James Forrest celebrates his equaliser for Celtic

James Forrest celebrates his equaliser for Celtic

A review of Saturday's action in the Scottish Premiership.

James Forrest's wonderful strike gave Celtic a 1-1 Scottish Premiership draw against Hibernian - but manager Neil Lennon was left with more Champions League worries ahead of Ajax's visit on Tuesday night.

Striker Paul Heffernan gave Hibs the lead in the 17th minute when he raced through to knock the ball past Fraser Forster.

Forrest then replaced Kris Commons, who came off with a hamstring injury which must make him doubtful for Europe, and a moment of magic in the 75th minute by the Scotland winger deservedly levelled the scores at Easter Road.

Calvin Zola's close-range strike early in the second half was enough to see Aberdeen seal a 1-0 victory over Dundee United at Pittodrie.

The former Burton striker pounced on Niall McGinn's cross to turn home what would prove the winner in an entertaining game.

Goals from Kris Boyd and Jackson Irvine gave Kilmarnock boss Allan Johnston his first win since taking over at Rugby Park in the summer.

The 2-0 home win over Ross County eased the pressure on the former Queen of the South manager but there were yet more protests as the Killie fans continued to heap flak on chairman Michael Johnston.

Boyd prodded the Ayrshire men in front after 17 minutes before Irvine's second with 19 minutes left in the second period ended the club's 12-game run without victory.

An 89th-minute goal from Steven Thompson settled a thrilling contest as the St Mirren picked up their first win of the season at St Mirren Park.

The battle of the Saints had seen St Mirren go ahead on three occasions and miss a penalty before Thompson's late strike finally shook off St Johnstone's stubborn resistance and gave the hosts a 4-3 success.

Craig Moore scored a spectacular goal seconds into his Scottish Premiership debut to start Motherwell's comeback as Hearts slipped further behind at the foot of the table after a 2-1 loss.

The 19-year-old fired the ball into the top corner from 22 yards within 30 seconds of coming off the bench midway through the second half at Fir Park.

The strike cancelled out Ryan Stevenson's 62nd-minute breakaway opener and Shaun Hutchinson headed home with eight minutes left to secure Motherwell's fourth consecutive home victory.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
