1658 The highlights of this game will be online at 2300 GMT. Sportscene is on BBC Two Scotland an hour before that. I'll sign off for now. Many thanks indeed for your company. All the best.

1656 Hibs are now ahead of basement side Dunfermline by four goals. It's going to be a scrap at the bottom.

1654 That makes it seven successive clean sheets for Celtic on the road, says Sportsound anchor Richard Gordon.

1653 Neil Lennon goes over to the stand packed with Celtic fans and applauds the support they have given the team. His team now lead the SPL by 17 points.

1652 FULL-TIME Hibernian 0-5 Celtic

1650 Hibs will have to regroup if they are to escape relegation. It has been a drubbing.

1649 The Hibs fans have scattered. Celtic aim for a sixth goal in the two minutes of injury time.

1647 From Trevor in Ediburgh by text on 80295: "I am at Easter Road and am quite disturbed by the mood of the Celtic fans - I know they haven't won a lot in recent years but am surprised they are celebrating so wildly when financial circumstances, rather than football ones, have handed them the title!"

1645 Celtic play the ball back to keeper Fraser Forster, perhaps just to check that he is still awake. He has had nothing to do in the second half.

1643 BBC Scotland commentator David Begg: "If it were a boxing match it would be halted."

1641 Joe Ledley makes a bold run to meet Ki's corner from the left and cracks the crossbar with his glancing header.

1640 We have 10 minutes left at Easter Road as Celtic look for a sixth goal. It's a canter for the visitors.

1638 Hibs' Lewis Stevenson is booked for a sliding challenge on Scott Brown. He looked to have won the ball there.

1637 Kris Commons rifles a wayward left-foot shot in the box and Ki Sung Yueng cannot believe his good fortune as it ricochets off his leg and slams into the net.

1636 GOAL! Hibernian 0-5 Celtic (Ki)

1635 From Kevin Harkin on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "What a great birthday present for me in NYC! Celtic running away with this one!"

1633 Celtic captain Scott Brown enters Craig Thomson's wee book with a cynical tackle on Pa Saikou Kujabi. Garry O'Connor hoofs the free-kick over the bar from 20 yards.

1631 Roy O'Donovan, on loan from Coventry City, replaces Leigh Griffiths, on loan from Wolves.

1629 Similarly, Hibs knock the ball about 30 yards from goal, working it from left to right. The move comes to a dismal end, though, when Isaiah Osbourne's cross arrows over the head of centre-forward Garry O'Connor in the Celtic box.

1626 Hibs pick up the ball after a spot of Celtic midfield possession. Garry O'Connor tries to get things going for Pat Fenlon's team but his pass to Leigh Griffiths is wayward and heavy.

1624 Adam Matthews sticks with Leigh Griffiths as he breaks down the left wing and dispossesses him. The ball arrives at Anthony Stokes 35 yards from goal and his powerful effort drifts a few feet wide.

1622 With almost half an hour to go, Hibs really could be on the end of a hammering.

1620 Celtic goal machine Gary Hooper is subbed in favour of Kris Commons.

1618 This is bad news for Hibs' goal difference. They are now at -25, while the Pars, also on 19 points at the bottom of the SPL, are on -30.

1617 Jorge Claros tries his best to get on the ball but Celtic are passing it around the Honduran midfielder.

1615 From Matthew Reilly on Twitter: "This is just embarrassing now #hibernian#bbcsportsound"

1614 From Brian Hughes on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "Celts well on top. Time for Brozek to finish them off!"

1613 It's agony for Hibs. Gary Hooper pings a right-foot shot from the corner of the box out on the left. The ball bounces just in front of Graham Stack and whizzes past the Hibs goalie into the net. Celtic are running riot.

1612 GOAL! Hibernian 0-4 Celtic (Hooper)

1610 Eoin Doyle pays the price for failing to get involved in the game and is hooked by Pat Fenlon, with Garry O'Connor his replacement.

1609 The Celtic fans are having a ball dancing in the stand behind Graham Stack, galling stuff for the home support.

1608 Gary Hooper and Anthony Stokes combine well and Stack makes a solid block from the latter's shot from 10 yards.

1607 Graham Stack is caught in a poor position in the Hibs goal and cannot stop a delicious curling free-kick by Charlie Mulgrew, who celebrates his fourth goal in the league this season.

