    Lorne, Edinburgh: Very little credit to Hibs for finishing above the Rangers considering the mess Alan Stubbs found them in.

  4. 'I'm happy we're champions'

    Celtic manager Reonny Deila

    "We have achieved a big thing - winning the league for the fourth time - and hopefully there will be more and more," he told his club's official website.

    Celtic boss Ronny Deila

    "Defensively we have been unbelievable the whole season and we have hardly conceded a goal. Offensively we have been getting better and we scored five beautiful goals against Dundee on Friday night.

    "We have worked so hard for this and finally we are there and can start thinking of next season. There is always high pressure here and I put high demands on myself as well.

    "Today we just have to enjoy it and be happy that we are champions. I'm happy with a lot of the work we have done and we are going to enjoy this night and show we are champions next Sunday."

  7. 'We've had a title challenge'

    BBC Sportsound pundit Willie Miller

    "Celtic are deserved champions but credit too, though, to Aberdeen. But they did go down with a bit of whimper today.

    "We've had a title challenge, and until today, it's been the Celtic games [between the sides] that have proved the difference."

  8. Morton marching on...

    Greenock Morton won Scottish League One and promotion to the Championship after defeating Peterhead.

    Morton started the day top, level on points with Forfar Athletic but with a superior goal difference.

    However, the Greenock side fell behind to Gary McDonald's effort before Peterhead's Scott Ross was sent off.

    Michael Miller, Mark Russell and Declan McManus netted for Morton and they took the title by two points after Ayr beat Forfar and Stranraer finished second.

    BBC Sport

    Only the kitchen sink hasn't been thrown at @dundeeunitedfc by @AberdeenFC so far but Utd still lead 1-0 with a minute left + stoppage time...

  20. GOAL

    Airdrie 3-2 Dunfermline (McHugh)

  21. Dundee United 1-0 Aberdeen

    The Dons pass up a gilt-edged chance. The free-kick comes across the face of the goal and finds Ash Taylor at the back post, but he somehow contrives to head into the side netting...

  22. Dundee United 1-0 Aberdeen

    It's untidy stuff in both boxes. The ball bounces around the United box but no-one in white can finish, then United break on the counter attack and goalkeeper Scott Brown has to race out quickly to make the challenge with his defence all at sea.

  23. GOAL

    St Johnstone 1-1 Inverness CT (Graham)

    Tam Scobbie tees up a lovely cross and Brian Graham is there to power home a header and equalise for St Johnstone in Perth. Game on!

  24. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 2-0 St Mirren (Doolan)

    Thistle all but banish their relegation fears with a second goal. Kris Doolan is the man on target for Alan Archibald's troops.

  25. GOAL

    Annan Athletic 3-3 Montrose (Campbell)

  26. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 2-3 Hamilton (Kiltie)

    A lifeline for Kilmarnock as Greg Kiltie heads home their second goal of the afternoon. The hosts trail 3-2 at Rugby Park; can they find a late equaliser?

  27. Motherwell 1-1 Ross County

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland

    Scott Boyd gets a vital challenge in to deny Stephen Pearson as he burst through on goal. Motherwell claimed for a penalty but Crawford Allan deemed it a fair challenge. Then Conor Grant fires in another powerful shot from distance, but County scramble it clear.

    BBC Sport Scotland

    Ryan Stevenson's goal could guarantee the Jags' status in the top flight for next season.

  31. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 1-3 Hamilton (Hasselbaink)

    Pint-sized striker Nigel Hasselbaink extends Accies' lead, firing home from close range with the hosts claiming, unsuccessfully, for a foul on goalkeeper Craig Samson.

  32. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 1-0 St Mirren (Stevenson)

    Ryan Stevenson opens the scoring at Firhill and, with his seventh goal of the season, it could prove a costly goal to concede for relegation-threatened St Mirren...

