Stranraer's Aitken: Ross County win biggest of my short managerial career

Stranraer manager Stevie Aitken was on cloud nine after his League One side defeated Premier League outfit Ross County 3-2 in the second round of the Scottish League Cup on Tuesday night.

Second-half goals from Sean Winter, Chris Aitken and Martin Grehan gave the Blues a famous home victory over Derek Adam's Staggies and Aitken was absolutely thrilled with the result at the end of the contest.

"It's up there - it must be - to beat a Premiership team and a good established Premiership team, it must be up there," he said.

"I'm over the moon, I'm delighted, and I thought at half-time that my talk to you (the media) after the game would be something different.

"But we will concentrate on the players - I thought they were immense."
