Thanks for your company today as Celtic and Aberdeen rose to the top of the Premiership - just as they did last season. Join us again for a near full programme of games in midweek, starting on Tuesday with the Dundee derby at Tannadice and St Johnstone hosting Ross County.
- Aberdeen join Celtic and Hearts on maximum points
- Shinnie scores first-half opener for Dons
- Rooney doubles Dons' lead from the spot
- Rogic and Commons seal 2-0 win for Celtic at Partick
"I thought the players were excellent and it was a top-class performance.
"We asked them to treat this with the same important as the European game in midweek.
"It took us a while to get the first goal, but it was a great goal and well worth waiting for.
"I thought we were pretty dominant throughout.
"In the last 20 minutes, some of them were running on empty, but we had that 2-0 cushion."
Come on Mr McInnes. I have a hungry cat to feed back home!
"We got a response and were certainly more aggressive. We didn't lose as many tackles.
"But we didn't get forward enough and get up in support of Kris Boyd on the break in the first half.
"I felt the game plan was working until we lost a scrappy goal just before half time.
"We had a few chances to get back into the game, but we've got to take them at the top level.
"We were terrible last week, but the boys showed their fighting qualities today."
We are waiting for the reactions from the two managers, Derek McInnes and Gary Locke.
LN - a very very unhappy Dons fan: "Just arrived home after not getting into Pittodrie for the Aberdeen game. On what planet does a Dons v Killie game need to be all-ticket? Learned of new policy at the turnstile. Walked round to the ticket office and, judging by the length of the queue, we might have got in in time to see the second half. We left. First time in 40 years I have missed a home game when fit and free to go. Don't know if I will be back."
Ross Mitchell: "Looking at the table I would just about bet my house that it will look like that at the end of the season." 1 Celtic, 2 Aberdeen, 3 Hearts - that wasmy prediction too.
Scott Hamilton: "Why the surprise about the paucity of Kris Boyd's play? Was no-one watching last year when he was absolutely hopeless for Rangers? A ridiculous signing by Kilmarnock."
"Graeme Shinnie's finish was one that any top striker in Europe would have been happy with and there was no doubt where the points were going once the second goal went in. Gary Locke can take consolation from the fact that, when he did take the shackles off, they looked more like a team, but it was his tactics that caused problems in the first half."
Aberdeen join Celtic and Hearts at the top of the Scottish Premiership with maximum points from the opening two games after an easy win over lacklustre Kilmarnock.
"Will Gary Locke have learned that they can't play Kris Boyd if they don't get people up in support of him? They haven't looked too exposed when they have taken the shackles off and been more positive."
Kilmarnock defender Mark Connolly is next to go into the referee's book for a foul.
Fadi Audah: "Very early days, but I see a long hard season ahead for Killie!" I think lots of people will agree with you.
David Goodwillie is sent on by Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes in place on Niall McGinn.
Andrew Considine makes a good run and cross and his fellow full-back, Shay Logan, connects to force Killie keeper Jamie MacDonald into another save.
"Greg Kiltie has made a good impression since he came on and has been involved in all the good play Kilmarnock have had."
"The shackles seem to have been taken off for Kilmarnock and they seem to be enjoying it."
Greg Kiltie rides a challenge from Andrew Considine and his cross finds the head of Kris Boyd, but the striker's header from six yards goes wide.
The game has opened up and Cammy Smith just fails to get on the end of a ball across the face of the Kilmarnock goal.
Shay Logan forces Kilmarnock goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald into a fine save with a blistering long-range drive.
Kilmarnock also make a change, with forward Greg Kiltie replacing Rory McKenzie.
Aberdeen make two changes, with Jonny Hayes and Kenny McLean, who passed a fitness test to start, being replaced with Andrew Considine and Cammy Smith.
"It is a long, long way back for Kilmarnock, but they haven't given up and are pushing men forward. However, on the evidence here Aberdeen are the only side likely to add to the scoring."
Kilmarnock manager Gary Locke has brought on striker Josh Magennis to replace defender Mark O'Hara. A positive move, but is it too little too late and perhaps even suicidal as it could give the Dons more space to attack?
Darryl Westlake has to make a brave header as Aberdeen press forward and Kenny McLean just fails to extend the home side's lead.
Ross Brechin: "Graeme Shinnie opening his Aberdeen scoring account on his home league debut in style this afternoon."
Dougie Kinnear: "Boyd is continually complaining to the ref for no reason. I can only imagine that Boyd's half-time pie order was incorrect!" An incorrect pie? A meat one instead of a custard one?
Adam Rooney side-foots into the net, sending goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald the wrong way from the penalty spot to extend Aberdeen's lead.
Willo Flood is taken down and the Dons have a penalty.
First chance for Kilmarnock and a delightful cross from Kallum Higginbotham finds Scott Robinson stealing in unmarked, but the former Hearts midfielder's header is off target. Two of Gary Locke's summer signings threaten Aberdeen!
Tynecastle1874: "Seems Hearts were right to get rid of Gary Locke as manager and bring Craig Levein and Robbie Neilson in." Even though we are only two games into the season, Kilmarnock look to be in trouble: rather unimaginative summer signings and, at present, heading for a second straight defeat.
Rory McKenzie is the next Kilmarnock player to go into the referee's book for a clumsy challenge.
We're off again at Pittodrie. Will it continue to be the second one-sided game of the day in the Scottish Premiership?
Kris Boyd, the all-time top scorer in the Scottish Premier League, is getting pelters on BBC Radio Scotland from Willie Miller and Billy Stark for "offering nothing" up front for Kilmarnock. The ex-Scotland striker hardly started for Rangers in the Championship last season and we are maybe seeing why.
"The game has panned out the way Kilmarnock probably envisaged it, doing a lot of defending. We can sit here and say they have to be more ambitious, but they don't want to suffer another heavy defeat after last week and it is a dilemma for Gary Locke."
"It was played at a low tempo to start with, but Aberdeen grew into it and dominated in terms of possession and chances. A sublime goal and finish from Graeme Shinnie and they are absolutely miles ahead of Kilmarnock."
