBC Scotland pundit Willie Miller at Pittodrie

"It was a fabulous game. It was real quality goals from Dundee and a great fightback from Aberdeen. I thought they had run out of ideas but right towards the end of the game they got a break with the penalty. It worked out for them when Ryan Jack scored from close range. It looked like they were going down but they managed to rescue a draw."

Ryan Jack secured Aberdeen a point when he scored late on to earn the Pittodrie men a 3-3 draw.

ROSS COUNTY 0-1 ST MIRREN

Worrying times for Ross County as they try to get back into the match against a St Mirren side who have been playing with 10 men since the first half. If it stays like this the Buddies will move off the bottom of the table, and the Staggies will replace them.

BBC Scotland pundit Allan Preston at McDiarmid Park
