Good afternoon. Happy New Year. And welcome to the results show. It is

:00:19.:00:24.

not a repeat or a Best Of, it is the first live show of 12 Mac and

:00:24.:00:30.

that is a manic Monday with five games in the SPL. Inverness against

:00:31.:00:34.

St Johnstone was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch. You to

:00:34.:00:40.

bring in a new year with us are the best pundits available, willing to

:00:40.:00:46.

work on a public holiday! You Murray, and Pat Nevin. Let's find

:00:46.:00:50.

out how the surviving lunchtime match went, it was the Edinburgh

:00:50.:00:57.

derby at Easter Road, Hibernian against Heart of Midlothian. It is

:00:57.:01:02.

nine Edinburgh derbies without a victory for Hibernian. The visitors

:01:02.:01:08.

dominated the first half. And should have been ahead at the

:01:08.:01:14.

interval. Ian Black took a penalty and Graham Stack save it. Hibernian

:01:14.:01:18.

were better than the second half, chasing and harrying, but wet

:01:18.:01:22.

behind with Ryan McGowan heading in despite a possible offside against

:01:22.:01:27.

Elliott. The game exploded into life as Galbraith equalised for

:01:27.:01:33.

Hibernian a minute later. It looked like being a draw at that point,

:01:33.:01:37.

but Andy Webster and Rudi Skacel blasted home late on in front of

:01:37.:01:42.

their fans as past continue to belie their off-field problems. The

:01:42.:01:46.

on-field problems continue for Hibernian, who visit Dunfermline

:01:46.:01:54.

next. But it was a happy new year for the maroon half of Edinburgh.

:01:54.:01:59.

Hibernian's next League matches against Dunfermline on the 14th and

:01:59.:02:04.

the match away to Cowdenbeath in the cup next week. Would you and

:02:04.:02:10.

your fellow supporters be concerned about that? They might have scored

:02:10.:02:16.

19 goals in the League in 21 games. Not scoring enough goals. I cannot

:02:16.:02:24.

recall a shot on target apart from the goal. The lack of effort and

:02:24.:02:31.

fight, and bake, which is putting it politely, because Hibernian was

:02:31.:02:39.

my getting in about Ian Black. When it came to 1-1, Hibs had more of a

:02:39.:02:47.

foothold in the game. But they did not have that little striker up

:02:47.:02:56.

front. Problems for Pat Fenlon. Hearts seemed to be enjoying a

:02:56.:03:01.

revival, despite players not being paid the of December salaries. Or

:03:01.:03:07.

almost perversely, because of that. Perhaps they on the shop window

:03:07.:03:11.

because the transfer window is open. Hearts players have showed a lot of

:03:11.:03:16.

spirit, four games unbeaten and only lost one goal in those games.

:03:16.:03:22.

I thought pass deserved to win. It was strange it took them so long to

:03:22.:03:25.

score in the second half -- I thought Hearts deserved to win. The

:03:25.:03:33.

players are due enormous credit, and the manager who has adapted, he

:03:33.:03:36.

has adapted to the game in the SPL and is picking more appropriate

:03:36.:03:41.

teams and tactics and that is paying Op. But Hearts have got good

:03:41.:03:46.

players. The squad, as it is, is the third best in the country. That

:03:46.:03:51.

is overlooked, given the chaos in the background. Them going on a

:03:51.:03:57.

decent one should not be that much of a shop. Sue Celtic are going

:03:57.:04:00.

further 10 successive victory today, the table toppers going to the

:04:00.:04:06.

bottom club, Dunfermline. Let's see how it is going. Celtic will on

:04:06.:04:10.

their way to their 10th victory in a row, here at Dunfermline. It is a

:04:10.:04:14.

massive crowd and a good day out for the visiting celtic supporters.

:04:14.:04:19.

Antony Stokes put Celtic ahead in the 18th minute. He looked up, from

:04:19.:04:24.

20 yards, and sent it beautifully past Chris Smith for his 12th of

:04:24.:04:29.

the season. Then a Charlie Mulgrew free kick floated into the heart of

:04:29.:04:33.

the defence and Victor Wanyama was in the right place at the right

:04:33.:04:37.

time with a great half wally for a second goal of the season. Second

:04:37.:04:41.

half quieter, but the best goal of the game came and 68 minutes from

:04:41.:04:47.

