Good afternoon and welcome to the Results show.

:00:16.:00:17.

It's a six game Premiership Saturday - more fun than dooking

:00:18.:00:19.

for chips at Halloween and a lot less dangerous.

:00:20.:00:22.

That's why we've roped in two top quality guests.

:00:23.:00:24.

The man who lead Inverness in their historic Scottish Cup

:00:25.:00:28.

winning year - John Hughes and former Scotland international

:00:29.:00:31.

and Sportscene regular Steven Thompson.

:00:32.:00:32.

There are games afoot across the nation and one results

:00:33.:00:38.

already determined - let's have a look, shall we?

:00:39.:00:48.

The lunchtime match, leaders Celtic one against Aberdeen. The game is

:00:49.:00:57.

underway currently, Dundee one up, Dundee the bottom club. Plenty of

:00:58.:01:09.

goals at the park, too. Rangers 3-0 up at home. In the championship,

:01:10.:01:21.

four games on. No goals at Tannadice. There is a game kicking

:01:22.:01:33.

off at 5:15pm. Right back to the match of the day

:01:34.:01:36.

at the top of the Premiership. There were seven points

:01:37.:01:39.

between leaders Celtic and Aberdeen There are now ten

:01:40.:01:41.

after Celtic's 1-0 win. Here's Liam Mcleod with his story

:01:42.:01:44.

of the match. Celtic when again, and yet another

:01:45.:01:55.

huge mug of the champions, who go well clear at the championship --

:01:56.:02:05.

huge one for the champions. It deceived Joe Lewis and gave the

:02:06.:02:07.

champions the leader. Armstrong should have made it two at the

:02:08.:02:13.

break, but contrived to miss from two yards with the goal gaping. But

:02:14.:02:18.

for Lewis, it would have been more handsome scoreline. He twice, with

:02:19.:02:24.

the best coming from Scott Sinclair effort. The Dons through what they

:02:25.:02:32.

had at the visitors, shinny went close as well. It is only October,

:02:33.:02:38.

but in Aberdeen title challenge looks to be the stuff of fantasy

:02:39.:02:45.

this campaign. Just one goal there, but plenty across the country. There

:02:46.:02:49.

has been another at Fir Park between Motherwell and Ross County. Let us

:02:50.:02:56.

say hello to our reporter. It'll be too little too late for Ross County,

:02:57.:03:01.

but they have a goal in this game. It is Alex Sharp who has them on the

:03:02.:03:06.

scoresheet this afternoon. County have been poor, but at Alex Sharp

:03:07.:03:10.

has at least even the fans something to cheer. Let's return to that big

:03:11.:03:16.

Match of the Day, the one at lunch time between Aberdeen and Celtic. We

:03:17.:03:19.

Match of the Day, the one at lunch can hear from both managers and

:03:20.:03:23.

indeed a Celtic player. First up, it is the Dons boss. There's acceptable

:03:24.:03:30.

way of losing games, and today was one of them. Too often I have seen

:03:31.:03:37.

teams play against Celtic. But really, try and have a go against

:03:38.:03:43.

them. I think the danger of that need don't begin to be too

:03:44.:03:48.

stretched. Today, they found the quality from the Finnish. We've

:03:49.:03:51.

shown moments of great football. We pressed the game very well. Moments

:03:52.:03:57.

where there are direct and going long into the box, we had to stand

:03:58.:04:01.

up and be counted. It is a tough place to come. I think it has shown

:04:02.:04:05.

that over a period of time. I thought it was an outstanding result

:04:06.:04:09.

for us on the back of what has been a difficult week. Of games. To get

:04:10.:04:15.

the three points, keep another clean sheet, create many chances and win

:04:16.:04:19.

the game was very pleasing. Always a tough game. Aberdeen did all they

:04:20.:04:22.

the game was very pleasing. Always a could to beat us, and try to bully

:04:23.:04:27.

us, but I think today we showed this other side of our game that we can

:04:28.:04:32.

also play the physical game. That's what a team of completion is about.

:04:33.:04:40.

The manager saying there are acceptable ways to win a game and I

:04:41.:04:45.

was one of them, do you agree? I saw there are good in the first half.

