The story of the SPL weekend is coming up. You will see the

:00:27.:00:31.

highlights of all six matches in the next 45 minutes. Billy Dodds

:00:31.:00:36.

will do the talking that, starting with the match he was at yesterday.

:00:36.:00:40.

Bottom of the league done Fairman it struggling to -- there is a

:00:40.:00:50.
:00:50.:00:53.

Rangers team try to recover from It is a goal for Dundee United, and

:00:53.:01:01.

you have to say that they deserve that one! This is Paul Dixon. What

:01:01.:01:11.
:01:11.:01:12.

of space to zero! -- lot of space. 2-0!

:01:12.:01:22.

Former Rangers defender Macmillan are lined up for Dunfermline

:01:22.:01:26.

against his former team. Chris Smith was in goal, with Ian Turner

:01:26.:01:31.

still injured. It and will cousin's return for Rangers began, and the

:01:31.:01:37.

one change to team Sol Lee McCulloch deployed as a striker. --

:01:37.:01:44.

McCulloch deployed as a striker. -- Daniel cousin's. He has an this

:01:44.:01:51.

read that completely. He may fancy this himself here. He is unlucky.

:01:51.:02:01.
:02:01.:02:03.

Kirk. Berkeley brings down Buchanan. David Graham hits the post, he

:02:03.:02:13.
:02:13.:02:16.

comes back to Kirk, and it is saved by Alan McGregor. Rangers started

:02:16.:02:19.

the brighter of the team and it is unfair one who are impressive at

:02:19.:02:29.
:02:29.:02:32.

the moment. That is heard! It is 1- 0. -- that is it hurt.

:02:32.:02:37.

Rangers trail to Dunfermline. That is thanks to Andy could. He is the

:02:37.:02:46.

top scorer for did fair one. -- top scorer for up Dunfermline.

:02:46.:02:53.

Sone Aluko. They want a reaction quickly.

:02:53.:03:01.

Healey, one to one. They went behind for long.

:03:01.:03:07.

David Healy gets Rangers back into the game. It broke kindly for him,

:03:07.:03:14.

but he does not care. Needed to the Rangers fans inside East End Park.

:03:14.:03:24.
:03:24.:03:27.

-- neither to the Rangers fans. That is McCulloch, and Davies! They

:03:27.:03:37.
:03:37.:03:39.

were stunned by the Dunfermline goal. McCullough. He is going down,

:03:39.:03:49.
:03:49.:04:04.

a challenge from Mark care. It has Brilliant, what a finish! Wayne

:04:04.:04:10.

McCullough playing as a striker, an emergency striker for Ally McCoist.

:04:10.:04:19.

He does not have anyone else. He does the business for his boss.

:04:19.:04:26.

A change of pace by Davies. A really good run. Plenty of plea in

:04:26.:04:36.
:04:36.:04:51.

the middle. Healey. McCulloch! He was easy in the end for Alan

:04:51.:05:01.
:05:01.:05:06.

his troops on. They have a real battle on their hands. -- in that

:05:06.:05:15.

MacIntyre. Sone Aluko. That is a terrific goal. You cannot argue

:05:15.:05:25.
:05:25.:05:26.

with that. He has endeared himself to the Rangers fans. He has beaten

:05:26.:05:36.
:05:36.:05:46.

the line by a local. -- by Sone Aluko. Sone Aluko was the seal on

:05:46.:05:56.
:05:56.:05:59.

the line. He picked out the initial header.

:05:59.:06:06.

That is a great save. But Salim Kerkar is there, and it is four.

:06:06.:06:09.

Salim Kerkar on the field for two minutes, scored his first League

:06:10.:06:19.
:06:20.:06:38.

it from being five. it from being five.

:06:38.:06:42.

Rangers are back in form. You were there yesterday, however

:06:42.:06:48.

impressive was that from Rangers? It was an impressive response, they

:06:48.:06:52.

went a goal down as well. They went out of the Cup with a whimper

:06:52.:06:57.

against Dundee United, they go a goal down in this game and that is

:06:57.:07:00.

when the question-marks game. Rangers's key players came to the

:07:00.:07:04.

fore yesterday. They were under pressure from done from one as well.

