QPR defender Osman Kakay is amongst the several people who have sent messages to Partick Thistle after the Jags achieved promotion to the Scottish Championship at the first time of asking.

The Firhill club were relegated to League One under controversial circumstances in the 2019/20 campaign as football was put on shutdown due the Covid-19 pandemic. But former players such as QPR star Kakay – who was on loan at Thistle last season – a manager and SPFL clubs have sent their congratulations after a 5-0 win over Falkirk sealed the title.

Ian McCall’s team will now head into the Scottish Championship as league winners as they right the wrongs of last season. Only a few months ago it looked as if Thistle were out of the running as Falkirk stormed ahead, but great form after the resumption of lower league football has inspired a title win.

Several are thrilled for the Jags, who end their season on Tuesday night against Montrose. If they are defeated in this match and Falkirk lose to Airdrieonians, the Bairns will miss out on a promotion play-off spot.
