Aberdeen lifted themselves up to seventh with a win over Livingston as Dundee pushed into top-six contention while pouring more misery on St Johnstone who are now just three points off the foot of the table after Ross County’s 0 – 0 draw at St Mirren.
At Easter Road a late Kemar Roofe penalty gave Rangers all three points over Hibs to increase their lead over rivals Celtic to seven points ahead of Hearts travelling to Parkhead on Thursday night looking for their first win at the venue in a league game since 2007.
With games coming thick and fast in December the shape of the league will likely change dramtically over the coming weeks.

3. Rangers could rejected £10m for star
Ex-Rangers star Alex Rae reckons his former club may not be tempted to sell Nathan Patterson even if they receive a bid of £10million. The 20-year-old is wanted by Everton who had offers rejected in the summer. He said: “The thing is, if they've knocked back £8m or £9m, if they [Everton] come back with £10m, is that really going to change their [Rangers'] mind? I don't think it will." (Superscoreboard)

4. Hibs put pressure on SPFL
Hibs are “putting increased pressure” on the SPFL over their ticket allocation for the Premier Sports Cup final with Celtic. The Easter Road side were given 17,500 which they have sold out. The club wanted a 50-50 split. A statement read: "Knowing that we would sell out our full ticket allocation, we have constantly been engaged with the SPFL to gain more tickets. We think it’s of paramount importance that we receive a greater allocation for our supporters, and for sporting integrity.” (Various)
