    Kris Doolan scored the first Scottish Premiership hat-trick of the season and, if he is indeed credited with the opening goal, it will be a four-goal haul from Partick Thistle's 5-0 defeat of Hamilton Academical.

    Mikael Lustig scored twice, including this diving header, in Celtic's 4-0 win over Motherwell.

    Mikael Lustig scores for Celtic against Motherwell

    With Celtic going top of the Scottish Premiership, Aberdeen slip to second but Inverness Caledonian Thistle stay third by virtue of Dundee United's inability to beat St Mirren. The Tangerines remain fourth.

    Hamilton are still fifth, despite their hefty defeat by Partick Thistle. St Johnstone, who lost to Inverness on Tuesday, are sixth.

    Dundee move up to seventh and are now just three points off the top six with Kilmarnock, the team the Dark Blues beat tonight, slipping to eighth.

    Ninth-place Partick Thistle stretch their advantage over Motherwell to seven points and the Steelmen are now only two points above St Mirren, who are four points ahead of bottom side Ross County. However County have two games in hand over the Buddies.

    Celtic 4-0 Motherwell

    Celtic return to the Scottish Premiership with what seems to have been a straightforward win over Motherwell, who offered little in Glasgow.


    Dundee 1-0 Kilmarnock

    Greg Stewart's first-half penalty proves to be enough and Dundee leapfrog opponents Kilmarnock into seventh place in the Premiership.


    St Mirren 1-1 Dundee United

    It ends a goal apiece and a point apiece in Paisley. St Mirren go four points clear of bottom side Ross County. Dundee United remain fourth.

  18. Post update

    Mikael Lustig only came on at the interval and has scored twice as well as hitting the bar in what is shaping up to be a very comfortable Celtic win over Motherwell.

    Celtic defender Mikael Lustig

    Partick Thistle 5-0 Hamilton Academical

    A memorable night for Partick Thistle and Kris Doolan. The striker got at least three and probably the first, meaning a four-goal haul. Nathan Eccleston was also on target. A night to forget for Hamilton.


    Robert Taylor on Twitter: "More like celtic tonight back to the top we go #bbcscotfootball"

    Mikael Lustig certainly fancies his chances tonight. The half-time substitute almost gets his third of the evening with a shot against the crossbar.

    Nathan Eccleston, on for Kris Doolan, finishes low with a rebound shot after having his initial effort saved.

    Celtic 4-0 Motherwell

    Colin Moffat

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "Motherwell are being torn apart as Leigh Griffiths flights in the perfect cross for Mikael Lustig to attack near the edge of the box and the big Swede, returning from injury as a substitute, powers a header into the top corner."

  24. GOAL

    Celtic 4-0 Motherwell (Lustig)

    Mikael Lustig gets his head to a Leigh Griffiths cross, diving in to net his second of the night.


    St Mirren 1-1 Dundee United

    A Marc McAusland shot is blocked inside the Dundee United six-yard box. Calls for handball go unheeded.

    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen is withdrawn after a clash of heads with Mark O'Brien. Stefan Scepovic comes on for the hosts.

  34. Post update

    St Mirren 1-1 Dundee United

    If Dundee United are to find a way of winning this match then it would come as no surprise if Gary Mackay-Steven was the man to make the difference. He's looked threatening every time he's picked up the ball, with the St Mirren defenders not quite sure how to combat the winger.

  35. Post update

    Partick Thistle 4-0 Hamilton Academical

    The prolific Kris Doolan volleys into the hands of Hamilton goalkeeper Michael McGovern.

    Leigh Griffiths celebrates after scoring for Celtic against Motherwell

    Leigh Griffiths scored their second against the Steelmen.


    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    Colin Moffat

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "The ball breaks kindly for Leigh Griffiths in the penalty area and the Celtic striker delays when a shot looks on only to find Emilio Izaguirre right in front of goal with a deft square pass. However, the left-back somehow hammers a shot against the crossbar from six yards."


    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    Colin Moffat

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "Stefan Johansen slaloms his way into the penalty area and lays off a pass for Kris Commons to have a bash but keeper Dan Twardzik is able to keep out the Celtic midfielder's low shot with a good sprawling save."

  39. CLOSE!

    St Mirren 1-1 Dundee United

    Dundee United full-back Conor Townsend has an attempt on goal after being released down the left by Stuart Armstrong, but his shot flies across the face of Marc Ridgers' goal.


    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    Colin Moffat

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "So close to a third goal for Celtic as the hosts break at pace and Emilio Izaguirre's curling delivery is met by Stefan Johansen only for the Norwegian's stooping header to strike the post and keeper Dan Twardzik is first to the loose ball."

  41. Post update

    Partick Thistle 4-0 Hamilton Academical

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Firhill

    "Kris Doolan conjures up a moment of brilliance at Firhill. Ably abetted by Steven Lawless, who leapt up in the air to flick the ball with his heel into the striker's path, Doolan controls and with his back to goal, cutely back heels the ball into the net. Moments later, he scores the fourth with a header. Hamilton are down and out in this game."

  42. Post update

    Kris Doolan has been the scourge of Hamilton tonight.

