We have seen the last of the SPL for 2012. We will have these two

Gary Robson! That is a superb free But what does save from Jamie

0:00:390:00:49
0:00:490:00:55

Aberdeen goalkeeper Jamie Langfield is here. First Easter Road, Hibs

0:00:550:01:00

have only won one game in seven, and Celtic are almost six game-

0:01:000:01:10
0:01:100:01:15

seven SPL games. Looking through reaction against the SPL leaders.

0:01:150:01:25
0:01:250:01:29

Griffiths. Their goal drought is over for him. His 14th of the

0:01:290:01:38

season. Celtic claimed he was offside. Emilio Izaguirre seemed to

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

kick from Leigh Griffiths. Hibernian have not beaten Celtic in

0:02:010:02:11
0:02:110:02:11

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

0:02:110:02:56

more than four years here. They are going 10 points clear at the top of

0:02:560:03:06
0:03:060:03:27

the league with a victory here. scuff it. Another big chance for

0:03:270:03:33

Hibernian. Celtic have had more possession but Hibernian have had

0:03:330:03:43
0:03:430:04:01

Hibernian have defended superbly in this game. They looked a different

0:04:010:04:11
0:04:110:04:32

animal from the one they lost to with the left foot. He has scored

0:04:320:04:36

several Celtic goals from outside the penalty area. That was a really

0:04:370:04:46
0:04:470:04:55

taking anything from this game disappeared over the crossbar with

0:04:550:05:05
0:05:050:05:13

good save by Ben Williams. Brilliant save. This took a

0:05:130:05:17

horrible deflection off James McPake. Ben Williams somehow clawed

0:05:170:05:24

it is safety. One goal did it for Hibernian. It takes Leigh Griffiths

0:05:240:05:29

back to the top of the scoring chart alongside Billy Mackay. Niall

0:05:290:05:37

McGinn is just behind him. That was a classy finish. Unbelievable

0:05:370:05:40

a classy finish. Unbelievable finish. You see his first touch,

0:05:400:05:47

not the best defending from Celtic. Great finish. That angle is never

0:05:470:05:54

easy. He put a bit of pace on it as well. He is right-back in the goals

0:05:540:06:00

with that. Fantastic finish. The Hibernian fans are obviously

0:06:000:06:03

desperate he stays beyond January. Our Hibernian under pressure to

0:06:030:06:09

keep him? You would think so. His goal ratio has been incredible this

0:06:090:06:17

year. He is a handful to play against. 14 goals, is it? That is

0:06:170:06:24

great. The Hibernian will be desperate to keep him, but

0:06:240:06:29

hopefully they cannot for the other teams in the SPL. You say he's a

0:06:290:06:33

handful to play against, is one problem that he is liable to shoot

0:06:330:06:38

from anywhere? That is a problem you have got with him. The minute

0:06:380:06:43

he get half a yard on a defender he will put it. He can get the ball to

0:06:430:06:49

move all over the place. It is that such a hard thing to deal with as a

0:06:490:06:59

goalkeeper. Is he as clean striker of the ball in the SPL as there is?

0:06:590:07:04

He is. That is why his goals ratio has been great this year. If he

0:07:040:07:09

stayed at Hibernian it would be great for them. Disappointing

0:07:090:07:13

results for Celtic but they are still six clear at the top. You

0:07:130:07:17

played for Celtic in the Champions League last 16, how big an

0:07:170:07:22

achievement is that? An amazing achievement, you need to give

0:07:220:07:27

credit to kneel, he rebuilt the side. He has built a very good side.

