45 minutes of festive football coming up as we pull together for

:00:24.:00:28.

you all the Boxing Day action from the SPL. In the studio two, former

:00:28.:00:33.

team-mates with a little bit of an age difference between them who

:00:33.:00:38.

have both scored in this Kilmarnock-Rangers game from August

:00:38.:00:43.

2000, yes, it was 12 years ago. That was his first goal for Rangers,

:00:43.:00:50.

but White Caps striker Kenny Miller is with us in the studio. Billy and

:00:50.:01:00.
:01:00.:01:16.

I were last night seeing a game. We scoop behind by Douglas. A great

:01:16.:01:26.
:01:26.:01:28.

cross in. Charlie Mulgrew. Delivery is good. That's caused problems,

:01:28.:01:38.
:01:38.:01:48.

over the bar. Up and over, didn't flicked across, good save by the

:01:48.:01:58.
:01:58.:02:09.

goalkeeper Samaras. A great finish, lashed it into the net. It was a

:02:09.:02:19.
:02:19.:02:24.

Samaras, opens himself up, and it's a finger-tip save from Douglas,

:02:24.:02:31.

almost the second of the night for the Greek. A good finish, a great

:02:31.:02:41.
:02:41.:02:47.

ball, Conroy stops the action, and John Baird - Kevin Wilson was

:02:47.:02:52.

running alongside him. He had been pulling at him, and we have not

:02:52.:03:02.
:03:02.:03:03.

heard the last of that. McBride on to Lockwood, Con roy. Nish with the

:03:03.:03:12.

save, Wilson away. This is a great ball. He could not have made that

:03:12.:03:16.

any sweeter, pushed away by the goalkeeper. Dundee were almost

:03:17.:03:24.

level. There's McAlastair, Dundee, starting to find their rhythm, a

:03:24.:03:30.

ball to the middle. Nish wanted it. It was knocked away, Gary Irvin.

:03:30.:03:36.

Nish gets back up. On to John Barens, much, much better from

:03:36.:03:46.
:03:46.:04:01.

Forestieri, plenty of Dundee players back who will have to

:04:01.:04:10.

defend this cross if it comes - a fine save, and Baird picks it up

:04:10.:04:20.
:04:20.:04:30.

and clears. Douglas put down some and getting involved Benedictus

:04:30.:04:33.

with Hooper. I don't think the Dundee centre half liked the way

:04:33.:04:40.

his legs came up. He felt the right leg was leaning into him. A little

:04:40.:04:50.
:04:50.:04:56.

bit of afters - the referee Hooper has finished. 19 minutes to

:04:56.:05:01.

play - it's the second for Celtic, and it's sublime from Gary Hooper.

:05:01.:05:05.

The central defenders were not aligned as control killed the ball.

:05:05.:05:10.

His finish has killed off Dundee. That's brilliant from Gary Hooper.

:05:10.:05:18.

Clinical and deadly, and he lifts Celtic, you would think now, to all

:05:18.:05:27.

three points. Every picture tells a story. Celtic

:05:27.:05:37.
:05:37.:05:45.

forced out. He's doing what he does best, keeping opponents at bay.

:05:46.:05:55.
:05:56.:05:59.

really good save from him. Gary Hooper trying to come inside on the

:05:59.:06:03.

channel. That's a fine save. It's beginning to look pretty ominous

:06:03.:06:07.

for the rest of the SPL. Celtic's current run of form - six straight

:06:07.:06:11.

wins. It's increased their advantage at the top and has also

:06:11.:06:15.

taken them to the last 16 of the Scottish Cup and more prestigiously

:06:15.:06:18.

the last 16 of the Champions' League. How impressed are you with

:06:18.:06:22.

your old team? Yes, it's fantastic achievement for them to make the

:06:22.:06:26.

last 16 of the Champions' League, and you see now they've dispatched

:06:26.:06:29.

that, now they've got that out of the way because they worked well in

:06:29.:06:31.

the League at home and in particular when the Champions'

:06:31.:06:35.

