Next stop Hamilton

Hamilton Academical v Celtic (Sunday, 12:30)

Another topsy turvy day in Scottish football draws to a close, but the Premiership weekend isn't yet over.

Join us again tomorrow as relegation-threatened Hamilton host champions elect Celtic.

Could there be another twist that will give the SPFL nightmares as it looks to place the last Glasgow derby of the league season?

Dons defeat adds to SPFL dilemma

Scottish Premiership

Rangers are back into second place in the Premiership - on goal difference ahead of Aberdeen.

The Dons' stumble away to Hearts adds to the dilemma facing the Scottish Professional Football League.

It was waiting to announce the post-split fixtures until after this weekend's fixtures.

If Celtic win tomorrow at Hamilton, it would mean that Brendan Rodgers' side could secure the title in the first game after the Premiership splits into two.

It means that it is unlikely to be chosen for the final Old Firm derby against Rangers.

Cove take title and head for play-off

Highland League

Cove Rangers' 5-0 win over Clachnacuddin has secured the Aberdeen side the Highland League title.

It means they will face the winners of the Lowland League in a play-off to see who has the chance of facing a final against the team to finish bottom of League Two and the chance to win a place in the SPFL.

Tough at the bottom

Scottish Premiership

Ross County's point against Hibs gives the Dingwall side a narrow advantage at the bottom of the Premiership.

The pressure tomorrow turns to Hamilton, who sit ninth, four points ahead of County, and host champions elect Celtic tomorrow.

Top two win again

Scottish League Two

Peterhead and Montrose remain neck and neck at the top of League Two.

The Blue Toon won 3-1 away to Berwick, while Montrose ran out 5-0 winners away to a Stirling side who sit third and were looking to secure a promotion play-off place.

Stenhousemuir returned to the top four after a 4-1 win away to Edinburgh City.

Elgin slip to fifth after losing by the same score away to Annan.

Cowdenbeath delayed confirmation of finishing at the bottom by edging out Clyde.

All of a sudden, they are only seven behind Berwick and Edinburgh with four games remaining.

Ayr take control

Scottish League One

Ayr have stretched their lead at the top of League One to five points after a 2-1 win away to Airdrieonians.

Second-top Raith Rovers were held to a draw away to Arbroath.

That point lifts the Red Litchties into third ahead of Alloa on goal difference after the Wasps lost 1-0 at home to Stranraer.

The win takes Stranraer to within six points of Arbroath and Alloa.

Albion Rovers and Queen's Park remain tied at the foot of the table, with Forfar moving seven points ahead after their win in Coatbridge.

Buddies can win it at Tannadice

While Livingston's win over Morton prevented St Mirren securing the title today, the Paisley side remain 12 points ahead at the top of the Championship and can clinch the title when they travel to face Dundee United on Tuesday.

Livi stay six ahead of Dunfermline Athletic with a game in hand, but the Pars continue their own momentum with a fine 2-1 win away to Falkirk.

United slip three points behind the Fifers after another disappointing result - losing 3-2 away to second-bottom Dumbarton - although they do have two games in hand.

The consolation for Csaba Laszlo's side is that the two sides below them - Morton and Queen of the South - both lost.

Despite Dumbarton's win, the part-timers are eight points behind Falkirk and destined for a relegation play-off.

Kettlewell sees 'huge positives'

FT: Ross County 1-1 Hibernian

Ross County interim co-manager Stuart Kettlewell on BBC Radio Scotland: "We rode our luck at times today and Hibs are full of quality in all areas of the pitch and we understood that.

"Our players were really disciplined within our shape. We made it really difficult for them to create clear-cut chances.

"We’re massively disappointed we concede the goal, but we can’t ask too much more of the players.

"We knew this was going to be a tough fixture and we thought our players stood up to the test really, really well.

"That’s four points in the last two games for us and we’ve got to take huge positives from that."

