  1. Goodbye

    So, Aberdeen spurn the chance to leapfrog Celtic and move clear at the top of the table despite a pulsating comeback against Inverness CT. Liam Boyce fires a hat-trick as Ross County thump Dundee, while Kilmarnock earn a much-needed victory at Hamilton to go some way to easing concerns over their recent poor form. 

    Thanks for your company this afternoon. We're back tomorrow for the small matter of Hearts v Celtic at Tynecastle.

    Hope you can join us then. Cheers. 

  2. Locke's festive cheer

    Hamilton 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Gary Locke's turkey leftovers will taste a little sweeter this evening after his Kilmarnock side picked up their first win in over two months with victory at Hamilton.

    “It meant a lot," he told BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound. "Obviously it’s been a difficult week for us, especially after last week, but I thought the boys did great. We moved the ball well, created numerous chances and we’re delighted to get three points. 

    "The boys have knuckled down, they’ve worked hard and they’ve responded today. I’m delighted for our supporters because I’m well aware that we have been very inconsistent.”

  3. Buddies Boxing Day nightmare

    St Mirren 1-4 Livingston

    St Mirren boss Alex Rae is in no doubt regarding the magnitude of the job he has taken on after his side were thumped at home by Livingston.

    “Some of the goals and the manner which we gave them away were extremely poor," he said. "That was our nearest rivals today and they’ve given us a right good hiding. There seemed to be a bit of fear factor about us. We need to overcome that because nobody else is going to help us do that.”

  4. Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes

    Aberdeen 2-2 Inverness CT

    "First half you need to credit Inverness. They sat in and tried to hit us on the counter attack. Our choice of passing was sometimes playing into their hands. "we lost a goal which was disappointing and we had it all to do at the start of the second half. 

    "We asked for more patience and thought to our play.We lose a penalty at the start of the second half but it's not a penalty for me. I think the boy has jumped into Paul Quinn.

    "At 2-0 it looks like it's going against us but my players never gave up and they deserve so much credit. Another five minutes and we win the game; we should get a penalty with the last kick of the ball. We had them on the ropes..."

  6. Inverness boss John Hughes

    Aberdeen 2-2 Inverness CT

    "I knew there was going to be a game on here and I respect Aberdeen. They're a wonderful side and resurgent at this moment in time.

    "To come here and ensure they had to work very hard to get a draw, all credit to my boys. I'm disappointed to lose a two-goal lead but I have to give credit where it's due: in the second half it was all Aberdeen.

    "Throughout the game I thought we had the better chances. We should've seen it out..."

  13. FULL-TIME Hamilton 0-1 Kimarnock

    A huge three points for Kilmarnock, their first league victory since 24 October. They remain in the relegation play-off spot, but make some ground on the teams above them, and put some more daylight between themselves and Dundee United at the bottom. 

    As for Accies, it's now just one win in 10 matches.

    It's a five-star show from a rampant Ross County as the razor-sharp Liam Boyce completes his hat-trick with County's fifth goal; the hosts are on fire as Dundee's defence melts in the face of constant pressure...  .

  19. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Aberdeen are pounding the Inverness CT goal without mercy. Kenny McLean thunders in a howitzer of a shot from distances that comes back off the bar! 

    Inverness still lead but for how long?

  20. You little Rascal...

    BBC Sportsound pundit Allan Preston roared over the wireless there and sounded like Dizzee Rascal on his Fix Up, Look Sharp hit.

    It's all happening this afternoon...
