Dundee relegated from Scottish Premiership after St Johnstone win

Dundee have been relegated from the Scottish Premiership after St Johnstone beat Aberdeen on Wednesday night.

Callum Hendry’s first-half goal for St Johnstone earned the Saints a 1-0 win over Aberdeen – which means Dundee cannot catch them in the Scottish top-flight table.

Hendry drilled in a Glenn Middleton cutback for his eighth goal since returning from a loan spell with Kilmarnock in January to ensure the Saints will face Arbroath or Inverness in the play-off.

The win moves them an unassailable six points clear of Mark McGhee’s Dundee with only one game remaining, while Aberdeen stay 10th following a disappointing run of just two wins in 11 games since Jim Goodwin took over in February.

A club statement from Dundee read: “It has undoubtedly been a disappointing season for everyone connected with Dundee Football Club.

“We would like to thank each and every supporter for their backing throughout the campaign. Having gone through a full season with no fans in the stands last season it was fantastic to see you all back in your rightful place but unfortunately, we have fallen short on the park.

“As always the dedication of our fans has been incredible and we could not be more grateful for the support. Work is already well underway behind the scenes to ensure that the club is in the best possible position heading into the 2022/23 season.”
