Ross County return for Derek Adams

A third managerial stint with the Staggies for Adams

Derek Adams has returned to Ross County as the club’s new manager, the cinch Premiership side has announced.

It is a third spell in charge of the Staggies for the 48-year-old, who has left EFL side Morecambe to become Malky Mackay’s replacement.

Adams started his managerial career in Dingwall and led the club to the 2010 Scottish Cup final where they were defeated by Dundee United.

After a stint as assistant manager at Hibernian, he returned to lead County to promotion to Scotland’s top flight in 2011/12 before leaving the club in August 2014.

Since then he has managed Plymouth Argyle, Bradford City and two spells at Morecambe, including promotion to EFL League One with The Shrimps.

County sit in 11th place in the cinch Premiership with 10 points from their opening 12 games and Adams’ first game in charge is at home to Kilmarnock on Saturday.