Charlie Mulgrew, a brilliant free kick from 25 yards out. The ball

:04:47.:04:51.

simply flew past Chris Smith in the Dunfermline goal for Charlie

:04:51.:04:57.

Mulgrew's 4th goal of the season. The only good point for Dunfermline,

:04:57.:05:03.

their biggest home crowd of the season, and that its core warheads.

:05:03.:05:06.

That the crowd is going to be cold comfort of Dunfermline fans.

:05:06.:05:11.

Watching the match or in the studio, it is a fairly routine victory for

:05:11.:05:16.

Celtic. The Dunfermline are working hard but when Celtic went 2-0 up

:05:16.:05:24.

they were in cruise control after that. The wonderful thing about

:05:24.:05:30.

Celtic, going away from home, they a plane or-2-4, playing four

:05:30.:05:34.

strikers. And all those players are capable of creating more scoring

:05:34.:05:42.

goals. No surprise that Celtic have their tails up just now. If they

:05:42.:05:49.

can keep everyone fit and keep players such as Gary Hooper,

:05:49.:05:53.

despite interest from the Premier League. No home victories for

:05:53.:05:57.

Dunfermline this season and it did not look like that was when they

:05:57.:06:01.

changed day. We have been talking about heads, who would be in

:06:01.:06:05.

trouble of Dunfermline to stop shipping goals and find the defence.

:06:05.:06:12.

-- about Hibernian. Week after week, Dunfermline concedes of course, and

:06:12.:06:16.

that will be their undoing at the end of the season if they do not

:06:16.:06:19.

find some decent defenders this month. We're having technical

:06:19.:06:25.

problems getting Chip Young to report back from Ibrox, we have

:06:25.:06:32.

tried carrier pigeons and everything! It is now 3-0 to

:06:32.:06:35.

Rangers, with the own goal from Stephen Craigan, a goal from Sone

:06:35.:06:41.

Aluko and the goal from David Healy. At Tannadice, Dundee United are at

:06:41.:06:47.

home to Aberdeen. Dave Donaldson is there, with no technical problems.

:06:47.:06:52.

It took Dundee United six minutes to silence the huge any support.

:06:52.:06:56.

The corner from the right was not clear properly and Jon Daly, the

:06:56.:07:04.

United captain, smack in a low shot from 12 yards. Dundee United

:07:04.:07:07.

dominated possession and had a strong claim for a penalty turned

:07:07.:07:15.

down. In the second half, Craig Brown put on more Hamann Chalali.

:07:15.:07:18.

And with his first touch she headed it into the back of the net.

:07:18.:07:24.

Aberdeen should have gone in front but John Milsom managed to direct

:07:24.:07:30.

his header wide of the post. I had been reminiscing about the good old

:07:30.:07:38.

days of the new firm. We have come a long way from those days.

:07:38.:07:45.

seems like that was a cracker of a goal for Muamba Chalali. They have

:07:45.:07:54.

not lost many games in this period, so well done to them. Up until now,

:07:54.:08:01.

Aberdeen had been relying on Craig Berman scoring the goals. So much

:08:01.:08:06.

has handed Chip Young a megaphone at Ibrox, and he is going to shout

:08:06.:08:10.

as loud as he can with this Match report. It has been a very

:08:10.:08:17.

comfortable afternoon for Rangers. Nikica Jelavic had failed a fitness

:08:17.:08:22.

test, so they started with David Healy and Kyle Lafferty up front.

:08:22.:08:26.

Kyle Lafferty got injured. David Healy scored the first goal just

:08:26.:08:32.

before half-time to put Rangers 1-0 up, then Sone Aluko scored a fine

:08:32.:08:38.

goal with some great passing from Rangers. Then a few moments ago,

:08:38.:08:43.

Lee Wallace, with a thought, as the ball swung in from the right Hansie,

:08:43.:08:48.

Lee Wallace met it right at the goal posts. I think it was Lee

:08:48.:08:55.

