Ross County was 'perfect option' for returning defender Foster


By Andrew Henderson


Richard Foster is back at Ross County after joining on a deal until the end of the season from St Johnstone.

Foster originally signed for the Staggies in 2015 from Rangers, starting as the club went on to lift the League Cup the next March.

But after just a single season in Dingwall, the full back left for St Johnstone, where he stayed until returning to County yesterday.

The 34-year-old said it was a perfect storm of factors that led to his return.

“I kind of do feel that my time here was cut short quite abruptly,” Foster recalled.

“I never wanted to leave when I did, different things happened and it forced me down that path. I went to St Johnstone and I enjoyed my time there.

“In football things change quickly – on Tuesday I was training with St Johnstone and yesterday I was training with Ross County.

“It all got done pretty quickly, it’s a great fit for me. It’s a club that I know really well, one I had success at.

“It’s back up north, it’s closer to family, so it was almost the perfect option for me at the right time.”
