1710: I'm going to sign off now. Thank you for your company and all of your contributions. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
1705: Well, that was quite an afternoon. Falkirk, Hearts and Hamilton all enjoyed good wins in the SPL but story of the day was Ross County's stunning Scottish Cup semi-final victory over Celtic. A hearty congratulations to the Staggies. There will be a few good parties up in Dingwall tonight once the entire population makes it back from Glasgow. You can see highlights of that game on BBC One Scotland at 2215 BST.
From bringthemonjpn On My Sport:
"If I said Happy Bithrday to Colin Moffat's mum, I bet he wouldnae post it" Awwww... We can't have one of our regulars feeling neglected.
1658: The post-split fixtures will be released later today. Business in the top half looks over, with Rangers running away with the title and Dundee United clear in the race for third. Hibs, Motherwell and Hearts will battle it out for fourth. It's very tight at the bottom, with just one point covering Kilmarnock, St Mirren and Falkirk.
1653: Full-time: Falkirk 2-1 St Mirren The Bairns and Buddies are now level on points at the foot of the table after a Pedro Moutinho free-kick and an own goal from former Falkirk forward Michael Higdon.
1652: Full-time: Hamilton 4-1 Hibernian Simon Mensing and Joel Thomas each bag a brace as Hibs are swept aside in Lanarkshire.
Late drama in Falkirk as Andy Dorman applies a close range finish. Can St Mirren snatch a vital point?
1651: GOAL Falkirk 2-1 St Mirren (Dorman)
1648: Full-time: Hearts 1-0 Kilmarnock The Jambos will be playing in the top half of the league after the split thanks to Suso Santana's fine strike.
1645: Kilmarnock defender Simon Ford, playing up front for the final minutes at Tynecastle, sends a powerful header narrowly wide.
1641: A bad day for Hibs gets a tiny bit worse as Abdesselam Benjelloun sees his weak penalty saved by the legs of Tomas Cerny. The Moroccan hit it straight down the middle. The Easter Road side have only scored three of the seven spot kicks given to them this season...
1640: PENALTY TO HIBERNIAN
Accies are really flying now and Joel Thomas grabs his second of the day with a fine one-on-one finish.
1639: GOAL Hamilton 4-1 Hibernian (Thomas)
1637: Hearts' David Obua curls in a beautiful cross for Suso Santana, whose shot is saved bravely by Cammy Bell. At New Douglas Park, Hibs sub Abdesselam Benjelloun misses a sitter after the ball breaks to him six yards from goal.
1635: What on earth has happened to Hibs? They were flying earlier in the season but are now facing a run of just two wins from their last 13 games.
1631: Hibs keeper Graham Stack is being kept busy by a rampant Hamilton and pulls off a Gordon Banks-type save from a Flavio Paixo header to keep the scoreline at 3-1.
1630: Champion Jockey Tony McCoy finally wins the Grand National, storming home on Don't Push It. John Beattie, our rugby expert, claims the office sweep. BBC Radio Scotland summariser Steve Cowan also seems very pleased...
Accies sub Joel Thomas, who lost the fight to take penalty number two, lets fly from 25 yards to send a shot flashing past Hibs keeper Graham Stack. A stunner!
1626: GOAL Hamilton 3-1 Hibernian (Thomas)
The Bairns are well on top and double their lead when Darren Barr's header from a Pedro Moutinho delivery strikes the back of former Falkirk forward Michael Higdon and rolls into the net.
1624: GOAL Falkirk 2-0 St Mirren (Higdon og)
1621: Hamilton spurn a great chance for goal number three as Alex Neil plays in James Wesolowski but Hibs keeper Graham Stack rushes out to make an excellent save.
After a shoving match with team-mate Joel Thomas, Simon Mensing blasts his second spot-kick into the top corner, following a trip on Dougie Imrie by Ian Murray.
1619: GOAL Hamilton 2-1 Hiberian (Mensing)
1618: PENALTY TO HAMILTON
1615: "Whereas last week's free-kick was a world beater, that was more a panel beater," BBC Radio Scotland pundit Des McKeown describing an effort from St Mirren's Graham Carey.
1613: Jamie MacDonald makes a superb save from Manuel Pascali's downward header, which bounced right in front of the Hearts goal line before it was kept out by an acrobatic dive by the Jambos keeper.