Wallace who got the touch. Rangers, 3-0 up, and cruising. Going on at

:08:55.:08:59.

the start of the New Year with three points. And it is a fine

:08:59.:09:05.

afternoon and to under 44,890 be here at Ibrox. It does not sound

:09:05.:09:13.

like a fine afternoon for Motherwell and their fans.

:09:13.:09:16.

Motherwell's record against Rangers is abysmal. Interesting that

:09:16.:09:22.

Jelavic does not play, Lafferty injured, Ally McCoist once a

:09:22.:09:26.

striker. Whether Jelavic leaves will not bow stop David Healy on

:09:27.:09:32.

his own up front. They need more support than that. It shows you why

:09:32.:09:36.

Rangers need to supplement that forward Lennon January. Off to

:09:36.:09:41.

Rugby Park, Kilmarnock against St Mirren, is it a mid-table cracker?

:09:41.:09:50.

Let's find out., no one, St Mirren, one, at a cold and damp Robbie Park.

:09:50.:10:00.
:10:00.:10:04.

-- Kilmarnock 1. -- Robbie Park. Graham Carey what degree in

:10:04.:10:06.

swinging corner onto the head of Lee Mair, who scored his first goal

:10:06.:10:15.

for the club. That made it 1-0 to St Mirren. Kilmarnock equalised

:10:15.:10:19.

with Craig Sams in saving a shot from Dean Shiels, but Paul

:10:19.:10:23.

Heffernan drove home the rebound after an almighty scramble in the

:10:23.:10:27.

St Mirren bourse. Just before half- time, St Mirren had a good penalty

:10:27.:10:31.

claim with the way by the referee after Steven Thompson was bundled

:10:31.:10:36.

over in the box. The second half has not taken off the were the

:10:36.:10:41.

first half it. Dean Shiels had a free kick to Mark Kennedy, who

:10:41.:10:49.

blasted over. Both teams have tried to play good football. You deal

:10:49.:10:54.

with the type of football and these conditions, that there could still

:10:54.:10:58.

be a winning goal. It shows you the character of both these sides that

:10:58.:11:04.

that is a match that everyone looks forward to, the purists like

:11:04.:11:10.

yourselves. I thought Kilmarnock were the better side against Celtic

:11:11.:11:17.

recently. St Mirren have played it very well. Always impressed going

:11:17.:11:20.

forward with Paul Heffernan and Dean Shiels. It is an impressive

:11:21.:11:27.

team. There is a lot of good football being played by both sides.

:11:27.:11:35.

You have been casting your eye over the big match in the First Division.

:11:35.:11:39.

What was going to not playing, you have to make sure that if you are

:11:39.:11:44.

just end them, like Falkirk and Dundee, that you eat up the pace. -

:11:44.:11:54.
:11:54.:11:55.

- just behind them. Higginbotham has booked them 2-1 up and they

:11:55.:12:00.

need to win that game today. We will see if they can hold out,

:12:00.:12:05.

Falkirk against Livingston. The early goal for Dundee against Raith

:12:05.:12:15.

Rovers. Since they might have had a player sent off, things have not

:12:15.:12:23.

gone well. So that is Hamilton holding on. The last one is Morton

:12:23.:12:33.

against Ayr United, just above the drop zone, 1-0 up. A if you have

:12:33.:12:38.

spent the festive season in a selection box and you might have

:12:38.:12:44.

noticed there was an Old Firm match in between Christmas and New Year,

:12:44.:12:48.

a result that could have a significant bearing on the

:12:48.:12:52.

Championship, and a goal that never was. Jonathan will be furnishing us

:12:53.:12:56.

with the wit and wisdom of the online community. Good luck with

:12:56.:13:06.
:13:06.:13:28.

that. Here is a remembrance of Was it saved on the line? And some

:13:28.:13:33.

of this has knocked it over the line, but the offside flag is up. -

:13:33.:13:43.
:13:43.:13:44.

- Georgios Samaras has knocked it Just touched over by MacGregor from

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:14:16.

There is no getting away from it. That was a massive victory for

:14:16.:14:21.

