Dundee United confirmed their return to the cinch Premiership at the first attempt after a goalless draw at Airdrie sealed the Championship title.

The celebrations had begun at the weekend as they were six points clear at the top with two matches to play but with a massively superior goal difference and Airdrie recognised this by welcoming the visitors with a guard of honour.

However, that was as far as their respect extended as they enjoyed the better of the first half, with Arron Lyall coming closest to breaking the deadlock just before half-time when his shot was brilliantly tipped over by goalkeeper Jack Walton.

After the break midfielder Lewis McGregor’s cross-cum-shot bounced just wide with Lyall, again, and Josh O’Connor testing Walton as the hosts continued to create the better chances but United were happy to settle for the point which confirmed their return to the top flight.
