In around the SPL in 40 minutes, that's us as we round up the

:00:24.:00:30.

weekend of football for you. Celtic have put themselves back in the

:00:30.:00:34.

title race over the last month or so. There were at home to Hearts

:00:34.:00:39.

this weekend, looking to extend their SPL winning sequence to six

:00:39.:00:49.
:00:49.:01:01.

COMMENTATOR: Terrific football from Celtic. It is a wonderful goal.

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

Gary Hooper has found the bottom coming into the team. Hearts had

:01:23.:01:33.
:01:33.:01:36.

Robinson coming in, and two others. Celtic trying to make inroads. This

:01:36.:01:43.

is Gary Hooper! Well, that is the best chance of the game so far. It

:01:43.:01:53.
:01:53.:02:30.

rising. He has looked fairly be in trouble. Georgios Samaras.

:02:30.:02:34.

The Celtic fans are frustrated with the way their team has been going

:02:34.:02:44.
:02:44.:02:52.

in the first half. It was similar of Marian Kello. That was a good

:02:52.:03:02.
:03:02.:03:06.

league win here since 2007. They have one it in the League Cup since

:03:06.:03:16.
:03:16.:03:19.

then. -- they have won in the League Cup. Mulgrew did well here.

:03:19.:03:29.
:03:29.:03:47.

still awaiting his first start since coming back from injury.

:03:47.:03:57.
:03:57.:03:59.

Scott! Woodwork! As close as they have come! He has not been a happy

:03:59.:04:03.

chappie, Neil Lennon, so far, on the touchline. And another free

:04:03.:04:13.
:04:13.:04:21.

kick which is easily dealt with by Wanyama! From a standing start,

:04:21.:04:26.

Victor Wanyama scores his first Celtic goal, and what a time to do

:04:26.:04:34.

it, 19 minutes from time. This did not look like it was coming. He's

:04:34.:04:42.

playing at centre half just now, Wanyama! They're more relaxed

:04:42.:04:49.

around these parts now. They might get a second. Georgios Samaras and

:04:49.:04:58.

Anthony Stokes were involved in this, from the free kick. Hearts

:04:58.:05:08.
:05:08.:05:18.

will be despondent to be behind, Fraser Forster. The dying embers of

:05:18.:05:28.
:05:28.:05:30.

the game. Penalty! Handball against Victor Wanyama! Two minutes to go,

:05:30.:05:34.

and what a moment this could be, not just today, but in the course

:05:34.:05:40.

of the campaign. There's the back- heel from Elliott, Fraser Forster

:05:40.:05:46.

thought he had got rid of it, Wanyama adjudged to have handled it.

:05:46.:05:50.

I think they call this gamesmanship. Georgios Samaras claiming the ball

:05:50.:05:59.

is not on the spot. Saved by Fraser Forster! Celebrated as if it was a

:05:59.:06:04.

goal at the other end. They call this the right height for the

:06:04.:06:12.

goalkeeper, but the save still had to be made. We are deep into injury

:06:12.:06:18.

time. The referee blows for full- time. Celtic have won this. The

:06:18.:06:28.
:06:28.:06:31.

heroes, Fraser Forster and Wanyama. These two had an issue earlier in

:06:31.:06:36.

These two had an issue earlier in the second half. Scott Brown,

:06:36.:06:40.

getting back to his old self, by the looks of it. The gap was 15

:06:40.:06:44.

points, it is now back to four. They're desperate they do not drift

:06:45.:06:48.

further away from Rangers. You can see how much it wins to them at the

:06:48.:06:53.

moment, six wins on the trot. games like that will keep them in

:06:53.:06:56.

the title race. They might not have performed how they would have

:06:56.:06:59.

wanted, they might not have replicated their form over previous

:06:59.:07:03.

week's, but coming to this time of the year, it is about winning games.

:07:03.:07:08.

They know that on 28th December, they have got Rangers at home, they

:07:08.:07:13.

will fancy their chances at Parkhead. One man who has been a

:07:13.:07:20.

top former for them has been Victor Wanyama. Kenyan International.

:07:20.:07:25.

