Adams proud of Ross County for seeing off relegation

Ross County boss Derek Adams was thrilled with his players after they managed to stave of relegation on Tuesday night.

The Staggies defeated Hibernian 1-0 courtesy of Richard Brittain's second-half penalty at the Global Energy Stadium which has them clear of a second-bottom finish and avoiding a potential relegation play-off.

Adams said: "Getting to the Premiership, staying in it, finishing fifth and finishing in whatever position we finish now is a great achievement.

"It is testament to the players and the staff I have. It is just a magnificent achievement for such a club as us.

"I thought Hibernian started the better side and then we came into the game in the second half. We needed a goal - I thought we could have scored more goals because we had the chances. Hibernian were always going to come at us.

"But it's over a season, we've won 10 games we've drawn seven and we've taken 26 points since January, we are the form team in the bottom six since that time.

"I wouldn't want to be going into the final day needing to win, I'm glad we've been able to do it tonight. That final day feeling is not going to be good for somebody on Saturday."