0:07:270:07:31

-- credit to Neil Lennon. To get to the last 16, the way they did it,

0:07:310:07:38

beating Barcelona, is amazing. The one thing that is affecting them is

0:07:380:07:43

missing Rangers in the league. The mindset has creaked then now that

0:07:430:07:51

Rangers are not there. There must be a different intensity. It is,

0:07:510:07:56

you come back off the back of a Champions League game, the next

0:07:560:08:03

game three days later after that is hard. You come from that to a

0:08:030:08:10

Premier League game. Now that the Champions League is a month away,

0:08:110:08:16

it has creaked into them that they can relax, get away with it. Neil

0:08:170:08:21

Lennon will stand back into them. Credit to Hibernian, they had some

0:08:210:08:29

clear cut chances and could have scored a few more goals. Seven

0:08:300:08:34

points in November for Dundee but only one in December. They had a

0:08:340:08:44
0:08:440:08:50

the ground after finding themselves at the bottom of the SPL. That was

0:08:500:09:00
0:09:000:09:22

a good chance. Kevin McBride. He one. Play will be stopped. The

0:09:220:09:28

referee is allowing Andrew Considine to be attended to. He

0:09:280:09:38

just takes there. That does not look good for Andrew Considine.

0:09:380:09:43

Colin Nish lining up a free kick. That was not far away at all from

0:09:430:09:53
0:09:530:10:11

attack. That was well cut out by Rab Douglas. Good effort from the

0:10:110:10:18

winner. Barry Smith trying to work out how to make the breakthrough

0:10:180:10:28

but it is Aberdeen! Guess who? Niall McGinn. Once again, his 11th

0:10:280:10:33

goal of the season for Aberdeen. He will not score many easier goals.

0:10:330:10:43
0:10:430:10:54

leaving Gallagher in his wake. This is a chance for Aberdeen. It was

0:10:540:11:01

Scott Vernon who got on the end of it. A lovely counter-attack from

0:11:010:11:11
0:11:110:11:26

the and visitors -- from the that. Joe Shaughnessy fancied his

0:11:260:11:36
0:11:360:11:55

Second goal for Niall McGinn. A second for Aberdeen. Lovely flick

0:11:550:12:05
0:12:050:12:09

from the striker. He puts his side Dundee have a lifeline eight

0:12:090:12:17

minutes from time. Jamie Langfield could not keep it out and the

0:12:170:12:27
0:12:270:12:27

substitute, Mark Stewart, gets on the scoresheet. All to play for now.

0:12:270:12:37
0:12:370:12:46

Niall McGinn bundles in a hat- trick! That is the victory secured.

0:12:460:12:53

Dreadful defending by Dundee. Rab Douglas's goalkeeping, it was a

0:12:530:12:57

good save in fairness but he did not cover himself in glory there.

0:12:570:13:06

Niall McGinn taking full advantage. He secured victory for Aberdeen.

0:13:060:13:10

When you look at where Aberdeen are halfway through the season, it

0:13:100:13:14

seems pretty decent, but I sense you are disappointed with results

0:13:140:13:18

you are disappointed with results overall? We know the results we had

0:13:180:13:23

at home could have been a lot more or points, but given the injury

0:13:230:13:29

list, the last couple months, we have fallen away a pet. We lost our

0:13:290:13:33

midfielders and we have had boys like Scott Vernon filling in at

0:13:330:13:38

midfield, if you take the midfield out of any team in the SPL you miss

0:13:380:13:43

it. The people that have come and have done well, and Saturday was a

0:13:430:13:48

great result away to Dundee after the game against Motherwell, when

0:13:480:13:53

we were disappointed. To go there and score goals, all this we were

0:13:530:14:03
0:14:030:14:04

disappointed to lose one but it was The sad part was the broken leg for

0:14:040:14:08

Considine. It was horrible. Everyone in the ground heard the

0:14:080:14:13

noise. We were all praying it was his shin pad that snapped. But

0:14:130:14:18

we're hearing that it was his tib ya and he will be in plaster for 12

0:14:180:14:24

weeks ch I think he was getting an operation today to get pins in it.

0:14:240:14:28

But he's at a great club and his team mates will rally around him

0:14:280:14:32

and the club will rally around him and hopefully he comes back

0:14:320:14:35

stronger. Last year, he was the Player of the Year and he started

0:14:350:14:40

to do the same this season. good news for Aberdeen was another

0:14:400:14:45

starring role from Niall McGinn. Barry, when you were at Celtic, he

0:14:450:14:50

was on the fringes of the team and he played in a wide position.

