Alloa and Hearts are kicking off now but I'm going to say my goodbyes. Remember, you can tune into BBC Radio Scotland commentary and see the game live on BBC ALBA. A win for the visitors will see them move 16 points clear at the top of the Championship.

See you all tomorrow for Celtic v Rangers (kick off 13:30) and congratulations to Dundee United for clinching a place in the League Cup final. Cheers.

Tomorrow is all about Celtic v Rangers in the second League Cup semi-final. The Hampden gound staff will be busy filling in all the divots at the national stadium since the pitch was cutting up quite badly during Dundee United's 2-1 win over Aberdeen.

We have the big match covered with bells and whistles. It's on the telly, radio and online and you can watch it all unfold with us.

The game is being televised live in 54 countries, so there's no excuse for missing out.

BBC Sportsound host Richard Gordon exhales a heavy sigh as he informs BBC Radio Scotland listeners that it's been 15 years since Aberdeen have won a game at Hampden...

Aberdeen will be kicking themselves since they had a few excellent chances in the second half and there was a period after Donervon Daniels' opening goal when United were really wobbling at the back. No reaction from the Dons yet. Manager Derek McInnes must be holding a long dressing room chat.

Dundee United winger Gary Mackay-Steven

"It's an unbelievable feeling. We just want to go one better and win some silverware this season.

"For long periods it could have gone either way. It was quite open. It was end-to-end.

"Dowser deserves great credit. He came off the bench and really forced Aberdeen back with his driving runs. It shows the great strength we have on the bench."

Dundee United striker Nadir Ciftci

[on his match-winning goal] "It was minimal but a touch is a touch.

"We worked hard as a team and we had the best chances in the game. We kept believing and kept doing what the gaffer told us to do.

"It's not easy playing against Aberdeen they work so hard but we have a lot of pace and when we got it back to 1-1 I thought it was coming for us."

Championship round-up

Having battered Raith Rovers all afternoon, Hibs are made to pay for missing a hatful of chances, with ex-Jambo Christian Nade popping up with a stoppage-time leveller. It means Alan Stubbs' team have blown the chance to leapfrog Rangers. Falkirk and Dumbarton shared six goals and Queen of the South hammered five past Cowdenbeath.

Runaway leaders Hearts take on Alloa in half an hour. You can watch that game live on BBC ALBA or listen to BBC Radio Scotland commentary - or both.

"The pitch was cutting up. It's not great for football and it made passing difficult.

"I thought we were the better team in the first half and had a couple of chances. The second half wasn't pretty - it could have gone either way.

"I thought Nadir Ciftci deserved his goal for the way he battled for us up front."


Dundee 1-1 Hamilton

We had to wait a long time for a goal then we got another straight away as the points were shared at Dens Park. It stops Hamilton's losing run but the 10-man visitors will be frustrated not to have held on to their lead.


Inverness CT 1-1 Ross County

Inverness miss the chance to move second in the Premiership as Ross County pick up a valuable point in their bid to avoid the drop.


Dundee Utd 2-1 Aberdeen

Nadir Ciftci
SNS Group

Dundee United book themselves into the League Cup final, coming from behind to sink Aberdeen at Hampden.


Motherwell 1-1 St Johnstone

Ten-man Motherwell hit back to earn a share of the spoils, with John Sutton grabbing the equaliser to Murray Davidson's opener. The Steelmen stay 11th in the table.


Dundee 1-1 Hamilton (Stewart)

Hamilton's lead does not last long as Dundee striker Greg Stewart lofts a shot into the far corner of the net from the edge of the penalty box.


Dundee 0-1 Hamilton (Canning)

Give yourself a goal bonus! Player-manager Martin Canning rises to meet a corner and heads 10-man Hamilton into the lead from 10 yards.

Dundee Utd 2-1 Aberdeen (Ciftci)

Aberdeen are pushing men forward, leaving gaps in defence as Ryan Dow's deflected shot trundles wide. The substitute has made a big impact since replacing Charlie Telfer early in the second half.

Dundee 0-0 Hamilton

James McPake goes close to celebrating his contract extension with a goal for Dundee, but the defender's header from a corner is well held by Hamilton goalkeeper Michael McGovern.


Dundee Utd 2-1 Aberdeen (Ciftci)

Dundee United have come from behind to lead as Nadir Ciftci, looking a fraction offside, rises to get a glancing header on a deep cross. The ball skips off the surface and Scott Brown looks to have it covered only to see the ball squirm through his hands.


Inverness CT 1-1 Ross County (Warren og)

Caley Thistle defender Gary Warren diverts a cross in from the right past his goalkeeper Ryan Esson.


