Paul Hartley hits out at Morton after Dundee clinch promotion
The Dens Park chief was delighted for his players after winning the Championship title.
Paul Hartley hit out at Greenock Morton after they almost allowed Hamilton to pip his Dundee side to the Championship title.
Hartley's men beat Dumbarton 2-1 at home to clinch their place in Scotland's top flight next term as their nearest challengers Hamilton ran out 10-2 winners against Kenny Shiels' team.
That result at New Douglas Park would have seen the title travel to Lanarkshire if Dumbarton had managed to snatch a point at Dens Park.
Speaking to national newspapers, Hartley said: "When do you see a game finishing 10-2 on the last day? You don't even see that in amateur football.
"If you're a professional team you shouldn't lose 10-2 but we did the business.
"It wasn't until I came in after the game that I heard the result. It is a strange one because Morton beat us 1-0 and drew with Falkirk.
"But it is all about us and the boys dug in to get a result."
