Rangers 0-0 Hearts

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst came into this match knowing that nothing but a win would be good enough for his side, after falling seven points behind Celtic with a 2-1 loss to St Johnstone on Sunday.

John Lundstram saw an early effort go over the top but there was nothing between the two sides at the break.

Motherwell 0-1 Celtic

Ange Postecoglou was looking for his Celtic side to maintain their lead at the top of the Cinch Premiership as his side travelled to struggling Motherwell.

The visitors wasted no time in flexing their attacking muscle as Kyogo put Celtic 1-0 ahead. Matt O’riley done well to drive into the box before finding the Japanese forward who found the net.

Dundee United 3-0 Kilmarnock

It may only be the 9th of November, but this tie already had the feel of a ‘relegation-6-pointer’ about it. Dundee United started the night three points adrift of their visitors at the bottom of the table, whilst Kilmarnock were looking to keep pace with Ross County after their impressive 2-0 win away to Hibs.

It was the division’s bottom side who took the lead after eleven minutes. Kieran Freeman latched on to a long ball before calmly dispatching past Zach Hemming, for his first league goal at Tannadice.

Dundee United then doubled their advantage just after the 20-minute mark through Jamie McGrath. The midfielder followed up after Glenn Middleton’s initial shot was parried away, as the home side continued their explosive start.

Eight minutes later and the home side took a three-goal lead in exquisite fashion. The influential Glenn Middleton curled in a free kick from the edge of the box as Kilmarnock crumbled.

Testament to the scale of the capitulation from his side, Kilmarnock manager Derek McInnes made a triple first half change just after the half hour mark.

St Mirren 1-1 St Johnstone

St Johnstone pulled off a famous win against Rangers on Sunday and were looking to make it 4 wins in a row. St Mirren meanwhile had only taken 7 points from the last 18, after a positive start to the season.

St Johnstone took the lead just after the half hour mark after they were awarded a penalty via VAR. Veteran Grahm Carey stepped up and calmly gave the visitors a lead.

St Mirren levelled the scores four minutes before half time, when Greg Kiltie produced an excellent rifled finish.