League was going on, but now they've put a fantastic run of

:06:35.:06:38.

early results together in the League now. Like you say, they're

:06:38.:06:43.

moving clear at the top. You and I were there last night. Celtic had a

:06:43.:06:46.

succession of first-half corner kicks. It was only matter of time

:06:46.:06:51.

before they broke through. Yeah, they had a distinct advantage. You

:06:51.:06:55.

see Ambrose there over Dundee. You can see it highlighted there - all

:06:55.:07:00.

matched up. You don't drop runners. They drop Ambrose, then the theme

:07:00.:07:05.

continued. You see there again dropping runners, and the next one

:07:05.:07:10.

you will see - it comes to War. He's peeled away. The finish was

:07:10.:07:17.

sublime. It's just one of those ones that fly in the top of the net.

:07:17.:07:22.

But it's highlighted three Dundee players, three Celtic players, and

:07:22.:07:28.

they still got one in. They had to truck runners, and they didn't.

:07:28.:07:34.

it inevitable Kevin Wilson is going to be hearing from Lummi at the

:07:34.:07:38.

Scottish FA? No, we see here the running - I was going to say leave

:07:38.:07:43.

it to Kenny, but he was going to join Baird, but Kevin Wilson, the

:07:43.:07:47.

one thing you can do is lash out. No-one likes to see players getting

:07:47.:07:51.

suspended, but that is a clear elbow there. Like I said, he'll be

:07:51.:07:54.

hearing from somebody about that. The point I am making is Wilson was

:07:54.:07:58.

saying you were pulling me but it doesn't just mean to say you can

:07:59.:08:03.

give them one of them, so I think he could be in trouble. Colin Nish

:08:03.:08:06.

you know well. Despite the fact this was a terrific save from

:08:06.:08:09.

Forestieri, he'll be pretty disappointed he didn't tuck this

:08:09.:08:15.

chance away at a point in the game when Dundee were doing well. That

:08:15.:08:25.
:08:25.:08:27.

was a fantastic save. He headed it pretty much straight at him. Kevin

:08:27.:08:31.

Pietersen -- Forest of Deaner will be glad he had the chance.

:08:31.:08:38.

Particularly when you're on top you don't get too many chances against

:08:38.:08:42.

rp -- against Celtic. What was puzzling me at that point in the

:08:42.:08:51.

game is why Dundee didn't start the first half like that. Celtic were

:08:51.:08:58.

in midfield. I don't know if it was a combination in the second half. I

:08:58.:09:02.

know it's a silly thing - maybe the manager getting in telling them to

:09:02.:09:09.

get five yards closer, trying to squeeze up against them in midfield.

:09:09.:09:13.

Dundee had the lad's chunk in the second half. They were unlucky to

:09:13.:09:20.

go 2-0 behind. They had the combination of failing to take

:09:20.:09:28.

their chances and defensive mistakes. That's a fabulous move.

:09:28.:09:31.

It's a fabulous touch for Gary Hooper, and he's matched up with

:09:31.:09:37.

the run, the touch and the perfect finish. Again, it's very

:09:37.:09:40.

disappointing for Dundee because it is a straight ball, again, what a

:09:40.:09:48.

finish. Two great goals from Celtic. We're not denying that, but we're

:09:48.:09:53.

saying Benedictus shouldn't have given the goal away. Taking nothing

:09:53.:09:59.

away from Gary Hooper, the tough, the awareness - he had everything.

:09:59.:10:06.

Motherwell is back at the top end SPL, came to an end in Paisley.

:10:06.:10:16.
:10:16.:10:25.

They were looking to get kick and Jonny Hayes. There's

:10:25.:10:31.

Shaughnessy - Randolph and the second attempt is missed by Niall

:10:31.:10:41.
:10:41.:10:42.

McGinn again, and he certainly hasn't missed much of late. Flicked

:10:42.:10:52.
:10:52.:11:10.

away by Michael Fallon. It bounced Murphie - a good ball and 1-0,

:11:10.:11:14.

Hateley. Inside the ninth minute, Motherwell ahead. He doesn't score

:11:14.:11:18.

too many headers, Hateley. His old man Mark would have been proud of

:11:18.:11:28.
:11:28.:11:35.

