It's tough at the top but it is even tougher at the bottom.

Dunfermline finally recorded a home SPL win and so the spotlight turned to Hibernian who lost 1-0 to St Mirren.

Meanwhile the Scottish Premier League will vote on a range of new rules designed to ensure financial fair play by its member clubs.

The proposals will be considered at a meeting of all 12 SPL member clubs and could lead to a raft of new rules being introduced at the end of this season.

The FA have caused a stir by announcing their intention to speak to West Brom boss Roy Hodgson about the England manager's job.

Elsewhere the man everyone was talking about after yesterday's Glasgow derby plus why Carles Puyol and Len Goodman will never be friends.
