Dave Mackay, it is in the back of the net!

:00:39.:00:46.

To draw it is great skill! One before strike!

:00:47.:00:53.

And no one is stopping that one! That is brilliant!

:00:53.:00:57.

After a two week international break, the SPL is back in business.

:00:57.:01:04.

We will see all the weekend action in the next 45 minutes and hear

:01:04.:01:07.

from the Motherwell captain. Rangers can do without the never-

:01:07.:01:12.

ending off-field murmurings, but one set of figures which does star

:01:12.:01:19.

Cup is the SPL stands. Do yesterday at Paradise they plan to make their

:01:19.:01:28.

winning streak five. Shaun Dowling joined Scott Daly.

:01:28.:01:31.

The Swanson came in for his first The Swanson came in for his first

:01:31.:01:40.

start of the season was Robertson. Steven Whittaker returned, so did

:01:40.:01:46.

Australian Matt McKay on the bench. Highlights from Alastair Lamont.

:01:46.:01:56.
:01:56.:02:04.

Do not the best of clearances from flood. It came off Steven Whittaker

:02:04.:02:11.

Khokhlov Allan McGregor had not an earthly chance. -- it came off

:02:11.:02:21.
:02:21.:02:36.

that one over. It has been a bright Swanson. -- is going to boot

:02:36.:02:40.

Swanson. He says that was a dive. Swans are looking for the penalty

:02:40.:02:50.
:02:50.:02:52.

kick. -- swans and looking. That is a tricky one to call. United still

:02:52.:02:57.

pressing for the opening goal. Coming also close. That is inches

:02:57.:03:07.
:03:07.:03:08.

away. There is Stuart Broad fruit - - Stuart Broad fruit accelerating

:03:08.:03:18.
:03:18.:03:38.

Russell thinking? He did clip the advantage trying to take it back.

:03:38.:03:43.

There is Steven Naismith. That was not too far away, a lovely ball

:03:43.:03:53.
:03:53.:04:27.

much more room to work in that now they are only against ten men. Back

:04:27.:04:32.

post and readers are in front, and it is Kyle Lafferty. -- Rangers are

:04:32.:04:39.

in front. He peeled off his man, stayed onside and rose to it, it is

:04:39.:04:49.
:04:49.:05:00.

a brilliant header and Rangers are Robertson tan. -- Roberts in Cannes.

:05:00.:05:10.
:05:10.:05:17.

Another famous squiggly shot from start. Davies could not come any

:05:17.:05:22.

closer than this. Brilliant exchange with Steven Naismith and

:05:22.:05:32.
:05:32.:06:02.

of the keeper. Steven Naismith beat room for himself and had Allan

:06:02.:06:12.
:06:12.:06:43.

Rankin. Although United fans behind come. Davies, again, plenty behind

:06:43.:06:46.

come. Davies, again, plenty behind that.

:06:46.:06:51.

At that time, I thought the referee was right to give Danny Swanson

:06:51.:06:55.

again Okada for what he saw as a dive, but an think every time I

:06:55.:06:59.

have watched it since I am hearing further from that.

:06:59.:07:04.

It is such a tough decision, but I think, as a defender, if you did

:07:04.:07:10.

your leg out, you're making the referee made a decision. We have

:07:10.:07:16.

seen so many times, is it a penalty or not? I think that is a penalty

:07:16.:07:23.

to it. You can see it clearly, if you put your leg out, Danny Swanson

:07:23.:07:30.

does not have to avoid it, he has definitely caught him. Look at the

:07:30.:07:33.

highlight for Calum Murray, he is stretching to look round, and

:07:33.:07:36.

possibly for a split second it was out of sight for him. A yes, I

:07:36.:07:39.

think that is what makes it difficult.

:07:39.:07:45.

People told about technology, but I think the game must blow. Maybe

:07:45.:07:48.

