Ross County captain Marcus Fraser will leave Dingwall after turning down the offer of a new contract.

The defender will depart the club after a five-and-a-half-year period in the Highlands, which started in 2015.

Fraser, 25, made more than 190 appearances during a spell in which he lifted the League Cup, Challenge Cup and Championship title.

Managers Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson said: “Marcus has been a tremendous servant to this club, and I am sure will always be fondly remembered by the Ross County family.

“Personally, we can’t thank Marcus enough for his commitment, dedication and professionalism during his time with us and the club, he has always given 100% for this club.

“Having played a big part in some of the clubs most successful moments in recent times it is important that we take this time to applaud a player who has dedicated a lot to our club.

“We wish Marcus and his young family the very best going forward.”

Last month it was revealed veteran defender Richard Foster would be one of 14 players released by Ross County.

Sean Kelly, Lewis Spence and Declan McManus were also confirmed as among those exiting the club in a club statement towards the end of May.
