  9. Red card 'an awful decision'

    FT: Hamilton 0-3 Celtic

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers on Sportsound: "We were presented with a challenge going down to 10 men for the first time this season, which I thought was an awful decision by the referee.

    "Know your player, for one, and then he needs a bit of help from his linesman. Callum McGregor just jumps forward, his momentum takes him forward, he doesn’t have his foot up, and of course the player goes over. So to give him a second booking for that was a really, really bad decision.

    "The kid is hugely disappointed, but there's no fault of his on that one.

    "We went 4-3-2, still kept the shape of the team much the same, and we put on an extra striker, so that allowed us to block lines of passing, shift defensively, but always gave us a threat attacking-wise.

    "We worked on that over the course of pre-season but that’s been the first time it’s come into play, and the players deserve credit, we got a third goal and maybe could’ve had more."

    Callum McGregor is sent off
  10. Canning bemoans Hamilton display

    FT: Hamilton 0-3 Celtic

    Hamilton manager Martin Canning on Sportsound: "Against the top teams, you can't make mistakes.

    "We had possession of the ball but it was too slow, too laboured.

    "We didn't do well enough second half."

    Martin Canning

    Rangers celebrate

  17. Hapless Hibs trail

    Hibernian 0-1 Raith Rovers

    Brian McLauchlin

    BBC Sport Scotland

    Jean-Yves M'voto's first goal for Raith Rovers has completely turned this game on its head.

    For all their domination in the first half, Hibernian just cannot find their way past a determined Rovers defence. Hibs at times over-play and take one touch too many as they strive somehow to find their way through.

    This is not the Christmas present the home fans were expecting this afternoon.

    Raith Rovers celebrate

    Rangers 1-0 Inverness CT

    Into the final minute of regulation time at Ibrox and Wes Foderingham makes another impressive stop, this time tipping over an effort from Alex Fisher.

    Rangers 1-0 Inverness

    Forward Scott Boden replaces Larnell Cole in the final Inverness substitution of the match.

    Around six minutes of regulation time to go.

  20. GOAL Hamilton 0-3 Celtic

    Moussa Dembele

    Moussa Dembele applies a simple finish to net Celtic's third of the day following good work by fellow substitute James Forrest.
