The Scottish Cup last weekend was a shock-free zone. All the SPL teams

:01:31.:01:34.

still alive pending this week's fourth round replays. And all 12

:01:34.:01:37.

back in league action this weekend. Highlights coming up and we will

:01:37.:01:40.

hear from Hearts manager Paulo Sergio. Let's start at Tynecastle.

:01:40.:01:43.

An amazing game and Paul Mitchell An amazing game and Paul Mitchell

:01:43.:01:53.
:01:53.:01:55.

watched it. The referee get us underway here at

:01:55.:02:05.
:02:05.:02:33.

inside. Early corner for Hearts. Zacchaeus kiss has broken away. --

:02:33.:02:43.

Zaliukas. Marius Zaliukas with a very simple task to knock it passed

:02:43.:02:53.
:02:53.:02:54.

Samson. MacGowan goes through. The referee says penalty. If that is a

:02:54.:03:02.

penalty, Zaliukas is of. The referee goes for the back pocket.

:03:02.:03:06.

His last involvement in the match is to take down Paul McGowan. Great

:03:06.:03:16.
:03:16.:03:18.

ball through from Kenny Maguire and -- Kenny MacLean. MacGowan takes

:03:19.:03:21.

the penalty. Am Paul McGowan equalises. His 6th goal of the

:03:21.:03:31.
:03:31.:04:06.

season. Steven Thompson has scored. 18 minutes gone. Really good header.

:04:06.:04:15.

What a goal. He is so capable of doing things like this. Was there

:04:15.:04:25.
:04:25.:04:29.

are push in? Nestled in the corner. What a romance this has been. Same

:04:29.:04:35.

Mirren come forward again. Thomson thinks there should be a corner.

:04:35.:04:45.
:04:45.:04:47.

There will be a goal kick. Readies Gatt will Carroll said. Hearts have

:04:47.:04:55.

gone ahead. They had been dominated by St Mirren in the second half,

:04:55.:05:03.

but the throw-in allowed Hearts to get the ball in. Seen Mirren were

:05:03.:05:13.
:05:13.:05:13.

shell-shocked here. -- St Mirren. Hearts press again. Hearts have the

:05:13.:05:23.
:05:23.:05:32.

lead. He can shoot. He has! He has scored his second hat-trick for

:05:32.:05:42.
:05:42.:05:47.

Hearts. Craig Samson warned be happy at this. -- will not be happy.

:05:47.:05:53.

Incredible game. Danny Lennon must be wondering how the score can be

:05:53.:06:03.
:06:03.:06:07.

like this. St Mirren's frustrations continue. Stretched to ten men.

:06:07.:06:17.
:06:17.:06:17.

Thomson could not trouble the goalkeeper. Sampson gathers. That

:06:17.:06:24.

could be a pass back. The referee says yes. He was caught after words,

:06:24.:06:30.

but it was a pass back. Hearts have a chance. Seven on the line at

:06:30.:06:40.
:06:40.:06:42.

plaster goalkeeper. That is the 5th for Hearts at Tynecastle, despite

:06:42.:06:52.
:06:52.:06:53.

for Hearts at Tynecastle, despite being down to ten men.

:06:53.:07:02.

Were you worried when you were 2-0 down and Salyut is it was sent off?

:07:02.:07:09.

At that moment, you think that anything can happen. -- Zaliukas.

:07:09.:07:13.

We had to change our strategy and the position on the pitch. We had

:07:13.:07:19.

to find solutions to fight for the results. It is possible it is not

:07:19.:07:22.

for the first time that happens that a team with one man down wins

:07:22.:07:27.

the game. At that moment, I was very focused and speaking with my

:07:27.:07:33.

assistant about what we do to try to change this situation for us.

:07:33.:07:39.

is that something you can practise? Being down to ten men? Of course.

:07:39.:07:45.

