The curtain comes down on domestic football for another season.

Yesterday's Scottish Cup will not perhaps be long remembered as a classic. Celtic too often seemed unable to click through the gears, that lent long periods of the game a scrappiness that seemed to offer Motherwell their best hope.

No game for Celtic and Kilmarnock or Dundee United and Motherwell this weekend. Hamilton will find out today if they are OK to host Hibs.

The SPL's Neil Doncaster is "slightly surprised" at the early call offs. The polis have decided though and there's not much clubs or league can do in the face of that.

Dumbarton's Third Division title this season means they become the first team in Scotland to have won league titles at all four professional league levels.
