All the action from a high-scoring SPL weekend coming our way

0:00:520:00:58

including the last SPL Old Firm match of the season. The

0:00:580:01:05

commentators are with me tonight. Last week was dominated by the

0:01:050:01:13

punishments dished out to Rangers for SFA rule-breaking. Thousands of

0:01:130:01:18

the Rangers supporters marched on SFA headquarters at hand in

0:01:180:01:23

yesterday to highlight their concerns about the 12 month

0:01:230:01:30

transfer embargo and fines. More disciplinary trouble looming for

0:01:300:01:38

Neil Lennon and the jailing of the two men who sent the Celtic manager

0:01:380:01:48
0:01:480:02:04

a parcel bomb. No wonder training The 400 small-firm Derby. Rangers

0:02:040:02:14
0:02:140:02:24

come to the East End of Glasgow. -- 400th Old Firm derby. The Ibrox

0:02:240:02:32

side have begun the match well. Neil Lennon on his second touchline

0:02:320:02:42
0:02:420:02:56

from that man. All the player of the Year accolades. Troubled times

0:02:560:03:03

for Ally McCoist. An Old Firm victory would make him feel a lot

0:03:030:03:13
0:03:130:03:16

better I am sure. He did not have the end product, it did the

0:03:160:03:26

Northern Irish man. Chris Collins, who has enjoyed a run in the Celtic

0:03:260:03:32

team in recent weeks has not had his best season. The corner.

0:03:320:03:39

Charlie Mulgrew is there. Celtic draw first blood on Old Firm day.

0:03:390:03:45

Charlie Mulgrew's first Old Firm derby goal. That caps and

0:03:450:03:51

unbelievable season for him. He is favourite for a player of the year.

0:03:510:03:57

He has opened the scoring against the Rangers. The season of his

0:03:570:04:07
0:04:070:04:22

Hooper. He twists away. Kris Commons is in with a chance for two.

0:04:220:04:29

There it is! Chris Coleman's chooses the Old Firm derby to score

0:04:290:04:39
0:04:390:04:39

his first ball of the season. Terrific work by a Hooper. Route

0:04:390:04:45

that was fantastic. Celtic in command in the final Old Firm in

0:04:450:04:55

game of the season. Terrific finishing from Kris Commons. A good

0:04:550:05:01

effort. Beaten away by Alan McGregor. Celtic are trying to get

0:05:010:05:11
0:05:110:05:13

a third goal before the interval. It is too high for Samaras. A

0:05:130:05:21

fantastic effort. What about these Save from the Rangers No. 1.

0:05:210:05:30

Commons quips it in. McGregor is the air again. What a corner. He

0:05:310:05:39

has caused all kinds of problems for Rangers. Nicky Butt. He has had

0:05:390:05:44

a good start to his Rangers career but he has lost that one. Her

0:05:440:05:54
0:05:540:06:02

power! Stunning finish! -- Hooper. That is goal number 24 of the

0:06:020:06:08

season. The SPL champions are absolutely romping home against

0:06:080:06:18

their greatest rivals. Neil Lennon in the stand celebrates with those

0:06:180:06:28
0:06:280:06:42

The Rangers fans are still trying to counteract the Celtic support

0:06:420:06:49

who are absolutely loving best as you can understand. Sone Aluko's

0:06:490:06:59
0:06:590:07:03

free-kick. It would have only been The last Old Firm match of the

0:07:030:07:08

season but it could be the last ever Old Firm game with the State

0:07:080:07:15

that the Rangers are in. Indeed. It is a wonderful occasion to play in

0:07:150:07:20

but I think Rangers will always be there. We do not know what will

0:07:200:07:24

happen at the end of the day but hopefully they will stay around. I

0:07:240:07:29

would like to see the end of this to be honest. It is dragging on and

0:07:290:07:39
0:07:390:07:42

doing nobody any favours. I have travelled around Europe and people

0:07:420:07:47

are amazed that Rangers have got themselves into this situation but

0:07:470:07:53

they all want to come to an Old Firm game. We have seen bigger

0:07:530:07:58

score lines but is that about as one-sided as it gets in an Old Firm

0:07:580:08:08
0:08:080:08:09

game? I think so. It was not a rigid 3-5-2. Samaras was drifting

0:08:090:08:16

from the front to the left and we had two white men pushing up. It

0:08:160:08:22

kind of through Rangers and the never sorted it out on time. The

0:08:220:08:30

game was gone. They were both like winners? That is absolutely right.

