Weekend preview

A look ahead to this weekend's games in the Ladbrokes Premiership, Championship and League 1...

The Ladbrokes Premiership resumes after the international break, with leaders Rangers away to Hearts on Sunday, live on BT Sport at 12.15pm. Steven Gerrard's men have a two-point advantage over Celtic, who host Ross County in one of five Saturday fixtures. It's third against fourth at Fir Park as Motherwell - who have won five of their last six in the Premiership - host Aberdeen. Kilmarnock and Livingston are tied on 11 points in mid-table as they prepare to meet at Rugby Park while Hamilton Accies are at home to Hibernian. There's a vital match in Paisley between St Mirren, who have scored fewest goals, and bottom club St Johnstone.

Dundee United manager Robbie Neilson this week signed a new deal, with the Tannadice club top of the Ladbrokes Championship. United suffered a surprise defeat at Alloa a fortnight ago and are looking to bounce back against Queen of the South at Palmerston. Ayr United, who are second on goal difference, again have Sandy Stewart in interim charge as they head for East End Park to play Dunfermline Athletic. Inverness CT are at home to Alloa Athletic, having beaten the Wasps in the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Cup last weekend. Arbroath will go above Morton if they beat David Hopkin's side at Gayfield while fourth-placed Dundee welcome bottom side Partick Thistle to the Energy Check Stadium at Firhill.

Raith Rovers have a two-point advantage at the top of Ladbrokes League 1 going into the second quarter of the campaign. John McGlynn's men head for Broadwood to face Clyde while closest challengers East Fife are at home to Forfar Athletic. Third-placed Falkirk, who have the best defensive record in the SPFL, are at home to Peterhead. Airdrieonians, in fourth, welcome Montrose to the Penny Cars Stadium while bottom club Stranraer host Dumbarton.

There are no games in Ladbrokes League 2 this weekend, with those clubs all involved in the second round of the Scottish Cup.
