St Mirren have ended their Scotland Premiership in a dramatic way after beating United on penalties to stay safe from relegation. Both sides fought to remain equal on 1-1 score line to end their differences in penalties recording (agg 1-1, 2-0 pens).
After Celtic completed a thrilling and historic treble win over Hearts on Saturday’s Scottish Cup final, one thought they couldn’t have been more on the edge of our seats.
But St Mirren and Dundee United took all the way through two legs of their final before the Paisley side prevailed on penalty kicks.
The Buddies will be back in Premiership action for a second successive season.
Having edged out Dundee to avoid automatic relegation, they have now consigned United to a fourth consecutive season in what will be a highly competitive Championship again after the summer break.
