Yes, good afternoon, and welcome to the results show.

:00:15.:00:19.

After the darts, the oche belongs to us, till 5:20 anyway.

:00:20.:00:23.

That's 50 minutes of scores, reports, results and more

:00:24.:00:28.

in the company of Steven Thompson, and Michael Grant of the Times.

:00:29.:00:31.

Now we can welcome our team of reporters around

:00:32.:00:34.

the nation with the headlines from today's big matches.

:00:35.:00:40.

We will start with Chris McLaughlin, who is watching champions Celtic at

:00:41.:00:48.

all to Kilmarnock. Good afternoon. Celtic are leading, 5-1 but they had

:00:49.:00:52.

to battle back from a first-half shock. An incredible long range

:00:53.:00:56.

effort from Souleymane Coulibaly pic Kilmarnock ahead against the run of

:00:57.:01:00.

play. Moussa Dembele scored twice in two minutes, James Forrest and Leigh

:01:01.:01:03.

play. Moussa Dembele scored twice in Griffiths on target in the second

:01:04.:01:06.

half, and Scott Sinclair has made it five from the spot. Let's find out

:01:07.:01:12.

how hard is fading in second place, against Ross County. It is goalless

:01:13.:01:21.

at Tynecastle. Not for the lack of trying. Scott Fox has been in

:01:22.:01:23.

outstanding form for Ross County between the sticks. He has made

:01:24.:01:25.

numerous saves. One from Tony Watt lead goal bound until he turned it

:01:26.:01:30.

around the post. Andrew Davies has gone close for Ross County but so

:01:31.:01:36.

far it is 0-0. Second bottom Inverness at home to Dundee. Our man

:01:37.:01:40.

in the Highlands is Martin Dowden. They will not be second bottom for

:01:41.:01:46.

long. It is 3-0. The home side cruising, two early goals. The first

:01:47.:01:51.

great header from Lonsana Doumbouya. Greg Tansey converted a penalty

:01:52.:01:55.

after Julen Extabeguran barged Billy King in the box. Liam Polworth

:01:56.:02:06.

Kamlish slotted home a third goal. A long way back for Dundee.

:02:07.:02:09.

Let's find out how Partick Thistle are feeling at home to Motherwell.

:02:10.:02:12.

They are feeling well. The home side are leading, through Chris Erskine's

:02:13.:02:16.

goal. It is a narrow advantage but one that Partick Thistle deserve.

:02:17.:02:22.

The top two are to two to win the Championship. Queen Of The South at

:02:23.:02:25.

home to Hibernian. Chris McKenzie is watching. This top

:02:26.:02:30.

of the table class has been pacey, full of industry but lacking in goal

:02:31.:02:35.

might excitement. Driving rain is sweeping across Palmerston Park.

:02:36.:02:41.

Lewis Stevenson twice saw yellow cards so Hibernian are playing with

:02:42.:02:46.

ten men. Lots to talk about, particularly at

:02:47.:02:49.

Celtic Park. I do not know where to start. Let's start with the

:02:50.:02:55.

goalkeeping situation. An unusual change at half-time. Very

:02:56.:03:00.

interesting that Dorus de Vries has come off at half-time, replaced by

:03:01.:03:05.

Craig Gordon. We do not know whether there has been an injury from de

:03:06.:03:10.

Vries. If there has not, it is embarrassing. There are issues

:03:11.:03:14.

around the goalkeepers. De Vries has conceded 12 goals in five

:03:15.:03:18.

appearances for Celtic, including the hammering in Barcelona. He has

:03:19.:03:25.

not kept a clean sheet. He was beaten from a long way out by

:03:26.:03:27.

Souleymane Coulibaly in the first half today. It is fascinating. It is

:03:28.:03:32.

strange. You never see a goalkeeper getting whipped at half-time. If

:03:33.:03:37.

there is an injury, it makes sense, otherwise there is an issue. I know

:03:38.:03:44.

he was at fault for the goal, but that is a bit severe, whipping him.

:03:45.:03:49.

Leigh Griffiths has come back after being out injured. Moussa Dembele

:03:50.:03:52.

has done ever so well. Do you keep him out of the team and bring in

:03:53.:03:58.

Leigh Griffiths? Decisions for Celtic. Hearts, 0-0 at home to Ross

:03:59.:04:03.

County. Last week, Hearts bombarded the St Johnstone goal and did not

:04:04.:04:09.

score. A similar story. It seems to be. Very competitive at Tynecastle.

:04:10.:04:16.

Ross County are very much in the game. Hearts have been going

:04:17.:04:19.

Ross County are very much in the well until last week. I do not think

:04:20.:04:21.

they felt it was too big a blow. The performance against St Johnstone was

:04:22.:04:27.

good. If they lose this one today, our drop points, that will be five

:04:28.:04:33.

points dropped out of six. Hearts have been on top, Nicholson hit the

:04:34.:04:38.

bar with a shot where he should have scored. Inverness are well on top.

:04:39.:04:42.

We have been watching that one coming in. They have dominated the

:04:43.:04:47.

game. They probably should have had a man sent off. It will be

:04:48.:04:53.

interesting to watch. Lonsana Doumbouya elbowed an opponent in

:04:54.:04:56.

interesting to watch. Lonsana first half. He was off with a bloody

:04:57.:05:00.

nose. In the second half, he elbowed again and he got a yellow card. He

:05:01.:05:05.

was taken off the pitch but he should have been. Good news for

:05:06.:05:09.

