Craig Levein insists Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers’ refusal to blood young talent is more damaging to Scottish football than the length of the grass at Tynecastle could ever be after criticism of Hearts’ pitch.


Brendan Rodgers has dismissed Rangers chairman Dave King’s claim that Celtic’s dependence on Champions League football makes their financial model resemble a “pack of cards.”

Rangers star Ross McCrorie dedicates last night’s equalising goal against Aberdeen to his seriously ill gran. His goal sets up a blockbuster finish for second spot in the Premiership.


Stand-in Rangers manager Jimmy Nicholl criticised referee Steven McLean for awarding Aberdeen a penalty in last night’s match. The resulting goal almost wrecked Rangers’ bid for second place.
