Foran eager to stay

FT: Inverness 3-2 Motherwell - Inverness relegated despite win

Inverness manager Richie Foran: "I want to be here next season. I will have a chat with the board probably on Monday or Tuesday, and will find out what their thoughts are.

"But I am 100% behind this club and I expect to be here next season.

"I haven't performed well enough. I have learned a heck of a lot this season - about myself, about players, the trust of people around you, and people you don't trust.

"One of my favourite seasons as a player was getting promoted, because we stuck together. I was part of the relegated team and helped them come straight back up, and I hope to do the same next season."

Richie Foran

Inverness must 'rebuild'

FT: Inverness 3-2 Motherwell - Inverness relegated despite win

Inverness manager Richie Foran: "It's obviously disappointment. The best clubs in the world get knocked down, it's how you rebuild and come back. I've told the players there are far worse off people in life.

"But it happens in football. It is not all rosy. It is not all about winning all the time. I've been part of relegation teams - you stay loyal, you rebuild. You get knocked down, you get back up again.

"You need to get rid of the two or three players you don't want, that haven't given 100%, and I look forward to getting rid of those three.

"Of the starting XI today, I would hope to have at least 10 of those for next season [midfielder Greg Tansey is leaving to join Aberdeen]. I am very proud of the players and when we got the right team playing, we could finish well, with guys giving their all for the club.

"There are changes to be made, on and off the field. Personally I want a smaller squad. If we can get rid of the two or three bad apples in the dressing room - I probably should have got rid of them in January. I stayed loyal to a lot of players and some of them didn't pay me back."

McCulloch seeks talks on future

FT: Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

Kilmarnock interim manager Lee McCulloch: "I would say hopefully we will just get a sit-down with [director] Billy [Bowie].

"Billy is a really busy man and he has worked wonders with this club and hopefully in the next few days we will get time and have a proper chat and hopefully come to some agreement for the way forward for the club.

"I want to speak to Billy Bowie and [director] John Kiltie and let's see if we can put a plan together for the future of the club, and that's all I am going to say."

Lee McCulloch

McIntyre pleased to be 'best of the rest'

FT: Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

"That was the aim when we didn't make top six, to try and be the best of the rest. Delighted to do that. Thought we deserved our victory today.

"It was great to get some young lads on the pitch.

"[Liam Boyce is] under contract, he is a fantastic footballer. He's a great boy, he is conscientious about his job and the longer we can keep him the better.

"If he moves on to something bigger and better and somebody wants to pay the big bucks then we will just need to deal with that, but that's just part and parcel of being a manager at a football club."

Jim McIntyre

Boyce on song

FT: Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

Liam Boyce
Liam Boyce's two goals - taking his season's tally to 24 - gave Ross County victory over Kilmarnock and sealed seventh place in the Premiership for the Dingwall side

'One of Accies' best displays of season' - Canning

FT: Hamilton 4-0 Dundee

"It was a fantastic performance. We got what we deserved. All over the pitch everyone won their battles. The aim was to get the ball down and play because we had to score goals and thankfully it worked today.

"It is frustrating we have ended up in this position but we have got another positive performance, as we did during the week. That was probably one of our best performances of the season, and it is pleasing to get that under so much pressure.

"We need to take that into next week now, approach it with confidence and play with a similar tempo.

"It's going to be huge now; these two [play-off] games we have got to win to stay in the league

"Dundee United are on a high, they're a big club and we'll give them 100% respect. But we need to go there with the belief we can win the game."

Caley Thistle 'need to rebuild' in Championship

FT: Inverness 3-2 Motherwell

Barry Wilson

Former Inverness midfielder on BBC Radio Scotland

When you are relying on other teams to do you a favour, particularly ones who are safe and have nothing to play for...Inverness beat a Dundee team on Wednesday who didn't really turn up then either. Once they got the first goal today, they got a bit of a burst but the two early goals for Hamilton just meant it was immaterial. As a fan, it is difficult to get your head round but I firmly believe that things might be in hand - possibly with the board - and there might be an announcement shortly. Caley will need to rebuild. They are going to lose a few players who are earning too much for the Championship and Greg Tansey is leaving. But all the teams in the Championship will see next season as a great chance to get to the Premiership. It is going to be an open league because there is no Rangers or Hearts or Hibs.

Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

League One play-off final, second leg

Peterhead 1-5 Forfar (agg 2-7)

League Two play-off final, second leg

Cowdenbeath 1-1 East Kilbride (agg 1-1, 5-3 pens)


Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

Ross County finish as the best of the rest in the Premiership.

Liam Boyce's double gave them victory over Killie and ensured Jim McIntyre's side finished seventh - top of the bottom six.


Inverness CT 3-2 Motherwell

Inverness are relegated to the Scottish Championship.

They needed to win today but also for Hamilton to drop points and the latter's win over Dundee means it is Richie Foran's side who finish bottom of the Premiership.

GOAL Inverness CT 3-2 Motherwell

Ryan Bowman, penalty

Ryan Bowman converts a late penalty after Craig Clay is fouled.


Hamilton 4-0 Dundee

Hamilton have staved off relegation, for now.

