Rumours that Rangers have the title in the bag may have been greatly

:00:23.:00:28.

exaggerated. On the evidence of the last couple of weeks, at Celtic's

:00:28.:00:33.

challenge is very much alive. I am joined by the man who put the

:00:34.:00:42.

squiggle into Scottish football. have been practising hitting 40

:00:42.:00:46.

yards squiggles. The ball broke to me and I thought I would have a

:00:46.:00:56.

crack. I thought, just hit it. was 45 yards! To be fair, it did

:00:56.:01:05.

squiggle. Dundee United midfielder John Rankin is here. First, the

:01:05.:01:10.

action from Rugby Park. When Rangers were last at Kilmarnock

:01:10.:01:20.
:01:20.:01:26.

they clinched their third title on Looking for another one, he might

:01:26.:01:36.
:01:36.:01:37.

get it. Lafferty. Nikica Jelavic. Laverty get sick. It is fired on

:01:37.:01:42.

title bait. There was a double boost for Kilmarnock, keeper Cammy

:01:42.:01:52.
:01:52.:01:53.

Bell back after being injured. And Paul Heffeman past and injury test.

:01:53.:02:03.
:02:03.:02:14.

The leaders were without Carlos perfect connection. It went into

:02:14.:02:24.
:02:24.:02:34.

the arms of Cammy Bell. Nikica penalty. He looked to be off

:02:34.:02:44.
:02:44.:02:54.

second shot away. It was a difficult one for the goalkeeper,

:02:54.:03:04.
:03:04.:03:32.

bit clumsy. McCulloch eventually Gary Harkins just lacking a little

:03:32.:03:42.
:03:42.:04:00.

moment. Kilmarnock still trying to come forward. Manuel Pascali was

:04:00.:04:10.
:04:10.:04:41.

McGregor to deny Paul Heffeman. Great play in the midfield from

:04:41.:04:46.

Kilmarnock. Paul Heffeman was onside. He thought he slipped it

:04:46.:04:56.
:04:56.:04:56.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 60 seconds

:04:56.:05:57.

Ally McCoist. Manuel Pascali was there and onside. With 10 minutes

:05:57.:06:02.

to play he has given Kilmarnock the lead. It looks like Sonic Aluko was

:06:02.:06:08.

slow to come out. The back-header was clever. Allan McGregor had no

:06:08.:06:18.

chance. -- Sone Aluko. 30 matches Rangers have come here in the SPL

:06:18.:06:28.
:06:28.:06:57.

and they had left with 30 unbeaten. desperate now. He was onside, the

:06:57.:07:07.
:07:07.:07:08.

left-back played him on, but it was Where come on it worth it? I think

:07:08.:07:13.

they were well worth the win. They played some good football and

:07:13.:07:19.

deserved to win. I think Sone Aluko should have come out earlier. It is

:07:19.:07:23.

his first competitive game for a number of months and maybe he was

:07:23.:07:28.

not physically tired, but switched off and he did not step out quick

:07:28.:07:38.
:07:38.:07:41.

enough. They benefited from it. Kilmarnock had other chances.

:07:41.:07:51.
:07:51.:07:52.

I do not think that is a penalty. Are you changing your mind? I do

:07:52.:07:57.

not think it is a penalty, there is no pull on the shirt. Then Nikica

:07:57.:08:04.

Jelavic with his header off the bar. This was Paul Heffeman who did not

:08:04.:08:11.

do too much wrong. It is a great save. MacGregor comes out and

:08:11.:08:15.

spreads himself so well. Do you reckon that the lack of matches

:08:15.:08:20.

might have had an impact here on what Sone Aluko did not do? Yes, it

:08:20.:08:25.

is not so much physically tired, it is more mentally. He switched off

:08:25.:08:31.

and his concentration went and it cost them the goal. It ends up

:08:31.:08:35.

being a nightmare debut was Sony Aluko. It could have been a dream

:08:35.:08:40.

debut when you look at what he did in attack. He was involved in

:08:40.:08:45.

Rangers' better moments. He was involved in some great chances.

:08:45.:08:50.

