Hull won 1-0 against Wednesday in the Championship playoff final at the Wembley Stadium in London.
Mohamed Diame’s superb strike in the 72nd minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.
This means that the Tigers have got promoted to the Premier League for the 2016-17 campaign, while Wednesday will remain in the Championship.
Former Burnley and Newcastle United midfielder Barton, who has joined Scottish Premiership-bound Rangers on a free transfer, was following the match, and he believes that Hull deserved to win against the Owls.
Gutted for Sheff Wed but Hull deserved that. They were better of both teams that played us last year at Burnley.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 28, 2016
