Ross County appoint Adams after Morecambe exit

Ross County have appointed Derek Adams as their manager for a third time.

He left Morecambe on Monday morning after his release clause was met, despite the SkyBet League Two side hoping to keep the 48-year-old at the club, and hours later moved to the Highlands.

Adams told Sky Sports following his appointment: "I think success for this football club is to get into the top six and in my first time here, we were able to do that.

"We finished fifth in the SPL and It's the highest finish it's ever had in its time.

"So can we over time enable us to try and get to being a regular top six team? It's very difficult - we understand that with the amount of big teams in this league, and also try to eventually, if possible, get to European football."
