  1. Post update

    Right, I'll sign off now. That was a tough gig without the usual screaming, shouting and shrieking from Open All Mics to keep me awake... I mean informed.

    Thanks for your company and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Post update

    Inverness CT remain third despite losing in a five-goal thriller at Pittodrie but it means Celtic, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen all close the gap in a congested top half of the table.

    Tope Obadeyi struck twice as Killie comfortably beat Partick Thistle to record their biggest win of the season so far.

  3. Post update

    At the top, it's as you were with Dundee United and Hamilton leading the way following comfortable victories.

    St Johnstone put up a better fight in the second half at Tannadice but could not find a goal to trouble Jackie McNamara's side. The Accies ran riot at Fir Park, knocking four past Stuart McCall's beleaguered side. What's going on with the Steelmen?

  4. Post update


    Ross County are still bottom of the Premiership pile but that last-gasp goal from Darren Maatsen against Dundee gets them off the mark for the season with a most welcome three points. It takes them level with St Mirren, who lost at home to Celtic in the lunchtime kick off.

    It's a rout at Fir Park now as Ali Crawford finds the net from a tight angle, following good work from Stephen Hendrie.

    Time is running out for St Johnstone as substitute Simon Lappin fires a volley wide.

  15. Post update

    Kilmarnock 3-0 Partick Thistle

    BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park

    "Partick Thistle look like they're accepting this defeat to Kilmarnock here, having created absolutely nothing in this second half.

    One worry for them is the condition of Kallum Higginbotham, who was taken off at half-time and was seen sitting in the stand with crutches by his side."

  16. Post update

    Aberdeen 3-2 Inverness CT

    Aberdeen are starting to sit deep, allowing Inverness a lot of possession but the visitors haven't had a good glimpse of goal for a while.

  17. Post update


    Hamilton's Ali Crawford celebrates with team-mates after putting his side 2-0 up against Motherwell

    Hamilton will be 10 points clear of Lanarkshire rivals Motherwell after today's derby victory. The last time Accies were in the top flight they won five games. That tally has already been matched, barring an incredible collapse at Fir Park, where they lead 3-0.

  18. Post update

    St Mirren manager Tommy Craig

    "This is the first time that I have mentioned Stevie Thompson because I haven't thought there was much point in mentioning him.

    "But if ever there was a player missing this season and certainly today, was Stevie Thompson.

    "He would probably have got on the end of one or two crosses.

    "We are a wee bit toothless as a team in the last third and that is where we need to do much better."

  19. GOAL

    Dundee United 2-0 St Johnstone (Paton)

    Paul Paton collects a Keith Watson pass and smacks home a shot from the centre of the penalty box to the bottom right corner via the post.

  20. GOAL

    Ross County 1-1 Dundee (Clarkson)

    David Clarkson draws Dundee level with his first goal for Paul Hartley's side, finishing from the middle of the box following Martin Boyle's pass. That might have been the substitute's first touch!

  21. Post update


    Kilmarnock celebrate Tope Obadeyi's opening goal

    Kilmarnock, inspired by the craft of Alexei Eremenko, enjoy a three-goal cushion at home to Partick Thistle.

  22. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    "We have now played three matches in six days. Inside, I feel a bit irritated that we didn't have more chances and didn't play better offensively, but I know it's tough to play three games in such a short time and you have to be strong to win on a day like this. Some days, football is about hard work and getting the result."

    John Guidetti was on target twice in Celtic's 2-1 win at St Mirren.

  23. GOAL

    Motherwell 0-3 Hamilton (Antoine-Curier)

    Just as Motherwell were starting to look like they might do something, Fraser Kerr concedes a penalty with a foul on Louis Longridge and Mikael Antoine-Curier tucks it away.

  24. GOAL

    Aberdeen 3-2 Inverness CT (Hayes)

    The visitors shoot themselves in the foot again as Ross Draper sells his team short with a shocking back-pass. Dean Brill does brilliantly to save from David Goodwillie but the ball falls to Jonny Hayes for a tap-in.


    Dundee United 1-0 St Johnstone

    The visitors go close to an equaliser at Tannadice as Michael O'Halloran hits the post.