:04:46.:04:48.

There wasn't a lot in it in terms of chances. In the second half, Celtic

:04:49.:04:54.

up their level. If it wasn't for the Aberdeen goalkeeper, and the save he

:04:55.:04:58.

makes from Sinclair was shot in the top corner was unbelievable. There

:04:59.:05:03.

are two or three other good saves. They could have won by more, but in

:05:04.:05:10.

the end was a great save that kept the score 1-0. Quite a good header.

:05:11.:05:14.

Celtic uncatchable now, but they also looking like the could be

:05:15.:05:20.

unbeaten? A tough question, because there's a long way to go. They are

:05:21.:05:27.

looking very good. If you look at their team selection against Ross

:05:28.:05:30.

County the other night, it's like they have another team just waiting

:05:31.:05:34.

to come in. Brendan will be absolutely delighted with that

:05:35.:05:37.

result. Aberdeen beat Celtic twice last year. At Pittodrie. There might

:05:38.:05:46.

have had a clever multi--- there might have had a penalty. I've

:05:47.:05:56.

worked with shinny macro. Said he didn't get clip then? I thought it

:05:57.:06:01.

was a penalty. That go back to the games that are underway. That

:06:02.:06:05.

started Ibrox, Rangers against Kilmarnock. Rangers fans will be

:06:06.:06:09.

happy with this. 3-0 up. Goals from Captain Lee Wallace. The third of

:06:10.:06:20.

the season and second of the week, they are 3-0 up against Kilmarnock.

:06:21.:06:27.

Let us move on to the home of Inverness, Tulloch Caledonian

:06:28.:06:32.

Stadium. They are to home to hearts this afternoon. Let us call upon

:06:33.:06:38.

Martin Dowden. An absolute cracker here. A brilliant finish after great

:06:39.:06:50.

work to level. Doumbouya, Hearts back in it. They got level through

:06:51.:06:56.

across, pastoral onto the net. Doran nicked possession brilliantly. Great

:06:57.:07:05.

goals, there may well be more. Will hear more if there are. John Barnes

:07:06.:07:10.

is watching St Johnstone against Partick Thistle. We have to be

:07:11.:07:14.

content with a point apiece, he says. It is currently 1-1, both

:07:15.:07:19.

goals coming in the space of 60 seconds in the first half. A free

:07:20.:07:27.

kick in. At the back post, Doolan was there to hit it in. Stephen

:07:28.:07:34.

Maclean with a shot from eight yards. It is 1-0. Too far park, and

:07:35.:07:39.

we can hear once again from Jonathan. -- far park. The ball got

:07:40.:07:51.

rolling early doors. Then there was an own goal from Van der Weg. Tait

:07:52.:07:56.

fired home to make it 3-0, before aims worse made it 4-0. Motherwell

:07:57.:08:07.

very much on top. They have had a goal pulled back, but it will be a

:08:08.:08:11.

consolation. This will be nine games without a win for Ross County, quite

:08:12.:08:17.

worrying. To Hamilton, Dundee visitors this afternoon. Dundee at

:08:18.:08:22.

the bottom club. How is it going? The first half was 45 minutes long,

:08:23.:08:25.

and that's all you need to know about that. The second has been

:08:26.:08:30.

better. Dundee are ahead by 1-0. It came after 61 minutes. It was

:08:31.:08:36.

McGowan at the edge of the box. Another try to get a backheel on it,

:08:37.:08:40.

didn't get a touch. It beat goalkeeper, who was diving. Since

:08:41.:08:42.

the goalkeeper, who was diving. Since then Dundee have been a much

:08:43.:08:46.

more confident side. Hamilton have in themselves today. They beat

:08:47.:08:50.

Aberdeen here during the week, but trying to fight harder and

:08:51.:08:53.

equaliser. At the moment, good news for Dundee, the bottom club, leading

:08:54.:09:07.

