  1. Post update

    Right that's enough from me. Celtic, Partick Thistle, Aberdeen, Hamilton and Dundee United all picked up maximum points, with the Jags in rampant form at Firhill.

    It's nice to see Craig Gordon back. The Celtic keeper was playing his first competitive match in over two years and will be delighted with a clean sheet.

    The season is now in full swing, so join us for more of the same at the weekend...

  2. Post update

    Dundee manager Paul Hartley: "We probably had the better chances in the second half but this is always a tough venue and I'm pleased with a point. When you are away from home you need to be solid and the players worked really hard. There could have been a penalty for handball at the end but we're not going to moan too much."

  3. Post update

    ICT boss John Hughes:"They sat in and tried to hit us on the counter. We were forcing the play and had a couple of chances to win but we couldn't find that bit of imagination to unlock the door. We need to be clever enough and patient enough to break teams down."

  4. Post update

    Kilmarnock boss Allan Johnston: "I'm hoping to bring in a new striker tomorrow and hopefully that will give us a different dimension.

    "The goal right before half-time probably killed us a little bit. There wasn't much between the teams. We just needed that bit of composure in front of goal."

  5. Post update

    Ryan Jack celebrates putting Aberdeen 2-0 up at Kilmarnock

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes: "I thought we were very hard working and limited them to very few chances, if anything.

    "We were too reluctant to shoot in good areas but we know we have the quality to change games.

    "Any win away from home is good and I still think there is a lot more to come."

  6. Post update

    Motherwell boss Stuart McCall: "I take a lot of positives out of the performance and I think we merited a point in a tough encounter. I set them out to be hard to beat and to a man they did me proud. We've got players to come back and new faces to come in so that will make the group stronger."

  7. Post update

    Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara: "Motherwell dug in but we kept going and I thought we deserved the win. It was a wonderful strike and that will do Mario's confidence wonders. You could see what he will bring to the team."

  8. Post update

    "That's a dive. That's embarrassing," the reaction from BBC Scotland's Tom English to seeing replays of the penalty awarded to Celtic's Dirk Boerrigter.

  9. Post update

    Celtic were 3-0 winners at St Johnstone

    Celtic striker Anthony Stokes: "After we scored the first goal we broke them down and it was comfortable from then.

    "The manager wants us to press hard and win the ball as high up the park as possible.

    "I think tonight will be good for the confidence and good for the group."

  10. Post update

    Ross County manager Derek Adams: "I'm not going to make any excuses, Partick Thistle were the better side and deserved to win. We didn't defend as a team but I don't want to take anything away from Partick Thistle who played very well."

  11. Post update

    Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald: "It was a top class performance. We couldn't have asked for a better start. I just asked them to be relaxed since they were so desperate to get out there, get the ball down and play."

  12. Post update

    St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright: "I thought we were well on top when we gave away the goal. We were in the ascendancy then we should get a penalty to get back in it - but we don't. Then they get a penalty which wasn't and we have a man sent off. Celtic didn't start to cut us open until we were down to 10 men."

  13. Post update

    Hamilton player-manager Alex Neil: "We're delighted with how we performed. We didn't move the ball well enough against Inverness and that was our downfall, so it was nice to bounce back. We have a young squad but we can certainly compete at this level. We should have scored more tonight. It's an important win but I don't target any particular fixtures."

  14. Post update

    St Mirren boss Tommy Craig: "We were poor. We didn't get anywhere near the levels we had on Saturday. We have lacked consistency at St Mirren for some time. Hamilton were first to the ball in the early stages and that set the tone."

  15. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila after the 3-0 win at McDiarmid Park: "It was a first game and there were some nerves. Second half, we were much better but there is a long way to go."

    On the contentious penalty decisions... "Over 38 matches it's going to be even-Steven, refs do good things and they make mistakes."

  16. #bbcsportscot

    BBC Scotland's Tom English on Twitter: "Refs looking for more money in Scotland. John Beaton might want to consider a refund after this St Johnstone v Celtic game."

    Our Tom reckons Mr Beaton is a bit "card happy" and had a couple of shockers at McDiarmid Park, denying Saints a penalty and awarding one to Celtic.

  22. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 4-0 Ross County (O'Donnell)

    Thistle are rampant. Stephen O'Donnell ventures forward and slams the ball past Antonio Reguero. Soon after the keeper saves with a foot to deny Ryan Stevenson, without knowing too much about the shot.

  23. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-3 Celtic

    Callum McGregor connects with a much better shot than the one he scored with moments ago but Alan Mannus produces a good save to partially make up for his blunder.