0:14:500:14:57

Through middle, he can't stop scoring. When I was at Celtic, Tony

0:14:570:15:03

Mowbray liked him and played him a Mowbray liked him and played him a

0:15:030:15:08

bit wide. I looked at him and thought he was a wide player, but

0:15:080:15:12

maybe Craig Brown has seen something in him. But he is flying

0:15:120:15:17

and things are falling for him. He needs to keep on scoring and if he

0:15:170:15:22

keeps on he could ends up the top scorer in the division. He looks

0:15:220:15:26

confident and he is fit and agile and quick. You see there is the

0:15:260:15:32

confidence, relaxed finishing. That is what top strikers have got and

0:15:320:15:38

he could do well. At this rate he could be heading for 25 goals.

0:15:380:15:43

and that would be great for a team like ourselfs to a striker getting

0:15:430:15:50

25 goals a season. He has taken his chances and get - o' getting into

0:15:500:15:56

positions, where he was a winger, but he looks like an out and out

0:15:560:15:59

striker. He is always there when the ball is getting knocked down to

0:15:590:16:04

put it in the goal. He has done well for us for the first half of

0:16:040:16:12

the season. Hopefully we /- he can carry on. Duncan shearer or Billy

0:16:120:16:17

Dodds is the last one. It is great for Aberdeen. So they have a real

0:16:170:16:22

chance of climbing the table. hard to believe it was 18 month ago

0:16:220:16:27

that you suffered that brain seizure and a really worrying

0:16:270:16:32

moment. What has it done to your football. Does it change your

0:16:320:16:37

perspective? Yes, it's made me have a different outlook. I'm thoroughly

0:16:370:16:42

enjoying it. I don't let things beat me up as much and try not get

0:16:420:16:48

down if we get beat or I have made a mistake, as you do. But I'm

0:16:480:16:52

enjoying myself at Aberdeen and I'm at a great club that look after me

0:16:520:16:57

and has looked after me through my illness. I'm just enjoying it and

0:16:570:17:02

I'm glad to be back playing. A word about Dundee, your former team,

0:17:020:17:06

they still have a place in your heart, are they doomed? No, I

0:17:060:17:15

wouldn't say so. I know parry Smith well. -- Barry Smith. There were in

0:17:150:17:19

a predarious position at the start of season, coming into the league

0:17:190:17:25

with two weeks' notice. And it was haar for them. They're not in the

0:17:250:17:29

best position now, but you never know what can happen. It is such a

0:17:300:17:34

congested league and you could go on a run and pick up points as

0:17:340:17:39

easily as any other team. They hopefully for the like of Barry

0:17:390:17:44

Smith they can do that. It could be European football for Inverness if

0:17:440:17:49

nay maintain momentum. They ended the year in Perth against St

0:17:490:17:59
0:17:590:18:06

Johnstone at the match was Paul the Billy MacKay. Flashes the ball

0:18:060:18:10

wide. Inside two minutes, Inverness, who have scored in every game this

0:18:100:18:18

season, create their first chance. Fraser Wright seemed to commit.

0:18:180:18:20

MacKay hurtled over him, steadied himself on to the favoured right

0:18:200:18:30
0:18:300:18:42

with the save. Again Caley Thistle through MacKay caused problems down

0:18:420:18:47

this left hand side. Shinnie got away from Craig, but the advancing

0:18:470:18:57
0:18:570:19:04

keeper proved too much for him. Reguero fists this away. Good call

0:19:040:19:10

from the keeper. Craig with the corner, Tade is up. He couldn't

0:19:100:19:13

connect with the ball. Four goals this season, Tade, and this is a

0:19:130:19:20

chance that has passed him by. Got up well, but missed it. McCracken -

0:19:200:19:28

off the line from Tudur-Jones. Craig falls down, that could be a

0:19:280:19:31

yellow card for simulation. David Raven certainly was far from happy.

