David Wotherspoon fires in Hibernian's winner

David Wotherspoon clinched both a 1-0 win over Dundee and seventh place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League for Hibernian to ensure they go into the William Hill Scottish Cup final on the back of three consecutive victories.

The substitute guided home a powerful header in the 79th minute to complete a decent day's work for Hibs, who avoided any obvious injuries eight days before their Hampden encounter with Celtic.

Late goals from Paul McGowan and Conor Newton secured St Mirren just their third away win of the season as they rounded off their campaign with a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

In the Buddies' three previous attempts to overturn Kilmarnock this term, the best they had managed was two draws, but they finally overcame Kenny Shiels' side with McGowan's spot-kick success 15 minutes from time ahead of a late Newton effort.

John McGinn had put Danny Lennon's side ahead with his first senior goal after 20 minutes but Kris Boyd levelled soon after for the hosts.

Killie's unbeaten record against the men from Paisley was ruined, however, with McGowan and Newton's late intervention.

Elsewhere, Aberdeen and Hearts defied the weather to serve up an entertaining match despite ending their seasons with a 1-1 draw.

The home side had the better of the game but fell behind to Ryan Stevenson's header, before Jamie Hamill's own-goal ensured a share of the points.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
