Happy Houston hails European achievement

Happy Houston hails European achievement

Dundee United boss Peter Houston was delighted as his side booked their Europa League place next season with a 1-0 victory over champions Celtic at Tannadice.

Scott Robertson grabbed the all-important goal from a header midway through the first-half as the hosts took full advantage of rivals St Johnstone losing at Hearts.

"I'm delighted and proud of the players and backroom staff," Houston told BBC Scotland. "It's been tough, but great credit and great spirit this team has got. When we needed to, we've come in with a run and we deserve fourth place.

"I'm really proud of the guys. They can all awalk away with their heads held high," he continued. "They've got us into fourth place and a European slot, which is all you can ask of them. To finish hopefully in fourth position, is a huge achievement for Dundee United."
