Friday fever

The Premiership takes precedence again on Friday, with Aberdeen due to travel to Edinburgh to face Hearts. Join us then unless Robbie Neilson's side are still struck by the illness bug that forced tonight's game against Inverness Caledonian Thistle to be postponed!

Rangers promoted

So, the headlines tonight: Rangers will be playing in top flight next season, ending their four years in the lower leagues, while city rivals Celtic edge five points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Premiership. Partick Thistle move up to seventh, equal with sixth-placed Dundee, whose city rivals, United, are left five points adrift at the bottom.

Stubbs' consolation

Hibs manager Alan Stubbs finally had to concede the Championship title to Rangers, but at least he had the pleasure of saying of Martin Boyle's winner against Livingston that "you won't see a better goal in world football".

Congratulations to Rangers. They have been the most consistent team over the season. The first thing I will do in the car is to phone Mark Warburton and tell him

Celtic manager Ronny Deila

On BBC Radio Scotland

"We had a clean sheet, which is a positive thing.

"Offensively, we should have created more chances and should have finished better those we had.

"Everything is in our hands and we have to get ready for Saturday.

"We will see how Erik Sviatchenko is after a scan tomorrow."

Dundee United manager Mixu Paatelainen

On BBC Radio Scotland

"We had enough chances to score several games.

"First half, we should have been out of sight and we simply need to put those chances away.

"We lost a grip of the game by being too hasty and the goal we conceded was so annoying - players jogging instead of picking up players.

"It was an opportunity lost, but although we lost, we still have a chance to avoid relegation."

Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald

On BBC Radio Scotland

"Dundee United were by far the better side in the first half and we struggled to cope with their energy and they won every second ball.

"It was a totally different second half. We told them it wasn't good enough.

"We wanted to go to Dingwall to give us a chance to get into that top six and we can't wait."

Renewed Hibs hopes

While Rangers have secured the title and the automatic promotion place, there was consolation for Hibs as they move to within three points of second-top Falkirk with two games in hand in the race for play-off places.

Thistle sting rivals

It was a night of double joy over the City of Discovery for Partick Thistle as their win over Dundee United and Dundee's draw with Celtic means they have leapfrogged Ross County and joined the Dens Park side on 41 points in the race for a top-six place ahead of the split that takes place after this weekend's games.

Joyous Rangers

Rangers players are celebrating with the club's fans in the packed stands as the joy spills over after a four-year journey to Scotland's top flight.

GREAT SAVE!

Rangers 1-0 Dumbarton

Michael O'Halloran should make the game safe for Rangers as he breaks behind the Dumbarton defence, but advancing goalkeeper Jamie Ewings manages to turn the ball wide with his foot.

Rangers 1-0 Dumbarton

There are no signs that Dumbarton are going to spoil Rangers' title party. The part-timers have been pinned back in their own half for most of the match and, with some of their players having been working at their other jobs earlier today, they are bound to tire as the game nears the final whistle.

Hibs have turned the game around, with Martin Boyle sending a 30-yards screamer into the top corner.

Dumbarton are beginning to string a few passes together and veteran striker Christian Nade volleys from all of 30 yards and forces Wes Foderinham into a save at the back post. 

CLOSE!

Twice Celtic are denied by goal-line clearances. Mikael Lustig and Charlie Mulgrew from successive corners are denied by last-ditch Dundee interventions.

CLOSE!

Partick Thistle 0-0 Dundee United

Good play from Partick Thistle. Callum Booth volleys narrowly over the bar after Mustapha Dumbuya's cross is only partially cleared.

Ouch!

Dundee 0-0 Celtic

Erik Sviatchenko goes down clutching his hamstring after a meaty collision. He's treated and ultimately traipses off to be replaced by Charlie Mulgrew.

Hibernian 0-1 Livingston

Livingston look quite happy to allow Hibs to have the ball as the home side struggle to make any impression on the visitors defence. Charlie Telfer making a real impact in the Livi midfield

HITS THE WOODWORK

Dundee 0-0 Celtic

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon flies low to his left to block the volley of Paul McGowan. Rory Loy gets to the rebound but can only strike the post from five yards out. 

CLOSE!

Dundee 0-0 Celtic

A stunning solo run from Patrick Roberts as the on-loan Manchester City winger slaloms into the Dundee box, beating no fewer than five opponents on his way. 

He is eventually dispossessed by Paul McGowan and, from the resultant corner, Leigh Griffiths is thwarted again.

CLOSE!

Dundee 0-0 Celtic

Leigh Griffiths' free-kick from the left angle of the area bounces awkwardly right in front of Scott Bain. The goalkeeper beats it away.

Hibernian 0-1 Livingston

Hibs' start is electric and Anthony Stokes' volley is cleared off the line by Ben Gordon.

KICK-OFF

Dundee 0-0 Celtic

Young Craig Wighton replaces Kane Hemmings up front for Dundee. Must be an injury for the in-form striker.

KICK-OFF

Rangers 0-0 Dumbarton

It is a fairly subdued Ibrox that welcomes the second half ahead of the other games, despite Rangers' stadium being near to capacity.

The White stuff

Hibernian 0-1 Livingston

Jordan White's goal for Livingston at Easter Road separates the teams - and is the only goal of the night so far.
