  5. Post update

    Queen of the South manager James Fowler

    "I think the players can be pleased with their performance. We can go there [Ibrox] and get a result. If we can get the first goal, it makes it really interesting."

    Queen of the South 1-2 Rangers

    Rangers hold the advantage going into the Scottish Premiership play-off quarter-final second leg. Dean Shiels' header was the winning goal on the night and the two sides will meet again at Ibrox at week on Sunday.

  8. Post update

    Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell kicks the ball out of play so team-mate Richard Foster can receive treatment.

    And now Iain Russell replaces Lewis Kidd for Queen of the South.

  12. Post update

    Another change for Rangers. Former Queens striker Nicky Clark takes over from Haris Vuckic.

  13. Post update

    How will Queens respond to falling behind again? They had Rangers rattled and looked the more likely to get a winner until that Dean Shiels goal.

  14. GOAL

    Queen of the South 1-2 Rangers (Shiels)

    After weathering the storm, Rangers move upfield and Richard Foster's lovely dinked cross is headed past Zander Clark by Dean Shiels.

  15. Post update

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Palmerston

    "Queens cannot be suppressed. Their resilient spirit has allowed them to reclaim ownership of this game as well as the equaliser. They are lively and full of intent, and it is Rangers who now need to regroup.

    "A moment of boldness, or a moment of haplessness, might yet see one of these teams carry an advantage into the second leg. For now, they are slugging out a fascinating encounter."

  16. Post update

    Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell falls awkwardly after making a clearance and needs treatment from his physio before carrying on.

  18. YELLOW CARD

    This match is heating up. Danny Carmichael tries to jink his way past Richard Foster and the Rangers full-back cynically takes the Queens man out. Booking for Foster.

  19. GREAT SAVE!

    Queen of the South 1-1 Rangers

    Kevin Holt cuts in from the left and tries to bend a shot high past Cammy Bell but the Rangers goalkeeper stretches out a hand to make an important save.

  20. Post update

    Midway through the second half now. Will either side be able to take a lead to Ibrox for the second leg?

  21. YELLOW CARD

    Gavin Reilly spins away from Marius Zaliukas and is then tripped by the defender, prompting a yellow card for the Rangers defender.

  22. Post update

    That was poor marking from Rangers and a couple of bodies fell over as the delivery came in. The tie is level again.

  23. GOAL

    Queen of the South 1-1 Rangers (Lyle)

    The hosts are level with Derek Lyle left unmarked at the back post to simply nod home Ian McShane's inswinging corner.

  24. Post update

    Now Rangers are forced into a change. Goalscorer Steven Smith pulls up, possibly with cramp, and he goes off to be replaced by Robbie Crawford.

  25. Post update

    Mark Millar replaces Stephen McKenna for Queen of the South.

  26. Post update

    Image caption: Steven Smith (far right) gave Rangers the lead before the break
  27. Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Game going from end to end at the moment. Stephen McKenna headed wide for the hosts at a corner before Nicky Law sent a looping header into the hands of Queens goalkeeper Zander Clark.

  28. CLOSE!

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Rangers press at the start of the second half with Kenny Miller's curled shot kept out by Zander Clark and then Stevn Smith's chip is headed clear near the goal line.

  29. KICK-OFF

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    The second half resumes with Queen of the South kicking off.

  30. Post update

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Palmerston

    "A precious lead for Rangers late in the first-half half, but also a cause for Queens to feel aggrieved since they contested the award of the free-kick that Steven Smith converted.

    "That might provide an added motivation for the second half, and Rangers are likely to try to maintain their lead rather than add to it, so the play will remain evenly contested.

    "At this stage, the next goal is crucial in terms of the overall state of the tie. Which team will now hold its nerve?"

  31. HALF-TIME

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers

    Rangers have the advantage at the break courtesy of that wonderful Steven Smith free-kick but Queen of the South feel aggrieved about the lack of a foul in their favour in the build up to the goal.

  32. Post update

    The Queen of the South players are unhappy they did not get a free-kick just before Haris Vuckic went down, feeling the Rangers midfielder himself had been guilty of an infringement.

  33. GOAL

    Queen of the South 0-1 Rangers (Smith)

    Rangers are awarded a free-kick after Haris Vuckic is felled and Steven Smith superbly curls the ball powerfully over the wall and into the net via the underside of the crossbar.

