Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs on BBC Radio Scotland

FT: Livingston 1-3 Hibernian

"We could have made it easier for ourselves, but the important thing was getting three points.

"The sending off changes the game, but we had opportunities to finish it before that.

"It was not easy out there and our decisions could have been better, but it was a good response after Saturday.

"We are down to the last two games and it keeps it ticking over and we'll see what happens in the play-offs."

Livingston manager Mark Burchill on BBC Radio Scotland

FT: Livingston 1-3 Hibernian

"I am delighted with the work rate and fitness of the guys and I think the game changed with the sending off.

"I am not for hard luck stories and we march on to Raith Rovers on Saturday.

"If we go and get the six points, I think we'll be in the division again next season."

FT: Livingston 1-3 Hibernian

BBC Radio Scotland pundit Murdo MacLeod was at the match at Almondvale tonight and thinks Livingston will still get enough points in their final two games to avoid the automatic relegation spot. He also thinks Hibs have the easier run-in than Rangers and that this will put pressure on the Ibrox side in the race to finish second in the Championship.

Dundee manager Paul Hartley on BBC Radio Scotland

FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

"I thought our final ball let us down, but we had a good disciplined performance.

"Two set-pieces done for us, but I am pleased with the players.

"You can see at the end that my players were knackered because Celtic are a quality side and play the ball about so well.

"But I thought we handled it well tonight and overall this season I'm proud of the players."

FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

Celtic boss Ronny Deila also pointed out that he was delighted to hand 17-year-old Kieran Tierney his debut as a late sub for Emilio Izaguirre at left-back and suggested he is "a big talent".

Celtic manager Ronny Deila on BBC Radio Scotland

"That was a little bit naive of us to concede a goal so late.

"But we controlled the game until late on and we scored good goals.

"That is a good effort to come back from 120 minutes on Sunday.

"We won comfortably in the end and put ourselves in a good position and the title's getting closer and closer."

Paul Black: "10 goals for VVD this season is a great return for a centre back. The lad is phenomenal."

BBC Radio Scotland pundit Willie Miller

FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

"Celtic by far deserve their victory. Craig Gordon was not really tested on too many occasions. The strange thing was Dundee actually managed to beat him. Their possession was hopeless and they managed to dig out a respective scoreline even though it was a canter for Celtic."

FT: Livingston 1-3 Hibernian

Hibs move to within a point of second-top Rangers in the Championship with only two games remaining as they battle for positions in the promotion play-offs. Livingston miss a chance to move off the bottom on goal difference ahead of Alloa Athletic.

FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

Dundee remain four points adrift of St Johnstone in sixth place.

FT: Dundee 1-2 Celtic

Celtic move eight points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Premiership once more and they hardly needed to break sweat.

FULL-TIME

Livingston 1-3 Hibernian

FULL-TIME

Dundee 1-2 Celtic

Dundee 1-2 Celtic

Dundee are living dangerously as they hand another free-kick outside the penalty box. However, this time Virgil van Dijk fires straight at the goalkeeper.

Dundee 1-2 Celtic

Three minutes of stoppage time for Dundee to save a point.

GOAL

Dundee 1-2 Celtic (Jim McAlister)

The first time that Dundee get behind the Celtic defence and they are suddenly back in the game. Luka Tankulic plays a superb ball behind Nir Biton and Paul McGinn's low cross is swept home by Jim McAlister.

Dundee 0-2 Celtic

At last a clear-cut change for Dundee, but Luka Tankulic blasts well over the bar from 12 yards.

GOAL

Livingston 1-3 Hibernian (Dominique Malonga)

It's a third for Hibs. Dominique Malonga dances his way towards the six-yard box then slips a shot past Darren Jamieson.

Off the line!

Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

Fraser Fyvie picks out Liam Fontaine with a chip into the Livi box and Declan Gallagher sweeps off the line after goalkeeper Darren Jamieson is beaten by the header.

Andy Campbell

BBC Sport Scotland

"Just over 15 minutes to go in Livingston. Hibs are comfortable in possession and the hosts, who are a man down, are tiring."

Dundee 0-2 Celtic

Celtic bring on Kris Commons and John Guidetti for James Forrest and Leigh Griffiths. Two additional scoring threats for the visitors, so it is not getting easier for the hosts, who have not yet seriously threatened Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

BBC Radio Scotland pundit Willie Miller

Dundee 0-2 Celtic

"It hasn't been an exciting game, but you have to illuminated by the quality of the goals tonight."

GOAL

Dundee 0-2 Celtic (Virgil van Dijk)

Dundee centre-half James McPake is booked for a foul on Stuart Armstrong and Virgil van Dijk takes a couple of steps before powering a drive past the home goalkeeper. Almost a mirror image of the Dutch defender's goal on Sunday in the Scottish Cup sem-final against Inverness.

MISSED PENALTY

Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

Hibs have a penalty and that seemed harsh on Livi. Kyle Jacobs appeared to win the ball in his challenge on Dylan McGeouch. However, the Hibs midfielder has his spot-kick beaten away by Darren Jamieson.

Dundee 0-1 Celtic

Dundee manager Paul Hartley sends on German forward Luka Tankulic in place of the ineffectual Alex Harris.

Jamie McGilchrist: "GMS scoring against Dundee. No United fan saw that coming."

Hannah Ross: "GMS is going become a future star for Scotland - no doubt."

Dundee 0-1 Celtic

It is still Celtic applying the pressure and Scott Bain has to punch clear at the back post before a Leigh Griffiths shot from 10 yards is beaten away by the goalkeeper.

Dundee 0-1 Celtic

There's that shot on goal for Dundee at last. James McPake thinks he is Virgil van Dijk for a few moments, breaking from defence and even putting in a wee dribble, but he slips as he tries to shoot and goalkeeper Craig Gordon saves easily.

Dundee 0-1 Celtic

Celtic midfielder Nir Biton has shown in recent weeks that he can give the bit of a welly and the Israeli curls a powerful drive wide from 25 yards. Up the hill too!

KICK-OFF

Dundee 0-1 Celtic

Dundee kick-off at Dens Park. Will they get a shot on target now that they are shooting down the hill?

BBC Sport Scotland

"The first half ended on a sour note for the hosts, who were already trailing when they lost Darren Cole to a second yellow card. Hibs looked good going forward in the first half and deservedly scored two goals, but Livi have fought their corner well and scored a superb equaliser."

RED CARD

Livingston 1-2 Hibernian

Livi are down to 10 men. Former Rangers defender Darren Cole concedes a free-kick and receives a second yellow card.

Dundee 0-1 Celtic

The Dundee defence are caught sleeping as they expect the ball to run out for a goal kick. But Celtic scorer Gary Mackay-Steven doesn't give up on it and his low cross spells danger before being cleared. James Forrest is next to threaten for Celtic but shoots straight at goalkeeper Scott Bain from 15 yards.

BBC Radio Scotland pundit Willie Miller

Dundee 0-1 Celtic

"Dundee have got themselves back into the game. They lost their passing, their ability, their shape, after the goal, but they have realised they are only one behind."
