Dundee United secured fourth place in the Scottish Premiership – and invaded the field from their fans – after the dramatic late winner Nicky Clark against Ross County.
Blair Spittal’s loudmouth gave the County a lead, but the advantage didn’t last long and Clark scored from the spot a few minutes later.
The draw was all that United needed to jump over Motherwell, but Clark’s intervention in the 89th minute caused a stormy scene on the field and secured United the highest league position since 2014.
Fourth place means that the Tam Courtse team will secure another £ 500,000 and enter the Europa Conference League qualification in the third round.