  26. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 3-0 Partick Thistle (Obadeyi)

    Tope Obadeyi gets his second of the game, drilling in at the near post from the edge of the box. Alexei Eremenko with his second assist of the game and Killie are cruising.

  27. Post update

    Motherwell 0-2 Hamilton

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Fir Park

    "After some really impressive midfield play by Tony Andreu and Ali Crawford, Mikael Antoine-Curier slices a shot high up into the air. Motherwell started brightly after the interval, but Hamilton seem unfazed."

  28. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 2-0 Partick Thistle (Pascali)

    A bullet header by Manuel Pascali puts Killie two ahead. The Italian, who's been in Ayrshire six years now, rose to convert Alexei Eremenko's corner kick.

  29. Post update

    Dundee United 1-0 St Johnstone

    Steven Anderson heads wide from a David Wotherspoon free kick as St Johnstone aim to buck up their ideas.

  30. GOAL

    Aberdeen 2-2 Inverness CT (Watkins)

    The small band of Inverness followers at Pittodrie celebrate as Marley Watkins finds himself one-on-one with Jamie Langfield and coolly flicks the ball beyond the keeper.

  31. KICK-OFF

    We're up and running again across the country...

  32. Post update

    Aberdeen's Shaun Logan (2nd from right) celebrates with team-mates after putting his side 2-1 up

    Aberdeen have responded well after falling behind at home to Inverness and there could be a few more goals at Pittodrie in the second half.

  33. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Allan Preston at Tannadice

    "St Johnstone's car park is being used for the Ryder Cup and it looks like the players would rather be at the golf. The visitors have been sluggish and offer nothing up front."

    Kilmarnock 1-0 Partick Thistle

    Motherwell 0-2 Hamilton

    Ross County 1-0 Dundee

    Motherwell 0-2 Hamilton (Crawford)

    Hamilton double their lead at Fir Park, as Ali Crawford steals the ball from Paul Lawson and leaves the home defence in his wake to slot past Dan Twardzik.

  39. Post update

    Aberdeen are back on the attack and Adam Rooney hammers in an absolute fizzer from a tight angle. Dean Brill pushes it over for a corner and his fingertips will be stinging.

  40. Post update

    Aberdeen are well on top now but they are leaving gaps at the back as Aaron Doran charges forward. However, the Inverness midfielder cannot find Billy McKay with his attempted to cross when a shot might have been the better option.

  41. GOAL

    Aberdeen 2-1 Inverness CT (Logan)

    Jonny Hayes finds David Goodwillie in the penalty area and the striker shifts his feet to find room for shot before thinking again and slipping in Shaleum Logan, who hammers in a sweet strike across keeper Dean Brill.


    BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park

    "Oh so unlucky for Partick Thistle's Ryan Stevenson as his 25-yard rasper smacks the Kilmarnock crossbar! A lovely, sweet strike from the Ayr United fan.

    "Minutes before, Thistle centre-back Conrad Balatoni does well in a must-win challenge to thwart Tope Obadeyi going clean through for Kilmarnock."

  43. GOAL

    Motherwell 0-1 Hamilton (Andreu)

    Zane Francis-Angol fails to deal with a long ball upfield, and sclaffs his clearance straight to Tony Andreu inside the area and the midfielder calmly lifts the ball over Dan Twardzik. The visitors deservedly hold the lead over Motherwell.

  44. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Fir Park

    "A flowing Hamilton move ends with Tony Andreu setting up Ali Crawford, who sweeps a shot over. Motherwell are out of sorts and so far unable to shake themselves into life."

  45. GOAL

    Ross County 1-0 Dundee (Gardyne)

    Do not adjust your sets!County are in front as Michael Gardyne nets his first goal of the season from close range following Filip Kiss's pass.

  46. GOAL

    Dundee United 1-0 St Johnstone (Erskine)

    League leaders Dundee United break forward from a Saints corner, Nadir Ciftci turns and puts the ball into the path of Chris Erskine who slots it low past Alan Mannus.