I think he's more of a defensive player. But it is all hands to the

:07:25.:07:30.

pump when you're looking for a goal. Neil Lennon said, he does not even

:07:30.:07:35.

do that in training. It is totally out of the blue. That can be the

:07:35.:07:38.

difference between staying in the title race or not. People step-up

:07:38.:07:44.

to the mark, people who do not normally do that sort of thing.

:07:44.:07:51.

this a handball? I can see why it was given. When Wanyama goes up for

:07:51.:07:54.

the ball, the penalty could have been given for the foul. He could

:07:54.:07:57.

have catches him across the face. As the referee given it for

:07:57.:08:04.

handball, or for that? I'm not too sure. But when you put your hand up,

:08:04.:08:07.

you're giving the referee the you're giving the referee the

:08:07.:08:11.

opportunity to give a penalty.. you OK with gamesmanship like this,

:08:11.:08:16.

Georgios Samaras, and then Fraser Forster, querying where the ball

:08:16.:08:22.

was placed. The FIFA rules are pretty vague, saying the ball

:08:22.:08:27.

should be properly placed, no more than that. Yes, it is gamesmanship,

:08:28.:08:32.

it is trying to put the player off. But when you're wanting to win

:08:32.:08:38.

titles, you need your big players to step up. And Fraser Forster has

:08:38.:08:44.

made a big save for his club. Interesting to look at the Hearts

:08:44.:08:49.

team selection yesterday, John Sutton disappeared without trace,

:08:49.:08:53.

no Andy Webster, is the Hearts team at the moment being picked for

:08:53.:08:57.

financial reasons? You will probably have to ask the answer,

:08:57.:09:00.

but you will not get an answer, because he does not speak to the

:09:00.:09:04.

press. There have been question marks in the past about who's

:09:05.:09:08.

making the decisions. But when you're making so many changes, it

:09:08.:09:14.

is going to upset the rhythm of the team. Paulo Sergio is trying to get

:09:14.:09:19.

a winning formula. It is no coincidence that the pay issue and

:09:19.:09:23.

the bad results, to me, they go hand in hand. Sometimes you just

:09:23.:09:27.

need a couple of results together, back-to-back, to pursue one of it.

:09:27.:09:33.

There is no doubt they have got some top-quality players. Udinese

:09:33.:09:39.

the won today to go top of the League in Italy. How will that go

:09:39.:09:45.

in midweek? For me, they might as well go and have a go. There is no

:09:45.:09:49.

point going and trying to be defensive. I would expect Neil

:09:49.:09:53.

Lennon to be positive. From a few weeks ago, the position they were

:09:53.:09:58.

in, it has all progressed, there on a winning run. I think he will be

:09:58.:10:03.

looking forward to it. Motherwell were in Perth yesterday trying to

:10:03.:10:07.

protect their position as best of the rest in the SPL. St Johnstone

:10:07.:10:12.

have been edging closer, and they did this at fir Park in September.

:10:12.:10:16.

Aside from being beaten by the Old Firm pair, Motherwell have suffered

:10:16.:10:21.

only one league defeat this season, and this was it, 3-0 at home to St

:10:21.:10:26.

Johnstone. Highlights of the rematch at McDiarmid Park coming up

:10:26.:10:32.

now. This promises to be a fascinating tussle, fourth place

:10:32.:10:42.
:10:42.:10:46.

against third. On the attack, and it was a fairly weak shot in the

:10:46.:10:56.
:10:56.:10:59.

end, easy for goalkeeper Enckelman. On his less favoured left foot.

:10:59.:11:05.

It's a cute ball, pandered decent effort by Murray Davidson. Pushed

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

away by goalkeeper Randolph. The best chance so far for St Johnstone.

:11:17.:11:23.

Nicky Law trying to find room for the cross. He does well. And it is

:11:23.:11:31.

tucked in from close range, a disaster for the defence. It

:11:31.:11:38.

follows good work from Nicky Law. But Enckelman should have gathered

:11:38.:11:48.
:11:48.:11:59.

to that. Omar Daley Puts Motherwell in front. Murray Davids and

:11:59.:12:06.

arriving late, that was so close to the equaliser. Brave from Davison

:12:06.:12:16.
:12:16.:12:20.

to attack this one. He does it so well, though. Inches wide. Omar

:12:20.:12:24.