:07:04.:07:09.

There was a shot against the post, and the goal that I get -- that

:07:09.:07:14.

Andy could scored. It was really good from in Davy Graham, from

:07:14.:07:19.

across the pitch. Once he gets here, great pace and a great strike. He

:07:19.:07:26.

is unlucky. Canon went down, you can see his left knee catching him.

:07:26.:07:30.

They were lucky to get away with a penalty there, Rangers. Perhaps it

:07:30.:07:36.

would have been difficult, as Dunfermline to go in front. You are

:07:36.:07:40.

looking at the defence, it is not a great defending, but it is all

:07:40.:07:47.

about the quality of the cross. Because this was right across the

:07:47.:07:52.

six-yard box, with pace, the defenders do not want to touch him.

:07:52.:07:57.

It will put it in the net. It was a great start with Dunfermline.

:07:57.:08:02.

Claimed Wayne McCullough up front work wonders, didn't it? What of

:08:02.:08:07.

options, everything that they had been missing. They tried to place

:08:07.:08:11.

reunited last week, but they could not. He has a handle on this first

:08:11.:08:16.

goal, and an awareness once he gets there. He spots the runner, and it

:08:16.:08:21.

is unlucky for Dunfermline. You can click it into his chest and he is

:08:21.:08:26.

strong. I do not think it was a free kick, that which led to the

:08:26.:08:32.

goal. He is aware, knows what is around him. Was to do, Lee

:08:32.:08:39.

McCulloch, but he catches that one. Real presence about him. As I say,

:08:39.:08:44.

it is on the deck, it is in the air that you go to score goals. He has

:08:44.:08:49.

such an awareness. You see here, strength, braces team into play. He

:08:49.:08:54.

is everything they were missing against Dundee United. He has

:08:54.:08:58.

played as a striker before, but in the situation he was -- in the

:08:58.:09:03.

situation Rangers are in, he is a great find. What a flick this is.

:09:03.:09:08.

This is what allowed -- this is what allows Davies to do something

:09:08.:09:12.

he has not done in a few weeks, perhaps months, get himself up the

:09:12.:09:18.

pitch. He finds himself a goal threat. Now Rangers have options.

:09:19.:09:21.

Perhaps this league title is not over. Many people think it is, I

:09:21.:09:25.

think there was a big response from Rangers yesterday. Should he have

:09:25.:09:32.

been called into action last Sunday at Ibrox? You see when Ally McCoist

:09:32.:09:36.

look at that, whoever has come up with the thought and put him in the,

:09:36.:09:41.

the havoc he has caused, maybe have options. Now they have McCulloch

:09:41.:09:46.

and Lafferty coming back, they have cousin, they have Healey, something

:09:46.:09:49.

I said a few more weeks ago, where a Rangers could to get the goals

:09:49.:09:55.

from? Now they have options few map -- they have options. Daniel Cozens

:09:55.:10:00.

will be in action soon. This is what he was capable of at his first

:10:00.:10:06.

spell with the club. At the age of 35, does he have enough to offer?

:10:06.:10:10.

There is no doubt he has quality, this was his best game for Rangers.

:10:11.:10:16.

He believes Celtic that day. He has quality and strength, you just

:10:16.:10:21.

wonder who they will pair with whom, will it be McCulloch and cousin?

:10:21.:10:28.

Will it be silly and McCulloch? Lots of options. I said a few

:10:28.:10:32.

months ago, cousin was not a great signing. The predicament traders

:10:32.:10:37.

are in, it was a great decision. can Rangers hang in there? A they

:10:37.:10:42.

still serious contenders? For. Still with an Old Firm game to play,

:10:42.:10:46.

things are not great, but you can only look at the response they got

:10:46.:10:50.

yesterday. There is a real realisation from them yesterday, a

:10:50.:10:54.

free keep going the way be are going, on or off the park, we will

:10:54.:10:59.

for the title away. They are not ready to give up Bonet just yet.

:10:59.:11:03.