  24. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-2 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen's Nicky Low sends Jonny Hayes through on goal but the Irishman isn't able to take the opportunity to slot it by Craig Samson.

  25. TEXT 80295

    Anonymous: "For the second time tonight Celtic are aided by poor referring! A blatant dive well after the tiniest of grazes. And that's from a Dons fan."

    Well, St Johnstone appear determined to lose this one, having gifted Celtic two other goals.

  26. GOAL

    St Johnstone 0-3 Celtic (McGregor)

    Suddenly Celtic are on Easy Street as Nir Bitton picks out Callum McGregor and the forward's low shot goes through the legs of an opponent before squirming right through the gloves of Saints keeper Alan Mannus. File under howler...

  27. GOAL

    Dundee United 1-0 Motherwell (Bilate)

    Dundee United substitute Mario Bilate picks up the ball 25 yards out, sets himself and then thunders the ball past Dan Twardzik.

  28. Post update

    Dundee United 0-0 Motherwell

    A rare opening at Tannadice as Gary Mackay-Steven centres for Ryan Dow but the United midfielder gets under the ball and scoops it over.

  29. Post update

    Inverness CT 0-0 Dundee

    A Dundee free-kick confuses the home defence and presents Peter MacDonald with a great chance to open the scoring but the substitute striker fires over from seven yards.

  30. GOAL

    St Johnstone 0-2 Celtic (Biton)

    Dave Mackay trudges off without too much fuss, although, having seen TV replays, it looks a very soft award. Nir Bitton is coolness personified as he converts from the spot.

  31. PENALTY

    St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    Derk Boerrigter collapses after mild contact with Dave Mackay and referee John Beaton points to the spot before showing the Saints captain a red card.

  32. Post update

    St Mirren 0-2 Hamilton

    St Mirren continue to live dangerously as Accies striker Mikael Antoine-Curier fluffs his lines again from two successive crosses.

  33. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 3-0 Ross County (Fraser)

    Ryan Stevenson's clever back heel sets off a sweeping Partick Thistle move that ends with Gary Fraser firing home.

    Inverness CT 0-0 Dundee

    Gary Warren is presented with a chance from a corner but heads wide of the Dundee goal.

  35. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 0-2 Aberdeen (Jack)

    Niall McGinn, on the right-hand-side, picks out Ryan Jack's run into the Kilmarnock box and the Scotland under-21 midfielder bullets a header past Craig Samson to make the three points seem more secure for Derek McInnes's men.

  36. PENALTY APPEAL

    St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    St Johnstone captain Dave Mackay claims he is fouled in the box by Virgil van Dijk's clumsy challenge but referee John Beaton is unmoved by the defender's sprawl.

  37. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Dundee United 0-0 Motherwell

    Motherwell have the ball in the net but Lee Erwin is flagged offside at Tannadice.

  38. Post update

    St Mirren 0-2 Hamilton

    Ali Crawford, looking for his hat-trick, finds space on the edge of the penalty box after a quick counter-attack but his shot is straight at keeper Marian Kello.

  39. TEXT 80295

    Anonymous: "C'mon Dundee, 3 points required tonight, top six is a must this season."

    Please remember to add your name to text messages, we do like to credit you!

  40. TEXT 80295

    Anonymous: "Two matches in and I already have the rosary beads out! From a worried St Mirren fan."

  41. PENALTY APPEAL

    Dundee United 0-0 Motherwell

    Nadir Ciftci works the space to get in a shot and then claims in vain that a Motherwell hand has blocked it.

  42. GREAT SAVE!

    Partick Thistle 2-0 Ross County

    Jake Jervis must think he's reduced deficit for County after rifling in a shot from inside the six-yard box but keeper Scott Fox produces a wonderful reflex stop.

  43. Post update

    Inverness CT 0-0 Dundee

    Dundee's Gary Harkins (left) and Greg Tansey battle for possession

    BBC Sportsound pundit Allan Preston is unusually quiet. It can't be much of a game in the Highland capital.

  44. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-1 Aberdeen

    Kilmarnock remain lively at Rugby Park with Josh Magennis and Yope Obadeyi linking well up front... don't write off Allan Johnston's men yet.

  45. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic

    After a Virgil van Dijk free-kick is charged down by the defensive wall the ball is worked back in to Callum McGregor and the Celtic forward pokes a first-time effort inches wide from 15 yards.