1606 GOAL! Hibernian 0-3 Celtic (Mulgrew)

1605 Celtic win a free-kick as Anthony Stokes is fouled on the edge of the box.

1604 We're under way again.

1602 Hibs' George Francomb is on for Matt Doherty, who took that whack on the eye socket at the end of the first half in a challenge with Anthony Stokes.

1600 Not long until the teams emerge for the second half at Easter Road.

1557 As things stand, Celtic are 17 points ahead of Rangers, while Hibernian are locked with Dunfermline at the foot of the SPL table.

1555 Saints boss Steve Lomas says "it wasn't a classic" but states how proud he is of his players' efforts.

1554 Aberdeen manager Craig Brown reacts to that forgettable match at Pittodrie: "I think at the end we looked like the team that might just sneak the winner."

1553 From Bernadette in Glasgow by text on 80295: "Forget about the 10 points, Celtic were always going to be runaway winners, picking up 3 points on good and bad days, that's what champions do!"

1552 From Gary Milne on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "Those Hibs signings will never save them from the drop."

1550 Celtic are going for 18 domestic wins in a row, including 15 in the SPL. None too shabby.

1549 HALF-TIME Hibernian 0-2 Celtic

1547 Yeugh. Anthony Stokes' elbow catches Matt Doherty on the eye and the Hibs player remonstrates with ref Craig Thomson before heading up the tunnel for stitches on the cut. Stokes gesticulates that he was merely using his arms to propel himself into the air; Doherty thinks it was deliberate.

1545 From Kieran Devlin on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "Was worried about complacency today. Should have had more faith in this rejuvenated team under Lennon. Great display."

1544 It reminds me of the Billy Connolly line:"The more you know, the less the better."

1542 We'll leave this to you brainy lot out there to figure out... Hmm... Iain Weir on Twitter: "#bbcsportsound Interesting stat: Hibernian haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last 9 home defeats."

1540 Joe Ledley surges into the Hibs half, looking over his shoulder every second or so like a shoplifter on the run. But the hosts' security is absent, allowing the Welsh midfielder to have a pop at goal. Graham Stack is at full stretch as the ball sails a few feet over the bar.

1538 Griffiths almost pulls off a Zidane-style turn on the right wing but his second pirouette is completed "sans ball".

1536 Hibs' Leigh Griffiths is booked for a stamp on Scott Brown's boot.

1535 Celtic have a weak claim for a penalty turned down when Anthony Stokes went down in the box under a challenge.

1534 From Matthew Reilly on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "You just can't give Celtic that kind of space and hope for the best #hibernian."

1532 Isaiah Osbourne crosses for David Wotherspoon but the Scotland Under-21 star opens his foot up too much and slices wide. Hibs pick up the ball and it's Osbourne in the penalty box to head narrowly wide of Fraser Forster's right-hand post.

1530 Gambian international full-back Pa Saikou Kujabi is crowded out down the left flank as Hibs try to get back in to this match.

1529 BBC Radio Scotland pundit and Motherwell defender Stephen Craigan: "If it goes to 3-0, it is game, set and match for Celtic."

1528 Charlie Mulgrew is fit enough to return to the action.

1527 BBC Radio Scotland pundit Murdo MacLeod: "I felt they were very well matched with a good midfield scrap but with not too many chances, but Celtic have that quality in front of goal and this could go to four or five this afternoon."

1525 Charlie Mulgrew lands awkwardly, having gone for a high ball in midfield, and is given some attention by the Celtic physio.

1524 But almost straight away, Adam Matthews makes a meal of a long ball over the top of the Celtic defence, chesting the ball into the path of Lewis Stevenson, whose shot is tame.

1523 That, one suspects, is how you win football matches and a league title.

1522 In a swift move, Anthony Stokes picks up the ball on the left wing and rushes at goal. He carves Hibs open with his pass for Gary Hooper and the Englishman hits a low right-foot shot past Graham Stack for his 20th goal of the season.

1521 GOAL! Hibernian 0-2 Celtic (Hooper)

1518 From a central position, Hibs striker Leigh Griffiths leans back and lofts his free-kick high over the bar from 25 yards.