There was 11 way Neil Lennon wanted to mark his 100 match at Celtic,

:11:03.:11:09.

with an ex p will win. -- with an with an ex p will win. -- with an

:11:09.:11:19.
:11:19.:11:28.

freedom of time Castle to make it the nil.

:11:29.:11:32.

Gary Cooper with a simple finish. Celtic were unable to play that

:11:32.:11:37.

same team we scored four against Hearts in midweek. Daniel

:11:37.:11:45.

Majstorovic took over four at the regular. The central defensive pair

:11:45.:11:50.

for Hearts were drops, with Essen and old Williams and Sutherland

:11:50.:12:00.
:12:00.:12:04.

drafted in. Sampras threatening early on.

:12:04.:12:11.

Hearts defenders getting there body in front of the ball here.

:12:11.:12:21.
:12:21.:12:23.

And for more growth. There is a whiny Amer. That was close.

:12:23.:12:32.

Matthews pass. It gets away from him. Down he goes. No chance of his

:12:32.:12:38.

half-hearted penalty claim have been held up.

:12:38.:12:47.

The header flicked to Hooper. Matthews. For Brown. First time for

:12:47.:12:54.

James Forrest. This looks promising. Very promising! Old Firm match

:12:54.:13:01.

winner Joe Ledley strikes again. His seventh goal of the season.

:13:01.:13:07.

After Brown's pass played in, a forest, and at the end a tap in for

:13:07.:13:16.

Joe Ledley. 16 minutes gone, 1-0. Charlie Moore grew, a good strike.

:13:16.:13:22.

Him -- Charlie Mulgrew. There was a lot of movement on the

:13:22.:13:32.
:13:32.:13:32.

ball. Good work from Joe Ledley. James Forrest shifting through the

:13:32.:13:39.

tears. Charlie will groom with the strike.

:13:39.:13:48.

That was late. -- Charlie Mulgrew. It looked inviting, but he was

:13:48.:13:58.
:13:58.:14:15.

looking for the shot at goal. Quite the way by Essen. Lots of pressure

:14:15.:14:25.
:14:25.:14:33.

from Celtic. Looking for goal Williams. There is Mulgrew. Sliding

:14:33.:14:38.

in, Steve Williams. Free kick given. He seemed to get the ball and it is

:14:38.:14:47.

going to be a yellow card as well. Bemused, I think is the look.

:14:47.:14:55.

Powerful and pacy and it took to Celtic players to stop him. To

:14:55.:15:03.

allow last-ditch challenge and it will be a red card. Judge not to

:15:03.:15:07.

have got the ball first as he slipped through the back of Johnny

:15:07.:15:17.
:15:17.:15:29.

tapped into the side net. Inverness with their one-man advantage are

:15:29.:15:37.

looking to make it count. A disappointing finish, this one.

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:15:49.

Adam mates on the set-piece. -- Matthews. Stuck on the goal-line by

:15:49.:15:59.

Williams. It will be a second yellow card for at the Inverness

:15:59.:16:09.
:16:09.:16:21.

defender. He is off. Besides are neck Ross. -- Nick Ross. The

:16:21.:16:31.

youngster hangs his head. A real opportunity for a late equaliser.

:16:31.:16:41.
:16:41.:16:42.

Brown. One of those mesmerising runs. Terrific play. All it lacked

:16:42.:16:49.

was the finishing touch. It looks as though one call is going to have

:16:49.:16:57.

to be enough to extend Celtic's Celtic wondering if they will

:16:58.:17:02.

appeal against that red card. I am not sure they have an awful lot of

:17:02.:17:06.

the TV evidence here to back them up. Be coverage is nothing to do

:17:06.:17:12.

with us, we should point out, although we do broadcaster. Johnny

:17:12.:17:16.

Haynes just want -- runs away here. He is not interested. It do not

:17:16.:17:22.

think they have conclusive evidence if he has the ball. I think if he

:17:22.:17:26.

looks at any he's, he will have spotted it wrong. He thinks that Mr

:17:26.:17:36.
:17:36.:17:38.

a pitch has played it. Will they get with it, I am not so sure. They

:17:38.:17:44.

have been unlucky there, Celtic. was raging last week because he

:17:44.:17:49.

felt his team did not turn up. This time, did it meant we did turn up.

