  1. Can Old Firm topple Killie?

    Kilmarnock's stay at the top of the table, courtesy of their fine 3-1 win over Dundee, is likely to be short-lived for a second time this season.

    Reigning champions Celtic will regain the lead if they take at least a point from the first of three games in hand when the face their former manager Neil Lennon's Hibernian at Easter Road.

    That's the early kick-off at 12:30 GMT.

    Even if Brendan Rodgers' side lose that one, Rangers will have their chance to head the pile later at 15:00 when Steven Gerrard's outfit entertain struggling Hamilton.

    Join us tomorrow for full radio and online coverage of both games.

  2. Three-team battle against relegation?

    Defeats today by Dundee and St Mirren, along with Motherwell's fine win away to St Johnstone, is leaving three sides isolated at the bottom of the table.

    The Dee and Buddies are four points behind Hamilton Academical, who will be struggling to take anything from their trip to face Rangers tomorrow.

    Accies are a further five points adrift of Lanarkshire neighbours Well.

  3. 'Penalty miss was the turning point'

    FT: St Johnstone 0-2 Motherwell

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright tells BBC Scotland: "I thought we deserved a draw, I don't think we deserved to win the game.

    "The penalty miss is a big turning point for us. We lose the game because we don't start the first half really well.

    "We talked about defensive duties today, to make sure we clear lines, don't try to over complicate it at the back.

    "But we don't defend a throw in properly, give away a cheap corner, don't defend the corner and really all Motherwell's opportunities came from bad mistakes from us giving the ball away in cheap areas, trying to play our way out of trouble when it was really a day to go longer."

  4. Saints let Dons off hook - Kearney

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Aberdeen

    St Mirren manager Oran Kearney tells BBC Scotland: "I thought our performance was a lot better and a marked improvement from last week.

    "We had the game in a place where we wanted it after 60 minutes and things were starting to get edgy, so just disappointed to concede at that time and let them off the hook.

    "The big concern for me is still the sporadic nature of the performances. The second half at Livingston last week was embarrassing, yet we hit a performance like that today where we got at it strongly."

  5. Edinburgh and Clyde take advantage

    Scottish League Two

    Only two League Two games survived the winter weather and Edinburgh City and Clyde took advantage of second-top Peterhead's game against Cowdenbeath being called off.

    City hammered fourth-placed Elgin City, with striker Blair Henderson grabbing his second hat-trick of the season to take his season's total to 24 goals.

    A late goal from veteran midfielder John Rankin gave Clyde victory over fifth-placed Annan Athletic.

    It means Edinburgh stretch their lead at the top of the table to Five points, while the Bully Wee narrow their gap with the Blue Toon to five.

  6. 'Scruffy' Dons deserved win - McInnes

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes tells BBC Scotland: "It was a tough watch at times, it was scruffy at times. We were untidy after the opening goal.

    "I'd need to see it again, but I thought Connor MacPherson was offside for their goal, but the linesman assures me one of my players was playing him on.

    "In terms of chances created and being the away game, I thought we just about deserved the points.

    "I thought Sam Cosgrove led the line brilliantly today. Him and Stevie May go away feeling good about themselves getting a goal."

  7. Leaders Arbroath march on

    Scottish League One

    Arbroath retain their 13-point lead over Raith Rovers in League Two after a single goal scored by Ricky Little away to Airdrieonians secured an eighth consecutive league win for Dick Campbell's side.

    It could have been better news for the Red Lichties had Rovers not twice come from behind to beat Dumbarton 4-2 in Kirkcaldy.

    Third-top East Fife also kept pace with a 2-0 win at Ochilview that leaves Stenhousemuir stuck at the foot of the table.

  8. Rangers' Ejaria returns to Liverpool

    News just in concerning the Ovie Ejaria saga at Ibrox.

    The 21-year-old on-loan midfielder will return to parent club Liverpool 'immediately', Rangers have confirmed.

    Ejaria signed for Rangers in the summer on a season-long deal, but the club says he has "not settled" in Scotland.

    The Englishman made 28 Rangers appearances, with all but five being starts.

