St. Petersburg, May 26 (IANS): New Russian Premier League champions Zenit St. Petersburg returned to their roots on the iconic Vasilievsky Island with a joint celebration of the league crown and the 90th anniversary of the club.

A multimedia event for players and fans on Monday evening featuring music and fireworks on the banks of the Neva river marked the jubilee crown at the famous 'Arrow' on Vasilievsky Island after which Zenit was originally named, reports Xinhua.

Several landmarks and buildings here were also bathed in the club's blue and white colours in honour of manager Andre Villas-Boas and his team's successful 2014-15 Premier League campaign.

The Premier League title is the fifth in the club's history and was completed with two full rounds of competition remaining after Zenit saw off challenges from Krasnodar and the perennial legion of Moscow rivals including CSKA, Spartak and Lokomotiv.
