The 28-year-old, who arrived in Dingwall from Hibernian in 2019, agreed a deal to stay with the club next season.

Laidlaw was also named as Ross County's players' player of the season.

Charlie Lakin was named young player of the season.

Speaking about the new deal on RCFC TV, Laidlaw says he was pleased to secure his future at the club.

"I am delighted to get it agreed and over the finishing line," he said.

"I am enjoying my time here and my family moved up here and are enjoying living in the Highlands.

"I am enjoying playing my football week in, week out and its a great set up.

"I am enjoying it and hopefully there is more to come."

Charlie Lakin was also announced as the young player of the season.

Ross County conceded the second most amount of goals in the Premiership with 66, just one less than relegated Hamilton Academical.

Laidlaw says Ross County have to improve defensively next season.

"Not just personnel, but I think we struggled to find a shape that suited us," he said.

"When we maybe got a shape that suited us the following week we put in a poor performance.

"The last three weeks of the season we stuck with the same shape and it worked for us.

"If we found that earlier in the season it might have been easier.

"But that shape seemed to work for us and hopefully we can take that into next year."