What about this? I do not think it is a penalty. I think Danny Racci

:08:50.:08:58.

is a bit clumsy. It catches Sony Aluko's tone. This is magnificent

:08:58.:09:08.
:09:08.:09:10.

defending from Fowler. He was unfortunate to hit the back post.

:09:10.:09:16.

It is into a great area. Anything could happen. He was so unfortunate.

:09:16.:09:21.

It landed safely for Kilmarnock. This was a big chance near the end

:09:21.:09:26.

for at Rangers to get something. Alejandro Bedoya. He did not make a

:09:26.:09:31.

good job of this. It is a great touch, but I think he tried to go

:09:31.:09:37.

across the goalkeeper, but he hits it straight at him. Ally McCoist

:09:38.:09:43.

was critical of Rangers' attitude today. Could you see that in the

:09:43.:09:47.

way they played? Obviously they came off the back of a

:09:47.:09:52.

disappointing home draw last became. It was disappointing last weekend,

:09:52.:09:56.

but I felt Kilmarnock did very well today. They passed the ball very

:09:56.:10:02.

well. Maybe their style of play suits them to play against Rangers.

:10:02.:10:08.

Kilmarnock have got some great footballers and they played a nice,

:10:08.:10:13.

passing routines today. It is their first home win against Rangers

:10:13.:10:17.

since 1994. Let's see how Dundee United got on against Motherwell,

:10:17.:10:27.
:10:27.:10:33.

one of the teams of the season. game a permanent memorial to Phil

:10:33.:10:39.

O'Donnell. A former captain died four years ago aged just 35. He

:10:39.:10:43.

continues to be an inspiration to those employed at Fir Park and

:10:43.:10:49.

Motherwell continued their inspirational season. There was an

:10:49.:10:54.

early half-chance. Like most places in Scotland yesterday it was

:10:54.:11:02.

blowing a gale and United were blowing a sigh of relief. But the

:11:02.:11:07.

whistle had sounded and it was ruled out by the assistant referee.

:11:07.:11:17.
:11:17.:11:18.

The ball had gone just out of play. Dundee United were looking to

:11:18.:11:23.

follow up last weekend's victory over Hearts. John Rankin with a

:11:23.:11:31.

shot. The slightest of deflections off the boot of Johnnie Russell not

:11:31.:11:36.

enough to deceive the Motherwell keeper. By a terrible bit of

:11:36.:11:42.

defending from John Hutchinson gave Jon Daly a big chance to score.

:11:42.:11:51.

Again a fine save from the United skipper. In the second have a great

:11:51.:11:58.

chance for Motherwell. Hutchinson with a header which he should have

:11:58.:12:08.
:12:08.:12:12.

scored. Then there was a counter attack for United. He was just cut

:12:12.:12:19.

down by Steve Jennings in the nick of time. The Motherwell midfielder

:12:19.:12:24.

with a vital intervention. In the swirling conditions John Rankin

:12:24.:12:27.

tried as squiggle to break the deadlock, but not quite enough

:12:27.:12:37.
:12:37.:12:42.

It was not great, John, was it? Both managers reckon that should

:12:42.:12:47.

not have gone ahead. Was it that bad? I think yesterday was a great

:12:48.:12:52.

advert for summer football. Yesterday two corners came in and

:12:52.:12:58.

they came straight out. The wind caught it and took it straight back

:12:58.:13:03.

out. It was a nightmare at times, the weather, but what can you do?

:13:03.:13:09.

We have got to get on with it. to page 27 of the Book of excuses.

:13:09.:13:15.

Why is it worse at Fir Park? think because of the gaps in the

:13:15.:13:23.

stands. The wind is coming in and it was swirling. It had no way to

:13:23.:13:28.

get out and it was going back down the other side. None of the players

:13:28.:13:32.

could deal with it. They were judging it and when the ball

:13:32.:13:37.

bounced the wind took it and it would be away again. You are not

:13:37.:13:43.

complaining about a point away from home especially at Motherwell.

:13:43.:13:46.

they came to Tannadice and played some great football. It was great

:13:46.:13:50.

for us to get a point yesterday, especially going to such a

:13:50.:13:55.

difficult place as Fir Park. Let's have a look at the season in

:13:55.:14:00.

graphic form which confirms what a great start United got off to. It

:14:00.:14:05.

has been downwards since. I take it you do not see United as a bottom

:14:05.:14:15.