Gavin Rea picks out Fallon, well struck. Was probably never going to

:11:35.:11:45.
:11:45.:11:51.

find its way in, but it had to be Motherwell. Here is Ojamma, a burst

:11:51.:12:01.
:12:01.:12:02.

of pace from Nicky Law. It's Jamie Murphie - make that 2-0. 31 minutes

:12:02.:12:10.

on the clock. Langfield is beaten again. And Motherwell are two goals

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

in front. He reached out with the left hand, Langfield, but he

:12:20.:12:30.
:12:30.:12:36.

Aberdeen back in the game. Just three minutes after Motherwell took

:12:36.:12:44.

a two-goal lead, Aberdeen peg them back, and Randolph was not going to

:12:44.:12:54.
:12:54.:13:04.

stop that one, a sweet strike from youngster Frank Lampard -- Frances,

:13:04.:13:10.

Jamie Murphie, great composure, great goal. It's 3-1 Motherwell on

:13:10.:13:15.

halftime two, goals for Jamie Murphie. It's the fourth time this

:13:15.:13:20.

season he's been at the double, and this one puts the home team in a

:13:20.:13:23.

really strong position looking for revenge for their Scottish Cup

:13:23.:13:31.

defeat here. A good take by Darren Randolph, and Motherwell are

:13:31.:13:37.

quickly on the move with Nicky Law looking to catch out Aberdeen.

:13:37.:13:47.
:13:47.:13:47.

Henrik Ojamaa beaten Reyes as if he isn't there. Three players around

:13:47.:13:53.

him, still has it, brilliant from Ojamma, and there's number four ten

:13:53.:14:01.

minutes after the restart, and that surely must be game over. It's

:14:01.:14:06.

Michael Higdon, but it was all about Ojamma, the little estonian

:14:06.:14:10.

unplayable when he's on this sort of form, and he had Aberdeen tied

:14:10.:14:16.

in knots, and the cut-back was skilfully bit away in the end by

:14:16.:14:26.
:14:26.:14:31.

Ojamaa has a chance. Down he goes, and that's a penalty. Tripped by

:14:31.:14:35.

Clark Robertson, who gets a yellow card just to compound the misery,

:14:35.:14:45.

not too much doubt about it. Jamie Murphie on the hat-trick. Oh,

:14:45.:14:53.

that's a really poor effort. What an opportunity for a hat-trick from

:14:53.:15:01.

Murphie, but it was tame. A lovely flick from Ojamma. Nicky Law in

:15:01.:15:07.

goal - there's Ojamma, touched around the post by Langfield, could

:15:07.:15:11.

so easily have been number five for Motherwell, but they'll settle for

:15:11.:15:16.

4-1. I mentioned revenge there for Motherwell losing to Aberdeen in

:15:16.:15:19.

the Scottish Cup. That was a thumping win against a team of

:15:19.:15:22.

Aberdeen's quality, wasn't it was, especially Aberdeen going in

:15:22.:15:28.

there beating them in the Scottish Cup. I was in London last week.

:15:28.:15:32.

They said the first goal was all- important. It would be difficult

:15:32.:15:36.

getting behind them, but he said if we score first, which Aberdeen did,

:15:36.:15:43.

that's the game wrapped up. Jamie Murphie caught the eye. He has been

:15:43.:15:47.

doing it a lot recently - he finds room, and he can finish. He finds a

:15:47.:15:51.

position. He's at the heart of pretty much all that was good in

:15:51.:15:55.

Motherwell yesterday. And if you see him moving, he fixes it behind.

:15:55.:16:00.

He checks. He's constantly moving, and again, he comes - the goal side

:16:00.:16:06.

of the ball, takes a fantastic touch and a great finish. His

:16:06.:16:10.

movement was fantastic all day. That's good playing and a great

:16:10.:16:14.

goal, but he scored against Aberdeen in the Cup up there. Maybe

:16:14.:16:18.

Langfield - Verny should be doing more on his left foot, and he

:16:18.:16:25.

wouldn't have scored that goal. I think he's getting bored with the

:16:25.:16:29.

transfer talk. It's not yet happened. He's maybe wondering in

:16:29.:16:33.

the team time is right That's it. When you're playing well and

:16:33.:16:39.

scoring goals, you're always gob going to attract attention. On that,

:16:39.:16:44.

he's had a fantastic game. It's always going to bring attention to

:16:44.:16:48.

you. That penalty may have done him out of that move. We're not trying

:16:48.:16:52.

to talk players out of Motherwell but Ojamma is another - the Polish

:16:52.:16:57.

team are interested in him at the moment. He's a 21-year-old Estonian.