0:19:310:19:38

Well the header off the line came from Tudur-Jones. McCracken away.

0:19:380:19:43

He took up a good position at the edge of the box. He came to meet

0:19:430:19:53

him and the dive was clear. Doran with the chance for the opener.

0:19:530:19:58

Mannus was strong and clipped away. Good play from Paddy Craig. Caley

0:19:580:20:02

Thistle again finding joy on the left. Shinnie, lovely touch from

0:20:020:20:07

MacKay, into the path of Doran, just one goal this term. Almost two,

0:20:070:20:17
0:20:170:20:44

Davidson clipped it in. Tade, lovely shimmy, moved away from

0:20:440:20:50

Warren, got away from Shinnie, Reguero did his job. It is a great

0:20:500:20:52

block from Warren and slightly acrobatic by Warren and 9.8 for

0:20:520:21:02
0:21:020:21:36

technical merit as Craig swung it Mannus out again. Good play from

0:21:360:21:42

the keeper. So shock, horror, Inverness fail to score. Some of

0:21:420:21:49

the credit goes to Alan Mannus. How good is he? Yes, this season he has

0:21:490:21:52

been brilliant. As you see yesterday, he has had a couple of

0:21:520:21:57

great saves again. And I remember watching him last week against us

0:21:570:22:05

and the game he had, he played against Niall McGinn by himself at

0:22:050:22:09

Pittodrie. Some of his saves were brilliant. He stopped it from being

0:22:090:22:13

a rout. He has done well and the standard of goalkeeping in the SPL

0:22:130:22:18

has been good and he has been one of them. I don't think he arrived

0:22:180:22:22

with a big reputation, but he is doing just that. What a save that

0:22:220:22:30

was with a deflection off the wall. Doran was in a paper making a noise

0:22:300:22:35

about a penalty claim. Barry, what do you reckon? When he sees this

0:22:350:22:39

back, I don't think there is much in that. I don't see where he is

0:22:390:22:44

coming from. Craig has put his arm out, but for me it has never ban

0:22:440:22:48

personality. I have been known to go down easily in the box myself, I

0:22:480:22:52

don't think he will claim that. I think he has got that wrong. That

0:22:520:22:57

is not a personality. He is maybe thinking that because Craig put his

0:22:570:23:01

arm across. But he is never getting that. You were an Inverness player,

0:23:010:23:06

what have you made of their performance this season, second in

0:23:060:23:12

the SPL, top goal scorers, maybe heading for Europe? Hen you see

0:23:120:23:18

what Terry Butcher has den, he broke up that team and because they

0:23:180:23:23

were getting older and produced this young team from nowhere. It is

0:23:230:23:27

people that one has heard of. To get players up to Inverness where

0:23:270:23:32

that is not that much money and you're way up in the north, it is

0:23:320:23:36

an unbelievable job. And to get players that score goals, that is

0:23:360:23:41

the hardst thing to do. It must be great for the fans. Sometimes if

0:23:410:23:45

you're going to be free-flowing the back door is not always shut. But

0:23:450:23:50

the fans will love the entertain. You have to give credit to Terry.

0:23:500:23:56

He has done a terrific job. Have they surprised you? Yes, they score

0:23:560:24:02

goals for fun. McKay's flying. He is scoring, I think he has got 12

0:24:020:24:07

in seven games. He is flying. didn't score yesterday though.

0:24:070:24:12

it is 12 in eight. But he is flying. Obviously, they're creating goals

0:24:120:24:19

all over the pitch. One of the most important players is Ritchie Foran.

0:24:190:24:27

He gives everything for them. They surprised me a lot this year. But

0:24:270:24:32

what Terry Butcher produces doesn't surprise me. That has killed the

0:24:320:24:36

theiry that goalkeepers can't count. Kilmarnock want consistency. Two

0:24:360:24:42

wins and a draw was as good as it God for them. Could they keep it

0:24:420:24:52
0:24:520:24:58

this match and a minute's applause as a mark of respect on the fifth

0:24:580:25:00

anniversary of the death of the Motherwell captain, Phil O'Donnell.

