Boyd does the business for Killie

FT: Rangers 0-1 Kilmarnock

Kris Boyd's winning goal at Ibrox was the Kilmarnock's 20th of the season in all competitions.

The Ayrshire side are just six points behind fourth-placed Hibs with eight games left.

When Lee McCulloch stood down in October, Killie had gone eight league matches without a victory.

Dons boss content with 'solid win'

FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes talking to BBC Scotland:

"We had two or three good opportunities to add to the goal. I'd like to see the disallowed Stevie May goal again.

"Bearing in mind the conditions, bearing in mind the pitch, that's as good as we can play once we went in front. It's another step towards where we want to be.

"It was good solid win and we've had loads like that in my time here. At this time of year, just getting the job done, keeping a clean sheet, never looking like losing a goal."

Rangers lacked belief - Murty

FT: Rangers 0-1 Kilmarnock

Manager Graeme Murty talking to Rangers TV:

"I don't think we deserved to lose but we didn't do enough to win.

"We lost too many first and second balls, we were second to too many breakdowns and, as always, if you don't take your chances, it makes it very difficult.

"We needed to be sharper and move the ball better than we did. Kilmarnock are very well organised, very compact and they make it difficult for you.

"We needed to hold on to a belief that we could get something out of the game and that was possibly lacking."

Thistle need to graft - Archibald

FT: Hearts 3-0 Partick Thistle

Partick Thistle boss Alan Archibald talking to BBC Scotland:

"It's all about the first half. We didn't start well and we lost terrible goals. It's so disappointing after keeping a clean sheet last week.

"We thought we had turned a corner in terms of team shape but it's hard to get your front players on the ball when you are giving goals away.

"We just need to work hard. It's still in our own hands to get out of the mess we're in."

County spirit impresses Ferguson

FT: Ross County 2-2 Hamilton

Ross County co-manager Steven Ferguson talking to BBC Scotland:

"If we play like that for the remainder of the season, we will be in the mix.

"Anybody at the game saw a group of players who were giving their all. They conducted themselves fantastically well and showed a togetherness and spirit but there was a five minutes spell that turned the game on its head.

"Saying that, I thought we showed great character in turning it back round and we were the team trying to win the game.

"We look at the positives and we gained a point today on some of the teams above us."

Aberdeen 'always comfortable'

FT: Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Willie Miller

Former Aberdeen defender on BBC Sportsound

Once Aberdeen scored, there was only one team in it. They had three or four opportunities in the second half and always looked comfortable

Honest Men open a gap - for now

In League One, Ayr United pulled three points clear of Raith Rovers at the top of the table with a 2-0 win at Forfar.

The Kirkcaldy side entertain East Fife in the Fife derby tomorrow in a match you can see on BBC Alba.

Saints go marching on

The story is much clearer in the Championship, with St Mirren now 12 points in front after a 3-1 victory away to Queen of the South.

Livingston, Dundee United and Morton all drew today.

Montrose move clear

Lewis Milne scored a late winner as Montrose came from 2-1 down to win at home against to nearest rivals Peterhead.

It leaves the Links Park side three points ahead at the top of League Two with a game in hand.

Levein pleased with strong start

FT: Hearts 3-0 Partick Thistle

Hearts manager Craig Levein talking to BBC Sportsound:

"We've been starting games fairly slowly, so it was important to do that today.

"We didn't quite keep that level up in the second half but I didn't feel we were in any danger at any point.

"I've been there myself as a player when you know the points are in the bag."

Tight race for second

FT: Rangers 0-1 Kilmarnock

That's back-to-back home defeats for Rangers now and the Ibrox side have Aberdeen breathing down their necks again.

Graeme Murty's side are two points ahead in second place but the Dons have a game in hand.

Killie keep on going

FT: Rangers 0-1 Kilmarnock

Let's examine this Killie run a bit closer... Stevie Clarke has worked wonder since taking over at Rugby Park in mid-October.

They have lost just three league matches since he arrived.

He's unbeaten in three games against Rangers, winning twice.

Dominant Dons, defiant Dee

Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Billy Dodds

BBC Scotland summariser

Aberdeen deserve to win as they have dominated after the break without getting that second goal. If nothing else, Dundee have shown battling qualities that were missing against St Johnstone last week

Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Adam Rooney is close to scoring with his first touch, Anthony O'Connor's front-post flick just evading the top of the Aberdeen substitute striker's bonce with the goal gaping.

It looks to strike the arm of Steven Caulker, but referee Willie Collum waves away muted claims for a penalty kick.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Rangers 0-1 Kilmarnock

Rangers send for veteran striker Kenny Miller, who takes over from Daniel Candeias.

The hosts then come close to a leveller as a Russell Martin header clatters against the crossbar.

GREAT SAVE!

Hearts 3-0 Partick Thistle

Another good, if slightly flashy, stop from Jon McLaughlin as he holds on to a glancing header from Miles Storey. Who can blame the keeper for wanting some extra exercise on what has been a quiet day?

Dons pressing for second

Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Billy Dodds

BBC Scotland summariser

Aberdeen are definitely playing the second 45 in the Dundee half and are having plenty have chances, but they just can't get that second goal

The Staggies look try to respond to losing their lead as Alex Schalk hammers in a shot that Gary Woods does well to stop.

GREAT SAVE!

Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Elliot Parish was partly to blame for the Dons opener and puts himself in trouble again when he can only push away Chidi Nwakali's 20-yard drive.

Ryan Christie is first to the rebound, but the goalkeeper redeems himself with a fine block from point-blank range.

Parish's reward, though, is to be left hobbling from the challenge.
