Another week of Scottish football is underway as the fallout from the weekend’s action continues.
Rangers remain 16 points ahead of Celtic in the title race, albeit having played three games more, after their 1-0 win over Hibs in a match that wasn’t without a bit of controversy as the visitors wanted a penalty for a high-boot challenge by Ianis Hagi on Joe Newell.
Celtic were made to wait for the breakthrough against Hamilton Accies but eventually ran out 3-0 winners to keep up their strong recent form.
Killie lost their fifth consecutive game going down at home to Livingston, while Ross County made it two defeats from two under new manager John Hughes as they were defeated 2-0 by St Mirren in the Highlands.
Elsewhere, Aberdeen came from behind to defeat St Johnstone at Pittodrie, while Dundee United and Motherwell drew at Tannadice.