Partick Thistle, on course for what could be their first victory since

:05:10.:05:14.

the opening day of the season. They started the season well. Good

:05:15.:05:15.

results in the cup. They started started the season well. Good

:05:16.:05:22.

league season well, then they hit a run of defeats. Suddenly they are

:05:23.:05:25.

bottom and you think, have they taken their eyes off of this? They

:05:26.:05:30.

are playing well but not scoring? That has been the issue for awhile.

:05:31.:05:35.

The results of Motherwell have not been great other than the derby last

:05:36.:05:40.

week. They have not created much today, Motherwell. The goal came

:05:41.:05:45.

from a howler from Stevie Hammell. It was a square pass across the back

:05:46.:05:49.

four and it was intercepted by Chris Erskine.

:05:50.:06:01.

Let's go around the grounds again. We will start at Celtic Park. I was

:06:02.:06:06.

going to say I cannot remember seeing more one-sided game. But I

:06:07.:06:10.

was in Barcelona a couple of ago. In stark contrast, Celtic have been in

:06:11.:06:11.

control. The first half-hour, shots from Scott Brown, Moussa Dembele,

:06:12.:06:13.

thinker, all over the bar. Then Souleymane Coulibaly picked up the

:06:14.:06:17.

ball, cut inside and unleashed is looping, long-range effort that

:06:18.:06:19.

ball, cut inside and unleashed is dipped under the buyer at the last

:06:20.:06:23.

second. What is the Dutchman to blame? Did will be debated for some

:06:24.:06:28.

time. He was replaced at half-time by Craig Gordon. We will speak to

:06:29.:06:32.

Brendan Rodgers about that shortly after the game. At that, Moussa

:06:33.:06:39.

Dembele scored twice in two minutes, then James Forrest scored. Leigh

:06:40.:06:42.

Griffiths came on and scored a header a few minutes after making

:06:43.:06:47.

his entry into the game. Moussa Dembele starting ahead of Leigh

:06:48.:06:49.

Griffiths this afternoon despite Leigh Griffiths being fed. Then

:06:50.:06:53.

Scott Sinclair from the penalty spot. He was upended and he scored

:06:54.:06:59.

his sixth league goal in a row. Celtic in complete control, what a

:07:00.:07:02.

goal from Souleymane Coulibaly. It looks like the perfect preparation

:07:03.:07:06.

for Celtic ahead of the Champions League visit of Manchester City on

:07:07.:07:12.

Wednesday. No scoring at Tynecastle but I sure

:07:13.:07:14.

John Barnes will have lots to say about the match.

:07:15.:07:19.

0-0. Hearts with so much pressure, particularly in the first half.

:07:20.:07:22.

Scott Fox was the man who kept them out with a handful of great saves.

:07:23.:07:27.

One in particular from Tony Watt after Hearts from the counterattack.

:07:28.:07:32.

Up the other end, Conor Sammon with the past two Tony Watt and a shot

:07:33.:07:37.

from 16 yards superbly tipped over by the Ross County goalkeeper. He

:07:38.:07:43.

had several other good stops during that period. One from Rossi, one

:07:44.:07:46.

from Paterson and another from Conor Sammon. County thought they had

:07:47.:07:53.

taken the lead in the 19th minute. It was a free kick from Martin

:07:54.:07:58.

Woods, wide on the right. Callum Paterson tried to clear and

:07:59.:08:01.

Woods, wide on the right. Callum flicked it on to the head of Andrew

:08:02.:08:04.

Davies who directed the goal bone. It hit the crossbar and bounced

:08:05.:08:07.

down. The county players claimed it was across the line but the referee

:08:08.:08:13.

said no. Hearts went up the other end and almost scored. Tony Watt is

:08:14.:08:20.

trying his luck from a free kick. With players being booked, we could

:08:21.:08:23.

end up with one of these sides been reduced to ten men. Tony Watt has

:08:24.:08:26.

had a few chances. His free kick went over the

:08:27.:08:31.

crossbar. More from Martin Dowden. Inverness against Dundee.

:08:32.:08:38.

It is still 3-0. You think Inverness may be able to get a fourth goal.

:08:39.:08:43.

Dundee still trying to get forward, trying to get something. Inverness

:08:44.:08:48.

going close again, Ross Draper, well saved by Scott Bain after Amelia in

:08:49.:08:53.

the box. Steven Thompson raised a point about Lonsana Doumbouya. He

:08:54.:08:57.

might have had a red card. He was questionable in his challenges early

:08:58.:09:03.

on. He was eventually hooked. This time Fischer has been denied by

:09:04.:09:08.

Scott Bain. There is perhaps a fourth for Inverness.

:09:09.:09:10.

They will certainly get three points. Let's go to Richard Wilson,

:09:11.:09:15.

Partick Thistle, the bottom club against Motherwell.

:09:16.:09:19.

It remains 1-0 Partick Thistle. Chris Erskine's goal in the first

:09:20.:09:25.

half. It was a mistake by Steven Hammell. Chris Erskine ran onto the

:09:26.:09:29.

loose pass back and tucked the ball away. Ade Azeez has had three

:09:30.:09:34.

chances for Partick Thistle. It should be more comfortable for them.

:09:35.:09:40.

