  1. Goodnight

    Well, the evening has ended on something of a bombshell with Neil Lennon's revelation that he may consider his position as Hibs head coach after their 2-1 defeat by Hearts.

    Was that just frustration and emotion taking over? Or has the Northern Irishman seen something tonight that makes him question whether he wants to stay in Edinburgh?

    Fourth place - if that's where Hibs end up - is hardly to be sniffed at for a club in their first season back in the top flight.

    Anyway, Hibs now need a six-goal margin of victory over Rangers if they are to finish third, which seems a tad unlikely.

    That game is one of three in the final round of fixtures this Sunday, with champions Celtic hosting second-placed Aberdeen and Kilmarnock hosting Hearts.

    Before that on Saturday, attention turns to the bottom of the table, with Ross County needing a win at St Johnstone in their bid to overhaul Partick Thistle and avoid automatic relegation, with Thistle possibly needing something at Dundee to ensure they are the ones in the relegation play-off.

    Thanks for your company tonight and see you then.

  2. Clarke hails disciplined Killie display

    FT: Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock

    Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke on BBC Scotland: "It was a disciplined performance. We didn't threaten enough going forward - we got into one ort wo promising positions but they seemed to peter out. We didn't work their goalkeeper which was disappointing; We like to think we can score in every game we play.

    "But I've got to be happy with a very disciplined defensive performance. We managed to restrict Celtic to very few shots at goal."

  3. BREAKING - Lennon to consider future at Hibs

    FT: Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    An emotional Hibernian head coach Neil Lennon has declared he will consider his future at the club after a 2-1 defeat by Hearts cost them the chance of finishing second in the Premiership.

    Lennon branded his players "unprofessional" after some lost their footing on the wet surface and lost out to Steven Naismith's headed winner from a set-piece.

    He said: "We look like we are going to finish fourth, which is unacceptable for me. I will reconsider my position now in the summer.

    "I've got things to think about myself, my own personal aims and ambitions. But I can't watch that in a derby. It's not good enough.

    "We have a board meeting next week so we'll see. I have been here two years now and we have made great strides but I've got to think about myself sometimes as well and how I feel about the whole thing.

    "Maybe I am a bit over-emotional at the minute but fourth isn't good enough."

  4. Rodgers - 'I've no complaints'

    FT: Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers wasn't too disappointed by his side's failure to break down a disciplined Kilmarnock defence in their goalless draw at Parkhead.

    "It was one of those games where you control a lot of the ball and a lot of the game, but Kilmarnock sat very deep and were compact, and that always makes it very difficult," he told BBC Scotland.

    "We found the space hard to come by, and without natural strikers, who can make those natural movements, it makes a bit more difficult.

    "We had a couple of chances from set pieces and if we get a little bit of luck and get the goal, then it opens the game up a little bit and they’ve got to come out.

    "But I've no complaints really. It was a good evening in terms of getting more players game time, and some young players getting the chance to come in and play which is great.

    "In these type of games you have to make sure if you don't score, you don't give anything away, and it is another clean sheet."

  5. 'Pathetic' Hibs rile Lennon

    FT: Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Hibs boss Neil Lennon on BBC Radio Scotland: "The two goals we conceded were pathetic. Lewis (Stevenson) should’ve dealt with it, put it out for a corner, he’s caught napping. But that summed us up defensively tonight really, I thought we were awful, normally we’re quite solid. The difference between the sides tonight is a set-piece.

    "There’s a level of professionalism that I set, but if players aren’t wearing the right footwear then they need to look at themselves. Players are slipping over because they’re not wearing the right footwear.

    "The pitch is good but there’s dew on the top and it’s hard underneath so you have to wear long studs. In the first five minutes I have two players slipping over like Bambi on Ice. Then they’re off guard and they’re unsettled. That really riles me.

    "Fourth won’t be good enough for me, we want to finish third."

  6. Scottish Premiership top six

    Hibs will finish fourth in their first season back in the Scottish Premiership, unless they beat Rangers on Sunday by six goals.

    Top Six
  7. Levein praise for Lafferty

    FT: Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Hearts boss Craig Levein, speaking to BT Sport: "I thought it was a competitive match, as usual. I thought we had the best chances, and I am just thrilled for the players and supporters.

    "Kyle Lafferty is on the team-sheet every week if he is available, and although his Achillles was hurting him a bit, it was important to get three points against our local rivals.

    "So he played, and I thought he was excellent."

    FT: Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Robbie Neilson

    Former Hearts manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: "The Hearts fans here are absolutely delighted. They don't really care about where their team are in the league right now; they can go off for the summer happy now they've won the final derby of the season."
  9. Post update

    FT: Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    So that was the first time Hearts have managed to beat Hibs in the league this season, after two defeats at Easter Road and a draw in the previous encounter at Tynecastle.

    This one was probably the best of the lot, with plenty of niggle, drama and controversial decisions.

    I'm not a betting man, but I have an inkling Hibs boss Neil Lennon won't be a happy man when we hear from him shortly...

  10. Post update

    FT: Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: "Celtic popped the ball around but had no focal point and couldn't create chances. Kilmarnock worked really really hard to frustrate Celtic. They'll be happy with the point."
  11. Dumbarton and Stenhousemuir hold play-off advantage

    Stuart Carswell's first-half goal gives Dumbarton a 1-0 advantage from their away leg at Alloa in the Scottish Championship play-off final, with the second leg to come on Sunday.

    Rory McAllister missed a penalty for Peterhead, who lost 2-0 to Stenhousemuir - Michael Dunlop heading a second-half double for the hosts ahead of Saturday's second leg.

  12. FULL-TIME - Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    So Hibs won't finish second this season. That will be either Aberdeen or Rangers.

    They could still sneak third, but it will take a six-goal margin of victory over Rangers in their final league game on Sunday.

  13. Late chance for Hibs

    Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Brandon Barker plays the ball in from the right flank, but Darren McGregor, up from centre-back for the last throes, fluffs his lines, and misses his kick completely.

    That could be it...

  14. Share of the spoils

    FT Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Sport Scotland at Celtic Park

    Celtic dominated possession, territory and a had a couple of very good chances but were, in the main, extremely well managed by Kilmarnock.

    Steve Clarke’s side clearly know what they are doing and follow the game-plan to the letter. They did not create much but looked competent in their approach.

    James Forrest and Jack Hendry came closest for the home side but they didn’t test Jamie MacDonald enough.

    Kilmarnock will be the happier but in truth the result has little meaning in the grand scheme of things. It’s another positive result for Clarke, something he is used to in this role.

  15. FULL-TIME - Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock

  16. Six minutes of added time...

    Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Robbie Neilson

    Former Hearts manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: It's been a fantastic game, end to end. The flow of the match has gone from one team to the other."
  17. Half-chance for Hibs

    Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Hibs have four minutes, plus added time, to keep their hopes of second place alive.

    John McGinn swings in a corner, Darren McGregor nods it down, and Jamie Maclaren can't get quite enough on it as Hearts keeper Jon McLaughlin dives on the loose ball.

  18. Callachan on for Hearts

    Hearts 2-1 Hibernian

    Harry Cochrane receives a generous round of applause from the Hearts fans after another industrious display from the 17-year-old midfielder. Ross Callachan is on in his place.

    Quote Message: We mentioned pre-match about Brandon Barker and the excitement he brings, the pace, directness, the skills. The only thing he lacks is that goal."
  20. CLOSE!

    Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock

    Another chance for the home side, but Jack Hendry heads Callum McGregor's corner just wide.