Danny Swanson has done things in the past, he has gone down easily

:07:48.:07:52.

and that has given him a little bit of a repent it -- a little bit of a

:07:52.:07:57.

reputation and the referee has that in his head, but I think he finds

:07:57.:08:00.

himself a little unfortunate. What was not a difficult call was

:08:00.:08:06.

the red card for Johnny Russell. Yes, it is a strange one. Peter

:08:06.:08:10.

will be furious. Dundee United were well in the game, they had a good

:08:10.:08:17.

start and bullocking the team most likely to score. -- they were

:08:17.:08:22.

looking the team most likely to score. It is a straight red card

:08:22.:08:26.

and I think you can tell by Johnny Russell's reaction, he does not

:08:26.:08:32.

complain, he just walks off the park. Why did he get involved? May

:08:32.:08:36.

be a little bit of immaturity as a young player and that changed the

:08:36.:08:39.

game for me. They did well before and after the

:08:39.:08:42.

red card, Dundee United, and Rangers were hanging on at the end,

:08:42.:08:45.

and you wonder what might have happened.

:08:45.:08:52.

It is a credit to the Dundee United players but that they kept going.

:08:52.:08:56.

If they had 11 players, they could have done something in the game.

:08:56.:09:00.

Peter will be hugely disappointed, but will be delighted with the way

:09:00.:09:03.

they played. They kept going forward, Gary Kenneth had a couple

:09:03.:09:07.

of headers, and they will be thinking, if we had 11 players, we

:09:07.:09:13.

could have had a result. Massive credit to Rangers, since

:09:13.:09:16.

dropping points on the opening day they have put together a five

:09:16.:09:22.

straight wins in the SPL, four of them on the road, one at your place,

:09:22.:09:25.

unfortunately for you. It is true, when they bet to Fir

:09:25.:09:30.

Park, they had to go to Inverness and some Johnson, places that are

:09:30.:09:36.

tough to go and get results. -- and St Johnstone. Of course they are

:09:36.:09:42.

disappointed with the European exploits, but the lead is what it

:09:42.:09:46.

is a bed for Rangers, winning the week and getting consistency.

:09:46.:09:53.

A top quality goal to win it yesterday, Greg Wylde's delivery

:09:53.:09:58.

and Kyle Lafferty's header for the only goal of the game at Tannadice.

:09:58.:10:05.

Motherwell had a great start to the season, but they lost to Rangers at

:10:05.:10:08.

Fir Park and yesterday went to Celtic Park.

:10:08.:10:14.

A Celtic debut for Badr El Kaddouri A Celtic debut for Badr El Kaddouri

who is on loan. Joe Ledley took over from the injured skipper,

:10:17.:10:25.

Scott pound. Mother Bill had Sean Hutchinson back alongside Stephen

:10:25.:10:35.
:10:35.:10:40.

in central defence after injury, on loan from Dynamo Kiev for six

:10:40.:10:50.
:10:50.:10:54.

not scored in their last two here, that is now well and truly over.

:10:54.:11:04.
:11:04.:11:05.

Nine minutes in against Motherwell, Celtic opened the scoring.

:11:05.:11:10.

It is James Forrest's the second of the season.

:11:10.:11:20.
:11:20.:11:32.

Mother well, just one in 20 visits. lively so far and is in the thick

:11:32.:11:39.

of it again. It is a good ball in, just a little too high. Badr El

:11:39.:11:45.

Kaddouri. Motherwell taking no chances, but

:11:45.:11:55.
:11:55.:12:08.

James Forrest has been a live wire Using his initiative, Gary Hooper,

:12:08.:12:16.

to capitalise on Darren Randolph being in Phnom and's land. -- being

:12:16.:12:26.
:12:26.:12:29.

in Phnom and's land. -- no-man's- James Forrest. Almost came back to

:12:29.:12:39.
:12:39.:12:55.

James Forrest this time. Joe Ledley can finish it, and does. Fantastic

:12:55.:13:03.

football again from Celtic. One touch, quick, and Joe Ledley polish

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

is that off. His second of the well rear guard again. Darren

:13:20.:13:30.
:13:30.:13:58.

