An entertaining weekend of football in the SPl this week.
Aberdeen held Rangers, in the early kick off game, to a 1-1 draw with Rangers having a late goal by DaMarcus Beasley ruled out for offside when he was clearly a yard on. Davie Weir opened the scoring for Rangers in a half they dominated, Derek Young equalised just before the break for The Dons.
Shaun Maloney had an impressive return to Celtic in their comfortable 3-0 victory over Falkirk. Glenn Loovens and Marc Crosas were given debuts as goals from Giorgios Samaras(2) and defender Steven McManus gave The Celts a good confidence boost ahead of next weeks Old Firm game against Rangers. 3 defeats on the bounce for Falkirk.
Hamilton's dream start to the season hit a snag as they were beaten by Kilmarnock 1-0. Manuel Pascali's was enough to win the game for Killie. Hamilton also had David Graham sent off with 10 minutes left.
A battling performance from 10-men St. Mirren ended in a 2-1 defeat to a Hearts team who deserved the win. Michael Stewart's penalty won the game for the Jambos after a man of the match performance. St Mirren should take heart from the game though and be confident of picking up a few points in the next few weeks.
Caley and Hibs battled out a 1-1 draw with Don Cowie and Colin Nish scoring. The score was what both teams deserved with a lot of good play from both of them. Djebi-Zadi was given his debut from the bench for Caley and looked comfortable.
John Sutton's return to the SPL with Motherwell started well with a goal against visitors Dundee United after 34 minutes which was cancelled out by Lee Wilkie 6 minutes later. Motherwell's problems up front from last week don't seem to have changed with the void Ross McCormick left is all to see. Chris Porter missed a penalty for motherwell who should be encouraged by their good play.
Next week sees the first old Firm of the season so I'll do a quick preview for you guys.