  46. GOAL

    St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic (Stokes)

    A disaster for Saints defender Steven Anderson who dwells on the ball and concedes possession following Kris Commons' sliding challenge. Anthony Stokes picks up the scraps, rounds goalkeeper Alan Mannus and rolls the ball into the net.

  47. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 2-0 Ross County (Frempah og)

    Stephen O'Donnell races forward and hammers the ball across the face of goal. It takes a wicked deflection off defender Ben Frempah and ends up in the net.

  48. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    Saints are knocking on the door. Lee Croft races away on the right and centres for Steven MacLean but the ball is too far ahead of him. While the striker shows his disgust, Michael O'Halloran retrieves and fires in a low ball that MacLean diverts just wide after his mini tantrum.

  49. GOAL

    St Mirren 0-2 Hamilton (McAusland)

    Ziggy Gordon flies down the right-hand side and his cross misses Darian MacKinnon but falls to Ali Crawford, whose shot takes a big deflection off Marc McAusland and finds the top corner!

  50. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton

    Hamilton Accies' on-loan Wigan player Danny Redmond's wonderful cross finds Mikael Antoine-Curier but the big Guadelope international makes a hash of his side-foot towards goal.

  51. Post update

    Dundee United 0-0 Motherwell

    Nadir Ciftci tries to take the game by the scruff of the neck with a shot but gets his bearings all wrong and Motherwell can rest easy.

  52. Post update

    Partick Thistle 1-0 Ross County

    It's still one-way traffic at Firhill as Kallum Higginbotham swings in a cross for Ryan Stevenson to nod narrowly wide.

  53. #bbcsportscot

    Michael Fraser on Twitter: "Worst Celtic squad in my 22 years. Would not be surprised if Aberdeen pip us to the title this season. Heard it here...first? #bbcsportscot"

    Come on Michael, the Premiership season is only 45 minutes old for your team...

  54. KICK-OFF

    Most of the games are back up and running again, although the game at Inverness is a good bit behind the others.

  55. Post update

    Dundee United 0-0 Motherwell

    Craig Reid and Stuart Armstrong

    Still no goals at Tannadice. Motherwell went close with an early Josh Law shot which struck the crossbar but it's been all quiet since.

  56. Post update

    Partick Thistle 1-0 Ross County

    Partick Thistle celebrate Stuart Bannigan's opening goal

    Partick Thistle have been in total control at Firhill but only have Stuart Bannigan's goal to show for their dominance.

  57. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    Celtic boss Ronny Deila was very animated during the first 45 minutes at McDiarmid Park, regularly throwing the ball back into play and urging his men on. However, several of his players look distinctly lacklustre and the St Johnstone defence has rarely been troubled.

  58. HALF-TIME

    Dundee Utd 0-0 Motherwell

    Inverness CT 0-0 Dundee

    Kilmarnock 0-1 Aberdeen (Pawlett)

    Partick Thistle 1-0 Ross County (Bannigan)

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton (Crawford)

  59. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Partick Thistle 1-0 Ross County

    County may have played second fiddle for much of the first half but Graham Carey almost levels when his shot rattles the Thistle crossbar.

  60. Post update

    Inverness CT 0-0 Dundee

    With half-time imminent, Caley Thistle continue to look the more threatening in the Highlands with Greg Tansey having a shot blocked and Billy McKay drawing a save from Kyle Letheren.

  61. #bbcsportscot

    Thistle Stats on Twitter: "Stuart Bannigan scores his first competitive Thistle goal since 15th December 2012."

  62. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 0-1 Aberdeen (Pawlett)

    A quick counter-attack results in Aberdeen taking the lead in emphatic style... Jonny Hayes, back from suspension, finds the highly-rated Peter Pawlett who thumps it in off the crossbar from an angle.

  63. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    St Johnstone try to take a free-kick but play is brought back. However, Steven MacLean runs on and batters the ball at goalkeeper Craig Gordon, much to the chagrin of the Celtic players. A melee ensues but is soon calmed down. Where is that old handbags graphic?

  64. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Aberdeen

    Out of nothing, Adam Rooney pings in a shot to check if Killie goalkeeper Craig Samson is alert. He was, and got down well to save.

  65. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton

    BBC Sportsound pundit Derek Ferguson: "Accies are on the back foot now as Kenny McLean begins to dominate in central midfield for St Mirren."

  66. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    Maribor assistant coach Sasa Gajser is an interested spectator in the crowd ahead of next week's Champions League play-off with Celtic. He might be feeling quite relaxed since the visitors have not really got going.

