What's next?

So we have an early 'top of the table' clash to look forward to next Saturday, with champions Celtic hosting St Johnstone with both sides boasting 100% records.

Aberdeen, also three from three, travel to face Partick Thistle, one of three sides yet to get a point on the board.

Kilmarnock, in the same boat as Thistle, have a fourth home game in a row, but Rugby Park has hardly brought them much comfort so far, with three straight defeats.

The other Saturday game sees Motherwell host Hearts - away from home for a fourth week in a row while Tynecastle undergoes redevelopment - while Sunday's two games see currently pointless Dundee play Hibs and Ross County entertain Rangers.

Before all that though, Celtic take a 5-0 lead to Kazakhstan as they aim to seal their passage to the Champions League group stages on Tuesday away to Astana. That one kicks off at 16:30 BST by the way.

We'll see you back here then. Thanks for you company today, and have a very good evening. Ta ta fa na.

'May has proved his worth already' - McInnes

Aberdeen 2-1 Dundee

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes admitted his side were a touch fortunate to preserve their 100% league record with victory over Dundee.

"It wasn't our normal flow and we didn't have the normal control we're used to have at Pittodrie," he told BBC Scotland. "There were some spells of the game I didn't particularly enjoy but I enjoyed winning.

"Dundee showed they're a good team. We needed to show more confidence to go and work them and ask questions. Ultimately it's about taking your chances, and it's a hell of a strike from Stevie May. He's already proved his worth. He's a fantastic player capable of big moments.

"I think Dundee will probably go back down the road feeling aggrieved they didn't get something from the game and I can understand that."

Canning revels in 'really top performance'

FT: Hibernian 1-3 Hamilton Academical

While Neil Lennon reflects on a first league defeat of the season, his Hamilton counterpart Martin Canning is revelling in a three-goal victory for the second time in eight days, after beating Dundee 3-0 last Saturday.

"Last week we were a bit defensively naive, but I thought we came here and defended really well," he told BBC Scotland.

"Scott McMann is getting better week by week and everyone was excellent to a man today. The second half was excellent and it was a really top performance."

'Reality check' for Hibs - Lennon

FT: Hibernian 1-3 Hamilton Academical

Hibs manager Neil Lennon admitted his side were off the pace physically and mentally as they suffered a surprise 3-1 home defeat by Hamilton.

"I thought in the first half we were OK without being anywhere near the level which we can play at," he told BBC Scotland. "In the second half we were very, very flat. We looked very tired at the end, but that is mental, rather than physical.

"But the better team won today. Their second goal was farcical from our point of view and sometimes you can't legislate for mistakes like that. But they scored a great third goal and sometimes you have to doff your cap.

"We have had a brilliant start to the season, and a lot of nice things about us, so this is a bit of a reality check. We have no right to win any game here. These are Premier League teams, they are streetwise and have some quality players, and Hamilton certainly deserved to win today."

'Cathro did not get Hearts fit enough' - Daly

FT: Rangers 0-0 Hearts

Hearts interim head coach Jon Daly appeared to take a swipe at predecessor Ian Cathro after his side's 0-0 draw with Rangers, saying he believes his side are lacking in fitness.

Daly told BBC Scotland: "It was satistfying in terms of the result, to come to Ibrox and get a clean sheet. We need to get the players a little bit fitter, and then we give ourselves a better chance when we come to places at Ibrox.

"As a club we probably could have done more with them (in pre-season), but obviously the manager was trying to implement the 3-4-3 system at the time and make sure he had that covered. But from my point of view the fitness levels are off where I would want them to be.

"We had a couple of opportunities. We lacked a bit of composure, but I can't fault the work rate and effort of the players.

"I don't think we did enough to win the game but I don't think we deserved to lose it. We forced them into the areas where we were quite comfortable. Apart from one save from Kenny Miller, I don't remember our goalkeeper Jack Hamilton having a lot to do."

Saints eye 'top of table clash' at Celtic

FT: St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright is understandably a happy man after his side's third straight Premiership win to start the season - a first for the club. Next Saturday they travel to Celtic to meet the champions, both boasting a 100% record.

"We are still the last team to beat them domestically, albeit under a different manager," he told BBC Scotland. "At the start of the season, if you had told me we would be going to Celtic Park for a top-of-the-table clash, I would have taken that. We will go there and try to cause an upset.

