    Remember to tune in tomorrow for our League Cup final coverage. Celtic take on Dundee United at Hampden for the first silverware of the season and our live offering has all angles covered. There will be TV, radio and text action every step of the way.

    Before that, Falkirk take on Alloa in around 15 minutes and you can see the Championship game live on BBC ALBA.

  3. Post update

    There are no post-match interviews being broadcast since the rugby has started. Scotland are already trailing at Twickenham if your must know. Without any thoughts from the managers, I'm running out of material, so I'll wrap things up.

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Hearts show no sign of letting up, crushing Dumbarton 4-0 at Tynecastle, and it won't be long before they have the title done and dusted. Hibs continue to cruise along in second place after a 2-0 win at Cowdenbeath.

    The headlines will all come from Ibrox though, as Rangers struggled to a 1-1 draw at home to bottom side Livingston on Stuart McCall's bow as manager.

    Rangers, who are now seven points behind second-placed Hibs, go to Alloa on Tuesday then have a trip to Easter Road next Sunday.

    That 3-0 victory is just the tonic for Partick Thistle, who have a six-point cushion on Ross County and are now nine-points clear of the play-off spot.

  7. Post update

    Ross County will be feeling very pleased with themselves as they recovered from 2-0 down at New Douglas Park to move further away from Motherwell and St Mirren. It means the Accies' winless run extends to 10 games uner Martin Canning...

    It's Billy King again as Hearts make it 4-0 against Dumbarton.

  14. GOAL

    KILMARNOCK 1-0 ST MIRREN (Miller)

    The hosts are rewarded for their more adventurous approach in the closing stages, with substitute Lee Miller on hand to finish off a cutback. It looks like St Mirren will stay at the foot of the table.

  15. Post update

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Billy King extends Hearts lead to 3-0 at home to Dumbarton. James Keatings is then clean through but tugs his shot wide.

    A pigeon at Ibrox

    The performance of Livingston goalkeeper Darren Jamieson in the match against Rangers at Ibrox attracts a feathered admirer.

  17. Post update

    KILMARNOCK 0-0 ST MIRREN

    Not much going on at Rugby Park as BBC Sportsound's Rob Maclean struggles to summon any enthusiasm for a drab second half in Ayshire. It looks like a sixth draw in seven for the home side.

  18. Post update

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Livingston keeper Darren Jamieson makes a great save to keep out Kenny Miller's header as Rangers press at Ibrox. Hearts and Hiberian are in control of their matches, with both Edinburgh sides leading 2-0.

  19. Post update

    Livingston's Ibra Sekajja performs a back somersault after scoring at Ibrox

    Do not try this at home... Livingston's Ibra Sekajja engages in some spectacular acrobatics after scoring at Ibrox. He hurt himself in the process but recovered sufficiently at half-time to keep going. Still 1-1 in that one.

  20. GOAL

    HAMILTON 2-2 ROSS COUNTY (Gardyne)

    The Staggies recover from 2-0 down as as Michael Gardyne applies a fine, clipped finish to Raffa De Vita's cross at the back post.

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Hearts look home and hosed now as captain Danny Wilson doubles their lead against Dumbarton with a free header from a corner.

  22. Post update

    HAMILTON 2-1 ROSS COUNTY

    County are enjoying a spot of pressure inside the Accies half at New Douglas Park - their corners are causing the hosts problems but, so far, they're failing to apply the killer touch.

    Accies are still looking potent on the break, however, as Jason Scotland releases Grant Gillespie, whose shot brushes the side-netting.

  23. Post update

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Just as BBC Sportsound's Chick Young is telling us the crowd ae beginning to turn on Rangers at Ibrox, the home team have the ball in the net, with Nicky Clark stooping to head home. However, the officials spot something awry and it remains 1-1 with Livingston.

  24. GOAL

    PARTICK THISTLE 3-0 ST JOHNSTONE (Bannigan)

    The three points are surely staying in Firhill now. Saints think they've got a free-kick cleared but the ball falls to Stuart Bannigan who thumps it from outside the box and past Alan Mannus.

  25. Post update

    KILMARNOCK 0-0 ST MIRREN

    James Dayton fires in the first meaningful effort of a largely forgettable second half, but Killie keeper Craig Samson is equal to it at his near post. Good move again by St Mirren though.

  26. Post update

    PARTICK THISTLE 2-0 ST JOHNSTONE

    Thistle are playing with the confidence that has been missing from recent performances as James Craigen jinks into the box but his shot from an angle is over.

  27. Post update

    A wee dip into Scottish League Two to congratulate Arbroath striker Bobby Linn on his hat-trick against Clyde. The hosts are 3-0 up at Gayfield.

  28. Post update

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Osman Sow lashes the ball in from close range to give leaders Hearts a 1-0 advantage at home to Dumbarton. The visiting players are complaining that goalkeeper Danny Rogers was impeded from the corner that led to the goal.