Daley Was caught late by the full- back there. But play continues.

:12:24.:12:30.

Jamie Murphy rising, and doubles Motherwell's lead. It was a fine

:12:30.:12:35.

header, planted firmly past Enckelman, and mother well in

:12:35.:12:40.

command. Terrific ball in from Heatley. Murphy got in between the

:12:40.:12:45.

two defenders. And the header was perfectly placed, no chance for

:12:45.:12:55.
:12:55.:12:56.

Enckelman. Picked up Omar Daley. He goes down under the challenge of

:12:56.:13:05.

the goalkeeper. It is only a corner kick. Motherwell wanted more. The

:13:05.:13:09.

referee says the goalkeeper got a touch on the ball. He certainly

:13:09.:13:17.

seems to direct the ball away from goal. Difficult to tell. Stuart

:13:17.:13:22.

McCall will be well pleased with his side thus far. Terrific away

:13:23.:13:32.
:13:33.:13:43.

form, four wins on the trot. That Randolph. They have been pretty

:13:43.:13:53.
:13:53.:13:54.

toothless without Yeah! Up front. Omar Daley Looking to test

:13:54.:13:57.

Enckelman once again on his near post. He's full of confidence at

:13:57.:14:07.
:14:07.:14:09.

the moment, Omar Daley. Tom Heatley to deliver the corner. He plays it

:14:09.:14:18.

short. Omar Daley, and a huge deflection. Jamie Murphy takes the

:14:18.:14:28.

credit! It was Omar Daley's shot. Not sure how much Murphy knew about

:14:28.:14:32.

this, it came off his backside, giving Enckelman absolutely no hope

:14:32.:14:41.

of keeping it out. Motherwell have surely made sure of the points. St

:14:41.:14:48.

Johnstone desperately searching for something. That pretty much sums up

:14:48.:14:58.
:14:58.:15:00.

And when that rising star of the media world K Flatley was sitting

:15:00.:15:04.

there, he said they were among the best he had faced this season.

:15:04.:15:10.

Yesterday must have been sweet revenge? For us, it was about

:15:10.:15:17.

picking up points. That game was called off at half-time and we only

:15:17.:15:22.

got a draw the week before. We had a good week's training, if there

:15:22.:15:26.

was such a thing. We went good going in and they were up for the

:15:26.:15:33.

game. I felt we played well first half with a couple of scares but we

:15:33.:15:38.

managed to get ourselves in front. You'll say there should have been a

:15:38.:15:44.

penalty but I will say Peter Enckelman got a touch to the ball.

:15:44.:15:49.

Alan Muir had said he touched the ball. At the time, I felt it was

:15:49.:15:54.

not a penalty kick but he was in a better position to judge. Jamie

:15:54.:16:00.

Murphy has practised this one? didn't think he had a backside!

:16:00.:16:07.

When what is going your way and results are going your way, these

:16:07.:16:11.

things go against you. If you speak to Aberdeen or Inverness, these

:16:11.:16:17.

things do not go your way when you're down on your luck. Do mother

:16:17.:16:20.

will find it easier to perform away from home because that is now five

:16:20.:16:30.

on the bounce on the road? It seems to be. We tend to score first. --

:16:30.:16:36.

Motherwell. We have a lot of guys who are good on the counter-attack

:16:36.:16:40.

and a lot of teams in the Scottish Premier League tend to be set up to

:16:40.:16:47.

play counter-attacks. It has been good for us and people call this

:16:47.:16:57.
:16:57.:17:00.

our lucky strap. -- strip. I cannot remember so many away wins and one

:17:00.:17:05.

season but to have it now. Even now, you are 10 points short of last

:17:05.:17:10.

season's total and you have only played 17 games. How much credit

:17:10.:17:15.

goes to Stuart McCall as some people wondered when he took over,

:17:15.:17:22.

how he would get you to another level? Cake and that Archie had

:17:22.:17:28.

done reasonably well. It was probably intimidating by Stuart

:17:28.:17:34.