He has been no one-on-one with the goalkeeper twice. He put the chances

:09:41.:09:45.

wide. Motherwell are stepping up the pressure. Scott McDonald has had a

:09:46.:09:49.

goal disallowed. This is the third corner in a row that has been headed

:09:50.:09:55.

over. If Partick Thistle won the points

:09:56.:09:58.

they will have to see this out defensively. They are leading.

:09:59.:10:00.

Tynecastle and news of an incident of note.

:10:01.:10:04.

I was talking about meaty tackles and a second yellow card for Ian

:10:05.:10:12.

McShane. The player in the challenge was caught late by the Ross County

:10:13.:10:16.

McShane. The player in the challenge midfielder. Ross County are down to

:10:17.:10:18.

ten men with about six minutes left to play.

:10:19.:10:22.

It is still goalless. Hibs are down to ten men in the big match at the

:10:23.:10:27.

top of the Championship. They are away to Queen Of The South.

:10:28.:10:31.

Let's get more details. It has been a terrible afternoon for football,

:10:32.:10:36.

driving rain at Palmerston Park. It has not dampened the spirits, lots

:10:37.:10:42.

of pace and industry but little to show in front of goal. Hibs's hopes

:10:43.:10:47.

of returning to the top of the table took a series and when Lewis

:10:48.:10:50.

Stevenson was given his marching orders. His second yellow card for a

:10:51.:10:55.

bag tackle, the first having come before the break. -- bad tackle. The

:10:56.:11:01.

underfoot conditions have not been great. It is a synthetic pitch, but

:11:02.:11:06.

underfoot conditions have not been it is slightly. Dale Hilson came

:11:07.:11:09.

close for Queen Of The South. The goalkeeper in the visiting goal made

:11:10.:11:16.

a great start. Lee Robson made a magnificent save from John McGinn

:11:17.:11:18.

after a fine strike from 25 yards. magnificent save from John McGinn

:11:19.:11:21.

These two sides are battling for the top of the Championship table.

:11:22.:11:26.

Back to the Premiership and Inverness. There has been a goal in

:11:27.:11:33.

that game. A glimmer of hope for Dundee. You

:11:34.:11:36.

suspect it is too little, too late. A fantastic finish from Nicky Law. A

:11:37.:11:40.

free kick from roughly 20 yards out. A left foot shot away from Fon

:11:41.:11:46.

Williams. 3-1. Paul Hartley has been

:11:47.:11:49.

complaining about negativity in the media, including social media. Can

:11:50.:11:53.

you put a positive spin on what you're seeing today? That was a good

:11:54.:11:57.

free kick. Well played. You can certainly give him that one. The

:11:58.:12:01.

results have been bad for Dundee. They have not won a league game

:12:02.:12:10.

since the opening day of the season. Paul Hartley nose. He was critical

:12:11.:12:12.

last season when the team was criticised, his defending was

:12:13.:12:18.

criticised. We have seen Brendan Rodgers being touchy about it, Mark

:12:19.:12:23.

Warburton. Think about the progress that Dundee have made under him.

:12:24.:12:27.

Does it not just highlight the fact even more? It brings more

:12:28.:12:32.

negativity, bringing it up. They have struggled against Inverness.

:12:33.:12:33.

They have not beaten them since have struggled against Inverness.

:12:34.:12:37.

2009. They have never been victorious in Inverness. If you

:12:38.:12:45.

start winning games, you do not get criticised. It is as simple as that.

:12:46.:12:50.

Kilmarnock have not won at Celtic Park. That will not change today.

:12:51.:12:55.

There is another goal. The Kilmarnock players are looking

:12:56.:12:59.

at the scoreboard, praying for the game to end. Tom Rogic picked the

:13:00.:13:03.

ball at eight yards out and let the ball, La Paz McDonald into the back

:13:04.:13:11.

of the net. Four minutes remaining. 6-1. There has been a goal in the

:13:12.:13:15.

match between Partick Thistle and Motherwell.

:13:16.:13:18.

It is an equaliser for Motherwell. Scott McDonald nodding the ball in

:13:19.:13:24.

at the back post. The cross from the fullback, Richard Tait. Partick

:13:25.:13:27.

Thistle have had to defend. They have missed so many chances in the

:13:28.:13:30.

second half and they are Binnie get second half and they are Binnie get

:13:31.:13:34.

-- they are beginning to regret them.

:13:35.:13:37.

Scott McDonald, reliable, on the scoresheet. Motherwell have not been

:13:38.:13:46.

in the game much. Partick Thistle have missed a number of chances, a

:13:47.:13:47.

couple of one-on-one chances. They will be so disappointed they could

:13:48.:13:49.

not hang on for the last few minutes. Motherwell had put pressure

:13:50.:13:54.

on Partick Thistle but had not created anything concrete.

:13:55.:13:58.

on Partick Thistle but had not Pre-match, Mark McGhee had said that

:13:59.:14:00.

both teams are very similar. It looks like he was accurate. The

:14:01.:14:06.

point he was making is that for most of the Premier League, the clubs are

:14:07.:14:11.

fishing in the same market. They are skating the same players. They have

:14:12.:14:15.

compatible budgets until you take away the top two, three. He is quite

:14:16.:14:23.

right. You can see -- you can see from the results, how predictable it

:14:24.:14:28.

is. Teams go and little streaks. Celtic are leading 6-1. Kilmarnock

:14:29.:14:35.

did well against Celtic last season. Today we wondered if Celtic would go

:14:36.:14:38.

with Moussa Dembele Hadley grippers upfront. , and it went with two

:14:39.:14:41.

upfront. Once Celtic got on top, especially

:14:42.:14:53.

in the second half they dominated. It is a really one-sided game. 6-1

:14:54.:15:02.

is embarrassing. And 0-0 between Queen of the South

:15:03.:15:06.

and Hibs. It keeps them at the top of the table? Yes, and it looks like

:15:07.:15:15.

ray Rovers will win. Queen of the South, some of us were gill at

:15:16.:15:20.

looking at Hibs and Dundee United, not thinking that there would be a

:15:21.:15:26.

challenge sustained. But Queen of the South, they were spanked at

:15:27.:15:31.