  29. Post update

    HAMILTON 2-1 ROSS COUNTY

    Marcus Fraser misses the first big chance of the second half - the Staggies defender slicing a neat Michael Gardyne cut-back inside the Accies area.

  30. Post update

    PARTICK THISTLE 2-0 ST JOHNSTONE

    Conrad Balatoni heads another corner over the crossbar from eight yards. St Johnstone's defending from set-pieces has been questionable today to put it kindly.

  31. KICK-OFF

    We're back up and running...

  32. Post update

    Rangers left-back Lee Wallace picks up the ball from Stuart McCall

    Rangers left-back Lee Wallace picks up the ball from manager Stuart McCall, whose half-time team-talk, you imagine, will have changed in tone with that last-gasp equaliser for Livingston.

    Conrad Balatoni heads in Partick Thistle's second against St Johnstone

    Here's when Conrad Balatoni headed in Partick Thistle's second as the Jags dent St Johnstone's hopes of holding on to their top-six placing in the Premiership. A win would give the hosts some useful breathing space after a run of poor results.

  34. Post update

    It will be interesting to see if Ibra Sekajja makes it out for the second half at Ibrox. The Livingston striker was hobbling badly after his goal celebration.

    Livingston are level at Ibrox as Ibra Sekajja scores after a cross strikes the post and then nearly breaks his leg with an acrobatic celebration.

  40. Post update

    PARTICK THISTLE 2-0 ST JOHNSTONE

    Michael O'Halloran misses a great chance to halve the deficit. It was an awkward bounce of the ball he had to deal with to be fair, but from close range he should hit the target, instead putting a left-foot shot wide.

  41. Post update

    KILMARNOCK 0-0 ST MIRREN

    Alexei Eremenko is becoming more influential for the home side as he picks out a fine pass for Nathan Eccleston, but the striker's shot is well saved by Mark Ridgers.

  42. Post update

    HAMILTON 2-1 ROSS COUNTY

    Jake Jervis passes up a monumental opportunity to square things up at New Douglas Park as he heads Martin Woods' cross wide at the near post. The striker has his head in hands - and so he should...

    PARTICK THISTLE 2-0 ST JOHNSTONE

    Thistle go close to extending their lead as the ball is nodded back into the danger area by Saints midfielder Murray Davidson from outside his own box, and Ryan Stevenson cracks a volley off the post.

    Queen of the South are back in front at home to Raith Rovers, with Gavin Reilly applying a close-range finish after good work from Michael Paton.

  47. Post update

    Kris Doolan heads in an early goal for Partick Thistle at home to St Johnstone. The Jags are 2-0 ahead after a barnstorming start at Firhill.

  50. Post update

    PARTICK THISTLE 2-0 ST JOHNSTONE

    Despite Thistle's blistering start it has not been all one-way traffic. David Wotherspoon in particular is looking busy, firing in a couple of corners and also drilling a low shot at goal. Saints lack the same spark Thistle started with though.

  51. GREAT SAVE!

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Hearts go close to finding an opener as Osman Sow smashes a shot from 25 yards, which Danny Rogers tips on to the underside of the crossbar. The keeper then recovers to smother at the feet of Genero Zeefuik.

  52. GOAL

    HAMILTON 2-1 ROSS COUNTY (Curran)

    Raffaele De Vita hangs an inviting cross above the six-yard line, and arriving at pace, Craig Curran rises highest to dispatch the header beyond Michael McGovern.

  57. GOAL

    PARTICK THISTLE 2-0 ST JOHNSTONE

    Is this Partick Thistle's best spell of the season? They are tearing St Johnstone apart. The hosts break through the Saints rearguard again with Ryan Stevenson's shot well saved by Alan Mannus.

  60. Post update

    KILMARNOCK 0-0 ST MIRREN

    St Mirren striker Steven Thompson is involved again, this time he is a faction away from connecting with Stevie Mallan's cutback in front of goal.

  61. Post update

    KILMARNOCK 0-0 ST MIRREN

    The visitors have started confidently and striker Stevie Thompson has two chances in front of goal, the second of which is deflected wide.

  62. GOAL

    PARTICK THISTLE 2-0 ST JOHNSTONE (Balatoni)

    It's been a storming start from the home side at Firhill! Brian Easton concedes a cheap corner and Conrad Balatoni meets it at the front post to head into the net.

  63. Post update

    Rangers are ahead at home to Livingston as Haris Vuckic finishes off a slick passing move with a neat finish.

  64. Post update

    PARTICK THISTLE 1-0 ST JOHNSTONE

    It should really be 2-0 for the home side. Kris Doolan manages to round goalkeeper Alan Mannus but, with the net gaping, he swipes a wild shot wide.

