'Today was about getting the job done' - McInnes

Aberdeen 1-0 Ross County

"Last time out here we scored seven [against Motherwell], but it wasn't that type of game today. County had a very experienced team and went with a back five, but they still had enough in attack to cause us problems. 

"The way the first half panned out there was too much to-and-fro, it was a bit like basketball. In the second half I thought we had a bit more control.

"Today was just about getting the job done." 

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes

'We stuck to our task' - Canning

Celtic 2-0 Hamilton

"It was a great strike [by Dembele], and it's the real moment of quality in the first half. We stuck to our task, and we did well, but it takes that moment of quality from them to open the scoring. At that point the plan was working to frustrate Celtic, and when we had counter-attack opportunities our quality maybe wasn't as good as it could have been to give ourselves the best chance of taking something from the game. 

"I was really pleased with the players' attitude, in the first and the second halves, they worked hard."

Hamilton Accies boss Martin Canning

Celtic display 'very pleasing' - Rodgers

Celtic 2-0 Hamilton

"When teams sit in that deep, it's always difficult. For spells in the first half we closed up our own space a little too much, that was just our positioning really. We still have moments where we could find the final pass a little bit better, but right on half-time an absolutely brilliant goal by Moussa. The boy oozes quality, he has wonderful finishing, and I think that was his first one from outside the box, so he's continually working on that. 

"We adjusted positionally at half-time and in the second half we were very good in our control of the game. We knew they were working very hard, so we had to move them about, and the spaces were much better for us. We got the second goal and if one or two final passes might have been a little better we would have been in again. 

"Defensively we were outstanding, how quickly we won the ball back. Overall, very pleasing performance."

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers

'We were too easy to score against' - McGhee

Motherwell 1-5 Dundee

"The first half, defensively, was poor," said Motherwell boss Mark McGhee following the heavy defeat by Dundee.

"We've lost Tait, we've lost McManus and now Hamill as well. So, three changes to the back four that's been playing most of the season.  

"In the first half they [his defence] didn't cope with anything at all into the box. We were too easy to score against.

"We didn't look like a back four until we changed it around."

          Motherwell boss Mark McGhee (centre) said his side didn't cope defensively
"They didn't cope with anything at all into the box"

"The players who played at the moment are the ones we have defensively. With injuries to the boys who are injured, then there's nothing I can do about that. All we can do is look at how we lost the goals and, individually, who was losing headers. 

"All we can do is look at how we lost the goals and, individually, who was losing headers. Next week it will be the same players, whether it's in the same order..." 

Asked whether the boos from the Motherwell supporters were acceptable, McGhee said: "yes, absolutely. Hugely understandable but people have to also look at it realistically and know that we're undermined defensively with the loss of the players we've lost."       

Motherwell display unacceptable - Miller

Motherwell 1-5 Dundee

It [Mark McGhee's position] is a horrible situation to find yourself in. You can go to Celtic Park, a 2-0 defeat, and you can take that. But this was an important game and even the Aberdeen game, when you're losing seven goals, is embarrassing in my book. You can't accept a performance and a defeat by that margin [losing 5-1 to Dundee]. A home result like that is unacceptable to the fans.

Hibs still on cloud nine

Hibernian v Dunfermline (17:15)

BBC Sport Scotland at Easter Road

Not quite the excitement that surrounded the Edinburgh derby on Wednesday but for Hibernian this Championship match against Dunfermline Athletic is even more important than a win over their city rivals as they chase promotion to the Premiership.

Marvin Bartley drops to the bench while Chris Humphrey is out through injury, Fraser Fyvie and Andrew Shinnie the replacements.

Dunfermline have just one defeat in their last 14 games but are still only four points above the relegation play-off spot. Allan Johnston is without the injured Lewis Martin with Andy Geggan back in the starting XI.

Celtic march on

Celtic 2-0 Hamilton

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

Celtic just keep motoring towards the Premiership title. For all Hamilton's hard work, they could not contain Moussa Dembele, who scored his 28th and 29th goals of the season. Brendan Rodgers took to the field after the final whistle to acclaim the Celtic support, and the gesture was returned. This was another fine day at the office for the reigning champions.

'Massive work for Cathro'

Partick Thistle 2-0 Hearts

Former Hibernian striker Tam McManus on BBC Radio Scotland:

"Hearts haven't really tested Tomas Cerny in the Thistle goal at all. When Goncalves got sent off and the second goal went in, that was game over.