:17:49.:17:53.

They were much more competitive. They had a fair bit of the ball.

:17:53.:17:56.

When the chances came their way, and there were a couple of them,

:17:56.:18:00.

they did not make the most of it. He will be pleased it was the

:18:00.:18:03.

better performers. Look at the bodies in the box, you do not

:18:03.:18:09.

always get those time and the chances. This one, Nick Ross, the

:18:09.:18:13.

one thing I'll say about both chances is that you have to hit the

:18:13.:18:17.

target. If you have options in the box, you have to goal across the

:18:17.:18:20.

goalkeeper or pick them out, but you must hit the target. Terry

:18:20.:18:24.

Butcher will be pleased with the performers. Celtic did not play

:18:24.:18:29.

well. It was better than last week. Celtic, we have spoken about

:18:29.:18:35.

Rangers winning the title, the do not always play well. When you're

:18:35.:18:39.

not playing well and you are still getting the three points, that has

:18:39.:18:45.

also taken do is to keep winning games. That is 100 up for NEWLINE

:18:45.:18:55.
:18:55.:19:25.

and since he took over. -- Neil Lennon. It has not always gone

:19:25.:19:30.

smoothly but he has turned it round. As I had said, they have had their

:19:30.:19:37.

heard moments and he has had to turn around. He has turned it all

:19:37.:19:41.

around and nothing but credit for him. Eight he should be pretty

:19:41.:19:45.

happy with his record, but he does not want any more slot. A those are

:19:45.:19:50.

the goals that took Celtic to the League Cup final, last season's

:19:50.:19:54.

Scottish Cup final, a comprehensive defeat of Motherwell and Neil

:19:54.:19:59.

Lennon with his hands on silverware for the first time as manager. You

:19:59.:20:03.

do wonder, don't you, whether he might just have his hands on

:20:03.:20:08.

another three trophies this season. Certain has opportunities. What

:20:08.:20:11.

ended up at slip ups is the key games, the finals, the semi-finals,

:20:11.:20:16.

the key games like Inverness in the last game, the one that they lost

:20:16.:20:19.

the championship in the last season, that is the ones that he will not

:20:19.:20:23.

want any more slip-ups in. It is impressive reading his records are

:20:23.:20:28.

for. Motherwell were planning on holding their -- strength in the

:20:28.:20:35.

hold on for a place at. -- restaurant in the hold on third

:20:35.:20:44.

sides Swinney last met in December and so it proved again. Steven

:20:44.:20:49.

Thompson will think he should have done better with his early effort.

:20:49.:20:55.

The striker was on form but after a cross, he just could not trouble

:20:55.:21:03.

Randolph. Go home side enjoyed most of the early pressure in fact,

:21:03.:21:07.

Thompson again involved but his goal-bound header was cleared by

:21:07.:21:10.

Jennings. Stuart McCall will be asking why the former Rangers man

:21:10.:21:17.

was left unchallenged. His man on the post saved the day. The home

:21:17.:21:21.

side's hopes were up and they pressed on. And Gary Teale and

:21:21.:21:31.
:21:31.:21:33.

burial are delivered. -- newly delivered. He sure it may well have

:21:33.:21:38.

been deflected, but run-off was alert to tip over. Mother will have

:21:38.:21:47.

the first a claim for a penalty dismissed. Some good build-up play.

:21:47.:21:52.

But we are going down more in hope than expectation. Stuart McCall

:21:52.:21:57.

obviously had words at half-time as his side came out flying. A menace

:21:57.:22:07.
:22:07.:22:15.

on the left. Sampson did well to penalty claim had a little more

:22:15.:22:24.

substance. Lot looked across, but it was countered. Was it his hand,

:22:24.:22:29.

there will, and was a tap-in at the? It was close range, not a

:22:29.:22:33.

badge out. The referees is no. Peter and drabs by a sense of

:22:33.:22:36.

injustice, they were on the hunt for a winner. Once again, there is

:22:36.:22:41.

Taurean winner was pulling the strings and pulling the trigger.

