Good afternoon and welcome to the Results Show.

:00:18.:00:24.

So we're only on for 40 minutes this week.

:00:25.:00:26.

Like Ronny Deila, I asked for more time, but I'm not getting it.

:00:27.:00:29.

One used to play for Celtic and Dundee United,

:00:30.:00:35.

The games are afoot, so let's get the stories so far from

:00:36.:00:40.

We can go to Pittodrie Stadium. 2-0 to the Dons. A poor opening 45. The

:00:41.:00:56.

points look safe for Aberdeen here at Pittodrie. Off we go to our next

:00:57.:01:03.

port of call which is going to be at Tynecastle Stadium. Hearts play

:01:04.:01:06.

Hamilton. The points look safe here for the home side. Hearts leading by

:01:07.:01:14.

2-0 against Hamilton. Goals in the first half from Buaben Abankwah and

:01:15.:01:20.

Sutchuin-Djoum. Johnstone are home to Kilmarnock. A super start by the

:01:21.:01:27.

visitors. Smith powering in an header off the bar. St Johnstone

:01:28.:01:34.

eased back into it. O'Halloran slotted McDonald. They were rewarded

:01:35.:01:38.

when Kane powered home a second. Strong comeback from them thechl are

:01:39.:01:43.

on target for another win here. 2-1 up St Johnstone. Motherwell at home

:01:44.:01:49.

to Inverness. It's good reading for Inverness at this stage. They lead

:01:50.:01:55.

by 3-1. Tansey penalty was twice taken. A Storey strike before the

:01:56.:02:03.

interval put Inverness 2-0 up. Vigurs made it three. Moult has

:02:04.:02:10.

pulled one back for Motherwell. To Dens Park. Dundee against Partick

:02:11.:02:17.

Thistle. Lindsay's first goal for Thistle. They are en route for all

:02:18.:02:21.

three points. A simple header from a corner. Dundee have been poor. They

:02:22.:02:25.

have little chance of a comeback as things stand. Rangers at home to

:02:26.:02:36.

Alloa. Rangers 3, Alloa 0. Rangers looked to have rediscovered winning

:02:37.:02:45.

ways on Remembrance Day. Waghorn and Tavernier scored making it 3-0

:02:46.:02:50.

against Alloa who are down to 10-men. Now to Hibs against St

:02:51.:03:07.

Mirren. Cummings got his 18 of the season along can Keatings. Kelly

:03:08.:03:14.

gave St Mirren the lead. Anything striding you, Mark? Not too many

:03:15.:03:22.

surprises. Inverness 3-1 up? Probably that one out of them all. I

:03:23.:03:26.

thought Motherwell, after getting the win last week, I thought would

:03:27.:03:31.

have kept them on. I was perhaps expecting a better performance.

:03:32.:03:37.

Great for John Hughes going down there and Vigurs getting a goal. He

:03:38.:03:41.

must have worked that one after being released in the summer.

:03:42.:03:45.

Aberdeen worth their 2-0 lead? I think so. From the bits and pieces

:03:46.:03:48.

we have seen, Aberdeen have had plenty of the ball. It's no surprise

:03:49.:03:51.

to me I think they have managed to get something in this game. Hayes

:03:52.:03:58.

created one and scored one. When Aberdeen were at their best they

:03:59.:04:04.

were providing the opportunity and players couldn't pin them down. It

:04:05.:04:08.

wouldn't surprise me if Aberdeen went on another run. St Johnstone

:04:09.:04:15.

2-1 up. They are in-form. They are. They are scoring goals. Last season

:04:16.:04:20.

they were defending so well, getting the odd goal. They seemed to have

:04:21.:04:25.

got it right at both ends. Defending resolutely, they are scoring a lot

:04:26.:04:30.

of goals. O'Halloran is in the form of his life. You would bank him on

:04:31.:04:36.

scoring in every game. St Johnstone scored 27 goals this season. Last

:04:37.:04:44.

season, in total, they scored 34. They never really did sign a

:04:45.:04:48.

replacement for Stevie May or provide the regular goalscoring he

:04:49.:04:54.

did for the team. O'Halloran added that to his game. He is in good

:04:55.:04:59.

form. Getting in behind teams. Using his pace and more experienced. You

:05:00.:05:03.

can't underplay the sporns of Stevie McClean. He was a great player for

:05:04.:05:09.