:16:57.:17:00.

He has some impact, a bit like Jamie Murphie. With the two of them

:17:00.:17:04.

on form, no wonder Aberdeen are in trouble. Everybody expected him

:17:04.:17:09.

because when he first came he, scored a lot of goals, but he's not

:17:09.:17:12.

natural goal scorer, but he's got so much about him, so much energy,

:17:13.:17:17.

very direct and brings so much to the team. You see the service there

:17:17.:17:21.

- Michael Higdon has got there has done great and Jamie Murphie. It's

:17:21.:17:27.

a striker's dream, two players like that creating chances for you.

:17:27.:17:31.

Aberdeen under-achieving, Billy, when you look at the quality

:17:31.:17:38.

they've got in the squad? I think they have a few injuries. They have

:17:38.:17:41.

a few injuries. I think they've still got a good team. I think

:17:41.:17:45.

they'll finish up there this season. I think they'll come through it,

:17:45.:17:50.

just a sticky patch at this moment in time. The action stretched on

:17:50.:18:00.
:18:00.:18:07.

for the best part of ten hours must up league win in the August

:18:07.:18:12.

and Gavin Gunning got a bar to the power but stopped. The applause

:18:12.:18:16.

with free kick Andy Gunning be earmarked getting things all his

:18:16.:18:23.

own weight. With the gull coming to just two minutes there was plenty

:18:23.:18:29.

of Ortega constant you get back into the match. The Dundee United

:18:29.:18:34.

keeper had to go arctic from another crack at that. But teams

:18:34.:18:43.

were coming into this one of the back of defeats. The hounds died

:18:43.:18:48.

were enjoying plenty of possession continued to quit chances. There

:18:48.:18:55.

have the Highlands looked. While this doesn't goalkeeper was busy,

:18:55.:19:05.
:19:05.:19:14.

so, to his opposite number. Getting it it'd be up. There are a bit

:19:14.:19:22.

McCracken also it looked as burning was mucking. The second half

:19:22.:19:32.
:19:32.:19:41.

started as it has triggered a goal. the ball hit into his own net.

:19:41.:19:47.

After the equaliser, the visitors almost grabbed another, a run down

:19:47.:19:54.

the wing, clever from McLean to set the goal up, but chess kneeac threw

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

himself at the shot. It was more to the Dundee United manager, what

:20:10.:20:19.

he'd have given for Gunning to get another, but Craig cleared well. At

:20:19.:20:26.

the other end, MacKay set up a St Johnstone chance, his ball nicely

:20:26.:20:30.

flicked on. Tady powered through but the keeper kept out his shot.

:20:30.:20:34.

Dundee United mid table at the moment. I know you don't watch an

:20:34.:20:38.

awful lot of Scottish football in Canada, but are they a team you

:20:38.:20:41.

would expect to be further up the table? Definitely. I think if you

:20:41.:20:46.

look at the players they've got, the forwards they've got are always

:20:46.:20:54.

amongst the goals and I think they must - miss MacKay. I have seen him

:20:54.:21:01.

a lot over the last year-and-a-half. He's a great supply for them.

:21:01.:21:05.

you see the tightly packed league table, both of those with a run of

:21:05.:21:10.

wins would put themselves up there. I think there's a lot of teams in

:21:10.:21:14.

the league that could run - really fly up the league. I think Dundee

:21:14.:21:17.

United - I have to say I think they're struggling to get the best

:21:17.:21:27.
:21:27.:21:33.

When there exists, get Twitter back in the meeting up the signals to up

:21:33.:21:43.
:21:43.:21:44.

its affecting the again as a whole. To go at they are going to get

:21:44.:21:52.

going to village. Gavin Gunning could have had a hat-trick of

:21:52.:22:02.
:22:02.:22:06.

headers of. Five goals six chances. He a big sulk free. Low at this. It

:22:06.:22:16.
:22:16.:22:24.

was not just Giggsy he broke. He scored one, could have reaped five

:22:24.:22:28.

or six to Frances Cary the match. What de Boer spin Johnston, they

:22:28.:22:38.
:22:38.:22:41.

could do with a win? They were a bit lucky. United by Barepot. Steve

:22:41.:22:46.