0:25:010:25:03

Humphrey cutting it back for Higdon and Cammy Bell well positioned

0:25:030:25:13
0:25:130:25:28

there. That almost topped off the blistering strike that was from the

0:25:280:25:32

Spanish striker. And Kilmarnock in front. The break of the ball coming

0:25:320:25:36

off Hutchison. Perez with the finish which will please his

0:25:360:25:46
0:25:460:25:53

Jamie Murphy with the follow up after Higdon's effort had been

0:25:530:25:59

blocked. Murphy with plenty of scouts in the stands keeping an eye

0:25:590:26:09
0:26:090:26:10

on him. So much speculation over his future. Motherwell starting

0:26:100:26:13

this match in third position. Kilmarnock, well they are in sixth.

0:26:130:26:19

Heffernan! And blocked by Randolf and away by Hutchison. Heffernan so

0:26:190:26:21

close to putting Killie 2-0 in front, but excellent defending by

0:26:220:26:31
0:26:320:26:32

Hutchinson. That will please Stuart McCall. Hately's corner. A good

0:26:330:26:35

ball from Murphy. It was cleared by Perez this time. The striker

0:26:360:26:45
0:26:460:27:06

turning that away. Sheridan had the opportunity there when he was clean

0:27:060:27:16
0:27:160:27:22

through to add to Killie's tally. A good stop by Randolph, but Paul

0:27:220:27:26

Heffernan is there ready to pounce. It was well won at the front post,

0:27:260:27:29

Randolf did well to get a touch on it. But Heffernan playing the

0:27:290:27:31

poacher's roles it 2-0 to Kilmarnock just beyond the hour

0:27:320:27:41
0:27:420:27:58

back in the game. Jamie Murphy. McHugh with the initial shot and

0:27:580:28:02

Murphy only a yard out turning it home for his 11th goal of the

0:28:020:28:12
0:28:120:28:23

season. It's his fifth in his last terrific coal as well from the

0:28:230:28:25

Estonian international. The Kilmarnock keeper hadn't an earthly

0:28:250:28:28

with that one. Terrific curling effort. Assisted by the left

0:28:280:28:38
0:28:380:28:45

upright. And Motherwell back level at 2-2. Motherwell keen for the

0:28:450:28:55
0:28:550:29:05

Nelson. Appeals it came off his arm. Nelson. Appeals it came off his arm.

0:29:050:29:07

The referee says corner kick. The highlight of the game was that

0:29:080:29:12

tribute five years on, from the death of Phil O'Donnell. It mu

0:29:120:29:18

bring it pack for you, you were on the pitch the day he died. Yes,

0:29:180:29:22

it's terrible and it's great everyone remembers him and he was a

0:29:220:29:29

terrific player. He did great at Celtic. And he would probably have

0:29:290:29:33

been in management in Scotland, or coaching, he was very well thought

0:29:330:29:39

of in this country and he is a big miss. It is a shame for his family

0:29:390:29:42

and everyone in Scottish football. It is a sad loss when you get

0:29:420:29:47

players that have done so well and they're not with us any more. It is

0:29:470:29:57
0:29:570:29:59

Two great goals in the game. There has been some great football in the

0:29:590:30:04

SPL, and this was a great finish. Yes, it is a great finish. The

0:30:040:30:08

goalkeeper was not stopping that. He came in and settled into the way

0:30:080:30:16

Kilmarnock play. He looks like a great signing for Kenny Shiels.

0:30:160:30:23

This is the young Estonian, this is some goal. It he beat two players

0:30:230:30:28

then takes it in, put it in the far post. What a finish that is. He

0:30:280:30:34

looks a real talent. Managers are doing a great job are unearthing

0:30:340:30:39

talent, then every transfer window it is then going. It would be great

0:30:390:30:43

to build the game up. But it looks like they might lose these players,

0:30:430:30:49

Jamie Murphy as well. What a terrific finish it was. You could

0:30:490:30:54

watch it all day. This was Jamie Murphy scoring what might be his

0:30:540:30:59

last goal for Motherwell. It suggests that he will be away. This

0:30:590:31:05

was a tap-in for him. Scored a lot of goals recently. Interesting to

0:31:050:31:15
0:31:150:31:15

examine the body language after the match. Does this suggest he is off?

