Top-six focus on Sunday

Thanks for your company on a thrilling conclusion to the three leagues below the Premiership.

Of course, events move on to the respective play-offs, while the top-flight relegation battle is still on the boil after Caley Thistle's win over Hamilton.

Tomorrow, the focus moves to the top six, with Partick Thistle hosting their Glasgow derby with Rangers.

Meanwhile, Hearts will say goodbye to their old stand at home to second-top Aberdeen.

Caixinha eyes Warriors inspiration

If you are more of a rugby person, BBC Two Scotland has live coverage right now of the day's big derby - Glasgow Warriors against Edinburgh.

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has been spotted in the stand at Scotstoun.

He said earlier this week he is looking to restructure his squad. Would he not be better at a football game scouting possible fresh talent?

Then again, maybe he is looking for a few, left-field tactical tips from the Pro12 encounter!

Rodgers hails 18-year-old duo

FT: Celtic 4-1 St Johnstone

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland: "It was a really exciting performance for the supporters and a joy to watch the team play to that level. 

"We were very good for the first 35 minutes without getting the goal, but we started the second half really well and just switched off for some reason to concede the goal. 

"But our response was spectacular. We scored four goals and maybe could have finished with six or seven if we had been more clinical.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers (centre) praised Michael Johnston and Anthony Ralston

"I've been encouraging Patrick [Roberts] to get into the box because with his quality, he has the ability to score more goals and it was a great bit of individual skill from Callum [McGregor] - he is performing at the top level right now. 

"I was delighted with the two young players who made their first starts. You can see the profile of Mikey Johnston, he is similar to Scott Sinclair - slight, fast, dynamic. With more involvement, he will become more prolific, but he worked very hard too to press the play. 

"I thought Tony [Anthony Ralston] was exceptional. You can see the maturity now in his performance; you would think he'd played 50 games already - it was an outstanding first start from him." 

Killie not safe - McCulloch

Kilmarnock manager Lee McCulloch on BBC Scotland: "We were off it today. 

"Even the last 20 minutes, yes, it looked like we finished the game well, but we weren't at it. 

"We were nowhere near the standards we have had in the last six or seven weeks and the boys have been told that. 

"They know that themselves anyway. Really disappointed with the full 90 minutes, never mind the first 60 or 70. No quality at all.

"We are not safe. We will only be safe when it is mathematically impossible [to be relegated]."

McCann proud of Dundee team

Dundee manager Neil McCann told BBC Scotland he was delighted with the players' response after two wins in a row since he took over as manager.

"They just give everything," he said after the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock. "I am so proud of them, I am so happy with them. 

"We ask them to carry out a game plan and sometimes that game plan can be manipulated by the opposition and they ask questions of you, but we trust our shape and what we have been working on, being hard to beat.

"Kilmarnock threw everything at us towards the end there and Scott Bain came up with a save."

SFA defends ticket allocation

The Scottish FA has responded to Celtic's statement complaining that they could receive a smaller allocation than Aberdeen for the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park.

"The allocation of tickets has been handled in full consultation with both participating clubs and the available seating at Hampden Park will be split on a 50/50 basis, as has been standard practice in previous cup finals where a sell-out crowd is anticipated," said the governing body.

"It should also be noted that one of the reasons Celtic will potentially receive fewer tickets than Aberdeen is that the East Stand, Celtic’s preferred stand for Scottish Cup matches at the National Stadium, contains fewer seats than the West Stand.

"In addition, the ‘football family’, made up of Scottish FA members, commercial partners, other recognised football organisations and staff, have the right to buy match tickets for the final.

"This has impacted on the number of tickets the clubs will receive to sell to their supporters with demand for tickets in the Celtic areas outweighing that of the Aberdeen areas."

Campbell delight at edging Forfar

Arbroath manager Dick Campbell admitted to BBC Radio Scotland that he was particularly happy to have beaten Forfar to the title - he was sacked by the Loons in December 2015. 

"I think the second week in January, Forfar beat us and went 11 points clear," he said.

"I said to them that we would win this championship and we just pegged away at them. 

"At the end of the day, there is only one team top and we deserve it."

