Vital View - Premiership, 14th-16th April 2017

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

Champions Celtic were held by Ross County as Aberdeen secured a Europa League spot, something Rangers will almost certainly achieve too.

Inverness look set for relegation with Dundee now occupying the relegation play-off spot.

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


Friday 14th April 2017 - SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP
Kilmarnock 0-0 Heart of Midlothian 19:45

Saturday 15th April 2017 - SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP
Dundee 0-2 Hamilton Academical 15:00
Motherwell 4-2 Inverness Caledonian Thistle 15:00
Rangers 2-0 Partick Thistle 15:00
St Johnstone 1-2 Aberdeen 15:00

Sunday 16th April 2017 - SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP
Ross County 2-2 Celtic 12:30

Kilmarnock and Hearts played out a 0-0 draw on Good Friday, which didn't do much good to help the visitors' fading chances of securing a Europa League spot.

Defeat for Dundee saw them drop to second-bottom - into the relegation play-off place - as Hamilton leapfrogged their hosts moving up to ninth, with a two point advantage, after a 2-0 win - Academical are now seven clear of bottom side Inverness.

Motherwell let a two goal lead slip but still managed to see out a 4-2 victory over bottom side Inverness - leaving Caledonian Thistle seven points from safety with seven to play. Well's win moved them above Dundee, two points clear of the relegation play-off place.

Rangers warmed up for next weekend Scottish Cup semi-final with Celtic securing a 2-0 win over Partick - extending Pedro Caixinha's unbeaten start to life as Gers boss to five. The gap to Aberdeen, second, remains at nine points with five to play.

St Johnstone, fourth, suffered a probable terminal blow to their hopes of securing a Europa League place via the Premiership when beaten by Aberdeen. However, this victory for the second-placed Dons ensured European football next season and improved the likelihood this will come as them finishing as runners up to Celtic, ahead of Rangers.

Twice Ross County came from behind, including the 90th minute leveller from the penalty spot, to secure a 2-2 draw with champions Celtic - who dropped points for only a fourth time in the Premiership this season.
