    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland at Ibrox

    "Much healthier crowd inside Ibrox today. That might be partly down to the commemoration of the anniversary of the Ibrox disaster.

    "But I suspect there are a few fans who've come along buoyed by the recent share purchases by Dave King and The Three Bears."

  70. Post update

    A minute's silence has taken place before the Rangers v Dumbarton match in memory of the Ibrox disaster in 1971. A minute's silence also took place at Ochilview following the death this week of Stenhousemuir player Kyle Docherty. Stenny play Stirling Albion today.

  71. Post update

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Hampden

    "It's a return to 'home sweet home' for Queen's Park today as they get back to playing their football at Hampden for the first time since November 2013.

    "Since then, 2014 Commonwealth Games set-up and clear-up has meant the Spiders have played their home matches at Airdrie's Excelsior Stadium.

    "But now they're back to their Mount Florida roots, and what better way to celebrate that than with a League Two derby against longstanding rivals Clyde - managed by former Scotland and Rangers captain Barry Ferguson."

  72. KICK-OFF

    The rest of today's matches are getting underway.

  73. Post update

    Today's result in the Edinburgh derby means Rangers can reduce Hearts' lead to 13 points if they beat Dumbarton. A win for the Ibrox side would also take them six points clear of Hibernian.

  79. Post update

    We'll get some reaction from the Edinburgh derby during the course of the afternoon but let's turn attention to the 15:00 GMT matches.

  80. Post update

    It was a better first half at Tynecastle with two excellent goals and some good chances. A lot of fouls after the break prevented either side building up much momentum.


    Hearts 1-1 Hibernian

    It finishes a goal apiece between Edinburgh's two great rivals for the second match running. Hearts maintain their unbeaten league run but their winning run at home in the league comes to an end. Hibs are now unbeaten in four.

  82. Post update

    Gary Oliver takes over from James Keatings in the Hearts line-up.


    The game enters three minutes of stoppage time.

  84. Post update

    Scott Robinson replaces Prince Buaben for Hearts.

  85. Post update

    Martin Boyle tries to get on the end of a cross into the Hearts box but Adam Eckersley gets the ball back to his keeper. Boyle claims for a foul but it is in vain.

  86. Post update

    Larry Nieto on Facebook: "Go on Hearts, win this one."


    Hibs midfielder Scott Allan commits a foul and becomes the latest player to be booked.

  88. Post update

    Callum Booth runs on to a loose ball and tries to lift a shot towards goal but it is blocked by the Hearts defence. Moments later Booth delivers low from the right and some frantic defending from the hosts gets the ball clear.

  89. Post update

    Now both goalscorers have been substituted. Jason Cummings comes off and Martin Boyle, who has joined Hibs on loan from Dundee, comes on for his debut.

  90. Post update

    Anne White on Facebook: "Come on the boys in green and white - you can do it!"

  91. Post update

    Liam Fontaine manages to get Adam Eckersley's cross into the Hibs box. Fine defending.

    Richard (Riz) Harcus: "Come on Hibs! Just finish this! GGTTH from Singapore #bbcscotfootball"

  93. Post update

    Crosses come into the Hearts box from both sides but the hosts' defence keeps getting it clear.


    Alim Ozturk is cautioned for his tackle on Hibs' Scott Allan.

  95. TEXT 80295

    Anonymous: "As a Hearts fan I am ashamed of our players going down easy, they're no diving but it's a slippery slope... Win the right way Hearts!"

    Momentary lapse from Mark Oxley as he fails to gather Callum Paterson's low cross at the first attempt but the Hibs keeper soon recovers.

  100. Post update

    Hearts goalscorer Jamie Walker comes off and Billy King comes on from the bench.

  103. Post update

    And Paterson is now receiving after stretching out his right leg to make that clearance.

  104. Post update

    Vital clearance from Callum Paterson prevents Scott Allan's cross reaching Dominique Malonga. The Hearts player may well have stopped his side going behind again.

  105. Post update

    Sam Nicholson heads over the Hibs crossbar from Adam Eckersley's inviting delivery.

    Callum Paterson's header from Sam Nicholson's deep corner lands on the roof of the Hibernian net.