They finish 11th in the Premiership and go into the play-off final against Championship side Dundee United.

All over

Inverness CT 3-1 Motherwell

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at the Caledonian Stadium

Inverness CT are going down and despite a stirring second-half spell in which they netted three quick-fire goals, it was taken out of their hands long ago.

It's been quite a descent since lifting the Scottish Cup just two years ago.

What matters now is what happens off the pitch. Supporters will want answers, possibly change.

The only thing certain is Inverness will be in the Championship.


Peterhead 1-5 Forfar (agg 2-7)

Forfar Athletic have won promotion to League One by winning the play-off final against Peterhead, who are relegated to League Two.

Boyce brace

Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Sport Scotland at Rugby Park

What an incredible season it has been for Liam Boyce. He's scored twice today as Ross County look likely to seal seventh place. That's 24 goals for Boyce this season - the question is, can County hang on to him for next season?

Ross County celebrate

Dundee United beware

Hamilton 4-0 Dundee

Chris McLaughlin

BBC Sport Scotland at New Douglas Park

Hamilton now playing with a real belief and freedom. Dundee know the game is gone. Their city rivals will be looking on in concern ahead of the Premiership play-off final.

Momentum can be a huge factor in football. So too, belief. Hamilton will finish this with both.

GOAL Peterhead 1-5 Forfar (2-7)

Josh Peters

Substitute Josh Peters knocks in Forfar's fifth of the day in the League One play-off final second leg.

GOAL Peterhead 1-4 Forfar (2-6)

Scott Brown

Scott Brown pulls a goal back for Peterhead.

Accies on their way to play-off

Hamilton 4-0 Dundee

Dougie Imrie scores a penalty
Veteran midfielder Dougie Imrie (far right) scored a penalty to put Hamilton three up and Ali Crawford soon added their fourth goal

Horror miss

Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

County's Alex Schalk blazes high over the bar at the back post with only the keeper to beat. That's a shocker from the striker.


Cowdenbeath 1-1 East Kilbride (1-1, 5-3 pens)

Gary Locke's Cowdenbeath win the tie after a tense afternoon at Central Park. East Kilbride remain in the Lowland League for next season.


Cowdenbeath win 5-3 on penalties

Only one miss in the Central Park shoot-out and East Kilbride must return to the Lowland League next season.

The game finished 1-1 after a 0-0 in the first leg.

Blue Brazil assistant boss Billy Brown can race back to the airport a happy man to continue his holiday...

GOAL Hamilton 4-0 Dundee

Ali Crawford

Accies are cruising now, adding to their tally in style. With the Dundee defence posted missing, Danny Redmond charges forward and shows good composure at the edge of the box to feed Ali Crawford, who rifles in his side's fourth goal of the day.

GOAL Inverness 3-1 Motherwell

James McFadden

Veteran striker James McFadden, off the bench a matter of minutes nods home after Elliot Frear's shot was tipped on to the crossbar by Ryan Esson.

GOAL Kilmarnock 1-2 Ross County

Liam Boyce

It's a second for Ross County and a second for Liam Boyce who nips in behind Kristoffer Ajer after the defender misses his header and lobs goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald.


Cowdenbeath 1-1 East Kilbride (1-1)

Spot-kicks will determine who plays in League Two next season...


Hamilton 3-0 Dundee

Dundee threaten for the first time in the second half as Remi Matthews does well to push over a header from Kevin O'Hara.

GOAL Peterhead 0-4 Forfar (1-6)

Aiden Malone

Aiden Malone gets a fourth for Forfar on the day and sixth on aggregate in the League One play-off final.

GOAL Inverness 3-0 Motherwell

Alex Fisher

Where has this ruthless Inverness been all season?

There is utter bedlam in the Highlands, as Alex Fisher bags his second in as many minutes. A rapid trio of goals, but as we keep reiterating, this late surge will not matter a jot while Accies continue to cruise to victory against Dundee.

GOAL Inverness 2-0 Motherwell

Alex Fisher

It's a quick-fire double for Caley Thistle. Big striker Alex Fisherlatches on to Billy Mckay's ball to scoop into the Motherwell net. It's all meaningless, though, unless Accies suffer a spectacular collapse.

GOAL Inverness 1-0 Motherwell

Greg Tansey

In his last game for the club, Greg Tansey fires a low, right-foot shot beyond Russell Griffiths - barring an outright miracle, it's a case of too little, too late for Inverness.

But at least they may keep up their end of the bargain.

Templeton takes a bow

Hamilton 3-0 Dundee

David Templeton gets a warm ovation from the home fans as he makes way for Louis Longridge. It's the former Hearts and Rangers winger's first start since August 2015 after a wretched time with injury and he's been excellent this afternoon.

Manager Martin Canning will be hoping for more of the same in the play-off final.

Foran's frustration

Inverness CT 0-0 Motherwell

Richie Foran
Richie Foran's first season in charge of Inverness looks like it will end in relegation

'Inverness look doomed'

Hamilton 3-0 Dundee

Chris McLaughlin

BBC Sport Scotland at New Douglas Park

Dougie Imrie smashes the ball into the back of the net from the spot like his life depended on it. Inverness look doomed now.