Randolph is reported to the spot. - He's scored one from that distance

:13:58.:14:02.

in the Scottish Cup finals, maybe further out that day. It went into

:14:02.:14:08.

the other corner. This, with the outside of the boot. A terrific

:14:08.:14:18.
:14:18.:14:18.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:14:18.:15:01.

left. James Forrest made his Celtic debut

:15:01.:15:05.

a year-and-a-half ago. He played Motherwell and scored that day. He

:15:05.:15:10.

has two and Celtic have four. I think it is safe to say they are

:15:10.:15:20.
:15:20.:15:34.

is not interested. -- a penalty. It has been all Celtic today.

:15:34.:15:42.

4-0 sounds like a runaround. Did it I felt for long spells we were in

:15:43.:15:48.

the game. We had plenty of ball retention. But when you go to these

:15:48.:15:54.

places, you have to be clinical. When you get the opportunity to get

:15:54.:16:00.

the ball and a box, you have to take a shock. They are kroner --

:16:00.:16:03.

clinical in what they do and their passing his clinical and we could

:16:03.:16:13.
:16:13.:16:15.

not cope. Morrison had a great impact on the game. He did. The

:16:15.:16:20.

Celtic players tried to give him as much ball as they could. We were

:16:20.:16:24.

attacking and that left us vulnerable at times. Maybe that was

:16:24.:16:31.

down to us chasing the game, a bit naive. I think our philosophy is to

:16:31.:16:35.

go and try and score goals and get back in the game, but if you leave

:16:35.:16:40.

yourself open, you will be picked off. He seems to have bulked up. He

:16:40.:16:46.

has power and lots of pace. He has. We have seen from the clips that

:16:46.:16:49.

something is different in the game. You don't see certain things and

:16:49.:16:54.

you don't know who is doing what. He is coming inside and outside.

:16:54.:16:59.

The fact that Joe Ledley was playing as well. James has to

:16:59.:17:05.

create. He has to go and make things happen. From the clips, it

:17:05.:17:09.

looks like he had a whirlwind. From the game, you sometimes don't see

:17:09.:17:15.

it, but you can from the clips. Motherwell don't need another bad

:17:15.:17:18.

injury with Steven Saunders out already unsure Hutchins and picked

:17:18.:17:28.
:17:28.:17:28.

up a problem with his left ankle. - - and Sean Hutchinson. He was X-

:17:28.:17:32.

rayed last night and there was no break or fracture. But with

:17:32.:17:36.

ligaments it could be anything from six to eight weeks. Our physio will

:17:36.:17:40.

have a proper look. The swelling will go down and judgment will be

:17:40.:17:48.

made. He has been a great player for us. Stephen Shaw -- Stephen

:17:48.:17:53.

Saunders is injured as well, though. You have lost to the Old Firm in

:17:53.:17:58.

the past few weeks. Can you squeeze that out and pick it is still a

:17:58.:18:05.

great start to the season? We have to. We have been clinical in some

:18:05.:18:10.

games. We were not clinical at times. You have to always be

:18:10.:18:14.

clinical. Sometimes we had one or two chances and we have taken our

:18:14.:18:19.

chances. You try to put the Old Firm aside. We have a big game

:18:19.:18:23.

against St Johnstone and they will fancy their chances. We are in

:18:23.:18:28.

reasonable form so that should be a good game. Bad results can do

:18:28.:18:32.

psychological damage and it is good to get them out of your head.

:18:32.:18:37.

depends what you do after the Games. You cannot let them affect you. We

:18:38.:18:41.

have three home games in a week coming up. We will try to put that

:18:41.:18:45.

aside. We have a good week of training. It is just a good start

:18:45.:18:55.

and we have to build on it and get more points. Celtic player -- play

:18:55.:18:59.

Atletico Madrid. They also have another Old Firm match next Sunday.

:18:59.:19:03.

