Ross County manager Derek Adams has signed a new deal at the club, extending his stay with the Scottish Premier League outfit until 2016.
Adams, 37, led Ross County to promotion from the Scottish First Division last season, and more success has followed in the 2012-13 campaign.
A 3-2 comeback win over champions Celtic was the highlight of a terrific season that saw them finish fifth in the SPL.
And Ross County moved quickly to secure the services of Adams, who is in his second spell at the club, having briefly left to take up an assistant manager post at Hibernian.
“I am delighted to extend my stay at Ross County Football Club,” Adams told the club’s official website.
“We are one of the few clubs in Scotland with access to quality training facilities right here at the stadium and, having started my tenure in the Second Division (in 2007), we have been able to build not only a team and a squad but also a culture at the football club.
“Our successes have been built on this ethos and I think this shows what can be achieved by building a team spirit and putting the players at the heart of the football club.
“I am under no illusions as to the challenges that lie ahead in the coming seasons, but both I and my players relish them and I am delighted to be preparing for them with the added stability this extension to my contract gives us.”
Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor was delighted to have sealed Adams’ signature and believes the manager – who also enjoyed two playing stints at the club – is destined to succeed.
MacGregor added: “Derek’s CV is an amazing read. He’s brought this club not only the greatest period in its long history, but, I think probably greater success than many could ever have imagined for us.
“He is one of the most focused and driven people I have ever met and his vision of what this football club could and should achieve has been at the very centre of everything that Ross County have achieved during his tenure as manager.”