Lomas de, there is a positive, we won a have. There have been too

:22:46.:22:52.

many draws for strokes to know but they are playing up. Hearts were

:22:52.:22:57.

looking to extend their three-match unbeaten run at Kilmarnock

:22:57.:23:07.
:23:07.:23:09.

yesterday it. Kilmarnock and aspirations as well.

:23:09.:23:16.

Kilmarnock drew here against any and at the weekend. The kitchen are

:23:16.:23:24.

up and dignity, there are on the air here. Up hold on. There was a

:23:24.:23:29.

foul as well according to the ref riba. It will be a free kick

:23:29.:23:39.
:23:39.:24:02.

up. A wave from the FA Cup, away from Nelson. James Dixon. Always is

:24:02.:24:09.

that he won a penalty. Here is Eguren will challenge go Andy

:24:09.:24:19.
:24:19.:24:19.

Webster. Not after Giggs rates ASDA t. Liam Kelly, who has been Denly,

:24:19.:24:26.

from the Distin isn't. Continues to grip. Back in the track, a free up

:24:26.:24:36.
:24:36.:24:39.

suspension a back arm the middle. That was a good opportunity

:24:39.:24:49.
:24:49.:25:07.

met this. This is a good opportunity. Driver again - seen

:25:07.:25:16.

plenty of the ball in this game. That's Sutton, poked away. There

:25:16.:25:26.
:25:26.:25:29.

was a penalty here for Hearts. Touil, a former player of

:25:29.:25:36.

Kilmarnock, of course. Driver. He fancied this himself here. Bell's

:25:36.:25:42.

equal to it. He's having another good season, Cammy Bell. That's

:25:42.:25:52.
:25:52.:26:00.

Smith. Cammy Bell is taking a really sore one. He was committed

:26:00.:26:05.

to at least trying to win the ball back. John Sutton goes into the

:26:05.:26:11.

book. Bell's going to be OK, thankfully. Hearts will feel

:26:11.:26:16.

aggrieved to be behind in the scheme. They put plenty into it and

:26:16.:26:21.

are continuing to do so with Paul McGowan. Away by Nelson. Touil!

:26:21.:26:31.
:26:31.:26:31.

Bell again. The danger is snuffed out. It was the little Moroccan on

:26:31.:26:39.

the left peg. Shiels in the stand - well documented and on the phone as

:26:39.:26:47.

well. Jimmy Nickel in the fore- picture there urging his troops on.

:26:47.:26:50.

Kilmarnock continuing to lead, but they've got a big problem here.

:26:50.:26:56.

It's Callum Patterson in own-goal, and that is an anti-climax. A bit

:26:56.:27:01.

of afters as well between Fowler and Patterson, but what an

:27:01.:27:06.

opportunity this was - could put it away from Nelson having robbed

:27:06.:27:12.

Sosoko. He needed to go around the goal keeper, and he didn't. That's

:27:12.:27:18.

poor from Zalkiukas. Down goes Heffernan. It is a free kick and

:27:18.:27:26.

Zalkiukas off here. Steven McClain pulling him over - yellow only, and

:27:26.:27:29.

presumably that's because Jimmy McDonald had dealt with the

:27:29.:27:32.

situation. Lots of supporters of lots of teams

:27:32.:27:36.

will be dreading the transfer window and wondering which of their

:27:36.:27:39.

stars will be departing, maybe Hearts more than most because they

:27:39.:27:44.

probably need the money more than most. You see Andy Driver playing

:27:44.:27:47.

there. He's a player that's linked with speculation over the last two,

:27:47.:27:53.

three years. He's had a fantastic game. He's had crosses and things.

:27:53.:27:59.

