Before we go...If you click on the tab above, you can now watch today's Hibs-Kilmarnock "humdinger" - Neil Lennon's words - as live, courtesy of BBC Alba.

So congratulations to Dundee United and Dunfermline, who both confirmed their place in the mini marathon that is the Championship play-offs, with the winner to face Livingston in the semi-finals before meeting the 11th-placed Premiership team in the final.

And also Ayr United, who clinched the League One title, and League Two champions Montrose,

But spare a thought for Brechin City's players, manager Darren Dods and fans tonight. Their side has made unwanted Scottish football history, becoming the first senior side since Vale of Leven in 1891-92 to go an entire season without a league victory.

They are one of only two part-time teams in Scotland's second tier, and their campaign ended with a 5-1 home defeat by Queen of the South. Fitting, you might say.

Anyway, after the drama of today, it's onwards to Celtic Park tomorrow, and the small matter of the final Old Firm game of the season. (12:00 kick-off)

Will the champions seal their seventh successive Premiership title? Join us here from 11:00 for all the build-up and live coverage. Thanks for your company today.

Open game didn't suit us - Clarke

FT: Hibernian 5-3 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke on BBC Radio Scotland: "It's a disappointing result because we didn't defend as well as we normally do. The game was too open second half. It's not a style of game that suits us very well, which you could see in the goals we conceded.

"The lads were completely committed, we played some good stuff going forward. I don't think there was much between the two teams and if we got the right breaks at the right times, then maybe we could've had a different outcome today."

Clarke also confirmed why he had been sent to the stands at half-time.

"I had a little chat with the referee at half-time and he decided that I'd over-stepped the mark and asked me to watch the second half from upstairs," he said.

Hibs v Killie a 'humdinger'- Lennon

FT: Hibernian 5-3 Kilmarnock

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon on BBC Radio Scotland: "It was a humdinger, it was a great game with two teams going all out to win the game. I'm glad we came out the other side of it with a positive result.

"There were some difficult moments in the game they [the players] rode and came through. You've got to give Kilmarnock credit they didn't just sit in and counter attack. They had a real good go and it turned out to be a very entertaining game."

"The players got plenty of questions asked of them today and they responded brilliantly.

"We're in a great position. Rangers play Celtic tomorrow which is obviously a tough game. Aberdeen had another good win last night and we go up there next week, which is probably going to be the toughest game we'll have now. But we'll look forward to it and know we're in for a big afternoon."

Hibs celebrate Brandon Barker's fifth goal

Championship play-off quarter-final confirmed

Inverness Caley Thistle won eight and drew two of their last 10 Championship games, but it wasn't quite enough, John Robertson's side finishing two points off the top four.

As it is Dundee United, who beat second-placed Livingston 2-0 to finish third, and Dunfermline, 4-0 home winners over Dumbarton, will face each other in the quarter-final play-offs.

The first leg will be at East End Park on Tuesday, 1 May, with the return at Tannadice on Friday, 4 May.

Get Involved - Has your team ever gone a whole season without a win?

Championship side Brechin have become the first senior Scottish side to go a whole season without winning a league game since Vale of Leven in 1891-92, after a 5-1 home defeat by Queen of the South.

Have you ever played in a team that failed to win a game all season? How bad was it? Could you still enjoy it?

Sensational game at Easter Road. Neil Lennon's side are now level with Rangers, who go to Celtic on Sunday, and three points behind Aberdeen in the race for second place.

Joy for Ayr United

Ayr United 2-0 Albion Rovers

Charlie Mann

BBC Scotland at Somerset Park

There are people on the pitch at Ayr United. A really really memorable day.

GOAL - Hibernian 5-3 Kilmarnock (Barker)

Brandon Barker runs across the edge of the area before slotting the ball into the opposite corner. What a game we've had at Easter Road, equalling the highest scoreline in the Premiership this season - Rangers also won 5-3, at Hamilton.


FT: Montrose 1-1 Elgin City

Montrose take the title as Peterhead have to settle for second, a point behind.


Raith Rovers, top at the start of play, have been held 0-0 at home to Alloa Athletic, meaning Ian McCall's Ayr United, 2-0 winners over Albion Rovers, take the League One title.

FULL-TIME - St Johnstone 1-1 Partick Thistle

It's all over at McDiarmid Park and Partick Thistle have secured what could prove to be a vital point in their battle for Premiership survival.

Dees flooding forward

Motherwell 2-1 Dundee

Dundee are laying siege to the Motherwell box, peppering the goalmouth with crosses and headers, but are thus far unable to trouble Trevor Carson.


Motherwell 2-1 Dundee

This has been an attritional tussle, and Motherwell's Liam Grimshaw is the latest to need assistance from the medics. He's nursing a sore shoulder after landing awkwardly from a tackle, but will be able to continue.

