The Ladbrokes Premiership post-split games begin this weekend - here's a look at some of the numbers from the first phase of the season.

13 Celtic have a 13-point lead over both Rangers and Aberdeen as the season enters the final five fixture rounds, meaning they need just three more points to retain the title. Brendan Rodgers’ men travel to Easter Road to play Hibernian on Saturday, live on BT Sport at 12.30pm.

11 Kilmarnock are the Premiership’s form team – Steve Clarke’s side are unbeaten in their last 11 league matches and have won six in a row.

16 Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd is the leading scorer in the Ladbrokes Premiership, with 16 league goals. Boyd is two clear of Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos, whose Ibrox team-mate Josh Windass is two further back on 12 goals. Alex Schalk (11 for Ross County) and Kyle Lafferty (10 for Hearts) have also reached double figures.

67 Rangers have scored most Premiership goals so far. Their tally of 67 is three more than leaders Celtic. At the other end of the scale, bottom club Partick Thistle have netted only 26 times, five fewer than Dundee, who are the second-lowest scorers.

0 Celtic are the only Premiership team unbeaten at home this season - their two defeats have come away to Hearts and Kilmarnock.

2 Four clubs have lost just twice away from home in the top flight in 2017/18 - Celtic, Rangers, Hibernian and Kilmarnock.

1 Bottom club Partick Thistle have the poorest away record – the Jags have managed only one victory away from The Energy Check Stadium at Firhill; a 3-1 success at St Johnstone in January.

13 Hearts are the division's draw specialists, with 13 in their 33 matches to date. Hibernian (11) and Kilmarnock (10) have also reached double figures in terms of draws.
