I'm going to call it a day now. Many thanks for company today. Congratulations to Motherwell, Hamilton, Inverness Caley Thistle and St Johnstone on their wins.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and join us for coverage of Scotland's second match in the Rugby World Cup tomorrow.

Inverness CT boss John Hughes on BBC Radio Scotland

"It was a magnificent display from Ryan Christie marred by that late red card. I don't think that second yellow was really deserved. We all know he's going to Celtic and maybe he wanted to do them a favour today but we're not complaining."

Inverness CT are now five games unbeaten and starting to get their act together after a sluggish start...

The Dons gaffer does not sound best pleased but once he's calmed down he might take a degree of comfort from Celtic's slip at home. Aberdeen now lead the way by four points.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland

"Although we played with bags of spirit and enthusiasm in the second half and could have got the equaliser it still doesn't mask the fact that the first half wasn't good enough. I thought 2-1 flattered us in that period. That 45 minutes might have been the worst performance in my time here."

Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson on BBC Radio Scotland

"We're pleased with the point but I'd like to build to a team that comes here and wins but that takes time. Last year we came here and lost 4-0, so we're improving."

Celtic battered Hearts in the first half but ran out of ideas in the second half...

Kilmarnock are the team being leapfrogged by Motherwell and home fans will be very disappointed, having seen their team go in 1-0 up at half-time. Hamilton came roaring back to bang in three games after the break and now sit level on points with third-placed Hearts.

Motherwell jump up a place in the table as caretaker boss Stephen Craigan opens with a 2-1 win at home to Partick Thistle. That will do his chances of landing the job no harm but things are already looking grim for the Jags, who are stuck at the bottom with a mere three points from nine games.

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara has been on the receiving end of some flak this season and that is only going to amplify after today's defeat at McDiarmid Park. When Billy McKay knocked in the opener from the spot after a red card for Saints keeper Alan Mannus, it looked like things were going the visitors' way. However, St Johnstone had other ideas...

My head is spinning after that flurry of late red cards! I think I got them all... Those three dismissals took the total to five for the afternoon.

Aberdeen's winning run in the Premiership is over but Celtic fail to take advantage as they are held at home. St Johnstone come from behind with 10 men and poor old Partick Thistle are still searching for a win.

RED CARD

Kilmarnock 1-2 Hamilton

And another one! Lee Ashcroft is off for Killie! The home defender resorted to skulduggery to stop Dougie Imrie from racing in on goal.

RED CARD

Loud boos ring out at Dens Park as Greg Stewart is bundled over by Scott Boyd but play is waved on...

GOAL

St Johnstone 2-1 Dundee Utd (Lappin)

A remarkable fight back from 10-man Saints as Simon Lappin comes off the bench to send a deft lob sailing over a befuddled Luis Zwick. He's only been on the park for a few minutes...

Celtic 0-0 Hearts

Nir Bitton sends a header wide as Celtic begin to apply some late pressure as they desperately look for the breakthrough against Hearts.

Celtic 0-0 Hearts

The hosts continue to dominate the ball but they are finding openings harder to come by now as Hearts stand firm.

St Johnstone 1-1 Dundee Utd

It's the depleted home side who are looking more likely to get a second goal. Graham Cummins fire in a low drive which is deflected just over for a corner.

GOAL

Motherwell 2-0 Partick Thistle (McDonald)

A bit of daylight for the Steelmen now as Scott McDonald has a header well saved by Tomas Cerny but is well placed to volley the rebound into the net.

Inverness CT 2-1 Aberdeen

A rather flat second half after three goals in the opening 45 minutes. The Dons are just edging it now and Peter Pawlett tests Owain Fon Williams with a free-kick.

GOAL

St Johnstone 1-1 Dundee Utd (Cummins)

Ten-man Saints are level as Graham Cummins thumps a powerful header home from a Liam Craig corner.

Just prior to the equaliser, United spurned a golden chance for a second, with Mario Bilate is clear of his marker on the edge of the six-yard box but failing to test the goalkeeper with a failed attempt at a volley.

GOAL

Kilmarnock 1-2 Hamilton (Crawford)

Ali Crawford continues his impressive start to the season as he slots Accies ahead at Rugby Park from Greg Docherty's cross.

GOAL

Dundee 2-3 Ross County

Rory Loy is cool as a frozen cucumber as he sends Scott Fox the wrong way from the spot and Dundee are right back in it.

PENALTY

Dundee 1-3 Ross County

The Staggies are down to 10 men as captain Andrew Davies is shown his second yellow card of the afternoon for bundling over Rory Loy and the downed midfielder will take the spot-kick.

Striker Brian Graham is immediately sacrificed by County boss Jim McIntyre to allow Scott Boyd to come on at the heart of the defence.

St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd

Two free-kicks in quick succession for St Johnstone. Liam Craig's effort is pushed away from the bottom corner by Luis Zwick, before another floats to the back post but is just a little too high for the strikers. The home side, despite their one-man disadvantage, have started the second half in lively fashion.

Here's a look at the only goal so far at Fir Park - Frederic Frans looks on as the ball deflects off him and flies into the Partick Thistle net...

Dundee 1-3 Ross County

Ross County need to make a change as Martin Woods was injured in the first half and has been replaced by Stewart Murdoch. That game is just getting back under way.
