  1. Bye for now, see you on Sunday

    Scottish Premiership

    Half way through the weekend, reigning champions Celtic are back on top of the Premiership after a 6-0 thumping of Ross County.

    But Rangers have the chance to return there tomorrow away to a Hearts side who now lie second bottom of the table.

    Third top Motherwell's defeat at home to Aberdeen means it's become even more of a two-horse title race.

    Join us for more live coverage of the Scottish top flight tomorrow - not to forget the one remaining Scottish Cup second-round tie between University of Stirling and Linlithgow Rose.

  2. Killie 'need to improve attack' - Alessio

    FT: Kilmarnock 2-0 Livingston

    Kilmarnock manager Angelo Alessio is happy to get the three points, but it is only the second Premiership game of the season where his side have hit double figures in goals.

    "We need to improve in our attack," he tells BBC Scotland. "I think the second half we were much better, but in the end, we deserved to win the game.

    "I think we are building our season. It’s early, this result is good for our confidence, but we’ll take things step by step, game by game."

  3. My team never give up - Rice

    FT: Hamilton Academical 1-1 Hibernian

    Hamilton head coach Brian Rice praises his side's fighting spirit and goal hero Ross Cunningham, who scored the equaliser from the penalty spot six minutes after coming on.

    "My team never give up," he tells BBC Scotland. "That’s three or four times this season we’ve gone behind and fought back to win or draw.

    “I’m delighted for young Ross. He has just signed a new contract and had injury problems when I first came into the club. We have resolved them now and he’s playing with freedom and a smile on his face. He’s a joy to work with.”

  4. 'We have to put teams to bed'

    FT: Hamilton Academical 1-1 Hibernian

    Hibs head coach Paul Heckingbottom bemoans his side's failure to kill teams off.

    The Easter Road side remain without a win since the opening day despite having taken the lead in their last four league games.

    "I'm disappointed, frustrated, it's lots of similarities again," he tells BBC Scotland. "We took the lead, were playing really well and should be talking about a superb goal from Stevie Mallan and other great opportunities where the football is fantastic.

    "We’ve got to put teams to bed. Especially when we’re on top in the first half."

  5. Leaders stumble in Championship

    Scottish Championship

    Two goals from veteran striker Stephen Dobbie helped Queen of the South stun leaders Dundee United 4-0 in Dumfries.

    Ayr missed the chance to take over at the top as Dunfermline came from behind to stretch their unbeaten run to four games and end the visitors' four-game unbeaten run at East End Park.

    Third-top Inverness Caley Thistle would have taken over at the top with a win but are a point behind after being held at home by Alloa.

    Dundee's disappointing start to their season back in the second tier as Partick Thistle came from behind to record a surprise 3-1 win at Dens Park, although Ian McCall's visitors remain behind Alloa at the foot of the table.

  6. Key moments went against us - Robinson

    FT: Motherwell 0-3 Aberdeen

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson does not begrudge Aberdeen their 3-0 win but certainly believes the game was won on much finer margins than the result suggests.

    “I think key moments went against us," he tells BBC Scotland. "We started really brightly and, in the first half, we totally dominated. We miss a penalty and then that gives them a lift.

    "You have to give credit where credit is due. It maybe shows the level of players that Aberdeen have.”

  7. 'Concerning' for Saints

    FT: St Mirren 2-0 St Johnstone

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: When you think of Tommy Wright's St Johnstone teams, you think of very strong, very difficult to play against and they didn't give much away. Middle to front, they are looking alright, but defensively things are a big concern. You hear the way the manager is talking there and it's concerning
  8. Goodwillie denies leaders

    Scottish League One

    Two second-half goals from former Scotland striker David Goodwillie denied League One leaders Raith Rovers a victory in Cumbernauld.

    A 2-2 draw allows East Fife to draw level, but behind on goal difference after Darren Young's side avoided the manager of the month curse to beat Forfar Athletic 1-0 and extend their unbeaten run to eight games.

    Falkirk are a point behind after a 4-0 thumping of Peterhead extended their unbeaten run to five.

  9. Preston on Off the Ball

    Off the Ball Supplement

    That idiosyncratic duo, Stuart Cosgrove and Tam Cowan, are back with their Off the Ball Supplement on BBC Radio Scotland right now with more irreverent chat roughly based around today's action.

    Former Dundee United, Hearts, Dunfermline Athletic, St Johnstone and Queen of the South defender Allan Preston, now a BBC pundit and who has his ear to the ground on many transfer deals, is tonight's guest.

