    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "An anxious few minutes now for St Mirren as Gary Irvine pulls one back - he was on hand to drill past Mark Ridgers from 14 yards"

  27. Post update

    Quite a comeback for St Johnstone in the second half. Trailing at half-time, they have turned it around to lead against Dundee United in Perth.

    St Johnstone players celebrating
  28. CLOSE!

    Motherwell 1-0 Partick Thistle

    Two chances for Partick Thistle. Kris Doolan's initial shot is blocked and he cannot convert with his second attempt. Motherwell go quickly upfield and Lee Erwin fires narrowly wide.

  29. GOAL

    Dundee 1-3 St Mirren (Irvine)

    Gary Irvine's shot pulls a goal back for Dundee.

  30. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    Filip Kiss strikes the ball well and then watches in agony as the ball bounces back off the post. So close to a County opener.

  31. Post update

    John Taylor on Twitter: "This is a great result for St Mirren"

  32. GOAL

    St Johnstone 2-1 Dundee Utd (Millar)

    Saints are in front for the first time. Chris Millar is given too much time to size up a shot and beats Radoslaw Cierzniak with a right-foot shot - the midfielder's first goal of the season.

  33. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Hamilton's Darian MacKinnon holds his head in horror as he nods an Ali Crawford corner over the bar from six yards. That was THE chance of the game!

  34. CLOSE!

    St Johnstone 1-1 Dundee Utd

    Two great chances in a minute for St Johnstone, whose tails are up after the goal. Brian Easton elects to go alone and drives a shot at Radoslaw Cierzniak, before Steven MacLean directs the corner just over.

  35. RED CARD

    Dundee 0-3 St Mirren

    And Paul McGinn was sent off for his foul that led to St Mirren's penalty.

  36. GOAL

    Dundee 0-3 St Mirren (McLean, pen)

    Kenny McLean converts the spot-kick and St Mirren have what looks like an unassailable lead.

  37. PENALTY

    Dundee 0-2 St Mirren

    Paul McGinn brings down Kenny McLean and St Mirren have a penalty.

  38. Post update

    Sportscene will be starting shortly on BBC One Scotland.

  39. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    It's beginning to look like a stalemate at Rugby Park. The chances have dried up after the break. Hamilton player-manager Alex Neil, now in the technical area, has sent on striker Jason Scotland for the tiring Michael Antoine-Curier.

  40. GOAL

    St Johnstone 1-1 Dundee Utd (O'Halloran)

    Lee Croft puts in a wonderful cross for Michael O'Halloran, who heads in off the ground and into the net.

  41. CHAMPAGNE MOMENT

    Dundee 0-2 St Mirren

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "A first senior goal for St Mirren midfielder Stevie Mallan! The youngster picks the ball up in the middle of the park and evades a couple of tackles before curling it superbly past Kyle Letheren."

  42. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd

    Jackie McNamara's men cannot quite put daylight between themselves and the hosts. Stuart Armstrong has a third good chance of the half, before Nadir Ciftci puts a free-kick just over.

  43. GOAL

    Dundee 0-2 St Mirren (Mallan)

    An impressive curling shot by Stephen Mallan doubles St Mirren's lead. Might this be a first win for caretaker manager Gary Teale?

  44. Tweet using #bbcscotfootball

    Adam Reid: "who would ever have thought Rangers would be thumped at Hibs and be so many points behind Hearts? #bbcscotfootball"

  45. Post update

    Motherwell 1-0 Partick Thistle

    Motherwell, having dominated the first half, have fallen out of the game in the second and Partick Thistle may yet get something from the match at Fir Park.

  46. Post update

    Ross County have had to dig in to frustrate so far at Celtic Park.

    Jamie Reckord and Scott Brown
  47. CLOSE!

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd

    Textbook counter-attacking play from the visitors. David Wotherspoon has a shot from inside the box blocked, and Jackie McNamara's men race forward at pace with Nadir Ciftci just curling a shot wide of the post.

  48. Post update

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "A bit of a flare-up here as Isaac Osbourne goes in heavily on Dundee's Kevin Thomson. Thomson, who's suffered some terrible injuries in the past, certainly did not appreciate the lateness of the challenge - no action taken by referee Don Robertson though."

  49. TEXT 80295

    Alex MacDonald Edinburgh: "Hearts away support at Livi is the biggest away support in the UK today."

