McIntyre praise for County comeback

FT: Inverness CT 1-1 Ross County

Ross County manager Jim McIntyre:

"It was the least we deserved. The referee has got to give a penalty for the foul on Alex Schalk. That's disappointing.

"We said to the players at half-time we'd done so much well but we knew Inverness would probably get a rocket and come out all guns blazing. They had a good period in that second half.

"Goals change games. It gave Inverness that lift for 10-15 minutes. We had to weather the storm.

"We've come back into it. Craig (Curran) should score. We put so much into it and the way it's been going recently lately it's easy to feel sorry for yourselves. But we dug in and I felt we finished the game really strongly.

"Alex Schalk what a great finish. Great composure, it's easy to snatch at them. It was fitting that we got that equaliser.

"It's crucial. Every point is a prisoner. Every team from sixth down is in a relegation battle."

Former Hearts midfielder Michael Stewart has his say on the relaying of information from Craig Levein to Ian Cathro.

Really? Is it such a big deal?

Motherwell 'positive' despite loss

FT: Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson:

"There is a lot of positivity still in the dressing room. We were the better team against a team that is pushing into the top four.

"We created numerous opportunities and one penalty that was incredible that it wasn't given, on Chris Cadden. It was a stonewall penalty. There was another debatable on on Scott McDondald, which could have gone either way.

"Their commitment to play for the shirt is not in question but we have to deal with crosses, because if you don't you're going to lose football matches."

'Massive' win for St Johnstone

FT: Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright:

"It's a massive three points for us because it almost guarantees top six. The performance at times could have been better, but defensively we were strong.

"We'll look to hold onto fourth place now.Two months ago you'd probably have said it wouldn't happen but it has because we have little spells when we don't win games but we get over that very quickly and get back to winning games again, which has enabled us to catch Hearts. We're two points ahead, but I'd be a lot of happier if that was after 38 games."

'Feels like a defeat'

FT: Inverness CT 1-1 Ross County

Inverness CT manager Richie Foran:

"Billy Mckay's hit the crossbar. Carl Tremarco had a great chance. We dominated half an hour of the second half.

"When County scored it feels like a defeat but flip that around. We're a point better off than we were before the game.

"It's a very, very good performance but disappointing not to get the three points.

"There's still nine games and a lot of points up for grabs. Results went our way as well. We wanted to win the game and were unfortunate not to.

"The second half gives us huge confidence. If we play like that, we'll win most games."

First Impressions of Pedro Caixinha

@bbcsportscot &

Graeme Wright: Build up for a half decent attempt at next season. Small steps. Still no cash remember. 

Tommy Rae Jr: Great first steps. Let's get some real completion to truly see where we are. 

Joshua Chisolm:  Looked like he's already drilled it into the team to press high up the pitch - something we have always lacked.  

Marc Sala: Too early to say.

What's on the Sunday lunch menu?

Runaway leaders Celtic visit Dundee tomorrow then we have a break for internationals, with Scotland taking on Canada and Slovenia.

Aberdeen's win today means Celtic cannot clinch the title at Dens Park. The champagne will need to stay on ice for now.

Nip and tuck in the trouble zone

That late equaliser for Ross County in the Highland derby keeps them just out of range of bottom club Hamilton, with four points covering the bottom four in the Premiership.

Accies look in trouble after conceding eight goals in their last two outings but the dogfight is likely to go right to the wire.

Hibs stumble against Sons

Do Hibs want to win the Championship?

Neil Lennon's men had the chance to open up a nine-point gap but struggled at home to Dumbarton and were given a helping hand with both of their goals in a 2-2 draw, an own goal and a goalkeeping blunder. Hibs also missed a penalty.

Falkirk and Morton kick off in 10 minutes time and Hibs' slip will have both sides fired up.

You can watch the action from the Falkirk Stadium on BBC Alba and via the BBC Sport website.

FULL-TIME Inverness CT 1-1 Ross County

Caley Thistle nudge off the bottom of the table on goal difference but that late equaliser from Alex Schalk is going to hurt.

FULL-TIME Rangers 4-0 Hamilton Academical

Pedro Caixinha could scarcely have asked for a more satisfactory result in his first match as Rangers manager.

Goals from Emerson Hyndman, Clint Hill, Martyn Waghorn and Lee Wallace secured the Ibrox side all three points.

Hamilton drop to the bottom of the table on goal difference.

Martyn Waghorn celebrates
Waghorn scored his fifth goal in four games against Hamilton this season

Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1-1 Ross County

County are down to 10 men with defender Andrew Davies having been left groggy by a head knock and substitute Ryan Dow threatens to give them a late winner with a clever flick, but it drifts wide of the far post.

FULL-TIME Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

Saints are up to fourth thanks to a Liam Craig double, with the midfielder profiting from some slipshod defending on both occasions.

Motherwell wasted several good chances. Really good chances...

St Johnstone won 2-1 at Fir Park

FULL-TIME Kilmarnock 1-1 Partick Thistle

Killie left it late to level what was an entertaining game, a third draw between the sides this season.

Thistle keeper Tomas Cerny will not want to see Conor Sammon's equaliser again. One for the howler category...


Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

How has that stayed out?! Scott McDonald's cross is flicked on by Ryan Bowman, it looks for all the world to be on its way in, but catches the inside of the post and rolls agonizingly along the goal-line. It's just not happening for the Steelmen.