We have been unfortunate on some occasions this season. We were

:14:15.:14:20.

speaking about it before the game, we were the highest scorers outside

:14:20.:14:25.

the old Firm. Albeit we have been conceding a lot of silly goals, but

:14:25.:14:30.

we have tightened up recently. After the Aberdeen game, the

:14:30.:14:36.

manager had asked watching be DVD, and since then, we have tightened

:14:36.:14:40.

up the defence. And my right in thinking you have not squiggles

:14:40.:14:48.

recently? It has been a while. I was quite close yesterday, but

:14:48.:14:53.

unfortunately, so far not. It will hopefully come soon. It did not

:14:53.:15:03.
:15:03.:15:05.

move enough to trouble the keeper. This is the real thing. I can tell

:15:05.:15:12.

the grandchildren about that in years to come. It thought it was

:15:12.:15:20.

good to be a substitution. You had better get back to it soon.

:15:20.:15:27.

A new Hibs manager Pat Fenlon, and for son Justin, steam -- Steve

Lomas, the first home game as Lomas, the first home game as

:15:29.:15:39.
:15:39.:15:56.

right. Davidson. Anderson. Good kick from Richie Towell. Bobby

:15:56.:16:01.

Davison prevented the chance to go fits. Off the backside of Andersen.

:16:01.:16:08.

Richie Towell on the follow up. Richie Towell on his second loan

:16:08.:16:16.

spell with Hibs, scores of the first time. -- for the first time.

:16:16.:16:26.
:16:26.:16:26.

Keeper gets the touch. Murray Davidson. Willie Davidson came

:16:26.:16:36.
:16:36.:16:41.

close there. He returns it. Sandaza chasing. Sandaza, of the post. It

:16:41.:16:51.
:16:51.:16:52.

had come to a tense, but Sandaza equalises for St Johnstone. Sandaza

:16:52.:16:56.

or beats the goalkeeper but it fell back to him, with seven minutes to

:16:56.:17:06.
:17:06.:17:07.

half-time, St Johnstone level. The centre half light to rumble forward.

:17:07.:17:14.

Stevenson. Deflected. Dave Mackay. St Johnstone have come from behind

:17:14.:17:24.
:17:24.:17:38.

to lead. Marcus Haber is the free kick. Davids and coming across,

:17:38.:17:45.

Stevens coming out. -- Davidson. Terrific scoring record against

:17:45.:17:55.

Hibs. Dave Mackay. 3-1 to St Johnstone. Craig was the danger,

:17:55.:18:02.

but Dave Mackay came out and curled it in. The decline worked. -- E-

:18:02.:18:12.
:18:12.:18:25.

suspiciously like an offside position, inches away. St Johnstone,

:18:25.:18:35.

Marcus Haber. Lost in that physical battle. Lovely back-heel. The

:18:35.:18:40.

finish did not match the set-up. Beautifully done to give himself

:18:40.:18:50.
:18:50.:18:51.

space. Stephens wants his goalkeeper to come for it. Davidson.

:18:51.:19:00.

Stevens gets in the way of Liam Craig. Turned away by David Stevens.

:19:00.:19:08.

The goalkeeper spell that out. Mayhem ensued. O'Hanlon could get

:19:08.:19:18.
:19:18.:19:19.

there. His shot deflected. Searching for our way back into the

:19:19.:19:28.

match. Get away from Mackay, of Red goes. -- over it goes. Lovely foot

:19:28.:19:38.
:19:38.:19:42.

work from heads. -- heads. He has got the pace, goes for it. Turns

:19:42.:19:52.
:19:52.:19:53.

Dave Mackay away. He could not hold it. Steve Lomas said there are

:19:53.:20:00.

three points for his first home three points for his first home

:20:00.:20:03.

game. Davidson was taken out, couldn't pass away.

:20:03.:20:11.

Another bad day for Hibs, there have been plenty of them. Was Colin

:20:11.:20:15.

Calderwood some and you thought was on the wrong movie? Are I think he

:20:15.:20:21.

had a hard task. He had three months before to get any players,

:20:21.:20:30.

and that he did, he had players who had not much experience. He had to

:20:30.:20:34.

drum his on players in and then he had a bad start. He paid the price

:20:34.:20:39.

for losing his job. The three goals yesterday, a great from St

:20:39.:20:44.