  65. Post update

    HAMILTON 1-0 ROSS COUNTY

    Panic in the Accies' penalty box as a corner floated in ricochets off several pairs of legs before County defender Scott Boyd fires over from six yards out.

    Alan Stubbs

    "We need to roll our sleeves up and win scruffy challenges - and we have done that side of the game well in recent times. We want to put on a performance but at this stage of the season the result is the important thing, the only thing."

  74. Post update

    Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson on BBC Radio Scotland

    "Expectations are always there and the players need to keep working hard. We speak every day about the next game, we don't look too far ahead. We've done well in our last two games against Dumbarton (scoring five on each occasion) but we won't get complacent because they made if difficult for us in the first game we played (a 0-0 draw).

  75. Post update

    New Rangers manager Stuart McCall on BBC Radio Scotland

    "It's been a whirlwind couple of days, really busy. I just want the boys to play with smiles on their faces and a bit of energy and passion. Put an extra yard on everything you do. The supporters aren't turning up to boo the players, they want to get behind the team and it's up to us to give them something."

  76. Post update

    CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

    Stuart McCall begins his stewardship at Rangers with a home game against bottom side Livingston. The Ibrox side are on a run of one win in their last seven matches in all competitions and trail second-placed Hibernian by five points.

    The Hibees are away to Cowdenbeath, aiming for a seventh win on the spin but it won't be easy on the heavy pitch at Central Park.

    Runaway leaders Hearts are at home to Dumbarton, having scored 10 on their last appearance at Tynecastle - and 10 in their last two games against the Sons.

    Raith Rovers may need a win at Queen of the South today if they are to stage a late run for the play-off places, with Falkirk visiting managerless Alloa at 17:30.

  77. Post update

    BBC Sportsound pundit Derek Ferguson has just described Partick Thistle striker Lyle Taylor's warm-up routine as "an absolute disgrace". The on-loan forward looks to have "spat the dummy out" before a ball is even kicked, according to our man.

    PARTICK THISTLE v ST JOHNSTONE

    The Jags' recent slump means they are now anxiously looking at the bottom three closing in, with two losses to Ross County proving particularly damaging in a run of one win in eight games.

    Alan Archibald's side are yet to beat the Saints since they returned to the top flight, with their last success coming in the second tier back in 2008.

    St Johnstone were twiddling their thumbs last weekend, which must have been frustrating following an excellent away win at Celtic.

    The Perth side were also recent winners at Tannadice but have gone three games without a victory on home turf, which has been their traditional strength in recent seasons.

    KILMARNOCK v ST MIRREN

    Killie have shown a stubborn streak since Gary Locke shifted up one place in the dugout and are on a six-game unbeaten run, although five of those have been draws.

    A home win today would boost hopes of a top-six finish, with mid-table becoming more congested.

    But St Mirren are scrapping for their lives after dropping to bottom spot.

    The Buddies have not played since last month and will be raring to go after picking up that long-awaited first home win of the season.

    HAMILTON v ROSS COUNTY

    Accies fans must be fed up reading that they are without a win since Martin Canning replaced Alex Neil as player-boss. That sorry run is up to nine games now, yet they are clinging on to a top-six place.

    Scoring goals has been a problem since Tony Andreu and Mickael Antoine Curier left in January, with Hamilton finding the net just three times since Canning took over.

    County are on the up, with four consecutive victories hauling them from bottom spot to 10th place.

    However, three of those wins have been in Dingwall and the away win they did enjoy at Partick Thistle was only their second of the season.

  84. Post update

    Former Rangers star Steven Naismith certainly thinks his old team have the right man. The Everton forward has worked with Stuart McCall in the Scotland set-up and told BBC Scotland: "He's a great man-manager. Stuart's training's very good. He can be hard, he comes across as pretty gentle and a really nice guy when he's doing press conferences, but he's got a competitive side and expects levels to be high. I think that'll be the first thing he brings to the Rangers squad: nobody will have a free pass to be playing, they'll be there on merit. He will be brutally honest, and I'm sure he'll get the team playing the right way."

    NEW McCALL GAME AT IBROX

    Stuart McCall

    Stuart McCall becomes Rangers' third manager of the season and the fixture list would appear to have been kind to the former Motherwell boss, with the Championship's bottom club Livingston visiting Ibrox.

    Can McCall repair the apparently shattered confidence in the home dressing room in time for the play-offs?

    Hearts have the league all but sown-up, while Hibernian are five points ahead in the race for second place and are ticking along very nicely.

    Good afternoon and welcome to our Scottish football coverage. We have a truncated card in the Premiership due to tomorrow's League Cup final but there is still plenty going on, particularly at the bottom end of the table.

    St Mirren, Ross County and Partick Thistle are all in search of much-needed points, while their opponents today all have much to play for.