Sometimes we have people who cannot attend training sessions. Sometimes

:07:45.:07:50.

we try to recreate situations as a well. Readies Tatchell is a

:07:51.:07:59.

terrific player. Three strikes on his left foot from outside the

:07:59.:08:02.

his left foot from outside the penalty box. There is no doubt. He

:08:02.:08:12.
:08:12.:08:23.

has the capacity to shoot. He is one of my maybe best players. I

:08:23.:08:30.

accept that today, of course, we have to speak about the old team,

:08:30.:08:38.

but I am pleased for him. -- the whole team. Their defensive work

:08:39.:08:48.
:08:49.:08:50.

and the responsibility that he takes. He made a fantastic job

:08:50.:08:56.

yesterday. It is easy to see and talk about a player, but I never

:08:56.:09:02.

talk about a player, but I never liked to do that. Everybody does

:09:02.:09:07.

this job on the pitch. It is for all of the team, even those who did

:09:07.:09:11.

not play yesterday that the credit should go to. Of course, you have

:09:11.:09:16.

to speak about Rogalski tell because he scored three fantastic

:09:16.:09:26.
:09:26.:09:27.

goals. His contract is up in a fortnight. Can you keep them for

:09:27.:09:37.
:09:37.:09:37.

the rest of the season? Of course we want to keep him. I think he

:09:37.:09:41.

wants to stay here as well. Sometimes you can read things in

:09:41.:09:45.

the newspaper because it is someone's job to write that. But I

:09:45.:09:48.

believe he will stay with us. believe he will stay with us.

:09:48.:09:52.

You're not happy about the yellow card shown to Ian Black in the game

:09:52.:09:59.

yesterday. He tried to trap the player, didn't he? We can see the

:09:59.:10:06.

player is still playing. He does not arrive to make a fault as I

:10:06.:10:13.

think it is too much for a yellow card for that. I was angry with

:10:13.:10:15.

that because this yellow card takes Ian Black from an important game

:10:15.:10:21.

Ian Black from an important game for us, the one against Celtic.

:10:21.:10:26.

Maybe he is paying because he has some kind of reputation. But if it

:10:27.:10:30.

happens right now, that does not allow me to do my job and tried to

:10:30.:10:37.

change the situation. Try to change M? Tried to change them. I think he

:10:37.:10:41.

is improving the lot. In the last six games, he has had no yellow

:10:41.:10:47.

cards. He is focused on football. I believe he can be very useful for

:10:47.:10:52.

their national team, so why give him this reputation when I am

:10:52.:10:57.

trying to change this. It is hard for me and it is hard for him. It

:10:57.:11:04.

is unfair. I was angry with that. But the referee spoke with me and

:11:04.:11:09.

he was fantastic when he did that because I was screaming wife. I

:11:09.:11:15.

have to accept them and I respect him. But I suspect -- that I

:11:15.:11:22.

believe that was a mistake and that is hard for him -- hard for us and

:11:22.:11:30.

the team because Ian Black will miss an important game. You said he

:11:30.:11:35.

has been good in the last six games. You have had a great run of results

:11:35.:11:37.

You have had a great run of results with lots of things happening off

:11:37.:11:40.

the pitch which could be distracting you from the main thing.

:11:40.:11:49.

But look at these results. You are up to third place in the lead now.

:11:49.:11:55.

I am not too concerned about third place. I know that St Johnstone and

:11:55.:12:02.

mother well have played less games than ours. -- mother well. But I am

:12:02.:12:10.

not concerned about that. When we had problems three months ago, we

:12:10.:12:20.
:12:20.:12:21.

were improving a lot. We beat Celtic at home. We lost against

:12:21.:12:25.

Rangers at home, but I believe we should have won that game. We

:12:25.:12:32.

played well. In that moment, the problems started to happen every

:12:32.:12:37.

day. The first impact of all of those problems was very hard to

:12:37.:12:44.

deal with. We tried to put things together and people believed that

:12:44.:12:49.

things can change in the future. So we took some time to react. Now we

:12:49.:12:59.
:12:59.:13:04.

have the same problems, but I think Do you ever know what is going to

:13:04.:13:14.

happen next, as Hearts manager? never know. I am positive and I

:13:14.:13:17.

believe that the people managing Hearts are responsible people and

:13:17.:13:25.

they know they have to put things in place. Sometimes I read in the

:13:25.:13:31.

newspapers that lots of people are seeing it is a sad situation and

:13:31.:13:39.

this may be helps to bring people together. I cannot agree with that.

:13:39.:13:45.

