Goodbye after a long day!

Thanks for your company today on another strange day in Scottish football as Celtic edge closer to another league title yet find themselves barracked by their fans. Dundee United get a similar reaction at the other end of the table.

Next up, Hibernian host Dumbarton on Tuesday as they try to rekindle their Championship promotion campaign while champions Rangers face Livingston. 

Celtic view

You can now read Tom English's view of another poor performance by Premiership leaders Celtic - a 1-1 draw at home to Ross County.

Dundee United manager Mixu Paatelainen

"Kilmarnock losing just before us obviously meant more to Hamilton than our boys.

"This was a chance for us to put pressure on Kilmarnock, but we were nowhere near the intensity and desire to get on the ball and I am really disappointed with that.

"It is not good enough. It is a long season and you get what you deserve.

"It is very hard to win consistently when you lose your individual battles, but if that aggression does not come naturally, it is very difficult to change."

Celtic manager Ronny Deila

On BBC Radio Scotland

"Of course it is tough for the players to get that reaction from the fans, but we did not perform well today.

"The second half. there was not enough heart and energy in our play.

"But, with Aberdeen having lost on Friday, we are now nine points ahead and we have only lost three games in 34.

"We need to stay together, get over the line and we are only three points away from a fifth championship in a row. 

"I talk to Peter Lawwell all the time and it is not the first time he has been in the dressing-room."

Hamilton Accies player-manager Martin Canning

On BBC Radio Scotland

"That was us back to our best in terms of pressing the game and performance.

"Under the pressure we were under, it was great.

"Individually, they all performed well.

"Every game has been big recently and next week would be huge if we can make sure we stay in the Premiership."

Celtic mystery

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has apparently gone into the dressing-room after the game. Rather unusual - and intriguing.

Where's Ronny?

We are still waiting for the managers, including Celtic manager Ronny Deila and Dundee United's Mixu Paatelainen, to emerge for their post-match interviews.

Fuming Killie boss

Kilmarnock manager Lee Clark has been left angry at Conrad Balatoni's error, which helped Caley Thistle back into the game at Caledonian Stadium.

Match reports

You can now read Martin Dowden's account of Inverness Caledonian Thistle's 3-1 win over Kilmarnock and Brian McLauchlin's report from Tannadice, where Dundee United slumped to a 3-1 defeat by Hamilton Accies.

Tom English

BBC Sport Scotland at Celtic Park

This club need to wake up. If Aberdeen improve, if Hearts improve, if Rangers spend a bit of money, they can light a fire under Celtic

Tannadice trauma

Angry Dundee United fans are gathering outside Tannadice demanding to talk to chairman Stephen Thompson.

If that's the best that Celtic can do after last Sunday's events then they're in even more trouble than I thought.

Dens of iniquity

United could now be relegated a week on Monday when they face city neighbours Dundee. 

FT: Dundee United 1-3 Hamilton Accies

There were emotional scenes at Tannadice as tearful United midfielder John Rankin embraced some fans in the stand.

It seems that, although they can still avoid relegation arithmetically, United are now resigned to their relegation fate.

FULL-TIME

Dundee United 1-3 Hamilton Accies

Their superb victory means Accies cannot be caught by their hosts and are safe from automatic relegation.

They are now also seven points clear of second-bottom Kilmarnock, who lost earlier away to Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

For United, their season is petering out in dismal fashion and they remain eight points behind Killie and are almost certainly going to be playing in the Championship next season. 

FULL-TIME

Celtic 1-1 Ross County

County, who knocked them out of the Scottish League Cup, do their best again to spoil Celtic's season.

The point moves Celtic nine points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Premiership and, mathematically, they only need four more points to retain the title, but the boos from the fans at the end tell their own story and that's why manager Ronny Deila will be leaving the club this summer.

Celtic 1-1 Ross County

I am shocked today. I thought there would be a reaction for the manager, for the fans and after last week's result. That is normally the Celtic way, but this has been awful

GOAL

Dundee United 1-3 Hamilton Accies (Simon Murray)

Dundee United to their credit are fighting to the end, and Simon Murray gets some scant reward for their efforts with a late consolation, lobbing the ball over goalkeeper Michael McGovern.  

Celtic 1-1 Ross County

Celtic continue to stumble ineligantly towards retention of the Scottish Premiership title. It looks like there is no great hunger from the players to send manager Ronny Deila off with a flourish.

