It is all about 45 minutes. All the Dodds and Jim Macintyre are with me.

:00:35.:00:45.
:00:45.:01:01.

Touchdown. He may have taken a deflection. That was brilliant.

:01:01.:01:11.
:01:11.:01:15.

That is a penalty. Celtic could not afford a repeat of that against an

Inverness team that scored six goalkeeper a lot harder than that.

:02:24.:02:34.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

Neil Lennon would love to be indicates the use of an elbow. He

:03:38.:03:45.

saw an elbow, but I don't think anyone else in the Crown did.

:03:45.:03:51.

Samaras when down holding his face. The referee could not get the red

:03:51.:04:01.
:04:01.:04:01.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:04:01.:05:18.

Anthony Stokes and how much did he finishing! That must be job done

:05:18.:05:27.

this time. A double their from Stokes. He has got Celtic the wind

aback about the referee. Is he optic it? I want Stevie O'Reilly to

:06:48.:06:53.

get better. I am looking at in consistently over the last 18

:06:53.:06:57.

months and I just feel as if he referees in the wrong style. What I

:06:57.:07:02.

mean by that is that he brushes decisions. There are lots of red

:07:02.:07:11.

and yellow cards. He is very officious sometimes. Looking at it,

:07:11.:07:20.

the arm is our, but he has got it wrong. The thing is, he gets

:07:20.:07:26.

upgraded games and there was a high one. He is getting too many of them.

:07:26.:07:30.

Stevie O'Reilly should be doing a couple of Low were games to make

:07:30.:07:33.

sure he is doing his job properly because right now, he certainly

:07:33.:07:38.

isn't. I am sure Inverness will appeal that and you can imagine it

:07:39.:07:43.

will be rescinded and will become a yellow card, but that does not

:07:43.:07:47.

chase the game? You cannot be played the match and you don't know

:07:47.:07:51.

what would have happened. Inverness were very well in it when he was

:07:51.:07:56.

sent off. It was even at that stage and it has changed the face of the

:07:57.:08:03.

game. I'd like to think that the appeals committee will overturn it.

:08:03.:08:06.

That was the third red card of the season and when you look back at

:08:07.:08:16.
:08:17.:08:19.

the other two, its the situation of was it the player or the ball? Was

:08:19.:08:25.

this an obvious goalscoring opportunity go? Three red cards for

:08:25.:08:34.

Inverness this season - when any event justified? I think it is a

:08:34.:08:44.

coincidence. That is why I did the column a few weeks ago. There was

:08:44.:08:50.

no obvious goalscoring chance. I was at the game where Naismith was

:08:50.:09:00.
:09:00.:09:01.

brought down by Tokely. What happened yesterday as well, to be

:09:01.:09:08.

honest, there is a case. It is not a conspiracy, it's just coincidence.

:09:08.:09:17.

They had been unlucky. -- they have been unlucky. Celtic might have won

:09:17.:09:23.

the game anyway, even against 11 players. It was a match they had to

:09:23.:09:33.
:09:33.:09:36.

win. You must have appreciated it. Yes. Stokes was in the right place

:09:36.:09:44.

at the right time. He was sharp all afternoon. There is no doubt he is

:09:44.:09:49.

a goalscorer. If you see some of the course he has scored this

:09:49.:09:57.

season, they are fantastic. But is he better than Kris Boyd? I'm not

:09:57.:10:05.

sure. Neil Lennon left him out and I don't know why. But Stokes is a

:10:05.:10:10.

natural. He has the goalscoring instincts, the same way Kris Boyd

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

has. His game has changed for the better. Gin, you go to Celtic Park

:10:24.:10:30.

on Wednesday night. How do trouble them and how do you can say then?

:10:30.:10:40.
:10:40.:10:45.

First of all, we have to make sure we can beat. Union -- you need

:10:45.:10:52.

everybody attic. We need to keep our concentration. -- everybody at

:10:53.:10:59.

it. Mother will have to get maximum points to hold on to a cheap share

:10:59.:11:08.

of the SPL second spot. -- to a share of the SPL second

:11:08.:11:18.
:11:18.:11:18.

spot. Mother hell were right at home. An early free kick gave the

:11:18.:11:28.
:11:28.:11:50.

Motherwell after that 2-1 defeat at Celtic. Neilson with the cross and

:11:50.:11:56.

it was headed home. They equalised just four minutes after going

:11:56.:12:05.

behind. The former Blackpool striker Vernon got his 5th goal for

:12:05.:12:15.
:12:15.:12:30.

the season. And the second half, McArdle slung in a good try. Omar

:12:30.:12:40.
:12:40.:12:42.