"It was a really good team goal today and a really cool finish from Micahel (O'Halloran). While it was only 1-0 you always have a bit of concern but we defended the long balls into our box and thoroughly deserved our victory today."

Dundee Utd maintain lead in Championship

It took until 10 minutes from the end to break down Brechin City, but Ray McKinnon's Dundee United - favourites for promotion back to the Premiership - belatedly got their third straight win courtesy of Scott McDonald's late winner.

Dunfermline remain in second place, two points adrift, after an eventful game at East End Park, where Joe Cardle's second goal in the last minute killed off nine-man Falkirk, who earlier had Craig Sibbald and Lee Miller sent off.

Queen of the South moved into third with a 1-0 home win over Dumbarton, while St Mirren won 3-1 at Livingston to end the hosts' 24-match unbeaten run stretching back to March.

Inverness remain bottom, but at least Caley got their first point of the season with a 1-1 home draw with Greenock Morton.

Three Premiership teams with 100% record

So maybe Celtic won't have it all their own way this season...not just yet anyway.

They may be back on top, on goal difference, after their 2-0 win earlier at Kilmarnock.

But St Johnstone have created a spot of club history with a third win from three at the start of a Premiership season for the first time, beating Partick Thistle 1-0 in Perth thanks to Michael O'Halloran's fourth goal of the campaign.

And Aberdeen, runners-up for the last three seasons, have maintained their own 100% record, new arrival Stevie May scoring twice in a 2-1 home win over Dundee.

The other team with a 100% record at the start of the day, Hibernian, had a reality check with a 3-1 home defeat by Hamilton, who enjoyed a second straight win.

Dundee remain bottom, still searching for their first points of the season, along with Kilmarnock and Partick Thistle.

But Motherwell are off the mark, with a 2-0 home win over Ross County. Check out the full table here.

FULL-TIME Aberdeen 2-1 Dundee

Aberdeen take the three points with Stevie May scoring a double on his home debut. They have ex-Dundee man Greg Stewart to thank though, who changed the game when he came off the bench. Before that Aberdeen were toiling and Dundee had chances of their own.

FULL-TIME - Rangers 0-0 Hearts

No goals at Ibrox.

A frustrating day for the hosts, who had the better of the chances. Hearts will be pleased with a point.

Niko Kranjcar and Arnaud Djoum

FULL-TIME - Dundee Utd 1-0 Brechin City

FULL-TIME - Hibernian 1-3 Hamilton

FULL-TIME - Dumfermline 3-1 Falkirk

FULL-TIME - St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Maximum points for St Johnstone as they make history by winning their first three league games for the first time.

Michael O'Halloran got the all important goal in the first half.

St Johnstone celebrate

GOAL - Hibernian 1-3 Hamilton (Stokes)

Anthony Stokes drifts to the left of the box to find space to receive a pass and slot the ball past Hamilton's Gary Woods, who will be angry to lose his clean sheet so late in the game.

GOAL - Dunfermline 3-1 Falkirk (Cardle)

That should be three points for the Pars, Joe Cardle getting his second of the game against nine-man Falkirk.

FULL-TIME - Motherwell 2-0 Ross County

GOAL - Hibernian 0-3 Hamilton (Bingham)

What a lovely goal by Hamilton and what a way to secure the three points! The Hibs fans are streaming out of the ground as the small band of travelling fans celebrate the slick passing move involving Danny Redmond and Greg Docherty that ended with Rakish Bingham side-footing home from eight yards.

Aberdeen 2-1 Dundee

Ryan Christie almost makes it 3-1. He just has to pick his spot but drags it low and wide of the far post.

Hibernian 0-2 Hamilton

Scott McMann goes on a mazy run down the left wing for Hamilton, running from his own half and skipping past Efe Ambrose on the edge of the Hibs box. If only his final ball had matched his enthusiasm for attack...

GOAL - Dumfermline 2-1 Falkirk (Taiwo)

Hope for the Bairns, who are playing with nine men, remember. Tom Taiwo has pulled a goal back at East End Park.