:22:41.:22:45.

Fantastic fit work, Sampson again equal to the task. It would be one

:22:46.:22:50.

last chance as the clock ticked to Nell Tunnell. This time at cheeky

:22:50.:23:00.
:23:00.:23:02.

cross. To nil-nil. Did he mean it?, it did not matter because it

:23:02.:23:12.
:23:12.:23:12.

Since beating Rangers on Christmas Eve, they have not won. It is

:23:12.:23:15.

frustrating because they are playing such good football and

:23:15.:23:18.

moving it around and the expectation is good and then when

:23:18.:23:21.

they get there, they are not getting enough calls. When you

:23:21.:23:24.

getting at emitter of play and removing it slightly, you want

:23:24.:23:29.

something at the end of it. They are not getting that. The strikers

:23:29.:23:38.

are top quality -- strikers that get the goals will cost money. You

:23:39.:23:42.

need someone that is up their scoring regular it. That is why

:23:42.:23:47.

some barren have failed to pick up more points. Could they be

:23:47.:23:52.

vulnerable on Tuesday night in the Scottish Cup replay. They have lost

:23:52.:23:57.

up there before, so they will not be looking for to that trip. They

:23:57.:24:01.

would have liked to get it over and done with. They will be glad to be

:24:01.:24:06.

in it, but it is a dodgy place to go to get a cup result. We spotted

:24:06.:24:10.

in the coverage what looked like a good turnout from the mother will

:24:10.:24:13.

fans and it should be, because of the results that they had been

:24:13.:24:17.

having. Doing well in the League, playing some good football. Not far

:24:17.:24:21.

to travel. I was quite pleasantly surprised to see a good mother will

:24:21.:24:25.

turn out yesterday. With them from one having lost yesterday lunchtime,

:24:25.:24:29.

had had the chance of getting away from bottom spot. They were at home

:24:29.:24:39.
:24:39.:24:51.

from Aberdeen and Paul Mitchell was good header by Doyle. It was

:24:51.:24:55.

impressive. He nicked the ball through his leg and hit the shot.

:24:55.:25:05.
:25:05.:25:05.

That is a good save from case and run. -- Jason Brown. Wotherspoon

:25:05.:25:11.

rolls the ball at, a chance for Osborne. A good move for heads,

:25:11.:25:21.
:25:21.:25:44.

great construction of play. -- a could have chosen. Tried to drag

:25:44.:25:53.

the shot in himself. -- perhaps. A lovely goal from -- a lovely goal

:25:53.:26:03.
:26:03.:26:36.

ahead. Right across and what a -- behalf. Aberdeen's top

:26:36.:26:39.

goalscorer could not get on the end of this. It look like a decent

:26:39.:26:49.
:26:49.:27:24.

easy enough for Graham Stack. Stack It comes back on. A shot deflected.

:27:24.:27:34.
:27:34.:27:41.

It may yet -- get me had been been ahead as players's hand. A

:27:41.:27:51.
:27:51.:28:19.

Two goals in his last five, but As a manager as you always start

:28:19.:28:23.

from the back and say, if we keep a clean sheet we can possibly win the

:28:23.:28:28.

game. It is a mini revival, still a long way to go and still one point

:28:28.:28:31.

above the relegation zone. They are playing under pressure every week,

:28:31.:28:36.

Hibernian. Craig Brown was a controversial choice. Were you on

:28:36.:28:43.

that panel? I did not fought on that one. Aberdeen are unbeaten.

:28:43.:28:47.

Was that they justify it on board ahead of Neil Lennon, who won

:28:47.:28:51.

everything? I can see why it was given. And Neil Lennon should win

:28:51.:28:56.

it if he has won every game, as he won a team of before. Sometimes you

:28:56.:29:00.

must look at the progression of the team. I was worried for my old team

:29:00.:29:03.

at the start of the season. Craig Brown is getting together some good

:29:03.:29:07.

players. He suddenly turned the game around. They are unbeaten

:29:07.:29:12.

since the turn of the year. Slowly climbing of the league. Now looking

:29:12.:29:16.

as though they could finish top six. I think it is really good and I can

:29:16.:29:20.

understand why they got that award. I am really pleased for my old team,

:29:20.:29:24.

the way they have turned their fortunes around. It will not matter

:29:24.:29:29.

much if they lose on Tuesday. a big one, isn't it? I know that

:29:29.:29:32.

place better than anywhere, they will get a decent crowd there. It

:29:32.:29:37.

is the old traditional cup tie. It is a special place to play football.

