Not a big fan of Hampden as it is but glad to see the SFA have seen sense to remain there. Last nights attendance was proof that moving to Murrayfield would have been a waste of time, we struggle to fill Hampden never mind moving to an even bigger stadium. Now that the SFA are buying the ground they have said they'll look at redeveloping it, they she should never have kept it as an oval when they redeveloped it in the 90's.

Maybe we let him go too early? Naisy with his 8th of the season.:)

Much as I like him and at the time it didn't look great business replacing him with Niasse, he hasn't been great since he left although I think he's had a couple of injuries. Proving now that he's still a level above the Scottish Premiership though, looks like Norwich could use his goals as well.

Good start for Hearts, five wins from five. Although as sure as death and taxes someone always runs the Old Firm (Celtic at the moment) close then fall away as the season goes on.

Seems like yesterday they didn't even know if theyd be selling tickets for a game 2 weeks away, let alone naming ridiculous prices!

I know. It was my nephew who was telling me, he was going to buy the home top but it's 65! Says they're talking the piss out of the fans, there obviously a bit of optimisim around the club so they're just taking the piss out of the fans, there's only about 3000 general sale tickets available so they hiked the prices up. He's bought a ticket for the game this weekend, he didn't get a season ticket this year but his season ticket was 340 last year for 19 games, one of his mates got one in the main stand and it's 600 this season.

Although they way they've spent and added to the wage bill this year I still think there could be a sting in the tale for Rangers yet.

They'll probably blame the pitch.

Great job Steve Clarke's doing at Killie.

I think Rangers will it make a closer fought thing this season. Probably a bit of complacency at Celtic which Rogers will need to sort.

Hearts are the surprise and really should be six from six but Naismith missed a penalty yesterday.

It's a stupid decision to play them both on the same day although the kick offs are nearly 8 hours apart. I know what you mean about volume of people, although it will only be 50k Old Firm fans and if anything it'll be easier to police than if they were playing each other as they'll be there at different times.

Been inevitable for a while that although you could argue they were unlucky against Kilmarnock last week. 1-0 up in 10 minutes but first they concede an own goal then Killie get a dubious penalty which Jordan Jones was retrospectively banned for diving. Killie got a second penalty which Brophy should have taken but there was a 'Mirallas moment' and Greg Stewart took but it was saved, so I suppose they could have lost 3-1.

Strange time to sack him though, they've had the whole international break to do it, I'd guess they've been lining up a replacement first?

Impressive shoulder barge, almost Yakubu like. Even more impressive that it lead to the winning goal for Queen of the South. Decent goal too.

Gerrard's honeymoon well and truly over.

That should get Celtic their first trophy as you're pretty much guaranteed Aberdeen will roll over to Celtic as is usual this days.

Dress it up how they like, Rangers can't sustain losses like this.

Neil Lennon never learns. There's no place for throwing objects but he wonders, when goading the Hearts fans after they have late winner disallowed, why he gets gubbed in the face by a coin.

Steve Clarke doing well.

Thought he showed signs of being a good manager at West Brom.

He's doing a great job there, they need to stop giving teams a one goal lead though.

Had many a good day out following Kilmarnock and always have a soft spot for them.

He's taken a dive there!

He's a horrible cunt, managers need to act more professionally than that, I've no sympathy for him carrying on like that at any game, even less so a derby.