  10. I'm letting the club down - Wright

    FT: St Mirren 2-0 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright has been telling some home truths on Sportsound as his side remain without a league win this season

    "It's the same old story," he says. "Up until they scored, we were totally dominating the game. We can't defend what happened after that.

    "In the second half, we didn't show up, we capitulated. At the minute, they're letting themselves down.

    "It's a mental thing. There are too many non-leaders in there. There's not enough people taking responsibility.

    "Ultimately it's my responsibility because I signed them and give them their new contracts. I've done everything with them - have a go at them, put an arm round them. On paper, they're probably the best squad I've assembled, but they're not performing.

    "I'm letting the club down at the minute and the players are certainly letting the club down."

  11. Vyner to switch to midfield?

    FT: Motherwell 0-3 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes was delighted to see Zak Vyner finally grab a goal that he has been training for all week and believes the on-loan defender may actually work better as a central midfielder.

    “He has been rattling them in all week in training," he tells BBC Scotland. "He’s a very confident boy. I actually think that could be his position. I’ve said this for a while to him.

    "Obviously he’s Bristol City’s player, but we feel he is maybe a player that can maybe play in midfield. He has good athleticism, good feet and he does have a goal in him. A brilliant finish.”

    Vyner
  12. Killie fans 'unsure of where their team is at'

    FT: Kilmarnock 2-1 Livingston

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on Sportsound

    Quote Message: At half time, you wouldn't have said it was a good performance, but it's amazing how a goal changes the feeling about a place. The Killie fans got right behind the team with that goal just before half time, but it feels like they are unsure of where their team is at. The football isn't pretty, but you can look at all the detail you want, it doesn't matter, because they are getting results and that's the most important thing
  13. League Two sides struggle in cup

    Scottish Cup, second round

    Fort William, once billed as the worst team in Britain after their long streak without a win, have recorded the result of the day in the Scottish Cup, the Highland League outfit forcing a replay away to League Two side Albion Rovers after a 1-1 draw in Coatbridge.

    It is a result matches by East of Scotland League side Broxburn Athletic, who held League Two outfit Cowdenbeath to a 1-1 draw at Central Park.

    There was no revenge for Cove Rangers as the League Two leaders losing for the second season in a row at this stage to Junior Cup winners Auchinleck Talbot, as they did last season as a Highland League side last season.

    Brora Rangers blew away Clachnacuddin 7-0, while Inverurie Locos also won an all-Highland League tie, 3-1 away to Rothes. Those two join Lowland League leaders Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic, who beat Buckie Thistle, as the non-SPFL teams in tomorrow's draw.

    Five games have gone to replays, while one was postponed, so more could yet follow.

  14. 'Cosgrove up there with anybody'

    FT: Motherwell 0-3 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes was full of praise for his towering striker, Sam Cosgrove, after his 15th goal of the season opened the scoring at Fir Park.

    “Sam's finish just epitomises where he is at the moment," he tells BBC Scotland. "I thought he was outstanding and we’re so fortunate, despite all our injuries in the middle of the park, that we have someone like that leading the line.

    "He’s in brilliant form. His goal ratio at the moment is up there with anybody and he’s in such a good place. His finish is top class.”

    Cosgrove
  15. Dons' 'performance of the season'

    FT: Motherwell 0-3 Aberdeen

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: It's Aberdeen's best performance of the season. It was a mature performance. They've missed Shinnie, but Vyner and Leigh brought his qualities today. The three goals were magnificent and it could've been more

  18. 'Training ground stuff' from Celtic

    FT: Celtic 6-0 Ross County

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: The first half and the second half performances were similar and it probably should have been three or four at half time. It's exactly what Celtic would've been looking for after picking up one point out of six. That performance from Celtic was training-ground stuff with the one-twos in and around the box. There's very little the Ross County defence could do
  19. Complete performance - Lennon

    FT: Celtic 6-0 Ross County

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon was full of praise for his side and pleased with how ruthless they were against Ross County in the second half

    "I was disappointed not to be more than one up in the first half," he tells BBC Radio Scotland.

    "It was exhilarating at times. I put a challenge out to the players at half time and they responded with a volley of goals.

    "That's the most complete performance we've had since I returned here and close to the most complete I've had as Celtic manager.

    "The team was outstanding and there was pure talent out on the pitch. I enjoyed it immensely."

    Celtic's Callum McGregor and Neil Lennon celebrate