    But he was not in the squad for Thursday's Europa League defeat to Rapid Vienna, with manager Steven Gerrard saying Ejaria was not in the right frame of mind and would be spoken to again yesterday about his feelings of being "unsettled" in Glasgow.

  9. Ayr stay top

    Scottish Championship

    Five out of five draws mean it's as you were in the Championship with Ayr on top after stretching their unbeaten run to eight games at home to Ross County.

    But Ian McCall's side were fortunate to retain their one-point lead against impressive visitors from Dingwall despite having led 3-1 at the break, with Lawrence Shankland providing another double.

    Perhaps crucially, the Honest Men still have a game in hand.

    Falkirk, held at home by Greenock Morton, remain bottom, behind neighbours Alloa Athletic on goal difference after the Wasps took a point away to Partick Thistle.

  10. 'We don't get credit enough'

    FT: St Johnstone 1-2 Motherwell

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson tells Sportsound: "It was going to be scrappy and a hard-fought game. It always is here, but credit has to go to the players.

    "I think what we asked for in the last month was consistency. We were organised, disciplined in difficult conditions. They don't get that credit often enough."

    Looking ahead to Wednesday's trip to face Celtic, he added: "Every game at Celtic Park is difficult. If we get something, we will be delighted, but we will go there in a positive frame of mind.

    "Our start of the season has dictated where we are, but we have shown a consistency over the last month."

  11. Killie sit proudly; Celtic poised

    Scottish Premiership

    Kilmarnock go a point ahead of Celtic after their 3-1 win over Dundee.

    But Brendan Rodgers' side have three games in hand and can regain their place with even a draw away to Hibernian tomorrow.

    Aberdeen move above Hearts and Livingston into fourth after their win in Paisley.

  12. Worrying for St Mirren and Dundee

    FT: St Mirren 1-2 Aberdeen

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser

    Quote Message: The worrying thing for St Mirren and Dundee is they are becoming a bit cut off at the bottom. St Mirren made it difficult, but Aberdeen did most of the attacking and deserved to win the game
  13. 'Great response' from Killie - Clarke

    FT: Kilmarnock 3-1 Dundee

    Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke is delighted that his side had bounced back from last weekend's hammering by Celtic to return to the top of the table.

    "Especially second half, I thought we were terrific and could have scored more goals," he tells BBC Scotland.

    "First half, it was a bit too open and we needed a scrappy goal to take the lead.

    "I felt from the start of the second half, we started very well and got the goal.

    "It is a great response to disappointing result last weekend."

  14. County deserve draw in table-top clash

    FT: Ayr United 3-3 Ross County

    Tam McManus

    Former Hibernian striker on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Ayr United have only lost one goal in the last seven games, but County looked like they could score every time they went up the pitch. It was an opportunity missed for Ayr, but nothing has changed at the top and County deserved their point
  15. Killie recover well

    FT: Kilmarnock 3-1 Dundee

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: In the last few weeks, Dundee have started to look not bad defensively, but once Kilmarnock got the first goal the game got stretched and it could have been a lot more. They have recovered well from last week's defeat by Celtic

  17. Saints start and end run against Well

    FT: St Johnstone 1-2 Motherwell

    Jonathan Sutherland

    BBC Sport Scotland at McDiarmid Park

    An exciting finale, but St Johnstone just could not find the equaliser.

    A 1-0 win at Motherwell started the Saints eight-match unbeaten run, so perhaps it's fitting that the Steelmen end it with their first win here in six years.

  18. FULL-TIME - St Mirren 1-2 Aberdeen

    The Dons have to hang on at the end as St Mirren give everything to get an equaliser, but they make it six wins from eight league games to move up to fourth in the Premiership.

    Stevie May's first-half penalty was cancelled out by Cammy MacPherson, but Sam Cosgrove's second-half header proves the difference.

  19. FULL-TIME - St Johnstone 1-2 Motherwell

    A late rally from St Johnstone falls short as Motherwell secure an impressive first win in Perth for six years.

    Well move five points clear of third-bottom neighbours Hamilton Academical as Saints remain seventh as their eight-game run comes to and end.

  20. FULL-TIME - Kilmarnock 3-1 Dundee

    A dominant second half from Kilmarnock takes them top of the Premiership table for the second time in two weeks.
