Killie 'were the better team' - McCulloch

FT: Kilmarnock 0-1 Hearts

Kilmarnock manager Lee McCulloch, after his side's second straight home league defeat of the season: "I thought we were the better team. It was a sloppy goal to lose after five minutes but that was a bit of a wake-up call for us and after that I thought we were a lot better for the rest of the match.

"We were a little bit unlucky with Rory McKenzie's chance and another couple of half-chances to put crosses in, but I thought we sort of dominated and it is a little bit hard to take. But we need to dust ourselves down and go again.

"Hearts are a definite top-four side in this league and to play the way we did for 85 minutes against them that is where the positives come from, albeit we didn't get anything from the game.

"There might be a chance to get one more player in, maybe two, but we will wait and see."

Kilmarnock boss Lee McCulloch
"We were a little bit unlucky..."

'Two tired teams' - McInnes

FT: Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes: "If you're going to lose a goal, lose it in the first minute, it gives you plenty of time to get back involved. But we were too dippy at the start. We gave away a stupid free-kick and then we don't deal with it.

"It's a gift. It was almost coming up here 1-0 down. So we had it all to do, and after 20 minutes we started to get our game going.

"I thought there was a lot of tired players out there. My players having their fourth game in nine days, Ross County having extra-time in midweek, but I thought our willingness and determination to make the game go our way was evident.

"Shay [Logan] has an unbelievable scoring record against Ross County. He was talking about it yesterday.

"The only striker that has scored is Miles Storey and we've let him go. The attacking threats we've got we'll more than chip in with goals this season. Adam Rooney has always done it, Nicky Maynard was lovely, and I thought Stevie May had an fantastic debut, and Jayden Stockley gives us something different."

Wright says red cards were right

FT: St Johnstone 4-1 Motherwell

St Johnstone were 4-1 and three men up at the end of today's meeting with Motherwell and the McDiarmid Park boss Tommy Wright told BBC Scotland: "David [Wotherspoon] thinks he is getting the ball, he can nick the ball. If you handle it outside the box you always have that danger of a red card, it was a red card [for Motherwell goalkeeper Trevor Carson].

"The third one was definitely a red card [for Charles Dunne] and if anything the [Carl] McHugh tackle from where I was - my lad said, even though he won the ball - was two-footed off the ground.

"Even if you win the ball you can't tackle like that. Maybe the ref could have given a straight red. But yellow and a red to follow was the right decision.

"It's three points for us. We had it last year, self-inflicted with Danny [Swanson] and Richard [Foster] getting sent off [at Hamilton]. It happens. It shouldn't take away that we have won the game and the three points are ours."

'We're only going to get better' - May

FT: Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

Aberdeen striker Stevie May after making his debut: "It's a hard place to come. Over the season you'll see a lot of teams struggle up here. Grinding out wins up here is definitely something that is a bonus. It's three points well deserved for us.

"We played well in spells before the half-time whistle and carried that into the second half.

"We've got four attacking players that can play in every one of the positions, we can intertwine, and evolve through the pitch between us.

"There's no-one who can't play left and no-one who can't play right, so it's definitely a bonus to have that in the squad. But our link-up play is only going to get better.

"I don't think competition is ever bad. The numbers and quality we've got is testament to the ambition of the club. It's a good start from my point of view."

'We gave it everything' - McIntyre

FT: Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

Ross County manager Jim McIntyre: "The first 15 minutes I was really pleased, we really got at Aberdeen. But after that we were guilty of gifting the ball away.

"When I look back at the chances, most of their chances are outside of the box, and the saves from Scott Fox are ones you expect him to make, so I'm really disappointed.

"In the second half we were flagging, maybe the extra-time in midweek had an effect, but it's no excuse, we're a fit team.

"Aberdeen are a top side. You need to defend well when you come up agaisnt good teams and I felt we did that. In the main the boys gave it everything they had, they just didn't have the bit of extra quality."

Ross County boss Jim McIntyre
"In the second half we were flagging..."

Motherwell appeal

'Once we found our feet we were excellent' - Lennon

FT: Rangers 2-3 Hibernian

Hibs boss Neil Lennon: "I didn't relish the first 15 minutes, we didn't start very well at all. Rangers came out of the blocks very well. I was really disappointed with the first goal we conceded from the set play.

"But once we found our feet in the game we were excellent. I think we thoroughly deserved to win the game."

"We scored a great equaliser and grew into the game. The red card [for Ryan Jack] put us in the ascendancy and we made the most of the numerical advantage. My only criticism is that we didn't win the game by more.

"We played great in the second half and made the pitch big. We cut them open at times but were a bit wasteful in front of goal. We saw the game out quite well - I'm delighted."

'Massive win' for Hearts - Daly

FT: Kilmarnock 0-1 Hearts

Hearts interim boss Jon Daly is understandably a happy man after celebrating a first win in charge since taking over from the departed Ian Cathro.

"It's a massive win," he told BBC Scotland. "We haven't won here since April 2013 so it shows how difficult a place it is to come. The players showed a lot of the characteristics that people have questioned over the last while - determination, the will to fight and hard work. I thought we saw that in abundance today.

"The effort off the ball was different class. We know we can do better on the ball but when the group is low on confidence, you can understand why. We weren't at our best on the ball but I was delighted for big Isma with the goal, 'Laff' [Kyle Lafferty] up top was was excellent, the boys in the middle were different class and while Jack Hamilton didn't have a lot to do, I thought his handling was different class.

