His third spell at Ross County ended in infamy. 

Now, It appears Derek Adams is ready to move on with his life and get his career back on track after a difficult season in football.

The 48-year-old lasted just 79 days in total, managing 12 games with the Staggies before he parted ways with the Highland club in early February. 

He was drafted in to replace Malky Mackay on November 20 last year, with his previous work in Dingwall fondly remembered by chairman Roy MacGregor.

However, after failing to get results for County on the park, and a series of blatant digs at Scottish football, Adams was removed from his position, with Don Cowie entrusted to keep the Staggies in the Premiership.

Adams was scratching in his assessment of the top flight's standard after a 1-0 defeat to Dundee early on in his latest tenure, as he bizarrely claimed that his former side Morecambe was '100 times better' than the squad he inherited at The Global Energy Arena.

So, it seems unlikely that Adams' next move will be in Scotland, but while that much remains unknown, it seems the experienced coach is leaving no stone unturned as he seeks new employment in football management.

It's believed there's no new club in the immediate horizon for Adams, however, taking to LinkedIn, he has announced his plans to recruit three members of his new backroom team before his next job is lined up.
