  1. Mackay knows County 'have to be better'published at 17:42

    Speaking after his side's third successive Scottish Premiership defeat, leaving them bottom of the table with no points, Ross County manager Malky Mackay told BBC Scotland: “I think in the second half we came into it. We had really good pressure near the end.

    “It was a moment of real quality that won the game in the end, it was a really good goal in a pretty tight game.

    “Maybe because of the heat today it was played at quite a slow speed. There were times it looked like a pre-season game with both teams and the pace of it at points.

    “It’s three games in with two good performances and we have to be better than we were today, undoubtedly.

    “There were a couple of times today we got into positions and you’re thinking we should be pulling the trigger."

  2. St Mirren frustrate winless Countypublished at 17:26

    Despite Ross County's impressive performances so far this season, they were not near those levels.

    St Mirren managed to frustrate them and limit the effectiveness of their wide players throughout the half. On the opening day against Hearts Edwards was sensational, but the winger failed to follow that up on his second Scottish Premiership start.

    The home side appear to have more of an identity under Robinson now with a clearer tactical identity on the pitch, particularly when turning the ball over and attacking.

    Even though the goal was a stunner, Robinson will be hoping his strikers start chipping in with them too, as will Malky Mackay.

  3. Laidlaw eyeing points after two strikeoutspublished at 18:32 12 August

    Ross County goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw is desperate to put points on the board against St Mirren on Saturday.

    County ran Hearts and Celtic close and are away to a St Mirren side who have also started the Scottish Premiership with back-to-back defeats.

    Laidlaw said: "Performances have been good but we haven't picked up any points.

    "We have had two tough games, obviously Hearts finished third last year and Celtic won the league.

    "So we knew it was going to be a tough start for us, and it will be a tough game again on Saturday.

    "If we get a performance, great, but the most important thing is getting three points."

  4. Robinson wary of County performance levelpublished at 15:09 12 August

    St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson believes Saturday's opponents Ross County have performed well so far this season, despite not having a point yet in the Scottish Premiership.

    County have opened with defeats by Heart of Midlothian and Celtic, while St Mirren also have no points from their first two games against Motherwell and Aberdeen.

    "If you are not playing well it is a concern Sometimes performances come before results and I believe that has been the case," said Robinson. "I also think it has been the case for Ross County.

    "I watched both their games and they were really strong in both games. Ross County started poor last season and ended up in the top six.

    "There are lots of things to be positive about for us, but of course you want a result, you want to get off the mark. The confidence and belief is still here but obviously results help that."

  9. No cause for County concernpublished at 18:16 6 August

    Ross County have zero points from a possible six, but they still have more than enough potential to be a surprise package this season.

    An impressive attacking display on the opening weekend and a solid defensive performance this afternoon will give Malky Mackay more than enough encouragement as the season gets going.

  10. Mackay content despite lack of pointspublished at 18:05 6 August

    Ross County manager Malky Mackay reckons his side have plenty to look forward to, despite taking zero points from their opening two Scottish Premiership outings.

    He told BBC Scotland: "I was really pleased with the game plan and that the players stuck to it.

    "I don't really think Celtic broke us down too many times and I've said to them this is a brand new group testing themselves against a side in the Champions League.

    "We adapted to what Celtic threw at us, I thought we did okay.

    "With 15-20 minutes to go we got a lot of the ball on the break, on the transition. We were a bit wasteful with it and then it's five or six minutes to go and they get their second goal.

    "There's a lot to be looking at positively for us in the coming weeks."

  12. Ross County v Celtic - team newspublished at 19:26 5 August

    Ross County will be without William Akio for the visit of Celtic after having surgery on a knee injury.

    Celtic are without midfielders Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi. Defender Carl Starfelt has been in training and is available after missing out last weekend.

    Did you know? Celtic won all four matches against Ross County last season after the Dingwall side recorded only their second-ever victory over Saturday's visitors - by 1-0 at home in February 2021.

  14. Akio eyes return after 'surgery went well'published at 15:58 4 August

    William Akio will be hoping his luck has turned after the Ross County forward announced that "surgery went well" on a knee injury picked up during his debut for the Scottish Premiership club.

    The Kenya-born 24-year-old arrived in Dingwall in a blaze of ignominy after what some commentators billed as the worst miss in history.

    Akio's final appearance for Valour, in the Canadian Premier League against HFX Wanderers, was marked by an amazing clearance - at the wrong end - when he booted away Alessandro Riggi's goalbound effort in celebration thinking it had already crossed the line.

    Having then signed for County, the South Sudan international came on as a first-half substitute against East Fife, set up two goals in a 7-0 League Cup group-stage romp, only to then be forced off before the end with an injury.

    Now Akio has declared "I will be back stronger than ever" after undergoing surgery.

  16. Mackay hopes for 'settled squad' next yearpublished at 16:24 3 August

    BBC Scotland's Tyrone Smith

    Malky Mackay hopes to avoid a third summer of big change at Ross County.

    Mackay is in his second season in charge, having secured a top-six finish in last term's Scottish Premiership.

    They opened the new campaign with a 2-1 loss away to Heart of Midlothian and host Celtic on Saturday.

    "Last year, we had to bring in 12," he explained. "This year, we had to bring in 10. We've lost nine and we've brought in 10. The quality of the squad is better.

    "Next year, I really hope that, all being equal, we only need to bring in two or three and there is a settled nature to the squad going forward."

  18. Mackay buoyed by stellar County performancepublished at 18:38 30 July

    After losing 2-1 to Hearts despite an impressive display, Ross County manager Malky Mackay reckons his player's put in a good shift.

    He told Sportsound: “It was not the result we were looking for but the performance certainly was what we were looking for. First half we were terrific, really took the game to them.

    "We had wonderful chances and I was disappointed we didn’t come in two goals up at half time because I know what Hearts are like, they are clinical and don’t need many chances [to score].

    “That was the case and they came at us in the second half and we had to weather the storm. We got back into it again against a good team and overall I’m very proud. I said to them in there if you keep playing like that we’ll be okay.

    “There were some really good performances today from guys I know will cause a problem in this division."