  33. Motherwell 1-1 Ross County

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland

    Conor Grant tests Mark Brown from distance. The keeper almost allows the powerful drive to spill from his grasp but just clings on with three Motherwell players waiting to pounce.

  34. GOAL

    Kilmarnock 1-2 Hamilton (MacKinnon)

    Accies take the lead at Rugby Park as Darian MacKinnon finds the net with a superb drive from outside the box.

  37. Motherwell 1-1 Ross County

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland

    Michael Gardyne rather scuffs a shot at goal but George Long still has to look lively down to his right to prevent County taking the lead. Motherwell need to be testing the keeper at the other end.

  38. Dundee United 1-0 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen are on top at Tannadice as they seek an equaliser. Niall McGinn has a deflected effort that spins into the hands of Radoslaw Cierzniak, then Willo Flood drives a ball across goal but the United defence manage to get it clear.

  39. GOAL

    St Johnstone 0-1 Inverness CT (Doran)

    Inverness break the deadlock at McDiarmid Park as Aaron Doran fires home after good work by David Raven.

  40. Clearance charged down

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland

    St Mirren's Steven Thompson almost makes the most of a mix-up between Conrad Balatoni and Jags goalkeeper Scott Fox, the latter's clearance being charged down by Thompson and spinning wide.

    Alasdair Lamont

    Liam Boyce levels for County and silences the home crowd.

    Aberdeen's Peter Pawlett has failed to recover from a nasty head knock and is replaced by Cammy Smith.

  59. Partick Thistle 0-0 St Mirren

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Firhill

    "St Mirren still trying to settle into this contest as Partick Thistle enjoy the bulk of possession in the opening 20 minutes. Lyle Taylor's low shot wide for the hosts is the best and only real chance at Firhill so far, although Ryan Stevenson nearly managed to knock one in and Steven Lawless followed up with an effort wide."

  60. GOAL

    Motherwell 1-0 Ross County (McDonald)

    Scott McDonald creeps in at the far post to give the Steelmen what could be a crucial lead against Ross County.

  61. Motherwell 0-0 Ross County

    Motherwell started the brighter at Fir Park but Ross County are beginning to come more into it now. BBC Scotland's Chick Young describes a "nervous" atmosphere in Lanarkshire with so much at stake.

  62. GOAL

    Dundee Utd 1-0 Aberdeen (Muirhead)

    Robbie Muirhead's first goal for Dundee United puts them ahead against Aberdeen. The former Kilmarnock player ran on to John Souttar's pass and took his time before finishing well.

  77. Bottom of the table

    Scottish Premiership bottom six

    At the bottom, there is precious little margin for error for St Mirren to avoid relegation with four games to go.

    The only team the Buddies can catch are Motherwell, who are seven points ahead of them in 11th place in the table. They look like they will be dragged into the Premiership play-offs against the team to emerge from the play-off matches between Hibernian, Rangers and Queen of the South in the Championship.

  78. Top of the table

    Scottish Premiership top six
  79. Focus turns to the Premiership

    If Aberdeen fail to beat Dundee United then Celtic will be crowned chamipons.

    The Dons have secured at least second spot, but third place and a guarantee of qualifying games for the Europa League has yet to be decided.

    Inverness CT, St Johnstone and Dundee United can all still clinch that spot, with John Hughes' third-placed team in the strongest position.

  80. 'Recruit over the summer'

    Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson

    "My job is now to recruit over the summer and try to get us ready for next season. We're stepping up to a higher level and we'll have to be ready for it."

  81. Championship fate

    Cowdenbeath are relegated and Alloa will aim to safely negotiate the play-offs to ensure their Championship status. Livingston live to fight another day, and season, in the Chamionship.

  82. Hearts celebrate

    Liam McLeod

    Football Commentator, BBC Scotland

    "They will celebrate tonight and look forward to next season's Premiership campaign."

  83. CHAMPAGNE MOMENT

    Hearts owner Ann Budge ventures out onto the Tynecastle pitch with the Championship trophy. To tumultuous applause from the Hearts fans, skipper Danny Wilson holds the trophy aloft.

