Callachan, who scored 10 goals in 37 appearances for Hamilton Accies last campaign, joins the Staggies on a two-year deal.

Speaking about signing at Ross County, Callachan said: “This is an exciting time to join the club.

"Obviously, the new manager has come in and has explained what his vision and plans are and that has mirrored my ambitions.

"I’m just looking forward to getting in for pre-season now and meeting the group.”

“I hope that the fans here would have seen some of my performances last season and from that seen what I will aim to bring Ross County going forward.

"After being more than a year without fans it’s going to be great to see them coming back and hopefully, we get the chance to meet them sooner rather than later.”

Callachan came through the development ranks at Raith Rovers- where he made 169 appearances before spells with Hearts and St Johnstone.

"After a season on-loan at Dundee in 2019/20, Callachan joined Hamilton last summer and would go on to be vital player for Accies.

Manager Malky Mackay was pleased to capture his signature.

He said: “Ross is a player that took his opportunity in the Premiership last year

"I think anybody that watched Hamilton will have seen how big a part he played for them and he was a real leader for them in the middle of the park.

“It was important for Ross that he remained in the Premiership, and we believe he has real qualities that can add to our group.

"At 27, Ross is at a good age where he has experience behind him, and this is an exciting addition for us so early on in my tenure."
