    BBC Scotland News

    Your Scotland Live team are signing off after another great day of action from the Glasgow 2014 games.

    We'll be back tomorrow morning at 09:00 BST to bring you regular updates on the day's news, sport, travel and weather across the country.

    So it's good night from us, and goodnight from our new friends who have just popped into the newsroom for a tour.

    Tomorrow's action

    There's at least one guaranteed Scottish medal on the final day of the Commonwealth Games, as Kirsty Gilmour competes in the gold medal match of the badminton women's singles.

    There's also the prospect of bronze in the squash men's doubles where Alan Clyne and Harry Leitch take on Daryl Selby and James Wilstrop of England.

    In the men's road race David Millar will be desperate to claim gold in what will be his final race at a major multi-sport event before retiring.

    And Katie Archibald will look to add to the bronze she won on the track in the women's event.

    Super Saturday round-up

    The penultimate day of action from the Commonwealth Games did not disappoint.

    Team Scotland racked up their 50th medal when the mail man Charlie Flynn delivered gold in the light 60kg final.

    More medal glory followed when Josh Taylor took gold in the light welter 64kg event, while Imogen Bankier and Robert Blair took bronze in the badminton mixed doubles.

    Chris O'Hare finished in a respectable sixth place in the men's 1,500m and Micky Yule was pipped to bronze in the para powerlifting heavyweight group A (from 72.1kg) event by Malaysia's Jong Yee Khie.

    Scotland's women did well in the 5,000m with Laura Whittle sixth, Elizabeth Potter ninth and Stephanie Twell 14th and Grace Reid finished ninth in the 3m springboard dive final.

    The heavens opened over Hampden Park and we found out that Jamaica are still the best 4x100m relay team, and Usain Bolt isn't afraid to wear a tartan bonnet.

    Yellow warning

    The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of rain, which is valid from 00:15 BST to 23:00 BST on Sunday.

    An area of persistent and at times heavy rain will continue to move north across much of Scotland. Winds will become strong, with a risk of gales over coasts and hills.

    The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding and of disruption to transport.

    Not everyone's happy

    Not everyone has bought into Usain Bolt bringing a feel-good factor to the Games.

    Fergie in Aberdeen texted 80295 to say: "How nice of Bolt to do what his sponsors have ordered him to do and put on this cringing act!!! He is a fraud!!!"

    League Cup kicks off

    There are 14 ties scheduled to be played in this afternoon's League Cup, providing the weather does not intervene. All eyes will be on Falkirk who were in impressive form in the Petrofac Training Cup last week. With a raft of summer signings they are threatening to elbow their way into the race for promotion along with Scottish Championship favourites Rangers, Hearts and Hibs. The Bairns are away to Montrose.

    Aberdeen won the Scottish League Cup in March 2014

    Premiership sides Dundee and Hamilton are also in action, with the Dark Blues hosting the Blue Toon of Peterhead, and Arbroath the visitors to New Douglas Park.

    The trophy has been a generous one if you're a team trying to end a trophy drought. The last three winners have been Aberdeen (18 years without a trophy), St Mirren (26 years) and Kilmarnock (15 years).

    Celtic will start the tournament as favourites but have not managed to get their hands on the trophy since 2009. Full League Cup fixtures

    Relief for Gilmour

    After reaching the badminton women's singles final, Hamilton's Kirsty Gilmour tells BBC Scotland reporter John Barnes: "I can't even explain it. I had nightmares about not being able to hit the shuttle. You've no idea the relief and happiness that I have that it went to plan.

    (On coming back from 19-11 down in second game to win) "I didn't know whether I was going to save myself for the second set and give those two points. Then I got one and two and three and I was like, 'well, you can't stop going'. My legs kicked in and I was able to step up the pace and it worked out a dream. I can't wait to get out there tomorrow and use this crowd to my advantage.

    (On facing Michelle Li of Canada in the final) "I've never played her before. I'm looking forward to it. I'll head back to the village and get a good rest. This is the exact position I wanted to be in. I can't tell you how happy I am that I'm here."