Johnstone, they have had a great run of results. Steve Lomas,

:20:44.:20:49.

looking at this from the heads point of view, poor defending, bad

:20:49.:20:55.

concentration, not enough resilience. I think if you asked

:20:55.:20:59.

David Stevens, he would probably have put that in the stand. Butty

:20:59.:21:06.

thought he was going to take it. He went to touch it with his back foot.

:21:06.:21:11.

Dave Mackay, he stands a great ball up to the back post. Not much he

:21:11.:21:20.

can do to defend that. It goes through stack's legs. Is this

:21:20.:21:25.

slightly wind-assisted? I thought it was not far enough over. But

:21:25.:21:32.

when you see it, the wind catches the ball and blows up a little bit.

:21:32.:21:37.

Pat Fenlon was watching yesterday. This is his playing and managerial

:21:37.:21:45.

record across the water. Decorated in terms of his management. Five

:21:45.:21:49.

times a managerial winner in the leak of Ireland, Davis Cup

:21:49.:21:53.

competitions as well. He was watching from the stand at

:21:53.:21:58.

McDiarmid Park yesterday. Just because he has a winner in Ireland,

:21:58.:22:04.

does that guarantees you can transfer that success to Scotland?

:22:04.:22:07.

You are never guaranteed any success, but he has great

:22:07.:22:11.

experience in Ireland and I am sure he will bring someone in for

:22:11.:22:14.

Scotland that knows the Scottish game. I'm sure Pat Fenlon noses

:22:14.:22:18.

Scottish players but I am sure there is some he has his eye on to

:22:18.:22:23.

bring in and help them. Liam O'Brien was assistant at Shamrock

:22:23.:22:31.

Rovers was there yesterday as well. I have seen Pat Fenlon Go Ahead

:22:31.:22:34.

interview when he spoke about it, he was going to speak to Billy

:22:34.:22:38.

Brown this morning and the rest of the staff on Monday. Pat wants to

:22:38.:22:41.

come over here and be successful, he will bring his own backroom

:22:41.:22:45.

staff. A Billy Brown said it was a massive task for Pat Fenlon to sort

:22:46.:22:51.

things out. Is that the way you see it? I think it is a massive task.

:22:51.:22:55.

Some great players at Easter Road, but unfortunately, it has not

:22:55.:23:00.

worked out. Pat Fenlon is going to ring the changes as well, bringing

:23:00.:23:06.

some of his own players. There were simply is that Colin Barton and

:23:06.:23:12.

John Hughes Brom -- Broughton. It is a big job and it will be

:23:12.:23:17.

interesting times for heads. High- scoring games was at East End Park,

:23:17.:23:27.
:23:27.:23:34.

dog from Mullin against Aberdeen. - joy on that left-hand side.

:23:34.:23:42.

Magennis can't quite get there. A real chance for a Aberdeen.

:23:42.:23:52.

Magennis on the stretch. Kirk, past Barrowman, Graham arrives at the

:23:52.:23:59.

back post. It came to him quickly, but Graham has to hit the target

:23:59.:24:09.
:24:09.:24:14.

from there. Again, Aberdeen find space in the left. A late corner in

:24:14.:24:22.

this first half. Swings it to the back post. On the stroke of half-

:24:22.:24:31.

time. They have been threatening from set pieces. Considine wasn't

:24:31.:24:40.

picked up. No chance for Paul Gallacher to keep that one out.

:24:40.:24:50.
:24:50.:24:54.

Here is Barrowman. On the rebound by Barrowman. And Barrowman,

:24:54.:25:04.
:25:04.:25:08.

dropping in his own rebound. Picks up. Dunfermline on the counter-

:25:09.:25:18.
:25:19.:25:21.

attack. It is all change at East End Park. Dunfermline have turned

:25:21.:25:31.
:25:31.:25:38.

it around. Gonzalez's outstretched arm could not keep it out. Foster.

:25:38.:25:48.
:25:48.:25:50.