McCall to come in and knowing that they had done well. He has always

:17:34.:17:42.

said he felt he could. He has brought in Omar Daley and others so

:17:42.:17:47.

he has added quality to the squad. Even he I do not think would have

:17:47.:17:51.

thought we were in the -- would be in the position we're in. We never

:17:51.:17:58.

thought we would be here with this many kits -- points. We're just

:17:58.:18:01.

enjoying ourselves. Inverness hauled themselves off the

:18:01.:18:04.

bottom of the SPL last weekend. And were hoping to continue that upward

:18:04.:18:07.

momentum yesterday at home to Dundee United. Paul Mitchell was

:18:07.:18:17.
:18:17.:18:32.

clubs at inside and a chance for Jonny Hayes! They take just 75

:18:32.:18:42.
:18:42.:18:43.

seconds to go ahead. A lovely ball across and a left-foot finish. Gave

:18:43.:18:53.

him no chance. A good run, and the Mackie going forward and over the

:18:53.:18:56.

top. He seems to be in trouble and Davies will be yellow-carded for

:18:56.:19:06.

the challenge. Mackie steaming straight into him and Chris Hogg

:19:06.:19:16.
:19:16.:19:22.

knew he was in trouble. He is off, Cox is on. He goes down but it is

:19:22.:19:32.
:19:32.:19:33.

not a penalty. It looked unintentional. A quick start to the

:19:33.:19:43.
:19:43.:19:43.

second half. He said that the Cross, Mackie! Are just like in the first

:19:43.:19:48.

half, Inverness Caledonian Thistle stand in the United with a quick

:19:48.:19:58.
:19:58.:19:58.

start. Dundee United in all sorts of heart

:19:58.:20:03.

at the moment and have never come from behind this season. Armstrong

:20:03.:20:09.

is past three, four. Goes down and they have a ball back through the

:20:09.:20:19.
:20:19.:20:22.

substitute, at Johnny Russell. -- goal. Great run from Armstrong and

:20:22.:20:29.

a lover reaction from Johnny Russell. -- lovely reaction.

:20:29.:20:36.

Plenty of time, slide City since it forward. A good flick on. A chance

:20:36.:20:44.

for Armstrong at! He took it away from his own goalkeeper. Dundee

:20:44.:20:51.

United have come from two behind to level at 2-2. More like a pass back

:20:52.:21:01.
:21:02.:21:02.

than a shot. United and Inverness are locked together at 2-2. Quickly

:21:02.:21:11.

taken, a good ball in. Almost making up with -- for the own goal

:21:11.:21:21.
:21:21.:21:22.

with a goal at the other end. Through on to John Rankin, he says

:21:22.:21:30.

it on to Gary Mackay. Johnny Russell had a chance! What a

:21:30.:21:34.

comeback for Dundee United and the catalyst is Johnny Russell. A

:21:34.:21:43.

lovely ball through, look at the left out here and it finishes well.

:21:43.:21:47.

They trailed by two goals and now lead 3-2 with a double for Johnny

:21:47.:21:55.

Russell. The United fans continue to make

:21:55.:22:00.

noises. He could be in trouble if he goes for the challenge and he

:22:00.:22:06.

has! At tackle from behind and a yellow card. He has already been

:22:06.:22:10.

booked and will be sent off. Disappointment for David Davies and

:22:10.:22:16.

Inverness. He will miss the match at Ibrox. He was pushing and

:22:16.:22:26.
:22:26.:22:27.

pushing and went for the challenge. I think you will know what the

:22:27.:22:32.

wrath of Terry Butcher is like. Possibly a managerial master stroke

:22:32.:22:37.

bringing on a Johnny Russell and an immediate impact. At 2-0 down, you

:22:37.:22:42.

are often forced just to go for it. You think all was lost and may as

:22:42.:22:47.

well just go for it. He has made substitutions before and they

:22:47.:22:57.
:22:57.:23:00.

probably will not have worked but on the day, Johnny Russell did. He

:23:00.:23:04.

rewarded his manager's fate yesterday with two good goals. He

:23:04.:23:11.

has all the attributes to be a top player. I think these two goals

:23:11.:23:20.

will push him on. 3-2 win for Dundee United. As you say, he has

:23:20.:23:27.

shown what he can do before, Johnny Russell. This goal coming up was in

:23:27.:23:32.

again when David Goodwillie was still playing. He may be suffered

:23:32.:23:35.

with all those hopes being expressed for him as David

:23:35.:23:40.