0:08:300:08:36

Today there were about six or seven crosses in the first half. The

0:08:360:08:46
0:08:460:08:58

system that Celtic played through a not seem able to counter. That is

0:08:580:09:07

right. They were all over Rangers. They were causing them all sorts of

0:09:070:09:13

problems and the could not quite sort it out themselves on the pitch.

0:09:130:09:22

Commons played in that free role. Samaras likes to drift wide so when

0:09:220:09:29

he does so he draws someone out of position. It was kind of by default

0:09:290:09:35

that be played that particular system. I felt sorry for the young

0:09:350:09:39

player McCabe. Today Commons just ran off on him and caused all sorts

0:09:390:09:49
0:09:490:09:56

from a range of point of view, be looking out? I could not believe

0:09:560:10:01

this particular one. You have got Charlie Mulgrew on the edge of the

0:10:010:10:08

box. Rangers have overloaded the front box. Once you do not go and

0:10:080:10:14

pick up a centre half, if you also look at the edge of the box and the

0:10:140:10:24
0:10:240:10:25

midfielder, his attention is to the first we're on the left. Charlie

0:10:250:10:34

Mulgrew is a danger. Celtic do not have much height. But there are

0:10:340:10:40

several who should have been picked up and they did not. They did not

0:10:400:10:46

learn from it. If you look at this again it was the same move. Rangers

0:10:460:10:51

never sorted it at any point and it got them in trouble. You have got

0:10:510:10:57

to rely on players to sort things out for themselves. Too many times

0:10:570:11:02

the players rely on the coach but on the pitch things have got to

0:11:020:11:08

change. This was the second goal and they were all over the place.

0:11:080:11:14

That was bad defending. Taking nothing away from Commons, that was

0:11:140:11:23

a great touch. This was a nice little pass from Samaras and at

0:11:230:11:31

fantastic finish. She power. Commons again working hard in the

0:11:310:11:41

middle of the picture. Do you have high hopes for Neil Lennon as an

0:11:410:11:45

manager? Will he bring Celtic sustained success now, do you

0:11:450:11:55
0:11:550:11:59

I think he is doing well now. He lost a little bit of his composure

0:11:590:12:04

and finally, today he was up in the stand and I think the change of

0:12:040:12:08

tactic was interesting. He was up there watching the game which I

0:12:080:12:13

think would be good for him but I think he would like to be and the

0:12:130:12:22

dressing room beforehand. -- in the dressing room beforehand.

0:12:220:12:30

closest challengers for third place are Motherwell and they were at

0:12:300:12:40
0:12:400:12:40

home to Hearts yesterday. We have the highlights. -- Dundee United

0:12:400:12:50
0:12:500:12:50

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

0:12:500:13:45

often special. This is no different. back across, and the keeper

0:13:450:13:55
0:13:550:14:25

couldn't stop it from trundling impressive. A terrific save. A

0:14:250:14:35
0:14:350:15:01

wonderful effort from the full-back. time, denied by Pernis per got

0:15:020:15:11
0:15:120:15:20

Flood delivering the corner. Finding its way through. And they

0:15:200:15:26

are back in front! That should have been dealt with by the Hearts

0:15:260:15:36
0:15:360:15:59

the substitute. Almost a perfect introduction from the winner. But

0:15:590:16:09
0:16:090:16:23

brilliant! From Novikovas. Simply sublime. From the substitute. Only

0:16:230:16:31

on the park for three minutes. But betters even the strike from Flood.

