Hearts of Oak were crowned league champions for the first time after a decade after they were held at home by Liberty Professionals on Sunday.

The game which was played at the Accra Sports stadium was met with a raucous reception as fans of the Phobians filled the stadium to quarter capacity.

Hearts of Oak needed to at least match Kotoko’s results to be crowned league champions.

Samuel Boadu’s men didn’t play their usual flamboyant football but rather adopted a more efficient approach.

As a result, Liberty dominated proceedings in the early part of the game. However, Hearts created the better opportunities with Kwadwo Obeng Jnr coming close a couple of times.

On the stroke of half time, Salifu Ibrahim whipped an in-swinging which glanced off the head of Daniel Barnieh at the near post to give Hearts the lead.GPL: Hearts of Oak win their 29th League title after 12 years

The Phobians strolled through the second half knowing Kotoko were losing at Bechem.

Liberty deservedly grabbed a late equaliser through Paul Kwame but that didn’t disrupt the party at full time as Hearts were crowned champions.