    Steven, Kirkcaldy: Was at Hampden last night. The roar at Lynsey Sharp's silver was the match of anything I've heard at Scotland games. Electrifying. My loose claim to be connected with Lynsey is that I got her dad's autograph at a BB event when I was a kid. Sadly it never inspired me as a runner. My favourite event was the 100m as that was the one that was over quickest. Great last night though.

    In Glasgow on the M77, the northbound onslip at J2 Silverburn is closed because of a fluid spillage so you'll have to divert.

    Commonwealth Games events at six venues today mean very busy roads. Trains through Central and Argyle Street will be busy throughout the day. And if you're heading to Edinburgh, bear in mind that trains go from Central, Queen Street High level and Queen Street Low level.

    Latest weather

    Looking at today's weather and a yellow 'be aware' warning for rain is in place for many parts today.

    Cloud and rain are moving north and giving most places a spell of wet weather this afternoon. But the far north-west mainland along with the Northern and Western isles should escape the rain and stay dry, and some drier weather is possible across the south-east later this afternoon.

    It'll become rather windy along the west coast by the afternoon with a fresh north or north-easterly wind developing. And all parts will feel distinctly cool this afternoon with highs no better than 16 or 17 Celsius, that's around 61F.

    Then this evening will remain wet with some heavy rain in places, and turning wet in the far northwest too.

    Lynsey Sharp, Commonwealth 800m silver medallist

    Scotland's Commonwealth 800m silver medallist Lynsey Sharp tells BBC Radio Scotland: "I got a message from someone on Facebook today saying 'I don't think you'll appreciate the effect you've had on the country'. To hear stories like that is amazing. I've had a chronic infection in my foot as a result of surgery.

    "Also, I was in the clinic in the Athletes' Village until 5.30 yesterday morning throwing up. I was on a drip. I literally had three hours' sleep. I had porridge and scrambled egg so I was running on zero but I managed to pull it out the bag. What made it so much more special was being able to pick people out in the crowd - friends, team-mates, friends' parents.

    "During the medal ceremony I made a point to look around and take it all in. I will watch it back to hear just how loud the Hampden Roar was."

    Rangers fan Sharp also reveals she hopes to be invited on to the pitch at Ibrox, possibly with Hearts supporter Eilidh Child, another silver medallist, when the teams meet in the Championship.

    Fantastic gymnastics

    There was giddy excitement this morning as two Scotland tracksuited athletes sporting big medals came into BBC Scotland's offices in Pacific Quay. Gymnasts Dan Keatings and Daniel Purvis spoke to Kenny Crawford on BBC Radio Scotland about their marvellous achievements.

    Keatings, whose father was born in Edinburgh, said: "I never expected to do so well so to come away with two silvers and a gold. You want to see your friends and team-mates do well and it was great to see Daniel Purvis win the gold. There was disappointment when I didn't get selected for the Olympics but I sat down with my coach and came up with a plan."

    Purvis, whose mother's family hail from Dundee, won gold in the parallel bars on Friday. He said: "To come away with a gold and a silver is just fantastic. To make history with the first team medal (for Scotland) it feels like a repeat of the Olympics."

    Travel update

    My colleague Victoria Lumsden is in the traffic hot seat, calmness personified when all around is chaotic. She has these words for motorists and Commonwealth Games-goers to consider...

    In Aberdeenshire, the northbound A90 outside Stonehaven near Muchalls Bend remains closed following an accident early this morning. Diversions are via Netherlee Road.

    On the M8 between Edinburgh and Harthill, heavy rain is causing surface water and poor visibility so slow down and take care. It's especially bad between junction 2 Claylands and 4 Whitburn.

    And in Glasgow, it's probably best to leave your car at home today because a very busy day is expected on the roads and public transport. Around 130,000 people are expected at six Commonwealth Games venues. It's getting busy now at Scotstoun and at the Emirates Arena, so leave plenty of time for your journey.