  67. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 1-0 Ross County (Bannigan)

    Kallum Higginbotham plays in Stuart Bannigan to sweep the ball home and give Thistle a deserved lead. Could it be a home win at the first attempt this season?

  68. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Ross County

    Having been on the ropes for so long, Ross County finally pose a threat as Jake Jervis bustles forward to shoot wide.

  69. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton

    Hamilton Accies player-manager Alex Neil might also have to leave the action as he seems to be struggling with a groin strain. That might explain why he is extremely late with a lunge at an opponent. The St Mirren players are furious that he has escaped with just a word in his ear from the referee.

  70. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    Anthony Stokes lines up a free kick from 22 yards and his curling effort whizzes narrowly wide, with Saints keeper Alan Mannus at full stretch.

  71. Post update

    Inverness CT 0-0 Dundee

    A long-range effort from Caley Thistle midfielder Ross Draper flies over the crossbar.

  72. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton

    St Mirren's Gregg Wylde is forced off due to injury, with former Hibee Ross Caldwell preparing to replace him. The winger had been the Buddies brightest player, according to BBC Sportsound's Derek Ferguson.

  73. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton

    Ali Crawford and Grant Gillespie

    Ali Crawford (left) celebrates his opening goal for Hamilton with Grant Gillespie. A smart change strip for the Accies...

  74. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Ross County

    Partick Thistle continue to tear open the visiting defence but cannot break the deadlock. Does that sound familiar, Jags fans?

  75. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Aberdeen

    Niall McGinn and Chris Chantler

    Niall McGinn holds off Kilmarnock new boy Chris Chantler at Rugby Park.

  76. Post update

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton

    Adam Brown, making his Buddies debut, is denied by a Martin Canning clearance near his goal-line. Hamilton Accies then look to make it 2-0 as Grant Gillespie plays in Dougie Imrie, only for Saints defender Marc McAusland to snuff out the threat.

  77. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Aberdeen

    So close to an opener against the run of play for Aberdeen. Niall McGinn picks it up 35-yards out on the right-hand side, bursts towards goal and skelps a shot off Craig Samson's crossbar.

  78. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Ross County

    Kallum Higginbotham is in the thick of the action tonight. This time the Jags forward plays a one-two and fires narrowly past the post. Moments later, Gary Fraser smacks the ball against the frame of the County goal.

  79. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon shows no sign of rustiness as he gets down smartly to push away a fierce shot from Steven MacLean.

  80. GOAL

    St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton (Crawford)

    Ali Crawford scores a stunning first league goal of the season at St Mirren Park. The winger strikes it from 20 yards after a neat passing move to put Alex Neil's side in front away from home.

  81. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Ross County

    Partick Thistle forward Kallum Higginbotham is booked for diving after racing in on goalkeeper Antonio Reguero. BBC Sportsound's Chick Young was screaming for a penalty but his eyesight is not what is was...

    The referee at Firhill is Andrew Dallas, son of Hugh.

  82. Post update

    St Mirren 0-0 Hamilton

    BBC Scotland pundit Derek Ferguson reckons Hamilton Accies are looking a lot tighter at the back in this game, compared to their opening day loss to Inverness Caley Thistle.

  83. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    Celtic playmaker Kris Commons slips a pass inside the full-back to James Forrest who dips a shoulder to make room for a shot but drags his effort wide of the target.

  84. Post update

    Inverness CT 0-0 Dundee

    No sign of a goal so far at the Caledonian Stadium but both sides spraying the ball about with confidence. The bad news for Dundee is that captain Kevin Thomson has had to hobble off with an injury.

  85. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen keeper Jamie Langfield makes two good saves in quick succession to deny former team-mate Josh Magennis.

  86. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Celtic

    Celtic are having the better of the opening exchanges in Perth, with Kris Commons and Emilio Izaguirre looking lively, but we're yet to see a clear attempt on goal.

  87. Post update

    BBC Sportsound pundits Billy Dodds and Derek Ferguson are discussing the shade of green of Kilmarnock's new surface. Derek thinks it's a little dull and asks if you get a colour chart when picking the astroturf. A "November green", is the verdict from Dodds at Rugby Park.

  88. Dundee United 0-0 Motherwell

    Radoslaw Cierzniak had a few unsure moment with crosses at the weekend and the Dundee United goalkeeper has another tonight when he flaps at a cross but he escapes on this occasion.

  89. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Aberdeen

    Rory McKenzie has been lively for Kilmarnock in the opening exchanges, firing off a couple of shots, but nothing to test Jamie Langfield.