Daley scored in the 53rd minute. The Motherwell fans go did former

:12:42.:12:52.
:12:52.:12:56.

boss Craig Brown throughout. -- goaded. Mother will now have six

:12:56.:13:06.
:13:06.:13:10.

wins from their last SPL away Motherwell have lost only once in

:13:10.:13:17.

the SPL. Can they maintain it? they can keep everybody fit, they

:13:17.:13:26.

have got a good chance. This what needs to be fit to maintain the

:13:26.:13:31.

challenges that they face. They have got quality players. They are

:13:31.:13:38.

always a threat. It seems almost unnoticed that Stuart McCall is

:13:38.:13:44.

deepening beat Scott. Hughes is there on a short-term deal and also

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:13:55.

at Omar Daley. He keeps finding them. He says it won't last and

:13:55.:14:01.

he's always played it down. Their record is second to none. Daley

:14:01.:14:06.

scoring that goal was brilliant. We know what Hughes is capable of as

:14:06.:14:16.
:14:16.:14:20.

well. The squad is really coming together. The pressure is on.

:14:20.:14:24.

Dunfermline went into their international break with their

:14:24.:14:34.
:14:34.:14:34.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:14:34.:15:19.

making his first serious save against his old team. That was no

:15:19.:15:29.
:15:29.:15:33.

claim, it came off Barnes. -- McLean. That was unconventional. A

:15:33.:15:43.
:15:43.:15:50.

glorious scramble. St Mirren are screaming for a penalty. The shot

:15:50.:15:58.

was deflected. MacGowan with the shot at goal. It is touched away

:15:58.:16:03.

again by the Dunfermline keeper who is having a very busy first half.

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

This may not have been going in but he felt he had to make the save. TV

:16:16.:16:22.

has it. A chance to create something there. Hasselbaink to

:16:22.:16:32.
:16:32.:16:35.

acclaim. St Mirren have what they so richly deserve after 20 minutes.

:16:35.:16:45.
:16:45.:16:54.

-- McLean. Nigel Hasselbaink drew Galata of his line. -- off. Lovely

:16:54.:17:04.
:17:04.:17:07.

football. Hassell bank's cross. Foiled by Gallagher. This should

:17:08.:17:17.

have been their second goal. I great delivery. A pretty miraculous

:17:17.:17:27.
:17:27.:17:27.

save that. Lennon would laugh at St Mirren's supremacy to be further

:17:27.:17:37.
:17:37.:17:49.

rewarded. -- would love. We are in stoppage time. Thomson. Hasselbaink.

:17:49.:17:55.

He created the first and scored the second. That was left virtually the

:17:55.:18:03.

last kick of the first 45 minutes. It was a blunder by a skipper

:18:03.:18:13.
:18:13.:18:29.

post and then! Dunfermline are back in the game. The keeper tried to

:18:29.:18:33.

prevent that crossing the line, it was difficult to see whether it had

:18:34.:18:43.
:18:44.:18:45.

gone in already, it is 2-1. This man is a constant thorn in the

:18:45.:18:55.
:18:55.:19:03.

flesh of the Dunfermline defence. Another reflex stop for the

:19:03.:19:13.
:19:13.:19:17.

goalkeeper. Thomson threw himself at it. It was almost an own goal.

:19:17.:19:27.
:19:27.:19:28.

Dunfermline have not given up yet. Cardle with a fierce shot. Sampson

:19:28.:19:35.

gets his gloves behind it. St Mirren hold on. It was a great

:19:35.:19:45.
:19:45.:19:49.

When you look back on their two holes yesterday, from a defensive

:19:49.:19:54.

point of view from Dunfermline, presumably you are not very happy.

:19:54.:20:04.
:20:04.:20:10.

That's right. St Merryn really punish us. -- St Mirren. That is a

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

poor goal from our point of view. McLean Was having a great game for

:20:25.:20:34.

them. I guess the worst one was just before half-time. Yes, I think

:20:34.:20:44.
:20:44.:20:46.

so. Again we were punished. They do play some lovely stuff, don't they?

:20:46.:20:53.

They do, they do what Lennon wants them to do. They have started

:20:53.:20:58.

mixing things up, sometimes they take chances, I think what has

:20:58.:21:05.

helped them is that they have mixed it up, played and gone long in the

:21:05.:21:10.

last couple of weeks. It is not hard to see where Dunfermline have

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

gone wrong. We can look at this chart which shows goals for and

:21:21.:21:26.

goals against. We have given ourselves too much to-do in a

:21:26.:21:31.

number of the Games this year. What I will say about the boys is that

:21:31.:21:38.

they showed a lot of character in the second half. I think they gave

:21:38.:21:48.
:21:48.:21:49.

their opponents a bit of a fright. Dunfermline's 3 SPL wins have been

:21:49.:21:57.

away from home. Yes. When day's score at they will win games. If

:21:57.:22:02.

they can keep a clean sheet and be compact which they are capable of

:22:02.:22:07.

doing, trying to keep things a little bit tighter, they want to

:22:07.:22:12.

have a little bit of flair in the attack but when they get the weds

:22:12.:22:22.
:22:22.:22:24.

and the crosses in the box they can score goals. -- width. The North

:22:24.:22:31.

