Goodbye

So, league leaders Celtic are booed off as they draw at home to Dundee, enabling Aberdeen, with victory at Dundee United, to narrow the gap to four points.

Meanwhile, Partick Thistle get back to winning ways with a convincing display at St Johnstone.

Highlights of the game at McDiarmid Park will be available on our site after midnight; those from tonight's other two Premiership matches will follow tomorrow.

Thanks for your company.  

Dundee United boss Mixu Paatelainen

United 0-1 Aberdeen

"I thought our performance merited a draw. We didn't start as well as Aberdeen and they were really quick off the mark. 

"In the second half we really had chances to score and we should've scored. But the whole team worked very hard

Celtic boss Ronny Deila

Celtic 0-0 Dundee

"I am very, very disappointed. It was a poor performance from start to finish, as a team, not individuals, all over the pitch. We looked slow and always a metre too late, which is disappointing. It is about confidence and getting energy back. Today it seemed like they had flat batteries.

"It's my responsibilty; we need to lift everybody as a group. The performance today wasn't good enough and everyone in the dressing room understands that.

"We need to get back on track again on Sunday [against Morton in the Scottish Cup]. We need to perform as well as we can."

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes

Dundee United 0-1 Aberdeen

"When I see my players with the way they've played in the last couple of games, there was a lot of frustration from Saturday [the draw with St Johnstone] and shipped two points from a winning position.

"We were all angry but we came out and ensured we got reward for our dominance tonight. I'm always encouraged by my team and I'm always confident that, when a game comes round, we can win it.

"For us to force the issue, with 10 games to go, we'll need to ensure there's no sloppiness and there's no room for error and keep winning games. I firmly believe we can keep winning..."

Dundee slated before match for fielding second string team. Celtic lack confidence over the 90 minutes. Dons dream again #bbcsportscot

Partick Thistle boss Alan Archibald

St Johnstone 1-2 Partick Thistle

"We asked the lads for a reaction and a response [to Saturday's defeat by Motherwell] and we got that. "the pitch was hard to play on but I thought our lads knocked it about really well."

Anyone remember John Collins' comments at the start of the season about how teams arn't sharp enough to cause Celtic problems? #bbcsportscot

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright

Saints 1-2 Partick Thistle

"We lost a game we went into with a lot of confidence. We were alright in the first five minutes but if you don't make tackles and allow shots from the edge of the box, then you find yourselves 2-0 down. 

"Two lapses of concentration and we end up 2-0 down with an uphill task. We didn't work the keeper [enough] and were guilty of wrong decisions in the final third.

"These [St Johnstone] fans have had four unbelievable years and there's a wee blip at the minute. They do show their frustration but, if you go and win on Wednesday night then they'll be back cheering you on again.

"But I'll defend the players: they're still in the top six."

Tonight's results are exactly why I wrote & spoke, this week, about how this title race is most definitely not over.

St Johnstone 1-2 Partick Thistle

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at McDiarmid Park

"A terrific win for Alan Archibald's team built on a first half of genuine quality and a second period in which they held off St Johnstone fairly comfortably overall. The home fans were not at all happy with this and their form is concerning as they drop down the table."

Fantastic result for thistle away to saints despite some dodgy refereeing decisions and unsporting play by Tommy wrights team #bbcsportscot

Fantastic night for the dons!! 4 points behind, let's keep chasing them #COYR #bbcsportscot

Dundee boss Paul Hartley

Celtic 0-0 Dundee

"I'm thrilled. I thought the gameplan worked well; we came here and changed our system - going to a back three, two wing-backs, three in midfield and two up. We didn't sit off Celtic and we caused them problems, especially the last 25 minutes.  

"I felt we were really comfortable. They're a magnificent bunch of players to work with. It was a magnificent team performance. We out-thought Celtic tonight...

Don't understand how Celtic have slipped so far, we should be comfortably beating Scottish opposition nowadays #bbcsportscot

GREAT SAVE! Dundee United 0-1 Aberdeen

United are denied a late, late equaliser as Coll Donaldson fires a shot at goal but keeper Scott Brown is equal to it. Could that save secure maximum points for the title-chasing Dons? 

CLOSE! Celtic 0-0 Dundee

What. A. Chance. Greg Stewart's corner kick finds Kostadin Gadzhalov in acres of space but the Bulgarian heads his effort over the bar!

Will Dundee be left to rue that sitter?

Celtic 0-0 Dundee

Celtic have a free-kick in a promising position but Leigh Griffiths sees his effort swallowed up by the Dundee wall. The hosts are chasing the opener at Celtic Park but Dundee are repelling everything thrown at them.

Looks like best Celtic can hope for is a goal for Dundee Utd! #bbcsportscot

GREAT SAVE!

Celtic 0-0 Dundee

Patrick Roberts tees up Charlie Mulgrew and the Celtic defender thinks he's scored but is denied by the Ninja-like reflexes of Dundee keeper Scott Bain who soars through the Glasgow night sky to tip the ball away.

Dundee United 0-1 Aberdeen

Brian McLauchlin

BBC Sport Scotland at Tannadice

"Great game at Tannadice with play swinging from one end to the other. The introduction of Henri Anier has made a huge difference to the home side as they strive for an equaliser but that said Simon Church and Niall McGinn look very dangerous as the Dons look for a second goal to put this game to bed."

St Johnstone 1-2 Partick

"Kane's goal was all about the delivery from Darnell Fisher. Brilliant it was. St Johnstone still seem to be lacking urgency, something to put more pressure on this Partick Thistle defence."

Celtic 0-0 Dundee

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

"Dundee are growing in assurance, while Celtic are accumulating only frustration. It will irk Ronny Deila that his team seem second best to so many loose balls and his defenders will also be wary now that Kane Hemmings, who has scored 16 goals in his last 17 games, has just come off the bench. All to play for..."

CLOSE! Celtic 0-0 Dundee

Paul McGowan whistles an effort over the bar from an acute angle as Dundee, emboldened by the scoreline and Celtic's inability to find the net, come roaring forward in search of the opener.

Kane As Mustard

St Johnstone 1-2 Partick Thistle

Saints are back in it as Chris Kane stretches out his boot at the back post to touch the ball over the line. Tommy Wright's troops haven't raised the white flag just yet. Game on!  

GOAL St Johnstone 1-2 Partick Thistle (Kane)

CLOSE! Dundee United 0-1 Aberdeen

Barry Robson's corner is flicked on and Kenny McLean flashes his effort wide with the goal gaping! That could and perhaps should've been a second Dons goal at Tannadice with the United defence all-at-sea. 

GREAT SAVE!

Celtic 0-0 Dundee

The visitors press for the opener at Celtic Park and Craig Wighton sees his shot on the turn saved by Craig Gordon following good work by Paul McGowan.

Dundee United 0-1 Aberdeen

Dundee United are up for it in the second half but have lacked that bit of quality...