  34. Tweet using #bbcscotfootball

    Tony: "Rangers playing well. QOS cautious so far #bbcscotfootball"

  35. Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Marius Zaliukas clatters into the back of Gavin Reilly after both leap to head the ball and Queens have a free-kick. Lewis Kidd tries a shot but it comes back off the wall and the danger is soon cleared.

  36. Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Now the hosts have a go and Derek Lyle lifts an effort into the hands of Cammy Bell in the Rangers goal.

  37. Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Andy Murdoch fires a long-range shot at the Queens goal and keeper Zander Clark claims at the second attempt.

  38. Post update

    Former Rangers player Derek Ferguson

    "Rangers have shown good discipline. It's the runners from the middle of the park that have caused Queens problems."

  39. Post update

    Ian McShane and Haris Vuckic
    Image caption: Haris Vuckic holds off Queen of the South's Ian McShane
  40. Post update

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Palmerston

    "Having matched up with Queens in terms of shape, with a back three and five in midfield, Rangers have also adopted their hosts' tactics. They are hitting Queens on the break, trying to spring Kenny Miller and Haris Vuckic beyond the back line.

    "The home side are doing the same with Derek Lyle and Gavin Reilly, and it is the Rangers defence that has tended to contain the most alarmed figures in Marius Zaliukas - whenever the ball is near him - and Lee Wallace if the ball is played over his head.

    "The game is still, though, finely and tensely balanced. Both sides are focused on not conceding."

  41. Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Around 25 minutes in and it's still goalless. Still a sense that these sides are sizing each other up in their fifth meeting this term.

  42. Post update

    Kenny Miller playing for Rangers against Queen of the South
    Image caption: This strike by Kenny Miller ended in the net but only after the Rangers striker had been flagged offside.
  43. Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Queens coming back into the game now with some dangerous crosses into the box that have made for some nervous defending from Rangers.

  44. Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    This is a decent spell for the visitors and Dean Shiels tests Zander Clark with a low shot from the left side of the box.

  45. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Kenny Miller finds the net for Rangers but he had already been flagged offside after running on to a long ball.

  46. Visitors press

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Haris Vuckic runs on to a pass in the inside left channel and drags a left-foot shot wide of the Queens goal.

  47. Post update

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Palmerston

    "The pressure is all on the visitors at Palmerston, with Rangers having lost 2-0 and 3-0 here this season. They may even play cautiously in this play-off first leg, which would be a reflection of their state of mind.

    "Queens are solid in defence and dangerous up front, relying on counter attacks to overcome opponents. Should Queens score first, the psychology of the tie will be critical, since Rangers may react with even greater anxiety."

  48. Early chance

    Queen of the South 0-0 Rangers

    Derek Lyle gets up to meet Kevin Holt's cross with a header and Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell dives to his left to save.

  49. KICK-OFF

    Queen of the South v Rangers

    The game at Palmerston is underway with Rangers kicking off in the Dumfries sunshine.

  50. Pass the baton...

  69. 'Great work' by Partick

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland, at New Douglas Park

    Stephen O'Donnell sweeps in his fifth goal of the season to break the deadlock here!

    Great work down the right-hand side by Kallum Higginbotham and the Englishman cuts back for O'Donnell to side-foot past Accies goalkeeper Michael McGovern.

  70. GOAL

    Alloa 0-1 Brechin (Trouten)

  71. Ross County 1-1 St Mirren

    How are Saints surviving? Liam Boyce is denied by Jason Naismith, then Tony Dingwall should score only for a great save from Mark Ridgers.

  72. GOAL

    Hamilton 0-1 Partick (O'Donnell)

    Thistle break the deadlock at New Douglas Park as Stephen O'Donnell fires home with a howitzer.

  73. GOAL

    St Johnstone 1-1 Dundee United (Davidson)

    St Johnstone restore parity with a stunning, absolutely stunning goal! Murray Davidson volleys home Danny Swanson's centre from 16 yards. What a strike.

  74. Ross County 1-1 St Mirren

    Don't be surprised to see Liam Boyce walking around Dingwall this evening with his head in his hands, as he passes up yet another good chance. Michael Gardyne also shoots wide as the hosts continue to dominate, but on the counter attack James Dayton nearly scores.

