St Johnstone players react to historic double after impossible dream realised

Their manager ended up doing a belly slide across the dressing room floor and Celtic target Ali McCann will cost £20 million – St Johnstone players are getting used to this celebrating malarkey.

The Perth club secured a historic double on Saturday and their place as the second most successful Scottish club in the last 10 years after Celtic. After winning the League Cup in February, Shaun Rooney’s header sealed a 1-0 Scottish Cup final win over Hibs.

Callum Davidson’s first season as St Johnstone manager will go down as one of Scottish football’s best, the first club outside Celtic and Rangers since Aberdeen in 1990 to do the double. It’s an unbelievable success that doesn’t factor in they will play European football next season, having finished a brilliant fifth in the Scottish Premiership.

Players have taken to Twitter to celebrate their success. Davidson has dived across a room full of champagne, Stevie May is demanding £20 million for McCann after the midfielder was scouted by Celtic and Liam Gordon has been hailed as ‘the prince of Perth.’