Celtic. So will pick for an Jim Keir 67 says it was probably the

:14:21.:14:26.

easiest 1-0 victory I have seen, and by far the worst Rangers team I

:14:26.:14:32.

have seen at Celtic Park in my lifetime. Rangers fan and no

:14:32.:14:36.

surrender says that, had that header by Lee Wallace con in it

:14:36.:14:39.

would have been a different game. We had chances but we did not take

:14:39.:14:45.

any of them. The focus has shifted to Rangers manager Alan a cause.

:14:45.:14:50.

One Celtic fan says he has great pattern, but he is obviously out of

:14:50.:14:55.

his debt. To see a swing of 17. Is truly astonishing, and could get

:14:55.:15:00.

worse for Rangers in January with continual transfer speculation over

:15:01.:15:06.

top scorer, Croatian, Nikica Jelavic. Left out of the team today.

:15:06.:15:12.

Nacho Novo link with a possible move back to Rangers. An absolute

:15:12.:15:16.

joke if true, says one at you. And I imagine some sort of transfer fee

:15:16.:15:26.
:15:26.:15:35.

Let's tuck about the match. This went predictably with form. It did.

:15:35.:15:41.

Celtic are the stronger squad. If they have all their players

:15:41.:15:49.

available, Celtic should enjoy it, especially at home. I think Celtic

:15:49.:15:53.

deserved the win. Even though it was a dreadfully windy evening, it

:15:53.:15:58.

was a great advert for Scottish football because it was exciting,

:15:58.:16:03.

the right kind of excitement. Everyone I talk to after the game,

:16:03.:16:07.

all positives, no moaning about anything. The wind was a big

:16:07.:16:16.

problem. Was it or was it not over the line? More on that later. Now

:16:16.:16:23.

we go to Tannadice. It has gone away of the visitors.

:16:23.:16:33.
:16:33.:16:33.

What a strike it was. It was from a full 30 yards. It hit the underside

:16:33.:16:41.

of the bar and bounced the right side of the line for Aberdeen.

:16:41.:16:51.

Talking about the Old Firm. That was Celtic's 9th win on the spin.

:16:51.:16:54.

It doesn't seem that long ago that Neil Lennon was saying he thought

:16:54.:17:02.

his job was going to be gone! got players back from injury,

:17:02.:17:06.

players have found their form. It is all about momentum. Neil Lennon

:17:06.:17:11.

always had faith in those players and they have repaid the faith with

:17:11.:17:15.

the run they have been on. It would be wrong to say that they had been

:17:15.:17:19.

sparkling in every game, but they are picking up results and momentum

:17:19.:17:28.

is all-important. Let's go to Rugby Park.

:17:28.:17:33.

Unbelievable. Just when you think the game is going to fade out,

:17:33.:17:42.

along kick up the park, the St Mirren defence failed to clear its,

:17:42.:17:48.

the ball was clipped into the top corner of the net.

:17:48.:17:53.

Talking about Rangers, they were in wonderful form until about mid-

:17:53.:17:57.

November then the wheels did come off. Or could you put that down to?

:17:57.:18:05.

A lot of things. They lost the Steven Naismith. I think a lot of

:18:05.:18:09.

people felt that there was a core of their Rangers keen that they can

:18:09.:18:19.
:18:19.:18:20.

do without hands Naysmith, Davies and yellow pitch. Losing those

:18:20.:18:27.

players is massively important. Today was a massive day for Rangers.

:18:27.:18:32.

Absolutely massive. Motherwell had been playing well, particularly

:18:32.:18:42.
:18:42.:18:45.

away from home. Today was massive for them. Are we looking at Mason -

:18:46.:18:50.

- nee Smith as a better player now that he is out? He had a fantastic

:18:50.:18:55.

start to the season. It shouldn't be the case that a team can miss

:18:55.:18:59.

one player and it has such an adverse affect. I think that

:18:59.:19:03.

reflects badly on the other guys, to be blunt about it. Rangers need

:19:03.:19:08.

to find a different way of playing. They used to have a really useful

:19:08.:19:17.

knack of winning games but not playing well. There are players who

:19:17.:19:24.

can do that. Naysmith it is significant, it is a factor, but it

:19:24.:19:34.
:19:34.:19:36.

reflects badly on Rangers but it is such a factor, if that makes sense!