Looking for a winning. There is Magennis. Dreadful. He has had

:25:50.:25:59.

chances and has not taken any of them. The referee allowed play to

:25:59.:26:09.
:26:09.:26:20.

continue. Saved by Gonzalez. The M Buchanan. -- Liam Buchanan. Looking

:26:20.:26:27.

good now. 3-1. Aberdeen will wonder how they are behind. Magennis with

:26:27.:26:34.

a chance to pull one back. Gallacher was outsmarted. It has

:26:34.:26:44.

not been Magennis's des. -- day. Magennis once were trying his luck

:26:44.:26:50.

and again, does not come off. Gallacher able to take that won

:26:50.:27:00.
:27:00.:27:02.

easily. Considine penalised. Dunfermline take the free kick.

:27:02.:27:10.

What has saved by Gonzalez! That was a certain goal. Amazing

:27:10.:27:18.

reflexes by the Colombian. Brown flummoxed as to how his side have

:27:18.:27:27.

fallen behind. It is an own goal! It has come off the head of Alex

:27:27.:27:32.

Keddie and Aberdeen have a lifeline. Just mistimed his jump, the

:27:32.:27:41.

defender. Aberdeen threatened from the corner kick. Off the post.

:27:41.:27:46.

Considine he could not turn it towards the goal for Dunfermline.

:27:46.:27:54.

The architects of their own problems year. Causing confusion.

:27:54.:28:04.
:28:04.:28:04.

Magennis scores! 3-3, what a game. It has twisted and turned. Josh

:28:04.:28:14.
:28:14.:28:14.

Magennis has drawn Aberdeen level. Is there more drama to come?

:28:14.:28:19.

Milsom's corner. He should have won Milsom's corner. He should have won

:28:19.:28:23.

it for Aberdeen there. A free header.

:28:23.:28:27.

So, Dunfermline still waiting. They must have thought they would get a

:28:27.:28:33.

win. Disappointing for them. There are lots of teams at the Tainio --

:28:33.:28:37.

till end of the SPL. Do you like and from then? I think they have

:28:37.:28:41.

been very good this season. They have played a lot of passing

:28:41.:28:47.

football. They have got the width in their team with David Graham.

:28:47.:28:51.

They have a lot of pace. They're very direct. This was a crucial

:28:51.:28:58.

phase of the game when Gonzalez pulled off this amazing save, and

:28:58.:29:04.

it would have gone in and made it 4-1. I cannot see what Barrowman

:29:04.:29:09.

does wrong. When he hits the target, he is on top of it. It was a great

:29:10.:29:19.

save. It was the set pieces. They will be gutted about that. It is

:29:19.:29:22.

the set pieces. This one is the worse for me, because the defender

:29:22.:29:32.
:29:32.:29:36.

It was an amazing game at East End Park and it finished three each.

:29:36.:29:41.

Hearts will begin to end a barren run. The last time Inverness one at

:29:41.:29:51.
:29:51.:30:17.

Tynecastle it was 3-2 four years grasped the point for Inverness.

:30:17.:30:21.

Inverness were hoping the weight problems at Hearts would affect the

:30:21.:30:26.

home side. An early goal would certainly have demoralised parts,

:30:26.:30:32.

but overall the first half amounted to just a gentle sparring. 25

:30:32.:30:37.

seconds into the second have it turns serious. Rudi Skacel got the

:30:37.:30:44.

sweetest of strikes. Hard to broker the four-match goal drought. Jamie

:30:44.:30:53.

how all with the long ball and Sutton keen to make an impression.

:30:53.:30:58.

Terry Butcher set about rallying the Inverness Caledonian Thistle

:30:58.:31:08.
:31:08.:31:14.

troops and rallied they did. Inverness are then sent Johnny

:31:14.:31:20.

Hayes the way. There was a free kick to Inverness Caledonian

:31:20.:31:30.
:31:30.:31:32.

Thistle. The balls world on to the head of Ross Tokely. It was 1-1.

:31:32.:31:42.
:31:42.:31:43.