I'm sure January can't come quicker. Liam Kelly is a fancied player as

:27:59.:28:05.

well. Trying to sell a few on this programme! They have talent in this

:28:05.:28:08.

country. That's why they're spoken about. These players you're talking

:28:08.:28:13.

about, Rob, they're showing it - Jamie Murphie, Kelly, players like

:28:13.:28:19.

that he has a lot going on in his life over the last year but

:28:19.:28:24.

certainly a good player. Scotland team-mate Andy Webster won't be too

:28:24.:28:31.

happy looking back on this. Yeah, a tricky winger running out of the

:28:31.:28:40.

box. It's a stonewall penalty, dispatched really well by Kelly.

:28:40.:28:45.

That's the position James Dayton puts you in, the way he plays. Are

:28:46.:28:50.

you surprised he doesn't start more for Kilmarnock? Yeah, I have been

:28:50.:28:55.

speaking of it to a few people. Kenny needs to be more consistent.

:28:55.:28:59.

Sometimes you get that with wingers, but James Dayton on form every game

:28:59.:29:03.

I have seen him has caused teams problems. I don't know why he

:29:03.:29:08.

doesn't get a more regular start. Hearts are very defensive with

:29:08.:29:11.

Zalkiukas in defence, but they struggle to get goals that seems to

:29:11.:29:14.

be a recurring problem. I don't think anybody scored more than four

:29:14.:29:24.
:29:24.:29:33.

London what looked the lapped of gulls that day has up. That is a

:29:33.:29:42.

problem. The couple also ignore it expects. Paterson for that is what

:29:42.:29:51.

it away. Yes, 22 apiece. Greatest fear experienced a key wicket. Some

:29:51.:29:58.

body with pace does not think, getting caught. Maybe because he is

:29:58.:30:03.

not a natural striker but looking back, he is thinking, why did I

:30:03.:30:12.

hits it a lick? There was a Boxing Day batting at Easter Road. Once

:30:12.:30:22.
:30:22.:30:29.

granted would have to be Hibs there was little in the wake of

:30:30.:30:34.

Christmas cheer. Bits delivery from the corner. The kids captain did

:30:34.:30:42.

not good enough on it. The first half was bereft of action. In fact,

:30:42.:30:46.

the game was almost an hour in when there was something to get extra to

:30:46.:30:53.

go back. These doctors to reduce Britain's the header past the

:30:53.:31:01.

keeper, Ben Williams. The captain low be pleased with insults. Were

:31:01.:31:11.
:31:11.:31:17.

Ross County about to end there were average month could not keep his

:31:17.:31:22.

hair up. December that its box been a good month with Eastern we are

:31:23.:31:26.

equipped. While this game may have been a drop of, they were creating

:31:26.:31:36.
:31:36.:31:49.

chance. He does go An Tiki but formerly of Hibs was tested Eggen.

:31:49.:31:54.

After pushing the... It into the path of Dail he was then beaten but

:31:54.:32:02.

the goal Bo was disallowed for our spirit. The referee raised the flak

:32:03.:32:10.

the gull was denied. Hibs continued to use it for the equaliser. There

:32:10.:32:19.

is to be easy take off. Another good degree Bournemouth and it not

:32:19.:32:25.

a great after minutes for Hibs. Russ Garrity t nine points clear

:32:26.:32:32.

are bottom spot. You do with hits. A great for us

:32:32.:32:42.
:32:42.:32:52.

have our the season but telling off obviously if you go through spells

:32:52.:32:56.

like that, if you want to stay at the top of the league you're going

:32:56.:33:06.
:33:06.:33:08.

to have to start winning games again. They have to keep him

:33:08.:33:13.

because of the goals he scored - Doyle is doing OK, like anybody

:33:13.:33:17.

going through the sticky patch, Hibs need a win. We were talking

:33:17.:33:21.

about how closely matched the teams are, but I think sometimes if you

:33:21.:33:27.

lose a couple, the confidence is down. If you win a couple, you have

:33:27.:33:32.

confidence. Hibs will go right back up again. Ritchie is not a player

:33:32.:33:36.

known for scoring header goals. was a fantastic header, whether he

:33:36.:33:42.

meant it or not is another question, but he found the space in the box,

:33:42.:33:45.

and when he's 18 yards out, he's pretty much trying to direct it

:33:45.:33:50.

towards the goal, and it turned out to be a fantastic finish. It ended

:33:50.:33:54.

a spell of nine matches - the win for Ross County in two months.

