Ross County are set to appoint Derek Adams as their manager for a third time.
He left Morecambe on Monday morning due to a release clause in his deal, despite the SkyBet League Two side hoping to keep the 48-year-old at the club.
Adams, who had managed Ross County from 2007 to 2010 and again from 2011 to 2014, replaces Malky Mackay who was sacked last week after a run of eight league games without a win.
The Dingwall side only avoided relegation last season under Mackay via the play-offs and are now 11th in the Scottish Premiership, just above bottom club Livingston on goal difference.
Confirming his exit from Morecambe, CEO Ben Sadler said Adams had “done an excellent job in challenging circumstances” with the club now ninth, just two points off the play-offs with games in hand.
Ross County’s next five fixtures
- Kilmarnock (h) – Scottish Premiership – Saturday, 3pm
- St Mirren (h) – Scottish Premiership – Nov 28, 7.45pm
- Livingston (a) – Scottish Premiership – Dec 2, 3pm
- Motherwell (h) – Scottish Premiership – Dec 5, 7.45pm
- St Mirren (a) – Scottish Premiership – Dec 9, 3pm