:29:37.:29:41.

If Aberdeen do not turn up and play well, Queen of the South could

:29:41.:29:44.

shock them. They are playing well and will organise that the moment.

:29:45.:29:48.

The couple of high profile handshakes were noticeable by their

:29:48.:29:53.

absence yesterday, one failed to materialise at Rugby Park.

:29:53.:30:03.
:30:03.:30:15.

Kilmarnock were hoping for a win publicised spat between the two

:30:15.:30:25.

managers. He has been snubbed by his counterpart. Perhaps looking

:30:25.:30:29.

for a reaction after their 4-0 home defeat to Celtic. Other than that

:30:29.:30:36.

they have been in decent form. The former commander player has

:30:36.:30:42.

been sized to the deck in front of the come on up a bit. It is a

:30:42.:30:48.

yellow card only. Jamie Hamel is into the big as well.

:30:48.:30:55.

That is good play by Fowler. That is a great ball as well.

:30:55.:31:01.

Command a court to be in front. We have had to turn up in the box

:31:01.:31:06.

waiting for the foul the ball. He could not have asked for a better

:31:06.:31:12.

opportunity. Jamie Macdonald was there. It may

:31:12.:31:18.

have clipped the top of his crossbar.

:31:18.:31:28.
:31:28.:31:30.

So socle rose high above Andy Webster.

:31:30.:31:37.

That is a sore one for Hamill. He is booked, onto a second yellow and

:31:37.:31:43.

is gone. Shields corner. It got eyes on the

:31:43.:31:53.
:31:53.:31:55.

line, but it was put in. Paul Head remonstrate, -- Paul

:31:55.:32:02.

Hedman and strikes. Despite the best efforts on the

:32:02.:32:09.

line from Ian black. Kilmarnock are in front. Hamill.

:32:09.:32:14.

He got away from them Gordon, but he cites his former team-mate to

:32:14.:32:21.

the debt. -- but he cuts his former team mates to get.

:32:21.:32:31.
:32:31.:32:40.

ball in towards say so. The Late, Late Show from Hearts. It has come

:32:40.:32:49.

from absolutely nowhere. A great ball in. He was at the back post to

:32:49.:32:57.

guard the header towards goal. Hearts have rescued a point. There

:32:57.:33:00.

was no handshake between the managers before the game, and once

:33:00.:33:06.

again after that. Exactly the same. He is not interested. He does shake

:33:06.:33:10.

the hand of Dean Shields, Kenny Shiels's son. Something said

:33:10.:33:15.

afterwards as well. A kerfuffle. So much of the chat

:33:15.:33:19.

about that game centred on the war of words between the two managers

:33:19.:33:23.

after Kenny Shiels questioned Paulo Sergio's acceptance of the orders

:33:23.:33:28.

from above about team selection. Wide remit as a manager is to

:33:28.:33:34.

select the team. If the chairman into fears then am off, because you

:33:34.:33:42.

have to have principles. It is either back me or sack me. It is a

:33:42.:33:45.

case of sticking by your principles. case of sticking by your principles.

:33:45.:33:47.

case of sticking by your principles. There is no way I would have a

:33:47.:33:52.

chairman to me what players did it. Did you shake his hand? His hand,

:33:53.:34:00.

his neck? It is OK. He may have a future on the club

:34:00.:34:07.

comedy scene. Kenny Shiels's hand was left in fresh air as he looked

:34:07.:34:10.

for his handshake pre-match. It was not happening post-match either,

:34:10.:34:14.

when it was declined by the Hearts manager, who then went on to shake

:34:15.:34:20.

hands with the manager's son, Dean shield. Obviously had a word in his

:34:20.:34:27.

