Aberdeen clap

That's enough from me. Congratulations to Aberdeen and Celtic on convincing victories. Will these two still be scrapping it out at the end of the season? There's a long, long way to go but the Dons are looking like the real deal right now. That's eight wins from eight and they lead the way by five points.

We'll be back with midweek League Cup action so make sure you join us for that. Enjoy what's left of your weekend.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila

"It was a brilliant performance. The atmosphere was nice and we won 6-0. It doesn't get better than that.

"Emilio Izaguirre played well against Ajax and was a little bit unfortunate to get the red card. He played well again today but the penalty was very poor! He's not the first guy to get a red card in his life. You just have to bounce back."

The Celtic boss turns 40 tomorrow, so the 6-0 win over Dundee was a nice early present...

More from Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes

"Getting the first goal was important and Hearts started to chase the game maybe more than they needed to and we were able to pick them off. I wasn't too pleased with the first 20-25 minutes of the second half but we're not going to get it all our own way at a place like this and Hearts showed great fight and tenacity."

And on a potential title challenge?

"Every time we win a game, I'm probably going to have to answer the same question. But it's still very early. We just want to be a competitive team and I think we have a squad that can be successful. It's been a great start."

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland

"Hearts are a good side and they don't lose many at home but we were always confident that the team we picked could get the job done. The first half was full of intelligence, with great quality to our goals and our passing movement."

Dejected Dundee boss Paul Hartley also reveals that defender James McPake was shown a yellow card after the final whistle for a spot of mouthing off...

Dundee manager Paul Hartley on BBC Radio Scotland

"It could have been a lot worse if it wasn't for the goalkeeper. We were very poor today. Some of the goals we gave away were shambolic. We had a game plan but we couldn't carry it out and that performance is not acceptable."

Of course, highlights from Saturday's games will be online from 18:00. You'll be able to see Billy McKay scoring for Dundee United against former club Inverness CT.

You can watch all of the weekend highlights on Sportscene tonight. There's a change of time and channel tonight, with the programme on at 22:00 on BBC Two Scotland.

Celtic 6-0 Dundee

That was a bad day at the office for Dundee, who have Scott Bain to thank for keeping the score down with some impressive saves. The Dark Blues stay sixth in the table on 11 points from eight games.

Will Emilio Izaguirre ever get another chance like that for a hat-trick? He's not too upset by the sounds of it as the Sportsound commentary team report that he is smiling broadly and applauding all corners of Celtic Park.

FULL-TIME

Celtic 6-0 Dundee

Celtic do a demolition job on Dundee to stay five points behind Premiership leaders Aberdeen. Emilio Izaguirre bagged two goals - it was that sort of day for the visitors - but the Honduran left-back missed out on a hat-trick by blazing a penalty off target. Tom Rogic, Leigh Griffiths, Scott Brown and Nadir Ciftci got the other goals.

Celtic 6-0 Dundee

A few Dundee players have chucked it but James McPake still cares enough to throw himself in front of a shot from Gary Mackay-Steven. Nir Bitton is then left all alone to have a pop but his strike from distance sails over.

GOAL

Celtic 6-0 Dundee (Ciftci)

Hold on. Nadir Ciftci does get on the score sheet and it's all down to a woeful back-pass from Gary Irvine. The Celtic striker accepts the gift gleefully, tucking a neat shot underneath the exposed and over-worked Scott Bain.

GOAL

Celtic 5-0 Dundee (Brown)

Nadir Ciftci settles for an assist as he picks out Scott Brown with a clever cut-back and the Celtic captain tucks it away.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Celtic 4-0 Dundee

Nadir Ciftic thinks he has his first Celtic goal but the whistle had gone as Scott Bain fumbles from a free-kick.

GREAT SAVE!

Celtic 4-0 Dundee

Scott Bain makes the latest in a growing list of good saves today as he leaps up to claw away a smart, curling strike from Celtic skipper Scott Brown.

Celtic 4-0 Dundee

Dundee substitutes Riccardo Calder and Rhys Healy combine and the latter heads over the top from a great cross.

Celtic 4-0 Dundee

It's fizzling out a bit as Celtic see out a comfortable victory. There's still time for Emilio Izaguirre to atone for that penalty miss and get his hat-trick. "It's walking pace," says co-commentator Mark Wilson on BBC Radio Scotland.