  75. Dundee 0-1 Inverness CT

    It's all getting a bit untidy at Dens Park, with the goalmouth incidents drying up and play punctuated by a series of niggling fouls.

  76. 'Terrific move'

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland, at McDiarmid Park

    United have the breakthrough after a terrific move down the right. Robbie Muirhead meets the cross but his header crashes off the bar, only for John Rankin to follow up to bundle the ball over the line.

  77. Ross County 1-1 St Mirren

    It's constant pressure from the home side now and Jackson Irvine heads over, then Martin Woods sees his shot blocked by Jason Naismith.

  78. GOAL

    St Johnstone 0-1 Dundee Utd (Rankin)

    We have the breakthrough in Perth. United boost their hopes of securing a European spot as combative midfielder John Rankin lashes the ball home from close range following good work by Chris Erskine.

  79. Hamilton 0-0 Partick

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland

    We're still searching for a goal here and the first 15 minutes of the second half hasn't suggested much will change soon.

    So let me tell you instead that next to Hamilton Accies' club reception, a Turkish barber has opened. That must be a football first.

  80. PENALTY APPEAL

    Ross County 1-1 St Mirren

    Ross County feel they should have a penalty. Jackson Irvine smashes a shot at goal that hits the hand of a defender, but referee Steven MacLean, for the second time in a matter of weeks involving a side from the Highlands, says it is not intentional.

  81. CLOSE!

    Danny Swanson plays in David Wotherspoon on the right hand side of the box but he rushes his shot and fires wide.

  82. GOAL

    Stranraer 1-1 Forfar (Swankie pen)

  83. Ross County 1-1 St Mirren

    Jon Souttar booked for a foul on David Wotherspoon, and it's a free kick to St Johnstone. But the hosts fail to profit as frustration grows in Perth. It remains goalless at McDiarmid Park.

  87. St Mirren's future 'can be bright'

    As we heard on BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound earlier, Gary Teale wants to remain at St Mirren next season as they attempt get back into the top flight.

    "I've got the passion and the motivation to take the club forward if that's the route the board take," he said.

    St Mirren boss Gary Teale

    "We've just not had a consistent run of results as we tried to get out of it.

    "You look at Hearts and the squad they've been able to build this year after the experience of relegation - and Hibs to a certain extent. They have managed to regroup.

    "I'm looking for the younger players to show me what they've got, to see if they can handle it.

    "I'll be encouraging these guys coming into the team and if they can express themselves, that will show the fans that the future can be bright."

  88. Dundee 0-1 Inverness CT

    Dundee break at pace against a back-pedalling Inverness rearguard but Jim McAlister's final shot is feeble and easily gathered by Ryan Esson.

  89. St Johnstone 0-0 Dundee Utd

    Dundee United have started the second 45 brightly and Nadir Ciftci drags his shot wide after a promising, flowing move by the visitors.

    We're still waiting for our first goal in Perth.

  90. KICK-OFF

    Here we go across the grounds for the second half...

  96. MISSED PENALTY

    Dundee United have goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak to thank as he saves Dave Mackay's penalty - that's his fourth penalty save of the season.

    The hosts were awarded the spot kick after Callum Morris was adjudged to have fouled Michale O'Halloran.

    Top work!

  97. Ross County 1-1 St Mirren

    Liam Boyce is again holding his head in his hands feeling he should have scored. This time his header is too high as Ross County shake off the loss of a goal to continue dominating.

  100. Hamilton 0-0 Partick

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland

    Partick Thistle have had better chances here in South Lanarkshire, with Lyle Taylor blasting well over when put clean through by Kallum Higginbotham, then Higginbotham himself having a nice chip which almost found Michael McGovern's top corner.

    Thistle's Ryan Stevenson has gone off injured and his replacement is Gary Fraser.

  101. GOAL

    Ross County 1-1 St Mirren (Mallan)

    Out of nothing Saints are level. Stephen Mallan's long range shot takes a wicked deflection off Scott Boyd and flies into the net.

  102. County call

    Martin Woods fired Ross County in front, with the side's first penalty of the season, to break the deadlock against the Buddies.