:19:36.:19:46.
:19:46.:19:50.

I would love to see... those strikers for Celtic are so highly

:19:50.:19:55.

rated that the Premiership want them. They will hope that they can

:19:55.:20:04.

keep on to them. If Rangers get seven, 8, �9 million for them, that

:20:04.:20:10.

could give them a good chance. If he could get some of that the to

:20:10.:20:13.

spend, he could stamp his personality on the team, which he

:20:13.:20:20.

has not really had the chance to do, Neil Lennon. I would like to see

:20:20.:20:24.

them staying. The squads the way they are, on 2nd January, he would

:20:24.:20:30.

Germany be on to be champions? Celtic. A significant be stronger

:20:30.:20:37.

squad? I think that. In early November, but would have seemed

:20:37.:20:47.
:20:47.:20:48.

like an nonsensical argument, but Celtic just looks stronger now.

:20:48.:20:52.

Looking in the newspapers, the speculation is a people returning

:20:52.:20:59.

flight Kris Boyd and Nacho Novo. But is not like-for-like? He is

:20:59.:21:08.

going to score chorus - - a score goals in the Premier League, you

:21:08.:21:11.

would have to say it would be Kris Boyd. He will score goals in the

:21:11.:21:21.
:21:21.:21:21.

Premiership. Once again, I don't like to see very good players

:21:22.:21:29.

leaving the Scottish game because I love watching him play. I think

:21:29.:21:35.

we're getting more top players now. When Nielsen - - when Neil Lennon

:21:36.:21:39.

was going through a sticky patch there were questions about his

:21:39.:21:47.

leadership qualities. Now Rangers fans are questioning Ally McCoist's

:21:47.:21:52.

suitability. I am aware of that and wrote a piece about it, but I think

:21:52.:21:59.

it is out of line. No unexpected though. Absolutely. But I think you

:21:59.:22:03.

need to give these guys at least this season. The problem with Ally

:22:03.:22:06.

McCoist is that the players that Rangers have brought in are not of

:22:06.:22:13.

the quality but they need. Is that the fault of Ally McCoist or

:22:13.:22:18.

further up the Jehan? I don't know. I think it is ludicrous that so

:22:18.:22:24.

soon a manager find an sup under pressure by his own supporters.

:22:24.:22:31.

full-time results are coming in. We are off to East End Park.

:22:31.:22:41.

It is all over here. Celtic moved to the 10th league win in a row. It

:22:41.:22:43.

really showed, the difference between the quality of these two

:22:43.:22:53.

sides. There was a terrific first goal from Anthony Stokes after 18

:22:53.:23:01.

minutes. From 20 yards out, he bent in a most beautiful shots for a

:23:01.:23:11.
:23:11.:23:13.

goal. Five minutes from the interval Celtic scored again. It

:23:13.:23:19.

was much quieter in the second half, but Celtic made it a thirds after

:23:19.:23:26.

60 minutes from Charlie Mulgrew. From 25 yards out, he hammered it

:23:26.:23:34.

past the goalkeeper. Celtic spurned a few more chances in the second

:23:34.:23:42.

half, but a terrific win for Celtic were still - -. Points for

:23:42.:23:49.

Dunfermline will come against other teams in the division.

:23:49.:23:53.

This Hibernian against Dunfermline match coming up, it looked fixed -

:23:53.:23:59.

- it looks like such a crucial game. It does that like a very important

:23:59.:24:09.
:24:09.:24:12.

game. - - look like. I don't think these teams have much money to

:24:12.:24:19.

bring in new players. This will be a big game, a huge game, and a very

:24:19.:24:29.

nervous game. Now we head to Ibrox. Rangers fans might have been a

:24:29.:24:35.

little concerned when they heard the team used because yellow pitch

:24:35.:24:45.
:24:45.:24:51.

was out of this side. - - Nicky T Rangers went about their business

:24:51.:25:01.
:25:01.:25:06.

in fine fashion. David Healy put them ahead after 35 minutes. A

:25:06.:25:13.

second goal was a quality score. Stephen Craigan scored the third

:25:13.:25:18.

for Rangers, it will go down as an own goal against the Motherwell

:25:18.:25:25.

captain. A huge sigh of relief for Rangers from the support that

:25:25.:25:33.