them, link play, providing support for Stevie May. When he is fit he is

:05:10.:05:13.

a big part of that team. It's helpful, he is reworking his defence

:05:14.:05:18.

at the moment. Hearts 2-0 up at home to Hamilton. We were watching

:05:19.:05:22.

pictures. Seems comfortable? Straight-forward for Hearts. They

:05:23.:05:26.

have been very impressive today in and around the box. Their passing

:05:27.:05:34.

and inter play has been impressive. The goal was terrific, terrific

:05:35.:05:38.

composure. Hamilton haven't really offered anything in an attacking

:05:39.:05:42.

sense. Partick Thistle. I look at the form of both teams,

:05:43.:05:47.

notwithstanding Thistle's defeat last week. They are doing well.

:05:48.:05:52.

Dundee not doing well. However, they have just scored? We can get the

:05:53.:05:58.

details. It didn't look as if they would score this afternoon, they

:05:59.:06:06.

have. It's is Hemmings who came on. Good build-up play involving Stuart

:06:07.:06:09.

and Loy. It's game on here. Five minutes left. It's Dundee 1, Partick

:06:10.:06:18.

Thistle 1. A word for Dundee when I said what a bad run they were in.

:06:19.:06:23.

Let us see if it wins for St Mirren. No! Richard said, typical Hibs. Put

:06:24.:06:35.

in an impressive performance last week and then one behind. You feared

:06:36.:06:39.

it would be a slipup. Hibs have battled away and ran away with that

:06:40.:06:44.

one. Tough times for St Mirren. They will be the top-scorers in the

:06:45.:06:49.

Championship today. We fancied Rangers to come up with a big score.

:06:50.:06:54.

They were ahead early on against Alloa. Are you surprised they

:06:55.:06:58.

haven't increased that lead A little bit. Alloa have the worst defensive

:06:59.:07:05.

record and the bottom team. If you have lost a gameplaying the bottom

:07:06.:07:10.

side is the perfect fixture for Rangers at home. They scored their

:07:11.:07:14.

three goals early. We expected them to add to the scoreline. Maybe Alloa

:07:15.:07:18.

have pinned everyone behind the ball and they are down to 10-men. It

:07:19.:07:24.

wouldn't surprise me if there were late goals. Rangers have kept going

:07:25.:07:28.

to the 90th minute and scored a lot of goals. That is when their fitness

:07:29.:07:33.

tells there. Might be additional goals in that game. Getting back on

:07:34.:07:40.

winning ways was important after losing out to Hibs. Now back to the

:07:41.:07:47.

grounds. Rooney and Hayes with the goals for the home side. A poor

:07:48.:07:52.

first half. Shinnie and Flood had decent chances inside the box.

:07:53.:07:58.

Shinnie's effort well save. Flood's half-volley high. Hayes whipped the

:07:59.:08:03.

ball in from the left hand side. United failed to deal with it.

:08:04.:08:06.

Rooney got his ninth goal of the season from close-range. United

:08:07.:08:09.

started to sneak forward, perhaps sensing they had nothing to lose.

:08:10.:08:14.

They were punished by an individual piece of brilliance by Hayes,

:08:15.:08:18.

bursting down the left hand side. Fired low and into the back of the

:08:19.:08:23.

net. After that it's pretty much been all Aberdeen. The side's

:08:24.:08:32.

performance has been rubbish with a capital "R" I can't manage the

:08:33.:08:34.

manager will have much to say after capital "R" I can't manage the

:08:35.:08:40.

this. Let us hear from Alasdair Lamont. Are they still two up? They

:08:41.:08:46.

are. They are easing to victory here. It's been pretty comfortable

:08:47.:08:54.

for them. They have never been outlassed but second best to Hearts.

:08:55.:09:03.

Buaben Abankwah scored from 25-yards out. The keeper might have felt he

:09:04.:09:09.

should have kept it out. It fired past him and into the net. They made

:09:10.:09:19.

a gool save from a header at 1-0. Hearts then scored their second as

:09:20.:09:25.

Wilson was rightly saying, terrific composure inside the area after the

:09:26.:09:29.

cross from the left side from Nicolson. Unselfish play to set up

:09:30.:09:37.

Sutchuin-Djoum for a tap-in. Comfortable for Hearts in this

:09:38.:09:40.

second-half. Hearts might have scored one or two more but for a

:09:41.:09:48.

couple of good saves. 2-, edging towards three-points away from

:09:49.:09:50.

league leaders Celtic. There has been a red card at

:09:51.:10:00.

