Celtic and Hibs kicked off the return of the top-flight after the rescheduled winter break on Monday night. It was the prelude to a hectic evening of football with key results up and down the division.

Rangers were unable to reclaim a six point lead over their city rivals after dropping two points at Aberdeen with Lewis Ferguson netting a second-half penalty to earn the Dons a draw. It means the gap is four points and there are two league fixtures before the two teams meet at Parkhead at the start of next month.

Down at the bottom, St Johnstone lost more ground to teams in eighth, ninth and tenth with Livingston, St Mirren and Ross County all securing key victories. Saints, having lost to Hearts at Tynecastle Park are seven points from safety but just two points from the play-off spot which is currently occupied by Dundee who were hapless in their loss at Livi.

The win for Hearts sees the Gorgie side extend their cushion in third place to eight points with Motherwell, Hibs, Aberdeen and Dundee United all dropping points.

The Scottish Cup fourth round kicks off on Thursday but focus now switches briefly to the comings and goings in the transfer market with the January window open until the end of the month.
