Some hit from Robertson. Had 0-0 written all over it until then.

They've probably sent shockwaves to the bank manager as well. Needing a bigger clear out than Everton that lot.

Pathetic result. If this is post Steve Clark Killie then it's going to be a tough season.

A classy Rangers fan filmed asking Scott Brown "How his sister was" as he boarded the team coach after the Old Firm game on Sunday.

Apparently he's already been singled out and banned. His own fans are far from happy with him.

*for those that dont know, Brown's sister died after a battle with cancer.

Saw a clip of that earlier. I can't be doing with Brown but that was disgusting, I wouldn't have blamed if he'd lamped the cunt.

Fair play to Rangers and their fans for dealing with it swiftly.

Sad to hear Fernando Ricksen has passed away. Never a fan of him as a player but always thought it was heartbreaking to see him gradually get worse with MND. Horrible, horrible illness.

Livingston leading Celtic 2-0 which is fine , but what kind of a surface is that ?  Looks like a farmers field .

It's artificial, 4G I think?

Cracking result.

Apparently the figures are positive according to Dave King even though turnover was up 63% to £53m. They've played a risky game and it's failed by spending big by Scottish standards but didn't manage to clear the deadwood out the place so they've a huge wage bill at the moment although they do now have players worth a bit of money.

King and Douglas Park have now converted an eye watering £35m in soft loans into shares in the last 18 months alone, clearly that can't carry on forever. It's stop Celtic at all costs, though I'm not sure "all costs" includes putting the club down the pan again. Sooner rather than later they're going to have to get their house in order.

I see the master of the 4-6-0 formation Craig Levein has been sacked, poor manager and a twat of a man as well. It's no coincidence that Hearts great start to the season last season came mostly while Levein was in hospital and the wheels fell off pretty soon on his return.

Scottish players in cant be arsed to play meaningless games against Cyprus and Kazakhstan shock  ::)

They’ve all got ‘minor knocks’ which have forced them to withdraw, only to be back playing club football next week

Four withdrawals and Robertson and Fraser are the only two high profile players to withdraw with unspecified injuries, McTominay was carried off and probably out for a month with an ankle injury, Liam Cooper was subbed of with a small groin tear and Arsenal asked for Tierney not to be picked as he's still just getting back to fitness.

Jack Ross appointed new Hibs manager. Decent appointment for them and for him after Sunderland binned him.

We should beat Israel at home but Norway or Serbia will probably pump us away.

Good signs from Steve Clarke over the last couple of matches though so you never know.

I think in the long term he'll do well, we were still on a downward spiral when Clarke took over and that wasn't going to changed over just two or three games. Kris Boyd was right when he said after Belgium pumped us that he feared we hadn't hit rock bottom, hopefully Russia was rock bottom and now we can start building up again. We've not a bad squad all fit and we've players that are playing at a decent level on a regular basis now rather than in recent years when it's been the odd Old Firm player, Premier League squad/fringe players and Championship players.

It'll take time and maybe the Euros are just a bit too soon but if we get a half decent draw in the group for the World Cup qualifiers we should try and go in with a bit of belief and confidence.
