Tremarco and Fisher to sign Caley Jags extensions

Carl Tremarco could remain with Caley Thistle until 2019.
Carl Tremarco could remain with Caley Thistle until 2019.

Caley Thistle expect to tie up contract extensions for defender Carl Tremarco and forward Alex Fisher before tomorrow’s Premiership match against Aberdeen.

Tremarco has been offered a one-year extension to keep him at Caledonian Stadium until 2018, while Fisher, whose deal runs out in January, is set to remain with the Highlanders until the end of the season.

Caley Jags manager Richie Foran hailed the impact made by Englishman Tremarco, who has made the left-back position his own since Graeme Shinnie’s departure to tomorrow’s opponents last summer.

Foran said: “Carl has been very consistent in his performances and he’s a real goal threat now, on four goals. He’s good in the tackle, good in the air, he’s everything we want and need. He shows the right attitude around the place as well.

“Carl has stepped in there superbly. Graeme was on some fine form when he was here – a top player.

“Carl had to be patient for a long time. But when Graeme left, John Hughes didn’t go and look elsewhere and I haven’t looked elsewhere, either.

“We know Carl is good enough to play in that position and we’ve got David Raven and Josh Meekings who can fill in there if needs be.

“I’m happy with that position and not looking at left back at all as Carl has been very consistent this season.”

Foran also heaped praise on attacker Fisher, who suffered an ankle injury setback after joining from Torquay United last January but has shown promise so far this term, netting a late equaliser in the 2-2 draw against Celtic at Caledonian Stadium in September.

Foran added: “Alex deserves it. He’s improved a lot over the last two or three months. He’s learning – he’s a real listener. He’s very dedicated to his job. His workrate is phenomenal, training on and off the park. He’s first in in the morning and the last to leave.

“I couldn’t ask for any more from Alex. When he’s got his chance he’s impressed. He’s a good footballer and there’s more to come from him. He’ll just have to be a bit patient and wait his chance while Lonsana Doumbouya is still going strong.”

Foran confirmed midfielder Liam Polworth is likely to be ruled out for up to eight weeks after suffering ankle ligament damage during Inverness’ recent 3-0 defeat by Celtic at Parkhead, while David Raven is a doubt for tomorrow’s game against the Dons due to concussion.
