  1. Post update

    Phew, what a second-half goalfest that was. And hopefully all those league permutations made more sense to you than they did me. I'm off to have a lie down. Join us again tomorrow for a more sedate, one-match live text as Premiership leaders face Dundee United.

    History made

    The first-ever SPFL play-off between the Highland League champions Brora Rangers and Edinburgh City ended all square at Meadowbank Stadium. Former Slavia Sofia striker Ortega Deniran gave City the lead after 57 minutes, but Martin McLean equalised for Brora with 11 minutes remaining. All to play for in the Highlands next weekend as they battle to face Montrose in the play-off final.

  3. Post update

    Frisky Fifers

    In League Two, East Fife have almost secured the final promotion play-off spot after their 3-0 defeat of Berwick Rangers. Elgin City's hopes ended with an amazing 5-4 home defeat by Annan Athletic, who need to win their final game and hope that East Fife lose heavily on the final day to reach the play-offs.

  4. Post update

    Brechin in play-offs

    Brechin City secured their promotion play-off place in League One after coming from two goals behind to draw away to Stenhousemuir. That result means that Stenny drop to second bottom and face the prospect of a relegation play-off after being overtaken by Ayr United after their 4-0 hammering of already doomed Stirling Albion.

  5. Post update

    League Two tussle at top

    In League Two, the headlines are that Forfar take over at the top after dismantling disintegrating Dunfermline 3-1 at East End Park. However, Stranraer and Greenock Morton, who started the day first and second, have the chance to go to the top themselves as they face one another in the game just kicked off, with the action live on BBC Alba.

  6. St Mirren manager Gary Teale on BBC Radio Scotland

    St Mirren 4-1 Kilmarnock

    "It was excellent. The players take a lot of credit.

    "We will keep trying the best we can, we still have the belief and you never know.

    "Everybody writing us off, the shackles were off and I told them to play with that freedom.

    "With some of the young boys coming in, we had that bit of enthusiasm.

    "Hopefully we can get four wins and we'll see where that takes us."

  7. Post update

    Livi lifeline

    At the bottom of the Championship, everything is going Livingston's way after their 4-0 hammering of Raith Rovers, Alloa's defeat by Hibs and Hearts' late winner away to Cowdenbeath. Livi are now off the bottom, ahead of Alloa on goal difference and a point behind the Blue Brazil, with their two rivals facing one another next weekend as Livi host Queen of the South.

  8. Post update

    Championship play-offs

    Queen of the South's 2-1 win over Dumbarton secures the Dumfries side's place in the play-offs. At the moment, it looks like they will face Rangers in that two-leg affair.

  9. Post update

    Championship play-offs

    At the top of the Championship, Hibs climb to second by hammering Alloa 4-1 and a win at Falkirk would secure their place in the play-off semi-final. Rangers are now third after their disappointing 2-2 draw at home to the Bairns and Stuart McCall's side need to win away to Hearts next weekend and hope Hibs slip up if they are to move back into second.

  10. Post update

    St Mirren 4-1 Kilmarnock

    Kilmarnock could yet be dragged into the relegation play-off place and remain seven points ahead of second-bottom Motherwell after that 4-1 hammering by St Mirren. The bottom-of-the-table Buddies have suddenly come to life, but it is likely to have come too late, although they do edge to within seven points of Well after that excellent victory.

  11. Post update

    Ross County 1-2 Partick Thistle

    Partick Thistle leapfrog Kilmarnock into eighth place and that 2-1 win in Dingwall looks to have secured the Glasgow side's place in the Premiership next season.

  12. Post update

    Ross County 1-2 Partick Thistle

    Ross County's nine-game unbeaten run comes to an end in a performance that was devoid of ideas and of few chances for the home side. The Dingwall outfit are six points ahead of second-bottom Motherwell and that could give some renewed hope for the side who lost at Hamilton last night as they look to avoid a play-off place.

