  1. Cheers for now

    Sportscene is along at 19:30 on BBC Scotland and there are some cracking goals to check out from today's games.

    We'll be back for more of the same tomorrow, starting with an Edinburgh derby at noon, with Dundee United v Livingston to follow.

  2. 'A lot of positives' for Malky Mackay

    FT: Ross County 1-3 Celtic

    Ross County manager Malky Mackay tells BBC Scotland: "I was really pleased with the game plan and that the players stuck to it.

    "I don't really think Celtic broke us down too many times and I've said to them this is a brand new group testing themselves against a side in the Champions League.

    "We adapted to what Celtic threw at us, I thought we did okay.

    "With 15-20 minutes to go we got a lot of the ball on the break, on the transition, we were a bit wasteful with it and then its five or six minutes to go and they get their second goal

    "There's a lot to be looking at positively for us in the coming weeks."

  3. 'Good start at home important for Aberdeen'

    FT: Aberdeen 4-1 St Mirren

    Aberdeen manager Jim Goodwin speaks to BBC Scotland: "I've not been standing here as manager too often after a 4-1 victory in the league. It was important to get off to a good start at home. Last Sunday was difficult, but it was a great reaction from the players.

    "Some fantastic goals, some decent build up play, some good possession. We probably should have had another two or three goals in the second half. Miovski is disappointed in there, to not have scored a hat-trick. We should have done it a bit quicker. All in all, I'm delighted.

    "Even at eleven-v-eleven we were dominating the ball, as you would expect. I've played against ten men myself in the past, and it's not always quite as straightforward as my players made it look. It can be difficult to break down a solid back line and a compact midfield.

    "Yes it's 4-1 but it should have been six or seven realistically."

  4. 'St Mirren not getting rub of the green'

    FT: Aberdeen 4-1 St Mirren

    St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson tells BBC Scotland: "There's very little in the game for 22 minutes. To come here and play with ten men for seventy odd minutes... it's hard enough with eleven. It makes it an uphill task. It's a double punishment. After that, we showed character in the second half and got into a little.

    "Two of the goals for me were very preventable. The second goal was a cross into the box that we don't defend properly. The fourth goal, we let the centre-forward turn. We can look for reasons, but there's things we can control better as well.

    "Declan (Gallagher) insists that it hit his chest. I haven't seen it so it would be wrong of me to comment on it.

    "The second and fourth goals aren't because we had ten men. We know that as a group. We could have defended that a lot better. We could have stayed in the game longer, they looked edgy at 3-1, but we concede the fourth and it's all over.

    "I can't ask any more from them in terms of attitude and application in the last two games. They've given absolutely everything. They're a brilliant bunch of boys. We haven't had that rub of the green, that lady luck that you need sometimes."

  5. Van Bronckhorst 'very pleased' with Rangers win

    FT: Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock

    Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst told BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound: "Very pleased. It's always a very tough game when you play against opposition who would make it difficult for you to create a lot of space.

    "We were having problems a little bit with creating chances. When you keep pushing, keep pushing, eventually the space will come in the second half.

    "It's very important for the strikers (Antonio Colak and Alfredo Morelos to score), for their confidence and also for Tom Lawrence and Rabbi Matondo to get an assist."

  6. 'Davis still the real deal for Rangers'

    FT: Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock

    Mark Hateley

    Former Rangers striker for BBC Scotland

    Quote Message: The energy and effort was there for Rangers, working hard for each other, winning second balls. It wasn't pretty but the strikers scored and it's a clean sheet. Steven Davis was pulling everything together. He's still the real deal
  7. Celtic did not give in to frustration - Postecoglou

    FT: Ross County 1-3 Celtic

    Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou tells BBC Scotland: “I'm really happy with the result and the performance.

    "It's a difficult place to come but I thought the players were outstanding at controlling the game and minimising their threats.

    "We obviously got challenged in the second half when they scored but our response to that was excellent and we fully deserved the victory."

    On his sides lack of goals at the interval, he adds: "Their keeper's pulled off some great saves but it’s difficult - when the other team park 10 men in their box - to find some space, so I thought we did well. I thought we controlled the game well.

    "I don't think we were frustrated at all, we minimised their threat, they scored from a corner. Our play was really good, it was a matter of time for the goals to come and thankfully they came."

    On goal-scoring debutant Moritz Jenz, he added: "His overall performance was really good, he's fitting in well and training really well. II's great for him to get his goal. He's very dominant in the air so hopefully it's the first of many."