Goodwillie's replacement. It can affect young players because

:23:40.:23:44.

suddenly they may think they're better than they are. I do not know

:23:44.:23:50.

him as a kid but it can sometimes happen. The media speculation goes

:23:50.:23:56.

with it. Perhaps he is not ready for it. It is about scoring goals

:23:56.:24:00.

as a striker and that builds your confidence and gives you a lift.

:24:00.:24:04.

Well done, Johnny Russell and Dundee United. Craig Brown was

:24:04.:24:07.

hoping a little celebration might be in order yesterday after exactly

:24:07.:24:10.

a year in charge at bottom-of-the- league Aberdeen. St Mirren were at

:24:10.:24:20.
:24:20.:24:25.

quickly and they could not have got off to a better start. Scott Vernon

:24:25.:24:29.

slamming the ball into the top corner after just 30 seconds. Quick

:24:29.:24:36.

start to do not get much quicker. Isaac Osbourne Robert Kenny McLean

:24:36.:24:41.

on the edge of the box and Fraser Fyvie provided the perfect ball on

:24:41.:24:48.

which was headed in by a Rory Allen. 2-0 up after just 16 minutes. Then

:24:48.:24:54.

came the contentious issue - was as if a handball from Kenny Maclean?

:24:54.:25:01.

Nothing given and a goal back in 34 minutes. Did the ball strike his

:25:01.:25:10.

shoulder or his arm? Scott Vernon was next going down in the box. As

:25:10.:25:13.

definite nudge from the sin Mirren player but not enough for the

:25:13.:25:20.

referee. There was contact made by Jeroen Tesselaar but was at a

:25:20.:25:30.
:25:30.:25:31.

penalty or a died or not enough are either? -- dive. There then

:25:31.:25:34.

followed a free-kick which Craig Brown felt was soft but he did seem

:25:34.:25:43.

to shove him to the ground. From all of 35 yards, a thunderous free-

:25:43.:25:49.

kick to make it 2-2. Perhaps a slight touch from the keeper's

:25:49.:25:55.

elbow held the ball over the line but a tremendous strike nonetheless.

:25:55.:26:02.

Aberdeen tried to hit back. A messy incident innocent man in penalty

:26:02.:26:12.
:26:12.:26:17.

area. The shot was blocked. Fraser Fyvie then floated in what would

:26:17.:26:22.

have been a spectacular goal. I get saved from Craig Samson to put it

:26:22.:26:32.
:26:32.:26:35.

round the post, hitting his head against the terrain and the process.

:26:35.:26:40.

A marginal throw-in decision then went against Aberdeen weeding

:26:40.:26:46.

Fraser Fyvie to say something. He was given a straight red card, a

:26:46.:26:51.

disappointing end to another -- disappointing end to another --

:26:51.:26:58.

The first time I saw Kerry McLean's Gall, I thought, there are enough.

:26:58.:27:08.
:27:08.:27:08.

Then I thought handball, now not so sure. I think you can tell by the

:27:08.:27:14.

way his head dropped back, it hits him in the face. It has not been

:27:14.:27:19.

spoken of since the game. None of the players complained. Good play

:27:19.:27:22.

by Kevin MacLean in the first place to get beyond the striker and get

:27:22.:27:32.
:27:32.:27:33.

the ball. His arm is up. He is giving the referee the option to

:27:33.:27:43.
:27:43.:27:45.

blow for a free-kick but it went St Mirren's way. That made it 2-1.

:27:45.:27:49.

This one made it 2-2, an absolute belter of a strike from Graeme

:27:49.:27:55.

