It has been forecasted that Celtic would be in the League of Their Own,

:01:11.:01:17.

but it hasn't quite happened. Weekend highlight coming up and the

:01:17.:01:26.

thoughts of Steven Thomson and Pat Bonner. Let see what happened at

:01:26.:01:36.
:01:36.:01:48.

the Celtic versus Dundee United unmarked to. He has to get that on

:01:48.:01:58.
:01:58.:02:22.

target. -- he was completely Celtic. Collins spreads it wide.

:02:22.:02:27.

Another glorious opportunity for Celtic and again, it is headed wide,

:02:27.:02:37.
:02:37.:02:52.

himself. Not good news for Neil Lennon. They are in Barcelona on

:02:52.:03:02.
:03:02.:03:16.

and the striker who is usually so it deadly. He could not halt flood

:03:16.:03:26.
:03:26.:03:45.

macro's effort. -- he could not in Celtic colours for Miku. He

:03:45.:03:55.
:03:55.:04:00.

celebrates with the fans. It was a lovely move. No danger of offside.

:04:00.:04:06.

Celtic now have the advantage. That might have earned them a yellow

:04:06.:04:16.
:04:16.:04:41.

card, but I don't think they care He had only one idea and that was

:04:41.:04:51.
:04:51.:05:25.

a minute or so of regulation time to play, but it gives them

:05:25.:05:35.
:05:35.:05:35.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

:05:35.:06:36.

something to cling on to. Can Aigrette come back from Dundee.

:06:36.:06:43.

That could kick-start their season. Absolutely. The key for them today

:06:43.:06:47.

was John Daly has been playing centre half and he has been playing

:06:47.:06:55.

really well. It made such a difference. Dundee United looked

:06:55.:07:01.

very impressive. A all the credit must go to Dundee United. I think

:07:01.:07:09.

they learn from Celtic's game in midweek against St Johnstone. They

:07:09.:07:12.

obviously watched that game and thought, we cannot allow that to

:07:13.:07:19.

happen. The first half, they had three in midfield. They tighten

:07:19.:07:29.

things up. They didn't allow Kris Commons in at all. In the first 20

:07:29.:07:37.

minutes of the second half, they pushed forward. Armstrong was found

:07:37.:07:40.

on the left-hand side and he is a different class. They started to

:07:40.:07:49.

give Celtic will problems. - that will problems. They lost two goals

:07:49.:07:59.

and came back. Remarkable. This was a quality finish, wasn't it? Yes.

:07:59.:08:09.

Miku was on the bench. He came on and should really good composure.

:08:09.:08:18.

It is a composed finish as well. Miku really needed that goal. You

:08:18.:08:23.

know what it's like when you are at a big club and you get your first

:08:23.:08:33.
:08:33.:08:38.

goal. You can then continue to kick on. There was some resistance here

:08:38.:08:48.
:08:48.:08:48.

for Watt. There was, but what a great finish. He has a lot to do.

:08:48.:08:57.

He has one thing on his mind. He is direct and straight. He sends the

:08:57.:09:04.

defender the wrong way twice. There is a lot of power in the shop.

:09:04.:09:13.

The goal keeper fell back a bit. That thing about Watt is that he

:09:14.:09:21.

has a lot of confidence. He is only 18 years old. I'm not sure if he

:09:21.:09:26.

can leave the line yet, but he does have potential. Well, he got a goal,

:09:26.:09:36.
:09:36.:09:38.

so he is doing all right. Would you be critical your team? Neil Lennon

:09:38.:09:48.
:09:48.:09:52.

wasn't. Well, Charlie does run back on at the goal line, but you have

:09:52.:09:59.

to give credit where credit is due. When Dundee United equalised in

:09:59.:10:03.

stoppage time with a cross from the left, it wasn't as if Celtic have

:10:03.:10:11.

not been warned. There was a cross a couple of minutes about from the

:10:11.:10:20.

left. Ambrose, unfortunately, I think he was going for the ball.

:10:20.:10:25.

