The club had dedicated the match to the fans - with the number 12 jersey to be retired from next season in honour of the support - but the Light Blues faithful left without the win they craved.

As well as taking a point from this clash, third-placed Motherwell also claim the Champions League spot which has been denied administration-hit Rangers next term.

Jamie Masson and Dean Shiels exchanged goals in either half as Kilmarnock and Aberdeen drew 1-1 at Rugby Park.

Masson netted on the half-hour, applying the finishing touch to a cross from Josh Magennis, with the latter also hitting the post before the break. Shiels then equalised eight minutes into the second half, scoring with a diagonal finish following a pacy counter-attack and pass from William Gros.

Aberdeen piled on the pressure in the closing moments and forced home goalkeeper Cammy Bell into an important save from Ryan Jack, but the teams had to settle for a share of the points.

Richie Foran's header five minutes from time earned Inverness a 1-0 victory over St Mirren in Paisley.

The Inverness captain rose to head home Greg Tansey's free-kick to ensure the visitors left St Mirren Park with all three points.

Chances were limited throughout the match but Saints had gone closest during the first half - Ryan Esson producing wonderful stops from Jeroen Tesselaar and Steven Thompson.

St Mirren's final home match of the season also marked Hugh Murray's final appearance at St Mirren Park after 16 years' service.
