This could be something quite sensational. It is outstanding. An

:00:07.:00:18.

absolute beauty. Oh, yes! Right here, right now this is

:00:19.:00:44.

history. After the Scottish cup excitement the Ladbrokes premiership

:00:45.:00:48.

is back. Lots of great play, great goals and the odd red card. Scott

:00:49.:00:54.

Macdonald might have a few of that along with Stephen Thompson. The

:00:55.:01:04.

current Celtic signed he called... Watching at Celtic Park photos.

:01:05.:01:14.

Problems up Rodber Celtic. Two plays it is out from knee and calf

:01:15.:01:22.

injuries. Armstrong is replaced by Callum MacGregor as Celtic look to

:01:23.:01:31.

become record breakers. New signing has a five strain. -- acai strain.

:01:32.:01:39.

has a five strain. -- a ai strain. Hearts have only two away wins in

:01:40.:01:40.

the premiership so far. I look at the officials, Bjorn

:01:41.:02:14.

Johnsen. Here come Celtic. Options, one of them is Callum MacGregor.

:02:15.:02:17.

CHEERING . He wasn't meant to be starting

:02:18.:02:28.

today. But he is pushing Celtic ever closer to that record. Colour

:02:29.:02:33.

MacGregor's third goal of the season. A smart counter attacking

:02:34.:02:41.

move by this side. Lovely first touch by McGregor. The second was in

:02:42.:02:48.

the. Celtic league again. -- lead again. Coming just after this when

:02:49.:02:56.

Bjorn Johnsen was challenged. The other player did dive in on that

:02:57.:03:06.

tackle. Full. Billy McNeill, the legendary former Celtic skipper who

:03:07.:03:19.

hoisted a cup in 1967. Not the west the livery, either. It is heading

:03:20.:03:26.

just over the bar. -- not the worst delivery either. Celtic have

:03:27.:03:31.

dominated this first half. Close to a leveller just before the half-time

:03:32.:03:32.

whistle. James Forrest get a break of the

:03:33.:03:48.

ball. In the number two. A fabulous recovery by Liam Smith. Two mythic

:03:49.:03:56.

defending. You put your mortgage in James Forrest making it to them. --

:03:57.:04:07.

two mythic defending. -- wonderful defending. The shout box and ball.

:04:08.:04:12.

The manager has his arm stretched as well. It is difficult but anything

:04:13.:04:20.

to be done about that. The Celtic supporters are celebrating the

:04:21.:04:22.

greatest moment in their club's history. Can he make it happen the

:04:23.:04:33.

Herts? This was saved by Craig Gordon. Isa Penny make it happen the

:04:34.:04:39.

Hearts? This is a big opportunity for Hearts.

:04:40.:04:44.

Better to go to the top right corner. That is a big opportunity

:04:45.:04:53.

for Hearts. They might not get another. Celtic are looking to make

:04:54.:05:01.

them pay. Here is Kieran Tierney. He has cut it across. And Scott

:05:02.:05:09.

Sinclair cannot make it to. -- cannot make a two. That would have

:05:10.:05:15.

been just like Celtic, let off on one end and sport up the other end.

:05:16.:05:25.

That doesn't stay up the second time of asking, Scott Sinclair wraps up

:05:26.:05:35.

the points that Celtic, surely. Scott Sinclair's 14 of the season

:05:36.:05:42.

will surely down Hearts. Great boiling by Kieran Tierney. Jack

:05:43.:05:48.

Hamilton with a saving from his own man. He was alive to the situation.

:05:49.:06:07.

Robert's lovely flick. Here is Kieran Tierney again. It is three

:06:08.:06:24.

and easy for the record breakers. Brendan Rodgers' Celtic will move

:06:25.:06:30.

ahead of the club's greatest ever side in an unbeaten start to this

:06:31.:06:37.

domestic season. It will move now on 227 games. Nobody can get the better

:06:38.:06:47.

of them in Scottish bubble. -- in Scottish football. Scott Sinclair

:06:48.:06:52.

has Henderson to his right. Celtic are looking for the fourth here but

:06:53.:06:58.

it is blocked. This doesn't look good. Hearts can only hope that this

:06:59.:07:03.

won't be long-term, but it does not look good and they have used all

:07:04.:07:09.

their subs. Four minutes of injury time is about to start and here come

:07:10.:07:13.

Celtic, McGregor who got them under way. Celtic have a penalty. He went

:07:14.:07:27.

in on the challenge. And Hearts' afternoon is going from bad to

:07:28.:07:32.

worse. Scott Sinclair has a chance to round things off. A chance to ice

:07:33.:07:37.

the cake. Which he truly does! CHEERING

:07:38.:07:43.

Was it ever really in any doubt? It is party time the Celtic. They will

:07:44.:07:50.

have to wait a while longer before they are crowned champions yet

:07:51.:07:52.

again, but this will do for now. 202 days on from the shop, they have

:07:53.:08:06.

opened the Rodgers' in there. He history has been made, their 17th

:08:07.:08:13.

league win on the bounce. Moves them ahead of the greatest team Celtic

:08:14.:08:22.

produced. It finishes Celtic for, Hearts zero. They before they well.

:08:23.:08:27.