They are getting deeper and deeper and they ended up within about five

:10:25.:10:35.
:10:35.:10:37.

yards of the goal. John Daly's movement is very good. The lead

:10:37.:10:47.
:10:47.:10:47.

must come from the second centre half. Goalkeepers tend to get

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:10:59.

caught by the near post because of the angle of the ball. You are

:10:59.:11:04.

right, John Daly is getting across. You see him diving for the ball,

:11:05.:11:14.
:11:15.:11:17.

trying to clear it. What you expect on Wednesday? When you come up

:11:17.:11:22.

against a quality team like Barcelona, it is going to be

:11:22.:11:28.

difficult. They will keep hold of the ball for fun. Add in Celtic

:11:28.:11:38.
:11:38.:11:41.

will use -- I think Celtic will use the game today as a lesson. You

:11:41.:11:45.

have to be strong and keep your lines tight to play against

:11:45.:11:52.

Barcelona. They need to communicate and pass on. You cannot be

:11:52.:11:56.

offensive against Barcelona. I know it is a home game, but you have got

:11:56.:12:02.

to set in against them. If you try to be expansive, you will be three-

:12:02.:12:12.
:12:12.:12:17.

0 down before you have even called Your breath. -- caught your breath.

:12:17.:12:24.

They have a fantastic record at Celtic Park. All the best to them.

:12:24.:12:34.

Now want to St Mirren. The League Cup semi-finalists were hoping to

:12:34.:12:42.

stick care of another loss against Hibernian. -- stage career of

:12:42.:12:52.
:12:52.:13:04.

second attempt. Good interchange from the strikers. Ben Williams

:13:04.:13:14.
:13:14.:13:16.

sending it long. A mistake at the back, a chance for Leigh Griffiths.

:13:16.:13:21.

Clips the inside of the post. Others could not get there. Leigh

:13:21.:13:28.

Griffiths pounced, realised he had to go himself. Jim Goodwin follows

:13:28.:13:34.

through. It is going to be a yellow card. It will be his eighth of the

:13:34.:13:44.
:13:44.:13:47.

Maclean. Against the goalkeeper. Could not find his way past the

:13:47.:13:57.
:13:57.:14:07.

clear. Down to Kenny McLean. And in! The header away came from Tom

:14:07.:14:14.

Taiwo. It fell on to Kenny McLean. He has had some stunning goals.

:14:14.:14:21.

That is another one. Guided it beautifully low into the corner. He

:14:21.:14:31.
:14:31.:14:40.

scored midweek against Aberdeen and Leigh Griffiths. 1-1! For a 4th

:14:41.:14:47.

straight game, Leigh Griffiths gets his name on the goal scoring sheet.

:14:47.:14:54.

A good clever cross. And the confidence of Leigh Griffiths. And

:14:54.:15:04.
:15:04.:15:16.

a little hug and high 10 for the goes for gold. Leigh Griffiths

:15:16.:15:22.

equals his Hibs goal tally for last season. Goal number 11 of the

:15:22.:15:27.

season. His second of the afternoon. Hibs have come from behind to lead

:15:27.:15:35.

at Easter Road. The two-goal hero is Leigh Griffiths. Player checked

:15:35.:15:45.
:15:45.:15:48.

there by Jim Goodwin. The referee did not see it. Goodwin came in and

:15:48.:15:53.

checked him. If that is a yellow card, he is going. Alan Muir comes

:15:53.:15:57.

across. Jim Goodwin sarcastically applauding. But he has been sent

:15:57.:16:07.
:16:07.:16:10.

off. Griffiths on a hat-trick? Denied by the post. Griffiths

:16:10.:16:16.

clipped it up beautifully. The goalkeeper was stranded, no

:16:16.:16:24.

doubt. Hibs unbeaten at home in five SPL games this season. Leading

:16:24.:16:31.

here by 2-1. Leigh Griffiths. The whistle has gone, it will not count.

:16:31.:16:35.

He is denied a hat-trick. The offside flag of David Watt on the

:16:35.:16:42.

far side. The whistle blew before the shot was struck. Saints in

:16:42.:16:52.
:16:52.:16:54.

search of an equaliser. Some good headers away. A mistake! With the

:16:54.:17:04.
:17:04.:17:05.

shot, but Ben Williams with the I thought Steven Thompson should

:17:05.:17:10.

have scored. But look at the transformation compared to how Hibs

:17:10.:17:20.
:17:20.:17:23.

started the season. Just scraped Goal difference keeps them from the

:17:23.:17:29.

top. How good was Leigh Griffiths? Absolutely superb. I told him that

:17:29.:17:34.

at the end of the match. He was the difference between the two sides.