GOAL - Brechin City 1-5 Queen of the South (Layne)

At least Brechin's loyal fans have a goal to celebrate, if not a league win this season. Isaac Layne has got them on the scoresheet.

GOAL - Ayr United 2-0 Albion Rovers (McDaid)

Declan McDaid's goal could see Ayr clinch the League One title, unless Raith Rovers score.

GOAL St Johnstone 1-1 Partick Thistle (Sammon)

Conor Sammon converts the penalty and Partick Thistle are level.

GOAL - Dundee United 2-0 Livingston (McDonald)

Scott McDonald's 15th goal of the season means it looks like Dundee United are going to clinch third place in the Championship.


St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Ryan Edwards goes down in the St Johnstone box when challenged by Liam Craig and Partick Thistle have a penalty.

GOAL - Brechin City 0-5 Queen of the South (Dobbie)

That's Stephen Dobbie's fourth hat-trick of the season, and his 27th goal of the season.

The scoreline kind of sums up Brechin's season doesn't it?

GOAL - Hibernian 4-3 Kilmarnock (Boyd)

So maybe Hibs still have some work to do...

Kris Boyd fires a scorching free-kick into the top corner from 25 yards. What a strike that is from the hitman as he takes his tally to 23 for the campaign.

Title slipping away for Raith Rovers

Raith Rovers 0-0 Alloa

Brian McLauchlin

BBC Sport Scotland

Ten minutes to go here at Stark's Park. There's hardly a supporter in their seat here, they're straining to try and get a goal for their side that would turn the title race back round in their favour.

GOAL - Hibernian 4-2 Kilmarnock (Kamberi)

You would think that might just about do it for Hibs.

Scott Allan teases a delightful reverse pass into the path of Florian Kamberi and he beats Leo Fasan to make it 4-2.

Penalty confusion

Hibernian 3-2 Kilmarnock

It looked like Hibs were about to have a golden chance to kill off this match. Florian Kamberi went down after breaking into the box and it looked like referee Don Robertson had given a penalty.

The official then spoke to his assistant and a drop ball was the decision. Strange one.

GOAL - Brechin City 0-4 Queen of the South (Dykes)

Queens are piling on the misery for Brechin, Lyndon Dykes adding his second of the game.

Going to hedge my bets...

Brechin City 0-3 Queen of the South

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Sport Scotland at Glebe Park

Brechin City are not going to get a league victory this season, I think that is safe to say.

Can they at least get a goal to reward their long suffering fans?

Saints chance

St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

George Williams' shot on the turn is saved by Partick Thistle goalkeeper Tomas Cerny.

GOAL - Brechin City 0-3 Queen of the South (Dobbie)

Brechin's winless league season looking almost secure, as Stephen Dobbie grabs his second of the afternoon.

GOAL - Dunfermline 4-0 Dumbarton (Williamson)

Ryan Williamson adds the fourth for the Pars, who have all but secured a Championship play-off quarter-final against Dundee United.

GOAL - Hibernian 3-2 Kilmarnock (Maclaren)

What a game we have at Easter Road. Hibs are in front for the third time as Jamie Maclaren nets to make it 3-2 to the hosts. Again it was John McGinn with the delivery.

GOAL - Hibernian 2-2 Kilmarnock (Findlay)

All square again at Easter Road as Stuart Findlay knocks the ball home for Kilmarnock.

Defender Findlay breaks forward with the ball and after linking up with Jordan Jones he is there to make it 2-2 with a left-foot finish.

Kusunga nursing suspected broken rib

Motherwell 2-1 Dundee

We're hearing Dundee's goalscorer Genseric Kusunga has a suspected broken rib. The defender was carried off and given oxygen after going down just before the second half kicked off.

Hibernian 2-1 Kilmarnock

Kris Boyd has missed a chance to square it again at Easter Road. A ball into the box finds the big striker but his header is straight at keeper Ofir Marciano.


St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Kris Doolan's header comes back of the St Johnstone crossbar and Baily Cargill heads over the rebound.

The flag was raised so it would not have counted.

GOAL - Motherwell 2-1 Dundee (Kipre)

Motherwell have turned this game around, and it's Cedric Kipre, the big French defender arriving at the back post who provides the killer touch. Kipre glances his header down and beyond Trevor Carson from six yards out.

'Not good enough' from Thistle

St Johnstone 1-0 Partick Thistle

Allan Preston

BBC Scotland summariser at McDiarmid Park

They need more. For Partick Thistle this is their livelihoods at stake, staying in the Premiership. They need to do better, it's simply not good enough so far. Connor Sammon is on.