They deserve the result today. Of course it takes them out on their

:08:28.:08:32.

own in terms of domestic league with an unbeaten record. A huge

:08:33.:08:36.

achievement. If you think of the great history of Celtic, they do

:08:37.:08:41.

have a big history over hundred and 29 years to be the team that goes

:08:42.:08:46.

out on its own. The blaze can be hugely proud. We were OK in the game

:08:47.:08:50.

and improved second half. Asthma with the players can be hugely

:08:51.:08:55.

proud. We had some good possession. We had a bit of control. We had a

:08:56.:09:01.

moment. In these games and in the stadiums with good teams you have to

:09:02.:09:05.

step up and live in that moment. We didn't do that today and we suffered

:09:06.:09:10.

some consequences from that. And so Brendan Rodgers' Celtic signed break

:09:11.:09:18.

that Lisbon Lions record. Huge congratulations but then 27 domestic

:09:19.:09:23.

matches an break him. It has been a nominal them said Bart these other

:09:24.:09:30.

statistics. -- it is been a fantastic season for them so far,

:09:31.:09:36.

here are the statistics... Can this Celtic side go unbeaten all season?

:09:37.:09:41.

Abramoff Mott called beat. I was asked in November and wasn't sure.

:09:42.:09:48.

In February and wondering who is keen to stop them. They had seven

:09:49.:09:57.

players that would normally start. They didn't go and beat one of the

:09:58.:10:01.

better teams in the league, bought - zero. I didn't see it happening,

:10:02.:10:07.

anyone stopping them. Can anybody in Scotland? It would take a big

:10:08.:10:10.

performance and on the day a couple of decisions to go you are way. --

:10:11.:10:19.

to go your way. To make seven changes and still win shows the

:10:20.:10:25.

depth of the squad. They had to bring game Callum McGregor, and he

:10:26.:10:33.

scored. He had McGregor. He travelled the length of the pitch,

:10:34.:10:38.

but the Hearts player didn't track the run. Sinclair does the rest,

:10:39.:10:49.

wide area. The player doesn't make the ball go wide, and McGregor goes

:10:50.:10:56.

to an scores. Sinclair started as an emergency centre forward but they

:10:57.:10:59.

moved him out the left and that was the difference. He performed well

:11:00.:11:03.

from there. That is an excellent passing and a good finish as well

:11:04.:11:10.

from McGregor. A question, if one player is valued at 30 million, how

:11:11.:11:18.

much is Kieran Tierney Web? Just as much. He is the best young player in

:11:19.:11:25.

Scotland, possibly in decades, that is not an understatement. A

:11:26.:11:28.

fantastic ball, he should have scored. Here is the any making that

:11:29.:11:35.

one down the left-hand side. An unbelievable ball across the face,

:11:36.:11:41.

causing panic. He should play this with his right rather than his left.

:11:42.:11:48.

Well done Sinclair. Almost a carbon copy, not sure about the field back.

:11:49.:11:54.

He is just such an outstanding talent, I don't see him having any

:11:55.:11:59.

weaknesses. We have seen these attacking clips, but defensively is

:12:00.:12:03.

very good. He pounds his challengers really well. He has impressed me

:12:04.:12:08.

this season. -- he timed his challengers. We don't want away, he

:12:09.:12:15.

seems committed to Celtic. He is living the dream, he Celtic through

:12:16.:12:18.

and through. He celebrates every single goal and he enjoys it. He's a

:12:19.:12:23.

dream that the club and the fans. They love their money gets bums on

:12:24.:12:31.

seats. Badly for Hearts. How did you rate that overall hearts

:12:32.:12:35.

performance? Average at best. But Ian Cathro, four points from 18

:12:36.:12:43.

available which makes Wednesday night even bigger, they play Rangers

:12:44.:12:47.

and that becomes a massive game for Hearts. Did you learn anything today

:12:48.:12:52.

about Hearts that you didn't know already? Not particularly, it is

:12:53.:12:57.

told to go to Celtic Park. Especially this year, Celtic being

:12:58.:13:02.

on the unbeaten run that they are. The first half was disappointing,

:13:03.:13:05.

there was nothing in the game then Celtic went ahead. I think Martin

:13:06.:13:10.

had a great chance to make it 1-1, and you never know, but Celtic are

:13:11.:13:14.

that strong that when they go up the event it is game over. Celtic Manor

:13:15.:13:20.

is clear at the top. He is Aberdeen with the chance to go second if they

:13:21.:13:26.

can see Dundee. They are looking for ever ten to form after crashing out

:13:27.:13:32.

of Scottish court. -- the Scottish cup. Common green and an changed

:13:33.:13:39.

Aberdeen sign. Neatly into the path. He was gone

:13:40.:14:09.

for the shot. It is dumped clear by Mark Reynolds.

:14:10.:14:16.

McGinn's corner. That is way off the line. Great control here by Mark

:14:17.:14:29.