  50. CHANCES GALORE

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Accies goalie Michael McGovern saves a powerful shot by Robbie Muirhead and at the other end Ali Crawford's effort is deflected for a corner after he was set up by Dougie Imrie. From the resultant corner, Mark Connolly leaps to head an effort off the goal-line.

  51. Post update

    Plenty of chances so far at Rugby Park but it's still goalless in Ayrshire between Kilmarnock and Hamilton.

    Darian MacKinnon and Craig Slater
  52. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd

    Stuart Armstrong hits the side netting for Dundee United. Vastly different second half in terms of chances.

  53. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Kilmarnock's Lee Ashcroft keeps his cool to calmly head the ball back to his goalkeeper Craig Samson, while under pressure from a red-and-white shirted predator.

  54. GREAT SAVE!

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd

    St Johnstone captain Dave MacKay cracks a left-foot shot towards goal with Radoslaw Cierzniak doing well to tip over.

  55. Post update

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Scotland at McDiarmid Park

    "St Johnstone far from out of this match but you have to be impressed with the quality of United's passing and interplay. Incisive and with pace, which may prove decisive in the end."

  56. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    Celtic respond with Callum McGregor chipping the ball against the frame of the goal and John Guidetti cannot convert the rebound.

  57. Post update

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    Lewis Toshney gets on the end of Richie Brittain's cross to head towards the Celtic goal but Craig Gordon makes the save.

  58. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd

    The early signs are the second half is going to be better fare than the first 45 minutes. Lee Croft races to the byline but his cross is well held by Radoslaw Cierzniak, then Stuart Armstrong tests Alan Mannus from close range.

  59. TEXT 80295

    Kev, Northampton: "what is it with Ronny Deila playing 1 up front at home if Celtic fail to win the league this year then Deila and the Board want booted as far away as possible!!"

  61. KICK-OFF

    Matches resuming.

  62. REACTION FROM EARLIER

    Hibernian 4-0 Rangers

    Rangers caretaker manager Kenny McDowall

    "It was very disappointing to be two goals down after 12 minutes. Our whole game plan went out the window after that. They just did not look organised at times. They were not where they should have been on the park. I will accept the responsibility for the result. I set the team up and the boys will accept responsibility for the performances. It was not good enough."

  63. HALF-TIME

    Livingston 0-1 Hearts

  66. Post update

    Dundee 0-1 St Mirren

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "With goal-happy forward players like David Clarkson and Greg Stewart in Dundee's line-up, I feared for St Mirren today. But the Paisley men hold a deserved half-time lead thanks to the player of the match so far - Kenny McLean."

  67. HALF-TIME

    Dundee 0-1 St Mirren

    Kenny McLean's goal separates the sides at the break. St Mirren started the day bottom of the Premiership but may climb up the table today.

  68. HALF-TIME

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    And no goals either at Rugby Park but enough attempts at goal to keep the fans enthused. Craig Samson has been the busier keeper, as Ali Crawford, Dougie Imrie and Stephen Hendrie have peppered the Killie goal, while Robbie Muirhead was somehow unable to convert Killie's best chance when Accies goalie Michael McGovern was left exposed.

  69. HALF-TIME

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    Celtic have been frustrated so far against Ross County. No goals so far in Glasgow.

  70. HALF-TIME

    Motherwell 1-0 Partick Thistle

    Motherwell have the lead at the break with John Sutton on target with a penalty.

  71. HALF-TIME

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd

    United lead at half-time in the Tayside derby, courtesy of Calum Butcher's goal.

  72. CLOSE!

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    John Guidetti attempts to back-heel Leigh Griffiths shot towards goal but the Celtic striker's effort is wide.

  73. GOAL

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd (Butcher)

    Calum Butcher meets the ball at the back post and slides the past goalkeeper Alan Mannus.

  74. CLOSE!

    Dundee 0-1 St Mirren

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "St Mirren's Stevie Mallan has a lucky escape as an attempted headed clearance by the young midfielder hits his own post in a penalty box scramble."

  75. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Dundee Utd

    The home side are slowly taking control of the game, with captain Dave MacKay the unlikely main attacking threat. His cut-back is stopped in its tracks yards from goal, then he heads just wide of the post from the resulting corner.

  76. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Just when it looked as if Killie were getting a grip on the game, up gallops Accies' Stephen Hendrie to arrow a shot a fraction wide.

  77. Post update

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    Michael Gardyne, a late entry to the Ross County starting line-up following an injury to Graham Carey, is withdrawn before half-time and Lewis Toshney comes on for the visitors at Celtic Park.