Campbell had a personal battle against kidney cancer.

"After what I've been through, six years ago I would never have thought I would be experiencing this," he added.

Cowden face East Kilbride

Cowdenbeath will now face a play-off against East Kilbride in a two-legged play-off to retain their status in the SPFL.

The Lowland League champions beat Highland League counterparts Buckie Thistle 2-1 on the day and 4-3 on aggregate in a match in which the visitors ended the game with nine men.

Can Kilby become the second team in two years to win promotion from the Lowland League, following Edinburgh City's win over East Stirlingshire?

Arbroath win title, Cowden face play-off

The SPFL helicopter finally landed in Stirling as Arbroath secured the League Two title and promotion after a nervy 1-1 draw.

Forfar's collapse from a healthy mid-season lead was completed by a 4-2 capitulation at home to Annan, despite the third-top side resting several players ahead of the play-offs.

Indeed, that duo are again in opposition in the two-leg semi-final.

Montrose scored a late equaliser against Clyde to secure the last promotion play-off spot.

They finished a point ahead of Elgin, who were held at home to Cowdenbeath.

The visitors needed a win to have a chance of avoiding a relegation play-off.

Even a win would not have been enough for the Fifers after Berwick beat Edinburgh City and Clyde grabbed a vital point of their own.

Stenhousemuir are relegated

Stenhousemuir were finally relegated after a day of fluctuating fortunes at the foot of League One.

Their 1-1 draw at home to Brechin was not enough and Peterhead's comeback win over Alloa means the Blue Toon finish second bottom and face a play-off to retain their place.

Airdrieonians also came from behind to beat Queen's Park and finish third, securing a promotion play-off spot.

Brechin's point at Ochilview was enough to take the other play-off spot as East Fife stumbled to defeat away to Stranraer.

Livingston had, of course, already won the title, with Alloa in second.

Ayr relegated, Rovers face play-off

Falkirk's 1-0 win away to Dumbarton ensures that they finish runners-up in the Championship.

They will await the winner of the play-off quarter-final between Dundee United and Morton, who drew 1-1 in Greenock.

Ayr are relegated to League One after their defeat by Raith Rovers, who finish second bottom despite their 2-1 win after playing 86 minutes with 10 men after goalkeeper Pavol Penksa's red card.

St Mirren and Dumbarton stay ahead of Rovers on goal difference, the former ensuring their safety with a draw away to champions Hibs.

RED CARD

East Kilbride 2-1 Buckie Thistle (Agg: 4-3)

Buckie are down to nine men after Chris Angus gets second yellow for diving in their play-off semi-final.

GREAT SAVE!

Kilmarnock 0-1 Dundee

Scott Bain makes another fine stop to keep Dundee ahead at Rugby Park. This time, he gets down low to parry Kris Boyd's effort.

GOAL Forfar Athletic 2-4 Annan Athletic

Aidan Smith

Aidan Smith scores his seventh goal of the season on the break and that surely ends Forfar's title hopes in League Two and hands it to Arbroath.

GOAL Dumbarton 0-1 Falkirk

Nathan Austin

Falkirk look to secure second place in the Championship as Nathan Austin gives them the lead at Dumbarton.

GOAL Montrose 1-1 Clyde

Christopher Templeman

Veteran striker Chris Templeman's equaliser against Clyde means that Montrose are in pole position to pip Elgin for a promotion play-off place.

Meanwhile, Clyde must hang on to ensure that they don't face a play-off at the other end.

GREAT SAVE!

Kilmarnock 0-1 Dundee

Dee keeper Scott Bain pulls off a great point-blank save from a Greg Kiltie header as the Dens men stay on course for a huge win.

GOAL Peterhead 3-2 Alloa

Jordon Brown

Jordon Brown gives Peterhead the lead as they continue their comeback.

That would mean that Stenhousemuir, who are drawing with Brechin, would be relegated and Peterhead into the play-off if it stays that way.

MISSED PENALTY

Raith Rovers 1-1 Ayr United

Rovers goalkeeper Conor Brennan saves Alan Forrest's penalty to keep the 10 men in the game and in with a chance of avoiding a relegation play-off.