1-0 -- leading 1-0. He Banyan -- Hibernian. Sparkling form for the

:09:08.:09:10.

home side this afternoon. Opening the scoring after eight minutes. The

:09:11.:09:19.

second 11 minutes before the break. Cruising. Dundee United have just

:09:20.:09:28.

gone one up. The goals are coming in thick and fast. I don't actually

:09:29.:09:31.

know where to begin! Let's go to Inverness. Join your firm account

:09:32.:09:38.

the -- former club. They are due one. The last time, it was 5-1. I

:09:39.:09:46.

fancied Inverness. They are a good side and if you can keep their own

:09:47.:09:51.

injury free, you'll get anyone in the league. Interesting team

:09:52.:09:55.

selection from Hearts. They haven't been scoring a lot of goals. After

:09:56.:09:59.

the disappointing performance against Kilmarnock during the week,

:10:00.:10:04.

he busy fancied changes. It was a really good goal in the first half.

:10:05.:10:07.

He's trying to claim a second goal, but doesn't budget. It is just

:10:08.:10:11.

across. It is one of those that misses and deceives the goalkeeper.

:10:12.:10:22.

Another eye-catching school with Motherwell and Ross County. I didn't

:10:23.:10:25.

see that one coming. Quite a change today. They have certainly made up

:10:26.:10:32.

for it from midweek. If you see the first goal, McDonald's header. Ross

:10:33.:10:42.

County will be very disappointed. They came down the right-hand side,

:10:43.:10:46.

the full-back, all the way and smashed it into the post. The

:10:47.:10:48.

goalkeeper will be very disappointed, folks. It's great,

:10:49.:10:58.

they were struggling. They were struggling to score goals a few

:10:59.:11:01.

weeks ago, and you wonder whether he has changed the emphasis to scoring

:11:02.:11:07.

goals, now they are leaking goals. You wonder if there is a small

:11:08.:11:11.

hang-up to the success they had last year. There is this a bit of

:11:12.:11:14.

stillness when they came back, like Inverness, winning the cup. It will

:11:15.:11:22.

be put right, I'm sure of that. A poor start to the week after a loss

:11:23.:11:27.

to Celtic in the League Cup and then a jaw against St Johnstone. There

:11:28.:11:35.

had to be a reaction on Wednesday night, per against St Johnstone, it

:11:36.:11:40.

has to be said. It's good to see Ghana getting another goal, that

:11:41.:11:46.

will boost his confidence -- Garner. He had to win today, and it is a

:11:47.:11:53.

good success. They could end the day in second spot? I fancy them to

:11:54.:12:03.

finish second. As we heard America, they have budgeted either. I'm

:12:04.:12:11.

Wolverton fan, as affable podge -- as a football coach, wishing all the

:12:12.:12:15.

best. Some critics say he doesn't have a plan B. What is a plan B? Put

:12:16.:12:24.

a big centre-half upfront? A plan B for me is changing a system. At

:12:25.:12:28.

Inverness, people try to play straight mid-fielding and getting

:12:29.:12:33.

beat and really going for it, that a plan B. He doesn't change his system

:12:34.:12:38.

and tactics either. It's just a case of trying to do it, but doing

:12:39.:12:43.

better, I think you says. Sometimes it can be predictable. Things aren't

:12:44.:12:46.

going to plan for Dundee this season, but today there are 1-0. --

:12:47.:12:56.

they are one up. I'm very pleased with the ball. -- with the goal. It

:12:57.:13:03.

was daily in the stands! With the supporters. They've really needed a

:13:04.:13:07.

result, and I'm pleased for them. When you're doing it and losing

:13:08.:13:11.

games consistently, your confidence goes. And this will give him a

:13:12.:13:16.

boost. Will start the second bounce at Inverness. It is three apiece in

:13:17.:13:25.

that thrilling match. It is still thrilling, 3-3. Inverness is coming

:13:26.:13:38.

up with Gary Warren charging. It came off the post, the referee gave

:13:39.:13:44.

a free kick. They're going toe to toe, will there be a winner? Will

:13:45.:13:50.

find out. Let's had to McDiarmid Park, St Johnstone against Partick

:13:51.:14:00.

Thistle, 1-1. We've just had one for Partick Thistle. That play on the

:14:01.:14:07.

left-hand side. From ten yards out batters it into the back of the net.

:14:08.:14:14.