1612: "Hibs' slow build-up is like watching paint dry at times." BBC Radio Scotland summariser Steve Cowan marks his card as a blood and snotters man...
1610: Kilmarnock's Allan Russell is booked for a late challenge on Lee Wallace. My colleague Liam McLeod, at Tynecastle, described it like this: "He was so late, he was almost into Sunday there."
1607: I'm not so sure The Real Saint is going to get that birthday present, given Killie's woeful scoring record away from home. They've only found the net four times on the road on league duty this season. If Hearts get at least a draw, their place in the top six will be secure and the SPL will release the post-split fixtures this evening.
1605: The games have restarted at New Douglas Park and the Falkirk Stadium.
1602: We're off again at Tynecastle but no sign of the teams at the other grounds yet...
1555: Falkirk manager Steven Pressley was on the pitch celebrating when Pedro Moutinho hit the net. That could be a huge goal in the battle to avoid relegation. If the bottom-placed Bairns can hold on for the win, they will go level on points with the visitors.
1552: BBC Radio Scotland pundit Derek Ferguson says he hopes his wife isn't listening before informing us that the talent in the main stand at New Douglas Park is of a high standard. Well, this gives Mrs Ferguson a second chance to reach for the rolling pin when he gets home...
1550: Half time scores: Hamilton 1-1 Hibernian Falkirk 1-0 St Mirren Hearts 1-0 Kilmarnock
The home fans go wild as Pedro Moutinho curls in a sweet free-kick from the edge of the penalty area. St Mirren captain John Potter is going nuts protesting since he thinks the Portuguese forward dived to win the set-piece.
1547: GOAL Falkirk 1-0 St Mirren (Moutinho)
1545: The Grand National is off in half an hour. Have you got a punt on? I drew Flintoff in the office sweep. With his dodgy knees, I'm not sure the England all-rounder will get over those fences.
1542: Kilmarnock's Chris Maguire blows the chance to level at Tynecastle when he hits an eight-yard volley into the turf and straight into Jamie MacDonald's arms.
1540: "I think even the Hibs fans are stunned at that goal." BBC Radio Scotland summariser Steve Cowan suggests that the equaliser at New Douglas Park arrived against the run of play.
1538: Hearts midfielder Ruben Palazuelos makes a good run down the left, having been set up nicely by David Templeton, and sets up Christian Nade, who slices the ball wide... again.
That's a seventh goal of the season for Colin Nish, who meets Darren McCormack's deflected cross to head home at the back post.
1535: GOAL Hamilton 1-1 Hibernian (Nish)
Hearts winger Suso Santana breaks the deadlock at Tynecastle. Eggert Jonsson's shot is blocked but the ball ricochets to the Spaniard who slams it past Cammy Bell from 15 yards. The home side were down to 10 men at the time, Andrew Driver pulling up with what looks like a nasty injury. That boy hasn't had much luck this season...
1531: GOAL Hearts 1-0 Kilmarnock (Santana)
1529: Falkirk forward Pedro Moutinho pulls a drive just wide of St Mirren's far post in what has been a nervous affair.
From The Celtic Dodger On My Sport:
"I had a bad feeling when Mowbray was appointed, but never imagined it would come to this. I was never ashamed to be a Celtic fan during the dark years, but today I feel embarrassed to wear the green and white hoops. I just hope some of those players feel even an ounce of the embarrassment that us fans do."
1523: Just time to tell you that First Division leaders Inverness are trailing 1-0 at Queen of the South, while Forfar have come roaring back to spoil the Livingston party and are now leading 3-1 at Almondvale.
1521: Hearts striker Christian Nade slices a shot wide with the goal gaping.
Accies score the first SPL goal of the day, with Simon Mensing tucking away a spot-kick after a handball from Liam Miller. After scoring with his first attempt, he was asked to take it again, with Hamilton players encroaching into the box. The midfielder keeps his cool and sends it low past Graham Stack.
1518: GOAL Hamilton 1-0 Hibernian (Mensing)
1517: PENALTY TO HAMILTON
1514: Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov is making a rare appearance at Tynecastle but he's not had much to cheer in a dull opening period. Killie are not posing much threat, which is no surprise given they have only scored four league goals on their travels all season.
