Matchweek 12 is almost firmly in the books of the 21/22 Scottish Premiership season and fans up and down the country will have been left with a range of emotions after seeing the results that were produced.

Indeed, with it having been Halloween weekend, there will have been some feeling that Celtic were cursed when they played Livingston at Celtic Park on Saturday. Many who use will have expected the Bhoys to have put together a win and they had the perfect opportunity to do so in the dying moments of the game.

With FIFA video game-style stats to have been produced in the fixture, such as Celtic’s 16 shots to Livingston’s two and the host’s 881 passes and 86% total possession, the Hoops had the chance to score from the penalty spot but Giorgios Giakoumakis could not convert from 12 yards and compounded the miserable day.

Rangers certainly did not make things better for the Old Firm rivals, either, as they managed to head to Motherwell and thump them 6-1 at Fir Park. The victory saw the Gers have a total of 30 shots on goal (12 on target) with 50% of them finding the back of the net.

Fashion Sakala was the star of the show as he netted himself a hattrick for the Light Blues, whilst James Tavernier, Glen Kamara and Kemar Roofe also netted for the Ibrox outfit. Motherwell would have felt that they had a chance of obtaining something from the game early on after Bevis Mugabi netted inside 15 minutes but that only seemed to make Rangers see red. Speaking of seeing red, Stephen O’Donnell was sent off for the hosts when the score was 1-3.

Heart of Midlothian were beaten by Aberdeen 2-1 at Pittodrie as their hopes of overtaking Celtic into second vanished, whilst Dundee United could not capitalise either as they were beaten 1-0 by St. Johnstone.

Dundee were victors in the other Scottish Premiership game of Matchday 12 over the weekend, as they managed to record a 0-1 victory against St. Mirren and move four points clear of bottom-placed Ross County.

However, the club rock bottom of the division will have the opportunity to close the gap to one point once again when they take on Hibernian at the Global Energy Stadium on Wednesday night.

Given how Hibs have been playing recently and the fact that they are on a four-game losing streak, it could be the perfect opportunity for Ross County to add to the six points that they have currently accumulated.