Reynolds. Steadying himself. Aberdeen continued to press. Logan

:14:30.:14:40.

makes the run. That is a great ball. Doesn't get a touch. Ryan Jack, will

:14:41.:14:47.

be happy to try and shepherd this away. Shinnie. Great play, nobody

:14:48.:15:03.

got a touch. Aberdeen are still pushing haze. McGinn scoring

:15:04.:15:15.

himself. Adam Rooney withdrew his head, realised he wasn't getting

:15:16.:15:19.

there and it's nearly snuck in. Good goalkeeping. McGinn is the obvious

:15:20.:15:32.

threat. Exactly to be expected. The Dundee goalkeeper was certainly

:15:33.:15:38.

dropping in. McGinn and Hayes, it is hazy swings it in that time. -- it

:15:39.:15:48.

is hazy swings it in that time. McGinn taking on Russ he's going to

:15:49.:15:54.

drag it back again. Lovely ball. Aberdeen make the breakthrough at

:15:55.:16:03.

the 20 mine -- after 29 minutes. And it is Ryan Jack, his first goal in

:16:04.:16:08.

over 23 months. Great cross over and Ryan Jack. He sends it long. That is

:16:09.:16:24.

beautifully through. A brilliant first touch. That second put is on

:16:25.:16:34.

target and brilliant from Rooney. The first touch killed it. Shot away

:16:35.:16:42.

with the second. Centre long. That is brilliant, again. That is

:16:43.:16:54.

brilliant from Niall McGinn. That is a wonderful strike. Scott Bain had

:16:55.:17:03.

no chance. Goal of the season. Don't be caught again. Chance for Maclean.

:17:04.:17:11.

A quick throw from Rooney and no wonder Scott Bain is frustrated.

:17:12.:17:18.

Simply in behind the full-back and Bain to the rescue again. McGinn and

:17:19.:17:29.

Hayes, twin tormentors this evening. That comes back onto Shinnie. It

:17:30.:17:35.

came back very quickly. Don't be again have their goalkeeper to

:17:36.:17:41.

thank. -- Dundee again have their goalkeeper to thank. Beat it with

:17:42.:17:51.

the thought that time. A better finish was deserved. That is a

:17:52.:18:00.

lovely little ball forward. Hayes looks across. 3-0 Aberdeen. It is a

:18:01.:18:15.

doesn't of the season, now. The tormentors have done Aberdeen's

:18:16.:18:21.

said. Aberdeen are on course for their biggest win against Dundee for

:18:22.:18:25.

more than a decade. The ball was over the top, brilliantly timed, the

:18:26.:18:30.

power was in the cross. 3-0 Aberdeen. Once we made the

:18:31.:18:37.

breakthrough I thought we brought some real quality and I didn't think

:18:38.:18:40.

that we looked anything other than that we were going to win the game.

:18:41.:18:47.

We can't do the basics properly, the third goal sums it up. The ball

:18:48.:18:51.

comes into the box and is nobly within five yards. The make, we have

:18:52.:18:55.

to try make it as difficult as possible. We didn't do that. It's

:18:56.:19:01.

not so much the contract offer, it is maybe weighing up what he wants

:19:02.:19:07.

to do next. Whether we want to stay for a bit longer and we hope that if

:19:08.:19:11.

the case, whether we want to trace of ink did then and he is within his

:19:12.:19:17.

rights and we respect that. A win would put Aberdeen up to second on

:19:18.:19:22.

Friday night. The transfer window slammed shut on Tuesday night. How

:19:23.:19:26.

vital is it that Aberdeen that they keep hold of Niall McGinn? I think

:19:27.:19:36.

him and Niall McGinn. -- I think him and Hayes. As we see Niall McGinn

:19:37.:19:42.

gets it and he is really strong out and these wide areas. The defender

:19:43.:19:46.

doesn't show him down the line Anier 's bags of pace. -- and he has bikes

:19:47.:19:56.

of pace. Ryan Jax had a fantastic header. Yes seven goals in eight

:19:57.:20:02.

games. He has fantastic form. -- Ryan Jack had a fantastic header. It

:20:03.:20:07.

looks like he's doing to beat his record from last year. What a

:20:08.:20:14.

delivery, he has pace he frightens defenders and he scores goals. A

:20:15.:20:20.

really nice cushioned header. He was outstanding on Friday night about

:20:21.:20:25.

five wins on the bounce but Aberdeen. They have real momentum

:20:26.:20:29.

will stop going into Wednesday's night at Celtic Park they have

:20:30.:20:34.

formed. Briefly, they brought in Ryan Christie, as well. He is going

:20:35.:20:44.

back to is tried and trusted team. And it is working so although Ryan

:20:45.:20:47.

Christie has been brought in, I wouldn't be attempted Rhyl tempted

:20:48.:20:54.

to throw in because the team gel in. They are looking to inspiration,

:20:55.:20:59.

they almost had it with this player. -- I would be tempted to throw them

:21:00.:21:10.

in. Dundee get the tales of and have something to defend. It wasn't the

:21:11.:21:15.

case but fantastic effort all the same. Such a fantastic. ... They

:21:16.:21:25.

haven't come out of this winter break well, it wasn't a surprise

:21:26.:21:28.

because they haven't beating Dundee in the league since 2004. A great

:21:29.:21:34.

win for Aberdeen. Good ranges reclaim second spot on the Saturday

:21:35.:21:37.

lunchtime match with Motherwell. The second time in a week they have met.

:21:38.:21:47.

Kenny Miller with the goals. Common green Scott Macdonald comes into the

:21:48.:21:51.

starting 11 but apart from that it was the team that lost at Ibrox.

:21:52.:21:56.

Three times they feel they should have taken some think there is a

:21:57.:22:04.

first start for American International he

:22:05.:22:11.

That is as Halloran, will -- that Isabel Halloran with a terrible

:22:12.:22:38.

looking challenge. The man who was linked with alone to Motherwell has

:22:39.:22:48.

deservedly in ordered off here for that challenge. Motherwell take a

:22:49.:22:54.

lot of motivation and inspiration from that. There is another very

:22:55.:23:05.

poor challenge, this time by Rob Canin. He is shown a yellow for that

:23:06.:23:17.

one. 15 years since Motherwell last beat Rangers in the league. That is

:23:18.:23:30.

a wonderful ball in and McDonald should have put Motherwell in front.

