There were 15 goals across Scotland’s top division in the final round of league fixtures before the international break.

Neil Lennon returned to Celtic Park for the first time since stepping down as the club’s manager in 2014 while Owen Coyle took charge of his first Ross County game following Jim McIntyre’s sacking earlier this week.

Here is the round-up of what happened in the Premiership’s 3pm fixtures.

Aberdeen 3-0 St Johnstone

An Adam Rooney hat trick maintained Aberdeen’s second spot in the Scottish Premiership as they beat St Johnstone 3-0.

A first-half double from the striker was then completed with a penalty nine minutes from full time, sealing the points for Derek McInnes’ side who are still to lose this season.

The result leaves St Johnstone fourth in the table.

Celtic 2-2 Hibs

Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon went head-to-head in the dugouts for the first time since August 2013.

Lennon’s Celtic side won 1-0 that afternoon in Dublin, in a pre-season friendly against Liverpool but it was honours even on this occasion.

Callum McGregor opened the scoring but two second half strikes from John McGinn put Hibs ahead on the day Lennon took to the away dressing room for the first time.

The Celtic midfielder struck again 10 minutes from the end though, to seal a share of the points and extend the champions’ unbeaten domestic run to 58 games.

Dundee 2-1 Hearts

Kerr Waddell was the star man for Dundee, scoring the winning goal over Hearts deep into stoppage time.

He hit his first of the afternoon a minute from half time before slotting home a dramatic second at the death and compounding Craig Levein to his first defeat since returning to the dugout.

Kyle Lafferty, just days after publicly admitting his gambling addiction, looked to have snatched a point when he scored on 71 minutes but it wasn’t enough for the capital side.

Kilmarnock 0-2 Ross County

Owen Coyle’s managerial debut started with a 2-0 win for Ross County over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

Craig Curran and Kenny van der Weg hit the first half strikes that proved to be enough to seal the points.

Killie boss Lee McCulloch is still without a win this season and his side remain bottom of the Scottish Premiership table.

Motherwell 3-0 Partick Thistle

Motherwell returned to league form with a comfortable 3-0 win over struggling Partick Thistle.

Peter Hartley, Craig Tanner and Elliott Frear netted the goals that sealed the points at Fir Park, keeping the home side in the top six.

Thistle remain second bottom of the table without a win this season.