  47. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 1-0 Partick Thistle (Obadeyi)

    It's a second goal of the season for Tope Obadeyi. The English forward stoops at the back-post to head home Ross Barbour's deep cross from the right-hand side.


    Gary Warren almost atones for his blunder immediately as he gets away from his marker but his near post header cannons off the woodwork.

  49. GOAL

    Aberdeen 1-1 Inverness CT (Rooney)

    A terrible headed back-pass from Gary Warren is intercepted by Adam Rooney and the big striker is a picture of calm as he rounds Dean Brill to level.

  50. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Fir Park

    "Hamilton spending a lot of time in Motherwell's half, and always look capable of creating an opening. The home side are lacking fluency and authority so far at Fir Park.

    "Zane Francis-Angol is booked for tripping Dougie Imrie just outside the penalty area and Danny Redmond sends the free-kick over."

  51. Post update

    David Goodwillie is given a good look at goal as the Inverness defence suffer a rare lapse in concentration but the Aberdeen striker can only shoot straight at Dean Brill.

  52. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park

    "Relatively even start here, but Partick Thistle should definitely be in front; Kris Doolan missing a great chance from close range after Steven Lawless's drive from the edge of the box is only parried by Craig Samson. Doolan's rebound shot was straight at the Killie goalkeeper."

  53. GOAL

    Aberdeen 0-1 Inverness CT (Meekings)

    Greg Tansey whips in a lovely free-kick and there is Josh Meekings all alone to send a flashing header past Jamie Langfield.

  54. Post update

    Aberdeen midfielder Peter Pawlett drives forward, leaving a trail of Inverness players in his wake but the ball gets stuck under his feet and his poked shot is blocked by a couple of opponents.


    From an Aberdeen free-kick, a wonderful overhead kick from David Goodwillie sails into the net but counts for nothing as the referee's whistle peeps long before he connects.

  56. Post update

    BBC Scotland's Richard Wilson at Fir Park

    "Tame start to the Lanarkshire derby. Motherwell have changed shape - to 4-3-3 - and personnel following the midweek cup loss to Hamilton, but it's the visitors who have threatened twice so far. Tony Andreu's shot was palmed away by Dan Twardzik and Stephen Hendrie's effort from 25 yards out skimmed the top of the crossbar."

  57. Post update

    A flowing move from Aberdeen culminates with David Goodwillie delivering a cross for strike partner Adam Rooney to head over on the stretch.

  58. Post update

    Aberdeen and Inverness are knocking the ball around nicely at Pittodrie. It's easy on the eye but BBC Radio Scotland commentator Rob Maclean is worried about where the goals are coming from. His summariser Craig Paterson is more optimistic, predicting a high-scoring game.

  59. KICK-OFF

    We are off!

    With the Ryder Cup taking centre stage this weekend, there is no room on the BBC Radio Scotland airwaves for Open All Mics. Normal service will be resumed next weekend.

    Will today be the day the Staggies get their first points on the board? The Dingwall side have finished empty-handed in seven league games and confidence will have been given another knock following a home defeat to Hibs in the League Cup.

    New boss Jim McIntyre is still searching for his best team and really needs to tighten up a defence that has leaked an alarming number of goals.

    Following an excellent start to the season, Dundee have suffered back-to-back losses to local rivals Dundee United, with defender Paul McGinn warning this one may be an "ugly" game.

  63. Post update


    Penalties were needed to separate these Lanarkshire neighbours on Wednesday and Motherwell will be plotting revenge as they look to claw their way up the table after a surprisingly erratic start to the campaign.

    Manager Stuart McCall makes six changes for this one.

    Hamilton's young guns are having a ball in the top flight, having lost just once so far. Player boss Alex Neil reckons the current crop of youngsters have more talent than the squad that produced English Premier League starts James McArthur and James McCarthy.

    Mikael Antoine-Curier is back to lead the line for Accies.

  64. Post update


    These sides were evenly matched last season, each enjoying a win at Rugby Park and sharing two draws at Firhill, with just one point separating them at the end of it all.

    Alexei Eremenko is catching up in terms of fitness after cunningly missing out on the gruelling pre-season regimen and the Kilmarnock playmaker is a joy to behold when in the mood.