ear. Pass it on to the old man, I think that was there. Is it

:34:27.:34:31.

entertaining? Is it embarrassing? bit of both. I thought it was

:34:31.:34:35.

entertaining, but it is a little bit embarrassing as well. We do not

:34:35.:34:40.

want to see it. It is one of those things were Paolo Sergio for me

:34:40.:34:44.

should shake his hand. He has said he is angry, but he had a run-in

:34:44.:34:48.

with Jimmy Nichol as well. Isle of Kenny Shields in terms of, he is a

:34:48.:34:56.

nice man. A very nice man when you go, he has done well for us. He is

:34:56.:35:00.

then a few interviews. He is very approachable. He is not a funny man,

:35:00.:35:04.

so he should stop being funny. He is not Kevin bridges or Billy

:35:04.:35:09.

Connolly. There must come a time when he knows he is robbing people

:35:09.:35:13.

the wrong way and he must look after his own team. He had a goal

:35:13.:35:16.

at Ayr United as well, is he not guilty of just saying what he

:35:16.:35:21.

thinks? Some people say it is honesty, but I am being honest, I

:35:21.:35:25.

do not think he is funny. He must look after his own team. I do not

:35:25.:35:29.

think he would have a terror Park... He tore apart grimy's men, she

:35:29.:35:34.

would never seek and tear apart Neil Lennon's men or Walter Smith

:35:34.:35:38.

when he is in charge. He must be careful. Great expectations for

:35:38.:35:41.

Dundee United on the back of their performance at Ibrox last Sunday,

:35:42.:35:48.

how would a fair guess St Johnstone?

:35:48.:35:51.

Kilian Sheridan made a big impact Kilian Sheridan made a big impact

:35:51.:35:55.

off the bench with an equaliser at 10 Castle last weekend, and started

:35:55.:36:00.

this weekend in preference to David Robinson. Peter Histon did not have

:36:00.:36:06.

the toughest of team selection decisions, he started with the 11

:36:06.:36:16.
:36:16.:36:22.

who kicked off last Sunday's Kenneth. It was not too far away

:36:22.:36:32.

from Davison. Almost made the most of his lucky ricochet. Just a foot

:36:32.:36:42.
:36:42.:36:42.

or so wide. Paul Dixon from the corner. He has missed it! That is a

:36:42.:36:49.

calamitous goalkeeping. It's just trickled into the net. Dundee

:36:49.:36:56.

United have a somewhat fortuitous lead.

:36:56.:37:02.

That is a lovely ball for the craft. They get there before. He now does

:37:02.:37:08.

it past him. What will the referee decide? He will book Beecroft. He

:37:08.:37:14.

feels Croft was guilty of diving. As you will see you. That is

:37:14.:37:24.
:37:24.:37:25.

dreadful from Croft. Here comes a croft again. That is a decent

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

penalty claim from the looks of it. The referee is not interested.

:37:35.:37:40.

Dickson for daily. A lovely ball from delay for Gary Mackay. Caddy

:37:40.:37:46.

pick-up a team-mate? It is Callum Davidson into his own net. Two own

:37:46.:37:52.

goals for St Johnstone. He later's leader is doubled. Great play from

:37:53.:37:57.

Dili, then Mackie and Stephen. Deverson looks like he could get

:37:57.:38:06.

out of the way of this. He just diverts it into his own net.

:38:06.:38:11.

Using great pace once more. Could this be united's third? They could

:38:12.:38:21.
:38:22.:38:36.

save. Another great turn of speed back in its now. He United's

:38:36.:38:46.

defence stood and watched as Liam take's ball was Coleman. I feel he

:38:46.:38:52.

should have come for that one. Anderson scores for St Johnstone.

:38:53.:39:02.
:39:03.:39:05.

Mackay Stephen MACKAY. That is brilliant trickery. Here is Rankin.

:39:05.:39:15.

That is just sensational stuff. One can almost finished it off. Still

:39:15.:39:21.