    Director of football Craig Levein, sporting a beaming smile, looks on.

  84. 'Enjoy our time off'

    Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

    "We did really well in the game and we knew the score in the Rangers game."

    Asked if he had a preference who they face in the play-off? "No, we'll enjoy our time off and prepare the players for the game, whether it's against Rangers or Queen of the South. We'll be ready."

  85. Hearts deliver again

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland

    Hearts manage to find something, even when they're not at their best. They dominated much of the second half but I thought Rangers were going to hang on.

    A bit of quality at the end saw Hearts salvage a draw; and we've seen that often this season.

  86. Play-off picture emerging

    Third-placed Rangers will play Queens on 9 and 17 May with the semi-final dates set for 20 and 23 May.

    The final, which will feature the team finishing second bottom of the Premiership, will be played on 28 and 31 May.

  92. GOAL

    Hearts 1-2 Rangers (Zeefuik)

  117. GOAL

    Falkirk 0-2 Hibs (Cummings)

    Jason Cummings doubles Hibs' lead with a simple finish from close range. Alan Stubbs's men are motoring on...

  118. GOAL

    Hearts 0-2 Rangers (Miller)

    Now, then. Kenny Miller fires home from close range to double Rangers' lead. However, the Hearts fans are in uproar. The hosts were hollering for a penalty as Cammy Bell appeared to clip Osman Sow in the box as the striker looked to round the keeper, but referee Calum Murray was uninterested.

    Hearts boss Robbie Neilson is spoken to by the referee; Tynecastle is at boiling point...

  119. 'Increasingly dangerous'

    BBC Sportsound pundit Murdo MacLeod

    "Hibs will be looking to get a second goal because Falkirk are looking increasingly dangerous at the other end."

  120. Alloa 1-0 Cowdenbeath

    Liam Buchanan denied again after some last ditch defending from Cowdenbeath. It's still one way traffic for Alloa.

  125. Alloa 1-0 Cowdenbeath

    Liam Buchanan almost makes it two after taking the through ball on the bounce, but Cowdenbeath goalkeeper Robbie Thomson touches it wide for a corner. Only one team in it just now...

  126. Hearts 0-0 Rangers

  127. YELLOW CARD

    Hearts striker Osman Sow, with the kind of tumble Willem Dafoe would've blushed at in the film Platoon, earns a booking for simulation as he collapses under the close attention of Marius Zaliukas.

    Referee Calum Murray brandishes the yellow card with aplomb.

  128. Hearts pressure

    Hearts skipper Danny Wilson looks to head home from a corner but the Rangers defence does just enough to put the defender off his stride. Another corner for the hosts, but Stuart McCall's men hold firm.

  129. Rangers press

    After weathering some early Hearts pressure, Rangers venture forward and veteran marksman Kenny Miller, free on the left, drags a shot wide of the Hearts goal.

    It remains goalless at Tynecastle after 15 minutes but the game is bubbling away nicely.

  130. Bairns respond

    Falkirk have come roaring back after falling behind to that early Martin Boyle goal but Hibs' lead remains intact.

    Alloa 1-0 Cowdenbeath (Chopra)

    Michael Chopra fires home from close range, his first for the club in what could be his last game.

  132. GREAT SAVE!

    What a chance! What a save! Jamie Walker collects a superb through ball from Pallardo as Hearts slice through the Rangers rearguard but Walker's effort is brilliantly saved by the on-rushing Cammy Bell.

  133. Hearts can't capitalise

    Hearts fail to profit from the set piece after that foul on Jamie Walker; Tynecastle, though, is rocking. What an atmosphere.

  134. GOAL

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibs (Martin Boyle)

    Hibs draw first blood as Martin Boyle surges into the box and arrows a superb shot into the bottom corner. "Hibs are in a really strong position for second spot now," says our man Rob Maclean.