Is that a difficult balancing act for them? It is when you have some

:19:03.:19:08.

injuries. Scott Brown might not play on Thursday. Paddy has not

:19:08.:19:12.

played. So some players that might have played on Thursday and not on

:19:12.:19:21.

a Sunday might have to play both games. There are plenty of options

:19:21.:19:24.

for Neil Lennon. He likes to be in a competition financially but he

:19:24.:19:27.

could probably do with stepping aside because Thursday is a big

:19:27.:19:32.

game for them. Hearts had an emphatic Edinburgh

:19:32.:19:36.

derby win. Let's see how it went yesterday against Caledonian

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

match. The first real chance came for Hearts from the corner. Andy

:19:50.:19:56.

Webster with this attempt on goal. Cleared off the line by Graham

:19:56.:20:06.
:20:06.:20:09.

his brother for the first real interest chance. Andrew got the

:20:09.:20:15.

cross and the ball flashed just over the bar. Lucas got the final

:20:15.:20:21.

touch under pressure. Then in the second half, the memorable moment

:20:21.:20:28.

of this match. This back-pass came at just the wrong moment and

:20:28.:20:35.

MacDonald slit. The ball bounced into the path of Gregory Tade. He

:20:36.:20:40.

slotted it home to give Caledonian Thistle the lead. Gregory Tade

:20:40.:20:50.
:20:50.:20:51.

celebrated with some nifty footwork. But work was decidedly less nifty

:20:51.:20:54.

from our Hearts when Donald, slipping out the worst possible

:20:54.:21:04.

time and in the worst possible place. The Hearts defence then went

:21:04.:21:14.
:21:14.:21:15.

AWOL. Luke is a step doubt with the ball to get Hearts on the counter

:21:15.:21:25.
:21:25.:21:29.

much in the balance. Hearts almost drew level when moments earlier

:21:29.:21:35.

they could have been 2-0 down. It was not long before the Hearts

:21:35.:21:42.

defence was stretched again. David Davies was the new boy that managed

:21:42.:21:52.
:21:52.:21:54.

to prevent this finish. Hearts defence was split again. The Hearts

:21:54.:21:58.

goalkeeper gave his all to make up for his earlier slip and denied

:21:58.:22:05.

Gregory Tade once again. Paulo Sergio has got his players during

:22:05.:22:15.
:22:15.:22:24.

an extra day's training. Sometimes from Hearts. 11 minutes from time

:22:24.:22:28.

Stephen Elliot played the ball out wide to 10 Bolton and he returned

:22:28.:22:36.

the cross to Stephen Elliott. He managed to get the ball home. One

:22:36.:22:39.

all is how it would finish with Hearts escaping from the Highlands

:22:39.:22:48.

Paulo Sergio was keen to absolve his goalkeeper of any blame, but I

:22:48.:22:52.

think everyone else watching this would. Their finger at Jimmy

:22:52.:22:59.

MacDonald. Is this pressure on the goalkeeper to play from the back?

:22:59.:23:02.

Paulo Sergio has come in and tried to change his style of play. He

:23:02.:23:07.

wants them to play from the back. I wonder if Jimmy MacDonald thought

:23:07.:23:15.

that he had to play a pass? These things happen and it is unfortunate.

:23:15.:23:18.

It could not have happened after a worse place. If a goalkeeper makes

:23:19.:23:22.

a mistake, they are the last line of defence and unbearably there

:23:22.:23:26.

will be a goal. He did make a couple of good saves but on the

:23:26.:23:31.

other side of the coin, you might think that Gregory Tade should have

:23:31.:23:34.

scored again. He will be disappointed that he did not get

:23:34.:23:39.

another goal. I think it is a test of character for Jimmy MacDonald.

:23:39.:23:43.

When you make a mistake, people see how you respond. He was very good.

:23:43.:23:49.

He kept them in the game. Difficult for Inverness to carry on scoring

:23:49.:23:53.

goals at the rate they were doing in the first division. You cannot

:23:53.:24:00.

find another Rooney every year. cannot, but Caledonian Thistle were

:24:00.:24:05.

creating chances. Early in the season I think they were not

:24:05.:24:09.

creating them, but as they have gone on, they got their first win

:24:09.:24:19.
:24:19.:24:20.

against Kilmarnock, they bounced back. Will Hearts budget, is their

:24:20.:24:30.
:24:30.:24:32.

spending power decisive? If they get two or three injuries they

:24:32.:24:38.

actually have strength and depth. Everybody else has 14 or 15 players.