:23:31.:23:42.

What an opportunity that is. Ranges are enjoying a better little spell

:23:43.:23:51.

here. Here is McDonald who was left out of the starting of the Scottish

:23:52.:24:00.

cup. McDonald is off as well. It is ten against ten. Scott has McDonald,

:24:01.:24:08.

a poor torch that made his mind up to go in with a lunge. -- a poor

:24:09.:24:15.

touch. Rangers were beginning to come into the game just before

:24:16.:24:22.

McDonald were sent off. They are bossing things now. A good save from

:24:23.:24:29.

Samson. Looking for a goal on his first start for the Ibrox club.

:24:30.:24:40.

He has got it back that was clever. Samson saves from Miller. Here is

:24:41.:24:58.

Miller. He has snuck it through. A big chance here. It is Wallace. How

:24:59.:25:05.

on earth did that stay out? Pick the bones out of that. Lee Wallace,

:25:06.:25:11.

Samson got something on it and it came off.

:25:12.:25:27.

Ranges are threatening here. Craig Samson preventing the Spaniard from

:25:28.:25:43.

giving Rangers the lead. Three times Motherwell have lost to Rangers this

:25:44.:25:47.

season, twice in the last minutes of game. They also deal they should

:25:48.:25:52.

have taken something way back in the summer. Wallace, missed, not by

:25:53.:26:01.

Miller, though. The scourge of Motherwell has done it again. He

:26:02.:26:10.

probably should have scored himself, but Rangers Mr dependable is there

:26:11.:26:18.

again against Motherwell. Eight but the season full Miller. Here is

:26:19.:26:32.

again, this time it is Forrester. A good second-half performance by

:26:33.:26:35.

Craig Samson. A couple of saves in the second half, as well. A red card

:26:36.:26:43.

to Scott McDonald. That was crucial to the way this game has played

:26:44.:26:56.

itself out. 2-0, game, set and match, Rangers. They again to go

:26:57.:27:01.

back into second place. Hyndman is best for the club. -- is first. We

:27:02.:27:12.

played some good stuff at the time. It wasn't all bad. I would say that

:27:13.:27:18.

we didn't make enough chances when we're down to ten men. What was your

:27:19.:27:25.

view of the red cards? I am not docking it, but the first one was

:27:26.:27:30.

too far away, there were a lot of bodies and I couldn't be sure. I

:27:31.:27:38.

looked over Scott McDonald, I think it will get switched. He said the

:27:39.:27:42.

ball got away from him anywhere it he went for the ball he didn't mean

:27:43.:27:46.

to hurt Kenny Miller. If it was maybe a little bit over then he has

:27:47.:27:56.

made the decision and I stand by it. We are privileged to have the actual

:27:57.:28:00.

accused here in the dock. Thanks for coming in. I should have bought my

:28:01.:28:06.

shin pads. In terms of the sending-off... Lets get the easy one

:28:07.:28:14.

out of the way. 100% a red card. We know that O'Halloran is not a dirty

:28:15.:28:21.

player. But he caught the player very high up. Definitely a red card.

:28:22.:28:30.

A sore one. Now, Scott McDonald. I think this first angle here... The

:28:31.:28:36.

referee called as you saw it. I'm disappointed with it. I went into

:28:37.:28:46.

Kenny. That view is terrible. It doesn't look good. In terms of where

:28:47.:28:51.

the referee is, I did to win the ball, a lunge in I take the ball and

:28:52.:28:58.

as the impact is braced I'd bent my leg. It I had had a straight leg he

:28:59.:29:05.

would have been in a world of trouble. There is no bad intent

:29:06.:29:11.

there. I couldn't keep my butt in that position, I had to lift my

:29:12.:29:16.

thought or it would go to ground. -- I couldn't keep my foot in that

:29:17.:29:21.

position. I can understand that, but at the end of the date you have

:29:22.:29:25.

caught Kenny Miller high with your studs and that is dangerous play.

:29:26.:29:27.

For me it is a red card. They are a dime a dozen every week.

:29:28.:29:37.

When you slide in, is anyone ever in full control when they grow into

:29:38.:29:42.

ground? What was your view of this one, Scott? He's coming from a

:29:43.:29:47.

further distance, the player can see it. But he's out of control, when he

:29:48.:29:56.

goes to ground. Should it have been a red card? It's a possibility. This

:29:57.:30:04.

is more... It's a yellow card. I think mine was a yellow card. That

:30:05.:30:09.

the argument. We'll see another one, later in the game. Will you appeal?

:30:10.:30:18.

I haven't had the chance to speak to the manager or anyone else in the

:30:19.:30:24.

club. It was a good win for Rangers. Emerson Hyndman, what was he like?

:30:25.:30:30.

It was excellent and Rangers themselves dominated the past. He

:30:31.:30:36.

picks the ball up, looks forward and Rangers against Motherwell last

:30:37.:30:49.

time. Can I play a forward pass? Yes. A lovely little touch. He

:30:50.:30:53.

should have hit this with his left, tries on the outside of his right

:30:54.:30:58.

but brilliant from Hyndman. Two games, two assists and a goal and

:30:59.:31:02.

this is fantastic. Where can I play the killer pass? Are weighted ball

:31:03.:31:06.

perfectly. He was excellent. Why corn should have scored. He is in

:31:07.:31:11.

the right place at the right-hand why corn should have scored.