Ross Tokely got his first goal Ont -- of the season. It would not be

:31:43.:31:47.

the last bit of poor defending we would see in this match. Suddenly

:31:47.:31:53.

this game had built up a real head of steam. John Sutton with a strike

:31:53.:32:03.
:32:03.:32:10.

from the edge of -- edge of the box. Eggert Jonsson was there. Hearts

:32:10.:32:15.

had a 2-1 lead. The Inverness defence were all at sea and a lapse

:32:15.:32:19.

in concentration would prove crucial as Hearts held on for all

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

Inverness another of your old teams. They do not look to me like a team

:32:29.:32:33.

that should be in a relegation scrap. Do you think they will be?

:32:33.:32:37.

do not think they will be. Inverness always step up to the

:32:37.:32:42.

plate. It is a difficult place to go especially in this weather,

:32:42.:32:46.

especially with the wind and the rain. This is the time they will

:32:46.:32:50.

pick up results. A good spirit about them? There is a great spirit

:32:51.:32:54.

about Inverness. They are so isolated and so far away and they

:32:54.:32:59.

have got the opportunity to be together of the time. The spirit

:32:59.:33:02.

will see them through. Terry Butcher will not be to chant about

:33:02.:33:10.

the way they defended the goals. is great for Rudi Skacel. But there

:33:10.:33:18.

was no Tracking whatsoever. If you watch his movement, there is nobody

:33:18.:33:23.

in his facility running. It was a great finish. They get it wrong

:33:23.:33:29.

twice over. It is poor defending altogether. I think there should be

two meant out there. That was a great cross. One Highland team in

:33:37.:33:42.

the SPL at the moment. This is my opportunity to mention Ross County.

:33:42.:33:49.

Will we have two teams in the top next season? I think you will. They

:33:49.:33:52.

have got some great experienced professionals. I think they will be

:33:52.:33:57.

promoted. I think they will be in the SPL next season. The biggest

:33:57.:34:02.

mistake of your career leaving them. St Mirren were not using their

:34:02.:34:06.

records to build belief about their chances yesterday. The last time

:34:06.:34:13.

they want was nearly 22 years ago. The year was 1990. Scotland beat

:34:13.:34:17.

England to win rugby's Grand Slam. Nelson Mandela was finally freed

:34:17.:34:23.

from prison. Aberdeen won the Scottish Cup 98 on penalties.

:34:23.:34:28.

Margaret Thatcher resigned as Prime Minister. It was the last time St

:34:28.:34:38.
:34:38.:34:53.

That is a great golf. 3-0. Paul Lambert. At Celtic these days

:34:53.:34:57.

Georgia has Samaras has shuttled in and out of the team. He was in

:34:57.:35:07.
:35:07.:35:20.

yesterday. Kris Commons was out St Mirren have dominated possession

:35:20.:35:30.
:35:30.:35:34.

in the first few minutes. Georgios Samaras end on golf. -- In on golf.

:35:34.:35:44.
:35:44.:35:46.

Amazingly it is his first goal of the season. It is a real howler.

:35:46.:35:51.

Sampson got his left hand to it. Agonisingly for him it crept over

:35:51.:36:01.
:36:01.:36:15.

space for Georgia's Samaras to create more problems. It is a tap-

:36:15.:36:21.

in for Hooper. The flag stays down. Celtic have a two-goal lead inside

:36:21.:36:31.
:36:31.:36:31.

eight minutes. How much room did St Mirren give to Georgia Samaras. The

:36:32.:36:40.

outcome was inevitable. Neil Lennon hoping his team can make it four

:36:40.:36:45.

SPL wins on the trot. They are well on the weight. They are helped by

:36:45.:36:55.
:36:55.:36:55.

mistakes from St Mirren. Sampson saved it this time, just. Tenacious

:36:55.:37:05.
:37:05.:37:06.

play from Samaras. Celtic on the attack again straight after half-

:37:06.:37:11.

time. Gary Hooper is in with a chance for number three. A good

:37:11.:37:17.

save from Samson. You would have your money on Gary Hooper extending

:37:17.:37:27.
:37:27.:37:45.

so big's advantage immediately number three. It is brilliant

:37:45.:37:54.

finishing again from Gary Hooper. He turned away from the defender

:37:54.:37:58.

and fired into the corner. Celtic now have the game firmly within

:37:58.:38:08.
:38:08.:38:12.

their grasp. McGann when struck it very well. But it is symptomatic of

:38:12.:38:22.
:38:22.:38:41.

