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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