Ibrox but they are living with Hibs today, holding them.

:15:32.:15:34.

I thought it looked like Hibs would runaway with the championship. It

:15:35.:15:38.

shows what I know. All the focus was there. How good

:15:39.:15:43.

the start that they had. In the back ground Queen of the South, they were

:15:44.:15:50.

having a better start. Steven Dobby, what a start he has

:15:51.:15:53.

had. He is too good. But they have done

:15:54.:15:58.

well to get him there. And Hibs? Down to ten men? They lost

:15:59.:16:06.

last weekend. I know that Neil Lennon... I mean he will not be

:16:07.:16:11.

happy with the cards today. He was generous towards the referee

:16:12.:16:15.

last week after changing his mind about Batley but you can't go down

:16:16.:16:21.

to ten men every week. Even with the advantages, you will be found out.

:16:22.:16:27.

And Scott Fox, his name has been mentioned in dispatches. He

:16:28.:16:33.

outstanding at Ibrox? And today as well.

:16:34.:16:40.

Two of the hardest fixtures, going to Ibrox and Tyne castle. If they

:16:41.:16:42.

hang on it will be a great achievement.

:16:43.:16:47.

It was said that if the players there keen peak, they could punish a

:16:48.:16:53.

team. Has it happened to Dundee? Or a case that Inverness have been on

:16:54.:16:57.

it and Dundee have not? They have come off the back of two good

:16:58.:17:03.

results, Inverness. They held Aberdeen and Celtic. Especially the

:17:04.:17:09.

Celtic one as they have been flying, so you get a huge lift coming from

:17:10.:17:17.

behind to draw with Celtic. I worry about Inverness, there the manager

:17:18.:17:20.

is a young guy, no management experience. This is a club that had

:17:21.:17:25.

difficulties under John Hughes, which is why he left but over the

:17:26.:17:30.

last three to four weeks it is looking like turning for them.

:17:31.:17:34.

They could leap frog Dundee, they could be in trouble? A poor series

:17:35.:17:36.

of results for Dundee. A number of could be in trouble? A poor series

:17:37.:17:40.

draws and this is back to back defeats. So work there to be done

:17:41.:17:45.

draws and this is back to back without a doubt. Well, the full-time

:17:46.:17:52.

results coming in. The first from Charlie Mann, Is Ayr

:17:53.:18:00.

in the championship? The goals came but late in the match. The two teams

:18:01.:18:06.

in good form but the goals in the last ten minutes. Falkirk both

:18:07.:18:12.

goals. David McCracken got a header but

:18:13.:18:17.

goals. Daryll Maggett got an own goal. But

:18:18.:18:20.

a good goal in 90 minutes secured the points.

:18:21.:18:22.

a good goal in 90 minutes secured Lee Miller took the ball on the

:18:23.:18:27.

six-yard line and turned the defender side past. A good victory

:18:28.:18:32.

for fall kick but will play better than this. Harsh for Ayr United.

:18:33.:18:41.

And Queen of the South, against Hibs, Bruce did it finish goaless?

:18:42.:18:47.

It did. Driving rain in the area for most of the afternoon. It maid the

:18:48.:18:52.

conditions tricky. Hibs returning to the top of the table, dealt a blow

:18:53.:18:59.

when Lewis Stevenson was sent off. Opportunities at either end. Lots of

:19:00.:19:05.

industry but ultimately, Knill was all that the game deserved. Queen of

:19:06.:19:08.

the South are top of the championship table.

:19:09.:19:13.

Goaless there. Falkirk started slowly, now on four wins in a row? I

:19:14.:19:20.

sue that Peter Houston was in the papers talking about that. I admire

:19:21.:19:28.

Houston and Falkirk. They are a well-run, well-organised club. He is

:19:29.:19:31.

an experienced coach. He will keep them up there.

:19:32.:19:36.

Full-time in the Premiership match between Celtic and Kilmarnock.

:19:37.:19:41.

Chris? And the score line tells the story. 6-1 to the home side. Celtic

:19:42.:19:48.

for the first half an hour. Wave after wave of attack. Then a moment

:19:49.:19:56.

of brigs from Coulibaly, picking up the ball 40 yards from out, cutting

:19:57.:20:03.

inside to release a long drive. Could the Dutchman have been more?

:20:04.:20:08.

Replaced by Craig Gordon at half-time, due to an injury, more

:20:09.:20:14.

from Brendan Rogers about that. And Dembele putting Celtic in control

:20:15.:20:17.

before the break. Ten for the Frenchman. In the second half, for

:20:18.:20:26.

rest, Griffiths and Sinclair and Rogic taking the other five.

:20:27.:20:33.

This ahead of the visit to Manchester City on Wednesday night.

:20:34.:20:38.