:31:12.:31:16.

Blaze a nice pass out but doesn't want to stop. A good touch and a

:31:17.:31:23.

really strong hit into the back. All round, very impressive performance.

:31:24.:31:27.

Very impressive defence as well from Scott McDonald on his own behalf.

:31:28.:31:31.

Kangaroo court! LAUGHTER You've not been so impressed by

:31:32.:31:35.

Motherwell's decent run of form? They have struggled. One win in

:31:36.:31:40.

eight. They've got a very tough couple of games coming up. Starting

:31:41.:31:43.

on Tuesday night at Ross County. No easy games. That stat looks, you

:31:44.:31:50.

know, worse than what we would think in the changing room. Going off the

:31:51.:31:54.

back of the winter break, we had four points out of six. Comeback,

:31:55.:31:59.

first league game we've lost, we're not looking as far back eight games.

:32:00.:32:03.

No question that Ross County is a big game on Tuesday night. Fair play

:32:04.:32:09.

to you for coming. Thank you. A tough week for Kilmarnock fans,

:32:10.:32:13.

painful last-minute exit from the Scottish Cup and their top scorer

:32:14.:32:18.

sold to an Egyptian side. How would Lee Clark's side respond against

:32:19.:32:20.

Ross County? COMMENTATOR: Lee Clark made a couple

:32:21.:32:29.

of changes to this side that lost to Hamilton Accies. Stevie Smith, the

:32:30.:32:36.

captain comes back in. Boyd starts up front. No real surprise that the

:32:37.:32:40.

Ross County manager, Jim McIntyre, stays with the same team that

:32:41.:32:44.

started the 6-2 cup win over Dundee United, having not lost for more

:32:45.:32:47.

than three years at their home ground.

:32:48.:32:51.

The Marnoch get us under way. Ross County have beaten them the last

:32:52.:32:58.

seven meetings but here's an early chance for Kris Boyd. Fantastic

:32:59.:33:07.

opening and with just ten seconds on the clock, Kris Boyd has put, like

:33:08.:33:16.

head. A deft finish from Boyd. Gary Dicker put him through on goal and

:33:17.:33:17.

Boyd pouncing. A chance for the equaliser. Good

:33:18.:33:32.

goalkeeping by Woodman, his first league appearance for Killie since

:33:33.:33:39.

joining from Newcastle. He did well to block Shop's effort. Away from

:33:40.:33:56.

his marker. Taking over. The equaliser for Ross County. It is,

:33:57.:34:03.

but quickly. Third goal in two games for County. They want behind for

:34:04.:34:10.

long. Good interchanging, setting up the Frenchman to level the score

:34:11.:34:14.

line and satisfy his manager, no doubt. No corner headed onto the

:34:15.:34:26.

bar. Rangers still not clear! Having fallen behind so early on, they are

:34:27.:34:30.

now in front. BOOING The home fans voiced their

:34:31.:34:35.

displeasure. County have turned things right around. It is Alex

:34:36.:34:41.

Schalk who has put them ahead. Just about keeping that one in. Gets

:34:42.:34:59.

it back. Another chance for County. Tim Chow couldn't get there.

:35:00.:35:05.

Threatening to put this game beyond Kilmarnock before half-time. Looking

:35:06.:35:07.

so dangerous at the moment, the visitors. Wilson forward to Boyd. A

:35:08.:35:18.

neat pass from the striker. Taylor. Boyd gets on the end of it but a

:35:19.:35:25.

good save from Fox in the end. He has to make sure of that one. Good

:35:26.:35:29.

move from Kilmarnock who started the second half a bit more brightly.

:35:30.:35:40.

Clips the corner kick in. It took a deflection on its way over.

:35:41.:35:45.

Kilmarnock press for the equaliser and Boyd is looking for his second

:35:46.:35:53.

of the match. Good block in the end. Something on the end for Dicker.

:35:54.:35:59.

Kilmarnock have been threatening that equaliser since half-time and

:36:00.:36:01.

finally they get it through Gary Dicker. Well deserved for the home

:36:02.:36:10.

side. Boyd with the assist this time, role reversal. As Kilmarnock

:36:11.:36:13.

draw level. So much room. With his goal-scoring

:36:14.:36:27.

prowess, you would have expected him to do better. Away from his marker,

:36:28.:36:29.

Wilson. Just managing to keep that in when

:36:30.:36:42.

he has lost out and then he lunges in on Jordan Jones. McEveley. It was

:36:43.:36:51.

a high tackle. But just a yellow card for McEveley. O'Brien. His

:36:52.:37:02.

fellow substitute, Gardyne. Side netting only had a few of the County

:37:03.:37:06.

fans behind that goal thought he had just managed to get this inside the

:37:07.:37:17.

near post. Fraser slightly slack with the past. Couldn't get there,

:37:18.:37:30.

