Ross County manager Malky Mackay believes Stuart Taylor will be an asset for Ross County after making the former Wolves assistant a first-team coach.

Mackay was named Ross County manager last month and is shaping his backroom team. Taylor – who played for Ross County briefly between 2005-06 – joins in a coaching capacity at the cinch Premiership club, having worked as an assistant to Paul Lambert at Wolves, Stoke City and most recently Ipswich Town.

The 46-year-old has also been assistant manager at Hamilton and managed Irish side Limerick. Enda Barron has been brought in to help the date and recruitment services at Ross County, having worked with Mackay at Cardiff City in a similar position.

Mackay said: “Stuart is someone I have known for a number of years in football and brings vast experience of coaching at all levels of the game. He will be a fabulous addition to our coaching team at Ross County and I know our players will benefit from his advice and guidance. I’m excited to have Stuart on board with us for this next chapter.

“Having worked with Enda before I know how knowledgeable he is in his field and how important it is in the modern game to have a structured recruitment and performance analysis department. The support of our Chairman and Chief Executive has been imperative in enabling us to add this important area of high performance to our club.”
