Ross County defender Watson refuses to write former club St Johnstone off


By Andrew Henderson


Ross County defender Keith Watson says you can never count St Johnstone out, even though they are sitting without a win at the bottom of the Premiership table.

Watson moved north from Perth to Dingwall in the summer of 2018 after spending two seasons at McDiarmid Park.

And the 29-year-old has praised the work that his former manager Tommy Wright has done at the club over the last six years.

“Tommy has done a great job there,” he insisted.

“He has been there for a good while, and he has won the Scottish Cup with them.

“He has been getting into the top six when people weren’t expecting him to get there. They’ve lost a bit of experience now, I think they’ve got a younger squad, so it’s difficult to keep that success up year after year. “They have still got a very good side, and they’re more than capable of picking up plenty of points. I definitely wouldn’t write them off.

“Teams can have a bad start and we’re just hoping that come Saturday that bad start is going to continue and we’re going to come away with the three points.”