McDiarmid Park. I was about to say this is comfortable for St

:10:01.:10:05.

Johnstone, but a red card, it appeared to be a 2 footed challenge

:10:06.:10:12.

on Stephen Smith. It's not clear if he got the ball. Off the party went.

:10:13.:10:18.

Three minutes or so left. They fought back from the opening goal,

:10:19.:10:29.

O'Halloran and Kane scoring. Is there a thrilling climax at Fir

:10:30.:10:34.

Park? Let's find out. Motherwell are trying to make it that way, but

:10:35.:10:40.

Inverness are still leading 3-1. Inverness took the lead through a

:10:41.:10:45.

retaken penalty by Greg Tansey. His first effort was superbly saved. The

:10:46.:10:49.

referee felt there was encroachment from the Motherwell defenders into

:10:50.:10:53.

the box before he had struck the effort. He got the chance to retake

:10:54.:10:57.

it and took it down the middle to open the scoring. Miles Storey fired

:10:58.:11:01.

Inverness to open the scoring. Miles Storey fired Inverness two Liam

:11:02.:11:06.

Grimshaw hit the crossbar for Motherwell, but it would not go in.

:11:07.:11:11.

Iain Vigurs increased the lead to 3-1, with a sweet volley from just

:11:12.:11:17.

inside the box, straight off the training ground. Corner from Greg

:11:18.:11:20.

Tansey, found Iain Vigurs arriving late and he whacked it into the back

:11:21.:11:28.

of the net. Louis Moult has pulled one back for Motherwell. 1-3, six

:11:29.:11:35.

minutes left to play. Let's find out if there is any sign of a winner

:11:36.:11:47.

between Dundee and Partick Thistle. One-way traffic at the moment, after

:11:48.:11:52.

that Hemmings equaliser at 85 minutes. It was probably deserved,

:11:53.:11:57.

they have pummelled the Partick Thistle goal in this half. Liam

:11:58.:12:01.

Lindsey, with his first ever goal early on. 5067 inside dens Park. The

:12:02.:12:08.

home side were booed off at half-time, they will be cheering if

:12:09.:12:12.

they can grab a winner. We will set to Ibrox again. Any advance on 3-0?

:12:13.:12:23.

No, into injury time, waiting to see how many minutes. Fairly easy stuff

:12:24.:12:28.

for Rangers. The fans might be disappointed they didn't build on

:12:29.:12:34.

their lead. Martyn Waghorn, cool as you like, chesting and volleying

:12:35.:12:40.

after a mix-up from the Alloa defenders, and a weak clearance from

:12:41.:12:47.

the keeper. 2-0 on 14 minutes, a trademark James Tavernier free

:12:48.:12:56.

kick, 25 yards out. It curled into the top corner. He's now on ten

:12:57.:12:59.

goals for the season, and he's a right back. Alloa had a chance to

:13:00.:13:05.

get back into it, the former Newcastle and Sunderland striker

:13:06.:13:12.

Michael Chopra, he hit the bar. They were made to pay for missing the

:13:13.:13:17.

chance. Three -0144 minutes, Martyn Waghorn again. A volley from about

:13:18.:13:24.

ten yards out. As I said, Rangers have not built on it. Alloa are down

:13:25.:13:36.

to ten men. Eddie Ferns sent off. There is about a minute of injury

:13:37.:13:41.

time left. Safe to say that Rangers will get all three points. The other

:13:42.:13:44.

teams in the top three in the Championship, it's looking good for

:13:45.:13:50.

them. The Gurney, 4-1 up, a hat-trick for James Keatings.

:13:51.:13:58.

Another go at Ibrox. Let's rejoin Kenny. Just what I said it looked

:13:59.:14:04.

like it was said to be 3-0, it has turned into 4-0. I am pretty sure it

:14:05.:14:09.

is Nicky Clarke with the goal, a header into the top right corner,

:14:10.:14:13.

following a bit of pressure from Rangers. It looks like Nicky

:14:14.:14:18.

Clarke, who scored two against Alloa last season, he's got another one.

:14:19.:14:23.

Lots happening around the country. I am intrigued about what John Barnes

:14:24.:14:36.

said about the Iain Vigurs goal, straight off the training ground.

:14:37.:14:38.

