The 29-year-old midfielder agreed a pre-contract agreement to join the Perth side in January, when Steve Lomas was the St Johnstone manager.

With Lomas' departure to join Championship side Millwall, Brittain has had a change of heart, and now wishes to remain in the Highlands, citing 'personal reasons' for his decision.

However, St Johnstone are remaining firm that they wish to keep their man, after a meeting between the two clubs ended in deadlock.

"I've spoken to Roy [McGregor, Ross County chairman] and Richie but nothing's changed. We have no intention of backing down," Saints chairman Steve Brown said.

"We have a new manager in Tommy Wright but that doesn't change Richie's situation. Tommy wants him here for next season and we have Europa League qualifiers in July.

"We offered Richie a two-year deal in January which he grabbed and we expect him to join the squad in pre-season on June 27."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
