Neil Lennon's side clinched their third successive title on Wednesday with a 5-1 victory over Partick Thistle.

County opened their season at Celtic Park with a 2-1 defeat when they welcomed the champions on to the pitch, and Adams insists his team will be happy to form a guard of honour again.

Adams said: "It's the second time in a season we'll have to do it for them and we'll do it on Saturday.

"They've had a terrific season. They've only lost one game this season and deserve to be champions.

"At times they're great to watch and we'll have to be at the top of our game on Saturday to stop them."

The champions have scored 16 goals in their last four Scottish Premiership outings, having only conceded once, and Adams believes that is down to Neil Lennon altering his side's tactics.

"They've been more attacking in recent weeks and they've scored a lot of goals," the County boss added.

"We've got to be aware of their attacking threat but we've got to cause them problems as well because there will come a time in the game when we get chances and we'll have to defend well and attack well."

The Staggies are only three points above the relegation play-off place but Adams is looking up the table.

"We want to go to Celtic and try and take something from the match because we know it'll put ourselves in a good position," Adams said.

"Trying to finish in seventh position is our aim now because we're four points behind Hibernian and we've got seven games to go."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
