Former Wanderers defender Greg Strong has taken up the head of recruitment role at Scottish Premiership side Ross County.

Strong, who spent the past 18 months in a similar role at Morecambe, reunited with Derek Adams at the Global Energy Stadium.

“I am delighted Greg Strong will be joining as our head of recruitment," Adams told the club website.

"He has worked with me before at Plymouth Argyle and Morecambe where he has understood my footballing philosophy and the type of player that is required to be recruited for this to be a success.

"Greg is vastly experienced and has excellent contacts within the game.”

Ross County currently sit 11th in the table, having won four league games since the start of the campaign.

A couple of days ago, Morecambe thanked Strong for his "excellent service" in an official statement.

CEO Ben Sadler said: "We are naturally disappointed that Greg is moving on to a new opportunity as he is a top quality colleague and person, but we are very thankful for the work he has undertaken in the 18 months he has been at the club.

“Greg is a popular member of the team here and has been a pivotal part of our player recruitment across a number of transfer windows. We all wish Greg the very best in his new role.

“Our plans for the upcoming January transfer window have already been made and agreed with Ged (Brannan) and Greg, and we look forward to sharing news on signings throughout the month as and when complete.”

Morecambe find themselves 17th in the League Two table as they aim to bounce back from last season’s relegation from the third tier. The Shrimps drew 2-2 against Harrogate on New Year's Day after goals from Jordan Slew and Jacob Bedeau.