0:16:310:16:41
0:16:410:16:43

Age it macro set him up. And he did it. -- Elliott. A last chance, but

0:16:430:16:53
0:16:530:17:01

A late equaliser. It would have been a travesty if they haven't got

0:17:010:17:06

something from the game, they created plenty. A great game.

0:17:070:17:10

Dundee United played a part but you would have to say Hearts were

0:17:100:17:16

particularly unlucky not to have won, they created five good chances.

0:17:170:17:23

Paulo Sergio has done a great job, getting the balance, now in the Cup

0:17:240:17:33
0:17:340:18:02

final. Goals from Flood don't come They don't come along often but

0:18:020:18:09

they are special. He is not renowned for goalscoring. His big

0:18:090:18:15

problem always has been his strength. Two great goals in the

0:18:150:18:25
0:18:250:18:40

was. Brilliant. His goals are special. As a goalkeeper, you just

0:18:400:18:50
0:18:500:18:51

A draw at Tannadice in the lunchtime kick-off handed

0:18:510:18:54

Motherwell the chance, in their three o'clock start at Fir Park, to

0:18:540:18:58

go five points clear in the race for a place in the Champions League

0:18:590:19:01

qualifiers, if they could beat St Johnstone. Jonathan Sutherland has

0:19:010:19:11
0:19:110:19:19

the race in Europe? Anderson was in the way there, a penalty to

0:19:190:19:23

Motherwell in the 17th minute. Hidden macro have opted for low and

0:19:230:19:33
0:19:330:19:35

hard. Motherwell off to the perfect start. -- Higdon. Just three

0:19:350:19:41

minutes after that, humphrey macro got the better of Morris. He picked

0:19:410:19:51
0:19:510:19:56

out Law, and Motherwell were in Motherwell were looking very good.

0:19:560:20:02

And into the second half, it would get even better for the home side.

0:20:020:20:12
0:20:120:20:20

Hateley with the cross. And a All in all, a bad day at the Office

0:20:210:20:27

for St Johnstone. They would get a penalty, though. Haber up ended by

0:20:270:20:34

Hutchinson. But not much doubt over the decision. Crates macro to go

0:20:340:20:39

over penalty duties and a calm these white the ball home past

0:20:390:20:49
0:20:490:21:02

Randolph. -- Craig swiped the ball 1 by Ojamaa. The momentum well and

0:21:020:21:12
0:21:120:21:17

and he wasn't finished. 18 appearances for Motherwell. His

0:21:170:21:24

Life goal. A blunder from the St Johnstone keeper. Motherwell are

0:21:240:21:29

guaranteed a European place. Five points ahead of Dundee United, with

0:21:290:21:39
0:21:390:21:43

They have to be hot favourites now for third spot? And if you look at

0:21:430:21:47

the games for Dundee. They will have to try to close that gap. A

0:21:470:21:54

big game against Motherwell. They certainly went about their business,

0:21:540:22:00

winning the game emphatically. Earlier in the year they were

0:22:000:22:04

playing really well. Yesterday's result was a good result for them.

0:22:040:22:12

I thought Dundee United would be the favourites. That result, has

0:22:120:22:16

probably put them in a good position. They have been second or

0:22:160:22:24

third for most of the season. have shown fantastic consistency.

0:22:240:22:29

They have kept on going. We have talked about the Budget, the size

0:22:290:22:34

of the squad. If they can get a Champions League spot, it will be a

0:22:340:22:42

wonderful thing. Wonderful for Stuart McCall. Stuart McCall is

0:22:420:22:47

delighted at what he is getting from Humphrey, who is something of

0:22:470:22:53

an enigma, which most winners are. He has amazing pace. With that

0:22:530:23:03
0:23:030:23:10

lightning pace. I don't think this Disappointment for Morris. Humphrey

0:23:100:23:15

is adding aggression. And quality delivery. There is no doubting his

0:23:150:23:19

ability and his pace. The one thing you might doubt is a little bit

0:23:190:23:29
0:23:290:23:35

like Murphy, sometimes considers Getting into the Champions League

0:23:350:23:39

will be huge for these players. us not forget St Johnstone, lots to

0:23:390:23:48

play for, for them. Stuart McCall, if he achieved that. A hard job for

0:23:480:23:55

Stephen Lomas. If Dunfermline are to survive in the SPL, they've left

0:23:550:23:58

it late to stage their great escape. Even last weekend's fightback at St

0:23:580:24:08
0:24:080:24:21

Mirren was good enough only for a yesterday.