Roger Mitchell: "@BBCSportScot one could hazard an opinion that the best two teams in Scotland will contest the Scottish Cup final."

Celtic 1-1 Ross County

County pass up another chance, with Paul Quinn kicking fresh air at the back post as he attempted to sweep the ball home.

CLOSE!

Celtic 1-1 Ross County

Alex Schalk goes close to putting County into the lead with a thundering drive from 25 yards that beats goalkeeper Craig Gordon but also flies wide of the post.

Celtic 1-1 Ross County

Colin Kazim-Richards does well to make space for himself inside the County penalty box with some nimble footwork, but the Turkey forward undoes his good work by blasting wide from 12 yards.

GOAL

Dundee United 0-3 Hamilton Accies (Carlton Morris)

Ali Crawford's shot is palmed away by Eiji Kawashima, but Carlton Morris volleys in to make it 3-0 to the Accies.

CLOSE!

Celtic 1-1 Ross County

Jonathan Franks beats Kieran Tierney wide on the County right and his cross finds the head of David Goodwillie, whose effort flashes across the face of the Celtic goal.

Close!

Dundee United 0-2 Hamilton Academical

It should really be 3-0 to Hamilton. The ball bounces kindly for Dougie Imrie, who has a free shot at goal, but his left-foot attempt is sliced wide. A small crumb of comfort for the home side.

GOAL

Celtic 1-1 Ross County (Stewart Murdoch)

County have been threatening an equaliser and it comes with a blistering strike from Stewart Murdoch from 30 yards. 

Craig Gordon complains that a County player was in an offside position and blocking his view, but the Celtic goalkeeper was rooted to the spot and well beaten.

Celtic 1-0 Ross County

It is Patrick Roberts turn to have a sight of the County goal, but the winger's low drive is too close to goalkeeper Scott Fox.

GREAT SAVE!

Celtic 1-0 Ross County

County goalkeeper Scott Fox gets down well to hold a powerful low drive from Leigh Griffiths.

Celtic 1-0 Ross County

County go close to an equaliser on the break. Jackson Irvine's fine ball out of defence finds Alex Shalk one-on-one with Charlie Mulgrew, but the striker is only able to curl his drive a yard over the crossbar.

GREAT SAVE!

Dundee United 0-2 Hamilton Accies

Accies goalkeeper Michael McGovern is preventing a comeback from United. First, he produces a fine save from Scott Fraser's powerful drive and, from the midfielder's corner, Edward Ofer's header crashes off the bar before striking the goalkeeper and over the bar.

GOAL

Dundee United 0-2 Hamilton Accies (Carlton Morris)

It looks like the game is beyond United now. Dougie Imrie's cross is headed against the bar by Greg Docherty, but striker Carlton Morris has the easy task of nodding the loose ball over the line.

GREAT SAVE!

Dundee United 0-1 Hamilton Accies

At last United show some life and Billy Mckay goes close to an equaliser.

First, he has a header off the post and then, from the rebound, his shot it stopped superbly by Northern Ireland team-mate Michael McGovern in the Accies goal.

CLOSE!

Celtic 1-0 Ross County

Michael Gardyne misses a great chance to equalise, the forward blasting over from five yards out at the back post.

KICK-OFF

Celtic 1-0 Ross County

Ross County get the second half underway at a subdued Celtic Park despite the home side being ahead.

HT: Dundee United 0-1 Hamilton Accies

Dundee United have created zilch. Unless Mixu Paatelainen can do something amazing at half-time, they are doomed. It is quite an incredible, abysmal performance. It seems they have accepted their fate

Willie MillerBBC Radio Scotland pundit at Tannadice

County changes

Celtic 1-0 Ross County

Ross County manager Jim McIntyre has made five changes today.

With captain Andrew Davies and key midfielder Martin Woods suspended, Chris McLaughlin, Ricky Foster and Brian Graham also drop out.

The influential Jackson Irvine has returned from injury to start in midfield, while Chris Robertson, Jonathan Franks, Ian McShane and Liam Boyce also come into the starting line-up.

Brian McLauchlin

If Dundee United players think their efforts in the first half against Hamilton are good enough to help them retain their top-flight status then the boos ringing round the stadium as the whistle blew will tell them otherwise
