    St Johnstone 2-0 St Mirren

    St Johnstone 2-0 St Mirren

    It has been mostly St Mirren for the past five minutes, but without any real opportunities created. The home side break on the counter attack and David Wotherspoon's shot is just off target.

    Substitute James Keatings adds a bit of gloss to the scoreline with his first major contribution, finishing well after racing through on goal.

    St Johnstone 2-0 St Mirren

    A terrific save from Alan Mannus denies the visitors a foothold in the game. Steven Thompson gets the shot away from right in front of goal but the goalkeeper pushes it over the bar.


    St Johnstone are strengthening their position in the Scottish Premiership's top six, moving above Hamilton Academical into fifth place.

    Inverness Caledonian Thistle, though drawing just now, look likely to extend their lead over fourth-place Dundee United to eight points.

    St Mirren's situation at the bottom looks ever more perilous - they remain four points behind Motherwell.

    Steven Lawless plays in Kris Doolan but the Partick Thistle striker dithers on the ball and when he finally gets a shot away it's deflected wide.

    Hearts well on their way now. Genero Zeefuik gets the break of the ball off Jamie Walker's cross and finishes well.

    Celtic 3-0 Dundee United

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "Nasty challenge from Paul Paton, who was bemoaning Celtic's influence over officials this week, on Gary Mackay-Steven. A booking for the United player and a free-kick on the right-hand side of the box, which is played by Stefan Johansen into the path of Virgil van Dijk. The Dutchman's shot is partially blocked and falls to Jason Denayer, who back-heels into the net from a couple of yards. Too easy for Celtic."


    Partick Thistle 0-0 Inverness CT

    Not much to get excited about at Firhil in the opening 45 minutes.


    Ross County 1-0 Kilmarnock

    County ahead at the break through Michael Gardyne.

  56. GOAL

    Celtic 3-0 Dundee United (Denayer)

    A free-kick into the United box causes more havoc for the visitors and Jason Denayer back-heels into the net.


    St Johnstone 1-0 St Mirren

    It has been mostly one-way traffic in the first half and all aimed towards St Mirren's goal, but Brian Graham has only taken one of his five chances and that means the points are still not safe.

  58. CLOSE!

    Celtic 2-0 Dundee United

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "Nearly three for Celtic as Stuart Armstrong bursts down the right, pulls the ball into the path of Stefan Johansen whose shot is superbly saved by Radoslaw Cierzniak and Gary Mackay-Steven smacks the rebound off the outside of the post. It's one-way traffic here."


    Partick Thistle 0-0 Inverness CT

    James Craigen finds some room behind the Inverness defence but his drilled shot from the left is pushed round the near post by goalkeeper Ryan Esson.

  64. GOAL

    Celtic 2-0 Dundee United (Guidetti)

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "Celtic have been looking comfortable all match and they've now established a two-goal lead as Gary Mackay-Steven lays the ball into the path of John Guidetti who, from 20 yards, fires the ball past Cierzniak with the aid of a deflection off John Souttar."

  65. GOAL

    St Johnstone 1-0 St Mirren (Graham)

    At the fifth time of asking Brian Graham finds the net. A long ball forward gets stuck between his legs, but he manages to put it past goalkeeper Mark Ridgers.

  66. GOAL

    Falkirk 0-1 Hearts (Walker)

    Osman Sow sets up Jamie Walker to put Hearts in front. The Scottish Championship leaders are closing in on the title.

  67. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 St Mirren

    If St Mirren manage to avoid relegation, they may wish to thank Brian Graham. The striker again passes up a chance, this time failing to direct his header on target from close range.

  68. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Inverness CT

    Marley Watkins ripped Thistle to pieces in the first half when Inverness CT were last at Firhill in the Scottish Cup but the home side are not giving the forward much room to use his pace today.

  69. GOAL

    Ross County 1-0 Kilmarnock (Gardyne)

    Michael Gardyne latches on to Liam Boyce's headed pass and strikes powerfully into the net from 15 yards.

  70. CLOSE!

    St Johnstone 0-0 St Mirren

    Much better play from Gary Teale's men as they start to venture forward. Alan Gow finds space on the right and feeds the ball through towards Steven Thompson who can't quite connect.

    However, a minute later and Brian Graham has another opportunity for the home, curling an effort just wide.

    Brian Graham has been in the thick of things for St Johnstone against St Mirren so far today.

    Brian Graham and Jason Naismith

    St Johnstone 0-0 St Mirren

    Brian Graham lashes a shot off the hand of St Mirren's Jim Goodwin and claims for a penalty, which the referee waves away. Only Graham claimed for it, presumably everyone else in agreement it was ball to hand rather than the other way around.

  74. Post update

    Celtic 1-0 Dundee United

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "Well that was always likely to happen wasn't it? Gary Mackay-Steven picks the ball up about 25 yards from goal in the inside-right position and rifles a dipping shot past a couple of bodies and in at Radoslaw Cierzniak's far post. No celebration from GMS against his former club but plenty of celebrations from the home fans."

  75. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Inverness CT

    A fine passage of passing from Inverness ends with Ryan Christie throwing himself at a Josh Meekings cross but his header is saved comfortably by Scott Fox.

  76. GOAL

    Celtic 1-0 Dundee United (Mackay-Steven)

    Gary Mackay-Steven scores against his former club by taking the goalkeeper by surprise with a shot through a ruck of players to give the Premiership leaders the advantage.