"There's massive work for Ian Cathro to do - I don't see a pattern of play or formation at all."

Adam Rooney's close-range goal is the difference between the two sides at Pittodrie.

Hearts lacking heart

Partick 2-0 Hearts

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Sport Scotland at Firhill

Hearts are flailing now. That goal from Liam Lindsay was more than deserved as Partick Thistle underlined their dominance. The heart has gone from the away side this afternoon, to cap a miserable week. Head Coach Ian Cathro was looking for a response from his side after their derby defeat. It hasn't arrived today...

Dembele ovation

Celtic 2-0 Hamilton

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

The Hamilton players would have been relieved to see Moussa Demeble's number raised on the touchline for his substitution, but it was Leigh Griffiths coming on to replace him. Dembele received an ovation from the home fans, after his two goals and generally sharp play raised the level of Celtic's performance. They continue to march impressively towards the Premiership title.

Dons outfoxed

Aberdeen 1-0 Ross County

Scott Fox is keeping County in it as he gets down smartly to claw away a back post header from Niall McGinn.

GOAL Partick Thistle 2-0 Hearts

Liam Lindsay

Centre-back Liam Lindsay collects a ball into the box, swivels and rasps a brilliant drive beyond Jack Hamilton. It's a seventh goal of the season for the big defender, and it should be sufficient to subdue the 10-man Jambos. 


Celtic 2-0 Hamilton Academical

Scott Sinclair has the ball in the net from a Gary Mackay-Steven pass, but it is ruled out for offside.


Aberdeen 1-0 Ross County

Adam Rooney didn't know too much about his goal but it's given him a lift as the striker fires in his second acrobatic overhead kick of the day. This one needs a scrambling save from Scott Fox.

GOAL St Johnstone 0-2 Kilmarnock

Conor Sammon

Kilmarnock double their lead courtesy of the leaping Conor Sammon. The Sammon household will be a happy one tonight after the striker revealed he had to start scoring to avoid the wrath of his wife, who is a season-ticket holder whom he met during his first spell with the Ayrshire club a decade ago...


Motherwell 1-5 Dundee

Motherwell continue to look the more likely in the second half and the Dundee defence is beginning to creak. Scott McDonald plays in Craig Clay and he takes advantage of sloppy defending to get a shot in but it is well blocked.

GOAL Aberdeen 1-0 Ross County

Adam Rooney

Football can be cruel. Andrew Davies has been strong at the heart of the County defence but he gets himself in a terrible tangle trying to deal with a low Kenny McLean cross, diverting the ball towards his own net and it clips the shins of poacher Adam Rooney on its way in.


Motherwell 1-5 Dundee

Chris Cadden threatens for Well, breaking down the right and rifling an effort goalwards, but Scott Bain makes a comfortable stop.

GOAL Celtic 2-0 Hamilton

Moussa Dembele

Moussa Dembele scores his second goal of the day and it is more simple one this time, the striker firing home from the penalty spot.  


Partick Thistle 1-0 Hearts

Isma Goncalves' temper has been fraying and the striker is shown a second yellow card for a poor challenge on Christie Elliott. The striker troops off down the tunnel - and Hearts' hopes of salvaging something from this game may be disappearing with him.

Hearts' defensive kerfuffle

Partick Thistle 1-0 Hearts

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Sport Scotland at Firhill

This has been so poor from Hearts. Lennard Sowah has looked like a fish out of water at centre-back, in place of the injured Aaron Hughes.

The question has to be - why is Sowah playing there? He's a natural left-back. Would it not have made more sense to play Krystian Nowak in central defence?

Sowah just looks so uncomfortable in that position, and the Partick Thistle players - and the crowd - sense it.


Celtic 1-0 Hamilton

A second for Celtic? No; Kieran Tierney's cutback finds Moussa Dembele but the Frenchman can't find the net as his rasping drive is blocked.


Aberdeen 0-0 Ross County

The visitors continue to look lively as Andrew Davies is once again given the freedom of the Aberdeen box at a corner kick. This time, Joe Lewis is able to push the ball clear from the defender's header.

Aberdeen 0-0 Ross County

The first 10 minutes was okay but since then Aberdeen haven't produced anything like the football they're capable of