0:31:150:31:22

Possibly he is just saying goodbye to 2012. I'm not so sure. The the

0:31:220:31:27

Motherwell fans will be gutted because he is doing well. There has

0:31:270:31:33

been lots of speculation for him. He will be delighted if he's got a

0:31:330:31:41

move lined up, and if not, he will be delighted to stay. There was a

0:31:410:31:45

penalty claim for Motherwell. They could have won the game if they got

0:31:450:31:53

a penalty here. What did you think? The we've got the opportunity to

0:31:530:31:57

see it again and again but it comes through at some pace and he was

0:31:570:32:07
0:32:070:32:10

trying to get his hand out of the way. We the ball was on target.

0:32:100:32:15

is hard to get your hand out of the way, but the letter of the law says

0:32:150:32:23

it is a handball. The goalkeeper could have been work. Where does it

0:32:230:32:27

stop? It means people will be jumping about the 18-yard box with

0:32:270:32:37
0:32:370:32:37

their hands behind their backs. I don't think it's a penalty.

0:32:370:32:41

Mirren were third in the League in September and one point off bottom.

0:32:410:32:45

They have rallied and against Dundee United they were looking to

0:32:450:32:55
0:32:550:33:10

slips, low ball across, the visitors have the lead! Great ball

0:33:100:33:17

from Gary Teale. St Mirren have had trouble scoring in the opening 20

0:33:170:33:27
0:33:270:33:49

man who scored the winner when these sides met in October gets his

0:33:490:33:59
0:33:590:34:03

first sight of goal and drags it knocked away. That was a push on

0:34:040:34:13
0:34:140:34:32

Watson goes to the byline and sense in the cross. The goalkeeper was

0:34:320:34:37

impeded and it will not count. Johnny Russell was in the way. Jon

0:34:370:34:47
0:34:470:34:52

Daly with the finish. The referee it was a push on Jon Daly and it is

0:34:520:35:02
0:35:020:35:03

a penalty. Dundee United have the chance to respond. Great ball

0:35:030:35:06

played in by Barry Douglas. The file was obvious and the penalty

0:35:060:35:16
0:35:160:35:41

for the shot and it has gone! Dundee United have turned the first

0:35:410:35:48

half around. They are ahead with two late goals, but Craig Samson

0:35:480:35:58
0:35:580:36:01

will think he should have saved Dundee in August. That is a poor

0:36:010:36:11

ball by Keith Watson, chance for Steven Thompson... He takes it!

0:36:110:36:15

Dundee United were the architects of their own downfall, and Steven

0:36:150:36:25
0:36:250:36:36

Gary Teale knock it down, Mark McAusland! St Mirren are ahead.

0:36:360:36:46
0:36:460:36:58

Mark McAusland is the scorer. Jon and the referee rushes over. It is

0:36:580:37:05

a red card! Straight red card for Bryan MacLean. Dundee United's

0:37:050:37:11

afternoon is getting worse. It did not look malicious but the referee

0:37:110:37:17

deemed it to be a straight red card. No shortage of incident or

0:37:170:37:27
0:37:270:37:33

first and it is in! Nobody is more surprised than David van Zanten.

0:37:330:37:37

The ball was left and the goalkeeper could not react in time.

0:37:370:37:42

David van Zanten gets on the scoresheet. Chance for Dundee

0:37:420:37:47

United from the free kick, and Barry Douglas caused! Probably too

0:37:470:37:51

late for Dundee United to find a 4th goal but Barry Douglas will

0:37:510:38:01
0:38:010:38:01

Another of year-old teams. Are you surprised to see them in the bottom

0:38:010:38:08

half? Yes, but there is a long way to go. They are strong defensively

0:38:090:38:12

and as the season goes on they will score more goals than they concede.