    Martin Woods
  103. St Johnstone 0-0 Dundee Utd

    Danny Swanson is played in on the left in the box, but fires wide from a great position. It remains goalless in Perth; come on boys, give us a goal!

  104. Ross County 1-0 St Mirren

    A great last ditch challenge from Jason Naismith denies Craig Curran as Ross County nearly go 2-0 up. Relegated St Mirren are toiling now after looking fairly comfortable for the first 30 minutes.

  105. Dundee 0-1 Inverness CT

    A bobbling cross from Edward Ofere is missed by a defender and in comes Marley Watkins at the back post forcing Kyle Letheren to make a brave sprawling save at the forward's feet.

  106. GOAL

    Ross County 1-0 St Mirren (Woods)

    Jim McIntyre urged his players to deliver a performance in Dingwall today and they're answering the challenge head on. Martin Woods makes no mistake from the spot to break the deadlock against the stricken Buddies.

  107. PENALTY

    Spot kick for Ross County as Liam Boyce is felled in the box...

  108. Hamilton 0-0 Partick

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland

    Partick Thistle have had better chances here in South Lanarkshire, with Lyle Taylor blasting well over when put clean through by Kallum Higginbotham.

  109. Dundee 0-1 Inverness CT

    Dundee striker Greg Stewart finds some room in behind the visitors' defence and his powerful shot from a tight angle is pushed away by Ryan Esson.

  110. PENALTY APPEAL

    Hamilton striker Dougie Imrie appeals unsuccessfully for a penalty as he takes a tumble in the box. He's raging with referee Stephen Finnie but nothing doing...

  111. Dundee 0-1 Inverness CT

    Inverness squander a great chance to double their lead as Ryan Christie surges forward and lays a pass off for Marley Watkins but the forward's touch in the box is heavy, allowing Paul McGinn time to make a brave sliding challenge.

  112. YELLOW CARD

    Dundee United defender Jaroslaw Fojut is booked for a foul on Michael O'Halloran on the touchline....first yellow card of the game.

  113. Ross County 0-0 St Mirren

    It is nearly a nightmare minute for St Mirren's Thomas Reilly. He gives away a free-kick, is booked, and then from the resulting free-kick gets his boot to the ball and almost deflects it into his own net.

  114. Dundee 0-1 Inverness CT

    Dundee are denied an equaliser as Greg Stewart's looping header is hooked off the line in athletic fashion by a diving Danny Devine.

  115. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland

    Nadir Ciftci produces a moment of sublime skill and technique, coming so close to an opening goal. He shows quick feet to step away from two St Johnstone challenges and then, from 30 yards, with very little backlift, rifles a drive goalwards only for the ball to ricochet to safety off the post. Brilliant stuff!

  116. Hamilton 0-0 Partick

  119. Ross County 0-0 St Mirren

    Saint striker Steven Thompson and County's Liam Boyce have had half chances at either end, but the game is yet to spark into life.

  120. Injury at New Douglas Park

    An injury concern for Hamilton's Mikey Devlin, who is being tended to by both his own physio as well as the Partick Thistle counterpart after picking up an injury...

    Alasdair Lamont

    St Johnstone should be ahead here. Firstly, Michael O'Halloran cuts it back for David Wotherspoon who scoops over the bar from an excellent position. Then Steven MacLean heads just wide from a corner as the home side make a good start to the game.

  124. GOAL

    Stenhousemuir 1-0 East Fife (Miller)

    Kieran Miller has given Stenhousemuir the edge over East Fife in the Scottish League One play-off semi-final second leg. Stenny lead 1-0 on the day and 2-1 on aggregate.

  125. St Johnstone 0-0 Dundee Utd

    Tommy Wright's men have come roaring out of the traps and O'Halloran is the dangerman again, this time playing in David Wotherspoon who balloons a shot over the bar.

  126. Saints pressing

    St Johnstone striker Michael O'Halloran spurns a great chance to break the deadlock at McDiarmid Park, delaying a shot before his cross fails to trouble the United defence.

    There's a bumper edition of Sportscene today, kicking off at 15:00 and running until 17:10. You can watch it on BBC One Scotland and here via the 'Live Coverage' tab.

    Also available there are the BBC Radio Scotland 810MW commentary of Ross County v St Mirren and Sportsound - Open all Mics, which is also on 92-95FM.