Does that happen a lot? Did you ever score one off the training ground? I

:14:39.:14:41.

didn't score many, all of mine worth looks. -- were flukes. It's great

:14:42.:14:50.

when it comes off. We were watching the Aberdeen pictures coming in, the

:14:51.:14:53.

way they celebrated, the players were almost delirious? It will be

:14:54.:15:00.

relief, they had a horrible run of form. They went from one extreme to

:15:01.:15:03.

another, eight wins and then suddenly losing games. It's just

:15:04.:15:09.

getting it off their backs, get a win and feel better. Full-time at

:15:10.:15:20.

Pittodrie. Their dire run is over, the Irish pair of Rooney and Hayes

:15:21.:15:23.

with the goals. The first half was dreadfully dull. It was played

:15:24.:15:30.

almost exclusively in the Dundee United half. Shinnie and Flood came

:15:31.:15:39.

closest. Just minutes after the break, Hayes floated in a cross from

:15:40.:15:45.

the left. The United defence didn't hear it and Adam Rooney nodded home

:15:46.:15:49.

his ninth of the season. United were punished by some individual

:15:50.:15:58.

brilliance from Johnny Hayes. He lashed the ball low into the bottom

:15:59.:16:06.

corner. United remain anchored to the foot of the table. It finished

:16:07.:16:14.

2-0. And then scheduled interaction on the line, I apologise. Let's join

:16:15.:16:19.

the uninterrupted Brian MacLachlan. It finished 1-0. It looked like all

:16:20.:16:29.

three points would be heading to Maryhill, especially after Liam

:16:30.:16:33.

Linsey scored with his first ever goal for Partick Thistle after five

:16:34.:16:42.

minutes. He jumped well ahead of the defence to head at home. They had

:16:43.:16:48.

chances to increase their lead as well. They had a free header at the

:16:49.:16:53.

back post, into the side netting. Dundee could not find their stride.

:16:54.:16:58.

Booed off at half-time, slightly better in the second half.

:16:59.:17:01.

Eventually, they did find their way through. Substitute Hemmings, five

:17:02.:17:06.

minutes from time, slotted the ball home after good play from Loy Ann

:17:07.:17:14.

Steward. That is the way it finished in front of 5067 fans. Let's beat a

:17:15.:17:25.

path to Perth. That was being watched by Martin. Full-time, 2-0.

:17:26.:17:31.

St Johnstone strengthen their grip on fourth place on the Premiership

:17:32.:17:34.

after coming from behind for their third successive league victory.

:17:35.:17:43.

Stephen Smith's header clipped the underside of the crossbar and went

:17:44.:17:46.

in. They took some time to recover, but they worked their way back in.

:17:47.:17:52.

Stephen McClane teed up but Halloran. They went ahead when Chris

:17:53.:17:59.

Kane found space to draw a powerful shot past Jamie McDonnell. Despite a

:18:00.:18:05.

late red card for Liam Craig, they held out for a win. Hearts's form

:18:06.:18:16.

has been continuing as well. Yes, good form that they are not the

:18:17.:18:21.

moment. This is their sixth match unbeaten in the lead, a fourth

:18:22.:18:25.

straight win. That has moved them within three points of Celtic. An

:18:26.:18:30.

assured when. At times it was ill tempered. The home side stamped the

:18:31.:18:35.

authority on the game with goals from Prince Buaben and then a tap in

:18:36.:18:45.

from Arnaud Djoum. The away team have gone five games without a win.

:18:46.:18:53.

Impressive stuff from Hearts. Wright, off we go to St Mirren Park

:18:54.:18:58.

in the Championship, they were at home to head in the Championship,

:18:59.:19:07.

they were at home to header -- Hibs. Great life at the moment if you

:19:08.:19:12.

support Hibs. Not so much for St Mirren. Hibs were fantastic. Some of

:19:13.:19:22.

the play was terrific. Most of the action in the first half. A goal

:19:23.:19:25.

from Sean Kelly put St Mirren in front, a good finish after the Hibs

:19:26.:19:35.

defence could not clear the corner. James Keatings got two in two

:19:36.:19:39.

minutes. Both left foot finishes. The second one was absolutely

:19:40.:19:43.

terrific from 25 yards out. The second half, not so much action.

:19:44.:19:47.

Keatings got his hat-trick on the 78th minute. A of head-to-head about

:19:48.:19:57.

who was going to take the penalty. It was low, past the goalkeeper.

