Adams resigns as County boss

Ross County manager Derek Adams has resigned after just 79 days in charge.

Adams succeeded Malky Mackay in November last year, taking charge of the club for the third time, and took nine points from his 11 league games.

The 48-year-old described the standard of Scottish football as "shocking" after a 1-0 defeat to Dundee not long after taking charge - comments which were roundly criticised - and his tenure ended with a 5-0 loss against Motherwell on Tuesday.

"After much consideration in recent weeks, I have made the decision to resign from my position as manager," Adams said in a statement.

"Over my twelve games in charge, we moved six points clear of the team directly below and have been extremely close to gaining more victories and draws along the way.

"Ross County is close to my heart after twice playing here and managing for a third time. I would like to take the opportunity to thank chairman Roy MaGregor and Steven Ferguson and wish them well for the future."