'Sensational' McGregor extends Celtic lead

Celtic 4-1 St Johnstone

Steven Thompson

Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

"That is absolutely unbelievable from McGregor, dancing past four or five St Johnstone defenders.  Football shouldn't be that easy.  

"Tommy Wright will be furious that nobody has got a tackle in, but regardless of that, McGregor's technique and composure were sensational."

GOAL Stirling Albion 1-1 Arbroath

Blair Henderson

Blair Henderson's equaliser for Stirling from the penalty spot means Arbroath's lead at the top of League Two is again on a knife edge.

Can Forfar continue their comeback at home to Annan and claim a victory that would mean they would leapfrog Arbroath?

GOAL Raith Rovers 1-1 Ayr United

Ross Docherty

Ross Docherty grabs an equaliser against 10-man Raith Rovers, who are looking increasingly unlikely to catch St Mirren and avoid a relegation play-off.

GOAL Celtic 4-1 St Johnstone

Callum McGregor

Callum McGregor has only been on the field for a minute, but he immediately slices through the St Johnstone defence before showing composure to pick his spot and score his third goal in as many games.

Kilby in control

East Kilbride 2-1 Buckie Thistle (Agg: 4-3)

East Kilbride remain in pole position in the pyramid play-off semi-final.

They are not only ahead of Highland League champions Buckie but have a man advantage with Drew Copeland having picked up a second booking just before half-time.

GOAL Motherwell 0-1 Ross County

Christopher Routis

Christopher Routis sticks out his toe to knock the ball over the line following Michael Gardyne's low ball across.

Home huff and puff

Kilmarnock 0-1 Dundee

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Sport Scotland at Rugby Park

Dundee deservedly ahead and Haber atoning for his first-half miss with the opening goal here. The away side remain the livelier - Mark O'Hara with a header just wide of the post. 

Kilmarnock did look initially more dangerous in the second-half with the introduction of Greg Kiltie, but it's been more huff and puff from the home side today truth be told.

What a miss

Kilmarnock 0-1 Dundee

Dundee should be 2-0 up by now, but former Killie man Mark O'Hara heads wide from close range after a delightful delivery from Tom Hateley.

All change in League One

Just when it looked like Stenhousemuir were heading for relegation, Adam Martin puts Alloa 2-1 up away to Peterhead.

The Blue Toon drop to bottom after Oliver Shaw, seconds later, gives Stenny an equaliser against Brechin.

GOAL Hibernian 1-1 St Mirren

Rory Loy

Rory Loy's equaliser is bad news for Raith Rovers, who are back in the relegation play-off place in the Championship as St Mirren head for the point they need for safety.

GOAL Celtic 3-1 St Johnstone

Patrick Roberts

Zander Clark does well to keep out Leigh Griffiths' initial effort, but Scott Sinclair - on as a substitute for teenage debutant Michael Johnston - is alert to keep the rebound in play and cuts it back into the path of Patrick Roberts, who sticks out his left foot to touch home his second goal of the game.

GOAL Greenock Morton 1-1 Dundee United

Blair Spittal

United equalise through Blair Spittal but need another goal if they are to have a chance of leapfrogging Falkirk into second place in the Championship.

CLOSE!

Mothewell 0-0 Ross County

Lionel Ainsworth beats his man and fires into the side netting for Motherwell.

A pass to a team-mate may have been the better option.

GOAL Kilmarnock 0-1 Dundee

Marcus Haber

A huge moment for Dundee as they look to put as much distance between themselves and the bottom two spots as possible. 

Paul McGowan twists and turns on the left hand side and then pops the ball into the box where Marcus Haber shows great strength to hold off a defender and nod the ball beyond Freddie Woodman.

Ouch!

Kilmarnock 0-0 Dundee

Kilmarnock go close to the opening goal in bizarre circumstances as Greg Kiltie chases down a back-pass and, as Dee goalkeeper Scott Bain tries to clear, it smashes the Killie man in the face and goes wide.

That could have ended up in the net. As it turned out, Kiltie needs a few minutes to recover. It lookes a sore one.
