The St Johnstone players get their hands on the First Division trophy

St Johnstone secured the Scottish First Division title after coming from behind to beat Morton and end their seven-year absence from Scotland's top flight.

Top scorer Steven Milne was the hero with a second-half double, scoring on the break and then clinching the title with an unstoppable volley.

Ryan McGuffie's 24th-minute penalty opener, given for a push in the box, had threatened to spoil the party.

But Martin Hardie forced home a Paul Sheerin corner five minutes later.
