Hibernian 1-0 Dundee

David Wotherspoon's goal clinched seventh place for Hibernian and ensured they go into the Scottish Cup final on the back of three consecutive victories after beating Dundee 1-0.

The substitute guided home a powerful header in the 79th minute to complete a decent day's work for Hibs, who avoided any obvious injuries eight days before their Hampden encounter with Celtic.

Aberdeen 1-1 Hearts

Aberdeen and Hearts defied the weather to serve up an entertaining match despite ending their campaigns with a 1-1 draw.

The home side had the better of the game but fell behind to Ryan Stevenson's header before Jamie Hamill's own goal ensured a share of the points.

The Dons had announced the futures of nine first-team players would lie away from Pittodrie after the summer but that was tempered with the news top-scorer Niall McGinn had extended his contract until 2016 as manager Derek McInnes looks to make the former Celtic man the focal point of a re-shaped side.

Kilmarnock 1-3 St Mirren

Late goals from Paul McGowan and Conor Newton secured St Mirren just their third away win of the season as they rounded off their Clydesdale Bank Premier League campaign with a 3-1 victory at Kilmarnock.

In the Buddies' three previous attempts to overturn Kilmarnock this term, the best they had managed was two draws, but they finally overcame Kenny Shiels' side with McGowan's spot-kick success 15 minutes from time ahead of a late Newton effort.

John McGinn had put Danny Lennon's side ahead with his first senior goal after 20 minutes but Kris Boyd levelled soon after for the hosts. Killie's unbeaten record against the men from Paisley was ruined, however, with McGowan and Newton's late intervention.
