Brittain has agreed a pre-contract to join St Johnstone in the summer, but has recently had a change of heart about the move.

He was stretchered off during County's 2-0 defeat at Motherwell on Sunday and is awaiting the results of a scan on a potentially serious knee injury.

However, St Johnstone will not use the injury as a means to get out of the deal and chairman Steve Brown is planning talks with Brittain.

"We have acted in an honourable fashion all the way down the line and that certainly won't change," said Brown.

"I spoke with County's chairman Roy MacGregor at the last SPL meeting and I agreed to sit down with Richie.

"But until I speak to the player I can't comment on why he may have had a change of heart. I wanted all that to be left until the final game was out of the way. That was fine by Roy.

"Right now we don't know the extent of the injury Richie suffered but as far as we are concerned nothing changes. We certainly wouldn't use an injury as a get-out."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
