Phew, what a second-half goalfest that was. And hopefully all those league permutations made more sense to you than they did me. I'm off to have a lie down. Join us again tomorrow for a more sedate, one-match live text as Premiership leaders face Dundee United.

- Penultimate week of Championship and Leagues One & Two
The first-ever SPFL play-off between the Highland League champions Brora Rangers and Edinburgh City ended all square at Meadowbank Stadium. Former Slavia Sofia striker Ortega Deniran gave City the lead after 57 minutes, but Martin McLean equalised for Brora with 11 minutes remaining. All to play for in the Highlands next weekend as they battle to face Montrose in the play-off final.
In League Two, East Fife have almost secured the final promotion play-off spot after their 3-0 defeat of Berwick Rangers. Elgin City's hopes ended with an amazing 5-4 home defeat by Annan Athletic, who need to win their final game and hope that East Fife lose heavily on the final day to reach the play-offs.
Brechin City secured their promotion play-off place in League One after coming from two goals behind to draw away to Stenhousemuir. That result means that Stenny drop to second bottom and face the prospect of a relegation play-off after being overtaken by Ayr United after their 4-0 hammering of already doomed Stirling Albion.
In League Two, the headlines are that Forfar take over at the top after dismantling disintegrating Dunfermline 3-1 at East End Park. However, Stranraer and Greenock Morton, who started the day first and second, have the chance to go to the top themselves as they face one another in the game just kicked off, with the action live on BBC Alba.
"It was excellent. The players take a lot of credit.
"We will keep trying the best we can, we still have the belief and you never know.
"Everybody writing us off, the shackles were off and I told them to play with that freedom.
"With some of the young boys coming in, we had that bit of enthusiasm.
"Hopefully we can get four wins and we'll see where that takes us."
At the bottom of the Championship, everything is going Livingston's way after their 4-0 hammering of Raith Rovers, Alloa's defeat by Hibs and Hearts' late winner away to Cowdenbeath. Livi are now off the bottom, ahead of Alloa on goal difference and a point behind the Blue Brazil, with their two rivals facing one another next weekend as Livi host Queen of the South.
Queen of the South's 2-1 win over Dumbarton secures the Dumfries side's place in the play-offs. At the moment, it looks like they will face Rangers in that two-leg affair.
At the top of the Championship, Hibs climb to second by hammering Alloa 4-1 and a win at Falkirk would secure their place in the play-off semi-final. Rangers are now third after their disappointing 2-2 draw at home to the Bairns and Stuart McCall's side need to win away to Hearts next weekend and hope Hibs slip up if they are to move back into second.
Kilmarnock could yet be dragged into the relegation play-off place and remain seven points ahead of second-bottom Motherwell after that 4-1 hammering by St Mirren. The bottom-of-the-table Buddies have suddenly come to life, but it is likely to have come too late, although they do edge to within seven points of Well after that excellent victory.
Partick Thistle leapfrog Kilmarnock into eighth place and that 2-1 win in Dingwall looks to have secured the Glasgow side's place in the Premiership next season.
Ross County's nine-game unbeaten run comes to an end in a performance that was devoid of ideas and of few chances for the home side. The Dingwall outfit are six points ahead of second-bottom Motherwell and that could give some renewed hope for the side who lost at Hamilton last night as they look to avoid a play-off place.
That defeat for Inverness allows St Johnstone to move to within four points of the side sitting third in the table after the Perth side's 2-0 win at Dundee. The Saints have leapfrogged Dundee United, who are away to leaders Celtic tomorrow, while Dundee's dream of Europa League qualification seems to have disappeared and Paul Hartley's side remain in sixth.
"We knew the significance of winning today, but it will take an absolute collapse for Celtic not to win the title now.
"Inverness showed exactly whey they have been so consistent.
"They were excellent in the first half and our goalkeeper has done well to keep us in it.
"The conditions benefited the team with the wind and we showed the desire and will to win we've had this season.
"At no point did I think we were going to lose the game because I know the boys."
"I feel for the boys. We were good entertainment today and it just wasn't to be.
"I thought we were the better side in the first half and would go on and win it after taking the lead.
"But that's what Aberdeen have got. Their status demands that they dig it out.
"They always seem to be able to pip us at the post."