The situation is bad. The way we deal with that is what makes the

:13:45.:13:51.

difference. Sometimes even that credit people want to take from us,

:13:51.:13:56.

from the group, from the players and technical staff. The people who

:13:56.:14:05.

work with us every day, it is our credit to get results. Meanwhile,

:14:05.:14:09.

we are living with these kind of problems. You can say nothing

:14:09.:14:15.

different about that. How much good the squad change do you think, by

:14:15.:14:19.

the end of January? Are you worrying about what that might mean

:14:19.:14:29.
:14:29.:14:29.

to the squad? It is a very, very tough month. For me January is like

:14:29.:14:36.

90 days because it never ends. I believe we can lose two or three

:14:36.:14:44.

players by the end of the month. People can come with the money and

:14:44.:14:48.

we will lose the players because we need to sell and everybody knows

:14:48.:14:54.

that. We need to sell but we are not just going to give the players

:14:54.:15:01.

away. We need to sell because we need the money. The will not be

:15:01.:15:07.

giving them away for free? course, some people might think

:15:07.:15:12.

they can come in on the last day of the transfer window with a little

:15:12.:15:18.

bit of money and think they can take when they want. No chance?

:15:18.:15:26.

That's right. The player who turned down Rangers' pre-contract offer

:15:26.:15:36.
:15:36.:15:40.

then turned out against them at its Rangers were minus their injured

:15:40.:15:50.
:15:50.:15:52.

goalkeeper. They did have one man back after suspension. The headline

:15:52.:15:58.

man. He has been in the papers all week. He has slipped through but it

:15:58.:16:05.

is off side. That was a good run by the Spaniard. A bit too early. Well

:16:06.:16:15.

off. He finished it well, though. Davies. That has come right through

:16:15.:16:25.
:16:25.:16:25.

to Healy. Healey scored in each of his last couple of Rangers games.

:16:25.:16:34.

He was not expecting that. Anderson lost flight of it. It goes Rangers

:16:34.:16:42.

way. Here is Aluko. Jelavic to his left, the this to his right.

:16:43.:16:50.

Jelavic! There is the breakthrough for Rangers! St Johnstone are

:16:50.:16:57.

raging. Rangers took a quick free- kick. It was Davies who took it

:16:57.:17:04.

initially. Aluko scampering forward. Jelavic is of side there, Callum

:17:04.:17:10.

Davidson playing him on. David Healy was in an offside position.

:17:10.:17:14.

It is the quickness of the free- kick that St Johnstone are not

:17:14.:17:24.
:17:24.:17:26.

happy about. It is 1-0 to the champions. Aluko. Good skill by

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

Aluko. Jelavic. That is Enckelman. Callum Davidson is involved. This

:17:39.:17:48.
:17:49.:17:49.

is a good move by Aluko initially. Jelavic denied. A local having such

:17:49.:17:59.
:17:59.:18:02.

an inconsistent game. The this. He is going to get the corner. The

:18:02.:18:07.

referee is changing his mind after originally giving an goal kick.

:18:07.:18:13.

That is off the line by Robertson. Good skill by Aluko. He is

:18:13.:18:23.
:18:23.:18:28.

ambitious. David Robertson, there he was. Nice hat! It is Liam

:18:28.:18:36.

Craig's ball. It is then! And out of nothing! St Johnstone are back

:18:36.:18:44.

in the game. Ocker Mecca From B Liam Craig cross turned end to his

:18:44.:18:54.
:18:54.:19:22.

own net by the USA international Aluko. Healey. That is Winkleman.

:19:22.:19:27.

Wallace did not go anywhere it Hearts. Had he done so, Rangers

:19:27.:19:37.
:19:37.:19:41.

could have been back where it hurts. It is a free-kick to Rangers. I

:19:41.:19:47.

challenge on Jelavic. McCoist knows that Rangers cannot afford to drop

:19:47.:19:54.

any more points. Jelavic is the air! Rangers are back in front left

:19:54.:20:04.
:20:04.:20:05.

tend to goal. What a save it was from England to be fair but he

:20:05.:20:15.
:20:15.:20:22.