It is one minute into stoppage time and it is 1-2. Remarkable stuff

:14:15.:14:19.

there. I don't think too many people would have predicted Partick Thistle

:14:20.:14:22.

getting a win. They have them playing reasonably well and getting

:14:23.:14:27.

back-to-back wins is brilliant for them. It's been a brilliant match

:14:28.:14:35.

actually. Very even. St Johnstone will be raging, because to lose at

:14:36.:14:37.

home after a good result during the will be raging, because to lose at

:14:38.:14:42.

week will be disappointing. Jonathan, still 4-1 Motherwell

:14:43.:14:48.

against County? Certainly. Motherwell have an excellent today.

:14:49.:14:52.

Ross County had their problems, but let's not under emphasise how good

:14:53.:14:55.

Motherwell were today. They definitely deserve this victory.

:14:56.:15:01.

It'll be a 4-1 victory. What a great goal for Ainslie. It's been released

:15:02.:15:10.

a week since highlights on Sportscene, that is definitely one

:15:11.:15:15.

to watch. They got two in at the end! Let us hear from Paul Mitchell.

:15:16.:15:21.

Hamilton Dundee, are they still holding on? They are still holding

:15:22.:15:25.

on. We've had a couple of injuries in the second half. Dundee about to

:15:26.:15:30.

make a change. This is just going to waste more time. Hamilton had plenty

:15:31.:15:34.

of the ball in the last ten, 15 minutes but have been unable to

:15:35.:15:40.

break through the back three. Dundee just trying to waste time. Marcus

:15:41.:15:46.

Haber almost going backwards as he's coming off the field. Deep into

:15:47.:15:53.

stoppage time, Dundee lead 1-0. In the championship, off we go to

:15:54.:15:58.

Easter Road. At the top against the bottom. Still 2-0? It is. It has

:15:59.:16:04.

been a championship performance this afternoon by the Easter Road side.

:16:05.:16:09.

Martin Boyle has just received Man of the Match from the sponsors and

:16:10.:16:13.

will get another round of applause as he is being replaced by

:16:14.:16:19.

substitute Alex Harris. Another sitting on the bench this afternoon,

:16:20.:16:26.

terrific decision by the manager. Thank you very much. I believe the

:16:27.:16:32.

first full-time reports are beginning to trickle in. Let us had

:16:33.:16:35.

to Fir Park Stadium, final whistle has gone and it finishes 4-1. Yeah

:16:36.:16:42.

the Motherwell manager told me before the match he wasn't worried

:16:43.:16:45.

about the team pulls back form, despite three straight defeats going

:16:46.:16:51.

into this match. To be fair, he has probably been proven correct.

:16:52.:16:56.

Motherwell got an early goal in this one. It has to be asked about the

:16:57.:17:00.

Ross County defending. The second well goal from Motherwell at the

:17:01.:17:11.

back. Bundled over his own line by the defender Van der Weg. A shot at

:17:12.:17:21.

the near post, seemed to evade the keeper and it was 3-0. Ainsworth

:17:22.:17:26.

then started to enjoy himself. Rounded the goalkeeper to make it

:17:27.:17:30.

4-0. Definitely worth watching on the highlights. As for Ross County,

:17:31.:17:34.

pretty post. This is the ninth game and victory. They did get

:17:35.:17:40.

consolation goal. He looked lively when he came on off the bench. Of

:17:41.:17:49.

the second bottom place. Final score 4-1. Well worth watching on

:17:50.:17:56.

highlights tomorrow! It is full-time in Perth, St Johnstone against

:17:57.:18:02.

Partick Thistle. It has reached its conclusion. A late win for the jags?

:18:03.:18:07.

It sure is. It is the captain leading for example. One minute into

:18:08.:18:13.

stoppage time, claiming the winner for Partick Thistle. They had taken

:18:14.:18:17.

the lead after 70 minutes. Chris Doolin with a close range effort. It

:18:18.:18:23.

was knocked into the back of the net by Doolin. All the drama came late

:18:24.:18:33.

in the second half. Some fine goalkeeping by the St Johnstone

:18:34.:18:36.

goalkeeper. It kept Partick Thistle out, but could do nothing in that

:18:37.:18:42.

minute into stoppage time as the player down the left-hand side, cut

:18:43.:18:47.

the ball out and it was blasted into the top corner of the net. Victory

:18:48.:18:53.

for the side incident as an's 600 competitive fixture. It is all over

:18:54.:19:03.

at Hamilton. A win for Dundee. Joy on the faces of the Dundee players.