Rampant Celtic. Goals from all over the pitch. Another for Mousa

:20:39.:20:45.

Dembele? Yes, for Dembele and Sinclair.

:20:46.:20:49.

He has an incredible record. Scoring in Everleigh game. That is six isn't

:20:50.:20:57.

it? A penalty today. He will tell you that! I know what he is

:20:58.:21:01.

referring to. Let's not bring that up! But that is

:21:02.:21:06.

a common result if Celtic are playing the way that they are. They

:21:07.:21:09.

a common result if Celtic are let in the goal there, that is

:21:10.:21:14.

typical of them. Before they were averaging 3.5 goals a game. That

:21:15.:21:18.

will ill push it well up. Maybe up to four. They are scoring

:21:19.:21:24.

freely, creating chances. Interestingly, Alloa in the Cup put

:21:25.:21:29.

up resistance and Celtic struggled to break them down. But they will

:21:30.:21:35.

punish teams, especially at Celtic Park. But as Michael said they are

:21:36.:21:41.

losing goals. It is not a clean sheet.

:21:42.:21:47.

And that is the point. Then the Manchester game. Who do

:21:48.:21:56.

they start with? Well, this could be segny can't. If there is an instir,

:21:57.:22:04.

Gordon will start. And full-time against Inverness and

:22:05.:22:12.

Dundee. We join Martin Dowden. Some clinical finishings, extending

:22:13.:22:15.

Inverness' unbeaten run to four games. They are clear of the

:22:16.:22:17.

relegation Goals the second just inside

:22:18.:22:35.

box. Greg Tansy in the spot to put them two up.

:22:36.:22:40.

And McGowan threatening Inverness. They ended the contest again.

:22:41.:22:51.

They showed great composure to fire. A consolation coming from a superb

:22:52.:22:58.

Nicky Lowe free kick. The home side dominant and deserving of the

:22:59.:23:05.

points, rising up the table. Tyne castle next and the match between

:23:06.:23:09.

Hearts and Ross County is over. Let's hear from John Barnes.

:23:10.:23:14.

Goaless here. That is probably down to the agility and the reactions of

:23:15.:23:19.

the county goal keeper, Scott Fox, especially in the first half with

:23:20.:23:25.

handful of top-class saves to keep Hearts at bay. He produced a

:23:26.:23:30.

terrific stop from Tony Watt and a council of other crackers. Ross

:23:31.:23:34.

County for their trouble almost took the lead in 90 minutes, a free kick

:23:35.:23:41.

by Martin Woods, was kicked clear by Calum Paterson.

:23:42.:23:45.

Knocked on to the head of Andrew Davis. His effort hitting off the

:23:46.:23:52.

underside of the crossbar and the county players claiming that the

:23:53.:23:57.

ball went across the line. But Fox was up to the task again to

:23:58.:24:07.

deny the corner. The corner by Salmon.

:24:08.:24:14.

Andrew Davis had a header up the other end that went over the top of

:24:15.:24:19.

the crossbar for County. Then Ian McShane sent off for a second yellow

:24:20.:24:22.

card. He had had been booked McShane sent off for a second yellow

:24:23.:24:27.

minutes earlier and picked up a second for a late challenge. But

:24:28.:24:35.

County held out. Three daubs in a row for the side. Full-time now for

:24:36.:24:42.

Partick Thistle against Motherwell. Over to Richard Wilson.

:24:43.:24:48.

It was 1-1. A reflection of the Partick Thistle season. Playing well

:24:49.:24:51.

in the game but did not get the points. They dominated the opening

:24:52.:24:57.

half. Chris Erskine scored after 30 minutes. He had three chances to

:24:58.:25:02.

score again in the second half, he pulled two wide around saw the other

:25:03.:25:08.

saved. Ryan Edwards hit the post. Motherwell up the field, taking a

:25:09.:25:12.

cross for Scott McDonald. Motherwell put on the pressure in the final

:25:13.:25:19.

stages. Chris Cadden had his effort pushed well. Partick Thistle looked

:25:20.:25:25.

for a win but they had to make do a point, they are still at the bottom

:25:26.:25:28.

now. And to the championship we can here

:25:29.:25:35.

from Liam McLeod. Done deed against Morten.

:25:36.:25:39.

Dundee United needed a victory, they have won.

:25:40.:25:43.

It looks like they managed to just get it over the line. It's a double

:25:44.:25:59.

from Tony Andreu. Morton's best chance came from Aidan

:26:00.:26:05.

Nesbitt from the edge of the box. It came off the post Bell was beaten.

:26:06.:26:18.

Then Andreu entered the fray again, despite the best efforts of McKneel

:26:19.:26:22.

throwing himself to the net, the ball hit the net. The second

:26:23.:26:29.

arriving as Morton pushed but pushing the ball deep inside their

:26:30.:26:33.

half, and the keeper shotted one into the bottom of the corner to

:26:34.:26:43.

make the save. Dillon scored one at the close of

:26:44.:26:45.

the game. A poor week for them. Dillon scored one at the close of

:26:46.:26:54.

Five goals for Scott Davy to describe. He was watching the match

:26:55.:27:03.

between Raith Rovers and Dumbarton. Callaghan and Roberts got Raith

:27:04.:27:08.

Rovers on track. But Dumbarton came back from three down with nine

:27:09.:27:14.

minutes to go. They made Raith Rovers sweat for the points. Ryan

:27:15.:27:20.