1517 BBC Radio Scotland pundit and Motherwell defender Stephen Craigan: "It just goes to show that for all your hard work in midfield or attack, if you can't defend a set-piece, you are going to pay the price."

1515 Charlie Mulgrew's in-swinging corner is headed down and into the net by former Hibee Anthony Stokes for the opener. That's his eighth goal against his former club in their last 10 meetings.

1515 GOAL! Hibernian 0-1 Celtic (Stokes)

1514 Paul Hanlon heads the ball clear for a Celtic corner.

1513 Hmm, this looks an interesting match-up between "The Pitbull" Claros and Scott Brown. Both look lively in their play and tenacious in the tackle.

1512 There's a much better pace to this game than the one at Pittodrie earlier this afternoon. Maybe it's their relative league positions - Hibs and Celtic are desperate for a win here.

1510 Leigh Griffiths wins a throw-in down the right wing as Hibs enjoy some possession.

1509 BBC Scotland football pundit Stephen Craigan: "I think [Jorge] Claros is the main man for Hibs."

1507 Thomas Rogne fouls Eoin Doyle by nudging him in the back asthey battle to win a header and Hibs win a free-kick. The hosts have settled down after that early scare.

1506 From Kevin Walker on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "@OfficialNeil Will have #Celtic in a professional mind set. No let up despite a 14 point advantage."

1505 Grant O'Donnell by text on 80295: "I'm sitting in a hotel at a wedding show instead of watching the game! Keep me updated please!"Hilarious!

1504 Hibs survive the Celtic corner and force one of their own.

1502 "Stacky" just managed to change direction in time to stick his leg out to hit the ball off the line.

1501 Within seconds Anthony Stokes whips in a cross for Gary Hooper and his attempted flick almost catches out Hibs goalkeeper Graham Stack.

1500 Celtic kick off the game.

1458 The 4,000 travelling fans are in jovial mood, with party hats and balloons prominent. They sense the title will soon be theirs.

1455 Celtic are in their black and yellow strips.

1453 Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon: "We are more confident in our performances and we've just got to take that forward. The pitches are lively at the moment, but Celtic are on a high and we're fighting for our lives, so hopefully it will be a better game."

1449 Thomas Rogne returns from a calf injury for Celtic at Easter Road. The Norwegian defender replaces Daniel Majstorovic while striker Anthony Stokes comes in for Georgios Samaras to partner Gary Hooper.

1448 Striker Leigh Griffiths and defenders Paul Hanlon and James McPake return from suspension for Hibs as Sean O'Hanlon, George Francomb and Garry O'Connor drop to the bench.

Stack, Doherty, McPake, Hanlon, Kujabi, Claros, Osbourne, Stevenson, Wotherspoon, Griffiths, Doyle. Subs: Brown, O'Hanlon, O'Connor, Scott, Sproule, O'Donovan, Francomb.

1444 Celtic manager Neil Lennon: "The real incentive is to keep the run going. I haven't noticed any complacency. If I do see any, the players will be sitting beside me very quickly."

1442 OK, now for a change of venue and, hopefully, in level of excitement. We head south to Edinburgh for Hibs v Celtic.

1441 Aberdeen defender Russell Anderson on BBC Radio Scotland: "As the home side, we really need to do more to take the game to teams."

1439 There is no point in dressing that match up - both can do MUCH better. There was so little to entertain the fans.

1438 FULL-TIME Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

1437 Lee Croft's cross falls behind the Saints attackers. The Perth men have another chance when Jody Morris shows his team-mate how to deliver a ball into the box. However, Marcus Haber's header goes wide.

1436 We have moved into two minutes of injury-time. It's nearly over, folks. I promise.

1435 From Dave Clements on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "St Johnstone's long ball game is doing them no favours. Maybe have more luck with Haber on?"

1433 The Dons fans were preparing to do the Cha-Cha Chalali there when the Algerian international's hooked shot momentarily threatened the visitors' goal. Alas, it didn't.

1431 Icelander Kari Arnason almost breaks the deadlock with a right-foot shot that swerves just wide of Alan Mannus's post. The Dons are giving the Saints keeper something to do at last.

