So, St Johnstone produce a five-star display to stun league leaders Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

Meanwhile, Inverness CT supporters will have bragging rights in work on Monday morning following the 2-1 win at Ross County.

Partick Thistle ease the pressure with a convincing home win over managerless Dundee United, while Kilmarnock hold Hearts at Tynecastle.

Dundee secure victory at home to Motherwell, despite a late Motherwell comeback.

Thanks for your company this afternoon. We're back tomorrow for Hamilton v Celtic. Enjoy your Saturday night. Cheers.

Partick 3-0 Dundee United

Chris McLaughlin

BBC Sport

Dave Bowman accused the Dundee United players of being 'soft touches' after the defeat by Partick Thistle that leaves the Tannadice club bottom of the table.

"People think we are a soft touch and that second half performance proved that we are - it's just not acceptable," he said.

"Every time there was a 50/50 challenge I knew that Partick would come out on top," he said.

Dave Bowman

The defeat leaves United with five points from 10 league matches.

"People think it's a false position - it's not and the players have to grasp that."

Asked if the managerial situation needed clarified, he said: "I think it does yes. Just for clarity for everybody."

Ross County 1-2 Inverness CT

County boss Jim McIntyre

"Obviously, we had a really poor 10 minutes just before half-time. We switched off for Inverness's first goal and then not defended a corner which is unlike us.

Ross County manager Jim McIntyre

"We just didn't have the final piece of quality we needed on the day. Our delivery and execution just wasn't there until the final minute."

Rangers 3-1 Falkirk

Houston unhappy with referee

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Scotland

"I went into see the referee, he's reported me to the association."

Falkirk boss Peter Houston

Peter Houston is furious with referee John McKendrick after he gave a free-kick to Rangers on the edge of the box, from which James Tavernier scored. Houston says Falkirk player Tom Taiwo won the ball and it should never have been a free-kick.

Definitely one for the Sportscene highlights. Houston concedes he will be in trouble with the SFA for his comments.

Ross County 1-2 Inverness CT

Inverness boss John Hughes

"It was everything we'd expect from a derby match. We knew we'd need to stand up to them for 15/20 minutes and then get on the ball.

"Our first goal was straight off the training ground. And, with the second goal, it's nice to score from a set piece."

Inverness CT boss John Hughes

"At 2-1 we were kind of hanging in their in the last five minutes but we've got that spirit amongst us. I'm absolutely delighted for them - that's what, six or seven unbeaten now.

"With the injuries we've got, I take my hat off to these boys."

Aberdeen 1-5 St Johnstone

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright

"We expected to come up here and put on a performance - and hopefully get a win. To win by that margin, and the quality of the goals, is a perfect day for us.

St Johnstone players celebrate

"Brian Easton's goal settled us with a tremendous finish; it must be up there for goal of the season. And the second goal gave us a good cushion. Aberdeen are a good side and came back into it.

"We were better in the second half when we went back to 4-4-1-1. We didn't allow Aberdeen much time on the ball."

John Barnes

BBC Scotland

"Thistle well and truly in the driving seat now after Mustapha Dumbuya makes it 2-0 against United, although it looked a cross rather than a shot from wide. United have an uphill struggle now."