:24:38.:24:44.

But somebody like cards can keep up the good form and keep winning

:24:44.:24:54.
:24:54.:24:58.

games. Obama like Hearts. Like Still to come, Jim McIntyre gets on

:24:58.:25:06.

the wrong side of the referee. And Graham Stark is almost on the

:25:06.:25:15.

Top entertainment at Rugby Park yesterday, with Kilmarnock and

:25:15.:25:19.

their all the positive philosophy. Dunfermline have adapted quickly to

:25:19.:25:29.
:25:29.:25:29.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:25:29.:26:13.

Jason Thomson scored his first goal in senior football. Jason Thomson,

:26:13.:26:23.
:26:23.:26:48.

on loan from Hearts, scores the Nobody picked up that run. J

:26:48.:26:58.
:26:58.:27:21.

McIntyre is going to watch the rest He went in for the tackle too early.

:27:21.:27:26.

Paul Heffernan, simple. Gallagher has been a hard man to beat from

:27:26.:27:31.

the spot this season. A couple of penalties from the spot to his name,

:27:31.:27:41.
:27:41.:27:57.

but poor have and then draws was a great pass. An effective

:27:57.:28:07.
:28:07.:28:07.

finish from Paul Heffernan. He sent Paul Gallagher the wrong way. They

:28:07.:28:17.
:28:17.:28:40.

Dunfermline! This cross was absolutely perfect to Ryan Thompson.

:28:40.:28:50.
:28:50.:29:03.

This is his first goal for central defender. All six feet four

:29:03.:29:06.

of her and took this brilliantly inside the box and curled it into

:29:06.:29:16.
:29:16.:29:16.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:29:16.:30:27.

all credit to the goalkeeper, Paul We should at Kilmarnock to the

:30:27.:30:31.

battle for third place in the SPL. They are up to 4th after that win

:30:31.:30:37.

yesterday. They are good looking team. Let's start with James Dayton.

:30:37.:30:42.

He missed so much of last season so people do not know much about him.

:30:42.:30:46.

I have seen him playing against Hibernian. When he found his stride,

:30:46.:30:52.

he was excellent. He loves one-on- one situations. His first thought

:30:52.:30:56.

as an attacker is to take somebody on. Some players want to link up,

:30:56.:31:03.

but he wants to take people on. As a defender, that is horrible.

:31:03.:31:08.

Shiels likes a nutmeg. Yes, and to be honest, his dad's style of play

:31:08.:31:17.

suits him. He links up the play. He has an eye for a pass. He is

:31:17.:31:22.

definitely thriving in that team. Every team wants a prolific

:31:22.:31:25.

goalscorer and they might have found one with Paul Heffernan.

:31:26.:31:30.

has got four goals in three starts. His work-rate impressed me and his

:31:30.:31:37.

movement. He was winning headers, chasing it down. I think your

:31:37.:31:41.

strikers have to be good so you can succeed. They have to take part in

:31:41.:31:45.

the game, link up the play and work hard and he does do that.

:31:45.:31:48.

Dunfermline should not be distraught because they have eight

:31:48.:31:53.

points on the board already and on another day they might have got one

:31:53.:31:57.

point from that. It is disappointing if you scored twice

:31:57.:32:07.
:32:07.:32:09.

St Mirren's style of play this season has won them fans around the

:32:09.:32:13.

country. They were at home to St Johnstone this weekend. Jonatan can

:32:13.:32:23.
:32:23.:32:28.

the last 13 meetings going into this match.

:32:28.:32:33.

St Mirren set about getting that first we victory over St Johnstone

:32:33.:32:42.

sensed August 2005. Mrs a new, improved St Mirren, spirited

:32:42.:32:47.

attacking play now the order of the day. Nigel Hasselbaink is a major

:32:47.:32:52.

factor in that changed. The 20- year-old Dutchman who began his

:32:52.:32:57.

footballing life with PSV Eindhoven going close after a one-two with

:32:57.:33:05.

