Dundee United star Adrian Sporle has labelled their title success as incredible after enjoying a cyber celebration.
The Tannadice club finally ended their four-year absence from the top flight after Dundee’s protracted SPFL vote meant they were officially crowned Championship winners.
Argentinian defender Sporle revealed last month he was unable to return home to South America because of travel restrictions.
The former Atletico Banfield star arrived in the summer and initially struggled with the language and change of environment in Scotland.
But he netted twice for United this year and has made 16 appearances for Robbie Neilson’s side, admitting he relished hearing the news of their triumph.
He said: “When we found out that we had won the league, the first thing we did was connect to the Zoom platform online with all the staff, president and players.
“It was unusual, but what an incredible moment for us.
“Even though our success wasn’t normal, it has given us enormous satisfaction and joy.
“This was the goal of the club and all the players. Four years ago, we were relegated and promotion has brought everyone great happiness.
“In Scotland, some clubs have economic problems and could not pay the contracts of players. If the league didn’t end now, the clubs would have had to continue to pay the players even though they had no income.
“There are many clubs who are in a worse position than Dundee United.
“In Scotland, I am alone just now and my family remains in Argentina.
“Obviously, I intend to return to the country, but I know that there are few possibilities due to the coronavirus situation.
“I understand the position and will wait until I am allowed to return.”