Stevenson and Robert Thompson made for an uncomfortable finale.

:27:21.:27:25.

The two goals in the burst threatened to put the results beyond

:27:26.:27:33.

Dumbarton's reach. Then Robertson, with a 20 yard

:27:34.:27:40.

effort was spectacular there. Matched by Steven son in 71 minutes

:27:41.:27:46.

coming off the bench, Thomson's score 77 minutes.

:27:47.:27:56.

Buchanan sent off. They have won once in 12 games. It finished Raith

:27:57.:28:04.

Rovers, three, Dumbarton, two. Welcome for Raith Rovers. They

:28:05.:28:10.

needed that. Dumbarton are struggling, one win in 12 is not

:28:11.:28:14.

good enough. But good #230r Raith Rovers.

:28:15.:28:17.

A measure of vengeance over Morton? Rovers.

:28:18.:28:22.

It is the third in the league. It has been up and down. They are

:28:23.:28:33.

not that far off the top. Ray McKinnon was critical. He needed a

:28:34.:28:35.

response today. Looks like he got it.

:28:36.:28:40.

It is September, autumn but we bring the first full-time report from the

:28:41.:28:46.

Scottish Cup. It comes from Kenny Crawford who watched

:28:47.:28:59.

Afendance what 373, the pies have sold out. They were happy about

:29:00.:29:18.

that. The draw for the second round is on Monday. They will find out who

:29:19.:29:29.

they meet there. Beith juniors juniors, six, and Strathspey

:29:30.:29:31.

Thistle, nil. And the pies were sold out as well!

:29:32.:29:38.

Now the roundup. We commence as ever with the

:29:39.:29:44.

Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership. Let's have a look at the tables.

:29:45.:33:09.

Celtic are five points clear at the top after a commanding victory over

:33:10.:33:14.

Kilmarnock. Hearts stay second is by dropping points at home to Ross

:33:15.:33:20.

County. St Johnstone play Hamilton tomorrow. Motherwell are sitting

:33:21.:33:23.

nicely and forth. They drew with Partick Thistle. Hamilton dropped to

:33:24.:33:29.

the bottom. They play St Johnstone tomorrow. Partick Thistle picked up

:33:30.:33:33.

11. Inverness enjoyed a 3-0 victory 11. Inverness enjoyed a 3-0 victory

:33:34.:33:41.

-- 3-1 victory over Dundee. In of the South

:33:42.:33:59.

stayed top a goalless draw with Hibernian. They are leading

:34:00.:34:02.

Hibernian by one point. At the bottom, grim reading. St Mirren, but

:34:03.:34:05.

Hibernian by one point. At the they have yet to play. They will

:34:06.:34:06.

play Dunfermline athletic at 5:15 p.m.. Alloa Athletic and Brechin

:34:07.:34:08.

City are level on points. At the bottom, Stenhousemuir are two points

:34:09.:34:13.

behind Peterhead. Forfar Athletic are the only Scottish team with a

:34:14.:34:18.

100% record. Seven victories from seven matches. They are eight points

:34:19.:34:24.

clear already. At the bottom, Edinburgh City without a victory

:34:25.:34:31.

this season, three points behind Stirling Albion. In the English

:34:32.:34:34.

Premier League, Man City with a record like Forfar Athletic. They

:34:35.:34:42.

are four points clear of Spurs. A good victory for Liverpool today.

:34:43.:34:46.

They are third. At the bottom, another defeat for Sunderland, a

:34:47.:34:52.

narrow defeat. They have one point. One point behind Stoke City. West

:34:53.:35:00.

Ham United or the other team in relegation trouble. And the

:35:01.:35:02.

Championship looks like this. This is the bottom of the table.

:35:03.:35:16.

Wigan are the backmarkers. Their one point behind Derby County and

:35:17.:35:20.

Rotherham. Let's go to matters English. We will start with

:35:21.:35:23.

Manchester United and Leicester City. It was the lunchtime kick-off

:35:24.:35:29.

in the Premier League. Manchester United left

:35:30.:35:31.

in the Premier League. described as a bad week in the

:35:32.:35:34.

rear-view mirror with a resounding victory over the champions.

:35:35.:35:37.

Leicester were swept away in the opening 45 minutes, hit by a four

:35:38.:35:42.

goal blitz, three from corner kicks. Chris Smalling opened the scoring,

:35:43.:35:47.

Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba, with his first in a United

:35:48.:35:52.

shirt, added three more as Leicester were repeatedly caught out

:35:53.:36:17.

at the back. Demarai Gray scored a belter

:36:18.:36:20.

at the back. second half but the damage had been

:36:21.:36:22.

done. There was much for the home crowd to enjoy about United's

:36:23.:36:24.

performance, on a day when Wayne Rooney was left on the bench, only

:36:25.:36:27.

to come on in the final few minutes. United's archrivals City were away

:36:28.:36:29.

to Swansea City this afternoon. Guardiola's team had won their first

:36:30.:36:30.

five matches. Let's get Guardiola's team had won their first

:36:31.:36:33.

They were victorious 3-1. They are looking relentless, ten victories

:36:34.:36:35.

out of ten. City are the fourth team in Premier League history, to win

:36:36.:36:38.

the first six league games. Swansea City give them a good examination.

:36:39.:36:41.

