Eighth-placed St Johnstone officially nailed down their Premiership status for next season with their 1-1 draw against Partick Thistle.
But there was no masking the frustration of manager Tommy Wright, who was not convinced by referee Alan Muir’s decision to award the visitors a late penalty.
After Liam Craig was deemed to have tripped Ryan Edwards in the box, Conor Sammon cancelled out Joe Shaughnessy’s first half opener.
“The referee is adamant because he gave it very quickly,” said Wright.
“I’m not sure he has a great view of it and whether or not Liam gets enough of a contact I’m not sure.
“But all round it is a rank bad goal and something that has cost us three points because we were the better side.
“We were controlling the game, not under any real pressure and should have seen the game out.”
