  1. Until next time...

    Well, that's it for today. We'll be back on Tuesday evening with live coverage of another batch of League Cup matches. Thanks very much for joining us this afternoon.

  2. Buddies' bouncebackability

    FT Stranraer 1-4 St Mirren

    St Mirren manager Jack Ross: "We had to show good character to respond to losing the opening goal. We'll get fitter and we'll get better. There are good signs at starting the season in this manner. Gavin Reilly is an interesting player. He had his prolific spell at Queen of the South and I worked with him at Hearts. I think he had a frustrating year last year. He's had a terrific pre-season. I am pleased that he scored today."

  3. Lennon satisfied with win

    FT Hibernian 4-0 Montrose

    Hibs head coach Neil Lennon: "It was excellent, considering where we are in the start of the season. It was a very good win. The attitude of the players has been good since they came back. While it was a competitive game, in my mind it was still a pre-season. Fraser Murray scored a good goal. I'm pleased with Simon Murray. There's a lot of room for improvement but you could say that about all the players because it's so early."

  4. Staggies off to sound start

    FT Ross County 2-0 Alloa Athletic

    Jim McIntyre will be satisfied to see his Ross County players keep a clean sheet in their Group D win over Alloa in Dingwall.

  5. Robbo's delight

    FT Inverness CT 3-0 Brechin

    Inverness CT manager John Robertson: "Like every other manager today we were nervous. We are trying hard to turn things around. We've got a core from last year and we've added some exciting, athletic players to that. I'm delighted with them today - young George Oakley is a raw talent. We showed that we are a threat, especially at set plays. The pleasing aspect was the way we knocked the ball around."

  6. FULL-TIME Celtic 0-4 Lyon

    Moussa Dembele draws a blank against his countrymen as a youthful Celtic team are taken apart in the second half of their friendly against Lyon.

  7. FULL-TIME Livingston 1-1 Partick Thistle

    Livingston win 3-1 on penalties

    Veteran goalie Neil Alexander saves three of the Jags' penalties and the hosts secure a bonus point in Group H. Alexander moved from Aberdeen recently - he didn't play at all for the Dons last season.

    Livingston 1-1 Partick Thistle

    Livingston's match against Partick Thistle is going to penalties to determine who gets the bonus point.

  11. GOAL - Clyde 2-1 Annan Athletic

    Steven Swinglehurst

    We spoke too soon as the intriguingly named Steven Swinglehurst pulls a goal back for Annan in stoppage time.

    David Goodwillie

  13. GOAL - Stenhousemuir 1-3 Queen of the South

    Stephen Dobbie

  14. Well done, Gordon Reid!

  15. GOAL - Queen's Park 1-5 Motherwell

    Louis Moult

    Just minutes after being denied a brilliant goal, Louis Moult goes and scores another. A curling free-kick gets over the wall and nestles into the top right hand corner.

  16. GOAL Stenhousemuir 1-2 Queen of the South

    Shaun Rooney

    Queens come from behind to take the lead as Shaun Rooney scores against Stenhousemuir.

  17. CHAMPAGNE MOMENT

    Queen's Park 1-4 Motherwell

    It would have been goal of the season, and shows why Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is determined to add Louis Moult to his squad. The Motherwell striker flicks the ball up then turns flips his body in the air and hammers a brilliant volley into the net.

    Unfortunately the goal is ruled out.

  18. Olympique nightmare for Celtic

    Celtic 0-3 Lyon

    Quote Message: Lyon have been very good in this second half with their slick passing and their movement. Celtic have got a lot of the development kids on now but they haven't been able to get out of their own half from Scott McDonald BBC Radio Scotland pundit

  19. Starfish goalie beaten by Buchanan

    Stranraer 1-4 St Mirren

    Stranraer goalie Cameron Belford makes himself as hard to beat as he possibly can but Gregor Buchanan's header made it 4-1 to St Mirren.

    Gregor Buchanan scores the Buddies' fourth
  20. GOAL Queen's Park 1-4 Motherwell

    Ryan Bowman

    It's another long ball through the middle, and Ryan Bowman manages to lob the goalkeeper.