Chow. Kilmarnock from nothing, back in front. They went ahead so early

:37:31.:37:36.

in this match. They've gone back in front so late on. Surely no chance

:37:37.:37:41.

for County to come back. The boys showed great character coming back

:37:42.:37:44.

from 2-1 behind. We took our chances. You mentioned earlier there

:37:45.:37:52.

was a worry about goals. You have the leading goal-scorer in the

:37:53.:37:54.

dressing room and we are now starting to get goals from midfield

:37:55.:37:59.

as well. It's all positive, today. Credit to Kilmarnock. They were

:38:00.:38:03.

putting us under a lot of pressure. For our side of things, we felt it

:38:04.:38:08.

was coming from us being slack in possession. I can't actually

:38:09.:38:12.

remember what happened. I haven't seen what happened. It was a long

:38:13.:38:17.

punt up the pitch. I don't know who won the header but the next thing I

:38:18.:38:20.

found myself through on goal. I thought I was offside for some

:38:21.:38:24.

reason at first as well. It was a great start. We got sloppy for maybe

:38:25.:38:29.

ten minutes. We paid the price because Ross County were excellent

:38:30.:38:34.

for ten minutes. But we showed great determination today. Got back and a

:38:35.:38:39.

great result. A great win for Kilmarnock. And a great moment for

:38:40.:38:43.

Kris Boyd. It has to be quite ironic he is has the fastest goal in

:38:44.:38:50.

Premiership history and it you have criticised his lack of pace. How he

:38:51.:38:55.

made it into the 18-yard box in ten seconds is one of life's mysteries.

:38:56.:38:59.

I have been critical of,, they haven't scored a goal within eight

:39:00.:39:06.

games. Kris Boyd put that right. Not a good celebration. But the perfect

:39:07.:39:10.

start for Kilmarnock for this game. Good finish from Boyd, as you would

:39:11.:39:14.

expect, Scott? Of course, he's been doing it for years. The big man is

:39:15.:39:19.

breaking records, fastest goal, now, leading all-time scorer in the

:39:20.:39:23.

league. A fantastic servant for Kilmarnock and good to see him back

:39:24.:39:26.

on the scoresheet. He enjoyed it despite the fact that he couldn't

:39:27.:39:31.

remember much about it. This great Kilmarnock comeback, it was

:39:32.:39:36.

fantastic for them, they haven't scored many goals this season but

:39:37.:39:38.

Ross County didn't help themselves in terms of the defence. Two Paul

:39:39.:39:41.

goals to lose. A corner and then van der Weg has Boyd but Decker leads

:39:42.:39:48.

him to help Boyd. Three or four yards on marked. A decent finish for

:39:49.:39:54.

him. This one is the last minute of the game. Fraser put it up the line,

:39:55.:39:57.

he goes inside and you can see it here. Chow Doesn't want it. He

:39:58.:40:04.

leaves it. There's an opportunity to get your body into a position to

:40:05.:40:08.

stop this past but he doesn't do that. Not lay-off from Tyson. A

:40:09.:40:14.

decent finish. Great entertainment at Rugby Park and a well-deserved

:40:15.:40:18.

win from Kilmarnock. A tough week for Kilmarnock and a home win was

:40:19.:40:21.

very welcome for the home fans. A theme developing this evening in

:40:22.:40:24.

terms of questionable challenges, Scott. McEveley, should this have

:40:25.:40:34.

been a red card? Yes. I will let Stephen answer this. No, Scott, you

:40:35.:40:41.

want answered? He clearly doesn't get the ball. Look, you want

:40:42.:40:46.

consistency. Again, I don't like calling, you know, should be a red

:40:47.:40:50.

card innit or a yellow card but he gets a yellow for that. -- red card

:40:51.:40:53.

but he gets a yellow for that. -- red or a yellow card. At least you

:40:54.:40:59.

got a bit of the Blixt he doesn't get any of the ball. -- a bit of the

:41:00.:41:05.

ball! Let's talk about Kilmarnock for a second. You were critical of

:41:06.:41:08.

them during the weekend they have seen so many players in the starting

:41:09.:41:13.

XI this season. Last weekend, 35 players in that starting XI. Is it

:41:14.:41:19.

working? Is Lee Clark panning for gold in finding gems? It might be

:41:20.:41:22.

that the Newcastle youngsters look very good. I was critical of the

:41:23.:41:26.

fact they weren't scoring goals, only one in the last six games

:41:27.:41:30.

before yesterday's match but three yesterday and the signs are

:41:31.:41:34.

positive. Up to joint sixth place as well. No choice to sell their top

:41:35.:41:39.

scorer. ?800,000. You need to bite the hand for that. Good for

:41:40.:41:43.

Kilmarnock. Kris Boyd scored and he will be a big player in the lead up

:41:44.:41:48.

to the end of this season. If they can get him scoring goals, they will

:41:49.:41:52.

be fine. The surprise result of the weekend? Yes. McDiarmid Park, St

:41:53.:41:58.

Johnstone versus Hamilton Accies, two sides are readily punching above

:41:59.:42:01.

their respective weights, who can land a knockout blow? COMMENTATOR:

:42:02.:42:05.

Six Changes For St Johnstone. Hamilton are without suspended Mikey

:42:06.:42:16.

Devlin. Anderson's header away. Collected by

:42:17.:42:38.

Crawford. That is Danny Redmond. McKinnon. Decent strike. In the

:42:39.:42:46.

first half of the few highlights, this at least produces a save from

:42:47.:42:55.

Clark. Danny Swanson gets himself into trouble. Out comes a yellow

:42:56.:43:04.

card from the referee. After this foul on Redmond. It is Crawford and

:43:05.:43:15.

it is not quite close enough. Just skimming the roof of the net from

:43:16.:43:17.

the Hamilton midfielder on its way over.

:43:18.:43:23.

