Manager Malky Mackay says he is looking for up to four more signings at Ross County before the end of the transfer window.

He says there is still a requirement to bring in new personnel on the pitch after their 3–0 defeat to Hibernian on Sunday.

Mackay says it is no secret new players are needed at Dingwall after last season 15 men left the club.

With Ross County having 11 days until their next game against champions Rangers at the Global Energy Stadium, Mackay says it is a good time to have a break and evaluate what needs to be done to improve the situation at the Global Energy Stadium.

“A lot of new faces have come into the building, but we need to try and get more players in,” he said.

“We lost 15 players, so we knew that has had to happen and there is still time for that to happen.

“We need three or four in but that is nothing I didn’t know.”

Speaking about the break, he said: “It is a good thing as we can get a bit of hard work in this week and get everybody up to speed. “Technically and tactically we can do analysis but we need to get work into our legs, but we lost 10 days on everyone else in the league due to the Covid outbreak.”

Mackay had no complaints about the 3–0 defeat at Hibernian, with all the goals coming in the space of 10 minutes midway through the first half.

However, he was encouraged by their performance after the break and the introduction of new signings Jack Burroughs, David Cancola and Harry Clarke.

“We looked at making a couple of changes and made some debutants and tried to go on the front foot.

“I thought we started well and came to a terrific team and a good manager that finished third last year with a squad of really good players.

“We played a good team but in second half we caused our own issues. There was another game that was 3–0 at half time and it finished six and I didn’t want that to happen to us.”