1510: Accies keeper Tomas Cerny makes a fine save to keep out a shot from Anthony Stokes, who was set up by a neat pass from John Rankin.
1509: St Mirren's David Barron has two pops at the Falkirk goal. His first effort is blocked by Ryan Flynn and he skies his attempt to side foot the rebound home.
1508: James McArthur sets up Mickael Antoine-Curier for a close-range chance but the Hamilton striker makes it easy for Hibs keeper Graham Stack with a weak effort.
1507: Falkirk midfielder Scott Arfield curls a free-kick just wide of the St Mirren post as the relegation battle makes a fiery start.
1504: Livingston have scored an early goal and our man Jim Spence missed it since he was munching into a macaroni pie! Raffaele De Vita was the man on target.
1500: We're off in the SPL. These games have a lot to live up to after the amazing upset at Hampden
1458: Text to 80295. "Don't think Neil Lennon could have done any more. The team were absolute rubbish. Lazy and poor passing. They went out on the park and thought all they had to do was turn up. I am just sick at heart." Celtic fan June in Inverness. She adds: "How hard is it going to be for me?! Oh, dear - maybe move south for a bit.
1450: A brief dip into the Scottish Football League - Livingston can seal Third Division title with a draw at home to nearest challengers Forfar.
1444: Remember, highlights of the semi-final can be seen on BBC One Scotland at 2215 BST. We also have a splendid online offering of great Scottish Cup moments for you to enjoy. There are some cracking goals and famous old ties to enjoy. County's win today must be a contender in the upsets category.
From bazeeky On My Sport:
"I never thought I would be apathetic towards the team I love but I'm sure I'm not the only Celtic fan who is just happy that this season is over. And now that it is, let's get the manager in place NOW, rather than have him working with a blank canvas at the beginning of the new season."
1438: A sporting text to 80295 from Dunks in Ayr: "Congratulations to County from a dejected Celtic fan, but (Peter) Lawwell should hang his head in shame, he prefers to sell jerseys in China, Japan and Korea than put quality on the park, shocking."
1435: "I can't get angry. I am beyond angry. I have just told the players that they have gone out of every competition this season with a whimper. You can tell them things, but you can't give them hunger and desire and this side is sadly lacking in that," Celtic caretaker manager Neil Lennon on BBC Radio Scotland.
1432: We have three SPL games coming up at 1500 BST. Hearts need to avoid defeat at home to Kilmarnock to be sure of a top-six finish, while bottom club Falkirk can go level with St Mirren if they win the battle of the bottom dogs. Hamilton host Hibs.
From superskippy1888 On My Sport:
"Ross County showed more heart and desire to win than we did and in my view that makes them bigger guys than those jokers that don't ever deserve to play for Celtic again."
Text to 80295 from Kevin in Wick: "Fear the Deer!! Congratulations to County, striking a blow for the Highlands."
1424: "We were told not to come, that Celtic had already won the cup. That kind of thing riles you. You have to show the utmost respect to everyone in semi-finals and we have played Celtic off the park today," a happy Ross County manager Derek Adams tells BBC Radio Scotland.
From itwasneme On My Sport:
"This team can not play football. Thomson was permanently thumping the ball up front, instead of trying to keep posession first. Samaras thinks he's the only player on the park and Fortune is just not good enough!"
1420: Raith Rovers play Dundee United tomorrow for the right to face Ross County. Can the Fifers spring another surprise? There has never been a Scottish Cup final without a top flight side in it.
From ahcannymind On My Sport:
"DAD ... YOU OWE ME MONEY!!! AND I'M PUTTING THIS NOTICE UP WHERE EVERYBODY CAN SEE IT.... Thought I was crazy, right? Ross County 2-0 on a friendly bet .... PAY UP DAD! PAY UP!!!! YEEEEEEE-HAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!"
1412: "It's a day I'll remember for the rest of my life. To come to Hampden and beat one of the Old Firm 2-0, it's the stuff dreams are made of," says a remarkably composed Steven Craig, scorer of County's first goal.
1405: Full-time: Celtic 0-2 Ross County That has to rank as one of the biggest shocks in the history of the Scottish Cup. So much so that my computer crashed right on the full-time whistle! The First Division side were worthy winners thanks to goals from Steven Craig and Martin Scott.