Rangers have started the new year with some intention.

:25:33.:25:40.

What has Lee Wallace got to do to get a goal? A comfortable win for

:25:40.:25:48.

Rangers. Very difficult after a wounding defeat on Wednesday, was

:25:48.:25:53.

just important to win. It is just about getting to victory. They have

both sides had chances to win it, but Aberdeen snatched victory with

:26:27.:26:37.

four minutes to go with this superb strike from 30 yards.

:26:41.:26:43.

Craig Brown was in the paper this week saying he wants supporters to

so many times this season. didn't seem that long ago that we

were saying that Aberdeen could be in the relegation scrap. But there

:27:08.:27:13.

spread the goals around a bit more. For me, earlier on to were not

:27:13.:27:22.

doing that well. They are showing a decent spirits.

:27:22.:27:29.

Next up it is Rugby Park. There was a very dramatic finish

right at the end the kept the home fans very happy. Some Merrington

12 minutes before half-time Kilmarnock drew level. Paul

:28:06.:28:12.

Heffernan trawl home from 12 yards. Both teams made hard work of the

:28:12.:28:16.

second half, both looking for a winner. The winning goal was a

:28:16.:28:24.

great goal. It was a long kick up the park, from 18 yards out the

:28:24.:28:34.
:28:34.:28:35.

ball was just clipped over that St Mirren goalkeeper.

:28:35.:28:38.

That result for Kilmarnock will take them up the result a couple of

:28:38.:28:48.
:28:48.:28:48.

places on goal difference. It is a very packed section of the league.

:28:48.:28:51.

I thought: Margaret - - Kilmarnock would struggle this season, but

:28:51.:29:01.
:29:01.:29:02.

they have surprised me. Now, over to the Barclays Premier League.

:29:03.:29:12.

Blackburn versus strokes city - - Stoke City. Rover has managed to

the second half, registering his first Premier League goal. Steve

The Barclays Premier League, the big guns in action so far-day,

:35:08.:35:14.

Arsenal kick-off their match at 5:30pm. Norwich City are to 9th

I do not tell you how Wolverhampton Wanderers had got on, they were at

glancing header from Steven Fletcher was turned over by Petr

Cech at the very end. It brought to an end again full of controversy

:36:05.:36:12.

and incident. Chelsea's first three.S in five games having a

:36:12.:36:17.

three draws and that defeat against Aston Villa. The analysis tonight

:36:17.:36:20.

will be about whether Frank Lampard should have been on the pitch, to

:36:20.:36:25.

score the winning goal for Chelsea. He was involved in an incident at

:36:25.:36:29.

the start of the game, he got a yellow, and perhaps should have got

:36:29.:36:33.

a red. Other Premier League players will be looking at it and thinking,

:36:33.:36:38.

I have been sent off for less. Towards the end of the game,

:36:38.:36:45.

Stephen Ward got an equaliser for Rolls. But within moments, from a

:36:45.:36:50.

ball across the face of goal, Frank Lampard caught the finishing touch.

:36:50.:36:54.

An orchestrated Chelsea goal celebration for that first goal,

:36:54.:37:00.

from Ramires. But they have sneaked at 2-1 victory against Wolves, with

:37:01.:37:08.

a winning goal from a player who should not have been on the pitch.

:37:08.:37:14.

Let's see what our pundits think of those goings on. If you think I am

:37:14.:37:19.

going to say Hearts should have won at Easter Road, Hearts have gone

:37:19.:37:25.

nine and beat him now. Aberdeen have been poor away from home, so

:37:25.:37:28.

that victory at Paradise when United have been going well, and

:37:29.:37:38.
:37:39.:37:39.

that winning goal from Arnason, I am going to say that the result of

:37:39.:37:44.

the day was that victory for Aberdeen at Paradise. Hibs have won

:37:44.:37:51.

one game at home this season. But well done to Hearts for the victory.

:37:51.:37:54.

Rangers needed to win today. And that was against Motherwell, who

:37:55.:38:02.

are not bad away from home, so 3-0 Rangers, well done, that is the one.
