  1. Signing off

    Another busy weekend of Scottish football awaits and you can keep up with all of it on the BBC Sport website.

    Highlights of the Scottish Premiership games will be on Sportscene Saturday (19:30) and Sunday (19:15).

    That's all from me, thanks for your company.

  2. Championship action

    Moving to the 2nd tier now and a big game on Saturday as Hearts face Dundee at Tynecastle.

    Hearts are still looking to continue their title charge, which has been stumbling a little as of late. Dundee are unbeaten in three after holding off Inverness during the week.

    It's a repeat of the first league game of the season, that one ending in an eight goal thriller.

    Let's hope for more goals this weekend.

  3. St Johnstone looking up and down the table - Davidson

    St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson says it is important they remain aware of what is going on below them in the Premiership table, as well as what is happening above them:

    “It is good and bad going into this time of the season, we are looking at the top six, we are also looking at relegation at the same point, that is how I see it in my head"

    "I am glad we have got the points on the board just now but for me looking downwards I would like a couple more wins to make sure we try and stay safe and we stay in the league for next season.”

    His team play Hibernian at home on Saturday 3pm.

  5. Celtic will deal with Edouard contract in summer - Kennedy

    Celtic interim manager John Kennedy says striker Odsonne Edouard remains focused despite the Frenchmen being linked with a £15m move away to Leicester:

    "I’ve no doubt there will be interest in Odsonne, as there was last season and all the time he’s been here, because of his talent he’s got, but ultimately the club will do the right thing for themselves and the club and everything else. But we want to keep him for as long a we can because of the talent he’s got and the ability he’s got, because having a player like him in the squad only makes you better."

    "But there ultimately comes a point whether contractually or the players motivation you have to sit down and address that and that will be done in the summer. But he’s very focused in terms of the way he’s trained this week, it’s been superb, he’s very focused on what he can do from now until then and then we’ll deal with that in the summer.”

  6. Gerrard 'doesn't need to leave Rangers to prove himself' - Carragher

    Writing in the Telegraph former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher:

    "There was a time when I might have gone along with the idea that Rangers is a good first stepping stone for my former Liverpool teammate, and he should have his eye on a swift Premier League return in readiness for an inevitable Anfield reunion later in his career."

    "Having seen what he is building at Rangers, I do not believe he has to leave Ibrox and prove himself anywhere else. Certainly not yet."

    "He has obviously fallen in love with the club and the city of Glasgow and looks to be settling in for the long haul."

  7. 'I'm desperate to put on that Scotland jersey again' - Jack Hendry

    With the Euros looming there are still a number of Scottish players hoping to find a way into Steve Clarke's final squad when the tournament begins.

    One of those looking to do just that is on-loan Celtic defender Jack Hendry. The 25 year old, currently playing at Belgian club KV Oostende, hopes to make an impression on the Scotland manager before the summer.

    "The first time I played for Scotland was my proudest moment and I'm desperate to put on that jersey again," he adds. "All I can do is maintain my standards to give the coach a difficult decision to make."

    You can read the full piece on Hendry's time with the 'Hamilton of Belgium' here.

  8. 'Are you coming to Celtic in the summer?' - Clarke faces kids' questions

    Keeping things international the Scotland boss Steve Clarke faced some questions from Edinburgh-based Team United, which supports young people with autism and helps them overcome social barriers.

    They certainly didn't hold back grilling the Scotland manager on a variety of topics.

    You can watch it here.

  9. Glasgow at risk of being cut from Euro's host cities

    With fewer than 100 days until the delayed Euros, Uefa wants each of the countries staging matches to submit their plans - including for the return of fans - by a deadline of 7 April.

    But the Scottish government is yet to provide assurances whether fans will be allowed back by June.

    First Minister Nicola Sturgeon responded saying "We are absolutely intent on having the Euros, on having Hampden as one of the host stadiums of the Euros, we have always been intent on that. We are particularly keen on it now that would bring the opportunity to see Scotland play at Hampden as well."