0:24:210:24:27

Dunfermline need to win this game. Six points adrift. Just three games

0:24:270:24:36

to go after this one. Anderson almost caught there. Playing it

0:24:360:24:45

back to the goalkeeper. He picked that up. And indirect free kick.

0:24:450:24:55
0:24:550:25:08

Langfield is raging. He didn't Touch back to Hardie. The wrong

0:25:080:25:18
0:25:180:25:43

side of the post. Hardie, normally -- Dunfermline. Just three away

0:25:430:25:47

wins for Aberdeen this season. The shouts for handball has not been

0:25:470:25:52

given by the referee, he is not interested. As the ball came

0:25:520:26:02
0:26:020:26:10

swimming in from there, he got his really. Near the goalkeeper really

0:26:100:26:20
0:26:200:26:39

before the hour, he scores what before. Back in November, against

0:26:400:26:49
0:26:500:27:03

pretty good in recent months. Their performance in the Scottish League

0:27:030:27:07

Cup final let them down. They didn't cover themselves in glory

0:27:070:27:14

for the opening goal in this one. The referee giving the foul against

0:27:140:27:19

Aberdeen, having a word with Magennis who has been used at right

0:27:190:27:29
0:27:290:27:29

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 55 seconds

0:27:290:28:44

Almost in tears watching that defensive blunder. Going into last

0:28:440:28:48

week's games, seven. Between them. Now it is back to three. Could they

0:28:480:28:58
0:28:580:28:59

yet escaped? There are three games left. They have got momentum. I

0:28:590:29:03

thought when Jefferies won their five games ago, but it didn't quite

0:29:030:29:12

happen. Watching Hibs today. They didn't show and urgency. There is

0:29:120:29:17

always a chance with three games. momentous result, it has taken them

0:29:170:29:27
0:29:270:29:33

to win at home for the first time. They have blown this relegation

0:29:330:29:39

race wide open. This summed up Aberdeen's performance. A

0:29:390:29:49
0:29:490:29:51

Aberdeen also. They have had a horrendous season. Nothing had

0:29:510:29:57

happened for them. They can't keep saying, we will clear it up every

0:29:570:30:01

summer. They have to stop buildings have been for the future. Aberdeen

0:30:010:30:11
0:30:110:30:18

is a big club. It was always a Finally Dunfermline have put away

0:30:180:30:25

in in their stats. It is great that they have won at home as we can see

0:30:250:30:29

the. The goal difference matters but it is coming down all the time.

0:30:290:30:36

They have got games midweek. If they can get another couple off the

0:30:360:30:42

goal difference and then they play one another it is wide open. The

0:30:420:30:48

big game is midweek. Water come on that shortly. Dunfermline were

0:30:480:30:53

hoping Hibernian would draw a blank in Paisley today. Our reporter was

0:30:540:31:03
0:31:040:31:16

scored! The man who scored a hat- trick last time out at home should

0:31:160:31:25

have had his side ahead but he glances bit worried. A free-kick.

0:31:250:31:33

It could be a yellow card as well. It will be four or Mark McCausland.

0:31:330:31:42

The referee judged tend to have come in very late indeed. A

0:31:420:31:47

steadying influence. Long ball through the middle. The keeper is

0:31:470:31:56

out. He tries to check it and it is white. A simple ball through. He

0:31:560:32:03

certainly should have scored here. Plenty of battles all over the

0:32:030:32:13
0:32:130:32:14

pitch. Launched into the middle. Cleared away. A chance! Great save

0:32:140:32:19

from the keeper. You have got a feeling that man should have scored

0:32:190:32:29
0:32:290:32:31

in the SPL for the first time. The goalkeeper had a good stock. Macau

0:32:310:32:41
0:32:410:32:42

in lively and inspired. On side, on to McLean. It is into the back of

0:32:420:32:52
0:32:520:32:52

the Net! St Mirren in the lead after 65 minutes. He kept his feet,

0:32:520:32:57

end to Maclean and pulled the ball across the goalkeeper into the far

0:32:570:33:06

corner. He has made an impact since he came on as a substitute.