  77. Post update

    St Johnstone 0-0 St Mirren

    Brian Graham passes up another opportunity as the home side continue to press. The ball is passed to him yards from goal but he plays it straight to the goalkeeper. In his defence, it was from a very tight angle

  78. CLOSE!

    Celtic 0-0 Dundee United

    Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong lifts a 23-yard shot over the crossbar against his former club.

  79. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-0 Inverness CT

    Lots of patient probing for Partick Thistle as the visitors pack men behind the ball, waiting for an opportunity to spring lone striker Marley Watkins into action.

  80. CLOSE!

    St Johnstone 0-0 St Mirren

    Brian Graham gets himself in between two defenders and heads just wide for St Johnstone who have started the better team.

  90. Celtic v Dundee United

    Scottish Premiership

    These two may be heartily sick of the sight of each other, with this their fourth meeting in 14 days.

    Celtic have the upper hand, with comfortable victories in the League Cup final and Scottish Cup replay, with United only ahead in the red card count, four to two.

    Celtic midfielders Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong

    United have not won at Celtic Park for 23 years and have really struggled since Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong were sold to today's hosts, with Stranraer the only side they have beaten since January.

    Leaders Celtic can stretch their lead over Aberdeen to five points.

  91. Post update

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland at Celtic Park

    "Ronny Deila says it's 'stupid' to suggest Celtic get the benefit of refereeing decisions more than other clubs, as a couple of United players have this week.

    "Both managers have stressed the need to keep 22 players on the park today, with six players having been sent off in the three games between the sides in the last two weeks.

    "Deila completely changes his front four for this match, with James Forrest, Kris Commons, Anthony Stokes and Leigh Griffiths replaced by Gary Mackay-Steven, Stefan Johansen, Stuart Armstrong and John Guidetti.

    "As Jackie McNamara seeks to reverse his side's fortunes against Celtic, he brings Paul Dixon, John Souttar and Charlie Telfer in for Callum Morris, Chris Erskine and Ryan Dow."

  92. Partick Thistle v Inverness CT

    Scottish Premiership

    The Jags appear to have arrested their winter slump, with two excellent victories against Dundee United and St Johnstone either side of a loss to Ross County.

    Alan Archibald's side were 2-0 up inside nine minutes last weekend and have enjoyed two hefty league wins against today's opponents, although Caley Thistle triumphed at Firhill on Scottish Cup duty last month.

    Two draws and a defeat in their last three Premiership outings has contributed to the Highlanders losing touch with second-placed Aberdeen.

  93. Ross County v Kilmarnock

    Scottish Premiershp

    This fixture has cast up two away wins so far this season and looks tough to call, with both sides ticking along nicely.

    County were six points adrift at the bottom following a heavy loss at Aberdeen in early February but a splendid run of four wins and a draw has propelled Jim McIntyre's side up to 10th spot.

    Killie are unbeaten in seven matches and last weekend's late win against St Mirren has rekindled hopes of a top-six finish.

    Interim boss Gary Locke has tightened up the Rugby Park defence in recent weeks, conceding one goal in their last three matches.

  94. St Johnstone v St Mirren

    Scottish Premiership

    St Mirren are in danger of being cut adrift at the bottom, with Motherwell and Ross County gathering momentum, so a repeat of October's win at McDiarmid Park would come in very handy.

    Losing a late goal at Rugby Park last weekend was a kick in the teeth, leading to a 20th loss of the season for Gary Teale's men.

    St Johnstone were well and truly steamrollered at Firhill last Saturday and were lucky to only lose 3-0, which was strange coming after their success at Celtic Park.

    With Hamilton in freefall, Saints can move up to fifth with a win but the visitors are sure to be in the mood for a scrap.

  95. Scottish Championship

    Hearts v Falkirk

    Hearts can move within one result of the title with a win at Falkirk but they will have to overcome the team that inflicted their only league defeat of the season.

    The Bairns were 3-2 winners at Tynecastle in January, knocking the runaway leaders off their stride with a high-tempo pressing game.

    Queen of the South can close to within two points of third-placed Rangers if they beat Cowdenbeath at Palmerston, with bottom club Livingston at home to Dumbarton and Raith Rovers host Alloa.


    Celtic: Gordon, Ambrose, Denayer, van Dijk, Izaguirre, Biton, Brown, Mackay-Steven, Johansen, Armstrong, Guidetti. Subs: Scepovic, Commons, Zaluska, Griffiths, Fisher, Forrest, Henderson.

    Aberdeen hit the front. Andy Drivers slips a pass through to Adam Rooney inside the box and the prolific striker just gets his shot away as Dundee defenders close in, lifting it into the net.

    Finally a shot at goal. Stephen McGinn drives at the Aberdeen defence, space opens up for him and he drags a low shot just wide of Jamie Langfield's goal.


    Paul McGowan gets in behind the Aberdeen defence and is closed down by goalkeeper Jamie Langfield, who leaps to force the ball away while coming into the collision with the Dundee man, knocking him over. Shouts from the home crowd but no spot-kick.

    Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes highlighted before kick-off the amount of goals there had been between the sides so far this season. Will there be more today??

    An early Aberdeen free-kick comes to nothing as the sun beats down at Dens Park.

    A win for Aberdeen today would take them level on points with Premiership leaders Celtic, at least until later today.

    Should Dundee win, they will move into the top six before the table could change depending on the 15:00 GMT matches.

  135. KICK-OFF

    Aberdeen get the match underway.