. Helped over by Watson. Being's touch. Anderson in trouble. What's

:43:24.:43:34.

your virginity for Craig Watson. Should have been scoring here.

:43:35.:43:42.

Popped up so invitingly. Redmond for Hamilton. Loses out to Alex D'Acol

:43:43.:44:01.

D'Acol. What a miss! Want a chance for Crawford to make it ten goals

:44:02.:44:05.

for the season and get the Accies ahead.

:44:06.:44:12.

Cummins helping it along. . A chance for St Johnstone. That was heading

:44:13.:44:22.

in. Danny Swanson with the corner.

:44:23.:44:25.

Cummins! 1-0! Cummins at muscling everyone in the

:44:26.:44:40.

six yard box. -- out muscling. Just a couple of minutes after Crawford's

:44:41.:44:46.

glaring miss St Johnstone make no mistake.

:44:47.:44:52.

Cummins making a nuisance of himself.

:44:53.:44:59.

Taking it out wide but keeps it alive. Cummins strikes again.

:45:00.:45:08.

Doubling his goals total for the season. It is two for the St

:45:09.:45:15.

Johnstone striker in not much more than five minutes. And even at this

:45:16.:45:19.

early stage, you would imagine there is no way back for Hamilton. Imrie.

:45:20.:45:28.

MacKinnon trying to muscle his way in. Bingham's shot deflected. Danny

:45:29.:45:35.

Redmond. Big opportunity but the shot blocked by Anderson. He took

:45:36.:45:44.

far too long. I am sure the manager agrees. Initially, on his left foot,

:45:45.:45:48.

his stronger foot, switched it to the right. A real opportunity gone

:45:49.:45:56.

to get Hamilton back in the game. Three points will take St Johnstone

:45:57.:45:59.

level on points with hearts in fourth spot. Cummins. He holds it

:46:00.:46:09.

up, he rolls it back for Brian Easton. Davidson! Game over.

:46:10.:46:20.

Davidson strikes. Not picked up, as he made his move into the Hamilton

:46:21.:46:26.

penalty box. That makes it 3-0. Lovely ball in from eastern

:46:27.:46:29.

defending. -- from Brian Easton. Crawford with the free kick. That

:46:30.:46:41.

just about sums things up today. Both for Crawford and Hamilton.

:46:42.:46:44.

WHISTLE I thought Hamilton played very well,

:46:45.:46:53.

particularly first half and that 2-0 they had a great chance to make it

:46:54.:47:00.

back to 2-1. We played better and lost. Ultimately, we got the job

:47:01.:47:05.

done. When you go through one-on-one we need to put the ball in the back

:47:06.:47:09.

of the net and had we gone one up we would have deserved it. We were the

:47:10.:47:12.

better team until that point. It has been the case for so many games this

:47:13.:47:15.

season we have been comfortable in the game, controlling the game,

:47:16.:47:20.

feeling that the opportunities will come for us. And we do. And we don't

:47:21.:47:26.

take them. And we get on dawn. A good win for St Johnstone, they draw

:47:27.:47:30.

level on points with hearts. Not good for Hamilton Accies. Could have

:47:31.:47:34.

been a different game. Crawford with this chance. Most definitely. As we

:47:35.:47:43.

see here, Martin said in his interview if they score this and go

:47:44.:47:46.

one up the game is different and in the balance. It is unlike him. He

:47:47.:47:50.

possibly could have taken the first time as well. He decides to take his

:47:51.:47:56.

touch and you always fancy Crawford from this area. He is a key player

:47:57.:48:00.

for Hamilton. If they are to do well, this second half of the

:48:01.:48:03.

season, he will have to be firing. It was a good chance. As is often

:48:04.:48:06.

the case with St Johnstone, they find a way to win the match and they

:48:07.:48:10.

did it resoundingly. They are so good at doing this and they are so

:48:11.:48:14.

professional. They get the ball. This is where they are strong in

:48:15.:48:20.

these errors, great header from Cummins. Putting the ball in the box

:48:21.:48:23.

is a massive strength of their -- strong in these areas. They are a

:48:24.:48:27.

bit all over the place. You think at this point the ball has gone to wide

:48:28.:48:31.

with this touch. They get away with it, they get bodies back. Even that,

:48:32.:48:35.

they will be hugely disappointed that they don't clear that. Second

:48:36.:48:42.

goal for Cummins. Really bad. This is the pick of the bunch. Davidson

:48:43.:48:45.

doing what he does time and time again. He doesn't come into the

:48:46.:48:49.

frame and tell quite make that his timing from his run into the box is

:48:50.:48:54.

superb. -- until quite late. A sensational header. That is their

:48:55.:48:59.

strength. He knows that ball is coming in. That's a wonderful thing

:49:00.:49:05.

to have. For a striker or in midfielder making late runs like

:49:06.:49:08.

that, as soon as the wide man gets it, put it in the area and it is a

:49:09.:49:12.

fantastic header. How worried should Hamilton Accies fan speed? There is

:49:13.:49:16.

talk of a boycott. We look at their run of form, they won a match in the

:49:17.:49:22.

league since October. It is incredible. It is incredible. Joint

:49:23.:49:28.

bottom of the table. They are really struggling, joint bottom of the

:49:29.:49:31.

table with Inverness who they actually play on Tuesday night. That

:49:32.:49:35.

becomes a massive game. Whoever wins is going to leave the other three

:49:36.:49:39.

points adrift at the bottom of the league. It is a huge game. The

:49:40.:49:42.

graphic shows the form has been there were good enough for Hamilton.