1430 The attendance at Pittodrie is 6,936. They really, really deserve a goal. This has been turgid.

1428 Kari Arnason draws a stumbling but necessary save from Alan Mannus in the Saints goal with a shot from the edge of the box.

1426 Canadian striker Marcus Haber replaces the ineffective Cillian Sheridan. The big Irish forward was as peripheral as a ring road in this match.

1425 Danny Uchechi does well down the right and fires a cross into the box where the ball pings around before Darren Mackie smacks the ball wide.

1423 Veteran defender Callum Davidson takes no chances, heading a searching ball into the St Johnstone defence out for a throw-in.

1421 Aberdeen manager Craig Brown makes an attack-minded substitution - Mitch Megginson off, Mohamed Chalali on.

1420 If the game ends in a draw, St Johnstone will stay in fifth place, albeit with a game in hand over fourth-placed Hearts, while Aberdeen will remain in eighth spot.

1418 Aberdeen defender Russell Anderson on BBC Radio Scotland: "We can't get any sort of pressure on St Johnstone for more than a couple of seconds."

1416 Fraser Fyvie's looping corner is headed clear by the St Johnstone defence.

1414 A reply by text on 80295 from Rob in Aberdeen: "Re 1351. There are 2. I see Rob Maclean each year at our Rob meetup. He's a top bloke. From Rob."You may be Rob, Rob, but our Rob is (Heart-th)Rob.

1413 Fraser Fyvie is thwarted by David McCracken on the left side of the box, his attempted Thierry Henry-style curling shot bouncing off the St Johnstone defender.

1411 Lee Croft gets on the ball down the right wing and plays the ball in-field for Dave MacKay whose cross is too low to evade the Dons defence.

1409 Striker Darren Mackie prepares to come on for Aberdeen.

1408 Those are Millar's final contributions to the Saints' cause this afternoon as the right-midfielder is replaced by Lee Croft.

1407 And it's Millar at the other end who clears the danger in a busy St Johnstone penalty box.

1405 St Johnstone's Chris Millar smacks a left-foot shot at goal from 12 yards, taking the ball off the toe of Fran Sandaza. The Dons defender Mark Reynolds makes a vital block.

1403 Cillian Sheridan plays the ball to Francisco Sandaza, who shoots over the Aberdeen bar from 16 yards.

1401 BBC Radio Scotland pundit Billy Dodds: "It is a bit like Rangers trying to get through Kilmarnock yesterday. It's just not happening for Fyvie and Megginson. Like Davis and Aluko, you expect better."

1359 Frazer Wright is booked for a reckless lunge at Danny Uchechi. Don't get me wrong, diving in on this harsh surface takes a brave man, but if Wright had made contact there it could have been a nasty injury for the Dons sub.

1356 Scott Vernon meets Jason Brown's meaty kick-out from the Dons penalty box to flick the ball on. Fraser Fyvie gets on the ball but cannot penetrate the yellow-shirted defence.

1354 Chris Millar shows a nice touch to get clear in the Dons box but the ball runs away from him and Jason Brown gathers.

1353 Craig Brown shields his eyes (from the sun, not the wayward passing) as Mitch Megginson leaps well to try to direct a header at goal. He was well marked there, though, by the Saints defence.

1351 Talking of Rob Maclean, he has just walked in to the office. There must be another Rob in Scotland.

1350 The Dons begin the second 45, like flipping over an old single on your record player. Younger web visitors may need to ask their aunts and uncles to describe what that is.

1349 From Rob in Aberdeen by text on 80295: "I'm rather regretting betting on both teams to score! What a dull match, riddled with slack concession of possession." (I'm just hoping that's not from Rob Maclean...)

1348 Fellow pundit Billy Dodds is not so sure, though. He's struggling to see a goal in the next 45 minutes but hopes to be proved wrong.

1346 Aberdeen defender Russell Anderson on BBC Radio Scotland: "Hopefully if we do get one goal it will open up and we'll get a decent game."

1343 Neil Lennon and his Celtic team are at Easter Road for their game against Hibernian. The kick-off there is 1500 GMT.

