Rangers kept their top spot in the Scottish Premier League with victory at Dundee United while Celtic moved into second place after seeing off Motherwell.

Rangers claimed a 1-0 victory over 10-man Dundee United to retain their spot at the top of the table after Kyle Lafferty grabbed a second-half goal following Johnny Russell's straight red card in the 30th minute.

Celtic decisively leapfrogged Motherwell into second place thanks to a 4-0 victory over Stuart McCall's side at Parkhead, with James Forrest scoring either side of strikes from Joe Ledley and Ki Sung-Yueng.

Gregory Tade opened the scoring for Inverness against Hearts but the hosts failed to hold on for three points as Stephen Elliott found the equaliser late on to draw 1-1.

Kilmarnock edged out Dunfermline Athletic 3-2 in a tight encounter at Rugby Park thanks to Czech defender Zdenek Kroca's 62nd-minute winner.

St Mirren and St Johnstone were forced to share the spoils after neither side could break the deadlock in their goalless draw.
