  1. Big matches on horizon

    Despite a run-of-the-mill 2-1 win over 10-man Hamilton, Celtic march on towards what would be a historic second domestic treble in a row.

    Having already lifted the Scottish League Cup, they have moved to within one victory of a seventh league title in a row and, next up, they face city rivals Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final in seven days time.

    For relegation-threatened Accies, they next host Kilmarnock on Saturday as the two sides play the final game before the Premiership splits into two for the final round of fixtures.

    For the SPFL, it has the tricky decision of when to schedule the final Old Firm league encounter to reduce the chance of Celtic securing the title against their city rivals.

    Quote Message: One of these teams - Dundee or Hamilton - will get a win after the split to see them safe. It is between Ross County and Partick Thistle and they are likely to face Livingston in the play-off
  5. Sending off unfair - Canning

    FT: Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Hamilton manager Martin Canning has questioned the decision by referee Andrew Dallas to send off Darren Lyon after a second yellow card.

    "For the second game in a row, we've had a very soft second yellow card and it's frustrating," he told BBC Scotland.

    "I don't think, if it's the other way around, it would be the same result.

    "The referee could have used a bit of experience there and maybe calmed the game down.

    "I didn't even see it as a flashpoint. Tierney's come flying into Darren Lyon and Darren Lyon's pushed him away and I don't think there's anything in it at all.

    "It was disappointing because of the result, but I thought the effort of the players was terrific.

    "I thought the goals we conceded were sloppy, but in open play I thought we limited Celtic to not a lot."

  6. Ajer will learn from error - Rodgers

    FT: Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Speaking to BBC Scotland,Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers: “If you look throughout the team, we have so many young players that are learning the game and Kris [Ajer] has been absolutely fantastic and he just switched off for that moment, squared himself up and a quick player will get in behind you. The boy Bingham finished very well.

    “He’s a great learner, Kris, and he’ll learn from that.

    “It was a good win for us on the back of three tough games this week.

    "At the end of a long season, it was always going to be a difficult game with Hamilton fighting to stay in the league and us fighting to ensure we get over the line as quick as we can."

  8. As you were for Accies

    FT: Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    For Accies, they have failed to make one of their games in hand against their relegation rivals count.

    Next, they host Kilmarnock, the form team in the Premiership at the moment, on Saturday.

    Martin Canning's side remain in ninth place, ahead of Dundee on goal difference, four clear of Ross County in the relegation play-off spot and a further point ahead of bottom side Partick Thistle.

    Most worrying for the Accies manager is that the defeat was his side's fourth in a row and they have not won in their last five outings.

  9. SPFL fixture dilemma

    FT: Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Now the ball is in the court of the Scottish Professional Football League, which has to decide the final round of Premiership fixtures early this week.

    It wants to avoid Celtic clinching the title in a Glasgow derby against bitter rivals Rangers.

    So it is unlikely to be the first game after the top flight splits into two sections of six teams following Saturday's game between Hamilton and Kilmarnock.

    Does it chance it on the second game after the split? Possibly unlikely in case Celtic don't win their first.

  11. FULL-TIME Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    The final whistle puts us all out of our misery after a dull second half.

    Celtic did enough to claim another three points to move 13 ahead of Rangers and Aberdeen at the top of the table.

    Brendan Rodgers' side are now one win away from their seventh title in a row.

    It looked like we had a game on our hands after Callum McGregor's early opener was cancelled out by Rakish Bingham.

    However, Darren Lyon's moment of stupidity in getting himself ordered off before half-time meant that Celtic only needed a Leigh Griffiths strike just after the break to secure a routine victory.

  12. Post update

    Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Charly Musonda has a chance to make his mark as the ball falls to him inside a crowded penalty box, but the on-loan Chelsea midfielder fires wastefully wide of the far post.

    Celtic are meandering towards another three points - and another step closer to a seventh Scottish title in a row - as we enter two minutes of stoppage time.

  14. Musonda replaces Roberts

    Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    That was Patrick Roberts' last contribution as the on-loan Manchester City winger is replaced with Charly Musonda.

    Musonda has yet to live up to his billing since his own loan move from Chelsea.

  15. Post update

    Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Patrick Roberts finds fellow winger Scott Sinclair at the back post with a fine cross, but the Englishman volleys over from only 10 yards.

  16. Rojano for Redmond

    Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Give Martin Canning credit, the Accies manager's giving it a go as he replaces midfielder Danny Redmond with striker Antonio Rojano.

  17. Post update

    Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Olivier Ntcham is given a sight at goal from Callum McGregor's pass, but the French midfielder's powerful 18-yard drive is well wide.

    Leigh Griffiths follows suit moments later, firing well over.

    Hamilton Academical 1-2 Celtic

    Ryan Fulton is called into action again from the corner kick.

    The Accies goalkeeper is less troubled this time as he kneels down to gather a powerful low drive from Callum McGregor.

    Accies goalkeeper Ryan Fulton has not had much to do despite Celtic's dominance.

    But, when called upon, the former Liverpool man does well to turn wide a back header from Scott Sinclair.
