Ross County have appointed Derek Adams as their new manager.
The 48-year-old leaves English League Two side Morecambe to return to Dingwall as Malky Mackay’s replacement.
It will be his fifth time at County and third time managing the club he made over 100 appearances for in two spells as a player.
He led the Highland side to the Scottish Cup final in 2010 and Premiership promotion in 2012 by winning the Championship.
Since leaving for England in 2014 he has managed Plymouth Argyle, Bradford City and Morecambe where he has been for the last year and a half.
Mackay was sacked earlier this month with County sitting second bottom of the Premiership and ahead of Livingston only on goal-difference.
Adams’ first game back will be a home game against Kilmarnock when the league returns on Saturday following the international break.
Ross County confirmed the appointment on Monday.
CEO Steven Ferguson said: “We are delighted to welcome Derek Adams back to Ross County Football Club.
“He returns following a successful period in England and has led over 700 games as a manager across his career.
“He knows the Highlands and our club well; we look forward to seeing him build on the solid foundations laid by Malky and his staff over the last two years and believe that Derek inherits a talented playing squad that are capable of being successful in the SPFL.”
