Celtic 3-2 Livingston | McGregor, Christie & Ajeti Score as Celtic Go Top!
Celtic returned to the top of the Premiership at the start of the weekend with a 3-2 home win over Livingston. Goals from McGregor, Christie and Ajeti were enough for the champions to take all three points and the top spot in the league, with Livingston’s Julian Serrano scoring from range to keep the pressure on the current champions.
Hearts stunned Rangers for the second time this season to knock them out of the Scottish Cup in a fiery quarter-final at Tynecastle.
Rangers, who were without Alfredo Morelos after he was dropped due to a disciplinary issue, suffered defeat away to the Premiership’s bottom side after also doing so last month.
Oliver Bozanic drove Hearts ahead from a defensive mix-up, and they could have increased their lead in a strong showing that also saw Steven Naismith go close late on.
Hearts, who had a goal disallowed in the first half for an extraordinary Loic Damour handball, will find out their opponents in Sunday’s semi-final draw, and they could be paired with Edinburgh rivals Hibernian after they beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Friday.

(26 Jun 2019) – BBC Report: Scotland are out of the Women’s World Cup after a twice-taken added-time penalty gave Argentina a dramatic draw.
The Scots needed to win and Kim Little turned in their opener with Jen Beattie and Erin Cuthbert netting from corners.
It was 3-2 after Milagros Menendez scored and a Florencia Bonsegundo shot went in via the bar and Lee Alexander.
A VAR-awarded spot-kick taken by Bonsegundo was saved by Alexander but she was off her line and, agonisingly, the striker scored second time around.
With 16 minutes to play, Shelley Kerr’s Scots were on course to be one of the four best third-placed sides going into Thursday’s final fixtures in Groups E and F but Argentina’s recovery consigned the Scots to bottom place in Group D.
And Scotland captain Rachel Corsie was unhappy that referee Hyang-ok Ri allowed an Argentina free-kick to be taken while substitute Fiona Brown was coming on, with another substitute, Sophie Howard, ultimately penalised for her challenge on Aldana Cometti.
