  1. Goodbye

    What an eventful day, eh?

    Hibernian dashed Celtic's hopes of securing the Premiership title at Easter Road - and in the process boosted their target of finishing second this term.

    And later, victories for Partick Thistle, Dundee and Aberdeen; while Ross County and Motherwell settle for a point apiece.

    We'll have more reaction to today's games on our site and social platforms; we're back tomorrow for Rangers v Hearts v Rangers at Ibrox. Hope you can join us then.


  2. Robinson makes case for the defence...

    FT: Ross County 0-0 Motherwell

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson: "As the game went on, I thought we ground them down a bit. It was a scrappy affair and you have a team fighting for their lives. We matched them every step of the way and it' s credit to our boys - an 18th clean sheet for the season."

  3. Canning laments 'criminal' goals

    FT: Partick Thistle 2-1 Hamilton

    Hamilton Accies manager Martin Canning: "I'm disappointed and frustrated. We're 1-0 up and have two great chances at the start of the second half, through on goal twice, and if it's 2-0 then the game is probably done. We don't do that and then we lose two goals from set pieces, which is criminal."

  4. Ferguson upbeat despite County league placing

    FT: Ross County 0-0 Motherwell

    Ross County interim co-manager Steve Ferguson: "We find ourselves bottom of the league after today's game but the positive for us is how we stood up to a flying Motherwell team at the moment.

    "We take lots of positives from today, albeit we find ourselves back at the bottom of the league."

  5. McCann 'so proud' of his Dundee team

    FT: Dundee 2-1 St Johnstone

    Dundee manager Neil McCann: "I was pretty far from being relaxed, I didn’t enjoy that one bit. I know I’ve seen managers in the past spend time up [in the stand] and I can understand why they want to get down. Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to get down [because of a one-match touchline ban].

    "I’m so proud of everybody involved, because it’s a big result. We haven’t had a lot of wins at home, so it was really important that we started off these five games with a win against St Johnstone.

    "That’s us now beaten them three times this season, but none more important than today. We had to earn it. Once they got back on level terms it would have been easy for us to feel sorry for ourselves, but we went for it.

    Dundee manager Neil McCann

    "Moussa was fantastic, his all-round play, the holding up, his work rate, and it was a super header. I really don’t have a failure and that goes to the bench as well. What a big three points, I’m so happy.

    "[Elliott Parish] made some great saves, but he’s doing his job. When the defenders can’t cut out a cross and one of their forwards gets on it, you’re hoping he steps up and makes the saves. He did that when he was called upon.

    "[A handshake with Tommy Wright] won’t be happening. I’ve gone round every one of my players and staff and it’s a great night."

  6. Victory gives Partick Thistle 'real bounce' - Archibald

    FT: Partick Thistle 2-1 Hamilton Accies

    Partick Thistle boss Alan Archibald: "It was a day of emotions, especially with the tribute to John Lambie. It was a fitting way to pay tribute to a good man and get a victory.

    "You can see that the crowd was up, and the players got a reaction from that and started the game really well. I thought we were unlucky to go a goal down... but it was a real squad game today.

    "It [the victory] was massive and it will give us a real bounce."

  7. Saints defending disappoints Wright

    FT: Dundee 2-1 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright: "If you take the first two minutes and the last two minutes out of it, it was very good and we should have won the game. But from where their free kicks are, we shouldn’t lose goals from those positions.

    "We’ve shot ourselves in the foot with the start we made, but we got back in the game, we forced corners, but it was poor defending for the goals. They haven’t troubled us except for a free kick and a Murray shot.

    "We kept prodding away. We got into good positions and probably didn’t work their keeper enough, but overall we were in control of the game. With the makeshift side that we had, I thought we did admirably and we shouldn’t have lost the game.

    "It’s an opportunists’ goal [by Steven MacLean], the ball breaks to him and he puts it away well. If our fans had any doubts about his commitment, you saw today that he will be committed until he leaves us.

    "[The reaction from Dundee fans] was really good, I enjoyed it. I normally come here and they wouldn’t know my name, so it was brilliant. I had a wee wave.

    "I’ve drawn a line under [the dispute with Dundee manager Neil McCann]."

  8. 'No complaints over Kilmarnock loss' - Clarke

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-2 Aberdeen

    Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke: "We were a bit hesitant in the first half. We had to reshuffle [team selection] overnight and it maybe took a little time get to grips with the new system.

    "The first goal was a consequence of that and we got caught on counter attacking... I thought the reaction as better in the second half and we started off on the front foot.

    "We created one or two chances and were unlucky not to score. Then we got done on a second set play. It wasn't a free kick but it was a good delivery into the box and we didn't defend it well enough.

    Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke

    "I'd rather talk about the players on the pitch [instead of those unavailable this afternoon] and I thought the midfield two [Alan Power and Gary Dicker] eventually got a grip of the midfield.

    "We looked a threat going forward. No big complaints... Aberdeen probably just shaded the game."

  9. McInnes delighted with Aberdeen win

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-2 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes: "It's important [after the Scottish Cup semi-final exit] to get back to that winning feeling. We knew that we had to put the work in to get the job done today.

    "It was a hard-fought game. I know it was a 2-0 scoreline but I didn't think there was a lot in the game.

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

    "Kilmarnock went with a different shape today and, once we'd made that [tacatical] adjustment after the first 10 to 15 minutes, I thought we had a foothold in the game.

    "That was a hard-fought game and I don't think it was any different from any other game we've played against them. It was a very tight match but thankfully we came up with the goals at good times to win the game."

  10. Scottish Premiership bottom six

    Ross County are back in the automatic relegation spot after a goalless draw with Motherwell and Partick Thistle beating fellow strugglers Hamilton. Dundee ease their worries with victory over St Johnstone.

    Bottom Six
  11. Scottish Premiership top six

    Celtic will have to wait to win the league title after losing to Hibernian and Aberdeen beating Kilmarnock.

    And it's quite a battle for second spot.

    Top Six
  12. Dons hold upper hand...

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-2 Aberdeen

    Jonathan Sutherland

    BBC Sport Scotland at Rugby Park

    Why can Kilmarnock beat everyone except Aberdeen?

  13. Thistle boost survival hopes

    FT: Partick Thistle 2-1 Hamilton Accies

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Firhill

    The Jags have breathed new life into their Premiership survival hopes and have the psychological boost of moving off the bottom of the table, thanks to their first league win in 10 attempts - in that victory they scored their first goals in six matches.

    And they did it the hard way - coming from behind - perhaps inspired on what is John Lambie day here - he's got links to both clubs of course - but managed thistle over four different spells and won two league titles with them.

  15. FULL-TIME Ross County 0-0 Motherwell

    Ross County slip to the bottom of the Scottish Premiership after their draw against Motherwell is bettered by Partick Thistle's victory over Hamilton Academical.

    One point separates the bottom two and it's going to be a tense final three weeks of the season.

  19. CLOSE!

    Ross County 0-0 Motherwell

    That's the closest thing to a goal in Dingwall.

    Ryan Bowman tees it up for Chris Cadden on the edge of the box and the winger's shot rises just over the bar.

  20. Main man off target

    Ross County 0-0 Motherwell

    Curtis Main is through for Motherwell but there's no repeat of his emphatic second-half finish against Aberdeen last week as he drags a tame effort wide of the Ross County goal.