Carey. Could the goalkeeper have saved it? I think it was a

:27:55.:28:02.

misjudgment on the keeper's part. We have seen previous three kicks

:28:02.:28:06.

and Graeme Carey knows he can make the ball dipped and swerved. We'll

:28:06.:28:16.

see some of them here. Danny Lennon said after the game that he works

:28:16.:28:19.

on it and he'd get his reward by getting calls. That is good advice

:28:19.:28:25.

for any young players - if you practise, it will come off. There

:28:25.:28:29.

is a touch of Ronaldo about that one. He is obviously working on his

:28:29.:28:36.

technique. He seems to be going through the wall or round the side

:28:36.:28:41.

of the wall, making the ball move, so credit to him. Pat Fenlon had

:28:41.:28:48.

his first half much as his manager a couple of weeks ago. He had the

:28:48.:28:58.
:28:58.:29:20.

full thing at Easter Road yesterday Hart. Chance for Rangers and Lee

:29:20.:29:30.
:29:30.:29:31.

Wallace. Flicked away. That needed a better cross from Lee Wallace,

:29:31.:29:41.
:29:41.:29:44.

after the error by Michael Hart. Great pass from Wallace. That's a

:29:44.:29:50.

decent ball across. Stephen Whitaker coming in. Defended well

:29:50.:30:00.
:30:00.:30:04.

in the end by Ivan Sproule. It was a good cross. In his first home

:30:04.:30:12.

game as manager, Peter mate, trying to get his point across. That was

:30:12.:30:22.
:30:22.:30:40.

three at home against Rangers. That's really good from Ivan

:30:40.:30:45.

Sproule. And what a chance for Leigh Griffiths, just before half-

:30:45.:30:54.

time! Ivan Sproule took on Whitaker and won that battle. But that was

:30:54.:31:04.
:31:04.:31:04.

poor from Leigh Griffiths. There was a shout for handball, but it

:31:04.:31:13.

did not look like it. One or two Hibs players complaining. It

:31:13.:31:23.
:31:23.:31:31.

appeared to come off the chest of visits to Easter Road. And they're

:31:31.:31:39.

proving forward again. Penalty kick. Michael Hart has been penalised

:31:39.:31:47.

following the tangle with Lee Wallace. Their arms were linked,

:31:47.:31:52.

but Michael Hart certainly held him back. It is a correct call, just as

:31:52.:31:59.

it was moments ago to deny Hibs a penalty. Jelavic has not really

:31:59.:32:05.

been involved in the match. But that perfect from Nikica Jelavic!

:32:05.:32:11.

Seven goals in his last 10 coming into today. He serves the

:32:11.:32:16.

goalkeeper the wrong way, it is perfectly placed, into the corner.

:32:16.:32:26.
:32:26.:32:41.

Paul Hanlon unlucky not to have scored here. That's a nice step-

:32:41.:32:51.
:32:51.:32:51.

over. The Rangers fans are happy with what they are seeing now. It

:32:51.:32:59.

comes across, Jelavic! He got away from his man and helped himself to

:32:59.:33:03.

his second double of the season. He got away from Michael Hart, and

:33:03.:33:13.
:33:13.:33:35.

that's a really simple header. Hanlon, that has taken a deflection.

:33:35.:33:40.

McGregor has to go back. He has not been overworked today, but he did

:33:40.:33:42.

been overworked today, but he did really well to get back following

:33:42.:33:48.

his defection. I was at this game yesterday, Rangers were not at

:33:48.:33:52.

their creative best, but it is about grinding it out, Rangers and

:33:52.:33:57.

Celtic are good at it. Yes, Rangers have been renowned for it,

:33:57.:34:00.

especially under Walter Smith, and Ally McCoist seems to have carried

:34:00.:34:05.

it on. There's only three of for games a season where all the

:34:05.:34:09.

players play to their potential. It is about picking up points whenever

:34:09.:34:15.

you can. Maybe at times, they have not been dominating games, but when

:34:16.:34:20.

you have got strikers like Nikica Jelavic, and players like Steven

:34:20.:34:23.

