'It was a nice way to finish'

Retiring Aberdeen defender Russell Anderson

"It would've been nice to have gone out with a win but unfortunately it wasn't to be.

"Like a lot of these big days when they come around, there's a big build up to them and you spend long time waiting for it and before you know it, it's over."

"The reception I got before and afterwards was everything I could've hoped for. So, it was a nice way to finish, albeit we lost the game."

'We wanted to stay in the league - we've done that'

Dundee boss Paul Hartley

"We didn't have that final pass, final shot or cutting edge today that United had

"We'll be younger next season with more energy in the team. I'm delighted with the guys we've brought in and want one or two others.

"First and foremost, we wanted to stay in the league and we've done that. Next season will be more difficult."

'Excellent' in Dundee derby

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara

"I thought we were excellent today and could've scored one or two more."

"The most important thing is about building and moving forward; making sure we can keep our players for longer."

Van Dijk 'is going to be here'

Celtic boss Ronny Deila

"As I said from the first moment, we want to improve and want progress.

"This stadium is nothing without the supporters; we're going to do this together."

Asked about the future of defender Virgil van Dijk, who has been linked with a move in the summer, Deila says: "He's going to be here.

"He is not going anywhere before the qualifiers. Hopefully he is going to be here for a long, long time. You never know in football but he is going to be here for the qualifiers."

'We want Champions League football'

Celtic assistant boss John Collins

"We want to keep our top players and the supporters want them here. We'll enjoy today and come back in four weeks' time for the European qualifiers. We want to be in the Champions League.

"Ronny Deila is focused, driven and wants to take the club forward. He's a younger version of me! He's never happy and wants to get better..."

'A brilliant season'

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon

"It's an incredible comeback story and I don't want it to end. It's been difficult [for Ronny Deila] to come into such a big club, but he's been brilliant all season."

Saints plaudits

Tom English

BBC Scotland

"Most managers talk guff when they say their team hasn't got the credit they deserve. In St Johnstone's case, it's probably true. Fine season..."

Cup dreams

Inverness CT boss John Hughes tells BBC Sportsound's Chick "Chico" Young that, despite disappointment over losing five goals at Celtic Park today, all attention turns to next weekend's Scottish Cup final against Falkirk.

Demolition derby

Despite a Dundee derby demolition, United fail to dislodge St Johnstone from fourth spot but nonetheless an impressive end to the season for Jackie McNamara's troops.

FULL-TIME

Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

Saints secure fourth spot

Tommy Wright's St Johnstone finish fourth in the Premiership, meaning they will play in the Europa League should Inverness CT win the Scottish Cup next weekend.

FULL-TIME

Celtic 5-0 Inverness CT

Aberdeen 0-1 St Johnstone

Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

Nadir Ciftci performs a showy jig out on the right, dancing over the ball as if it were on fire. Gary Irvine is sufficiently unimpressed to foul him and from the free-kick, Ciftci picks up possession and dinks in a Rabona-style cross for Ryan McGowan to volley wide.

GOAL

Celtic 5-0 Inverness CT (Commons)

It's five for Celtic as substitute Kris Commons capitalises on good work by Emilio Izaguirre to thunder home from just outside the penalty area. Cracking strike!

Huddle up...

Chris McLaughlin

BBC Sport

"The Leigh Griffiths goal sets off a massive huddle inside Celtic Park. The hacks look awkwardly at their laptops to avoid eye contact as the fans in front turn round to bounce around."

Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

John Souttar shows he is more than a mere one-dimensional defender as he bursts into the Dees' box and tries a cheeky backheel six yards from goal, but keeper Kyle Letheren smothers his effort.

Dundee Utd 3-0 Dundee

Jim Spence

BBC Sport

"United very much in command here in front of over ten thousand of a crowd. But that St Johnstone score has quietened the Utd fans a shade.

"Emotional day for Dave Roy next to me in the media gantry. Stepping down after 25 years of unpaid work at the Dark blues filming their games home and away. A real unsung hero at Dens and a great bluenose."

Aberdeen 0-1 St Johnstone

As Aberdeen seek a response, Joe Shaughnessy, who will join St Johnstone in the summer, has a pop and his shot is tipped over by Alan Mannus.

GOAL

Celtic 4-0 Inverness CT (Griffiths)

The champions are turning the screw now. James Vincent coughs up possession allowing Kris Commons to thread a great ball through to Leigh Griffiths and, with a swish of his left boot, the striker makes it 4-0 to Celtic.

Dundee Utd 3-0 Dundee

Jim Spence

BBC Sport

"Ryan McGuigan powerful header clicks the bar with Kyle Letheren sprawling to get a touch, but danger averted for Dundee..."

GOAL

Celtic 3-0 Inverness CT (Scepovic)

Stefan Scepovic making a late bid for Celtic stardom after a year in the wilderness. His second of the match brings the Celtic fans back to their feet, collecting James Forrest's pass and netting the home side's third.

GOAL

Aberdeen 0-1 St Johnstone (Kane)

Substitute Chris Kane marks his introduction with a fine finish. Streaking away from the Dons defence on the right a mere 30 seconds after coming on and he drills a shot low beyond Scott Brown.

Tommy Wright's men are back in the driving seat for fourth place and a potential European spot.

Dundee Utd 3-0 Dundee

Dundee defender James McPake is yellow carded by referee Bobby Madden for a late challenge on United's two-goal hero Nadir Ciftci.

Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

Jim Spence

BBC Sport

"It's been a dark few months for Jackie McNamara but signs here that the corner may have been turned. 3-0 up and looking very comfortable. With the signings Paul Hartley has made though, Dundee will be a much more attacking outfit next season."

Gordon's Kitchen Nightmares?

Chris McLaughlin

BBC Sport

"Celtic back on top in terms of possession but it's all gone a little flat. Craig Gordon looks like a man trying to decide what's for dinner..."

Celtic 2-0 Inverness CT

Celtic striker Stefan Scepovic looks in the mood for more goals but he narrowly misses out on a long ball behind the Inverness CT defence as it trundles out for a goal kick.

Dundee United 3-0 Dundee

Jim Spence

BBC Sport

"There's only one team in Dundee goes the war cry from Utd fans. It's a long way back for the Dees now..."

United relishing derby day

Jim Spence

BBC Sport

"A cool finish from Spittal, racing onto a through ball, drawing keeper forward and slotting home from 16 yards..."

Celtic 2-0 Inverness CT

Chris McLaughlin

BBC Sport

"Inverness CT having more of a go at the start of this second half but Celtic look to be in second gear..."

GOAL

Dundee United 3-0 Dundee (Spittal)

Blair Spittal wins a challenge in the centre circle, gets back to his feet and runs towards the Dundee goal to pick up a through ball from John Rankin and slot the ball calmly past Kyle Letheren. United are running riot...

Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

Aberdeen counter, with Cammy Smith bursting through the middle at a rapid rate of knots, but Tam Scobbie is able to get a couple of studs on the ball with a sliding challenge on the edge of the box.
