Inverness kept up their excellent start to the season with a 2-0 home victory over Kilmarnock.

Killie proved to be stubborn opponents at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium but they were eventually worn down by the hosts with late goals from Aaron Doran and Greg Tansey sealing a fourth win of the season for Caley.

Second-half strikes from Nicky Low and Niall McGinn helped Aberdeen to a comfortable victory over Partick Thistle as they recorded their first home league win of the season.

Low struck the opener just moments after the interval and McGinn curled a fine effort into the far corner of the net after 66 minutes to secure the points.

Hamilton's fine start to the Scottish Premiership season continued as Ross County remain without a single point so far following a 4-0 defeat at New Douglas Park.

Their boss Derek Adams was sacked on Thursday due to such a poor run of results but it was the same old story for the Highlanders.

Goals from Martin Canning, Jason Scotland and a double from the penalty spot from Mickael Antoine-Curier secured the points for Accies on what was another day to forget for County, who ended the match with 10 men after Uros Celcer saw red midway through the second half.

Coach Steve Ferguson was tasked with taking charge of teams affairs until a replacement is appointed, with the likes of Danny Lennon and Terry Butcher quickly linked with the job.

However, Patrick Kluivert has now emerged as a surprise candidate, according to reports on Saturday.

St Johnstone nicked all three points when Brian Graham came off the bench to score the only goal on his debut after joining the club on loan from Dundee United.

The winner, which came four minutes from the final whistle, was a bit harsh on Motherwell who slumped to their fourth consecutive defeat despite looking the more likely to score in the second half.

It was three and easy for a rampant Dundee United as St Mirren's miserable start to the season continued with a 3-0 home defeat.

Second-half strikes from Chris Erskine, Radoslaw Fojut and substitute Blair Spittal condemned the men in black and white to their fourth straight Scottish Premiership loss, leaving them second-bottom in the standings.