Davis, that's the difference between the top two winning more

:34:23.:34:26.

games than the rest, because they have always got that little bit of

:34:26.:34:31.

quality. Someone always steps up to the mark and gets the points.

:34:31.:34:35.

might have been different, yesterday, had Leigh Griffiths

:34:35.:34:39.

taken his chance. This was in stoppage time at the end of the

:34:39.:34:44.

first 45. You dream of a chance like this, don't you? You do, when

:34:44.:34:47.

you play the Old Firm, there is a defining moment in the game, where

:34:47.:34:53.

you think, it could have swung away. Pat Finnan said after the game just

:34:53.:35:02.

as much. When you do have a chance, you have to be clinical. -- Pat

:35:02.:35:09.

Fenlon. And Leigh Griffiths strikes a good ball, he would have been

:35:09.:35:19.

very disappointed with that finish. This was Leigh Griffiths towards

:35:19.:35:24.

the Rangers supporters, that has got to be inflammatory, hasn't it?

:35:24.:35:29.

It is a little bit naive, we have got to put it that way. He has had

:35:29.:35:34.

a little chance to get his name on the scoresheet, it is probably a

:35:34.:35:41.

bit naive. I think he will learn from it. He's back up in Scotland

:35:41.:35:45.

on loan, doing reasonably well. It is something the manager will have

:35:45.:35:50.

a word with him about. Hibs had a great first hour of the match, then

:35:50.:35:55.

conceded twice, and sadly for him, Michael Hart was implicated for

:35:55.:35:58.

Michael Hart was implicated for both goals. Did he get himself in

:35:58.:36:02.

the wrong position here? We have got to credit Lee Wallace for

:36:02.:36:12.

gambling. That's the left back, trying to make things happen. But

:36:12.:36:15.

that's the defining moment of the game, you get a penalty kick.

:36:15.:36:19.

That's what Hibs were undone by yesterday, two set pieces, a

:36:19.:36:23.

penalty kick and a corner kick. Probably out with fat, there was

:36:23.:36:33.
:36:33.:36:37.

not an awful lot between the teams. -- outwith that. His 13th and 14th

:36:37.:36:40.

-- outwith that. His 13th and 14th goals of the season, which makes

:36:40.:36:50.
:36:50.:36:56.

That just underlines the importance of Nikica Jelavic to Rangers. Will

:36:56.:37:01.

there be an important decision that has to be made in January, do you

:37:01.:37:05.

think, for Great White? I suspect there will be, if it is not in

:37:05.:37:15.
:37:15.:37:15.

January, it will be next summer. -- Craig White. There was a �7 million

:37:15.:37:19.

bid made in the summer for him. He has continued his good form. He

:37:19.:37:26.

will be going to the Euro 2012 with Croatia. So, he is in demand. But

:37:26.:37:30.

if Nikica Jelavic goes, that will be a huge boost to Celtic. Celtic

:37:31.:37:35.

will not have to sell anybody, I don't think. So Rangers could be in

:37:35.:37:40.

trouble if he goes. Why match which did not happen because of the fog

:37:40.:37:44.

was Dunfermline against Kilmarnock. It was called off 90 minutes from

:37:44.:37:50.

kick-off, did you agree with that decision? I think you can see the

:37:50.:37:56.

reaction, by all accounts, the players were happy to go and try it,

:37:56.:38:04.

and see if it went away. I understand the referee is making a

:38:04.:38:07.

decision to look after the safety of the players. But if the players

:38:07.:38:11.

do not feel under any threat, sometimes I think we have to go

:38:11.:38:15.

with the players and management. Maybe the decision was made just a

:38:15.:38:20.

little bit too early. If they had held on for another hour, before

:38:20.:38:28.

the decision was made. Let's have a look at the Clydesdale Bank Premier

:38:28.:38:31.

League before we go. It is still four points at the top between

:38:31.:38:35.

Rangers and Celtic. Motherwell have increased their position of

:38:35.:38:38.

increased their position of strength in third place, now seven

:38:38.:38:48.
:38:48.:38:54.

Tuesday night in Perth for the rearranged match between St

:39:04.:39:12.

Johnstone and Aberdeen, that will We will have all of that action for