The Rangers substitute. This is for Jelavic. Shouts for a penalty, but

:20:22.:20:29.

he has not getting an. Blocked by Craig. Mackie will clear. No spot-

:20:29.:20:39.
:20:39.:20:40.

kick, says the referee. Davies. Worth the effort. That would have

:20:40.:20:43.

made the points absolutely safe, if made the points absolutely safe, if

:20:43.:20:51.

they are not already. Rangers were 15 points ahead of

:20:51.:20:55.

Celtic in early November, now they are two points behind. Are you

:20:55.:21:00.

surprised by the big change at the top of the table? It is not normal

:21:00.:21:10.
:21:10.:21:11.

to lose such a big difference and so quickly. Rangers have lost that

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

advantage from Celtic. They have lost such an influential player in

:21:22.:21:31.

Steven Naismith. He plays very well. Also, he has a special spirit which

:21:31.:21:41.
:21:41.:21:41.

he shares with his team mates. I think it was a great loss for them.

:21:41.:21:43.

The St Johnstone manager was not The St Johnstone manager was not

:21:43.:21:48.

too happy about the first goal for Rangers. He reckoned that the free

:21:48.:21:52.

kick was taken from the wrong place and the referee should have called

:21:52.:21:57.

it back. What do you think? First of all, I should say that I don't

:21:57.:22:03.

like to do that. The referee has to take decisions in the moment. And

:22:03.:22:12.

we sit here and watch the replay, it is easy for us. It is in front

:22:12.:22:18.

of them. He has control of everything. I think the players

:22:18.:22:25.

have lost their focus in that moment. Then the lost a goal.

:22:25.:22:28.

Jelavic scored both goals for Rangers yesterday. How important is

:22:28.:22:32.

Rangers yesterday. How important is it that they keep them? The very

:22:32.:22:41.

important. A team that wants to fight for titles should not lose

:22:41.:22:51.
:22:51.:22:51.

players like Jimmy Smith or Jelavic. -- players like Steven Naismith or

:22:51.:22:55.

Jelavic. A were the lucky that they did not have a player sent off

:22:55.:23:02.

did not have a player sent off yesterday? Did this look like

:23:02.:23:11.

another yellow card for obstruction? Like I say, it is

:23:11.:23:14.

unfair to the referee to make these kinds of analysis. But compared to

:23:14.:23:19.

the other one he had before, I think this one is worse than the

:23:19.:23:29.
:23:29.:23:36.

other. If he had a yellow card last It was not exactly a relegation

:23:36.:23:39.

eliminator at East End Park yesterday but there was certainly

:23:39.:23:45.

the potential to make a difference in the drop zone. It was shaping up

:23:45.:23:52.

to be a straight fight between the two teams to escape relegation.

:23:52.:23:56.

Yesterday's Head to Head was high stakes. Alastair Lamont has the

:23:56.:24:06.
:24:06.:24:07.

highlights. Joe Cardle will be the man to put this one into the

:24:07.:24:17.
:24:17.:24:20.

Hibernian box. The keeper is beaten! Dunfermline have the lead!

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

The Hibs defence stood and watched. Jim MacIntyre will be delighted.

:24:30.:24:38.

Martin Hardie Corals one. Brown hurled himself to be left to keep

:24:38.:24:48.
:24:48.:24:54.

that one out. -- curls one. A good block there. Griffiths! And it is

:24:54.:25:00.

an equaliser for Hibernian. Leigh Griffiths with his 6th goal of the

:25:00.:25:08.

season. That might have confused the defender. Leigh Griffiths

:25:08.:25:18.
:25:18.:25:18.

fairly a rifle this one past Ian Turner. -- rifled. Barrow man goes

:25:18.:25:28.
:25:28.:25:34.

down. He felt he was shoved the air. -- shove there. This man has shown

:25:34.:25:44.

good energy throughout. He takes on the short, that is a good effort. -

:25:44.:25:54.
:25:54.:25:54.

- the shot. Griffiths with a neat turn. He did not really get hold of

:25:54.:26:03.

that shot but it is good skill. He has looked lively throughout.

:26:03.:26:09.

Cardle will keep at one end. He goes for the shot when he might

:26:09.:26:19.
:26:19.:26:23.

have been better served putting in across. -- a cross. It is bowled

:26:23.:26:31.

out to Callum Booth. Griffiths for Garry O'Connor. And it is Garry

:26:31.:26:40.

