Ross County v Celtic

Attention turns to newly crowned Scottish champions Celtic's visit to Dingwall tomorrow.

There is a 12:30 kick-off in the Highlands, where the result will be more important to home side Ross County now that the Glasgow side have already secured a sixth straight title.

County go into the game in eighth place, but they are now equal on points with Hamilton and Motherwell and only two above second-bottom as the battle to avoid a relegation play-off place looks likely to go to the wire as we enter the last five games.

Join us for live coverage tomorrow.

Hartley admits 'body blow'

FT: Dundee 0-2 Hamilton Academical

A sombre sounding Dundee manager Paul Hartley admitted to BBC Radio Scotland that his side are deep in trouble near the foot of the Premiership after their home defeat by Hamilton.

"I am disappointed in certain aspects of our play and the result is a body blow for us," he said. 

"We were not clinical enough and that sums up our performances. 

"We have not been playing well and have to dig in. 

 "After seven defeats, its not nice and is a challenge and we have to fight our way out of it."

Nerves play part in League Two

Nobody seems to want to win League Two!

Leaders Forfar and Arbroath both slipped up again, with the Loons beaten 1-0 away to Montrose and the Red Lichties, a point behind, beaten by the same scoreline at home to Edinburgh City.

Annan Athletic moved into third thanks to a 2-1 win over Berwick Rangers.

That was after Elgin, who were third, squandered a two-goal lead over relegation-threatened Clyde only for former Scotland striker David Goodwillie to strike a hat-trick in 12 second-half minutes.

Just as well for the Bully Wee as bottom side Cowdenbeath were winning 3-0 away to Stirling Albion and would have drawn level with the Cumbernauld side had they lost at Broadwood.

It means that four points separate the bottom four, with Edinburgh ahead of Clyde and Berwick, who have dropped to second bottom three points ahead of the Blue Brazil.

Ayr United 0-0 Dundee United

Congratulations too to Alloa, who came from behind to thrash Brechin 6-1 in League One and secure a place in the promotion play-offs.

Amateurs Queen's Park jump into third place on goal difference from Airdrieonians after a 2-0 win over Albion Rovers.

The Diamonds lost 2-1 away to Stranraer but remain a point ahead of Brechin, who drop out of the play-off spots.

Stranraer's win keeps them three points ahead of Peterhead, who themselves had a fine 2-1 win away to East Fife to move five points ahead of bottom-placed Stenhousemuir - losers 1-0 at home to champions Livingston.

Ayr United 0-0 Dundee United

Remember that the last Championship fixture of the day, between Ayr United and Dundee United, has just started live on TV - on BBC Alba.

A victory for the home side would draw them level on points with Dumbarton and St Mirren at the foot of the table.

United are seeking a win that would take them above Falkirk and into second place.

'Huge decision killed us' - Foran

FT: Motherwell 4-2 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Richie Foran on BBC Radio Scotland thinks Scott McDonald's goal, which put Motherwell 3-2 ahead, should not have stood.

"My players are adamant it was not over the line and one of their players," he said after his side slipped five points adrift at the foot of the Premiership table.

"Devastated and it is a huge decision for the linesman to make.

"He's got to be 100% sure and it has killed us.

"We panicked a bit at 2-2 each and there was some schoolboy defending, but credit to the most of them - they had an outstanding game.

"At this stage, you would settle for a play-off place, but today an official has killed us and has got it wrong from the sound of it.

"I love the club, I am giving 100% and I can't take the blame for most of that today."

Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Richie Foran

'We stood up to it and were very strong'

FT: St Johnstone 1-2 Aberdeen

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "I thought we controlled the opening half hour of the game and deservedly went a couple of goals ahead.

"We were very polished with our work and expected St Johnstone to come out and we are annoyed at the way we started the second half.

"I thought we stood up to it well after their penalty and limited their chances to a minimum and deserved the three points.

"I thought we were very strong.

"Having the Scottish Cup to focus on has been good for us and we hope we can get ourselves to another final."

'We gave Aberdeen too much respect'

FT: St Johnstone 1-2 Aberdeen

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright on BBC Radio Scotland: "We didn't start at all and showed Aberdeen too much respect and we found ourselves two down to one of the best defences in the country.

"Danny Swanson gives us that bit of spark and can be happy with what he did when he came on.

"Obviously Aberdeen will finish higher than us this season, but we are happy with our league position.

"Our tails are up as that's the highest points total we've had going into the split and we have that four-point gap between ourselves and Hearts."

Dempster delight for Hibees

FT: Hibernian 3-0 Queen of the South

Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster is now looking forward to leading her club back to Scotland's top flight.

"It's great to be promoted," she said. "We have worked hard towards it.

"We could not have done it without the support.

"We all know how big this club is and we are looking forward to our return to the Premiership.

"We have a great squad of players, a great management team and a brilliantly solid base."

'It's been a long three years'

"They were fantastic today and that is what they are capable of," he said.

"They have had to wait a few years for this and we are back.

"Hopefully we won't be back down for quite a while.

"We were favourites going into the league and they have lived up to that billing and we have a Scottish Cup semi-final to look forward to.

"I've got a promotion on my CV and I've never had that before."

The officials ruled that goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams failed to prevent Scott McDonald's header putting Motherwell 3-2 ahead.

Goodwillie hat-trick for Clyde

David Goodwillie, a controversial signing for Clyde after a recent court case, has repaid the Cumbernauld club with a hat-trick within 12 minutes against Elgin City.

The former Scotland striker, whose career has taken a tumble since his big-money move from Dundee United to Blackburn Rovers, has brought the Bully Wee back from 2-0 down at home against promotion-chasing Elgin City to lead.

Until then, Cowdenbeath, sitting bottom of League Two but 3-0 up away to Stirling Albion, were on track to draw level on points in the battle to avoid a relegation play-off.

What a controversial moment in this crucial relegation battle. 

Scott McDonald nods the ball against the post and keeper Owain Fon Williams pushes it out. The officials decide the ball had crossed the line but it looks very close and Fon Williams certainly felt he had kept it out.
