Ian Crocker and Andy Walker's Scottish Premiership preview

Last Updated: 07/04/18 1:30pm
With just one full card of Premiership fixtures before the split, the league table has already been arranged into top and bottom halves.
Hamilton and Kilmarnock will face each other on Tuesday before the Scottish Cup semi-finals take place at Hampden next weekend.
During the week, there was some significant movement in the Premiership, even if it didn't affect the split. Ross County ended their long stay at the foot of the table with a 4-0 win over Partick Thistle, who they leapfrogged on Tuesday night.
Dundee managed to claim an unlikely point at Celtic Park on Wednesday, taking them five points clear of the bottom two sides.
At the other end of the Premiership, Rangers lost ground in the race for second without playing as Aberdeen and Hibernian both recorded victories over Motherwell and Hamilton respectively.