United's press. So close reunited's third. He is such a threat in the

:39:21.:39:31.
:39:31.:39:35.

air. Dixon. Johnny Russell at the back post, and it has crept in. He

:39:35.:39:40.

could not get there. Johnny Russell did not look favoured to win this

:39:40.:39:46.

ball at the back post. He guided a brilliant header past the keeper.

:39:46.:39:56.
:39:56.:40:01.

Dixon's delivery is excellent as well. 3-1 United lead. Dixon.

:40:01.:40:05.

Another good looking cross. John Daly with the header. And

:40:05.:40:15.
:40:15.:40:15.

frantically past her in common. -- emphatically past the goalkeeper.

:40:15.:40:25.
:40:25.:40:26.

United are 4-1 up. Delay before Russell. Through nicely. He is

:40:26.:40:31.

chasing, another mistake in the St Johnstone defence, and a tap-in for

:40:31.:40:36.

the substitute. It is his first goal in the United should. And he

:40:36.:40:42.

surely will never score a simpler one. -- first goal in eight United

:40:42.:40:52.
:40:52.:40:54.

shirts. United are on easy street in injury-time. Is there to be a

:40:54.:41:02.

consolation for St Johnstone? It is a good save. He came through a

:41:02.:41:08.

crowd of players. He could only crowd of players. He could only

:41:08.:41:11.

have seen this late. It is a good save.

:41:11.:41:15.

I feel as if I am mentioning Mackay Stephen the most weekend now. They

:41:15.:41:21.

have unearthed a big talent. Another one. Hm. Honestly. We all

:41:21.:41:28.

know about his pace. The set-up that goal. Look at how quick he is.

:41:28.:41:34.

He has an awareness and is so intelligent. One about this?

:41:34.:41:38.

would break my ankles if I tried that. It is amazing. It is up there

:41:38.:41:47.

with Eden bt D. If he plays like this, you just wonder, how long can

:41:47.:41:52.

you hold on to him? He has every attribute. He was two years at

:41:52.:41:58.

Liverpool. I think he had a hit in today problem at the time was held

:41:58.:42:01.

him back. If you're at Liverpool in the first place, you have something

:42:01.:42:05.

special. Yes, and sometimes you do not fulfil your potential until

:42:05.:42:11.

later years. At 22, he has really come to the fore. You see his

:42:11.:42:16.

delivery last week at Ibrox and that wonderful skill yesterday, the

:42:16.:42:19.

cross is that he is picking out and the goals that he is going, the

:42:19.:42:24.

complete package. Talking of top deliveries, have Dundee United

:42:24.:42:28.

given up hope of keeping Paul Dixon's contract? They would do

:42:28.:42:32.

well to hold on to him. If they were going to, they would do would

:42:32.:42:36.

have been done by now. They have realised he will go on to bigger

:42:36.:42:42.

things. He set up one of the goals at Ibrox last week. Another top

:42:42.:42:46.

prospect. St Johnstone must best back from that. They have a cup

:42:46.:42:53.

replay against Hearts on Tuesday. Well the goalkeeper be lost? I feel

:42:53.:42:58.

sorry for him, I think mentally he is looking at him and thinking,

:42:58.:43:05.

c'est que care at the end, it was a bathing kick. -- see his kick out

:43:05.:43:11.

at the end. We will be working together, I am not sure it is wise,

:43:11.:43:16.

on Wednesday night. Bear United versus Falkirk. The battle of the

:43:16.:43:22.

losing League Cup semi-finals. -- here United. I was very impressed

:43:22.:43:26.

with then against Celtic. It the hard won and I can see it going to

:43:26.:43:28.

extra time. extra time.

:43:29.:43:32.

Before we go, you would radically still bad Premier League. Four

:43:32.:43:36.

points in at between Celtic and Rangers. Motherwell at a six-point

:43:36.:43:40.

advantage in third place. Dundee United taking Aberdeen's place in

:43:40.:43:45.

the top six. Not much movement in the bottom half of the table. But

:43:45.:43:48.

there they are a point better off than Dunfermline.

:43:49.:43:58.

Confirmation of the midweek matches. Those three replays. And the

:43:58.:44:07.

rearranged match between Falkirk and Ayr United.

SPL next weekend. All Saturday games.