:19:58.:20:03.

Terrific week for Hibs, not so good for St Mirren. But Hibs have to keep

:20:04.:20:06.

winning if Rangers keep winning, today they did it in style. We stay

:20:07.:20:13.

in the Championship, Raith Rovers, at home to Falkirk. Finished one -

:20:14.:20:21.

two. Falkirk opened a 6-point gap over Raith Rovers in the

:20:22.:20:23.

Championship. The first half had been pretty poor, lacking quality

:20:24.:20:28.

and full of long balls. No real short, passing football. It sparked

:20:29.:20:33.

into life on 41 minutes. A slip by Danny Rogers allowed in Mark

:20:34.:20:37.

Stewart, who reacted quickly and rolled the ball into the back of the

:20:38.:20:41.

net. Falkirk replied two minutes later, Alston tapped at home. In

:20:42.:20:56.

Falkirk took the lead. It was an impressive goal from Baird. Raith

:20:57.:21:05.

Rovers searched for an equaliser, but Danny Rogers redeemed himself in

:21:06.:21:11.

the Falkirk goal and he did it again in the final minutes. A great effort

:21:12.:21:19.

from John Daly. If you are wondering why we have not had a full-time

:21:20.:21:22.

reporter from Motherwell against Inverness, it is because they are

:21:23.:21:25.

still playing. Over to Ibrox in the Championship match there. Was 4-0.

:21:26.:21:36.

Rangers rediscovering winning ways with a resounding victory over

:21:37.:21:42.

relegation threat of Alloa. Clinical strikes by Martyn Waghorn and James

:21:43.:21:46.

Tavernier had the wasps worrying about a stinging defeat. Michael

:21:47.:21:51.

Tavernier had the wasps worrying Chopra pulled one back before by

:21:52.:21:56.

Korn volleyed in a third. Edward Ferns was sent off for Alloa. Not

:21:57.:22:05.

quite the 7-0 scoreline Rangers beat Alloa buy in 2012, but enough to

:22:06.:22:09.

keep the gap at the top to five points. Still playing at Fir Park.

:22:10.:22:13.

John Barnes has something to tell us. They have just actually finished

:22:14.:22:20.

in the last few seconds a few seconds before that, Stephen McManus

:22:21.:22:23.

was sent off, the Motherwell captain. It was his second yellow

:22:24.:22:27.

card of the afternoon. It was a on Danilo -- Danny Lopez. The referee

:22:28.:22:40.

then blew the whistle on a very competitive match, which ended up a

:22:41.:22:44.

comfortable win for Inverness, when you look at the scoreline, 3-1. John

:22:45.:22:49.

Hughes will have enjoyed this one. A touchline ban meant he watched the

:22:50.:22:53.

action from the stand. He will have seen Greg Tansey scoring from the

:22:54.:22:58.

penalty spot after ten minutes. It was retaken, the judgment of

:22:59.:23:02.

encroachment by the Motherwell defenders. It was saved by, Ripley

:23:03.:23:08.

the first time. Miles Storey added another, and Iain Vigurs made a 3-0.

:23:09.:23:15.

Louis Moult pulled a goal back for Motherwell. It was nothing more than

:23:16.:23:20.

a consolation. Inverness pick up their first win in five matches. It

:23:21.:23:31.

finished 1-3. Thanks very much. That takes us nicely onto the classified

:23:32.:23:32.

round-up. You will find full-time results on

:23:33.:23:40.

the FA Cup on the BBC sport website. Rangers back to winning ways. Five

:23:41.:27:00.

clear of Hibs. Hibs had an awin as did Falkirk. Bottom-of-the-table, no

:27:01.:27:03.

change. Three points clear are Annan

:27:04.:27:32.

Athletic. East Stirlingshire won, but they are bottom-of-the-table.

:27:33.:27:35.

Bottom-of-the-table. Aston Villa yet to play this

:27:36.:27:53.

weekend. Sunderland lost as did Bournemouth.

:27:54.:28:01.

Hull stay top. They lead Brighton Hove Albion on goal difference. The

:28:02.:28:12.

bottom three there, Charlton Athletic, Bolton Wanderers and

:28:13.:28:14.

Rotherham We can go to our round-up of the

:28:15.:28:26.

matches. We start at the Vitality Stadium, the home ground of

:28:27.:28:30.

