County produced an impressive performance and ensured the points would be taken from Paisley with a Sproule double and a goal by his former Hibernian team-mate Sam Morrow after Richard Brittain's superb opener.

"Ivan was great, his pace and directness was something we required, he's also benefited Sam Marrow who played with him at Hibs," said Adams.

"I thought we controlled the game first-half and then it became a bit scrappy in the second-half as they came into it. However we have won 4-1 away from home."

Adams felt his decision to allow Brittain to retain the captain's armband was justified by the midfielder's display and his brilliant free-kick from 25 yards which broke the deadlock.

Brittain signed a pre-contract agreement with St Johnstone earlier in the week and will join the Perthshire club in the summer.

"Richard has been great for this football club and we will miss him when he goes, however he will miss Ross County more as it's a fantastic football club," added Adams.

"Richard knows that, he's been given a bit of stability at St Johnstone, but he won't get a better group of players than he has at Ross County."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
