Derek Adams: SPL Manager of the Month for February

The accolade is the second in a row for Adams, while the 37-year-old also claimed the award in August.

The Dingwall-based club began February with a 2-2 draw against Hearts before victories over Dundee, St Johnstone, Motherwell and Aberdeen took them up to third in the SPL table.

They have since slipped a place in the standings but remain in the hunt for a Europa League berth next season.

County chairman Roy MacGregor is hopeful that Adams will extend his stay in Dingwall.

"I'm delighted for him and it's his third manager of the month in his rookie season," said MacGregor. "He's an exceptional young manager.

"I'm 99% sure that he'll be here next season. He's got another year on his contract and has an extension on the table."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