Bournemouth. They were playing Newcastle United. Daylight robbery

:28:31.:28:38.

for Newcastle. A cherished first away win of the season. They took

:28:39.:28:42.

the lead when Perez shot from the edge of the box. The keeper should

:28:43.:28:47.

have done better. Elliott gave one of his finest performances in the

:28:48.:28:55.

Newcastle goal. Denying King. Smith flicked the bar. The home side

:28:56.:29:01.

dominant. When Elliott saved at the start of the second-half from

:29:02.:29:07.

Gosling and a chance went over you sensed home belief was draining.

:29:08.:29:13.

Newcastle's defiance was growing more. Bournemouth ran out of steam.

:29:14.:29:18.

Cruel for the home side. What a win for Newcastle. Elliott was

:29:19.:29:24.

outstanding. Leicester City's good run continued with a win over

:29:25.:29:29.

Watford. Leicester City go joint top in the Premier League in November.

:29:30.:29:33.

Would you believe it, it took them until the middle of April to get

:29:34.:29:38.

this many points last season. It is thanks in large part to nine in a

:29:39.:29:43.

row from Leicester's number nine, Jamie Vardy smashed home a penalty

:29:44.:29:47.

to make it 12 in 12 matches. Mahrez gave him the ball. He is the regular

:29:48.:29:53.

penalty taker. Vardy made no mistake. Gomez brought him down for

:29:54.:29:57.

the penalty. He didn't have the best of the games. He let in from Kante.

:29:58.:30:14.

Leicester's day. They beat Watford 2-1. Manchester United's day at Old

:30:15.:30:18.

Trafford. They were winners over West Brom. Brom. Still not vintage

:30:19.:30:32.

from Manchester United. Lingard, his second Premier League start, scored

:30:33.:30:36.

his first goal for the club. Albion were more adventurous and should

:30:37.:30:44.

have equalised. Berahino on as a sub missed a chance. Headed it over the

:30:45.:30:52.

bar. United got a penalty, Mata put it away. United are just one-point

:30:53.:30:57.

behind the leaders. Doesn't sound like vintage Manchester United,

:30:58.:31:01.

Mark, but, but, at least they scored a couple of goals, the last two in

:31:02.:31:06.

the league have been goalness? Not vintage for Manchester United fans

:31:07.:31:10.

just now. I said a couple of weeks - I'm bored watching them now. I never

:31:11.:31:13.

thought I would hear myself say about Manchester United. I used to

:31:14.:31:18.

love watching them, 4-4-2, plenty of crosses and goals. It doesn't seem

:31:19.:31:22.

to be the case these days at Old Trafford. Louis van Gaal says the

:31:23.:31:26.

same about this show when he watches at home. Leicester City, Vardy

:31:27.:31:31.

scored again today. A penalty, fair enough, what a record he has. What a

:31:32.:31:35.

record Leicester have got Remarkable. It is funny how the team

:31:36.:31:39.

gets into winning ways and Remarkable. It is funny how the team

momentum going. Having a consistent goalscorer. He has been prolific all

season. Mark said he was 28. He has had a career at the lower end of the

game hechl has this chance to play at the top-flight.

game hechl has this chance to play it. He is quick, direct, clinical in

game recently. They bounced back from

The header into Howson's path, he turned it home for his head off the

turn. Not a great game. Not a classic, too long bogged down. I

:33:02.:33:05.

won't by the DVD. Norwich won't care about the quality. Three points for

three points. We are supporters of Alec Neil. Sunderland were in need

:33:29.:33:31.

of points. They were at home Southampton. Watched by Eilidh

:33:32.:33:38.

Barbour. The final whistle goes. It is their first win here since 2003.

:33:39.:33:42.

Six games they have gone previously without a win here. It took a

:33:43.:33:48.

penalty to find a way through Sunderland's robust defence.

:33:49.:33:51.

Deserved win for Southampton. Pantilimon couldn't be breached in

:33:52.:33:56.

the first half. Pulling off two fabulous saves to deny Tadic and

:33:57.:34:09.

Mane. Tadic took the opportunity to continue Southampton's unbeaten away

:34:10.:34:16.

record this season. Finished here Sunderland 0, Southampton 1. Let us

:34:17.:34:22.

find out what happened at Upton Park, West Ham United at home to

:34:23.:34:29.

