  1. Cheerio

    That's all folks...

    We had a couple of coupon-busters with Rangers and Aberdeen slipping up at home. Can Celtic take advantage and extend their lead or will it be Kilmarnock getting back into the mix?

    Hibs are off to a winning start with their new manager and Dundee move out of the bottom two for the first time this season.

    Here's how the table looks.

    Enjoy your Saturday evening and join us again tomorrow.

  2. Double the fun on Sunday

    Celtic's visit to Kilmarnock is not the only top flight match on Sunday. First up, we have a lunchtime kick-off with in-form Motherwell taking on Hearts.

    As ever, we'll have all of the action covered with live radio commentaries and text updates.

  3. Rangers miss Morelos

    FT: Rangers 0-0 St Johnstone

    That's back-to-back goalless draws for Rangers following the suspension of top-scorer Alfredo Morelos.

    The Colombian striker has one more match of his ban to serve; Wednesday's Scottish Cup replay with Kilmarnock at Ibrox.

    Steven Gerrard's side could be eight points behind Celtic by then, if the Premiership leaders win at Rugby Park tomorrow.

    That's not a given by any means. Killie beat Celtic 2-1 on their own plastic patch earlier this season.

  4. Kearney laments losing lead at Pittodrie

    FT: Aberdeen 2-2 St Mirren

    St Mirren manager Oran Kearney is rueing the fact his side twice lost the lead at Pittodrie.

    "Disappointed not to hold on to the lead, you get a bit greedy when you're in a position like that," he tells BBC Sportsound. "Obviously, with the situation we're in, it would have been a big three points. But before the match if you'd offered us a point we'd have probably taken it."

  5. Heckingbottom happy with Hibs start

    FT: Hibernian 2-0 Hamilton

    New Hibs head coach Paul Heckingbottom professed himself "delighted" with victory in his first game in charge since succeeding Neil Lennon.

    "First and foremost it was a win, and the players thoroughly deserved it," he tells BBC Sportsound. "There were some really good moments of play, which I hope the players can see the reward of their hard work on the training ground.

    "We have tried to keep it as simple as possible, and the things we stressed to them they did well, which was good.

    "The form has not been great, and regardless of how mentally strong you are, it can make you anxious. But we had a strong start, and just as Hamilton got back into the game, we got control of the ball again and the penalty came at a good time for us."

  6. McIntyre delighted by Dundee reaction

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Dundee

    Dundee manager Jim McIntyre is a happy man after his side come from behind to take maximum points in West Lothian.

    "It was a goal fit to win any game and we were delighted to come back," he tells BBC Sportsound. "We lost a poor goal, a long throw, something Livingston are very good at and off the second phase of that they score. We showed a great reaction. We created numerous opportunities in that first half and we should have scored at least three goals in the first half. That was the frustrating thing but we told our players not to panic.

    "There was some nervous stuff but overall I thought we deserved to win the game.

    "It was important to follow on the two valuable points we got recently with a win today, but it’s back to preparing for Friday and the game against Hibs."

  7. Livi denied 'stonewall penalty' - Holt

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Dundee

    Livingston head coach Gary Holt is frustrated after losing out at home to Dundee.

    "It's a wee bit unjust - the shift they put in, the effort they gave, especially going down to 10 men so early in the game," he tells BBC Sportsound.

    "It was a wonder strike. You can't take that away from Scott Wright, it's a great free-kick.

    "We should have a stonewall penalty at a crucial point in the game, on Steven Lawless. It's something that's cost us, it's cost the boys. It's cost them a chance to win the game. How you can book him for diving is beyond me.

    "I didn't see Shaun Byrne's red card initially. I've had a look at it just from one angle so far. I think it's maybe a yellow but I'd need to see it from other angles before I say anything."

    Steven Lawless is booked
  8. 'Perfect Saints response' - Wright

    FT: Rangers 0-0 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright tells his club's Twitter account: "The performance was excellent.

    "We were more like ourselves. Our shape was good and everyone did their job.

    "It's a good point and the perfect way to respond to recent results."

  9. 'Buddies best performance for some time'

    FT: Aberdeen 2-2 St. Mirren

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: A great game of football. There was always something happening. It’s the best performance from a St Mirren side for quite some time. They looked pretty good defensively and pretty potent on the break. They weren’t the sort of team that had just decided to come up and sit in and not venture forward.
  10. Skippy scores on Jags debut

    FT: Alloa Athletic 0-2 Partick Thistle

    Scott McDonald hasn't played a game since the tail end of last season but the experienced Australian striker and regular Sportsound guest has not lost his touch.

    After agreeing to join Partick Thistle this week, the former Celtic and Motherwell man came on as a second-half substitute to score a second goal for the visitors at Alloa.

    A third successive league win moves the Jags off the foot of the table and up to the giddy heights of eighth.

  11. The Wright stuff for Dundee

    FT: Livingston 1-2 Dundee

    Jonathan Sutherland

    BBC Sport Scotland at the Tony Macaroni Arena

    The Trial by Sportscene debate tomorrow night will be all about the free kick goal from Scott Wright. Has their been a better free-kick goal this season?

    It was a sublime thing of beauty as the on-loan Aberdeen winger curled an effort into the top corner from 20 yards. He was booked for his celebrations but that was a big, beautiful goal for the away side.

  12. 'Good start for Heckingbottom'

    FT: Hibernian 2-0 Hmailton Academical

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Hamilton tried hard, they didn't give up, but the quality just wasn't there, especially in the final third. Mikel Miller was their best player but it's been comfortable for Hibs and a good start for Paul Heckingbottom.

  14. FULL-TIME - Aberdeen 2-2 St Mirren

    St Mirren battle to a welcome point but lose more ground at the foot of the table after Dundee's victory.

    Aberdeen were pounding the Buddies goal towards the end but couldn't find a third goal. The Dons' poor home form continues and Rangers' draw will only add to their frustration.

  15. St Mirren down to ten

    Aberdeen 2-2 St Mirren

    St Mirren will have to see out this game with 10 men as goalscorer Kyle McAlliste limped offs. Manager Oran Kearney has already used his three substitutions.

    A few minutes of stoppage-time to go...

  16. FULL-TIME Rangers 0-0 St Johnstone

    Rangers drop points at home, with leaders Celtic five points ahead with tomorrow's game at Kilmarnock to come.

    Without suspended top scorer Alfredo Morelos, Rangers rarely tested former Ibrox goalkeeper Cammy Bell.

    And they had to make do with a second successive goalless draw.

    Steven Gerrard's side have now gone six games without defeat, but Saints counterpart Tommy Wright will be the happier after his team ended a run of five consecutive defeats.

  17. FULL-TIME - Hibernian 2-0 Hamilton

    Hibs nudge up to seventh place thanks to first-half goals from Florian Kamberi and Marc McNulty.

    The second-half was wide open, with both sides missing chances to add to the scoreline.

    A fine first day for new Hibs boss Paul Heckingbottom.

    Dundee move out of the Scottish Premiership's bottom two after coming from behind to beat 10-man Livingston.

    Dundee celebrate

    Livingston 1-1 Dundee

    Seny Dieng denies Livingston twice in quick succession as Craig Halkett and Chris Erskine are frustrated by the Dundee goalkeeper.