  13. Post update

    Dundee 0-2 St Johnstone

    That defeat for Inverness allows St Johnstone to move to within four points of the side sitting third in the table after the Perth side's 2-0 win at Dundee. The Saints have leapfrogged Dundee United, who are away to leaders Celtic tomorrow, while Dundee's dream of Europa League qualification seems to have disappeared and Paul Hartley's side remain in sixth.

  14. Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland

    Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1-2 Aberdeen

    "We knew the significance of winning today, but it will take an absolute collapse for Celtic not to win the title now.

    "Inverness showed exactly whey they have been so consistent.

    "They were excellent in the first half and our goalkeeper has done well to keep us in it.

    "The conditions benefited the team with the wind and we showed the desire and will to win we've had this season.

    "At no point did I think we were going to lose the game because I know the boys."

  15. Inverness manager John Hughes on BBC Radio Scotland

    "I feel for the boys. We were good entertainment today and it just wasn't to be.

    "I thought we were the better side in the first half and would go on and win it after taking the lead.

    "But that's what Aberdeen have got. Their status demands that they dig it out.

    "They always seem to be able to pip us at the post."

    Alan Steele: "Game over for Motherwell - don't fancy any of the three in the play-offs."

    John Dorward: "Josh Meekings was booked in last league game against Celtic. Seems it was a one-game ban due today from the totting up of six yellows. Yogi plays a banned player." Oh dear, the Meekings saga continues and it might have an unhappy ending for Caley Thistle.

  68. Post update

    Former St Mirren midfielder Billy Davies is in the stand in Paisley. However, the former Nottingham Forest boss gave a strong "no comment" to reporter Kenny Crawford when approached about his interest in today's game. Davies has, of course, been linked with the job at St Mirren should Gary Teale not be kept on beyond the summer as boss.

    It seems that Caley Thistle are going to go ahead with playing Josh Meekings in defence despite him being on the SFA list of suspensions. They are confident that he is not banned even though they appear to have not had clarification from the governing body.

  86. Post update

    St Mirren v Kilmarnock

    St Mirren manager Gary Teale says midfielder John McGinn suffered an injury in training on Thursday and it seems to be knee/thigh related.

    After Motherwell's defeat, Teale says "you never know" what could happen as they hope to make up the gap at the bottom and avoid relegation. He hopes his side are energised by that.

    Brora return to the scene of their 3-2 Scottish Cup fourth-round win in November. Edinburgh, 21 points clear at the top of their league, warmed up with a 5-1 win over Selkirk, while Brora, who are 14 points clear at the top of the Highland League, had a 2-0 win over Rothes to stretch their unbeaten league run.

  98. Post update

    Don't forget that history is being made at Meadowbank Stadium, where Edinburgh City host Brora Rangers in the first leg of the first-ever play-off for a place in the Scottish Professional Football League. The Lowland League champions will travel north for the second leg against their Highland League counterparts next Saturday. The aggregate winners will take on Montrose, who have already finished bottom of League Two, in another two-leg play-off.

  99. Post update

    In League Two, East Fife have a chance of securing the final play-off spot - if the Fifers defeat Berwick Rangers and Elgin City and Annan Athletic draw. However, Elgin and Annan can move into fourth with victories if the Fifers lose to Berwick, who themselves still have an outside chance of a play-off spot.

  100. Post update

    Fourth-placed Brechin City will make sure of at least a play-off place with a point or more against Stenhousemuir. Even if City lose, Airdrieonians must win away to Peterhead to keep their own hopes alive until the final game.

    Returning to League One, a win for Morton over leaders Stranraer will take them top of the table, while Forfar can also go top of the pile if they win at East End Park while the other two draw.

  102. Falkirk manager Peter Houston on BBC Radio Scotland

    Back to the Championship for a moment, Falkirk boss Peter Houston has told BBC Scotland's Chick Young that he is not unhappy that Josh Meekings is free to play against his side in the Scottish Cup final.

    "For me, it would be 100% wrong if action had been taken for a hand ball after the game," he said.

    "For him to miss it because of that, I would have been gutted for the lad."