Sergio Aguero got the first. That was levelled by Fernando Llorente's

:36:42.:36:47.

for Swansea City goal. In the second half, the turning point, a penalty

:36:48.:36:54.

handed to Man City by the referee. Sergio Aguero squirt. It took the

:36:55.:36:59.

wind out of Swansea City's sales. Raheem Sterling scored at terrific

:37:00.:37:04.

goal on the counterattack. Guardiola's side looking every inch

:37:05.:37:07.

title winners. Those comments might strike fear

:37:08.:37:11.

into the Hearts of Celtic supporters ahead of the Champions League match.

:37:12.:37:15.

Yes, they looked very strong. I think they are going to win the

:37:16.:37:19.

English league. They will have a good chance of winning the Champions

:37:20.:37:23.

League. It will be difficult for Celtic. They need to defend better

:37:24.:37:35.

than they did in Barcelona. That was an embarrassing result. They need to

:37:36.:37:39.

be more compact and make sure there are not as easy to beat. They have a

:37:40.:37:42.

better record at Celtic Park. We'll Guardiola Billy King at Celtic's 6-1

:37:43.:37:44.

victory over Kilmarnock and worrying? It is a loaded question.

:37:45.:37:49.

He will respect Celtic's home record and the atmosphere that is created.

:37:50.:37:55.

We have seen that over 10-15 years, the results in Europe are far more

:37:56.:38:01.

impressive at home. It shows you what a hellish group visits for

:38:02.:38:06.

Celtic. Coming off the back of the 7-0 against Barcelona, you are

:38:07.:38:12.

looking at a Guardiola side. City thrashed Borussia Monchengladbach.

:38:13.:38:16.

They have almost been doing in England for Celtic have been doing

:38:17.:38:19.

in Scotland. They have not lost a game. They can cut right through

:38:20.:38:24.

you. It is Celtic's misfortune may have started the season so strongly

:38:25.:38:30.

under Guardiola. Neither St Mirren or Dunfermline have started the

:38:31.:38:33.

season strongly in the Championship. They are in action this evening at

:38:34.:38:37.

East End Park, the home of Dunfermline. A reporter can set the

:38:38.:38:42.

scene. What is the middle I? It is sombre. Both teams have not been

:38:43.:38:46.

going great grounds. St Mirren with three draws and three losses.

:38:47.:38:53.

Dunfermline have lost five and the bones. 20 years since they played in

:38:54.:38:56.

the Scottish Cup final. Former team-mate Alan Johnson and Alan

:38:57.:39:01.

McManus goal head-to-head due to the sacking of Valley Parade, whose

:39:02.:39:05.

overall record was not bad. But the start of the season has done for

:39:06.:39:11.

him. -- Alan Mannus. Alan Mannus has stated he is not interested in the

:39:12.:39:16.

managerial position permanently. Dunfermline make four changes,

:39:17.:39:20.

including the goalkeeper returning. Only one change for Saints, Rocco

:39:21.:39:26.

Quinn. Will St Mirren get the new bones today that a new manager often

:39:27.:39:32.

brings? They have got Alan McManus in temporary charge. You're

:39:33.:39:36.

concerned about this game tonight? From a St Mirren point of view? Yes.

:39:37.:39:43.

It is worrying to see them bottom of the lead, without a doubt. To have

:39:44.:39:47.

another managerial loss, this would be the sixth manager in three years.

:39:48.:39:52.

Something someone is going wrong, badly. We need stability at St

:39:53.:39:56.

Mirren. There has been none for the last three years. We cannot continue

:39:57.:40:02.

to go down the way. We need positivity to get the club back up.

:40:03.:40:05.

St Mirren should be challenging around the top of the Championship.

:40:06.:40:11.

They should not be bottom. Is that the case, or is Steven Thompson

:40:12.:40:15.

looking back through the Golden haze of nostalgia? It is not long since

:40:16.:40:19.

they were a Premier League side. They are a team you would regard as

:40:20.:40:22.

being a pretty established Premier League side. They have gone through

:40:23.:40:28.

too many managers. We thought Alegue would bring stability but it has not

:40:29.:40:34.

happened. -- Alex Rae. They are now talking to Billy Davies. Some people

:40:35.:40:39.

think Gus MacPherson will end up back there. Whoever comes in has got

:40:40.:40:43.

to do it quickly. The Championship is really competitive. If you look

:40:44.:40:47.

through the number of sides, they are all capable of doing things in

:40:48.:40:52.

this division. They will not get any favours. We're going to head back to

:40:53.:40:57.

the Highlands. We can hear from the manager of Dundee, Paul Hartley. His

:40:58.:41:02.

side lost 3-1 to Inverness. After the game he spoke to Martin

:41:03.:41:06.

Dowden. Poll, you're obviously not happy with the result. How do you

:41:07.:41:11.

think your players perform? It was a bad performance. We did not start

:41:12.:41:16.

the game at all. We were too slow to everything. Defensively, you're

:41:17.:41:23.

looking for much more? The whole team, not just defensively. We have

:41:24.:41:27.

got to be better, we have got to show more desire. We started so

:41:28.:41:32.

slowly today. Is that about stopping supply into the box. For the first

:41:33.:41:36.

goal, you might have stopped the ball getting into the box? We've got

:41:37.:41:41.

to defend the box better and stop crosses. We have got to stop crosses

:41:42.:41:48.

coming in. It was a bad performance today. The penalty, do you think it

:41:49.:41:53.

was a fair decision? I do not think we have to make a challenge. We need

:41:54.:42:00.