Massive games after split - Archibald

FT: Partick Thistle 0-1 Kilmarnock

Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald: "I thought the performance was better. There wasn't a lot in the game.

"There was a lot more desire from the players to try and get back in the game and win the game.

"Things don't go for you when you're down the bottom of the table.

"Massive games now - they become cup finals and, if we show the desire we showed today, hopefully we'll get a result.

"I'm happy doing my job. What the board say and what the board do isn't going to affect the players on the pitch at the moment."

Lennon rues missed chances

FT: Ross County 1-1 Hibernian

Hibernian head coach Neil Lennon on BBC Radio Scotland: "It was total domination from the team. They showed great resilience and patience.

"We missed a lot of opportunities to score a lot earlier, even before County scored. And County scored with their one attack.

"They’d plenty luck today and sometimes you need that when you’re down there fighting.

"I’m pleased with the character we showed and it could be an important point.

"It’s five cup finals now. No-one’s given us a chance of finishing second, but we’re only three points behind second place with five games to go."

Levein demands better away form

FT: Heart of Midlothian 2-0 Aberdeen

Hearts manager Craig Levein on BBC Radio Scotland: "We wanted to try and win the game, we wanted to go home and send the supporters home happy.

"We’re very good here. The challenge for us is to be just as good away from home.

"The shape of the team was excellent and we never really allowed them to create the gaps that would’ve caused us problems.

"We stayed compact and moved together all over the field and that made it really difficult for them to play through us.

"We have set high standards today and hopefully we can reach those for the rest of the season."

So close but just delayed

FT: Brechin City 0-1 St Mirren

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at Glebe Park

The title party did not materialise thanks to Livingston’s win over Morton, but St Mirren have inched ever closer to clinching the Championship title.

Kyle Magennis produced a brilliant early strike to get St Mirren ahead, but in truth they didn’t dominate from there as you might have expected.

The next opportunity to finalise the title is at Tannadice on Tuesday. Dundee United will want to make sure it doesn’t happen at their home.

FULL-TIME Rangers 4-0 Dundee

Rangers go second in the Premiership thanks to a dominant display against Dundee.

Kenny Miller, Alfredo Morelos, Jamie Murphy and Daniel Candeais grabbed the goals and with Aberdeen losing at Hearts, Graeme Murty's men are now second on goal difference.

Dundee remain 10th behind Hamilton on goal difference, with Ross County edging to within four points of Neil McCann's side.

FULL-TIME Heart of Midlothian 2-0 Aberdeen

Goals from Steven Naismith and David Milinkovic secure an impressive win for Hearts and it is a body blow for Aberdeen's hopes of finishing runners-up.

The defeat allows Rangers to take over in second place on goal difference.

GOAL Rangers 4-0 Dundee

Daniel Candeias

Daniel Candeias fires into the roof of the net as Rangers edge towards an emphatic win.

FULL-TIME Ross County 1-1 Hibernian

Hibs defender Darren McGregor goes close with a header from a corner, but the final whistle blows with the scores level.

County move a point above Partick Thistle at the bottom of the table but miss a chance to pull Dundee and Hamilton Academical deeper into trouble.

The Dingwall side at least narrow the gap on those two to four points.

Hibs will also be disappointed not to have taken three points with second-top Aberdeen losing away to Hearts.

With Rangers beating Dundee, Hibs are now three points behind the Glasgow side and the Dons.

FULL-TIME St Johnstone 0-0 Motherwell

A dull draw at McDiarmid Park benefits Motherwell more than their hosts.

The Fir Park side stay ahead of Saints on goal difference in seventh place.

ADDED TIME

St Johnstone 0-0 Motherwell

The match somewhat petering out at McDiarmid Park.

FULL-TIME Partick Thistle 0-1 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock secure a fifth straight win as Thistle slip a point behind Ross County at the foot of the table.

The Ayrshire side, who remain fifth in the table, are the first to produce such a run in the Premiership this season.

A Stuart Findlay header secured a win against a toothless home side.