1341 If telly is your thing, then Sportscene is on air at 2200 GMT on BBC Two Scotland. Rob Maclean presents the highlights of all the weekend action and has former Hibs boss Mixu Paatelainen for company in the studio.

1338 The highlights of yesterday's SPL matches will be online on the BBC Sport website at 1800 GMT. Today's best bits hit the world wide web around 2300 GMT.

1337 "#platoon"! Dougie, that is superb. I'm roaring at that one!

1336 From Dougie Kinnear on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "Fran Sandaza realises it's Oscar season and goes down elaborately to get Jack booked! #bbcsportsound #aberdeenfc #platoon"

1334 HALF-TIME Aberdeen 0-0 St Johnstone

1333 Bordering on an act of mercy, George Salmond puts his whistle to his lips and peeps to end the stalemate.

1331 Hughes trudges off. Let's hope he makes a swift return to the Dons team. Danny Uchechi, the sub, bursts on to the pitch full of energy, green boots a-flashing.

1330 Bad news for said Mr Hughes - he is indicating to the bench that his hamstring has gone. I'm fond of Hughes as a player but I reckon Stan Laurel had sturdier legs on him than the Dons midfielder.

1328 Stephen Hughes shows lovely technique and a sharp mind to clip a reverse ball through for Scott Vernon in the inside-right channel. The Dons striker volleys the ball a few feet over the Saints' crossbar.

1326 Ah, and then Fran Sandaza (who else?) twists and turns through the red rows of Dons defenders and arrows a low shot at goal. Keeper Jason Brown is relieved that, although the ball squirms under his body, it does not cross the line.

1324 We've had that half-chance for Fran Sandaza from Mark Reynolds' poor pass and a very weak effort early from Scott Vernon for Aberdeen. And Fraser Fyvie's header wide too. Otherwise, not a lot.

1322 Here's a thing (which suggests the football is not exactly riveting): EXACTLY half the pitch is in shadow and half is in glorious winter sunshine. Great, now give us a goal!

1320 Aberdeen are as hesitant as a chick contemplating fleeing the nest for the first time. Ryan Jack dithers and when he eve-e-entually passes to Stephen Hughes the former Norwich midfielder is already heavily marked and St Johnstone nick in to emerge with the ball.

1318 Ah, dear. Aberdeen's Ryan Jack's name is taken by referee George Salmond for hooking the legs of Fran Sandaza as the Spanish striker raced free at goal.

1316 At the other end, a stinking error by Aberdeen defender Mark Reynolds gifts Fran Sandaza the ball 25 yards from goal. Jason Brown gathers the shot at the second attempt.

1315 Kari Arnason breenges in to dispossess Jody Morris and start an attack for the Reds, which soon peters out on the edge of the Saints box.

1314 We're 26 minutes in and awaiting the first goal.

1312 Dons goalie Jason Brown clutches Liam Craig's over-hit free-kick as a wall of players run towards him.

1310 Stephen Hughes wins a free-kick for Aberdeen. His delivery is lethargic but Saints defender Dave MacKay is not - he heads the ball back to his goalkeeper. I can almost hear Craig Brown tutting from here in Pacific Quay in Glasgow.

1309 From our own Allan Preston on his Facebook page: "Fran Sandaza is Rocky Balboa!!!"

1306 Cillian Sheridan and Chris Millar play a one-two down the right and win a Saints corner. Rory McArdle leaps like a showy seal to head clear and concede a corner on the opposite side of the pitch.

1305 From Andy by text on 80295: "Greg Mitchell on the bench for St Johnstone at just 16. Brought up in Inverurie near Aberdeen and a good mate! Coys!"(That'll be "Come on ye Saints!")

1303 I am keeping an envious eye on fitness fanatic and top guy Chris Millar on the right side of midfield for St Johnstone. I was chatting to him in a Gourock cafe the other day where I was devouring a fine range of pastries, while he, being a true pro, sipped on a non-fattening, non-alcoholic beverage. I have never before felt so unfit merely standing beside someone.

1301 Aberdeen's Fraser Fyvie attacks a cross from the right by Ryan Jack, positions his body rather like classic Paul Scholes...and just misses Alan Mannus's right-hand post. That was close!

1300 Baby-faced assassin Mitch Megginson slips the Saints defence but seems to panic with the goal in his sights and screws his shot well wide.