1404: We're in injury time now and County are knocking the ball around to cries of 'ole' from their delighted fans.
1401: "It's an incredible goal. The County fans go mad. The Celtic fans head for the exits and with it might go Neil Lennon's chances of the manager's job," says BBC Radio Scotland pundit John Robertson.
Ross County are in dreamland, as Arthur Montford might say. Andrew Barrowman charges into the penalty box and delivers a great ball across goal, with Martin Scott on hand to volley home from close range.
1359: GOAL Celtic 0-2 Ross County (Scott)
1357: A Steven Craig strike is charged down at the edge of the penalty area as County continue to probe with composure. Celtic respond with Robbie Keane heading narrowly wide from an Aiden McGeady cross.
1354: Tremendous defending from Gary Miller to deny Georgios Samaras! McGeady's low cross reaches the Greek at the back post and the defender lunges in to get the slightest nick on the ball to send it crashing against the post.
From shalalalatheterror On My Sport:
"10ish mins left of pure agony for the Staggies. As a season ticket holder at both Ross County and Dundee United we COULD be heading towards a magical day in May."
1351: A good passing move from County culminates with a thumping 20-yard shot from Richard Brittain but it's too close to Zaluska and the Celtic keeper beats the ball away.
1349: Ross County midfielder Martin Scott does a lovely drag-back in the middle of the park before drawing a foul. How's that for confidence?
1346: A simple pass rolls under Aiden McGeady's foot and out for a County shy. That rather sums up the kind of day Celtic are having...
1343: Ross County break but Andrew Barrowman is too slow to get his shot away, allowing Josh Thompson to make up the ground and block.
1341: County are sitting deeper and deeper as Celtic spring to life in search of an equaliser. A low cross has McGovern scrambling but his team-mates bail the keeper out with a frantic clearance.
1338: That was Fortune's last contribution. Pat McCourt comes on as his replacement.
1337: Celtic forward Marc-Antoine Fortune scoops a close range shot wide as the ball drops to his feet in a crowded penalty box.
1334: Celtic have around half an hour to avoid one of the worst results in the club's history. Can County hold on for a famous win?
1328: County spurn a couple of chances to double their lead as Martin Scott mis-controls a driven cross in front of goal when a header might have been a better idea. Soon after, Michael Gardyne sends a long-range effort wide, with Zaluska way out of his goals.
What a fantastic goal from Steven Craig! The County man starts near the halfway line and bursts through the Celtic defence, lifting the ball over Josh Thompson before blasting a fine shot beyond Lukasz Zaluska from the edge of the penalty area.
1326: GOAL Celtic 0-1 Ross County (Craig)
1323: County keeper Michael McGovern gets down smartly to tip away a header from Fortune but the linesman's flag was waving for offside against the Celtic forward - and a couple of his team-mates.
1321: The ball falls to an unmarked Steven Craig in the penalty box but the County man balloons his angled volley high, wide and not very handsomely into the crowd.
1319: The Highlanders continue with their crisp passing but captain Richard Brittain floats a cross into no man's land from a promising position. That was the story of their first half...
1316: No changes made by either team at the break as Ross County get the second half underway.
1312: It's hard to imagine Celtic can be as ineffective after the interval. Neil Lennon will be going bananas in the dressing room about that lethargic first 45 minutes. County have been knocking the ball around well but lack sharpness in the final third.
1307: To keep you entertained during the break we have a splendid online offering of great Scottish Cup moments for you to enjoy. There are some cracking goals and famous ties to enjoy. Come back for the second half, mind...
1301: Half-time Celtic 0-0 Ross County It's not been much of a game but Derek Adams will be happy with the way his side have equipped themselves. County have looked assured in possession, while Celtic have been disjointed and offered very little threat.
1258: Celtic make a change, with Crosas coming on for Landry N'Guemo. The Cameroon international looks stunned to be leaving the action so early.
1255: Celtic midfielder Marc Crosas is going through a thorough warm-up as Robbie Keane scampers clear of the County defence for the first time but the Highlanders scramble the ball away to safety in their own penalty box.