GOAL Ross County 1-1 Hibernian

Oli Shaw

At last, Hibs have a goal to show for their dominance. It's a lovely through-ball from replacement Danny Swanson, Martin Boyle gets a touch to knock it into the path of Oli Shaw. The young striker finds the bottom corner with a first-time effort. Will there be a winner in Dingwall?

HITS THE WOODWORK

Hearts 2-0 Aberdeen

Some rare fluency and dynamism from the Dons, substitute Kari Arason striding forward, Shay Logan delivering, Andy Considine knocking the ball down and, from six yards out, Adam Rooney rattles the post.

GOAL Livingston 3-2 Greenock Morton

Alan Lithgow

Central defender Alan Lithgow heads Livi ahead with his second of the game and seventh of the season.

Livi have come from behind and it looks like St Mirren might not have that title party after all.

CLOSE!

Ross County 1-0 Hibernian

Chaos in the County box as Hibs pepper the home defence with crosses and high balls.

Goalkeeper Scott Fox eventually clings on after reacting well to deny Florian Kamberi.

GOAL Falkirk 1-2 Dunfermline Athletic

Aaron Muirhead (pen)

Aaron Muirhead pulls one back for Falkirk from the penalty spot in the game that has become known to some as "the Kincardine Bridge derby".

GOAL Rangers 3-0 Dundee

Jamie Murphy

That'll do it for Rangers.

Great work from Alfredo Morelos, who robs the Dundee defence before setting up Jamie Murphy to make it 3-0.

GOAL Dumbarton 3-2 Dundee United

Craig Barr

Craig Barr scores his second of the day to restore Dumbarton's lead for a third time.

Are they about to avenge Tuesday's defeat by United?

GOAL Rangers 2-0 Dundee

Alfredo Morelos

That could wrap up the win for Graeme Murty's men, as Alfredo Morelos finishes from close range following a great centre from Daniel Candeias.

That's the Colombian's 18th goal of the season.

Edging closer to the title

Brechin City 0-1 St Mirren

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at Glebe Park

St Mirren are still in front but have looked susceptible on occasion to an equaliser.

They’ve not created too much to make things a touch more comfortable.

It seems minds are drifting to what’s happening in Livingston, with Morton’s equaliser re-energising the crowd.

They’re just 20 minutes or so from winnning the Championship title.

Doolan to the rescue?

Partick Thistle 0-1 Kilmarnock

Kenny Crawford

BBC Sport Scotland at Firhill

Kris Doolan is on as a sub for Partick Thistle.

If ever the Jags needed a regular scorer, it is surely now.

Bit more bite

St Johnstone 0-0 Motherwell

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Sport Scotland at McDiarmid Park

The second half has been about 10 times better than the first half, but that’s only brought it up to about middling.

Trevor Carson’s saved well from David Wotherspoon, who looked for a moment like he might take this second half by the scruff of the neck.

But alas this match has not erupted into a bonanza of excitement.

St Johnstone 0-0 Motherwell

Scott Tanser fires wide as St Johnstone continue to threaten in Perth.

GOAL Dumbarton 2-2 Dundee United

Scott McDonald

Scott McDonald's 12th of the season means United have come from behind twice to level.

GOAL Livingston 2-2 Greenock Morton

Ricki Lamie

Ricki Lamie heads Morton level and the St Mirren title party is back on track!

CLOSE!

Ross County 1-0 Hibernian

Hibs go close again to an equaliser as Steven Whittaker's overhead kick flies over.

Not quite Cristiano Ronaldo!

GREAT SAVE!

Hearts 2-0 Aberdeen

Hearts come close to a third goal at Tynecastle as Kyle Lafferty unleashes a left-foot effort that goalkeeper Joe Lewis does well to tip over.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Rangers 1-0 Dundee

Rangers go close to what could be a killer second goal, but Alfredo Morelos' shot comes back off a post and Kenny Miller drills the rebound wide.