:17:34.:17:43.

He is just at the minute. -- he is just one fire at the minute. If he

:17:43.:17:49.

is only what �150,000, you would like to think someone like Hibs

:17:49.:17:54.

would get the deal done. Teams in England will be watching and

:17:54.:17:59.

someone snapping them up. He is capable of playing at high level.

:17:59.:18:09.

There is pressure on Hibs to keep them? Of course. There is no

:18:09.:18:13.

question that his ability is what keeps you going. He has the

:18:13.:18:17.

technique, movement, all of the things that makes someone a striker.

:18:17.:18:23.

The mentality is something people questioned. I think that has been

:18:23.:18:28.

fixed. He has shown maturity this season. He is an unbelievable

:18:28.:18:34.

talent. I think he will be knocking on the Scotland's Watson. What did

:18:34.:18:40.

we think of the second yellow card for Jim Goodwin? No doubt about the

:18:40.:18:50.

first one. -- I think he will be knocking on the Scotland squad soon.

:18:50.:18:56.

There does not seem to be much. But when you see the replay, I think

:18:56.:19:01.

Jim Goodwin lifted his elbow. not think he has done anything that

:19:01.:19:07.

warrants a yellow card. It is not the referee that gives it, it is

:19:07.:19:13.

the linesman. I think he was unfortunate to be sent off. And he

:19:13.:19:20.

went down holding his face, I do not know why. He is a competitor on

:19:20.:19:25.

the pitch. I know him as a young one growing up. You know him as a

:19:25.:19:32.

colleague. Yes. He is definitely not a dirty player. You could call

:19:32.:19:39.

it exuberance. But the referees need to make decisions. Something

:19:39.:19:46.

was seen. The wrong decision for me. We should catch up on your career.

:19:46.:19:52.

One of the goals of the season? Not the most acrobatic overhead

:19:52.:20:02.
:20:02.:20:02.

kick. The crowd going crazy makes it. Sewage -- should you be doing

:20:02.:20:10.

that at this stage of your career? Probably not. It would be best

:20:10.:20:20.

being so close to the end of the game. And you are superman died? --

:20:20.:20:28.

your Superman dive? I must point out, only goalkeepers can handle

:20:28.:20:36.

the ball. I cannot explain it. did look bemused there. I have

:20:36.:20:45.

seen... I have seen people do that. There was no reason to do that.

:20:45.:20:49.

could be a reserve goalkeeper? Perhaps.

:20:49.:20:53.

Kilmarnock won at Celtic Park last weekend. Inverness were midweek

:20:53.:20:56.

victors against Rangers in the League Cup. They went head-to-head

:20:56.:21:06.
:21:06.:21:11.

at Rugby Park. Some hotly-debated impressive wins over Celtic and

:21:11.:21:17.

Rangers. The last few days in buoyant mood. Andrew Shinnie goes

:21:17.:21:27.
:21:27.:21:32.

down. The corner kick has been given, which should not have been.

:21:32.:21:39.

Firing it wide. A good first touch from Rory McKenzie. A good shot

:21:39.:21:49.
:21:49.:21:53.

away. That young man looked lively. A good challenge by Michael Nelson.

:21:53.:22:00.

But Andrew Shinnie! Caley Thistle had the breakthrough! It is not

:22:00.:22:04.

good defending by Kilmarnock. But lovely play from Billy McKay,

:22:04.:22:09.

setting up Andrew Shinnie. Having scored at Ibrox on Wednesday, he is

:22:09.:22:19.
:22:19.:22:33.

continue. Rory McKenzie wanted a penalty there. It is difficult to

:22:33.:22:43.
:22:43.:22:45.

tell. It is a penalty kick. Inverness Caley Thistle have a

:22:45.:22:55.
:22:55.:23:14.

glorious opportunity to double direction. Goes for the gold.

