Morning, brothers and sisters. It's getting right into the season proper now, and while Hibs' predictable bottle-job provided some course for mirth and relaxation, there's still serious question marks hanging over the team aheading into tomorrow's game. On Tuesday night, we'll know whether we've got a serious chance of silverware and a chance of a crack at them or whether we'll be solely focused on getting promoted and building for the future.

Taxi 'bursts into flames' at Glasgow airport

Something to look forward to the next time Derek Llambias jets in.
