  1. Catch you later

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    That'll do us. Thanks for joining us tonight and throughout the season.

    St Johnstone fans, your side will be in the Premiership next campaign.

    What an end to the season. It's been a long one... but memorable as well.

    Just the small matter of Scotland trying to reach the World Cup to come next week...

  2. 'A bigger achievement than winning the cups' - Davidson

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson tells BBC Sportsound: "It's relief more than anything else. It is a fantastic achievement from the players and the supporters have been phenomenal for us.

    "We were in a really dark place in November-December and we have been fighting like mad to stay in this league so credit to everyone involved, the chairman, backroom staff, everyone.

    "This may sound stupid, but for me, this is a bigger achievement that winning the cups because mentally it is really difficult.

    "It's easy when you're winning games, but mentally tough when you are losing games, players getting injured and challenging situations.

    "We don't want to be fighting at the bottom, we want to be top six."

  3. Spot the difference...

  4. 'I'm proud but disappointed' - Dodds

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    Inverness boss Billy Dodds tells BBC Sportsound: "I'm proud and disappointed. Proud of the players for the season, disappointed the way it has turned out.

    "I'm not saying we dominated the first half but we had them where we wanted them and put the pressure on them. 4-0 was harsh on my boys.

    "When they got their chances, they took them. When we had our chances, we missed them.

    "It wasn't the fitness tonight, more naivety. But we will learn from that for next season. I wanted to make history and be the first team to be promoted over the six games, but we just fell short."

  5. 'Our class showed' - Rooney

    St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    St Johnstone defender Shaun Rooney tells BBC Sportsound: "From the first leg there was a bit of frustration that we lost two goals. Tonight our class showed.

    "It is a good finish, I will give myself credit. I used to be a striker so maybe more to come.

    "I was calm coming into this one, I said to some of the boys on the way up if we played the same as we did on Friday we should coast it.

    "We don't want to be a Championship club, this club should be in the Premiership and credit to the fans. They have been here all season and it is us who haven't always turned up."

  6. Broadfoot confirms he's leaving Inverness

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    Inverness defender Kirk Broadfoot tells BBC Sportsound: "It is obviously hard to take. I think you would say for 60 minutes of the first leg, St Johnstone were the better side.

    "But we got ourselves back into it. Tonight, I think for the first half, we were the better side.

    "We came out in the second half and goals change games unfortunately. No one has done it [been promoted after finishing third or fourth] - but we fancied ourselves. It's a tough ask for six games in 21 games.

    "My time at Inverness has come to an end, I will be moving on and if I do keep playing, hopefully it'll be more local."

  7. Post update

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    Fair play to the Inverness fans, they've stayed behind to give their team the reception they deserve.

    They've done themselves proud. They'll look to kick on next season now.

  8. 'Inverness gave St Johnstone a real scare'

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    Stuart Kettlewell

    Former Ross County manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: In large spells of this tie, Inverness gave St Johnstone a real scare and Billy Dodds, I don't think, will be asking too many questions of his players.
  9. 'Saints blew Inverness away'

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    Rory Loy

    Former Dundee & St Mirren forward on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Over the piece, there were two outstanding halves from St Johnstone that have won them the tie. But tonight, in the second half, they have blown Inverness away and they were clinical. They didn't give Inverness a sniff.
  10. 'I'm delighted for Callum'

    FT: St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    Sky Sports

    Ex-Scotland striker Kris Boyd: Callum [Davidson] is buzzing, but trust me - it's relief. You can see it means so much to him. I'm delighted for him.

  11. FULL-TIME St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    After the first 45 minutes tonight, it was hard to see this coming.

    But St Johnstone blew away Inverness in the second half with goals from Stevie May, Cammy MacPherson, Callum Hendry and Shaun Rooney.

    Scenes at McDiarmid Park. Callum Davidson is going wild.

  12. GOAL! St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT (6-2)

    Shaun Rooney

    Cool. As. You. Like. Again.

    St Johnstone break forward again and this time it's Shaun Rooney who is free.

    The defender finishes with almost an identical effort to Callum Hendry's.

    Lovely stuff.

  13. 'Beautiful'

    St Johnstone 3-0 Inverness CT (5-2)

    Stuart Kettlewell

    Former Ross County manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: What an unbelievable finish from Callum Hendry. He looks as if he is playing in the park with a group of his mates, not in a situation to keep his team in the Premiership. He jogs towards the goalkeeper, waits for Ridgers to go down and it is a beautiful little dink of a finish.
  14. GOAL! St Johnstone 3-0 Inverness CT (5-2)

    Callum Hendry

    Cool. As. You. Like.

    St Johnstone have acres of space to attack into as Inverness throw bodies forward.

    Melker Hallberg's pass finds Callum Hendry who races through and dinks a lovely finish over Mark Ridgers.

  15. Post update

    St Johnstone 2-0 Inverness CT (4-2)

    Bit of pressure from Caley Thistle but St Johnstone, who have been far more solid in the second half, get their bodies in the way.

  16. 'Saints doing the dark arts'

    St Johnstone 2-0 Inverness CT (4-2)

    Stuart Kettlewell

    Former Ross County manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: St Johnstone are just managing the game well, we call it the dark arts.
