Ross County manager ditches the Stags to be Hibs No.2


Ross County have announced that manager Derek Adams has left the Highland outfit to take up the Assistant Manager’s role at Hibernian.

Adams has been with the Dingwall side for three years, and his greatest success has to be leading the Stags to the Scottish Cup Final last season, losing 2-0 to Dundee United.

Ross County are currently in the bottom half of Division One, with Adams in the middle of an 18 match touch-line ban.

County chairman Roy MacGregor said, “I would like to thank Derek for all his hard work and leadership during his spell as Ross County manager. He ensured a place of honour in the club’s history by taking us to the Scottish Cup final last season and his tenure has also seen success in the Scottish Football League, including promotion to the First Division in 2008. I am sure every Ross County supporter will join me in wishing Derek every success in the future. As a board, our priority now is to identify the right candidate to help lead this ambitious club to the next level.”

The Stag’s assistant manager Craig Brewster will take charge of first team affairs, while the board look for a replacement.