  78. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    The ball is laid on a plate for Kilmarnock's Robbie Muirhead, with a cut-back from the right, but he moves too close to goal and the cannot get the ball out from under his feet, with the goal at his mercy.

  79. Post update

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    Callum McGregor, who came on for Anthony Stokes earlier, sends a tame effort goalwards and Ross County goalkeeper Antonio Reguero makes the save. Moments later Adam Matthews has a chance for Celtic but cannot convert.

  80. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Dundee Utd

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Scotland at McDiarmid Park

    "Entertaining match at McDiarmid with some crisp passing and neat interplay in front of a big crowd. Just lacking that killer ball to unlock either defence."

  81. Post update

    Kenny McLean celebrates his goal for St Mirren at Dens Park with Jason Naismith.

  82. Post update

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "Absolutely brilliant goal by Kenny McLean. The St Mirren midfielder capitalises on a poor Thomas Konrad clearance and plays a classy one-two with Sean Kelly before sending a measured shot past an outstretched Kyle Letheren. Great to watch!"

  83. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Hamilton have the upper hand against their hosts and Dougie Imrie is the latest to make sure Killie keeper Craig Samson is concentrating on the match. His shot is saved and moments later Imrie finds space in the box by pushing the ball on to his left foot but he blasts over the bar from out on the right.

  84. Post update

    This John Sutton penalty put Motherwell in front against Partick Thistle.

  85. GOAL

    Dundee 0-1 St Mirren (McLean)

    Kenny McLean's strike gives the Buddies the lead at Dens Park.

  86. Post update

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "St Mirren's Kenny McLean shows excellent technique in sending a scissor kick towards Kyle Letheren's goal, but the end result is comfortably over the Dundee keeper's crossbar."

  87. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Tony Andreu tests Craig Samson from distance but the big Killie goalie is well positioned to make the save.

  88. GOAL

    Livingston 0-1 Hearts (Keatings)

    James Keatings atones for his earlier penalty miss by putting Hearts ahead. The Tynecastle side will go 15 points clear at the top of Scottish Championship if they win today.

  89. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 Dundee Utd

    Nothing much to report at McDairmid Park. The fire has yet to be lit under the Tayside derby. A few half-chances being rattled off the legs of various defenders is the story of the game so far.

  90. Post update

    Premiership leaders Celtic are at home to Ross County today. No goals so far.

    John Guidetti has had a couple of free-kick efforts for Celtic but the Swede has so far been unable to find the Ross County net.

  93. GREAT SAVE!

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    What was that about no shots on target at Rugby Park? Ali Crawford smashes an effort at goal that looked like it might have sneaked in under the Killie crossbar had Craig Samson not been on his toes to make a good save.

  94. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Ali Crawford has a shot blocked by the Killie defence and from the resultant corner the Ayrshiremen clear the danger. No attempts on target yet at Rugby Park. Killie's Craig Slater limps off for treatement after a heavy challenge by Darian MacKinnon.

  95. GOAL

    Motherwell 1-0 Partick Thistle (Sutton, pen)

    John Sutton converts from 12 yards to give Motherwell the lead.

    Hearts miss the chance to go ahead as James Keatings' spot-kick is saved by Darren Jamieson.

  98. Post update

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

    "Wonderful save by St Mirren goalkeeper Mark Ridgers! The former Hearts man tips over Luka Tankulic's powerful shot. The first real chance of the game and it falls to Dundee."

  99. Post update

    Kilmarnock 0-0 Hamilton Academical

    Alex Neil, Accies' player-manager, is caught in possession 22 yards from goal but Rory McKenzie hurries his shot from the edge of the box and Michael McGovern makes a comfortable save.

  100. Post update

    Celtic 0-0 Ross County

    Early change required for the hosts at Celtic Park. Anthony Stokes goes off injured and on comes Callum McGregor.

    It started well for Hibs and just got better for the hosts as they continually opened up a vulnerable Rangers defence. Four points now separate these sides in the Championship and leaders Hearts can go 15 points clear of second-place Rangers if they beat Livingston later today.

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Easter Road

    "There was a spark of life to Rangers after the break, but it was quenched by the excellence of Scott Allan. The Hibs midfielder has been outstanding and his pass created the home side's third and fourth goals. Rangers fans have been heading for the Easter Road exits."

