  2. 'We were in charge' - McInnes

    FT: St Johnstone 0-3 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "I think if we said prior to the game we would get another clean sheet and another three points we would have taken that, but to score three goals and have created numerous chances at a place like St Johnstone, we’ve got to be pleased with our work.

    "All of sudden, we’ve got good confidence about our performance.

    "I thought it was a very professional performance.

    "I thought that was a fair reflection on the game because I thought we were in charge for a lot of the game and it’s not always the case here."

  7. Rangers 'fortuitous', admits Murty

    FT: Hibernian 1-2 Rangers

    Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty talking to RangersTV: "I didn’t enjoy that, I have to say.

    "We endured a lot of pressure. We were very passive at times. We were really slack with the ball, didn’t move it, or deal with it well enough.

    "But we stood up to a good team putting lots of balls in our box and playing some good stuff.

    "I thought the only good passages of play we had in the first half we scored from.

    "[The goals] changed my half-time team talk considerably.

    "Danny Wilson came in, not ranting and raving, but firmly said, 'We’re lucky because we haven’t started yet'.

    "We were far too reactive to what Hibs were doing. We didn’t manage to impose a style on the game. All over the pitch, we were a little bit lose.

    "But, when you come to places like this, you have to endure pressure, sometimes you have to ride your luck. And we walk away with three fortuitous points, I would say."

    Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty
  8. We got the reaction we wanted - Archibald

    FT: Partick Thistle 3-2 Motherwell

    Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald was a relieved man after his side earned a first win since late October and only their third in the Premiership this season.

    "I was delighted with the first-half performance, we got the reaction we were looking for," he told BBC Radio Scotland after his side raced into a 3-0 lead.

    "We went a bit more direct and it worked. We had real energy and drive and Martin Woods was key to that. Him going off probably didn't help.

    "We knew what was coming in the second half; Motherwell have done that a couple of times this season.

    "The boys were well warned, but they didn't get out the blocks. But I am delighted to get the win and the three points."

  9. One-minute period killed Accies - Canning

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Hamilton Academical

    Hamilton Academical manager Martin Canning was philosophical about the defeat by the Premiership leaders.

    "I thought we performed well and obviously at 1-1 a one-minute period killed us in terms of the game as we were 3-1 down," he said.

    "But, even in the second half, one goal back and it would have been game back on and we had two or three real good chances where we could have quite easily scored.

    "The boys worked hard, the shape was good and we created chances.

    "I would have just liked us to take one of those chances and put a bit of pressure on.

    "We competed around the park and limited Celtic to not a lot and their chances were strikes from distance."

  10. 'Same old same old' for Saints

    FT: St Johnstone 0-3 Aberdeen

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright on BBC Radio Scotland: "It’s same old, same old.

    "I'm like a broken record. We’ve got to do better. We’ve got to do better in that first goal. We allow Aberdeen to get possession off the throw-in too easily.

    "We get sucked to the ball and leave a player of Rooney's calibre free in the box. That can't happen. It can’t. And that’s down to people not taking responsibility.

    "Taking nothing away from Aberdeen. They're a good side, but too often I coming out to say the same things – we’re making silly mistakes.

    "We’ve just had a good chat in there about it. It’s almost as if we’ve lost a wee bit of what we’re about. Not belief.

    "I know managers at big clubs used to say to me that they used to hate coming here and used to hate playing against us.

    "You could argue that you maybe want to be playing against us this season."

  11. 'I could have taken them all off' - Robinson

    FT: Partick Thistle 3-2 Motherwell

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson on BBC Radio Scotland: "If you make individual errors like we did in the first half, you are going to lose football matches, it is as simple as that.

    "How the free-kick goes in for the first goal, I have got no idea.

    "The second goal, we have good possession and give it away. The third one, Carl [McHugh] gets knocked off the ball.

    "Bar Elliott Frear and the forwards, I could have taken them all off at half-time.

    "We showed character in the second half and had goals disallowed, but if you give a team a 3-0 start, you are always going to be up against it."

  12. Rodgers happy to come through 'test'

    FT: Celtic 3-1 Hamilton Academical

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was "very pleased" with his side's victory.

    "Hamilton have shown why they have gone to Ibrox and other places and won games," he told BBC Scotland.

    "It was always going to be a test and I think we came through it.

    "We tried something different tonight in our formation and it worked well for us with three goals.

    "At this time of the season, when games are coming thick and fast, it was a good win.

    "If we had been more clinical, we would have been further ahead."

    Meanwhile, Rodgers picked out midfielder Olivier Ntcham, who opened the scoring, and Kristoffer Ajer, the 19-year-old playing in an unfamiliar right-back role, for particular praise.

  13. 'It's a clear penalty' - Lennon

    Ft: Hibernian 1-2 Rangers

    "It [David Bates controlling the ball in the box] is a clear penalty, it's a clear handball," Hibernian boss Neil Lennon tells Sportsound.

    "I'm not going to be here talking about referees because we were sensational tonight and thoroughly deserved to get something out of the game. I can't believe we've lost it."

    "It's one that's got away from us really. It's tough to take but I've got to take a lot of enjoyment, pride and satisfaction from what was a scintillating second half. Our two wingers were unplayable."

  14. Hibs 'unlucky with penalty'

    FT: Hibernian 1-2 Rangers

    Tom English

    Chief sports writer, BBC Scotland at Easter Road

    "In the first half and the start of the second half, Hibs had three good chances and they didn't take any of them. Simon Murray missed an absolute sitter; then they got unlucky with two Barker efforts off the woodwork.

    "Then they got very unlucky with the penalty, which should've been given - which was as obvious as the nose on my face. And the referee hasn't given it."

  15. Old Firm records

    Celtic extend their unbeaten domestic run to 69 games; Graeme Murty has steered Rangers to four consecutive wins.