    Another penalty appeal after Lewis Stevenson closes down Jamie Walker in the corner of the Hibs box. No award on this occasion either.


    bringthemonjpn: "Building up to be a smash and grab last 15 minutes match. Watch the subs bench."

    Scott: "Hibs to win with Cummings goal and him sent off with another celebration"

  111. Post update

    With the amount of fouls permeating this match and five players already booked, one wonders if both managers may make changes to ensure they keep 11 players on the pitch.

  112. Post update

    The New Year's Edinburgh derby has been predictably competitive.

    James Keatings and Paul Hanlon
  113. Post update

    Now it's Hearts' turn to claim for a penalty following Scott Allan's challenge on Morgaro Gomis but play on is the verdict again from referee Steven McLean.

  114. Post update

    Danny Handling goes down in the Hearts box after throwing himself at Lewis Stevenson's cross but the referee sees no infringement by Miguel Pallardo.

  115. Post update

    The game is becoming punctuated with fouls and this second half lacks the fluency of the first.


    Hearts midfielder Prince Buaben goes in late on Scott Robertson and becomes the latest player to become booked.


    Joe Falconer on Facebook: "Hearts need to get pushing upfield and stop going down so easy. 'Mon the hearts"

  118. Post update

  123. Post update

    James McCullough on Facebook: "my wish for 2015: referees stop booking players for celebrating important goals, both goalscorers at Tynecastle today booked for celebrating their goals, neither left the field of play, just ridiculous!!!"

  124. HALF-TIME

    Hearts 1-1 Hibernian

    Hearts will be happier with the scoreline at the break as Hibs were the better side in the first half. Opening goalscorer Jason Cummings had a great chance to make it 2-0 before Jamie Walker levelled. It's all set up for an interesting second half.

  125. Post update

    Jamie Walker (left) celebrates his equaliser for Hearts.

  130. Post update

    This was the moment Jason Cummings put Hibs in front.

    Liam Craig slides in on Miguel Pallardo amidst a couple of other hefty challenges in midfielder. It's a booking for Craig as referee Steven MacLean moves in to calm things down.

  132. Post update

    Mark Oxley is unconvincing as he gets a hand to Sam Nicholson's cross from the right and Jamie Walker retrieves only to fire into the side netting.

  133. Ouch!

    Hibs goalkeeper Mark Oxley clatters into Jamie Walker after coming out of his penalty box to kick the ball clear. Play rages on...

  134. CLOSE!

    Great chance for Hibs. The visitors retain possession with a flowing counter-attack move and Lewis Stevenson's cross finds Jason Cummings unmarked but the opening goalscorer heads wide.

  135. Post update

    Hibs are continuing to play with confidence in the wake of that goal. Hearts still look disjointed.


    Jason Cummings also gets a booking for his celebrations.

  137. GOAL

    Hearts 0-1 Hibernian (Cummings)

    It's been coming and now Hibs after the opening goal. A superb cross from Scott Allan finds Jason Cummings at the back post and the forward delicately sticks out his left foot to apply the finish.

  138. Post update

    Loud groans from the home fans after Morgaro Gomis over-hits a pass and the ball goes out of play.

  139. Ouch!

    Jamie Walker is able to continue after receiving treatment. The Hearts player took a sore one after jumping for a high ball with Paul Hanlon.

  140. Post update

    Sam Nicholson's shot is blocked by Liam Fontaine in the Hibs box. First real pressure from Hearts.

  142. Post update

    Liam Craig's tamely struck free-kick deflects up into the arms of Hearts goalkeeper Neil Alexander. That could've gone anywhere.

  143. Post update

    Referee Steven McLean has a word with Prince Buaben after he trips Hibs midfielder Scott Allan but keeps his cards in his pocket.

  144. Post update

    Hearts, unbeaten in the league, lead the Championship by 15 points and are 19 points ahead of Hibs, who are on a run of three straight wins.

  145. Post update

    A bit of pushing by David Gray ends a Hibs attack after he had ventured forward from right-back to challenge for a header. A bright start from the visitors at Tynecastle.


    Gus Graham: "Sorry, only one club in Edinburgh and it certainly ain't hibs"

    Rab Sutherland: "All the best hibs for this one"

  147. KICK-OFF