GOAL - Dundee Utd 1-0 Brechin City (McDonald)

GOAL Aberdeen 2-1 Dundee (May)

Ryan Christie's shot is blocked, but it falls into the path of Stevie May who rifles the ball past goalkeeper Scott Bain.

Aberdeen 1-1 Dundee

Dundee pass up another good opportunity. Roarie Deacon gets down the right flan, and as Aberdeen elect not to mark anyone, there are blue shirts queuing up in the box. A simple cut-back is all that's needed but the cross is long, high, and goes out for a throw-in on the other side.


Aberdeen 1-1 Dundee

Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain takes a sore one as Nicky Maynard slides in attempting to get to Greg Stewart's through ball, and his studs thump into Bain.

Aberdeen are starting to see more of the ball, but Bain has had little to do.

Thistle ring changes in Perth

St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Paul Mitchell

BBC Sport Scotland at McDiarmid Park

"Alan Archibald hasn't hesitated to make changes - all three substitutes used inside the first 21 minutes of the second half. Michael O'Halloran looked puzzled when his number was held up for Saints' first change,but it was an operator error on the board. The goalscorer stays on, with Stefan Scougall going off instead."

GOAL - Motherwell 2-0 Ross County (Moult pen)

Well go 2-0 up from the penalty spot.

County's Kenny van der Weg brings down Louis Moult, earning a red card for his troubles, and the Motherwell striker takes the spot-kick himself, making no mistake.

Dundee upping their game

Aberdeen 1-1 Dundee

St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Michael O'Halloran is in for St Johnstone again after stealing possession deep inside the Partick Thistle half, but his shot is too high.

Rangers 0-0 Hearts

Hearts winger Jamie Walker - a summer transfer target of Rangers' - has been replaced by Krystian Nowak and Connor Randall is also on for the visitors, Prince Buaben making way.

GOAL Hibernian 0-2 Hamilton Academical (Longridge)

Hibs defender Paul Hanlon provides the perfect assist...but unfortunately it's for an opponent. Racing back to his own goalmouth in a chase for a through ball, he inexplicably passes the ball across the edge of his box straight into the path of Louis Longridge, who rifles a shot past horrified Hibs goalie Ofir Marciano.


Hibernian 0-1 Hamilton

Hamilton's Steven Boyd makes way for Louis Longridge, while for the hosts Darren McGregor goes off as Neil Lennon sends on Vykintas Slivka, having earlier replaced Danny Swanson with new loan signing Brandon Barker.

And within a minute Longridge cracks a shot off the bar. Hibs are hanging on.


Aberdeen 1-1 Dundee

It's a sitter for Scott Allan. Dundee have Aberdeen stretched, the ball falls to Allan at the back post, but he sclaffs his shot wide of the post with Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis stranded.

Thistle's Booth off injured

St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Callum Booth has not recovered from that collision with St Johnstone goalkeeper Alan Mannus and the Partick Thistle left-back is replaced by Milan Nitriansky.

RED CARD - Falkirk's Lee Miller

Dumbarton 2-0 Falkirk

It's becoming a bit of a nightmare for Falkirk at East End Park. The Bairns are now down to nine men, with Lee Miller joining Craig Sibbald for an early bath.

GOAL - Inverness CT 1-1 Greenock Morton (Thomson)

Just one to update you on from earlier. Morton are level in Inverness, courtesy of Robert Thomson.

GOAL - Livingston 1-3 St Mirren (Reilly)

A second for Gavin Reilly in the space of nine minutes, and Livingston's 24-match unbeaten run, stretching back to March, is under threat.

St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Moments after Chris Erskine is denied by Alan Mannus, the St Johnstone goalkeeper collides with Callum Booth as both try to get to the ball. Both players receive treatment.

'Kilmarnock will be okay' - McCulloch

FT: Kilmarnock 0-2 Celtic

Kilmarnock manager Lee McCulloch was pleased with the performance of his side earlier despite their 2-0 defeat by Celtic - a third home defeat on the bounce to start their league campaign.

He told BBC Scotland: "I thought our shape was very good, the way we made Celtic go back at times. But it's a bit of magic from Tom Rogic and the second half we've opened up a little bit and it exposed us at the back and that's why we've lost the second goal.

"All in all, I'm pleased because there's a lot of positives to take from the game.

"There's no points on the board so a lot of people will panic but I know we're going to be okay."
