Paul Heffernan bagged a brace on his first start of the season following an injury lay-off while Gary Harkins celebrated his return to the starting line-up with a superb finish.

All the goals came after the break but the hosts had been on top for much of the match and could have been clear by half-time.

Shiels said: "It was a good game of football and Ross County made a fantastic contribution. After the 0-0 draw with them earlier in the season I said we should both get points taken off us as it was boring game.

"But this time both teams contributed to a really good game of football.

"We showed a lot of creativity and created about 10 or 12 chances. The movement of the front two pleased me but the work rate throughout the team was great.

"We had a couple of efforts cleared off the line in the first half and at half-time I told the players that we were the more likely team to score and after we did in the second half we took command."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