O'Connor with a 12th goal of the season. Lovely link up play between

:26:40.:26:44.

Griffiths in the corner and no chance for Turner to keep that one

:26:44.:26:54.
:26:54.:27:01.

out. Hibs have turned around here. That man was completely unmarked.

:27:01.:27:08.

Fortunately for Hibs they had a defender on the line to turn it

:27:08.:27:18.
:27:18.:27:20.

away. Willis took Buchanan at the back post and it is an equaliser.

:27:20.:27:28.

It is Liam McCarron the substitute. Dunfermline have plugged away and

:27:28.:27:33.

they have earned that second goal this afternoon. It is all to play

:27:33.:27:43.
:27:43.:27:44.

for at East End Park. A lovely cool finish from Buchanan. How will Hibs

:27:44.:27:50.

respond to the loss of that equaliser? Here is Griffiths. The

:27:50.:27:57.

shot is away and it has gone past Ian Turner. A disaster for the

:27:57.:28:03.

Dunfermline goalkeeper. A second goal of the afternoon for Griffiths.

:28:03.:28:13.

Hibs immediately respond to take the lead once more. Can Dunfermline

:28:13.:28:23.
:28:23.:28:31.

somehow clawed their way back into the game? -- clot their way -- claw.

:28:31.:28:37.

Hibs looking for what would surely be at teller 4th goal. Garry

:28:37.:28:42.

O'Connor may well be the man to provide it. He is up against Potter.

:28:42.:28:49.

He goes down in a heap and he is going to be booked for that. Potter

:28:49.:28:56.

leaves his leg trailing. He did go down rather dramatically, I am not

:28:56.:29:06.
:29:06.:29:09.

sure that did him any favours. That was a big win for Hibs, I know that

:29:09.:29:19.

might not be great for anyone from Hearts? I do not have enemies in

:29:19.:29:25.

football. It is a sport so everybody should be in it to win

:29:25.:29:35.
:29:35.:29:37.

but we respect our opponents. I want Hibs to be a strong side.

:29:37.:29:45.

it help Hearts F Hibs are a strong side? We want to beat them but when

:29:45.:29:53.

we play against them we do not want them to be weak. We want to beat

:29:53.:29:58.

them because we are stronger and better but I think Hibs is a good

:29:58.:30:08.
:30:08.:30:11.

team. Hibs have good players. and rivalry is an important thing?

:30:11.:30:21.
:30:21.:30:21.

Of course. It is so important. The Old Firm, the rivalry between us

:30:21.:30:29.

and Hibs. Aberdeen and Dundee, it is fantastic and people enjoy this.

:30:29.:30:34.

Aberdeen at home to Kilmarnock, Jonathan Sutherland can talk us

:30:35.:30:44.

through it. Let's be honest, this was not a classic at Pittodrie.

:30:44.:30:50.

Kilmarnock had the edge in terms of chances. This shot was just guided

:30:50.:30:59.

over the goalkeeper. The creativity on show resided mainly with the

:30:59.:31:08.

away side. This handling was not pristine. Not the greatest

:31:08.:31:13.

defending from the new Aberdeen club captain. Aberdeen were looking

:31:13.:31:20.

to continue and up turn in club fortunes. Into the second half and

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

Kilmarnock continued to look the more likely. This man has been

:31:31.:31:41.

racking up the goals of late and he almost managed to continue that

:31:41.:31:49.

here. With two goals from his last four games he was clearly confident.

:31:49.:31:55.

Aberdeen almost scored thanks to away would header from this man.

:31:55.:32:03.

But the keeper was alert to the danger. The more clear cut chances

:32:03.:32:12.

were coming Kilmarnock's way. This perfect pass did not lead to a

:32:12.:32:19.

perfect shot. Not the most perfect game of all time. 0-0 the final

:32:19.:32:29.
:32:29.:32:30.

Before the game, minutes signed -- and minutes' silence for Bill

:32:30.:32:40.
:32:40.:32:45.

Dickie could died on Tuesday. -- Sometimes all at effort to keep the

:32:45.:32:50.

ball in is not worth it. Omar Daley took full advantage here. Ryan

:32:51.:33:00.
:33:01.:33:06.