  90. Post update

    St Mirren 0-0 Hamilton

    A 30-yard shot from St Mirren's Kenny McLean signals the Buddies' intent in Paisley versus Hamilton Accies - remember, he signed a new two-year contract with Saints over the summer.

  91. KICK-OFF

    Most of the games are underway... Hold on to your hats! I can sense goals and lots of them...

  92. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Tanandice: "Dundee United will look to build on their impressive opening day victory over Aberdeen, when they were solid at the back and bold on the counter. Can a depleted Motherwell contain their hosts at Tannadice? In four encounters last season, United won three and the other was drawn. Dow, Armstrong, Mackay-Steven and Ciftci will all be looking to remind us that there was more to United last season than the promise of Ryan Gauld and Andrew Robertson."

    Scott in Edinburgh, an Accies fan: "These are the games we need to take points from if we are to stand a chance of staying up. Our club ethos is a good one but one wonders if it'll sustain us through a season in the top flight... In Alex we trust. G'wan the Accies."

  95. Post update

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "Any time you have a disappointed result, like we did on Sunday, everybody's keen to get a response. Hopefully we see that. We move on quickly to this one.

    "I watched Kilmarnock on Saturday and I think Allan's made some decent signings. They look a capable side this year."

  96. Post update

    St Mirren played some nice stuff in their 1-0 loss at Motherwell but were blunt in attack without injured striker Steven Thompson.

    Jim Goodwin may be part of the coaching set-up now but that doesn't appear to altered his approach and he is missing tonight after getting his marching orders at Fir Park.

    I believe "wake-up call" is the term for Hamilton's home defeat at the weekend. The Accies have a small squad and will need influential midfielder Tony Andreu to make a hasty return to fitness.

  97. Post update

    A big cheer goes up from the St Johnstone fans as chairman Steve Brown brings out the Scottish Cup for a wee reminder of last season's success.

  98. Post update

    St Johnstone may have sold star striker Stevie May but they have done some excellent business in tying down manager Tommy Wright to a new deal.

    The home side are always very well organised and will be buoyed by a good win in Dingwall.

    Celtic may have been deflated after their mauling from Legia Warsaw but spirits are sure to have been lifted by their Champions League reprieve.

    Ronny Deila will get his first taste of domestic action and the new manager needs a swift tonic before next week's meeting with Maribor.

    St Johnstone and Celtic shared six goals the last time they met at McDiarmid Park, so let's hope for another goal rush in Perth.

  100. Post update

    Partick Thistle fans had to wait a long, long time for a home win last term. It was February before the Firhill faithful could celebrate on their own patch.

    Attacking full-back Aaron Taylor-Sinclair has gone but manager Alan Archibald has retained much of his squad, while Ryan Stevenson should beef up an attack that was guilty of not putting teams away when on top.

    Ross County have drafted in another collection of new faces from around Europe and Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to St Johnstone may suggest they need time to get to know each other.

  101. Post update

    The grass at Rugby Park has been replaced by a new artificial surface. It's only just been installed so Kilmarnock won't have much of an advantage yet.

    Aberdeen, tipped by every BBC pundit for second place this season, will be smarting after their opening day skelping and fired up for this one.

    The Dons are unbeaten on their last four visits and have won four on the spin against the Ayrshire men.

  102. Post update

    New boys Dundee started with a 1-1 draw at home to Kilmarnock but can expect a tough test of their top flight credentials at Inverness tonight.

    Caley Thistle were comfortable 2-0 winners at the other newly-promoted side Hamilton on Saturday, with prolific striker Billy McKay getting off the mark.

    Both managers are keen on neat, possession-based football, so it promises to be a more cerebral affair than previous clashes between the sides, which often strayed into the blood-and-thunder category.

    Dundee United got off to a flyer at the weekend, winning 3-0 at Pittodrie. Can they build on that fantastic result at home to Motherwell, who also have three points in the bag?

    Both sides are missing key defenders through injury but managed to keep clean sheets at the weekend and United showed no signs of missing summer sales Ryan Gauld and Andrew Robertson as they dismantled the Dons with a series of lightening quick counter-attacks.

    Motherwell, runners-up in the last two campaigns, were nowhere near their best on Saturday but dug out a 1-0 victory at home to St Mirren.

  105. Post update

    Aberdeen bring back striker Adam Rooney, while veteran midfielder Barry Robson is on the bench. That might be to spare the old-timer's knees on the astroturf. Jonny Hayes is reinstated after serving a suspension but there is no return for skipper Russell Anderson, who is definitely not being risked on the plastic.

    Former Don Josh Magennis is up front for Killie.