  136. GOAL

    Hibernian 4-0 Rangers (Craig)

    And Hibs do get a fourth with Scott Allan involved again. The midfielder's delicate chip to the left-hand edge of the box is volleyed round Steven Simonsen by Liam Craig.

  137. CLOSE!

    And Hibs come very close to a fourth. Danny Handling collects Lewis Stevenson's low driven cross and flashes a shot just wide of the left-hand post.

  138. CLOSE!

    Rangers almost pull one back straight away. Kris Boyd heads Richard Foster's deep cross back for Nicky Law, whose shot on the turn is cleared off the line by Liam Fontaine.

  139. GOAL

    Hibernian 3-0 Rangers (Robertson)

    Hibs carve open the Rangers defence again with Scott Allan slipping a pass beyond Richard Foster and Scott Robertson coolly curves the ball past Steve Simonsen.

  140. Post update

    Captain Grant: "(on Rangers) the current management couldnt turn around a turn table"

    Keith Burns: "Just hope Rangers make it into the play offs, and somehow scrape their way up that way. #bbcscotfootball"

    simon smith: "Kris (not proven) Boyd playing not much football. Would do better if he tried to head butt the ball instead. #bbcscotfootball"

    Farrah: "An unstable club makes for an unstable football team - no individual player salary will fix that for Rangers. #bbcscotfootball"

  141. Post update

    Steven Smith's free-kick into the Hibs box pinballs around before almost falling for Kris Boyd but it ricochets off him and out for a goal kick.

  142. Post update

    Hibs have been guilty of some sloppiness at the start of this second half, giving the ball away too easily and inviting pressure on to themselves but so far Rangers have not been able to capitalise.

  143. Post update

    Kris Boyd has had an impact already, but not the sort the visitors were hoping for. Some heavy challenges from the striker leads to referee Bobby Madden giving him a warning.

  144. Post update

    Hibs get the second half underway.

  145. Post update

    Rangers make their second change of the game with Kris Boyd replacing Fraser Aird.

  151. HALF-TIME

    Hibernian 2-0 Rangers

    Hibs deservedly in front at the break. Goals from David Gray and Jason Cummings have exposed Rangers frailties and the gap between these two sides looks like narrowing to four points at this stage.

    Kenny Miller heads a Lee Wallace cross wide of the Hibs goal.

    Ian Waugh on Facebook: "Watershed day for the Gers. The board must now realise things are desperate both on and off the park but will they accept any of the offers on the table? I very much doubt it! Get the youngsters blooded as the old guard are not up to the job and costing a fortune."

    Around five minutes until half-time at Easter Road. The game is less frantic and the pace has dropped.

  157. Post update

    Rangers caretaker boss Kenny McDowall has seen enough and decides to make a change. Midfielder Ian Black, earlier booked, is withdrawn and on comes Kyle Hutton.

  158. GREAT SAVE!

    Jason Cummings tests Rangers goalkeeper Steve Simonson with a stinging 22-yard drive and Scott Robertson is unsuccessful with the rebound, sliding it wide.

  159. Post update

    Rangers look vulnerable every time crosses come into their box. Two deliveries get the home crowd excited but the visitors manage to scramble clear on both occasions."

  160. Post update

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Easter Road

    "Alan Stubbs' side is playing confident, measured passing football and are a dominant in midfield, whereas Rangers players are conceding possession all over the pitch. Hibs are lively up front, too, and will feel that they can increase their lead. Rangers need an overhaul, in mood, confidence and tactics for this game."

  161. Post update

    Rangers make their first serious foray forward with Lee Wallace clipping a teasing cross along the six-yard line but neither Kenny Miller nor Fraser Aird can convert.

    "The home side are reliant on their full-backs for width, but it is proving worthwhile. Rangers are playing like a team that is stunned."

  167. Post update

    Should Rangers lose, Scottish Championship leaders Hearts could open up a 15-point gap if they beat Livingston later today and Hibs would move to within four points of second-place Rangers.

    James and his dad heading from Perth to Livingston to be part of the 7000 Jambos: "hibs to win - yes please!!!"

  169. GOAL

    Hibernian 2-0 Rangers (Cummings)

    It just gets better for Hibs. Liam Craig knocks a deep Scott Allan delivery back across goal and Jason Cummings adds the final touch into the empty net with goalkeeper Steven Simonsen stranded.

  170. Post update

    Gray scored with the first real effort of the match and what a hit. It's definitely what manager Alan Stubbs would have wanted while Rangers caretaker Kenny McDowall will be ruing such an early set-back in his first match in charge.
