Hearts’ Scottish Premiership season continued with a draw against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday.

A difficult start to the league season, which saw Hearts start out with a defeat against Champions Celtic, then saw a Betfred Cup exit to St Johnstone. The Jambos drew nil-nil with Aberdeen this time.

Changes were made by Nielson from that side that crashed out of the League Cup but a breakthrough couldn’t be found with Watt, like he had on his debut against a former club Celtic, was guilty of a bad miss.

Watt could have one it late on, after Aberdeen’s Burns had headed against the crossbar, but couldn’t hit the target from 12-yards out.

Here’s a round up of the Scottish Premiership action from the other matches played.


Sat 13 Aug 2016 – Scottish Premiership
Dundee 1-2 Rangers 12:15
Aberdeen 0-0 Hearts 15:00
Celtic P – P Partick Thistle
Hamilton 1-2 Kilmarnock 15:00
Inverness CT 2-3 Ross County 15:00
Motherwell 1-2 St Johnstone 15:00

No Celtic this weekend, they had a weekend off playing in a friendly elsewhere, with this seeing Rangers take advantage with a two-one win at Dundee.

Kilmarnock, Ross County and St Johnstone all picked up wins with all three of them winning away at Hamilton, Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Motherwell respectively.

Aberdeen and Hearts played out a goalless draw in the other match at Pittodrie.
