Ronnie O'Sullivan

Ronnie O’Sullivan beat Jimmy White 4-2 at the Scottish Open to reach the last 16 of the World Snooker ranking event.

Five-time world champion O’Sullivan will play Mark Allen later in Glasgow.

Allen overcame Li Hang 4-3 in his third-round match, while home favourite Stephen Maguire lost by the same margin to Mark Williams.

But fellow Scot John Higgins progressed after beating Mei Xi Wen 4-0, with Judd Trump also advancing without losing a frame as he overcame Noppon Saengkham.

Higgins will play Dominic Dale, while Trump faces Kyren Wilson.

Marco Fu, Barry Hawkins, Neil Robertson and Liang Wenbo were among the other winners