Stand at East End Park has been shut down to save money on police

:22:31.:22:38.

and stewarding, is that worrying from the playing side of things?

:22:38.:22:45.

do not think it is just done Furman alone. If you look across Scottish

:22:45.:22:49.

Football League teams are really struggling for revenue. There are a

:22:49.:22:53.

few fans who are really unhappy because they have sat there for a

:22:53.:22:59.

long, long time but we have to look forward. It doesn't sound like you

:22:59.:23:04.

will be spending a lot of money on new players before the transfer

:23:04.:23:14.
:23:14.:23:15.

window closes in January? I do not think so! And a club that is up for

:23:15.:23:25.
:23:25.:23:29.

sale along with some of its top players. Hearts verses Dundee

:23:29.:23:39.
:23:39.:24:03.

spectacular this year so far. -- be a weak form. -- the away form.

:24:03.:24:13.
:24:13.:24:14.

Harks making all the early running. -- Hearts. Robertson is the air,

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

what a fine goal! That was greeted from absolutely nothing. Daly had

:24:25.:24:35.
:24:35.:24:35.

nothing but Roberts and to aim at. That diving header was exquisite. -

:24:35.:24:45.
:24:45.:24:48.

- Robertson. The des Skacel and an own goal. It is going to be chopped

:24:48.:24:58.
:24:58.:25:06.

off! He was offside. That was very, very close. Stephen is losing out.

:25:06.:25:13.

Hearts can come forward once more. Here is my gallant. That might find

:25:13.:25:21.

its way into the back of the net. - - MacGowan. That almost worked out

:25:21.:25:29.

nicely for him. Good goalkeeping. Sergio confined to the stance for a

:25:29.:25:39.
:25:39.:25:46.

couple of weeks. -- stands. Here is Skacel again. The chance is not

:25:46.:25:53.

entirely gone just yet. Perhaps Skacel could have played this

:25:53.:26:00.

earlier to Templeton. It was a decent shot. Templecombe with ahead

:26:00.:26:10.
:26:10.:26:13.

the touch on the rebound. -- Templeton. Again it is really quick

:26:13.:26:22.

feet from this man. Again it is round to Robertson. Skacel in close

:26:22.:26:32.

proximity. He merely has looked like their best opportunity of an

:26:32.:26:42.
:26:42.:26:43.

all this afternoon. -- he really has. Rankin could not get hold of

:26:43.:26:53.
:26:53.:26:54.

it as he would have liked. The two former Kilmarnock men are linking

:26:54.:27:04.
:27:04.:27:05.

up. One way and then the other. Sutton did not catch that. It is

:27:05.:27:10.

his first start since August, he will be desperate to make an impact.

:27:10.:27:18.

He did not get hold of that at all. Skacel, and a nice touch for

:27:18.:27:28.
:27:28.:27:35.

Stevenson. Sutton is climbing, he felt he was being held down. His

:27:35.:27:42.

arm was being held. United are looking for a killer second. Surely

:27:42.:27:49.

that would wrap up the points. Daily on the rebound. Again that is

:27:49.:27:59.
:27:59.:28:01.

going to be chopped off. The assistant just about gets that one

:28:01.:28:11.
:28:11.:28:14.

If you are only going to score once every three years you have to make

:28:14.:28:22.

it a belter. That is what Robertson has done. It was his desire to get

:28:22.:28:29.

into the box. It was a fabulous delivery from John Daly. It was a

:28:29.:28:35.

superb finish. You talk about the desire but you have to be fit and

:28:35.:28:44.

you have to want to get there. The ball has to be pinpointed. To

:28:44.:28:48.

execute the header and then your neck to put it in that corner I

:28:49.:28:58.
:28:59.:29:04.

think that is an unbelievable goal. Fantastic. I think both teams had a

:29:05.:29:14.
:29:15.:29:19.

goal chalked off which it looked on side to me. No harm done. This man

:29:19.:29:28.

was banned from detectable area. We have seen a phone calls being made

:29:28.:29:38.
:29:38.:29:40.

on the mobile but they are not getting the signal. I know you are

:29:40.:29:45.

seeing what is the use of banning them when they can still put orders

:29:45.:29:52.

across. He is shouting down. They are going to have to make a ruling

:29:52.:30:02.
:30:02.:30:04.

on whether they can contact them or You have had a touchline ban this

:30:04.:30:14.
:30:14.:30:16.

season. How has it affected you? Quite a lot. It is very frustrating.

:30:16.:30:25.