to stay on our feet. It has happened too many times. We have got to take

:42:01.:42:02.

responsibility. Going forward, you did create but you did not take your

:42:03.:42:07.

chances. It looked like you may get back into the game. While you happy

:42:08.:42:09.

chances. It looked like you may get with some omelettes of that? Not

:42:10.:42:15.

enough. -- with some elements of that. We had half chances but not

:42:16.:42:20.

enough. You have not been happy recently with how things have been

:42:21.:42:24.

going. Was it just one of those days? It was a bad performance. I

:42:25.:42:30.

cannot put my finger on it. As a team, we did not play well. There

:42:31.:42:34.

are not many players that got pass marks today. I think it is Celtic

:42:35.:42:42.

next that Dens Park. They are the best team in the country. They have

:42:43.:42:45.

good players. We will have to perform better than today. There was

:42:46.:42:49.

talk about Lonsana Doumbouya with a couple of challenges. You were you

:42:50.:42:52.

happy with the decision of the referee? The referee was fine. It

:42:53.:42:58.

was not the referee. It was our performance.

:42:59.:43:01.

Thanks. See you later. There are couple of Premiership matches still

:43:02.:43:07.

to be this weekend. The first is the first meeting between Aberdeen and

:43:08.:43:11.

Rangers in four years. It is that Pittodrie at one o'clock. A couple

:43:12.:43:15.

of hours later, Hamilton host St Johnstone. You can listen to the

:43:16.:43:18.

action on the radio. These are the Johnstone. You can listen to the

:43:19.:43:27.

details. Let's start with Aberdeen against Rangers. Mark Warburton says

:43:28.:43:32.

he does not understand why the atmosphere could be poisonous in

:43:33.:43:35.

this one? Can you enlighten us? How long have you got left on the show?

:43:36.:43:40.

I was looking at the newspapers today, the catalogue of incidents

:43:41.:43:46.

between these two clubs. They started in 1979, I think. You could

:43:47.:43:52.

probably take it back further. It is one of the big, controversial,

:43:53.:43:56.

heated, Filey fixtures in Scottish football. Four years and eight

:43:57.:44:03.

months and they played each other. These are the two clubs that have

:44:04.:44:08.

not met in the last four years. Rangers have played everybody else

:44:09.:44:11.

in cup ties, including Celtic, but they were never drawn against

:44:12.:44:16.

Aberdeen. It is that Pittodrie, which tends to be even more

:44:17.:44:23.

eventful. Having played as a Rangers player that Pittodrie... Hatred is a

:44:24.:44:28.

strong word. That are disliked between the supporters. The

:44:29.:44:30.

atmosphere Pittodrie, when Rangers go to play, it is magnificent. They

:44:31.:44:35.

will need to deal with the atmosphere as well as the game. If

:44:36.:44:39.

Rangers have aspirations of finishing second, this is a game

:44:40.:44:43.

they need to win. Aberdeen have finished second to years in a row.

:44:44.:44:46.

They are the marker that Rangers need to get to. It is very little

:44:47.:44:55.

between the sites. You have predicted a draw. You're sitting on

:44:56.:45:03.

the fence. I have gone 41-1. I have been wrong with my other predictions

:45:04.:45:04.

today. What is your feeling? We don't know a few things, whether

:45:05.:45:19.

or not they will have their player for Aberdeen.

:45:20.:45:24.

And there are injuries that have occurred in the warm-ups. If Hayes

:45:25.:45:29.

plays I can see Aberdeen winning by a goal.

:45:30.:45:35.

Is he so crucial? He gives pace and threat. He does not score a lot,

:45:36.:45:41.

Johnny Hayes but he does create. He's crucial. They played on

:45:42.:45:48.

Thursday night, Rangers played on Tuesday, that's the only factor.

:45:49.:45:54.

And we have this interview with Martin Dowden.

:45:55.:46:00.

Richie, a clinical performance and an extended unbeaten run, four

:46:01.:46:04.

games? Yes, we are going in the right direction. That's what we've

:46:05.:46:08.

been looking for. Created five or six chances. We took obviously three

:46:09.:46:13.

of those. That is pleasing. I thought that the boys at the back

:46:14.:46:18.

were colossal. They really wons the game.

:46:19.:46:21.

There seems a real air of confidence. Is that because of the

:46:22.:46:25.

results you are getting, the performances improving? Obviously

:46:26.:46:29.

good results, great confidence. We are climbing the table. Looking up.

:46:30.:46:34.

We have been through a bad patch, we didn't let it affect us. We were

:46:35.:46:39.

mentally strong, we have done well. But I believe there is more to come

:46:40.:46:43.

for us. That is what you call a beard.

:46:44.:46:44.

It is. beard.

:46:45.:46:52.

Mike is trying to grow one as well. He mentioned building the momentum?

:46:53.:46:57.

That is crucial? Yes, you look the last four games, beating Johnston, a

:46:58.:47:03.

draw at pud oddry, to Celtic and then today. They are moving in the

:47:04.:47:08.

are right direction. Our time with you is almost over for today. I'll

:47:09.:47:14.

remind you of the goings on in the top two divisions in Scotland this

:47:15.:47:18.

afternoon. We start in time-honoured tradition with the Scottish

:47:19.:47:23.

Premiership. There it is. A resounding win for Celtic. 6 winners

:47:24.:47:29.

for them at home. They are at home in the middle of

:47:30.:47:35.
