Dons win 'as good as any at home this season'

FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Partick Thistle

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "An early goal could have changed the dynamic of the game but I thought Partick were set up really well; they had a game plan to nullify us.

"At half-time we told the players not to get frustrated. Conditions were really difficult, the wind was playing havoc all night and the pitch was a bit slippy. But we tried to change things tactically and get Ryan Christie and Graeme Shinnie making those runs forward.

"The goal was fantastic. Ryan was bright as a button and showed real quality to lay it on a plate for Adam.

"It's as good as any three points we have had here this season. The conditions were horrible but the players have got the reward for a lot of hard work. It wasn't slick like the Hibs game, but it is still three points and I am really pleased with the clean sheet."

Jack in a brace and a doubt for Old Firm game

FT: Rangers 2-0 Motherwell

Rangers manager Graeme Murty: "There were parts I liked and parts that really irritated me. We can be better if we learn the lessons from this one.

"We had a couple of clearcut opportunities where we could have been more clinical, but centre-forwards keep getting in the right area.

"It’s a work in progress, we’re moving towards where we want to be, but wins at this stage of the season push us on.

"[Jack’s injury] looked awful, but we need to be calm and let our medical staff assess him. He’s in a brace at the moment and we’ll look at him tomorrow. You’d have to say he is [a doubt for Saturday against Celtic]."

Controversial penalty decision in Dingwall

FT: Ross County 1-1 St Johnstone

Tommy Wright talking to BBC Radio Scotland: "We only have ourselves, probably, to blame. I did think we played well. Probably didn't work their keeper enough. We got into as many good opportunities as they did but they made more of them and worked our keeper more than we did.

"I think the penalty decision, and I've seen it back, I don’t see how he can be 100% that it’s inside the box. Chris Millar shouldn’t go to ground, he knows that, and he probably makes it easier for the referee. But the view he has of it. Chris’ feet & body never go inside the box so I don’t know how he can possibly have touched the player in there if his body and feet stay outside the box.

"It’s a good point. I always feel if you come away with something here it’s always a good point. I thought we played well. I thought it was a cracking game and both teams tried to win the game and were still trying to win the game at the end."

"It’s a good point" - Tommy Wright

'We should've won the game' - Coyle

FT: Ross County 1-1 St Johnstone

Ross County manager Owen Coyle: "The performances haven't been bad but it was a horrendous start. A minute into the game, a throw-in down the side and we've been caught cold - that's not acceptable. From that, I think we huffed and puffed a bit. We were a shadow of ourselves in the first half; but second half we were outstanding and should've won the game. I think St Johnstone will feel very lucky to leave with a point."

'Maybe we got a wee break' - Levein

FT: Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

Hears manager Craig Levein: "It wasn't one for the purists was it? There wasn't an awful lot happened in the game but there was plenty of effort from both teams. I thought that Hibs edged the first half - and I believe that the chance they had when they hit the bar was over the line - and we maybe got a wee break there.

Craig Levein: "I thought we were the better side in the second half"

"But in the second half I thought we were the better side and Kyle [Lafferty] has missed a fantastic chance inside the six-yard box that he'd normally put away.

"And that was about the sum of the goal attempts, there wasn't an awful lot more than that. There are a lot of positives to take from the game. It was a typical blood and thunder derby."

'Catastrophic error by officials'

FT: Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

Tom English

Chief sports writer, BBC Scotland at Tynecastle

"I agree completely with Neil Lennon in terms of the goal. It was a goal and a catastrophic error by the officials and it's changed the game completely.

"If Hibs go 1-0 up there then it's a different game. It's a mistake that shouldn't be made. He has every right to be incandescent with rage, I think any one of us would be in his position.

"They did battle, so did Hearts. Hearts are programmed to battle and that's why they're keeping a load of clean sheets and why they're not losing games - no defeat in eight.

"They can play that game of football all day and all night long. Hibs were forcing the issue and trying to play but they just weren't good enough, on the night, on this pitch, to break down what is becoming a very resolute Hearts defence."

'It was a goal' - Lennon

FT: Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

Hibernian boss Neil Lennon: "It's a goal, it should've been given. That's really poor. We can all see it where we're sitting, and the linesman, who gave every offside in the first half, didn't see the most important call and that's poor, that's really poor.

"[Referee] Steven McLean had a chat with me afterwards because I was incandescent with rage. The way the ball comes down, it's got to be a goal. It doesn't bounce straight down, it spins back out. Everyone can see it's a goal.

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon

Neil Lennon described the decision to disallow Oli Shaw's goal as "really poor"

"It's another huge call. It's getting embarrassing, and I think we've got good officials in this country, but it just makes a mockery of the game sometimes here.

"Goals change games, especially in derbies. You get the first goal in a derby, 70-80% of the time you're going to go on and win it.

"We should have three points instead of one - that might cost us as the season goes on.

"It's a gluepot of a pitch, it's impossible to play football, we saw what happened to Celtic when they tried. We came here to be hard to beat. I don't think my goalkeeper had a save to make, defensively we were superb. There was a lot of talk about what was going to happen to us coming into the game but we were by far the better team."

FULL-TIME Aberdeen 1-0 Partick Thistle

Willie Miller

Former Aberdeen defender on BBC Sportsound

The second half was much better for the Dons and over the 90 minutes, they were well worth their victory. Thistle had no chances whatsoever in the second half, they were barely up the park and I don't think they can have any complaints.

Hibs come within a whisker of breaking the deadlock as Paul Hanlon rises to head at goal but the slightest of touches from Hearts keeper Jon McLaughlin feathers the ball away from the Hibs defender.

CLOSE! CLOSE! CLOSE!

Ross County 1-1 St Johnstone

A treble chance for Ross County to grab the winner. Substitute Keillor-Dunn does well to get into the St Johnstone box and set up Jason Naismith, whose shot is saved well by Zander Clark. First to react was Alex Schalk, who managed to turn and send the ball across goal and off the far post.

Then, there's more, after coming off the post the ball was presented to Billy McKay. McKay lined up a shot which went straight at keeper Clark. Unbelievably it stayed out and the scoreline remains 1-1.

Derby stakes

Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

Thirteen minutes plus added time remaining at Tynecastle. Will we witness a winner in the Edinburgh derby? "This game's on a knife-edge," booms BBC Sportsound pundit Michael Stewart.

CLOSE!

Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

How on earth is this Edinburgh derby still goalless? Martin Boyle, who will endure a sleepless night if the visitors don't score at Tynecastle, fires in a 30-yard howitzer that whistles narrowly over the bar as a worried-looking Jon McLaughlin leaps high into the Edinburgh night sky.

PENALTY APPEAL

Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

Isma Goncalves and Marvin Bartley grapple furiously on the edge of the Hibs box. Goncalves kicks the ball up into the arm of Bartley, and Hearts scream for a penalty. Referee Steven McLean waves play-on, before Jamie Walker commits a foul and Hibs clear.

Cerny at the ready

Aberdeen 0-0 Partick Thistle

Partick Thistle's defenders leave a high bouncing ball for Tomas Cerny to deal with. The goalkeeper flaps at it and then falls to the ground as if in agony. It looked a bit overly dramatic, and sure enough Cerny is back on his feet after some treatment.

A snow shower now swirling around Pittodrie.
