Celtic 3-1 Hearts 

Josh Ginnelly gave Hearts an early after latching on to a cross from Andy Halliday. Hearts fans had to wait to celebrate however as the forward was initially ruled offside before VAR decided that the goal should stand.

The video assistant was to be involved again in the opening 45 minutes, as Daizen Maeda had the ball in the net but was also ruled offside. On closer inspection though the Japanese forward was said to have timed his run to perfection, as the league leaders drew level.

Celtic found themselves ahead for the first time of the night as the clock struck the hour mark. Some tenacious work from Jota got the ball to Aaron Mooy, who found Kyogo to fire the home side ahead.

Sead Haksabanovic provided the icing on the cake, unleashing a stunning curling effort into the top corner 6 minutes before the end to secure the points as Ange Postecoglou marked a century of games in the Celtic dugout.


Hibernian 1-4 Rangers 

It was an emotionally charged atmosphere in the capital, with kick off preceded by a rousing rendition of Hibs anthem ‘Sunshine on Leith’ in memory of the late Ron Gordon.

Lee Johnson’s side seemed to respond to the reception from the crowd, with the Easter Road side forcing a breakthrough via Connor Goldson own goal inside 12 minutes.

Only moments later though and Rangers had an opportunity for an equalizer. The visitors were awarded a penalty after consultation from VAR, which James Tavernier stepped up and duly dispatched to put his side back on level terms.

Rangers completed the turnaround 10 minutes before half time, this time courtesy of Antonio Colak. The Croatian forward said in the build up to the game that he wanted to be the main man at Ibrox and he did his chances no harm after turning in Fashion Sakala’s cross, giving Michael Beale’s men the advantage going into half time.

The game was effectively over as a contest before the hour mark, after a second of the night for Colak and a goal of his own for Sakala made it 4-1 with half an hour left.

The away side coasted through the remainder of the night to leave the capital with a comfortable three points.


Livingston 1-1 Dundee United 

Fresh from signing a contract extension hours earlier, Joel Noble produced an excellent run to the by-line before picking out Steven Bradley to give the Lions a first half lead.

Australian Aziz Behich netted a equalizer for Jim Goodwin’s side, slamming home a side footed volley from close range with 58 minutes played.

Neither side to could find the decisive breakthrough before the end as Jim Goodwin secured his first point as Dundee United manager.