  103. Post update

    In League One, leaders Stranraer can clinch the title and the one automatic promotion spot if they defeat second-top Greenock Morton and third-placed Forfar Athletic lose away to Dunfermline Athletic.

  104. Post update

    At the other end of the Championship table, Livingston will be consigned to at least a play-off to avoid relegation if Cowdenbeath beat Hearts and Alloa defeat Hibs, although those are unlikely scenarios. However, Livi will move above Alloa and off the bottom of the table if they win away to Raith Rovers and the Wasps lose at Easter Road.

    Queen of the South will all but secure their place in the play-offs with at least a point at home to Dumbarton. If the Doonhamers slip up, Falkirk must win their next two games, away to Rangers today and then at home to Hibs, to retain hope of finishing fourth above the Dumfries oufit.

    Down in the Championship, Hibernian must avoid defeat against relegation-threatened Alloa Athletic to retain any hope of preventing Rangers finish second should the Ibrox side defeat Falkirk. The Edinburgh side can overtake Rangers if they win and the Glasgow outfit slip up at home to the Bairns.

    Ross County v Partick Thistle

    In the bottom six, Ross County host Partick Thistle looking to continue their fine run and move further clear of a play-off pace. A win for the Dingwall side and they would leapfrog the Glasgow side, who themselves are not clear of relegation trouble.

    Dundee v St Johnstone

    In the other top-six Premiership game, Dundee host St Johnstone in the race for Europa League qualification places. Sixth-top Dundee can move to within a point of today's opponents with a victory, while Saints can leapfrog Dundee United.

    Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Aberdeen

    "The boys have been outstanding, to get into the top six again and a national cup final.

    "The case against Josh Meekings put a wee dampener on it, but once he got the decision and was back at training, we were back to business.

    "There was justice done. With retrospective action, I thought England were going to get back in that World Cup for Maradona's hand ball.

    "It was obvious the SFA could not going to win the case, so why did they go through with it?

    "With the luck Josh is carrying, I wouldn't be surprised if he scored today.

    "Aberdeen are an excellent team and, if we are to have any chance of catching them, we have to win today."

    St Mirren v Kilmarnock

    With second-bottom Motherwell having lost 2-0 last night at Hamilton, St Mirren might just be rethinking the mood of acceptance around the Paisley club about their relegation fate. A win over Killie and they will move to within seven points of Ian Baraclough's stuttering side with four games remaining. Could an unlikely great escape start today?

    Give us your thoughts on that and any other issues during another controversial week in Scottish football.

    "As if St Mirren's problems are not numerous enough at the bottom of the Premiership, we can reveal that midfielder John McGinn will miss their match against Kilmarnock through injury. It's not yet been confirmed what the problem is, but he has arrived at the stadium in Paisley on crutches."

    Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Aberdeen

    Inverness are definitely battling the statistical gods, with Aberdeen unbeaten in six games and seeking their third straight victory. The Dons are unbeaten in their last three visits to Caledonian Stadium and are looking for their fourth consecutive win this season over Caley Thistle, who have not beaten Aberdeen in their last five meetings.

    Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Aberdeen

    How will Inverness Caley Thistle players react after the high of their Scottish Cup semi-final victory over Celtic - and the low of having Josh Meekings all over the back pages as he faced a potential suspension for a controversial hand ball missed by the match officials? Of course, the Englishman won his case and is clear to play in the final, but one wonders what his frame of mind - and that of fellow defender Gary Warren, who will miss out at Hampden through suspension - might be for today against Aberdeen.

    With leaders Celtic playing Dundee United for the umpteenth time this season tomorrow, the Premiership focus falls on Aberdeen. The Dons still have a chance of the title itself, of course, but they can secure at least second place with a draw or better away to third-placed Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

    Hello and welcome to what is, these days, an abnormally late start to the Scottish football action on a Saturday. Don't worry, there was no long lie for the wicked and I've been up with the dawn chorus trying to work out the various permutations as we reach the concluding stages of the promotion and relegation battles in the four senior leagues.