Paul McGann. As with -- with St Johnstone having

:33:05.:33:09.

recently claimed the scalp of Celtic, they are not quite as sharp

:33:09.:33:14.

as before, Cillian Sheridan's drive from the edge of the area being

:33:14.:33:18.

saved by Craig Samson, and St Johnstone now much more of a goal

:33:18.:33:25.

threat. Five of the last seven goals have

:33:25.:33:32.

come from the new striker, Francisco Sandaza. But the Spaniard

finished well wide. Some very optimistic shouts for handball, the

:33:37.:33:41.

22-year-old St Mirren defender making his first start for the club.

:33:41.:33:44.

There then followed a great interception and terrific run from

:33:44.:33:49.

David Van Zanten. The St Mirren defender made it to the edge of the

:33:49.:33:58.

box before picking out Gary Teale... Are the shot from the former

:33:58.:34:04.

Scotland international blocked. Then the really big chance for St

:34:04.:34:08.

Mirren to get that goal. Nigel Hasselbaink, again making the

:34:08.:34:17.

impact on the box. Paul McGann and with the big chance...

:34:17.:34:24.

Mike German denied by a goal line clearance from Fraser right. -- me

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

no contact from the St Johnstone goalkeeper. To his credit, the St

:34:35.:34:38.

Mirren striker put his hand up but it was not enough to save him from

:34:38.:34:47.

a big game for diving from referee Stephen McLean. St Johnstone's

:34:47.:34:49.

running street continues, 0-0 the running street continues, 0-0 the

:34:49.:34:52.

score. St Mirren get lots of plaudits for

:34:52.:34:56.

the way they play, I have done it myself the season. Could it be a

:34:56.:35:01.

recurring problem that there great lead-up play does not often enough

:35:01.:35:05.

lead to a goal? I think it is about being clinical.

:35:05.:35:09.

Sometimes teams have loads of possession and play nice football

:35:09.:35:13.

and do not create chances. We see over their games, first against

:35:13.:35:17.

Aberdeen and then ourselves, there are chances being created, but they

:35:17.:35:21.

need a predator in the box who will keep putting the ball in the net.

:35:21.:35:25.

Was that great defending? If I would claim that.

:35:25.:35:31.

Others would say differently. Nigel Hasselbaink had some great chances,

:35:31.:35:35.

Paul McGowan here against Celtic getting in behind.

:35:35.:35:40.

As much as the play is good, Danny will be a little frustrated they

:35:40.:35:46.

have not got as many goals as they probably deserved.

:35:46.:35:50.

Steven Thompson, Gary Teale, Paul McGann and and Nigel Hasselbaink,

:35:50.:35:54.

that is a great four, isn't it? They all want to play similarly.

:35:54.:35:58.

They all want to create something, but if they had someone who

:35:58.:36:02.

constantly put the ball in the back of the net it may help them. We

:36:02.:36:05.

played them recently and they are a good side, they move the ball well,

:36:05.:36:10.

and it is hard to open up against them because they can pick you off.

:36:10.:36:15.

Nigel Hassell mike must be a real start -- must be a real pain to

:36:15.:36:21.

play against. -- Nigel Hasselbaink. Could he one of the players of the

:36:21.:36:23.

season? He is strong on the ball, has a low

:36:23.:36:28.

centre of gravity. I great link-up play and a good signing for Danny

:36:28.:36:32.

Lennon. Heads and Aberdeen got together at

:36:32.:36:35.

Easter Road today and were both desperate to get rid of the SPL

:36:35.:36:37.

desperate to get rid of the SPL basement.

:36:37.:36:40.

basement. Both clubs have big expectations

:36:40.:36:45.

and both are under-achieving. Heads have future problems just now, huge

:36:45.:36:53.

pressure. -- Hibernian have the drug problems.

:36:53.:36:57.