:49:43.:49:47.

Is Martin Canning under real pressure? It doesn't seem that way.

:49:48.:49:51.

Even though there is talk of a boycott. They want everybody pulling

:49:52.:49:57.

in the same direction. He doesn't seem to be under that much pressure

:49:58.:50:01.

from the club board? He is experienced at this, now. There were

:50:02.:50:04.

people putting pressure on him last season. He managed to come through

:50:05.:50:10.

with that and kept the club adrift of relegation, once again. It is

:50:11.:50:15.

difficult, with the budgets they live upon. Martin Canning is doing

:50:16.:50:21.

his best. Only six points between bottom and six. You would have to

:50:22.:50:24.

put every manager under that category. Ritchie was talking about

:50:25.:50:30.

finishing top six. Still very tight and there is still quite a distance

:50:31.:50:34.

to go. A couple for you, St Johnstone finishing above Hearts? It

:50:35.:50:38.

is going to be interesting. Celtic win the league and then the battle

:50:39.:50:42.

for second between Rangers and Aberdeen but interesting between St

:50:43.:50:44.

Johnstone and Hearts for that fourth place. Yes, I think they will. I

:50:45.:50:54.

know you love a curve. Finally, the battle of the jags, Inverness Caley

:50:55.:50:56.

Thistle versus Partick Caley Thistle. John Barnes does the

:50:57.:51:02.

commentary. COMMENTATOR: Henry Anya gets his first start as they beg for

:51:03.:51:08.

a change in form. Raven returns after a three-month absence. Ross

:51:09.:51:17.

Draper is back in midfield. My appeal and gets his debut. -- Ryan

:51:18.:51:26.

Keown. Horrendous run for them as far as the league is concerned. No

:51:27.:51:29.

wins in the last ten league fixtures. This all trying to move

:51:30.:51:39.

forward -- Thistle. Edwards trying a colour. William is alert to that

:51:40.:51:46.

danger. The Australian finding that space for the shot but it could well

:51:47.:51:47.

have gone wide. Raven. Swinging its deep to the back.

:51:48.:52:07.

Tremarco. The left full-back is in good form, joint top scorer for

:52:08.:52:12.

Caley Thistle six goals this campaign. Close to number seven,

:52:13.:52:20.

there. He was looking for three wins out of three. They will have to to

:52:21.:52:38.

defend at the moment. Good ball in. A brilliant save from Williams. How

:52:39.:52:45.

did he get a hand to that one? What a touch that was from the goalkeeper

:52:46.:52:49.

did not get onto the crossbar. And deny Azeez an opener.

:52:50.:53:03.

Partick Thistle are moving quickly. A fine nutmeg on Ross Draper from

:53:04.:53:18.

Sean Welsh. Azeez, holding it up. Erskine touched away by Williams.

:53:19.:53:25.

Erskine scored a double last week against United and desperate to get

:53:26.:53:27.

on the scoresheet with that effort. Still pushing forward again. There's

:53:28.:53:39.

Azeez. Couldn't find the target with that effort this time.

:53:40.:53:45.

Forward. Looking for a free but not getting it. A chance for Caley

:53:46.:54:08.

Thistle. Draper towards Polworth. Good running but could not get a

:54:09.:54:11.

proper connection with the shot, though.

:54:12.:54:14.

Cleared. It breaks to Tremarco, again. You can see why he is joint

:54:15.:54:28.

Trot score for Caley Thistle, always in defensive positions -- joint top

:54:29.:54:37.

scorer. -- in offensive positions. Welsh getting out to Lawless. Azeez!

:54:38.:54:49.

It does not look like it will be Azeez's afternoon. Another good

:54:50.:54:54.

opening. Caley Thistle have not won in the league at home since

:54:55.:54:55.

September. Early on the park a couple of

:54:56.:55:06.

minutes, the substitute. Is this the chance? He has failed to take it. He

:55:07.:55:09.

curls it wide of the left hand post. No relegation fight, too early to

:55:10.:55:17.

talk about that. Top six still, six points away from the top six and I

:55:18.:55:21.

believe we will get there. We need a couple of players coming in to win

:55:22.:55:24.

their shirts which we are working hard on in the areas we need. We are

:55:25.:55:29.

good to go, it is positive. This team were desperate to win the game.

:55:30.:55:34.

We are a bit disappointed not getting a victory and not going

:55:35.:55:39.

clear of them. We have a platform to build on. This match wasn't a thing

:55:40.:55:43.

of beauty but the point is shared between the sides. It was must win

:55:44.:55:46.

according to the Inverness manager Richie Foran before the game.

:55:47.:55:51.

Obviously, he didn't win it. He did say that and paradoxically said he

:55:52.:55:55.

was happy with a point. It's a better point for Partick than

:55:56.:55:59.

Inverness who are desperate for points at this stage and Inverness

:56:00.:56:02.

haven't lost a goal in the last four trips. They haven't lost to

:56:03.:56:08.

Inverness in the last few games. They are in decent form and they

:56:09.:56:11.

dominated this match yesterday. A fine line between a great save and

:56:12.:56:16.

maybe a lucky block and Fon Williams came to the fore in these next few

:56:17.:56:20.

clips? It will be delighted. Seeing the highlights last week, he won't

:56:21.:56:26.

be wanting to see them back. 41 he didn't say. This is a big miss. --