    The Jags needed extra-time to see off St Mirren in the League Cup on Wednesday but fatigue shouldn't be an issue at this stage of the campaign.

  65. Post update


    Jackie McNamara's side are flying high at the top of the table with five wins from seven, while it's been a bit of a see-saw start for Saints.

    This is the first meeting of these Tayside rivals since the Scottish Cup final, which the Perth side won 2-0, making it four victories in a row in this fixture for Tommy Wright's men.

    Brian Graham has knocked in three goals in four games for St Johnstone since his loan switch from Tannadice but he'll need to sit this one out.

  66. Post update


    Every pundit's pick for second place are in the bottom half of the table but there have been signs of improvement for Derek McInnes's men following comfortable wins against Ross County and Livingston.

    Adam Rooney bagged his second hat-trick of the season against Livi in the League Cup and his understanding with strike partner David Goodwillie is improving all the time.

    Caley Thistle are level on points with league leaders Dundee United and have the meanest defence in the top flight. John Hughes has a small but settled squad and will settle into a neat, possession-based routine if opponents stand off them.


    Kilmarnock: Samson, Barbour, Hamill, Connolly, Clingan, Johnston, Obadeyi, Eremenko, Westlake, Magennis, Pascali. Subs: Brennan, Miller, Ashcroft, Slater, Ngoo, O'Hara, Muirhead.

    BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park

    "Kilmarnock make one change from the team that lost 1-0 to St Johnstone in the League Cup. Left-back Chris Chantler is replaced by fellow Englishman Darryl Westlake. Alexei Eremenko starts despite being sent off on Tuesday, as the ban counts in League Cup games.

    "Partick Thistle juggle things slightly, too. Ayr United fan Ryan Stevenson comes in at the expense of winger James Craigen."


    St Mirren 1-2 Celtic

    A double from John Guidetti earns Celtic victory in Paisley. It was far from a vintage performance from the champions, who looked rattled for a while when St Mirren levelled. However, the visitors retained their composure after going back in front and were comfortable in the closing stages.

  70. Post update

  86. GOAL

    St Mirren 1-2 Celtic (Guidetti)

    Celtic move Anthony Stokes into a central role and the ploy pays off immediately as he slips a fantastic reverse pass through to John Guidetti and the Swede pokes a shot past Marian Kello.

    It was straight at the keeper, who will think he should have stopped it. I'm sure all the St Mirren supporters will certainly think he should have done better.

  93. GOAL

    St Mirren 1-1 Celtic (McLean)

    A terrible throw out from Craig Gordon leads to St Mirren's first home goal in the league. Sean Kelly rolls a pass to John McGinn, who drills a low cross into the penalty box for Jason Naismith to have a shot. Gordon makes a great diving save but Kenny McLean is in the right spot to stroke in the loose ball.

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at St Mirren Park

    "Very disappointing for St Mirren to lose a goal just before the break. They've held their own against the champions, who've lacked a bit of invention, but Emilio Izaguirre provided that with an incisive pass for Scott Brown and his cross proved impossible for Jim Goodwin and Marian Kello to defend. Now Celtic will want to kill the game off, while St Mirren need to retain the belief they showed in that first period."

  99. Post update

    BBC Sportsound pundit Pat Bonner

    "Celtic need to step it up in the second half; the passing and build-up has been too slow. I don't think playing Callum McGregor centrally is working. St Mirren are working. There was only really one moment when they didn't do their duties and they were punished."

  100. HALF-TIME

    St Mirren 0-1 Celtic

    It's not been much of game but we a goal now and it's the champions who lead in Paisley thanks to that scrambled effort on 42 minutes. John Guidetti is still getting the credit and it was his determination to get on the end of Scott Brown's low delivery that led to the goal even if he didn't get the final touch.

    Robert in Dundee: "Surely Stuart Duff is worthy of a place!!"

    Martin, Edinburgh: "What about Aberdeen midfielder, Ryan Hack?"

