Vital View - Premiership, 18th-19th March 2017

The Scottish Premiership season continued with the latest round of games played over the weekend.

Celtic couldn't clinch the title due to an Aberdeen win but now need just the one to secure this. The Dons remain clear of Rangers despite Caixinha making a winning start against Hamilton - who are now bottom.

Here's a round up of the Scottish Premiership action from the other games.


Saturday 18th March 2017 - SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP
Aberdeen 2-0 Heart of Midlothian 12:15
Inverness Caledonian Thistle 1-1 Ross County 15:00
Kilmarnock 1-1 Partick Thistle 15:00
Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone 15:00
Rangers 4-0 Hamilton Academical 15:00

Sunday 19th March 2017 - SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP
Dundee 1-2 Celtic 12:30

Aberdeen prevented Celtic from sealing the title on Sunday with a 2-0 win over Hearts. The Dons - with a sixth win in seven - are well placed to finish as runners up though as they hold an eight point lead over Rangers.

Inverness were denied a crucial victory against Ross County. However, despite the late equaliser Caley's 1-1 draw was enough to take them off the bottom of the league on goal difference.

An equaliser three minutes from time was enough for Kilmarnock to claim a 1-1 draw with Partick. Had Thistle held onto the lead they would have moved clear in the battle to finish sixth above Killie.

Relegation threatened Motherwell suffered a sixth defeat in seven when St Johnstone went away from Fir Park with a 2-1 win that took them up to fourth.

Pedro Caixinha got off to a winning start as Rangers boss with a 4-0 victory over struggling Hamilton, who dropped to the bottom of the Premiership as a result.

A 2-1 win at Dundee took Celtic to within a victory of securing a sixth successive Premiership title with the 25 point advantage over Aberdeen also restored.