1258 Stephen Hughes controls the ball in the centre of the Dons half and sprays the ball out to Ryan Jack on the right flank. Aberdeen edge forward...

1256 Scott Vernon turns Saints' David McCracken near the centre circle and hares at goal. Whether he ran out of puff or felt he was about to be tackled we will never know: what is certain is that his shot from 18 yards was as soft as a wet sponge.

1255 From Mark in Salcoats by text on 80295: "C'mon the Dons! Win today and we are three points from fourth, not bad considering we were rock bottom at Christmas!"

1254 Aberdeen defender Russell Anderson on BBC Radio Scotland: "St Johnstone have started the game better. We need to get hold of the ball."

1253 Jason Brown saves from the Fran Sandaza, who was correctly ruled offside. That chance stemmed from a bit of slackness in the Dons defence.

1251 Rory McArdle is playing at left-back for Aberdeen. I remember Craig Brown playing right-footed Christian Dailly in that position. Maybe the manager thinks professional players should be able to kick the ball with both feet (though not at once) - a radical thought, surely?

1249 St Johnstone have enjoyed three wins and a draw in their last four appearances at Pittodrie, reports BBC Scotland commentator Scott Davie.

1248 St Johnstone, in yellow and blue, kick off the match.

1247 Francisco Sandaza and Cillian Sheridan are the attacking pairing chosen by Steve Lomas for the Saints. They can score goals, those two. The feeling in the office here in Glasgow, though, is that this could end goalless! Let's hope not.

1244 It's sunny but freezing in Aberdeen - ideal weather for thermal bikinis.

1243 From Dougie Kinnear on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "A cauld day at Pittodrie will be warmed up nicely by three points against inconsistent St Johnstone! 2-0 The Dons the prediction."

1241 Yep, there is a wealth of attacking options for Craig Brown and Archie Knox -Mackie, Fallon, Chalali, Magennis and Uchechi.

1239 From Dave Clements on Twitter using #bbcsportsound: "Am I right in thinking Aberdeen have five strikers on the bench?"

1238 Seven minutes until the teams lock horns at Pittodrie.

1236 Let's be hearing your thoughts on the games today. My smile will be as wide as Barry Lavety's waistline if you could text us on 80295 or tweet using the hashtag #bbcsportsound.

1234 As for the Super Saintees - Off the Ball's Saints nut Stuart Cosgrove is within hitting range - defender Callum Davidson returns after missing the midweek Scottish Cup defeat to Hearts in place of the injured Steven Anderson. Full-back David Mackay is preferred to Alan Maybury as Steve Lomas's team try to end a run of four games without a win.

1231 So, to those team line-ups... Aberdeen midfielder Gavin Rae makes his Dons debut. Ryan Jack also returns to the starting line-up after being left out of the midweek Scottish Cup victory over Queen of the South due to disciplinary reasons.

French defender Youl Mawene and New Zealand international Rory Fallon drop to the bench for the Dons, who go into the match on the back of an impressive run of only one defeat in 13 matches.

1230 Well, you'll have sussed by now that our system for publishing the live text commentaries is still in its sick bed - but worry not, it is being given the finest care by the BBC techies and should return soon. Therefore, please refresh this page to receive my latest keyboard hammerings. There is no automatic refresh function.

1228 The referee at Pittodrie is George Salmond, no relation to Scotland's First Minister, as far as I know.


Mannus, MacKay, McCracken, Wright, Callum Davidson, Millar, Morris, Murray Davidson, Craig, Sheridan, Sandaza. Subs: Enckelman, Croft, Maybury, Haber, Oyenuga, Mitchell, Keatings.


Brown, Jack, McArdle, Reynolds, Considine, Fyvie, Arnason, Rae, Hughes, Vernon, Megginson. Subs: Langfield, Mawene, Mackie, Fallon, Chalali, Magennis, Uchechi.

1225 Good afternoon to you all. Our first port of call is Aberdeen where Craig Brown's men take on St Johnstone in the Scottish Premier League. The kick-off at Pittodrie is at 1245 GMT. Then it's to the port of Leith for Hibernian's match against runaway leaders Celtic.