Esson made the save. From Tom Tay Lee's corner, Ryan SM Cos some of

:33:06.:33:16.
:33:16.:33:19.

his own problems. However, the ball ended up over the bar. Next up, a

:33:19.:33:24.

moment of possible embarrassment for this defender. Calls for a

:33:24.:33:31.

handball. The Spanish defender remains poker-faced. Johnny Hayes

:33:31.:33:41.
:33:41.:33:43.

was the captain. He tested Darren Randolph. The average age of the

:33:43.:33:48.

Inverness players was just 22 years old. The more experienced

:33:48.:33:58.
:33:58.:34:01.

Motherwell side... Motherwell chance their arm with another shout

:34:01.:34:09.

for handball. The fingers were pointing at Kenny Shiels a. --

:34:09.:34:18.

Gillet. The referee waved the claims away. Gregory tardy was

:34:18.:34:28.

looking for his 8th goal of the season. -- Gregory Tade. What I

:34:28.:34:38.
:34:38.:34:40.

call this was. -- a goal. Victory call this was. -- a goal. Victory

:34:40.:34:44.

for Inverness. Motherwell slipped to 4th.

:34:44.:34:48.

As soon as you finished with the game against St Mirren yesterday,

:34:49.:34:53.

do you start thinking about Inverness next week two yes. That

:34:53.:34:58.

is the way we work. After one game, you think about the next one. We

:34:59.:35:03.

have to work a lot to get ready to go there and make a good result. It

:35:03.:35:13.
:35:13.:35:16.

is always the same story. I have to listen to everyone who is talking

:35:16.:35:20.

these things that I can't understand. People talk about

:35:20.:35:24.

Inverness being hard and it is frozen. It is this and that. That

:35:24.:35:28.

is the first thing we have to change in terms of mentality.

:35:28.:35:34.

Playing in Inverness should be the same as playing at Tynecastle. It

:35:34.:35:43.

is one pitch, one referee, 1 ball, two teams. I believe they are a

:35:43.:35:52.

strong side. They have a team with a strong spirit. They are people

:35:52.:35:58.

who will fight for every metre of the pitch. We have to be ready for

:35:58.:36:05.

that. After that, if we are able to do that, every single game, in the

:36:05.:36:15.
:36:15.:36:16.

end... That courage and that spirit and this philosophy should be there.

:36:16.:36:26.
:36:26.:36:30.

and this philosophy should be there. I hope we can do that next week.

:36:30.:36:33.

Rangers' lunchtime win in Perth yesterday took them back to the top

:36:33.:36:36.

of the SPL. From 3pm, Celtic had the chance to reclaim pole position

:36:36.:36:42.

if they could win at home to Dundee United.

:36:42.:36:48.

Eight Robbie Neilson returned after injury for Dundee United. Armstrong

:36:48.:36:58.
:36:58.:37:04.

was on the bench. Back out wide from Rankin. Good ball in. Garry

:37:04.:37:11.

Kenneth had the shot. Which produces a great shave -- a great

:37:11.:37:21.
:37:21.:37:32.

save from the goalkeeper. A couple of chances for Dundee United. Gary

:37:32.:37:40.

Hooper! It is his 16th goal of the season. Celtic ahead after 12

:37:40.:37:50.
:37:50.:37:52.

minutes. You had the feeling that was how this was going to end up.

:37:52.:37:59.

The shot curled past the goalkeeper. Peter Houston serving a touchline

:37:59.:38:09.
:38:09.:38:18.

ban. Decent ball in. Safety-first from a Garry Kenneth. Short corner.

:38:18.:38:24.

United have switched off. Victor Wanyama makes it two. His third

:38:24.:38:34.

goal for Celtic, this 20-year-old. He was completely unmarked here.

:38:34.:38:44.
:38:44.:38:50.

Two goals in four minutes. Celtic are cruising. Now Brown. Anthony

:38:50.:39:00.
:39:00.:39:02.