St Mirren's date. It has all gone is top-class finishing. A hat-trick

:38:41.:38:51.
:38:51.:39:03.

takes his season's tally to a very moment. His second attempt was

:39:03.:39:13.
:39:13.:39:20.

forgettable. That was the big chance. Opportunity gone. The

:39:20.:39:24.

teenager is bearing down on goal with options either side. He did

:39:24.:39:34.
:39:34.:39:34.

not want to part with it. It is a wonder goal from Dylan McGeoch.

:39:34.:39:43.

Something special on his home debut. That is certainly due a celebration.

:39:43.:39:51.

When in possession outside Celtic's own penalty box. He decided to go

:39:51.:39:56.

it alone will stop it might have taken a flick off MacGowan in the

:39:56.:40:06.
:40:06.:40:20.

end. But that is a goal to remember It is now back to a four points

:40:20.:40:23.

between Rangers and Celtic at the top. It has been a big week for

:40:23.:40:28.

Celtic. They have gathered momentum in the last few games and Rangers

:40:28.:40:35.

are feeling the pressure. Celtic have done well and hopefully next

:40:35.:40:39.

week when they come to Tannadice they will not have that behind them.

:40:39.:40:44.

They would love to know they were going to get that performance from

:40:44.:40:49.

Samaras week-in, week-out. He pretty much set the tone. Yes, he

:40:49.:40:54.

is quick on his day. It's just that you would like to see that happen

:40:54.:41:02.

more often. Some people were giving him man of the match when it is

:41:02.:41:05.

incredible that Gary Cooper scored a hat-trick. It was typical

:41:05.:41:15.
:41:15.:41:17.

finishing from him. It was great finishing. It was great movement

:41:17.:41:23.

from Hooper. Again he is in the right place at the right time. That

:41:23.:41:28.

was a great touch. If that was in the Premiership, everybody would be

:41:28.:41:33.

raving about it. That hat-trick took his season's tally to 12,

:41:33.:41:39.

overtaking Anthony Stokes. Last week he got to 11. He is just an

:41:39.:41:46.

instinctive finisher, Hooper. two of them are. You think of a big

:41:46.:41:55.

man and a little man up front, and they hit it off so well at times it

:41:55.:41:59.

is frightening. It is going to be a plus for Celtic as it gets much

:41:59.:42:04.

more competitive at the top end of the table. James Forrester puts in

:42:04.:42:13.

a fair few as well. Stokes scored two last week and to pay yesterday

:42:13.:42:18.

and forests and Samaras, Celtic are on form. And they are producing

:42:18.:42:22.

young talent as well. This is the moment Eighteen-year-old Dylan

:42:22.:42:26.

McGeoch one remember for the rest of his days. It was a great

:42:26.:42:31.

challenge to win the ball. He does not even lift his head. The boy has

:42:31.:42:36.

got so much confidence in himself he is not even looking for a pass.

:42:36.:42:44.

As soon as he gets it on his left foot, he drools it home. Is that

:42:44.:42:49.

and 80 yard run, box-to-box? sure is. He does not even lift his

:42:49.:42:53.

head to look for anyone else. He has got one thing on his mind, and

:42:54.:42:58.

there you go. A how damaging will that be for St Mirren who played

:42:58.:43:03.

great football, but it all went badly? I do not think it will be

:43:03.:43:08.

damaging for them. That is the way they are going to play and they are

:43:08.:43:11.

not going to change it. Danny Lennon has built a side that are

:43:11.:43:15.

going to pass. At some point you will get defeated heavily.

:43:15.:43:20.

Yesterday was that defeat and next Saturday they will pass the ball

:43:20.:43:24.

the same way as they always have. Are you getting Celtic at a bad

:43:24.:43:29.

time next weekend? Probably, yes, they are hitting form at the right

:43:29.:43:35.

time. But I am sure the atmosphere will be good. They have got a

:43:35.:43:38.

European tie to contend between now and then and hopefully we will be

:43:38.:43:43.

fresh. You want to get out of that bottom six. Yes, and the sooner the

:43:43.:43:52.

better it. Let's have a look at the placings as they are. It is so much