:19:04.:19:09.

The body language said it all. Dundee with the first win since

:19:10.:19:14.

opening day in the league. The one who scored in the first one, you

:19:15.:19:18.

made the difference today. The goal that proved just enough. A curb on a

:19:19.:19:21.

very different match, with the first very different match, with the first

:19:22.:19:26.

-- it could have been a very different match. Someone came close

:19:27.:19:34.

three minutes later, great header from the corner. With two chances in

:19:35.:19:38.

their opening four minutes, we expected much but very little came

:19:39.:19:42.

in those 45 minutes. The difference in the second half was Leganes's

:19:43.:19:45.

goal from the edge of the box. It was a trundling shot. Marcus Haber

:19:46.:19:53.

and get out the way. We didn't get it out, it was enough to fall the

:19:54.:19:56.

goalkeeper and the ball nestled in the back of the net. Saluting their

:19:57.:20:01.

fans, much-needed for Dundee this afternoon. It is 1-0. Bye out of

:20:02.:20:11.

there as a huddle on the pitch at Caledonian's Inverness against

:20:12.:20:19.

Hearts, allover? This man securing the point when the visitors in what

:20:20.:20:23.

was absolutely outstanding contest. Inverness took the initiative early

:20:24.:20:31.

on. Doumbouya netted his third goal in three. He finished brilliantly.

:20:32.:20:36.

Hearts got back in it after some poor defending, they equalised when

:20:37.:20:42.

there was a cross sent in. The ball bounced into the corner despite the

:20:43.:20:46.

goalkeeper's best efforts. Inverness went ahead again. Doran went in and

:20:47.:20:55.

brilliantly converted. Hearts pulled straight forward, pushing for an

:20:56.:21:01.

equaliser and got it. In truth, both sides could argue they deserved more

:21:02.:21:08.

after a fantastic 90 minutes. 3-3 at full-time. Full-time at Ibrox, and

:21:09.:21:15.

Rangers have won that 3-0. That victory good enough to take Rangers

:21:16.:21:19.

to second spot in the table. Goals from Neil Wallace, Andy Halliday and

:21:20.:21:25.

Joe Garner, giving them a 3-0 win over Kilmarnock. Let us had to

:21:26.:21:31.

Easter Road in the championship. Ward at home to the bottom club this

:21:32.:21:38.

afternoon. It is over once again. It finished 2-0. It really was a Martin

:21:39.:21:44.

Boyle this afternoon -- Martin Boyle show, justifying him being on rather

:21:45.:21:52.

than the top scorer this afternoon. Great composure to clip the ball

:21:53.:21:58.

over the advancing opener. Boil or so with a hand in the second goal,

:21:59.:22:05.

bouncing around the visitors Martyn yard. Simone should have been ahead

:22:06.:22:13.

early on, but an effort was cleared off the line. It was pulled down

:22:14.:22:21.

inside the box, the referee pointed to the spot. Probably just about the

:22:22.:22:29.

only saving grace for St Mirren this afternoon. It finished here at

:22:30.:22:33.

Easter Road, 2-0. Letters find out how second placed Dundee fad. They

:22:34.:22:42.

are at home this afternoon. -- Dundee fad. It is enough to give

:22:43.:22:50.

United a victory. The defender is playing his first game after a

:22:51.:22:57.

suspension. A bit cruel on the Falkirk keeper, who made a string of

:22:58.:23:03.

important saves, particularly denying Norwich striker Tony Andrew

:23:04.:23:07.

on a couple of occasions. He also urged to parry the ball away when

:23:08.:23:11.

they looked set to scoring the second half. United creating the

:23:12.:23:14.

better chances, but Falkirk were always a danger the counterattack.

:23:15.:23:25.