0:33:060:33:11

Hibernian were behind last week against Kilmarnock and really

0:33:110:33:19

struggled to make any impact on the game. The ball is knocked away.

0:33:190:33:24

There is acclaim for the penalty but the referee was right there and

0:33:240:33:32

said no. He played the ball said the referee. Hibernian will be

0:33:320:33:42

unhappy that there was no penalty awarded. It comes in high. I good

0:33:420:33:52
0:33:520:33:52

one. The ball is pitched clear. Stevenson stretching. He has taken

0:33:520:34:02
0:34:020:34:04

one for the team. Louis Stevenson will get a red-carded for that. --

0:34:040:34:14
0:34:140:34:18

yellow-carded. Hibernian thought they had problems going forward.

0:34:180:34:23

Hibernian are trying to get some urgency into the game. Griffiths

0:34:230:34:31

has already been booked. If this is a yellow card he is gone. It will

0:34:310:34:40

be St Mirren's 4th red card of the season. It was a subtle tuck on the

0:34:400:34:50
0:34:500:34:55

Jersey. Mayor to MacGowan. Taken down by Louis Stevenson. He has

0:34:550:35:00

already been booked. A second yellow and now a red for Louis

0:35:000:35:06

Stevenson. Hibernian have got the Scottish Cup final to look forward

0:35:060:35:10

to at the end of the season but before that they might just be

0:35:100:35:17

scrapping for their lives. They looked in a lot of trouble here

0:35:170:35:24

today. This particular goal, looking at it, it was bad defending.

0:35:240:35:30

Diving in here, he does not make the tackle. Comes across. The

0:35:300:35:35

goalkeeper could have done a little bit better on the shot. Hibernian

0:35:350:35:43

are in trouble. They did not show any urgency today. Forget the Cup

0:35:430:35:48

final, that is going to happen, it is a bonus for them but they have

0:35:480:35:53

to survive. They are a huge club and they are down there scrapping.

0:35:540:36:01

Even when St Mirren were down to 10 men to they did not know what to do.

0:36:010:36:05

They have the opportunity to do something special but they just did

0:36:050:36:11

not produce enough on a day when they had to survive. They have had

0:36:110:36:18

two opportunities to pull something out of the bank. Last week and this

0:36:180:36:25

week again. They cannot get themselves back into the game and

0:36:250:36:32

relax. They will not be able to enjoy the Cup final because they

0:36:320:36:37

are in the relegation battle. look like a penalty but here you

0:36:370:36:42

can see quite clearly that it is not a penalty. The referee got it

0:36:420:36:49

right. Sometimes we give them a bit of stick but today he definitely

0:36:490:36:57

got it right. Let's just say, it was a great decision! Wash your

0:36:580:37:05

mouth out! The vital statistics for these clubs. Three points and seven

0:37:060:37:11

goals between them. While we are obviously focusing on the head-to-

0:37:110:37:15

head between them also on our mind are where the other points are

0:37:150:37:23

coming from. The big game as you pointed out earlier is the

0:37:230:37:28

Hibernian verses Dunfermline game. Hibernian are at home and expected

0:37:280:37:37

to be favourites. It is going to be a huge game. Who is it going to be?

0:37:370:37:44

No pressure. I would like to beat end Hibernian's shoes. Relegation

0:37:440:37:54

battles are not nice. It is just when the nerves start taking over.

