Gardyne buzzing for Premiership opportunity
Michael Gardyne says he cannot wait to have another crack at the Premiership.
Ross County earned their spot back in Scotland’s top flight by winning the Championship title last season, their second trophy of the campaign after also claiming the Irn-Bru Cup.
Last time the Staggies were in the top tier of Scottish football, they finished bottom of the table by four points.
