DUNDEE have been relegated from the Scottish Premiership after St Johnstone defeated Aberdeen at McDiarmid Park.

Callum Hendry’s first-half strike gave Saints a vital 1-0 win over the Dons in Perth and meant Dundee were relegated from the top division.

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 now face Arbroath or Inverness in the Premiership 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.