  8. McInnes encouraged by 'decent' Killie display

    FT: Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock

    Kilmarnock manager Derek McInnes told BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound: "First port of call when you come to Rangers is to try and frustrate.

    "I thought we were okay in the first half. I know Tom Lawrence hit the bar. Apart from that, I don't remember Sam Walker making too many saves.

    "We make a tackle and play it right into Colak's path, which is disappointing. The goal that they get to give them impetus came from our own mistake.

    "There's got to be a realism here. A couple of months ago, we're trying to get this team out of the Championship, Rangers are competing in a Europa League final. There is a gulf there.

    "We had some good moments in the game but, unfortunately for us, not enough. You'd have to say Rangers deserve to win. I thought we were decent for long spells and I'm delighted with the players' efforts."

  9. 'No panic for pointless Ross County'

    FT: Ross County 1-3 Celtic

    James McFadden

    Former Scotland forward on BBC Scotland

    Quote Message: Malky Mackay is an experienced manager and he has got his team organised. He wants to use his wide men to create and he'll be happy with the performance. I think Ross County will do really well this season
  10. 'Great spirit in a new team' - Davidson

    FT: Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson on BBC Radio Scotland: "Again, we concede from a set-play which we did last week. First-half we played really well, we looked to get out and play, and we scored a really good goal.

    "Second-half we started sloppily, and the game ebbed and flowed. We defended our box well up until the last minutes and I thought it was going to be one of those days.

    "There are only one or two people from last year’s team, it’s a new team, a new build, I saw a great spirit and togetherness there. I’m delighted Stevie has come on and got us the three points.

    "We've signed players with ability, great experience in this league. There are a lot of positives there."

  11. 'Cheers to Saints boss'

    FT: Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone

    Allan Preston

    Ex-St Johnstone defender on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: It was mayhem when Stevie May poked in the late winner. The St Johnstone players were going mad, you could see how much it meant to them. Callum Davidson deserves a glass of wine tonight because he's not had many good Saturdays of late.
  12. Morelos on the bench again on Tuesday?

    FT: Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock

    The return of Alfredo Morelos was a welcome sight for Rangers, who must try and overturn a 2-0 deficit against Union SG at Ibrox on Tuesday.

    Is he ready to start that Champions League qualifier after five months on the sidelines?

    "It's a difficult one," says Sportsound pundit Rory Loy. "Colak scored his goal, that will help his confidence, and I would go with him. You don't want to risk Morelos.

    "If it's not going well on the night, Morelos can come off the bench again.

    "I would be tempted to bring in Scott Arfield, because you always know what you're getting from him."

    Agree with Rory? Let's see those thumbs...

  13. Debut to remember for Jenz

    FT: Ross County 1-3 Celtic

    Michael Stewart

    Former Hearts midfielder on BBC Scotland

    Quote Message: Moritz Jenz has come in and got a very important goal and his performance improved as the game went on. He looks more comfortable with the ball at his feet than Carl Starfelt, so it will be interesting to see what happens there

  14. 'Celtic kept going right until the end'

    FT: Ross County 1-3 Celtic

    Michael Stewart

    Former Hearts midfielder on BBC Scotland

    Quote Message: Credit to Ross County, they made a real fist of it, but the intensity was there for Celtic and they kept going right until the end

  18. FULL-TIME Aberdeen 4-1 St Mirren

    Jim Goodwin recorded his biggest league win as Aberdeen manager against his former club.

    They were helped by Declan Gallagher's early red card which gave them a man and goal advantage - as he conceded a penalty in the process of getting sent off.

    Bojan Miovski tucked away the spot-kick, and scored a poacher's goal for the second before Leighton Clarkson capped his debut with a thunderous effort from the edge of the area.

    Jonah Ayunga gave St Mirren some hope from the penalty spot, but Dons sub Luis Lopes killed that off when he dinked over Trevor Carson to score Aberdeen's fourth.

  19. FULL-TIME Ross County 1-3 Celtic

    Celtic were made to work hard for the points but got over the line with late goals from Moritz Jenz and Liel Abada.

    Kyogo broke the deadlock very early in the second half, with Alex Iacovitti heading in an equaliser for County, who remain pointless.

  20. FULL-TIME Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock

    Rangers make it two wins from two as Alfredo Morelos marks his return from long-term injury with a second-half goal.

    Antonio Colak fired in his first goal for the club on 51 minutes.

    Kilmarnock were well organised in defence but never really threatened to do anything at the other end of the park.