Sore one for Caley Thistle

Inverness CT 1-1 Ross County

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at the Caledonian Stadium

Alex Schalk has scored a few important goals in his Ross County career but I'd wager Jim McInytre will value this one the most.

They were in deep trouble until that moment and for all the positivity Inverness CT might take form this, it'll feel like a defeat.

GOAL Kilmarnock 1-1 Partick Thistle

Conor Sammon, 87 mins

It's a horror moment for Partick Thistle goalkeeper Tomas Cerny, who lets an innocuous shot from Conor Sammon slip through his legs and into the net.


Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

Louis Moult flashes a header wide from the back post as Motherwell search for an equaliser. The striker really should have done better.

GOAL Inverness CT 1-1 Ross County

Alex Schalk, 86 mins

Caley Thistle were looking comfortable, but Alex Schalk chest the ball down inside the penalty box, makes some room for himself and finds the far corner of the net from 15 yards.

Motherwell push for parity

Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Fir Park

Motherwell have been the more assertive side since the interval, creating a number of chances, but that has not subdued the visitors. Poor defending enabled Liam Craig's second goal, but St Johnstone are a side comfortable under pressure and happy when opponents open up to leave them space to attack. The flow of the game and the scoreline suits them


Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1-0 Ross County

County haven't looked like saving this game - until now, as substitute Jim O'Brien fires a powerful drive from 18 yards, forcing goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams to tip over the crossbar.

GOAL Hibernian 2-2 Dumbarton

Martin Boyle, 83 mins

A horrible error from Alan Martin, who saved a penalty earlier, as he drops the ball on to the head of Martin Boyle and it rolls over the line. Agony for the Sons keeper.


Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

Liam Craig ought to have sealed his hat-trick there - yet again, he's left free to canter into the Motherwell box, but this time he side-foots high and wide of the target.

Liam Craig
Craig should have been celebrating for a third time this afternoon


Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1-0 Ross County

So close to a second for Caley Thistle. First, Greg Tansey's powerful drive is beaten away by goalkeeper Aaron McCarey.

When the ball is played back across the face of goal, Billy Mckay slides in under pressure, but the striker's toe poke smacks the underside of the crossbar and bounces clear.

GOAL Rangers 4-0 Hamilton Academical

Lee Wallace, 74 mins

Martyn Waghorn's back-heel sets up Lee Wallace to score Rangers' fourth of the afternoon.

That's 14 goals conceded in three games for Accies, who are heading for the bottom of the table.

GOAL Kilmarnock 0-1 Partick Thistle

Chris Erskine, 74 mins

Chris Erskine turns and a rifles a low shot into the bottom corner, and finally the deadlock is broken at Rugby Park.

This could be a huge result in terms of the Jags sealing a place in the top six.

So tight at the bottom

With 20 minutes or so to go, a mere three points cover the bottom four sides in the Premiership.


Kilmarnock 0-0 Partick Thistle

For the second time this afternoon Partick Thistle are denied by the woodwork. This time Adam Barton cracks a shot off the inside of the post.


Hibernian 1-2 Dumbarton

Alan Martin makes a tremendous save to keep out a James Keatings spot-kick.

It's just not happening for the Championship leaders...

GOAL Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

Liam Craig 66 mins

It's more kamikaze defending from Motherwell, as they fail to deal with Steven Maclean's cross, and Liam Craig pounces again at the back post, slamming the ball powerfully beyond Craig Samson. It's the midfielder's second of the game and, against the run of play, Saints have regained the lead.


Motherwell 1-1 St Johnstone

Elliot Frear's cross is missed by two Saints defenders, and Louis Moult's low volley rolls just wide of Alan Mannus' left upright. Motherwell are very much on top now.


Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1-0 Ross County

County should be level when Jason Naismith picks out Craig Curran at the back post with a superbly chipped cross, but the striker heads wide from only four yards out.

Kilmarnock 0-0 Partick Thistle

This game has completely turned around from the first half. Now it's Partick Thistle enjoying most of the possession and the bulk of the chances. However, like Kilmarnock in the first 45 minutes, they can't make their pressure count with a goal.If one does come you feel it will be from Chris Erskine, who again flashes a shot wide of the post and is looking the most dangerous player on the park.

GOAL Hibernian 1-2 Dumbarton

Robert Thomson, 62 mins

Just when we thought Hibs were on track, Robert Thomson thumps in an absolute screamer.


Motherwell 1-1 St Johnstone

The towering Zak Jules, up from the back, can't quite force home a knockdown from a Motherwell corner.

GOAL Hibernian 1-1 Dumbarton

Daniel Harvie own goal, 57 mins

More action from the second tier as a John McGinn volley is deflected in by defender Dan Harvie to bring the leaders level.

GOAL Rangers 3-0 Hamilton Academical

Martyn Waghorn, penalty

Martyn Waghorn won the spot-kick and he converts to maintain his record of scoring in each of Rangers' meetings with Hamilton this season. That's five in four games against Accies for the forward.

Martyn Waghorn scores a penalty


Rangers 2-0 Hamilton Academical

Rangers have a spot-kick at Ibrox after Martyn Waghorn is fouled by Massimo Donati.
