Ross Stewart admits it’s nice to hear big names linked with him, but his sole focus is all things Ross County.
A recent report linked the Staggies man with a move to Blackburn or Stoke City (Daily Record). He is the Dingwall side’s Premiership top scorer with seven league strikes.
Stewart responded to the interest with two goals against Hibs in a 2-1 win. Whilst it’s ‘very flattering’ to hear names linked with him, Stewart says a move isn’t in his head just now.
He told the Daily Record (page 62, 06/12/19): “A few boys in the changing room were having a bit of banter about it but I don’t look into that.
“We’re not even really close to January yet so I’m just focusing on helping the team. I was able to do that on Wednesday and if I’m scoring goals there is always going to be a bit of interest which is very flattering.”
Stewart going the right way for a big move to the likes of Blackburn or Stoke
In his last two games Stewart has netted three goals and that total really should be four. His second goal in a 4-1 defeat to Celtic was questionably ruled out for offside.
Having scored 12 goals in all competitions last term, he’s already scored 11 in 20 games this season. Stewart’s form has entered the consistent realm, a brilliant trait for any striker.
It seems as if he has his head screwed on too. Whilst the likes of Blackburn and Stoke are reportedly interested, Stewart seems keen on impressing the likes of the Championship duo, but with his mind fully on County.
He’ll continue to be a big player for Ross County this season and they’ll hope no reported interest is materialised in January.
