  1. Goodbye

    Plenty of talking points following another pulsating night of Scottish Premiership action.

    Supporters of Hamilton and Kilmarnock were left cooling their heels after a late postponement.


    Thanks for your company tonight. Highlights of all tonight's games and THAT decision at Tynecastle will be available at our website later. Cheers.

  2. Dons win 'as good as any at home this season'

    FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Partick Thistle

    Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes on BBC Radio Scotland: "An early goal could have changed the dynamic of the game but I thought Partick were set up really well; they had a game plan to nullify us.

    "At half-time we told the players not to get frustrated. Conditions were really difficult, the wind was playing havoc all night and the pitch was a bit slippy. But we tried to change things tactically and get Ryan Christie and Graeme Shinnie making those runs forward.

    "The goal was fantastic. Ryan was bright as a button and showed real quality to lay it on a plate for Adam.

    "It's as good as any three points we have had here this season. The conditions were horrible but the players have got the reward for a lot of hard work. It wasn't slick like the Hibs game, but it is still three points and I am really pleased with the clean sheet."

  3. Jack in a brace and a doubt for Old Firm game

    FT: Rangers 2-0 Motherwell

    Rangers manager Graeme Murty: "There were parts I liked and parts that really irritated me. We can be better if we learn the lessons from this one.

    "We had a couple of clearcut opportunities where we could have been more clinical, but centre-forwards keep getting in the right area.

    "It’s a work in progress, we’re moving towards where we want to be, but wins at this stage of the season push us on.

    "[Jack’s injury] looked awful, but we need to be calm and let our medical staff assess him. He’s in a brace at the moment and we’ll look at him tomorrow. You’d have to say he is [a doubt for Saturday against Celtic]."

  4. Controversial penalty decision in Dingwall

    FT: Ross County 1-1 St Johnstone

    Tommy Wright talking to BBC Radio Scotland: "We only have ourselves, probably, to blame. I did think we played well. Probably didn't work their keeper enough. We got into as many good opportunities as they did but they made more of them and worked our keeper more than we did.

    "I think the penalty decision, and I've seen it back, I don’t see how he can be 100% that it’s inside the box. Chris Millar shouldn’t go to ground, he knows that, and he probably makes it easier for the referee. But the view he has of it. Chris’ feet & body never go inside the box so I don’t know how he can possibly have touched the player in there if his body and feet stay outside the box.

    "It’s a good point. I always feel if you come away with something here it’s always a good point. I thought we played well. I thought it was a cracking game and both teams tried to win the game and were still trying to win the game at the end."

  5. 'We should've won the game' - Coyle

    FT: Ross County 1-1 St Johnstone

    Ross County manager Owen Coyle: "The performances haven't been bad but it was a horrendous start. A minute into the game, a throw-in down the side and we've been caught cold - that's not acceptable. From that, I think we huffed and puffed a bit. We were a shadow of ourselves in the first half; but second half we were outstanding and should've won the game. I think St Johnstone will feel very lucky to leave with a point."

  6. 'Maybe we got a wee break' - Levein

    FT: Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    Hears manager Craig Levein: "It wasn't one for the purists was it? There wasn't an awful lot happened in the game but there was plenty of effort from both teams. I thought that Hibs edged the first half - and I believe that the chance they had when they hit the bar was over the line - and we maybe got a wee break there.

    "But in the second half I thought we were the better side and Kyle [Lafferty] has missed a fantastic chance inside the six-yard box that he'd normally put away.

    "And that was about the sum of the goal attempts, there wasn't an awful lot more than that. There are a lot of positives to take from the game. It was a typical blood and thunder derby."

  7. 'Catastrophic error by officials'

    FT: Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    Tom English

    Chief sports writer, BBC Scotland at Tynecastle

    "I agree completely with Neil Lennon in terms of the goal. It was a goal and a catastrophic error by the officials and it's changed the game completely.

    "If Hibs go 1-0 up there then it's a different game. It's a mistake that shouldn't be made. He has every right to be incandescent with rage, I think any one of us would be in his position.

    "They did battle, so did Hearts. Hearts are programmed to battle and that's why they're keeping a load of clean sheets and why they're not losing games - no defeat in eight.

    "They can play that game of football all day and all night long. Hibs were forcing the issue and trying to play but they just weren't good enough, on the night, on this pitch, to break down what is becoming a very resolute Hearts defence."

  8. 'It was a goal' - Lennon

    FT: Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    Hibernian boss Neil Lennon: "It's a goal, it should've been given. That's really poor. We can all see it where we're sitting, and the linesman, who gave every offside in the first half, didn't see the most important call and that's poor, that's really poor.

    "[Referee] Steven McLean had a chat with me afterwards because I was incandescent with rage. The way the ball comes down, it's got to be a goal. It doesn't bounce straight down, it spins back out. Everyone can see it's a goal.

    Hibernian manager Neil Lennon

    "It's another huge call. It's getting embarrassing, and I think we've got good officials in this country, but it just makes a mockery of the game sometimes here.

    "Goals change games, especially in derbies. You get the first goal in a derby, 70-80% of the time you're going to go on and win it.

    "We should have three points instead of one - that might cost us as the season goes on.

    "It's a gluepot of a pitch, it's impossible to play football, we saw what happened to Celtic when they tried. We came here to be hard to beat. I don't think my goalkeeper had a save to make, defensively we were superb. There was a lot of talk about what was going to happen to us coming into the game but we were by far the better team."

  9. FULL-TIME Rangers 2-0 Motherwell


    Rangers 2-0 Motherwell

    Three minutes of added time at Ibrox.

  11. FULL-TIME Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    Hibernian manager Neil Lennon salutes the away supporters inside Tynecastle, before exchanging a view words with the fans on the Oli Shaw effort wrongly ruled out. A rueful shake of the head from manager and supporters alike.

  12. FULL-TIME Aberdeen 1-0 Partick Thistle

    Willie Miller

    Former Aberdeen defender on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: The second half was much better for the Dons and over the 90 minutes, they were well worth their victory. Thistle had no chances whatsoever in the second half, they were barely up the park and I don't think they can have any complaints.
  13. FULL-TIME Ross County 1-1 St Johnstone


    Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    Hearts are roaring for a penalty for a handball in the box by Lewis Stevenson but referee Steven McLean is having none of it.

    The Jambos are up in arms!

  15. Hearts press for winner

    Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    Jamie Walker slaloms past a couple of Hibernian challenges before the visiting defence bring a promising run to a halt.

  16. Hibs spurn chance

    Hearts 0-0 Hibernian

    Hibernian substitute Simon Murray spurns the chance to be the hero as he curls an effort high over Jon McLaughlin's bar.

    Are we destined to see the Edinburgh derby end goalless?

  17. GOAL Rangers 2-0 Motherwell

    Alfredo Morelos

    Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos converts from inside the penalty area, after beating the offside trap on his way through on goal. Done and dusted for Graeme Murty's troops?