Big changes coming at Hearts. The club is up for sale answer are some

:30:25.:30:35.
:30:35.:30:36.

of the players. This is what Hearts had to say about it. It is going to

:30:36.:30:44.

be all change. How do you see? Desperate days ahead. They realise

:30:45.:30:49.

they are in trouble, financially. For what they wanted to achieve in

:30:49.:30:53.

Scottish football, they were paying out too much money. I think

:30:53.:30:59.

Vladimir Romanov realises he cannot run his business like that.

:30:59.:31:02.

Hibs were at home to Kilmarnock yesterday and stand-in manager

:31:02.:31:05.

Billy Brown was looking to bolster his claims to get the job on a

:31:05.:31:15.
:31:15.:31:30.

full-time basis. Here's how it went half. Pascali fired home of the

:31:30.:31:40.
:31:40.:31:44.

rebound. 1-0 down at half-time. At half timed Billy Brown make some

:31:44.:31:54.
:31:54.:32:16.

Kilmarnock. The header was comfortably saved. Dean Shiels was

:32:16.:32:22.

also causing problems for his old club. Kelly kept the pressure on

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

and more often than not, it kept possession of the ball. -- HET.

:32:33.:32:38.

Frustration for Kilmarnock's manager. No free kick apart from an

:32:38.:32:48.

obvious foul. A similar situation afterwards further blackened his

:32:48.:32:55.

loop towards the referee Stephen Finney. This wasn't the greatest

:32:55.:33:03.

game. Fulmar not need to turn more of these draws into wins, but the

:33:03.:33:08.

big question remains - was this result enough to earn Billy Brown

:33:08.:33:18.
:33:18.:33:24.

Will it be Billy Brown? He has got a wealth of experience and I think

:33:24.:33:32.

he will do a brilliant job. He is a proper football man. Clearly, he is

:33:32.:33:37.

being besieged by autograph hunters. That is sending out a message. Well,

:33:37.:33:43.

three of them anyway and!. He would have wanted to win the game. Let's

:33:43.:33:48.

cut to the chase. It would have been better for him if he had. They

:33:48.:33:58.
:33:58.:33:59.

had a poor first half. At least he changed things and they got a draw.

:33:59.:34:03.

It wasn't a totally bad result. It depends on what happens in the

:34:03.:34:09.

coming weeks. The bookies don't often get it wrong and they have

:34:09.:34:19.
:34:19.:34:28.

packed Finland as odds-on favourite. -- Pat Finland. He has done well in

:34:28.:34:34.

Ireland. He was coveted by Dundee United a couple of years ago, but

:34:34.:34:39.

it did not work out. I think Billy Brown is a good candidate for that

:34:39.:34:49.
:34:49.:34:54.

job and I hope he get it. -- get it. The first match for Steve Lomas as

:34:54.:34:57.

St Johnstone manager shaped up as a tough one. A trip to Ibrox where

:34:58.:35:07.
:35:08.:35:22.

the Perth team haven't won a league played so Johnston this time. -- St

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

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:35:32.:37:16.

match this season. They are pushing as no Kiat sends it back in. That

:37:17.:37:26.
:37:27.:37:31.

was a great ball. -- Mackay. Saints continuing to travel well. They

:37:31.:37:41.
:37:41.:37:41.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:37:41.:40:09.

the shot. - Matt Murray Davidson. A I don't think dropping a couple of

:40:09.:40:17.

points constitutes a crisis, but the momentum could be last. Yes.

:40:17.:40:23.

They still have a fantastic record overall, but you need to be certain

:40:23.:40:33.
:40:33.:40:36.

with home games. There is a new manager at St Johnstone. It wasn't

:40:36.:40:44.

just all about Rangers dominating. Was this a model for what you would

:40:44.:40:51.

like to do at Celtic Park on Wednesday night? You have to be

:40:51.:40:56.

solid against the Old Firm. As you can see here, they had a real

:40:56.:41:01.

threat on the counter attack and had some good chances. There were a

:41:01.:41:11.
:41:11.:41:19.

couple of good saves by McGregor. McGregor has made a few mistakes.

:41:19.:41:29.
:41:29.:41:32.

However, he knows how to get points. The acquisition of Steve Lomas,

:41:32.:41:41.

fantastic playing career. He has been on the lower rungs of the

:41:41.:41:44.

latter would be youth teams as well. Does he sound like the right man

:41:45.:41:54.
:41:55.:41:55.

for the job? Yes. He has a desire to get into coaching. He looks

:41:55.:42:05.
:42:05.:42:09.

hungry and motivated. However, that scarp looks a little bit tight!

:42:09.:42:18.

Once he gets home and sees that, he won't be wearing it again! That

:42:18.:42:24.

staff could tighten, depending on how results go! Is it a case for

:42:24.:42:34.
:42:34.:42:35.

Steve Lomas that if it's not broke, don't try to fix it? It is a good
