AS well as Rangers’ match with St Johnstone on Saturday, there were five other Scottish Premiership games over the weekend. 

Here’s a roundup of how they all went…

Saturday

Aberdeen 4-1 Hibernian

Aberdeen thrashed Hibernian to take second place in the Scottish Premiership. Gary Mackay-Steven grabbed a hat-trick in the rout after Graeme Shinnie had opened the scoring on 11 minutes. Anthony Stokes pulled one back in the final minute of normal time.

Dundee 3-0 Partick Thistle

Dundee are up to 10th in the Scottish Premiership table after a comprehensive defeat of Partick Thistle – with the Jags now four points adrift at the bottom of the table. A pair of penalties from Sofien Moussa either side of a Mark O’Hara strike sealed the win for Neil McCann’s team.

Hamilton 3-2 Ross County

Hamilton saw off Ross County in a dramatic game at the Superseal Stadium. Dougie Imrie had Hamilton ahead from the penalty spot on the half hour mark before it all kicked-off in the last 17 minutes.

Craig Curran equalised before Georgios Sarris nodded home to put Accies back in front two minutes later. Kenny van der Weg then leveled again before Michael Gardyne was sent off and a Liam Lindsay own-goal won the game for Accies. There was still time for further drama in injury time, with Hamilton’s Giannis Skondras sent off following a mass brawl.

Kilmarnock 1-0 Motherwell

Kilmarnock’s excellent recent run continued as they defeated Motherwell at Rugby Park. Scott Boyd grabbed the only goal of the game in the first half, with Well passing up a number of opportunities to level the match as it went on.

Sunday

Hearts 4-0 Celtic

Hearts dismantled Celtic yesterday to end the Parkhead club’s long unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership. 16 year-old Harry Cochrane opened the scoring before Kyle Lafferty made it 2-0 just before the break.

Manuel Milinkovic completed the rout in the second half with a further strike and a penalty.