0:38:120:38:22
0:38:220:38:23

They look like they're struggling a bit at the back. They will always

0:38:230:38:26

score goals so if they tighten up they will be all right. They will

0:38:260:38:31

get up near the top three. assistant manager was raging about

0:38:310:38:37

the defending. Maybe the manager could not trust himself. When you

0:38:370:38:44

look back on the goals you can see where he's coming from. Barry

0:38:440:38:47

Douglas lead but it still came across the six-yard box. That is

0:38:470:38:57

what happens. The defender needs to do better there. This one is

0:38:570:39:02

disappointing. There is four Dundee United players around one St Mirren

0:39:020:39:07

player. This one has gone straight through and it is horrible for a

0:39:070:39:16

goalkeeper. It is that the goalkeeper's union? It is horrible

0:39:160:39:20

because the defender leaves it, and it is a horrible ball to deal with.

0:39:200:39:23

To score three goals at home and lose again, no wonder the manager

0:39:230:39:31

is pulling his hair out. They have lost 20 goals this season, they

0:39:310:39:37

have only won twice. This is changed days. They will be all

0:39:370:39:43

right. They have lots of experience. They are good going forward, and

0:39:430:39:46

Peter Fewston will have them working on it throughout the next

0:39:460:39:51

period. -- Peter Houston. They will come good. St Mirren were much

0:39:510:39:55

better at the back, they have had problems at the back, Lee Mair was

0:39:550:40:00

on the bench and he is a good player. They will Mehdi be looking

0:40:000:40:08

at getting him back. The red card, what do we think? The when we sit

0:40:080:40:13

here, and it is slowed down, it looks unfair, but in real time, it

0:40:130:40:20

is possibly a red card. It is so hard to call. The referee has a

0:40:200:40:30
0:40:300:40:42

We are struggling in here to tell. I think it was mistimed. He was

0:40:420:40:46

trying to get out of the way, but it is the way the referee sees it

0:40:460:40:51

and he sees that he went in Hyde. We have been sitting here looking

0:40:510:40:59

at it and we cannot make up our mind. Wanly five matches this

0:40:590:41:04

weekend because in Dingwall, Ross County versus Hearts was called off.

0:41:040:41:09

This was the ground staff trying their best, but the referee decided

0:41:100:41:18

less than one hour before kick-off that it could not go ahead. That

0:41:180:41:28
0:41:280:41:32

inconvenience to a lot of people, There was always a baker who had

0:41:320:41:37

naturally when again is cancelled late on. It is a good touch from

0:41:370:41:46

the owner, but a Hearts fans will get a good night out in Inverness.

0:41:460:41:52

Look on the bright side. It is frustrating but what can you do?

0:41:520:41:57

Sometimes the game can be playable, then the rain flies down, the

0:41:570:42:03

picture becomes unplayable within an hour. The referee needs to make

0:42:030:42:11

a decision. The players do not want to be in danger. It is difficult.

0:42:110:42:20

It is good that the owner did that. We have not had a Vancouver

0:42:200:42:24

Whitecaps player on the programme for rages and suddenly we have two

0:42:240:42:31

in four days. How do you like it? It is different, very different,

0:42:310:42:36

but it has been good. I thought I would try something different. I

0:42:360:42:43

still feel fed and flying and fresh, and I've got a lot of games to play

0:42:430:42:48

over there, Kenny Miller is enjoying it is well and we're

0:42:480:42:58

having a good time. We are enjoying it. The passion and the emotion of

0:42:580:43:05

the game here, you hear the crowds, the opposition is totally different.

0:43:050:43:10

Sometimes you miss that. It is a different experience. It is one

0:43:100:43:17

that I am relishing. The let's look at the Premier League before we go.

0:43:170:43:22

Celtic's lead has been cut but they are still six points ahead.

0:43:220:43:27

are still six points ahead. Inverness and Motherwell are second.

0:43:270:43:35

Hearts are in 9th. St Mirren have moved away from the bottom. The