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

Hearts manager Robbie Neilson on BBC Radio Scotland

"We can't allow teams to come to Tynecastle and score three goals - we made far too many sloppy mistakes today. I was impressed by Aberdeen but if we had played like we can we could have pushed them all the way."

Celtic 4-0 Dundee

BBC Radio Scotland commentator Rob Maclean

"He's still shaking his head, Izaguirre. He can't believe it. The pressure was too much."

MISSED PENALTY

Emilio Izaguirre misses from the penalty spot
SNS Group

And he blows his big chance! A shocker, smashed over the crossbar from Emilio Izaguirre.

PENALTY

Celtic 4-0 Dundee

The hat-trick is on! Penalty to the home side as Callum McGregor is tripped and Emilio Izaguirre has got the ball...

GOAL

Celtic 4-0 Dundee (Izaguirre)

Emilio Izaguirre was miserable on Thursday as his red card against Ajax perhaps cost his side a Europa League victory, now he's on a hat-trick! This time the left-back seizes on a deflected cross from Saidy Janko to finish from close range.

SUBSTITUTION

Celtic 3-0 Dundee

Leigh Griffiths gets a rest and Nadir Cifcti gets the chance to impress with over half an hour to play. The replacement striker won't be too popular with the Dundee players after that sorry biting episode at the end of last season.

GOAL

Celtic 3-0 Dundee (Izaguirre)

No interruption to Celtic's dominance as they claim a third goal when Emilio Izaguirre plays a smart one-two with Kris Commons then steers shot past Scott Bain with his right foot.

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

BBC Scotland's Chris McLaughlin at Tynecastle: "1600 Aberdeen fans head home very happy after watching their side destroy Hearts at home today. If the Dons continue to play this way for the foreseeable future, I'd be astonished if we don't see a title challenge come May. They've answered every question that's been asked of them."

FULL-TIME

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

That's eight wins from eight for Aberdeen, who will stay five points clear of Celtic at the top of the Premiership. It could be more if Dundee produce something spectacular in the second half in Glasgow.

SUBSTITUTION

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

We'll get three minutes of stoppage-time and Aberdeen are eating up a few seconds by replacing Niall McGinn with Ryan McLaughlin. Two assists and a goal for McGinn. Nice work.

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

Aberdeen clear their lines again and Ash Taylor's header falls to Osman Sow, who gets a shot on target from 23 yards. Danny Wallace is right behind it though and makes an easy save.

KICK-OFF

Celtic 2-0 Dundee

We're up and running at Celtic Park again...

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

Five minutes remaining at Tynecastle and the crowd has gone a bit flat as home supporters come to terms with what looks like a third defeat on the trot.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

David Goodwillie gets an earful from the home support, who maybe don't appreciate his physical approach, as he makes way for Josh Parker. He can be very pleased with his day's work after knocking in two goals for the impressive Dons.

Hearts also make a change, with Billy King replacing Prince Buaben.

YELLOW CARD

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

Paul Quinn is cautioned for upending Osman Sow and from the free-kick on the left angle of the penalty area Hearts skipper Alim Ozturk fires in a dangerous delivery. It clips the head of Aberdeen captain Ryan Jack and spins narrowly wide of the back post.

Leigh Griffiths scores Celtic's second goal at home to Dundee

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths is now the Premiership's leading scorer with seven after his first-half strike...

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

Niall McGinn tries to catch Hearts keeper Neil Alexander out with a raking free-kick but the ball rustles the side-netting.

HALF-TIME

Celtic 2-0 Dundee

Celtic are 2-0 up
SNS Group

BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Celtic Park: "Dundee are fortunate to only be two goals behind at Celtic Park. The home side creates six other clear chances, with Tom Rogic in particular a prominent figure in the final third. Dundee have been too deep and too poor in possession. It's been comfortable for Celtic and they are in complete control."

Hearts 1-3 Aberdeen

Hearts have lifted the tempo again as Sam Nicholson has a lash at goal. The effort takes a deflection off a defender in white and skids wide.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Celtic 2-0 Dundee

An opportunity for Dundee but Craig Gordon does well to read Gary Harkins' free-kick and pushes it away. Then Celtic break upfield and James Forrest surges into the penalty area only to see his shot deflected onto the face of the crossbar.