1252: We've got about ten minutes left in the first half and it's the First Division side who continue to look lively without testing Celtic keeper Lukasz Zaluska.
1248: "If I was Neil Lennon, I would hook Samaras and Fortune. It's a Scottish Cup semi-final and they look like they are out for a Saturday afternoon stroll! They just don't look up for it," BBC Radio Scotland pundit John Robertson, a former County manager.
1243: Georgios Samaras bolts down the left and his floated cross is wellied clear before a drilled delivery from Marc-Antoine Fortune causes more consternation in County's defensive ranks.
1239: Neil Lennon takes a stroll to the edge of the pitch to pass on a few instructions. The interim boss looks the picture of calm, which is a far cry from his days snarling and snapping in the Celtic midfield. He must be concerned by the sluggish start made by his team.
1236: Richard Brittain makes another good block to deny Marc-Antoine Fortune after a lightening Celtic break, involving Robbie Keane, who has not seen much of the ball so far.
1233: Zaluska has to flap a deep cross from Scott Morrison over his own crossbar but the corner kick comes to nothing for the Highlanders.
1232: Celtic keeper Lukasz Zaluska does well to fist away an awkward free kick in a crowded penalty box as County continue to press at Hampden.
1230: "There is no rhythm and no shape in the Celtic midfield," says BBC Radio Scotland pundit Murdo MacLeod, who was a mean battler in his hey day at Celtic Park.
1228: County are enjoying an early advantage in midfield, outnumbering their opponents in the centre of the park and swarming forward whenever they can.
From blindedbyfear On My Sport:
"Ross County don't actually need to beat Celtic today. They are only playing against Robbie Keane: Celtic have been a one-man team since he joined."
1225: Celtic forward Marc-Antoine Fortune cuts in from the right flank and lets fly with a shot, which is blocked by County skipper Richard Brittain.
1222: County win the first corner of the day but Georgios Samaras heads away for Celtic, who have yet to get going.
1202: Highlights of today's semi-final can be seen on BBC One Scotland at 2215 BST and we have a splendid online offering of great Scottish Cup moments for you to enjoy. There are some cracking goals and famous ties to enjoy.
1158: First Division semi-finalists Ross County and Raith Rovers can take heart from recent surprise finals. Falkirk, Queen of the South, Dunfermline and Gretna have all made it to the season's grand finale of late. However, they all finished runners-up.
1154: The Scottish Cup represents Celtic's only chance of silverware in what has been a disappointing season. Interim boss Neil Lennon has won his first two games in charge and really has to be back at Hampden on 15 May to be in with a shout of staying on in the role permanently.
1150: County caused an upset by disposing of Hibs in a replay in the last round and have also taken care of Berwick Rangers, Inverurie Locos and Stirling Albion, scoring a mighty 18 goals in those three ties. Celtic have beaten Morton, Dunfermline and Kilmarnock - all away from home - to get here.
1148: "It is a beautiful day, a wonderful occasion. The fans have travelled down in their busloads and it's another great day for the people of the Highlands. Were under no illusions about the task, but Hibernian were big favourites in the last round and we have played Hamilton earlier in the season and they were big favourites too." Ross County manager Derek Adams tells BBC Radio Scotland.
1145: It's a glorious day in Glasgow, with the temperature soaring to 16C already. There could be a few sun-skelpt faces after the game at Hampden.
1143: The Staggies also name an unchanged team, with manager Derek Adams sticking with the same side that started Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Queen of the South.
1140: Convoys of buses left from Dingwall at dawn this morning to make the long journey to Glasgow for a ridiculously early 1215 BST kick off. The Highland town has a population of around 5,000 and the First Division club are bringing 7,000 fans to the national stadium. Who's been left behind to make sure the Vikings don't invade again?
1137: Celtic go with the same XI that beat Hibs 1-0 at Easter Road last Sunday. "I could have been clever and changed it, but the boys have done well for me and I went for continuity." Celtic interim manager Neil Lennon tells BBC Radio Scotland.
1135: Good day folks. On a bumper weekend of sport, Celtic and Ross County meet at Hampden for a place in the Scottish Cup final, while we have three Scottish Premier League games to follow; Falkirk v St Mirren, Hamilton v Hibernian and Hearts v Kilmarnock.