Everton. James Husband. West Ham breaking a run of defeats against

:34:30.:34:35.

Everton. Two fine goals lit up the first. Lanzini curled West Ham into

:34:36.:34:46.

the need. Lukaku made it level. Reid headed over for The Hammers. A draw

:34:47.:34:56.

about right. Payet went off early in the second-half. A big game for Jose

:34:57.:35:02.

Mourinho tonight against Stoke. He's banned from the touchline. Didn't

:35:03.:35:07.

seem seem to do Inverness any harm? Do you think it might help Chelsea

:35:08.:35:13.

the players under pressure that Jose is not on the sidelines Perhaps.

:35:14.:35:18.

Maybe it will bring them together. I think the players are backing

:35:19.:35:21.

Mourinho. Although it doesn't seem like that on the pitch with the

:35:22.:35:25.

results. I think he is liked in the dressing room. Perhaps it gives them

:35:26.:35:32.

siege mentality that they have lost their manager. They struggle when

:35:33.:35:37.

they go to Stoke. They have won three times in the league so far

:35:38.:35:43.

this season? Incredible. Same group of players. World-class players

:35:44.:35:47.

playing so badly. You had can't put your finger on what has gone wrong

:35:48.:35:53.

there. Jose Mourinho's under even more pressure than Ronny Deila. He

:35:54.:35:56.

is under pressure after that Europa League defeat in midweek. However,

:35:57.:36:00.

Celtic back in domestic football tomorrow. They are away to Ross

:36:01.:36:07.

County. Let us recap on the league table in Europe after their sicked

:36:08.:36:13.

defeat to Molde. That looks pretty grim, doesn't it? It does. Fantastic

:36:14.:36:20.

for Molde. Who would have thought that? Celtic, looks terrible. Put a

:36:21.:36:28.

positive spin on it. They are only three points - Celtic have to look

:36:29.:36:33.

at it. It's in their own hands. You say, put a positive spin. They are

:36:34.:36:40.

three points behind Fenerbahce. Nothing like their previous

:36:41.:36:45.

experiences ins Europe, Celtic beating Ajax at home or Fenerbahce

:36:46.:36:51.

away or at home? They are vulnerable at the back. Domestically they are

:36:52.:36:55.

doing fine. They are top of the league. They are winning games. They

:36:56.:37:00.

have conceded the lowest amount of goals in the Premiership. Doing fine

:37:01.:37:03.

domestically. In Europe they are exposed at the back. Concede all the

:37:04.:37:07.

time. Conceded two goals in all European games. You are giving

:37:08.:37:13.

yourself a two goal deficit to overcome. Celtic didn't build a

:37:14.:37:17.

period of possession on Tuesday night, passages of play, get a

:37:18.:37:23.

foothold on the game before the defence is exposed and conceded

:37:24.:37:27.

goals. If they don't tighten up they won't pick up points in the last two

:37:28.:37:32.

games. I feel sorry for Ronny Deila to some extent, the players they

:37:33.:37:36.

signed defensively were inspearsed. These guys have stepped up a level,

:37:37.:37:40.

they are not ready for it yet. He has to manage that. He has to find a

:37:41.:37:43.

way to make Celtic defensively stronger. He has not done that in

:37:44.:37:50.

Europe yet. We were talking about it in the office, two Ronny's, domestic

:37:51.:37:57.

football dominant, European football struggling. On day one they beat by

:37:58.:38:04.

Ross County. They play them tomorrow. Everyone thought Celtic

:38:05.:38:11.

would run away with it. Ross County played well. We got a glimpse of

:38:12.:38:14.

what they were going to do this season, they carried it on. Celtic

:38:15.:38:18.

will look at more of this tomorrow. They will look for Griffiths and

:38:19.:38:23.

their top players to score. Tough place to go with the way Ross County

:38:24.:38:27.

are playing. What reaction it do you expect on the back of the Europa

:38:28.:38:31.

League defeat The managers didn't mince his words. He was blunt in his

:38:32.:38:36.

assessment. The team lacking leadership and characters. He he was

:38:37.:38:41.

critical of boyality ya, he made the caveat that he is inexperienced. I

:38:42.:38:45.

think Celtic have responded to setbacks in Europe this season. That

:38:46.:38:49.

is why they are top of the League, their doe Membersic form is good,

:38:50.:38:55.

beat Hearts and Aberdeen. They are r have faced every challenge

:38:56.:38:58.

domestically. The manager was critical. If he doesn't get a

:38:59.:39:02.

response from the players that will tell a lot about the dynamic of the

:39:03.:39:07.

dressing room. I think they will win the league comfortably. You couldn't

:39:08.:39:16.

become more critical on Dundee United. What do you think of his

:39:17.:39:20.

assessment of today's performance be losing 2-0. I'm worried for Dundee

:39:21.:39:24.