0:37:540:38:00

Are you making the goal difference into a 4th.? Or can you just not

0:38:000:38:10
0:38:100:38:13

add up? Yesterday's rematch fell short but not by much. Something

0:38:130:38:20

strange happens to these teams when they meet at Rugby Park. Last time

0:38:200:38:27

the Caley Thistle ran out 6-3 winners. This would be another

0:38:270:38:34

explosion of goals. For sheer entertainment this game pretty much

0:38:340:38:44

had it all. A contender for goal of the season as the frame of the goal

0:38:440:38:54
0:38:540:38:55

was rattled. It became 1-1 just before the half hour mark. Plenty

0:38:550:39:05
0:39:050:39:06

of speculation over the future of this Inverness winner at the moment.

0:39:060:39:13

His second made it 2-1. Not bad, two goals in one game but just

0:39:130:39:19

three in total this season for the player. Just before the interval

0:39:190:39:25

Jonny Hayes would pick up a yellow card. The fact we are showing it

0:39:250:39:33

means it would prove costly. Terry Butcher said this should have been

0:39:330:39:41

as stonewalled penalty. It was definitely outside the box. And

0:39:410:39:47

time was up for Jonny Hayes just before the one hour mark. A clumsy

0:39:470:39:54

challenge and a second yellow meant red. Soft or not, he knew he had

0:39:540:40:02

been walking a tightrope. With the extra man advantage, Kilmarnock

0:40:020:40:09

took advantage. Nelson with a great header in the 66th minute. These

0:40:090:40:19
0:40:190:40:20

cause now level at 2 each. The sending off was a real turning

0:40:200:40:25

point in this game. Dean Shiels with some great footwork and his

0:40:250:40:34

cross was diverted warm. De Gaulle was officially credited to Shiels

0:40:340:40:43

but our dubious goals panel have taken that of her! -- the goal was

0:40:430:40:53
0:40:530:40:56

officially credited. And then she'll make it 4-2. -- Dean Shiels.

0:40:560:41:04

He was looking every inch the Year -- player of be a contender that he

0:41:040:41:14
0:41:140:41:16

is. And then it became 4-3. Between them this season an astonishing 16

0:41:160:41:21

goals. Let's look at what made Terry Butcher angry yesterday,

0:41:210:41:27

there is usually something. What did you make of these goals? He did

0:41:270:41:33

catch them a little bit there. He could have been let off with the

0:41:330:41:39

IPL beer but when you are on yellow you certainly do not do that.

0:41:390:41:44

they have had a few leading into it. The second was clumsy more than

0:41:440:41:51

anything else. I am a little bit worried about the outbreak of

0:41:510:41:57

sympathy towards officials tonight! No problem here as it was outside

0:41:570:42:06

the box. It could have been at 310 but was definitely outside the box.

0:42:060:42:14

There was a mention of the dubious calls panel. What about this.

0:42:140:42:21

Terrific play from Dean Shiels. Terrific player. I would have tried

0:42:210:42:28

for that myself. Quite rightly nominated. He has not had a lot of

0:42:280:42:33

football but that is the confidence of the man when you get nominated

0:42:330:42:38

for player of the year you do things like that. We watched him

0:42:380:42:45

against Kilmarnock and Celtic. He plays great football at times. The

0:42:450:42:51

team are so open at times and high- scoring games seem to be the result.

0:42:510:42:58

It changed the whole complexion of the season for them, didn't it?

0:42:580:43:03

manager should really get a mention. There are no outstanding candidates

0:43:030:43:13
0:43:130:43:15

but he has won the Cup final. controversial. Strange things now

0:43:150:43:22

and again. He has been known to see what he thinks. Now the gap at the

0:43:220:43:28

top between Celtic and Rangers is now 21 points. Motherwell looking a

0:43:280:43:38
0:43:380:43:39

whole lot stronger in third. Five ahead of Dundee United. St

0:43:390:43:44

Johnstone are three below them. Crucially at the bottom of the SPL

0:43:440:43:52

three points now between Hibernian and Dunfermline. Plenty fixtures

0:43:520:44:00

starting on Tuesday night with Hearts against Motherwell.

0:44:000:44:05

Wednesday is a busy night and then it is Thursday night for Celtic

0:44:050:44:09

versus St Johnstone. You can see highlights of all those matches