"His double save was outstanding. He is young goalkeeper who has had a lot of criticism but we have a lot of high hopes for him."

Saints gaffer 'gets the best' out of O'Halloran

FT: St Johnstone 4-1 Motherwell

St Johnstone's on-loan Rangers winger Michael O'Halloran netted twice in today's 4-1 win over Motherwell, who had three players sent off - two of which came in the last 15 minutes.

"Obviously delighted to chip in with two goals," O'Halloran told BBC Scotland.

"It was a bit strange at the end. We'll take the four goals and move on to the next game.

"I'm enjoying it here. The gaffer's a huge part of it for me. He knows how to get the best out of me."

Hibs' winning sequence

Rangers 2-3 Hibernian

Chick Young

"The last three Hibs v Rangers games have all finished 3-2 to Hibs at three different venues..."

Easter Road, Hampden and Ibrox to be precise.

'This Hibs team is full of goals'

Rangers 2-3 Hibernian

Tom English

Chief sports writer, BBC Scotland

"It's a huge win for Hibs and Neil Lennon. They've announced themselves back in the Premiership; they've gone to a big stadium with a capacity crowd and they've turned Rangers over. That's a real statement from Hibs. This Hibs team is full of goals and confidence - everything on the up.

"We'll see what happens with the Rangers supporters and what they make of Pedro Caixinha. Certainly, the pressure is on Caixinha already. It's a sore one for Rangers.

"It's a major blow to their pride and Caixinha has some explaining to do..."

GOAL St Johnstone 4-1 Motherwell (Davidson)

Motherwell in disarray at the back as Richard Foster tees up Murray Davidson to sweep the ball home from the edge of the box.


Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

What a shot from Jim O'Brien. The Ross County man thumps a long range effort that rattles the bar. Aberdeen goalkeeper had absolutely no chance. The bar is still vibrating.


Three minutes of added time at Ibrox. Can Rangers find a late, late equaliser or will Hibs see it out to claim victory in this five-goal thriller?

Free-kick to Rangers in a promising position... Bruno Alves curls it over the crossbar.


St Johnstone 3-1 Motherwell

Russell Griffiths denies Michael O'Halloran a hat-trick, diving to his left to make the save.


St Johnstone 3-1 Motherwell

Charles Dunne catches Graham Cummings and concedes a penalty.

Dunne is dismissed.


Kilmarnock 0-1 Hearts

Rory McKenzie goes down in the area and Kilmarnock claim a penalty, but referee Stephen Finnie waves it away, much to the disgust of the home fans.

BBC Scotland pundit Willie Miller comments: "I didn't think it was a penalty. I thought he went down far too easily."

Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

Nicky Maynard, with his first touch, comes close to grabbing his first goal for Aberdeen. Ryan Christie slips the ball through to him and only a deflection off a defender denies him.Then, from the corner, Maynard heads over at the back post, the ball reaching him just a little too quickly.

GOAL Hamilton Academical 3-0 Dundee (Imrie)

Scott Bain goes the right way, but Dougie Imrie's penalty is too powerful, and Accies are cruising to victory now.

Strength and depth

Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland in Dingwall

The Dons have been utterly dominant in this second period and seem to have answered a tough examination powerfully.

They've pressed County back and had been knocking on the door before Shay Logan's goal.

What's impressive is now they've introduced Ryan Christie and young Scott Wright from a very talented looking bench.

County are creeping back in but have lacked threat for quite some time now and may be picked off.

Six of the best

Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

Shay Logan's goal for Aberdeen is, incredibly, the right-back's SIXTH goal against Ross County. He must have a personal vendetta against the people of Dingwall.

Hamilton Academical 2-0 Dundee

Accies can wrap things up from the penalty spot, as David Templeton is felled in the box...

Roof has fallen in on Motherwell

St Johnstone 3-1 Motherwell

The sending-off of Trevor Carson is not as clear cut as initially thought. I've seen the replays and there is possibly a case the keeper handled the ball on the line. It will be pored over on Sportscene tomorrow night, undoubtedly. It did appear to be outside of the box at the time, to be fair to the referee. But St Johnstone took advantage with O'Halloran scoring his second of the match to virtually guarantee three points for the home side. Carl McHugh then got himself sent-off for Motherwell with a foul on Brian Easton, the frustration boiling over.


Ross County 1-2 Aberdeen

Ross County twice come close to an equaliser.Thomas Mikkelsen should really have Ross County level. A mix-up between Andrew Considine and goalkeeper Joe Lewis allows the Dane the opportunity, but he fluffs his chance.Then another defensive error gives Jim O'Brien a sight of goal, and Lewis does well to get down low to tip it wide.

GOAL Rangers 2-3 Hibernian (Tavernier)

Now that makes it interesting again... Danny Wilson crosses from the left and up pops James Tavernier to nod across keeper Ofir Marciano at the back post.


Hamilton Academical 2-0 Dundee

Oh dear. That rather sums things up for Dundee - Scott Allan thumps the spot-kick high over the crossbar. The away fans are heading for the exits now.


Rangers 1-3 Hibernian

HIbs defender Efe Ambrose threatens from a corner but his looping header is ushered over the crossbar by busy Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.


Hamilton Academical 2-0 Dundee

Dundee with a massive chance to get back into this one, after Danny Williams was brought down in the box.