United. We were watching the pictures of the game today. They

:39:25.:39:28.

weren't any better. The trouble is, when a new manager comes in, you

:39:29.:39:32.

often get a honeymoon period where the players kick on and they get a

:39:33.:39:37.

few wins everything seems Rosie, then perhaps it dips. It's not

:39:38.:39:41.

happening for Dundee United. They beat Ross County. They lost to Hibs.

:39:42.:39:47.

They lost to Hibs. Some of the goals here against Hibs highlights Dundee

:39:48.:39:51.

United's problems. Is this rubbish again? What way can you describe it.

:39:52.:39:58.

They will think that's the best way of dealing with the situation. I

:39:59.:40:03.

mean, these are young boys who have never really had criticism like

:40:04.:40:05.

that. John lead with his elbow, which is

:40:06.:40:16.

unfortunate. But the young boys have not really had criticism, it was not

:40:17.:40:18.

Jackie's wave. Now a totally not really had criticism, it was not

:40:19.:40:22.

different manager has come in and had a real pop at them. It's not

:40:23.:40:26.

really worked in midweek, and it didn't work today. Richard, you were

:40:27.:40:30.

tipping at the start of the season Hamilton to go down. Can you see

:40:31.:40:37.

United staying in the bottom for the rest of the season? I can. The only

:40:38.:40:43.

way that he manages to rest of the season? I can. The only

:40:44.:40:46.

United out of this is organising the team so that they are conceding

:40:47.:40:51.

fewer goals. That will take time and effort on the training ground, which

:40:52.:40:54.

he is doing at the moment. We have already seen them and trying to sign

:40:55.:40:59.

a goalkeeper, it will depend on his work permit, but he is an

:41:00.:41:01.

experienced, international goalkeeper and that will help.

:41:02.:41:05.

January will be key for Dundee United. Kilmarnock, Motherwell, they

:41:06.:41:12.

are dropping points down the bottom of the table. I think Dundee United

:41:13.:41:16.

will be there, I think there will be two or three teams around them. Of

:41:17.:41:21.

those teams, the one with the best chance of doing something in January

:41:22.:41:22.

is Dundee United, if they have chance of doing something in January

:41:23.:41:31.

struggle all season. May be too late to say that the wheels are back on

:41:32.:41:37.

the bandwagon for Aberdeen, but certainly for Hearts? Definitely,

:41:38.:41:42.

the bandwagon for Aberdeen, but played very well again. Good goals.

:41:43.:41:47.

They are having a terrific season. Nielsen will be looking to keep that

:41:48.:41:52.

going, keep the same momentum. Once you lose a few games, you go back a

:41:53.:41:56.

lot. If they can keep winning and keep in touch with Celtic, I am sure

:41:57.:42:01.

there will be delighted. Are you looking at Hearts and Aberdeen for

:42:02.:42:03.

second, or can use CED them going looking at Hearts and Aberdeen for

:42:04.:42:07.

and challenging Celtic, St Johnstone coming into the mix? Celtic, now

:42:08.:42:14.

they are top of the table, I can't see anybody catching on. I think it

:42:15.:42:16.

will be close between see anybody catching on. I think it

:42:17.:42:19.

Hearts. I can't see St Johnstone coming up.

:42:20.:42:26.

So before I sound the final whistle, I'll remind you of some results.

:42:27.:43:04.

Now, you'll see the best bits of the weekend's action

:43:05.:43:09.

in the Highlights Show tomorrow at 10.30pm on BBC One Scotland,

:43:10.:43:11.

No Results Show next week because of the Euro 2016 play-offs.

:43:12.:43:19.

No game for Scotland, but that's another story.

:43:20.:43:21.

Messrs Cosgrove and Cowan are waiting to take your calls in Off

:43:22.:43:26.

Go on, give them a rocket on the radio.

:43:27.:43:34.

Thanks to our guests, Mark and Richard,

:43:35.:43:38.

Introduced by David Currie.