    "While nothhing in a global pandemic can be certain when you are looking far into the future, I very much want and hopefully over the next few weeks to get a greater degree of confidence in saying expect to be one of the many Tartan Army fans cheering on Scotland at Hampden later in the year."

    "We’ve all got a part to play in making it possible, because what is necessary is we continue to supress the virus as the vaccination is rolled out more."

  10. Kilmarnock need to be more 'clinical' - Wright

    Speaking in the build up to the Ross County game Kilmarnock manager Tommy Wright spoke about what he feels his side need to do more:

    "At the top end of the pitch we have to make sure we are more clinical and make more of the opportunities to create more chances because our approach play has been really good."

    "We have worked the ball into really good areas but we have been let down by the final ball at times, maybe not the right movements in the box so there is still work to be done."

    "We have worked hard again this week to try to improve that attacking side of the game and hopefully that will reap benefits. "I have seen improvement in every game and there is still room for improvement and hopefully we will get that tomorrow."

    Tommy Wright
  11. Post update

    It's pretty tight but most of you are backing John Hughes' men to get the result.

    That would move County four points clear of Kilmarnock with a game in hand over their relegation rivals.

    I think we can all agree we want to see more of Yogi in the Premiership.

    John Hughes
  12. Relegation six pointer

    Looking ahead to this weekend, outside of the title race, the biggest game is undoubtedly the match up at Dingwall on Saturday.

    Kilmarnock travel to face Ross County and will be looking to get their first win since they beat Hamilton back in January.

    They have shown signs of improvement under Tommy Wright but face a John Hughes side who in their last home game beat Celtic 1-0.

    Prediction time; thumbs up for County, thumbs down for Killie.

  13. One year unbeaten for Rangers

    A year ago yesterday Rangers grabbed themselves a title of a different kind as they made it a whole calendar year unbeaten in the league since they lost to Hamilton and found themselves 13 points behind Celtic in March 2020.

    You can read more about their remarkable run here.

  14. Heartbreak for Hamitlon

    In the other Wednesday night game a late Guy Melamed strike denied Hamilton a priceless victory.

    It look for all the world like another typical Accies late season result after Ross Callachan curled in a peach to put them ahead at New Douglas Park.

    It wasn't to be as Melamed snuck in to finish neatly with three mintues left, you can watch the highlights below.

    Will Accies stay up this time? Or is their seven year stay in the Premiership about to come to a close?

  15. Penalty or dive?

    The Rangers' manager seems fairly calm this morning but that wasn't always the case Wednesday night as he was sent off for his protestations over the Alfredo Morelos penalty incident.

    Morelos found himself in behind the Livingston backline before knocking the ball past Max Stryjek.

    The goalkeeper appeared to catch the striker with an arm, sending him tumbling, but referee John Beaton judged the Colombian to have dived and showed him a yellow card.

    You can watch the incident below and make up your own mind.

    Let's settle it here thumbs up for penalty, thumbs down for dive.

  16. 'The important thing for us is to remain focused' - Gerrard

    Speaking in his pre-match press conference this morning Rangers manager Steven Gerrard: "The fans are the priority here and we can relate to the excitement they are feeling. The important thing for us is to remain focused and get this over the line."

    "I haven't had much time to reflect, in the right time I will but there has obviously been a remarkable change in our consistency and mentality over the past 12 months and the players deserve all the credit for that."

    "The important thing for us as a group is to keep winning football matches and it will happen when it does. The most important thing is to get that trophy back, knock all the 54's off the wall for 55 and add to the wonderful history at this football club."

  17. Morning!

    We'll be looking back at this week's action as well as building up to this weekend's games.

    It's felt inveitable for a while but Rangers now only need a four point swing to seal the title.

    They face St Mirren on Saturday while Celtic travel to Tannadice to play Dundee Utd.

    If the Gerrard's men win and Celtic fail to match the result the trophy will be heading to Ibrox.