:23:14.:23:21.

What a strike by Liam Kelly! A hero at Celtic Park last weekend.

:23:21.:23:26.

And he is on the scoresheet once more. A quite tremendous drive that

:23:26.:23:36.
:23:36.:23:58.

An attempt from Sutherland. Cameron Bell takes in down. -- takes it

:23:58.:24:06.

down. It is a penalty kick and Bell is off. Draper was certainly clean

:24:06.:24:15.

through. The penalty is given. And scored by Billy McKay. Bell's

:24:15.:24:20.

replacement could do nothing to stop that. Kilmarnock behind once

:24:20.:24:30.
:24:30.:24:33.

more. Not exactly decisive defending from Caley Thistle. They

:24:33.:24:41.

seek to hold on to this 2-1. It is pushed away to safety. Kilmarnock

:24:41.:24:51.
:24:51.:25:00.

desperately searching for the target. The goalkeeper relieved to

:25:00.:25:10.
:25:10.:25:14.

see that fly over. Can Kilmarnock find a late leveller? Inside the

:25:14.:25:24.
:25:24.:25:27.

box! But just sliding away from Inverness nine games unbeaten. How

:25:27.:25:34.

deep -- how good have they become? Scoring every game played. Andrew

:25:34.:25:43.

Shinnie is having an amazing season. And some young boys on loan. They

:25:43.:25:48.

are looking incredible going forward. And their coaches keep

:25:48.:25:56.

them solid defensively. And the two boys from down south, protecting in

:25:56.:26:00.

the back, and Inverness looking very good. I would not be surprised

:26:00.:26:06.

to see them in the Firth of Forth area at the end of the season. I

:26:06.:26:12.

think they are the real deal this year. -- in the third or the fourth

:26:12.:26:18.

area at the end of the season. you think that was a penalty?

:26:18.:26:27.

not think so. At this angle, there could have been some touching.

:26:27.:26:33.

he goes down straightaway, from the point of contact, but he takes an

:26:33.:26:38.

extra step, which makes it dubious for me. Yes. When you are running

:26:38.:26:43.

at pace, you can lose your balance and it looks awful when you are

:26:43.:26:49.

down. And the referee can be filled by that. This was Andrew Shinnie

:26:49.:26:53.

moving at pace into the box and a penalty given against Michael

:26:53.:26:59.

Nelson. Great play from Andrew Shinnie, but Michael Nelson's body

:26:59.:27:05.

comes forward in true Andrew Shinnie -- into Andrew Shinnie. I

:27:05.:27:12.

think he knows that it is a penalty. Are considering an appeal against

:27:12.:27:20.

the red card shown to Cameron Bell. The rule is there now. If it is a

:27:20.:27:26.

penalty and he is taken down, there could be a goalscoring opportunity.

:27:26.:27:30.

Is there contact? Does there have to be? If he does not try to step

:27:30.:27:38.

over him, there will be contacts. - - contact. Cameron Bell threw his

:27:38.:27:43.

hands up in the air. The player would have to jump over him. I have

:27:43.:27:47.

been there before and it is difficult for the goalkeeper,

:27:47.:27:52.

concentrating on the ball, momentum going forward. You skies have to

:27:52.:27:58.

knock the ball away. Absolutely. The voice of a goalkeeper. Right at

:27:59.:28:04.

the end of the match, an interesting incident. He shakes his

:28:04.:28:14.

head on the pitch there, says nothing to the referee. And

:28:14.:28:18.

reported on a sarcastic retort. Defining sarcasm might be difficult.

:28:18.:28:26.

Yes. Managers cannot win. If something is said, you could be up

:28:26.:28:32.

against their SFA. He will make a point that, and I think that is

:28:32.:28:37.

being made, of appealing against the red card. I am not sure if he

:28:37.:28:42.

has a case. Once you go towards the referee, what ever you do, you

:28:42.:28:45.

could be in trouble. Early-season relegation favourites

:28:46.:28:48.

Dundee went into their home game against Hearts with only one League

:28:49.:28:52.

win to their name. Mind you, that win did come against the Tynecastle

:28:52.:29:02.
:29:02.:29:30.

furiously claiming for a penalty and you can see their point.

