Things we learned about the Premiership this weekend: Round 2

The Scottish Premiership second round was arguably as good as the first round with goals galore.

Celtic and Rangers have maintained their 100% starts to the season with both recording huge wins whilst Angelo Alessio’s side find themselves bottom without a single point to their name.

Here’s some things we learned from round two of the Scottish Premiership…

Hearts need to get their act together quick

For the second week in a row, Hearts have failed to impress as they were forced to settle for a goalless home draw against newly promoted Ross County.

Craig Levein’s side look far from a side who can compete for a European place and a long season could well await Jambos supporters unless several changes are made.

Ross County do deserve some credit though, as they once again put in another impressive performance. The Highland outfit could well have won by a good few goals had it not been for the goalposts, which they hit on several occasions.

We’ve already seen the assist of the season

Scott Allan may as well be given the award for the assist of the season now for his pass that led to Daryl Horgan’s goal in Hibs 6-1 defeat to Rangers.

The 27-year-old played a pass that can only be described as perfect which took both Rangers’ midfield and defence completely out the game and left Horgan one-on-one against Allan McGregor.

Even at this early stage of the season, Allan looks back to his best and is sure to be a real asset for the Easter Road club this season.

Up and down season awaits for Killie

An up and down season awaits for Alessio Angelo’s Kilmarnock side if their inconsistent performances at this early stage of the season is anything to go by.

Killie won their first competitve game of the season against Connah’s Quay Nomads but then lost to them in the second leg the following week.

Their first half performance against Rangers on the opening weekend of the Premiership season wasn’t great but they were much improved in the second half and had many thinking they weren’t so bad, ourselves at PureFitbaw included.

However, the Ayrshire club were absolutely rotten against Hamilton Accies at the weekend and lost 1-0.
