Ross County boss John Hughes was full of praise for recent signing Jordan White who helped County to a notable win in the battle to avoid relegation.

White, who recently joined Ross County from Motherwell, scored the equaliser and set up Billy McKay’s winning goal in the 2-1 win over Hamilton. The win saw Ross County move four points clear of last placed Hamilton in the relegation battle.

Hughes was pleased to see White, who was making his County debut, make such an impact on the game.

“I’m pleased”

“I’m pleased for Jordan. Most of the guys we’ve brought in this year we’ve had to work to get them up to speed. If you work them too hard you get injuries” he said.

“But Jordan came in really fit and his numbers are good. It was touch and go if we were going to start him. But I’m pleased he has come on” Hughes continued.


The Ross County manager now seems pleased with the squad he has in place. Indeed, he has suggested that all his players will have a role to play in keeping the team in the Premiership.

“Plenty of numbers”

“You want them on from the start, but you can leave the back door open. With the covid and everything we’ve got plenty of numbers. The problem is keeping them happy.

“They’ve all got a part to play between now and the end of the season. Competition is healthy and that’s a good result” he concluded.

Ross County is next in action on Saturday when they take on Dundee United.
