Scottish Football: Jim Mclntyre leaves Queen of the South to take charge of Ross County

Ross County have confirmed that Jim McIntyre has been appointed manager after leaving Queen Of the South.

An approach was made by County over the weeekend, with an agreement being reached by both parties on Monday.

McIntyre's appointment comes just almost two weeks after County sacked Derek Adams and his father George as manager and director of football respectively.

Queen of the South released a statement thanking County and their now former manager for thei profes­si­onalism. It read: "Whilst clearly very disappointed, we understand his desire to work at a higher level again."

"The board thank (Jim) and Ross County for the professional manner in which the negotiations took place."

The statement continued: "We would also like to place on record our thanks for his services over the past 15 months and acknowledgement that he achieved all the targets set for him in that time."

"We believe he leaves the club well equipped to push for a play-off place in the Championship again despite the quality of clubs at this level this season."

"The process to find a replacement manager will begin immediately."
