Scottish Premiership Roundup

Another exciting round of fixtures over the weekend in Scotland. Heart of Midlothian extended their lead at the top of the table with a 2-1 win over Aberdeen at Tynecastle. A fiery game with over 40 bookings and three penalties. One penalty scored for each side whilst Joe Lewis saving a 2nd Hearts penalty. A worrying result possibly for Aberdeen fans with a big semi-final on the cards next Sunday against Rangers especially after already being left red-faced regarding tickets sales. On the other hand, even this early into the season, do you see Hearts as genuine title contenders?

Celtic and Hibernian fought out a goal fest with the final result ending 4-2 in the host's favour at Parkhead. Multi-million-pound signing Odsonne Edouard scoring a brace. If Hibs keeper Bogdan hadn’t been in great form pulling off some brilliant saves the score might have been even more in Celtics favour. Meanwhile, Hibs manager Neil Lennon claimed they were playing against 12 men and blasted the ref for some dubious decisions.

Just look at Livingston, back-to-back promotions and now holding their own in with the big boys. An emphatic 4-0 victory. Dundee will be finding their feet with new manager Jim Mcintyre but scoring four goals is impressive stuff, all from set pieces. Also, amazingly all outfield players at Livingston have scored a goal this season.

It was a bleak ending for Motherwell at home again with St Johnstone snatching a dramatic last-minute winner through Jason Kerr at Fir Park. Ending a four-match winless run for Tommy Wrights men. This leaves Motherwell in a rut of bad form not finding a victory in six matches now.

Kilmarnock supporters were sent away from St Mirren's Park joyous after they continued their terrific form of 2018 with a 2-1 victory over St Mirren who had in recent weeks been given a bit of a lift under new manager Oran Kearney. The result has now put Killie 3rd in the table, all set for another top-six finish for Steve Clarke's men. If the wheels don’t come off could they be challenging for a European spot?

Finally, the Superseal Stadium played host to the final game of the weekend as three late Rangers goals saw off a resolute Hamilton side in a 4-1 victory. Hamilton who had previously made the game all square on 80 minutes through a Steven Boyd wondergoal didn’t exactly play poorly. Big refereeing decisions that included two penalties for Rangers contributed to the scoreline. Giving Rangers some much-needed confidence going into Sundays Betfred Cup Semi Final with Aberdeen.