:33:54.:33:59.

Really important he gets that nine- point gap in at the moment. To get

:33:59.:34:02.

that result is a huge bid of confidence for them. It didn't

:34:02.:34:07.

surprise me when they went in front and held on. That's when they had

:34:07.:34:13.

that 40-odd unbeaten run. When they went in the lead at Easter Road,

:34:13.:34:18.

that's what they did - soaked up the pressure and came away with a

:34:18.:34:28.
:34:28.:34:40.

valuable three points. St Mirren McGowan has it right side up. He

:34:40.:34:47.

goes for goal, and that's to silence him. What a strike from

:34:47.:34:56.

Imrie. In the last SPL game of the season, and Dougie plants it in the

:34:56.:35:06.
:35:06.:35:11.

goes. It's netted against Hearts and Dundee at that end. Craig

:35:11.:35:21.
:35:21.:35:32.

comes in, drives the ball against Craig Sampson, another good save

:35:32.:35:35.

from the keeper. The Brisbane buddies - I think you're supposed

:35:35.:35:42.

to go to Australia for Christmas. He rattles the frame. Reguero was

:35:42.:35:52.
:35:52.:36:02.

beaten here. It was a great effort should have scored. It was an

:36:02.:36:05.

excellent chance for Cally Thistle number eight. Four goals this term,

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

should have been five. Jones towards Shinnie to MacKay. MacKay,

:36:16.:36:21.

Foran leads it off, good touch away, back to MacKay, a lovely ball

:36:21.:36:26.

across, the header - came from Doran, and again, protecting his

:36:26.:36:36.
:36:36.:36:49.

post was Sampson. A great build-up It's Shinnie - to his brother and

:36:49.:36:55.

Shinnie escaped to Gary Teale. He hit it and hit it beautifully. The

:36:55.:36:58.

equaliser for Cally Thistle has been coming, and it comes to the

:36:58.:37:08.
:37:08.:37:15.

boot of Shinnie, ever present this Teale clips it, and the header and

:37:15.:37:22.

Steven Thompson has scored, a purple cross from Gary Teale teal

:37:22.:37:27.

and Steven Thompson makes no mistake, ten minutes gone in the

:37:27.:37:30.

second half, and it's Steven Thompson with the perfect header.

:37:30.:37:37.

Reguero couldn't keep it out. A corner to cross. A couple of

:37:37.:37:42.

headers away. That could break on Doran. The shot - it's off the

:37:42.:37:47.

goalkeeper. Ritchie Foran with the header, 2-2. They have come from

:37:47.:37:51.

behind again with a quarter of the match left and Foran with the

:37:51.:37:59.

header. It was MacKay who left it, nearly took Foran's head off, a

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

save, and it's clear. A lovely play, hit the one-two, it was almost

:38:18.:38:28.
:38:28.:38:33.

perfect, and the goalkeeper getting Gary Teale. Saints looking to go

:38:33.:38:38.

ahead a third time. Guy. It's off the cross bar this time, and it's

:38:39.:38:47.

away - eventually by Alan Pardew -- Doran. Not once but twice it hits

:38:47.:38:57.
:38:57.:39:00.

problems. That could fall on to Gary Teale - rattles it. It's

:39:00.:39:07.

offside. Lewis Guy is offside, but only just, disappointment for St

:39:07.:39:11.

Mirren. Gary Teale hits this, but he just takes a step into the yard

:39:11.:39:21.
:39:21.:39:25.

one in, Reguero with the save, got it in the second attempt, and a

:39:25.:39:30.

good hit from Gary Teale. As you scan the SPL table in your

:39:30.:39:34.

luxury mansion accommodation in Vancouver you must be aware how

:39:35.:39:38.

Inverness have done in the season but maybe not too surprised about

:39:38.:39:42.

the prominent part - Shinnie is playing for them, having watched

:39:42.:39:47.

him as a youngster at Rangers. has been one of the main reasons

:39:47.:39:52.

for them doing well. I have always liked Andy as a player. He's very,

:39:52.:39:55.

very comfortable with the ball, plays intelligent club football.

:39:55.:40:00.