    And we'll offer updates on all today's games on our live text commentary.

  135. Hamilton v Partick

    Kenny Crawford at New Douglas Park

    BBC Sport Scotland

    There's no such thing as a 'dead rubber'... Hamilton Accies and Partick Thistle have already secured their Premiership safety for next season, but there's still the matter of who finishes in seventh.

    Accies are five points ahead of eighth-placed Thistle at the moment, but a Jags win today keeps their hopes of a higher place alive - and £45,000 more SPFL prize money.

    Both sides come into this in good form, Accies after two consecutive wins and Thistle with three victories on the bounce.

  136. 'Always a sore one'

    St Mirren boss Gary Teale on relegation and his future

    "It's always a sore one to take. Sometimes you need to take a step back to take two forward. You look at the way Hearts have done it.

    "It's been a disappointing season but we need to show a performance, especially for those who have travelled up here today.

    St Mirren boss Gary Teale

    "We want the boys to give a good account of themselves over the next three games."

    Adding that he does want to remain in charge of St Mirren, Teale adds: "Nothing at all... [talks over his future] it may be a conversation for next week."

  137. St Johnstone v Dundee Utd

    BBC Scotland

    Both sides' chances of catching Inverness CT in third are miniscule but the battle for fourth still matters for several reasons, not least the European place it would bring if Caley Thistle win the Scottish Cup.

    St Johnstone, unbeaten in three, make one change from last weekend's draw with ICT, Gary Miller dropping to the bench to be replaced by Frazer Wright. United, who've won just one in four, bring in Sean Dillon, Callum Morris and Chris Erskine for Ryan McGowan, Charlie Telfer and Blair Spittal.

  140. MacPherson open to Buddies return

    BBC Scotland

    Gus MacPherson has told BBC Scotland he would be interested in the St Mirren job, should it become available in the summer.

    Gary Teale is currently in charge of the Buddies, whose relegation from the top flight was confirmed on Friday.

    Gus MacPherson

    MacPherson, manager of the Paisley club from 2003 until 2010, left after being told his contract was not being renewed.

    The 46-year-old is currently in charge of Queen's Park who are in the League Two play-offs.

    MacPherson still harbours ambitions to manage at a higher level and that he is confident in his ability to do so.

    "I'm only 46 and I know I could do it," he said.

    "I'd always be respectful; they'd have to make an official approach. But we're under contract here."

  141. 'Three points are a must'

    BBC Sportsound pundit John Robertson

    "At this stage of the season, three points are a must. Everything that Jim McIntyre said [see 14:08] there is spot on. The last thing he needs today is for St Mirren to leave Dingwall with three points..."

  142. Instability costly for Buddies - Gillies

    Uncertainty over St Mirren's future contributed to their relegation from the Premiership, according to former Buddies midfielder Ricky Gillies.

    Motherwell's win 3-1 at home to Kilmarnock on Friday consigned the Buddies to the Championship next term.

    St Mirren's John McGinn reflects on the Buddies' season

    "There's a lot of instability within the club," Gillies told BBC Scotland.

    "The club has been up for sale [for several years], and that's something I thought would've been sorted out last summer."

  143. 'We can remain in the division'

    Ross County boss Jim McIntyre

    "Last night's a great result for Motherwell but nothing we can influence. All we can do today is try to pick up three points.

    "We want to keep a clean sheet and hopefully score; we'll take three points, that's the main thing.

    Ross County boss Jim McIntyre

    "We've got every confidence we can remain in the division - we just have to finish it."

  145. State of play in the Premiership...

    Should Inverness win they will seal third place in the table and with it a place in Europe regardless of other results.

    However, if St Johnstone and Dundee United were to draw, then Inverness would only require a point against Dundee at Dens Park.

    There's a three-way tussle to avoid 11th place and a play-off with a team from the Championship. Motherwell are three behind Kilmarnock, who they beat last night, and Ross County.

    County can take a big step towards safety with a win at home against the Buddies today but, with two games remaining, will not quite be there.

    In short: plenty to play for and get our teeth into!

    Motherwell's victory against Kilmarnock last night sealed St Mirren's fate to send the Buddies down form the top flight.

    The race for third place in the Scottish Premiership and the battle to avoid the dreaded play-offs intensifies.