Three chances. In one, try to get through on the goalkeeper but it was

:23:26.:23:30.

a comfortable save. In the end, that was vital for Dundee United. Five

:23:31.:23:34.

games unbeaten since their last at Falkirk last month. Hibernian

:23:35.:23:44.

looking good? I fancy them to go on and win it. Especially at home, they

:23:45.:23:47.

are a good side. I'm a little bit surprised that Cummings is finding

:23:48.:23:55.

himself on the bench. Dundee United, a fantastic result. Keeps them right

:23:56.:24:01.

on the tale of Hibernian. In the Premiership, Rangers up to second. A

:24:02.:24:06.

terrible week it's been for them? At the start of the season, I predicted

:24:07.:24:10.

they would finish second. And I think a lot of people, you know,

:24:11.:24:15.

predicted the same thing. It has been patchy, their form, but if they

:24:16.:24:19.

can stay in second and maintain that, you are right talking about

:24:20.:24:24.

the budgets. They have foreign away the second-biggest budget in the

:24:25.:24:27.

league and they should be second -- far and away. Why do we get has been

:24:28.:24:33.

for Partick Thistle. Two wins away from home. Yes, and he was linked

:24:34.:24:41.

with the job at Shrewsbury, stayed at Partick Thistle. That has turned

:24:42.:24:47.

around for him and I'm absolutely delighted, because he's a smashing

:24:48.:24:52.

bloke. Football's about momentum. Anyway get momentum and confidence

:24:53.:24:57.

is results. Ross County suffering a lack of momentum. Unfortunately, a

:24:58.:25:03.

country bought their momentum was a few weeks ago. They are struggling

:25:04.:25:09.

very badly. But you have to give credit to Motherwell, because they

:25:10.:25:14.

had to show reaction after midweek, their 3-0 loss. And to come back

:25:15.:25:20.

today and win 4-1. John is right, they're defending, we watched the

:25:21.:25:23.

game coming in. Some of the defending was abysmal from Ross

:25:24.:25:29.

County. There's a lot of work to be done. What you think has gone wrong?

:25:30.:25:35.

That was one of their strengths. I don't know. The goals they are

:25:36.:25:38.

losing are far too easy. The first one was from six yards out, header.

:25:39.:25:43.

He was not the tallest player, certainly one that should be up in

:25:44.:25:50.

the box. That's not good enough. There was another one, the writeback

:25:51.:25:53.

runs and challenged 40 yards with the ball then hit a decent strike --

:25:54.:26:02.

the right back, Tait. An awful lot of work to be done. The Dundee

:26:03.:26:10.

United players were on the pitch in a huddle. Picture shows, I'm

:26:11.:26:16.

absolutely delighted for Paul, because he's going through a hard

:26:17.:26:23.

time. He needed a result. Saying before that, just keep a clean

:26:24.:26:26.

sheet, or get a draw. Just take something. That gives him a bit of

:26:27.:26:31.

hope. He works hard and I'm delighted they got that result. And

:26:32.:26:35.

that is their second win, their first on the first overseas and.

:26:36.:26:39.

They were desperate for a win. When you're in that run, you just need to

:26:40.:26:43.

stop. You need any kind of result, a clean sheet, a 0-0. For much of the

:26:44.:26:48.

match, declared it would be 1-0. Obviously they popped up with the

:26:49.:26:55.

winner. Letters go straight without any further delay to today's

Sunderland, still without a win, three points adrift of Swansea city.

We've been on a bad run by Kant thought my players. A beautiful away

fixture. Hamilton didn't really threaten us. We deserve that win

:33:45.:33:50.

today. We were the better team. You've made a few changes. You

:33:51.:33:56.

looked like a different site today. We were different site, a site that

tell you the truth. They are going to be harder to beat, keep clean

the dressing room. Who do you think Pater back. He's a big character in

the match on three separate occasions, because Inverness when

two goals up. It was absolutely pulsate in March. It looks like

:35:20.:35:25.

Celtic eased into the title, but we've got some scrappy play in bits.

:35:26.:35:32.

I think the teams in the top six, I don't think there will be much

:35:33.:35:36.

difference, come the end of the season, but the league is so tight

:35:37.:35:42.

that anybody can beat anybody, apart from Celtic who are clear favourites

:35:43.:35:46.

are better than everybody else. Do you fancy Rangers for second? I

think they will strengthen, come the window. You will see wacko oncoming