    Kris Doolan scores for Partick Thistle against Hamilton
  43. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 4-0 Hamilton Academical (Doolan)

    No matter what, Kris Doolan has a hat-trick! This time the Thistle forward rises highest to get his head to a cross from the right and nods the ball confidently past Michael McGovern.

  44. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 3-0 Hamilton Academical (Doolan)

    What a night Kris Doolan is having. The striker has the ball in space inside the box but with his back to goal. However, the Hamilton defence are undone but Doolan's backheel into the net. If the Thistle forward is indeed credited with the first goal, that's a hat-trick.

  45. Post update

    St Mirren 1-1 Dundee United

    The first half at St Mirren Park was end-to-end stuff but it's been far more sedate at the start of the second period. The Buddies perhaps just shading things at the moment but they have not really tested Radoslaw Cierzniak in the Dundee United goal since the break.


    Dundee 1-0 Kilmarnock

    Gary Harkins fires against the crossbar from the edge of the box and the ball ricochets out for a corner off Killie goalkeeper Craig Samson.

    Partick Thistle 2-0 Hamilton Academical

    Thistle so close to a third, Steven Lawless firing powerfully against the crossbar. The ball comes back to Ryan Stevenson, who draws a fine save from Michael McGovern.

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "With Motherwell simply not engaging as an attacking force, Celtic are strolling back to the top of the Premiership. The hosts have been a little casual, attempting to walk the ball through the pack of defenders around the penalty box but have twice found the net with simple, close range headers visitors."

  54. Post update

    St Mirren and Dundee United are locked at 1-1 at the break.

    Isaac Osbourne and John Rankin

    Both sides are eager for a win that could move them up the table.

  55. Post update

    There was debate about who scored Partick Thistle's first against Hamilton Academical.

    Partick Thistle players Kris Doolan and Ryan Stevenson

    Kris Doolan (number 9) was credited with the goal after helping Ryan Stevenson's lob into the net and Doolan scored Thistle's second with a low shot.


    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell

    Celtic comfortably ahead at the break. Virgil van Dijk and Leigh Griffiths converted Anthony Stokes crosses to give the hosts their lead.


    Partick Thistle 2-0 Hamilton Academical (Doolan)

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Firhill

    "A deserved lead for Thistle at Firhill. They have been comfortable in possession and despite the occasional break upfield by Hamilton, it's the home side who have looked more composed. Doolan and Stevenson will argue over the first goal, but the former struck the second with aplomb."

  58. Post update

    Celtic 2-0 Motherwell


    "Motherwell's resistance is broken for a second time and again it's far too easy as Leigh Griffiths darts in behind the defence to nod in another good delivery from Anthony Stokes."


    St Mirren 1-1 Dundee United

    Level at the break in Paisley. St Mirren briefly led through Kenny McLean before Stuart Armstrong equalised.


    Dundee 1-0 Kilmarnock

    Greg Stewart's penalty for Dundee separates the side at the break at Dens Park.

  61. GOAL

    Gary Mackay-Steven drives at the St Mirren defence, drawing defenders before squaring the ball for Stuart Armstrong who turns and fires a shot beyond Ridgers.

    Kris Doolan takes a superb touch and turns well in the Hamilton box before firing low past Michael McGovern.

  65. CLOSE!

    Partick Thistle 1-0 Hamilton Academical

    And Thistle are also close to doubling their lead, Steven Lawless firing wide.

  66. CLOSE!

    Dundee 1-0 Kilmarnock

    Dundee are a whisker away from a second. Iain Davidson cuts in from the left and curls in a low right-foot effort but it doesn't bend quite enough and goes narrowly wide.

  67. GOAL

    St Mirren 1-0 Dundee United (McLean)

    Now, all four of tonight's have a goal and this one from Kenny McLean was a beauty. The midfielder flicks the ball over Conor Townsend and then directs it past the onrushing Radoslaw Cierzniak into the net. Great skill.

  68. Post update

    Colin Moffat

    "Stephen Pearson gallops down the right flank in a rare Motherwell attack but the midfielder has no support whatsoever. He goes it alone with an ambitious chip aimed at the far post and is not far away."

    Richard Wilson

    "Both sides at Firhill are playing neat, attractive football, but it's the visitors Hamilton who have been the more incisive.

    St Mirren 0-0 Dundee United

    Dundee United have the ball in the net but only after referee John Beaton has blown his whistle for a foul by Nadir Ciftci on St Mirren defender Jim Goodwin. Ciftci will rue that one, he had the beating of Goodwin but was just a bit clumsy as he committed a foul before getting away a shot.

    The last two seasons have finished with Celtic miles ahead and Motherwell the best of the rest. It's a different story right now, with the champions bidding to overhaul leaders Aberdeen and the Lanarkshire team mired in a scrap to avoid relegation.

    Celtic have won 10 of their last 12 Premiership matches, with Dundee United the only side to get the better of them during that run, while Motherwell have lost their last three matches, conceding 11 goals.

    However, Ronny Deila's side had to work hard for a 1-0 win at Fir Park and the Steelmen picked up a point at Celtic Park in September.


    St Mirren 0-0 Dundee United

    Keith Watson's pass back is way too short which allows Kenny McLean to nip in, but Radoslaw Cierzniak is out quickly to block his effort.