  135. YELLOW CARD

    Rangers hitman Haris Vuckic earns the first yellow card of the day at Tynecastle after chopping down Jamie Walker as he slalomed towards the Rangers goal.

    Free kick in a promising position for the hosts.

  136. Let battle commence

    Football Commentator, BBC Scotland

    "Huge, huge games today in the Championship...."

  137. Hearts v Rangers

    A breathless start at Tynecastle, where the Hearts fans are in party mood, as the ball is fizzing about the pitch as both sides aim to settle.

  138. Hang onto your hats...

  140. 'Really exciting'

    Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

    "From a fans' point of view, it's really exciting. With the way social media's going, we'll hear a lot of oohs and aahs..."

    We thought the Hibs boss was going to break into the Gina G classic Ooh Aah Just A Little Bit.

  141. Rangers skipper on the bench

    Rangers manager Stuart McCall, who publicly supported captain Lee McCulloch recently amid booing from some Rangers fans, has dropped the veteran to the bench.

    "That [booing] had no part in my thinking," McCall has just told BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound.

    "He's been fantastic with the lads; he's more than happy to play a part: in the dressing room and on the bench."

  144. SPFL/Tickets story - Your views

    You've been discussing the SPFL/tickets story on our Facebook page.

    Michael Watson: Not that it's any of my business! But the new board's worth a job or two. Can't it not just let everyone in and pay the SPFL the difference? Or not! Either way nothing to do with me.

    Alistair Miller: Queens were not against charging for the play offs. Why Rangers, who are a team recovering from financial difficulties, wants to allow fans in for nothing defeats me. It doesn't seem logical at all.

    Steven Cairney: Double standards as they let Hibs do it last year for season ticket holders in their play-off against Hamilton. The SPFL just make things up as they go along proven by the Meekings debacle.

    Paul MacBeath: Could they not then just charge £1, and give away a "free" raffle ticket to get around that?

    Derek Scott: Out of order SPFL! if they done that for Hibs last year should do the same this year ... maybe HIBS, RANGERS and QOS should all boycott games and play in empty ground to protest against SPFL decision.

  146. Ticket issue

    Some football news to bring you this morning...

    The Scottish Professional Football League have told Rangers they cannot let Ibrox season-ticket holders into the play-offs for free.

    Rangers supporters

    Rangers and Motherwell had both stated their intention to follow Hibs' lead from their home play-off last season.

    On that occasion the Easter Road side were informed by the league that the rule breach would not be prosecuted.

    However, SPFL Chairman Ralph Topping said: "Our rule book is not a pick and mix."

    Falkirk v Hibs

    Livingston v Queen of the South

  149. Championship calculations

    The Championship firecrackers get under way at 12:15 today. What will Hearts and Rangers have in store?

    Hearts v Rangers

    Hearts have won the league comfortably and at the top of the table the only issue to be played for is who comes second and awaits the winner of the play-off matches between the third- and fourth-placed teams.

    The winner of those play-off games then take on the team finishing 11th in the Premiership over two legs for a place in the top tier next season.

    Hibernian will finish second if they beat Falkirk or by bettering or matching however many points Rangers get away to Hearts.

    Rangers will finish second if they win and Hibs do not.

    If Rangers draw and Hibs lose, Hibs will be second by virtue of superior goal difference - unless Rangers and Hearts drew 0-0 and Falkirk beat Hibs 5-0, in which case points, goal difference, goals for and goals against would be identical.

    In that case, Hibs would finish second by dint of having a better record in their head-to-head meetings with the Ibrox side.

    At the other end of the table one of Cowdenbeath, Livingston and Alloa will finish bottom and be relegated automatically.

    Another one of the three clubs will finish second bottom and enter a play-off for a Championship place against the winner of the play-offs in League One.

  150. Look to the skies...

    There is much to play for in all four divisions as the teams prepare for crucial top-six matches in the Scottish Premiership and the final round of games in the Championship, League One and League Two.
