The Scottish Premiership season continued with the latest round of games played during midweek.

Celtic are yet to play as runners up Aberdeen recorded a first win at Rangers since 1991. Hamilton Academical and Inverness Caledonian Thistle will battle it out for the automatic and play-offs relegation spots on the final day.

Here’s a round-up of the Scottish Premiership one game to take place.

To be played

Thursday 18th May 2017 – SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP
Partick Thistle v Celtic 19:45

It was only a fifth win at Fir Park for Motherwell this season, a 10th in total, but Tuesday’s 3-1 victory over Kilmarnock was enough to ensure Premiership football for Well next season. Killie, a place higher in eighth, should end the campaign ahead of their hosts.

Despite twice being pegged back Ross County’s added time winner saw them to a 3-2 victory over struggling Hamilton. Defeat for second-bottom Academical meant the battle to avoid automatic relegation to the Championship would go to the final day of the season if bottom-side Inverness Caledonian Thistle won on Wednesday, which they did.

Dundee, already safe from the threat of relegation, slipped to a first defeat under Neil McCann as basement side Inverness kept alive their hopes of avoiding an automatic drop. Caledonian Thistle’s 2-0 win took them to within a point of second-bottom Hamilton Academical – one of these two sides will definitely be relegated and the other in the relegation play-off game.

Having previously been beaten at Ibrox by Celtic this season, Rangers suffered a first home defeat against Aberdeen since 1991 – the second-placed Dons recording a 2-1 victory in the Gers’ final game of the season at Ibrox.

Fourth-placed St Johnstone’s third win in four saw the Saints move 12 points Hearts, fifth, after a 1-0 victory. The Jambos by contrast are now five without a win and have lost the last three.