Dundee Utd 1-1 Aberdeen

This time it's Aberdeen who must score as Ryan Jack finds the head of David Goodwillie with a cross from the right. The striker gets his header down but it slams into the turf and bounces over from eight yards.


Dundee Utd 1-1 Aberdeen

Mark Reynolds is sloppy with a headed back-pass and Ryan Dow is on to it in a flash to poke a shot round advancing keeper Scott Brown. The ball is rolling in surely, but no, here comes Reynolds charging back to mop up his own mistake with a dramatic goal-line intervention.


Motherwell 1-1 St Johnstone (Sutton)

John Sutton equalises for Motherwell after a fine through ball by Dom Thomas. The Englishman lashes it high into the net from a very similar position to where Murray Davidson scored for St Johnstone.

Motherwell 0-1 St Johnstone

Motherwell are still looking threatening despite being down to 10 men, with Dom Thomas the latest to go close with a stinging half-volley from 20 yards.

Dundee Utd 1-1 Aberdeen

This is more like it now as the game roars from one end to the other. Aberdeen forward Niall McGinn does well to pick out Ryan Jack with a composed, low delivery but his team-mates does not have the same clear head and miscues his shot from 10 yards, allowing Radoslaw Cierzniak to claw the ball over the crossbar.

Championship update

Martin Boyle scored for Hibs
SNS Group

Hibernian have been banging on the door all afternoon and their pressure pays off as Martin Boyle meets a Scott Allan pass to slide in a shot at home to Raith Rovers. The same player hits the crossbar soon after when it looks easier to score. Falkirk are now 3-2 down to Dumbarton and Queen of the South lead at Cowdenbeath.

Dundee 0-0 Hamilton

Greg Stewart is single-handedly trying to torture short-handed Hamilton as the striker blasts another effort just over the crossbar from long range.


Dundee Utd 1-1 Aberdeen

Two Aberdeen corners and two great chances! The first falls to Donervon Daniels and his shot from eight yards is blocked by a lunging Callum Morris. The second is nodded into the net by Adam Rooney but the striker is penalised for a slight nudge on Calum Butcher.

Dundee 0-0 Hamilton

Dundee are beginning to make their one-man advantage tell and Greg Stewart weaves his way into the penalty box before firing low past the near post via a deflection.


Dundee Utd 1-1 Aberdeen (Morris)

Dundee United are level as Callum Morris steams in to meet a Gary Mackay-Steven corner with a powerful header and he just wants it more than anyone else, including keeper Scott Brown, who should probably do better.

Dundee Utd 0-1 Aberdeen (Daniels)

Aberdeen are going for the jugular now as Peter Pawlett streaks in behind the suddenly disjointed United defence to fire in an angled strike. Radoslaw Cierzniak gets down to smother it at the near post. That might settle the keeper's nerves.


Dundee 0-0 Hamilton

Hamilton midfielder Dougie Imrie is sent off for an off-the-ball incident that leaves Greg Stewart writhing on the ground.

Motherwell 0-1 St Johnstone

Motherwell's Fraser Kerr, on as a half-time sub, nearly equalises with a header from a corner but St Johnstone forward Steven MacLean heads it off the line.


Dundee Utd 0-1 Aberdeen (Daniels)

United goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak is all over the place here as he flaps at a corner and misses it altogether. The ball falls for David Goodwillie right in front of goal but he can't react quickly enough - just getting the merest of touches - and Jaroslaw Fojut sticks out a long leg to make a great goal-line clearance.

Dundee 0-0 Hamilton

Dundee boss Paul Hartley is not messing around, making a double substitution at half-time. Luka Tankulić and Stephen McGinn are on for David Clarkson and Kevin Thomson.


Dundee Utd 0-1 Aberdeen (Daniels)

It's a dream debut for Donervon Daniels as he leaps to meet a long throw-in from Abdrew Considine. The on-loan defender's backward header loops straight in, with keeper Radoslaw Cierzniak not looking too clever.

Dougie Kinnear: "Great to see a young lad like Mackay-Steven get a run out in a big competition this year before a season on the bench! #bbcscotfootball."

Gerard Boyd: "If Hampden pitch doesn't look good now what about tomorrow's game?!"

Fraz: "United will win this, easily.


We're up and running at most of the grounds again..

Dundee Utd 0-0 Aberdeen

Aberdeen debutant Donervon Daniels comfortably deals with Charlie Telfer
SNS Group

Well, after the big build-up I gave this game, it's been a bit of a stinker so far. We've not seen enough of the talented players out there. Let's hope for better from the likes of Peter Pawlett, Gary Makay-Steven, Jonny Hayes and Stuart Armstrong after the break.