Hibernian were uninjured their injured midfielder, Matt Thornhill.

:36:57.:37:04.

Calum Best was left out. He Aberdeen counter boat Ryan Jack,

:37:04.:37:14.
:37:14.:37:14.

who suffered a head injury away with the Scotland Under 21 squad.

:37:14.:37:24.

the season for either of these teams.

:37:24.:37:28.

That's is given away by Chris Clarke on his starting debut for

:37:28.:37:38.
:37:38.:37:47.

heads at Inverness, Aberdeen at home to Inverness. -- Hibernian at

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

shining light for Hibernian so far this campaign. He has scored all

:38:00.:38:10.
:38:10.:38:10.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 43 seconds

:38:10.:39:21.

and go for goal rather than trying Paul Hoyland. -- O'Hanlon.

:39:21.:39:31.
:39:31.:39:47.

Gonzalez to safety. That is some hitter from Jimmy

:39:47.:39:57.
:39:57.:40:14.

Scott. Only one thing on his mind Bedford. He is just on as a sub. --

:40:14.:40:24.
:40:24.:40:37.

it is eaten away, Calum Best's this game, this is Hibernian's Best,

:40:37.:40:47.
:40:47.:41:27.

Again that has summed up the pair's I cannot imagine why he has decided

:41:27.:41:30.

to go for the head. It is unorthodox, it seemed to work in

:41:30.:41:40.
:41:40.:41:46.

Northern Irishman, it is saved, Foster is offside. Right at the end,

:41:46.:41:53.

Aberdeen almost snatching it. My Guinness twisting and turning

:41:53.:41:59.

My Guinness twisting and turning away from Hanlon. -- McGuinness.

:41:59.:42:02.

He is that what you get when you have two teams frightened of losing

:42:02.:42:05.

and not sure how to win? Are at it probably is, there is a

:42:05.:42:08.

little bit of a fear factor comes into play.

:42:08.:42:12.

Rather than playing a shorter pass you play the longer one because it

:42:12.:42:16.

is safer. Invariably, when you play longer passes, you give the ball

:42:16.:42:22.

away. Listening to the manager ofs' comments after the match, they were

:42:22.:42:26.

disappointed they have not scored, but I think Colin Calderwood said

:42:26.:42:31.

some of the play was rubbish. It is honest, but when you are not

:42:31.:42:35.

scoring goals, it is important not to concede them. That is the

:42:35.:42:40.

message to the players - don't concede, don't get beat.

:42:40.:42:46.

Six or seven a his appeal against Aberdeen have not scored, and in

:42:46.:42:50.

more than one of them Dario corner has scored for Hibernian, their

:42:50.:43:00.
:43:00.:43:04.

problems are easy to see. -- Dario Sometimes a turf harder you try the

:43:04.:43:10.

further Abbey it seems. -- sometimes the harder you try.

:43:10.:43:17.

Sometimes you just need a goal, a win, any way at all.

:43:17.:43:22.

I did love that diving header which was almost underground.

:43:22.:43:25.

The you had a look at both squads and the like what you see, don't

:43:25.:43:29.

you? That is what is probably

:43:29.:43:34.

frustrating from the managers' point of view. Robert Milton I

:43:34.:43:44.
:43:44.:43:45.

think is a really good player. We mentioned Garry O'Connor, he scores

:43:45.:43:52.

goals, there are plenty of talented players, but sometimes you need

:43:52.:43:56.

something to call in your favour. Confidence comes and does appears

:43:56.:44:00.

as quick as it arrives. It is about trying to get a run of performances

:44:00.:44:04.

and goals. Talking about finding a little

:44:04.:44:08.

spark, Aberdeen are keen to sign the New Zealand striker, Rory

:44:08.:44:13.

Fallon, not surprisingly. Yes, I think preyed is trying to

:44:13.:44:17.

get someone to help Scott Vernon. He has lost Chris Maguire he did

:44:18.:44:23.

not bring in goals, but he had creativity. He is always looking

:44:23.:44:29.

and is trying to get someone in. But strict on the Clyde still bank