That's a great strike. He worked it great into position before that and

:40:00.:40:05.

obviously he's flourishing getting regular first-team football now.

:40:05.:40:09.

got bored from picking out MacKay every week scoring out so many

:40:09.:40:14.

goals, Shinnie especially - he went through a spell he wasn't scoring.

:40:14.:40:18.

Now he's back. In Dundee as well. He's always one of those guys who

:40:18.:40:22.

gets in the box. Sometimes when they get in the boxes they don't

:40:22.:40:27.

take much part in it. But he's got so much game awareness, he's always

:40:27.:40:30.

getting involved, a little one-two, finding himself in the box.

:40:30.:40:33.

Yesterday's goal and other ones were showing he can certainly

:40:33.:40:37.

finish. If you're a keeper playing Inverness at the moment you know

:40:37.:40:41.

you're going to be busy and Sampson certainly rose to the challenge.

:40:41.:40:46.

Yeah. They're 1-0 up here, and he's made a great save there from

:40:47.:40:50.

distance. He's had another few saves as well, which at the time

:40:50.:40:55.

kept his team with a 1-0 lead. Here, again, that's a fantastic save.

:40:55.:40:58.

It's close range and a great reaction save from him. He's got

:40:59.:41:02.

himself into the Scotland squad. That's heightened his belief in

:41:02.:41:06.

himself, Billy. Of course it has. I think both of them - you're talking

:41:06.:41:11.

about - Shinnie and Sampson, I worked with them both, really pro's,

:41:11.:41:15.

boys who wanted to do well, a little bit of maturity and

:41:15.:41:19.

experience playing games has brought them on tonnes, and in the

:41:19.:41:23.

international set-up for the two of them has just capped it off for

:41:23.:41:27.

them. It was a game either of the two teams could have gone on to one

:41:27.:41:30.

because those were Inverness shot at goal. These were St Mirren

:41:30.:41:34.

efforts, three of them back off the frame. This was Graham Kenny's free

:41:34.:41:38.

kick. That would have put them 2-0 up at the time, very unfortunate

:41:38.:41:43.

for them. He's got a fantastic set piece delivering there, again, the

:41:43.:41:47.

keeper's up there. This is Lewis Guy hitting the post, then the bar

:41:47.:41:52.

a few seconds later. I thought Inverness would win this yesterday,

:41:52.:41:58.

but I think St Mirren looking at this have been unlucky. Ronald had

:41:58.:42:03.

the last free kick, then Lewis Guy had the cross bar, counting

:42:03.:42:09.

themselves extremely unlucky. second one, he did fancy a score.

:42:09.:42:14.

Looking back on it, he had it on target, then the header - seeing

:42:14.:42:19.

that back he would have thought I should have scored. St Mirren were

:42:19.:42:24.

a team your name was being linked with in terms of a possible loan

:42:24.:42:28.

move from Vancouver. That a starter? No, to be honest, there

:42:28.:42:31.

has been no contact between any club and my club. There has been a

:42:31.:42:35.

little bit of speculation, but again, that's something I would be

:42:35.:42:39.

interested in, but I think there's got to be some kind of deal and

:42:39.:42:42.

link with Vancouver and some kind of contact, but there has been

:42:42.:42:46.

nothing in it at all. How is Vancouver going for you so far?

:42:46.:42:51.

Sounds like heaven to me. It's a great place to live. For me, it was

:42:51.:42:56.

a pretty average kind of three, four months for me, like, with the

:42:56.:43:00.

football. I was coming off the back a long, close season with a season

:43:00.:43:05.

finish with Cardiff, and I never really got going. I think we only

:43:05.:43:08.

had ten, 12 games to go. At the time, I was maybe just getting

:43:09.:43:12.

going, the season was finished. For me, it was a disappointing -

:43:12.:43:15.

personally, a disappointing three, four months. Hopefully we can put

:43:15.:43:19.

that right this year. Will you keep on playing for Scotland? I hope so,

:43:19.:43:23.

as long as the new manager picks me, whoever that is that is going to

:43:23.:43:29.

come in in the next few months. Hopefully, I'll be selected because

:43:29.:43:39.
:43:39.:44:14.

I have quite a bit to offer the next Sunday night, back at our

:44:14.:44:19.