  102. GOAL

    St Mirren 0-1 Celtic (Guidetti)

    Scott Brown, who may have been a tad offside, cuts into the penalty box from the right and squares into the six yard box where John Guidetti slides in under pressure from Jim Goodwin and Marian Kello. It looks like the ball hits the keeper and bounces in off the defender, so we might be taking that one from the Celtic striker. I'll need another look...


    St Mirren's Thomas Reilly is the first man to be cautioned as he clips the speeding Mubarak Wakaso.

    Anthony Stokes delivers a devilish free kick from the right but no Celtic player can get a touch and Marian Kello gathers the ball into his chest.

  106. Post update

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at St Mirren Park

    "Nothing much between these teams thus far. St Mirren trying to ensure Celtic don't get time on the ball and apart from a couple of nervy moments in the opening minutes, Marian Kello's had nothing to do. Thomas Reilly's long-range thunderbolt off the bar remains the closest we've come to a goal."

    The Scott Brown v John McGinn duel continues, with the St Mirren youngster barging the Celtic captain off the ball in the centre circle. McGinn is down and looks in pain, which will be a worry for Buddies boss Tommy Craig.

    Celtic captain Scott Brown whips in a dangerous free kick and a lunging Virgil van Dijk connects at the back post to volley over but the officials spot an infringement in a congested penalty area.

    A huge roar of approval from the home fans as John McGinn harries Scott Brown, forcing the Celtic skipper to run the ball out of play. That should be a good contest...

    Our first entry for the Golf XI comes from Steven High in Ellon: "Has to be Alan Rough in goal"

    Let's keep it to players with a Scottish connection, please.


    What a strike! Thomas Reilly, making a rare start for St Mirren, lets fly from fully 30 yards and the ball dips on to the crossbar, with keeper Craig Gordon beaten all ends up.

    A lofted ball over the top from Virgil van Dijk leaves the home defence exposed and keeper Marian Kello has to race from his line and save with his knees from Anthony Stokes.

    Celtic work the ball to Stefan Johansen, who thunders in a shot from the edge of the penalty area, and Marc McAusland puts his body on the line to block.

  122. KICK-OFF

    Celtic, wearing a bottle green tartan carpet strip, get the game started, with St Mirren Park bathed in glorious sunshine.

    BBC Scotland's senior football reporter Alasdair Lamont at St Mirren Park

    "St Mirren manager Tommy Craig has had a dig at the obscenities used by a "minority of supporters" in last weekend's win over Partick Thistle. He says he doesn't care about criticism but doesn't want families at St Mirren to be subjected to such abusive language. Does he have a point about bad language at football matches?"

    "We know how difficult it will be but the boys are positive in the changing room, I was in there before the match. If you get at them and you're brave then you can exploit this Celtic team but of course you have to be impeccable defensively because they have such quality up front."

    Big Stevie is recovering from groin surgery and should be back playing around Christmas...

    "The message is to start on the front foot. If we sit back we are asking for trouble. We need to claw our way back into the pack, so we'll be going for the win."

    St Mirren are yet to score at home in the league this season...

    Celtic were held at home by Motherwell in a rather lacklustre draw last weekend, dropping points for the third time in six league matches. St Mirren fared better, with a stoppage-time penalty completing a 2-1 comeback win at Partick Thistle.

    St Mirren would lose out after extra-time at the same venue a few days later in the League Cup, while Celtic knocked three past Championship leaders Hearts to reach the last eight in the same competition.

    St Mirren beat Celtic 3-2 at Hampden in 2013

    St Mirren have not beaten Celtic in Paisley since the famous 4-0 trouncing in 2010 that was to cost Tony Mowbray his job as the visitors' manager. The Buddies have of course beaten the champions since then, winning 3-2 in the 2013 League Cup semi-final on their way to winning the trophy.

    It's not been a great start to the season for the Buddies, with just one win in the league and tumbling out of the League Cup this week. And the bad news for the home side is that Celtic looked like they might just be starting to click when they swept Hearts aside on Wednesday.

    Ronny Deila has been chopping and changing personnel since he arrived in Glasgow this summer but is getting closer to a settled core group now that hugely influential skipper Scott Brown is back from injury.

    The last time Celtic were in Paisley Kris Commons scored twice in a 4-0 success. He is absent today through injury.
