Falkirk celebrated being crowned cinch League One champions in style with a 7-1 thumping of Montrose.

Falkirk had sealed the title before they even kicked off as closest rivals Hamilton were held to a goalless draw by Queen of the South.

Falkirk then dazzled in the late kick-off, with Ross MacIver and Aidan Nesbitt both scoring twice as Ethan Ross and Alfredo Agyeman also got in on the act.

Alloa drew 1-1 with Annan as Bobby Wales struck first for the hosts before Tommy Muir equalised in the 40th minute.

Marc McNulty’s penalty gave Spartans a 1-0 home win over Forfar in a game where Stuart Morrison was shown a red card for the visitors, while goals from Alan Trouten and James Lyon helped East Fife to a 2-0 win against Elgin.