Stokes! Great strike. Plenty behind that one. Their goalkeeper is happy

:39:02.:39:08.

to tat that one over the top. Missed by Samaras and Kenneth. Free

:39:08.:39:14.

kick given against what could not have been much more than and nudge

:39:14.:39:24.
:39:24.:39:24.

from Dylan. On stalks. -- on Anthony Stokes. Early second half

:39:24.:39:32.

chance for Charlie Mulgrew. It is fumbled by the United keeper. That

:39:32.:39:42.
:39:42.:39:48.

did not look too difficult. Uncertain hands. Samaras. Great run

:39:48.:39:58.
:39:58.:39:58.

from Samaras. I could hit as well. Beaten away by the goalkeeper. A

:39:58.:40:01.

fierce straight from Samaras as Celtic looked to extend their

:40:01.:40:07.

advantage.And is conscious that his team needs another goal to make

:40:07.:40:17.
:40:17.:40:23.

things safe. -- Neil Lennon is conscious. Great hit from 30 yards.

:40:23.:40:30.

A lot of movement on this away from Fraser Forster. Clipping the inside

:40:30.:40:40.
:40:40.:40:43.

of the post. The complexion of the game changes. 2-1. Adam Matthews.

:40:43.:40:49.

Set off on our run. This looks really promising. Back for Brown!

:40:49.:40:55.

Anthony Stokes got in his way. The skipper is furious. This was a

:40:55.:41:05.
:41:05.:41:09.

chance. All Celtic players collided. Down goes Matthews. That gives Paul

:41:09.:41:15.

Dixon a chance to get the Seine for Jon Daly! What a chance to make it

:41:15.:41:25.
:41:25.:41:27.

2-2. Jon Daly must surely feel he should have scored here. What an

:41:27.:41:36.

opportunity to square things up. Ki Sung-Yeung. Four Matthews. There is

:41:36.:41:44.

Samaras! That could have tied things up. The diving header from

:41:44.:41:47.

Samaras. Which he could only direct Samaras. Which he could only direct

:41:47.:41:53.

straight at the goalkeeper. Celtic are top of the league. Did

:41:53.:41:56.

you look like the best squad in Scotland at the moment? At this

:41:56.:42:02.

moment, I think they deserve the position where they are. I think it

:42:02.:42:08.

is the fault of Rangers because is the fault of Rangers because

:42:08.:42:10.

they make lots of mistakes over the last few weeks. They have lost a

:42:10.:42:15.

lot of points. Celtic are playing very well. I think they deserve

:42:15.:42:22.

what they have at this moment. you like Victor Wanyama? Fantastic

:42:22.:42:32.
:42:32.:42:32.

player. Only 20 years old. I think Celtic will win a lot of money with

:42:32.:42:37.

this young player. I guess everyone would like to find a player like

:42:37.:42:42.

this who is on the 20 years old. He is so strong. He does not play like

:42:42.:42:47.

he is 20 years old. He seems to be more mature by six years are

:42:47.:42:54.

something. He seems to have that experience. With all the power that

:42:54.:43:00.

he has, I believe Celtic has a very good player for the moment and a

:43:00.:43:06.

very good deal. Have you enjoyed your five months in Scottish

:43:06.:43:15.

football? Does it feel like five years? Absolutely. People make our

:43:15.:43:21.

problems. But we're fighting for that. I never have an easy job, so

:43:21.:43:28.

we fight. It is easy to quit and took to go home. Doing that, for me,

:43:28.:43:34.

that is for cowards. People in Edinburgh make my life very happy.

:43:34.:43:44.

We Portuguese people are always proud because we received people in

:43:44.:43:49.

our country very well. But after say the same for Scottish people. I

:43:49.:43:54.

feel very comfortable in Edinburgh. I have a lot of support. The Hearts

:43:55.:44:02.

fans are fantastic. Always behind us. I believe there will be at

:44:02.:44:05.

least 2,000 people there in Inverness supporting us. We

:44:06.:44:11.

appreciate that a lot. In a moment like this was all the troubles that

:44:11.:44:15.

we're living, all those problems, the support of our fans is so

:44:15.:44:22.

important for us. All people who work around me in that club and not

:44:22.:44:27.

even the players, but those whose names you don't even know, they

:44:27.:44:37.

make my life easier and I am very happy with that. I can say that

:44:37.:44:47.
:44:47.:45:08.

five months for me does not feel We will have all that action for

:45:08.:45:11.

you next Sunday night at 10:45pm on BBC One. There are SPL highlights

:45:11.:45:16.