:29:30.:29:36.

Brilliant! Of Dundee are ahead midway through the first half.

:29:36.:29:42.

Although concerns about the penalty claim have gone now. They are in

:29:42.:29:52.
:29:52.:30:19.

front against Hearts. Problems for A real chance for Dundee to get

:30:19.:30:29.
:30:29.:30:50.

themselves in front, but they could League Cup semi-finalists try to

:30:50.:31:00.
:31:00.:31:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

:31:00.:31:53.

unpunished. Hearts chasing an believe he didn't get a touch on

:31:53.:32:03.
:32:03.:32:08.

They will need to beat teams other than Hearts. Yes, but there was a

:32:08.:32:14.

fantastic game. I was surprised that Hearts last. I was watching

:32:14.:32:19.

them during the week, and even though they were down to 10 men,

:32:19.:32:25.

they put in a great effort. It probably showed on them yesterday

:32:25.:32:31.

because they struggled a bit. But Dundee and Barry Smith will be

:32:31.:32:41.
:32:41.:32:44.

delighted. They needed a result from somewhere. Fantastic result

:32:44.:32:49.

for them. You do not want to be thinking too much about how good

:32:49.:32:56.

that is for Dundee. What was eight is now five. There will be looking

:32:56.:33:06.
:33:06.:33:06.

at that and thinking, we are only five points away from second to the

:33:06.:33:12.

bottom. The League is really tight. I am looking at it the other way.

:33:12.:33:22.
:33:22.:33:25.

Two wins and we could before. The League has not even that yesterday.

:33:25.:33:35.
:33:35.:33:52.

The story of the Motherwell versus back after their midweek thrashing.

:33:52.:34:00.

Jamie Murphy was in the right place for Motherwell. Minutes later, the

:34:00.:34:05.

home side almost allowed Motherwell a second. The pass to the keeper

:34:05.:34:14.

was not great, neither was the striker's efforts. A good ball in

:34:14.:34:24.
:34:24.:34:34.

from Stephen a claim. -- Stephen MacLean. Murphy was eventually sent

:34:34.:34:39.

on his way. He still had plenty to do though, but there was little

:34:39.:34:49.
:34:49.:34:51.

resistance from the St Johnstone Defence. There were chances for

:34:51.:35:01.
:35:01.:35:03.

both sides in the second half. Nicky Law finished off a move he

:35:03.:35:13.
:35:13.:35:20.

started. Darren Randolph was tested. He did well to get the hustle back?

:35:20.:35:30.
:35:30.:35:47.

chance. That did not spark a late rally of St Johnstone. Instead,

:35:47.:35:55.

Murphy went in search of his hat- trick. Motherwell are back on track.

:35:55.:36:05.
:36:05.:36:11.

St Johnstone are hurting after This doesn't happen often enough.

:36:11.:36:19.

There is a lot of talent, but it is not brought to the table enough.

:36:19.:36:25.

is not a defensive masterclass either, is it? Not a tall, but for

:36:25.:36:30.

Motherwell it was issued to win. They need to get back to the

:36:30.:36:37.

consistency they showed last year. Jimmy has the technical ability, a

:36:37.:36:47.
:36:47.:36:48.

really good ability, but he really needs to build his strength. He has

:36:48.:36:55.

lovely composure here. He has plenty of time to think about it.

:36:55.:37:04.

Sometimes that is about then. I love about the third goal for

:37:04.:37:08.

Motherwell from Nicky Law is that he was halfway down midfield and he

:37:08.:37:13.

could have stayed there. What a goal. He is a hard-working player.

:37:13.:37:19.

You don't see him in this position very often, but what a great finish.

:37:19.:37:23.

He get in there with great composure. He finishes it really

:37:23.:37:33.
:37:33.:37:35.

well. Good refereeing as well. Absolutely. A bad day for St

:37:35.:37:39.

Johnstone, but they have to look at the big picture. They have had a

:37:39.:37:42.

fantastic run and it is difficult to maintain that level of

:37:42.:37:47.

performance, no matter how many games you win. There is always a

:37:47.:37:57.
:37:57.:38:00.
