Pádraig Harrington is four shots behind joint-leaders Matthew Fitzpatrick and Thomas Detry after the third round of the Scottish Open.

Australia's Lucas Herbert, who won the Irish Open last week, was two shots off the pace following an eagle, birdie, birdie finish to his 64, but Lee Westwood fell four strokes back after two double bogeys in the space of three holes.
Rahm shared the halfway lead with Detry and Jack Senior, but three-putted the first and third to fall four shots off the pace before recovering superbly with five birdies in the space of eight holes from the sixth.
