Ross County boss Derek Adams named manager of the month

Ross County manager Derek Adams has been named Clydesdale Bank Premier League manager of the month for August.

The Dingwall side, who are playing their first season in Scotland's top flight, were unbeaten during the opening month of the campaign.

They opened with 0-0 draws with Motherwell and Aberdeen before being denied victory by a late Celtic goal in a 1-1 draw at Victoria Park.

Their first win of the season came at Dundee on Saturday.

That 1-0 triumph, courtesy of Richard Brittain's penalty, extended County's unbeaten league run, which stretches back to August 2011.
