Ross County striker David Ngog insists he remains 100 per cent committed to the Staggies despite the departure of Owen Coyle.
The pair previously worked together when Coyle signed the 28-year-old Frenchman from Liverpool for Bolton Wanderers in a £4m move in 2011.
They were reunited in January this year when Ngog joined the Staggies as a free agent but Coyle quit as manager just six weeks later with County rooted to the bottom of the Scottish Premiership.
Despite the upheaval, Ngog said he is just as committed to help the Dingwall side escape relegation as ever.
“For me, there is no doubt I am 100% committed to the club,” he said.
“I came here with a responsibility as a footballer and I will do my job to the best of my ability.”
The change of manager is nothing new for Ngog, he played under three different managers at Liverpool, two at Bolton and said it had happened during a spell with Reims in his native France as well.
He maintains a good relationship with Coyle and the pair have exchanged texts since the ex-County boss left last week.
Ngog is, however, optimistic about what he has seen so far from new co-interim managers Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson.
Ngog said: “The new management team have good ideas.
“They come from the youth team but they have good knowledge of football, they are clever and have good football intelligence.
“We will adapt and it is up to us, as players, to take responsibility for the next test.
“I think Owen Coyle is a good man and a good manager, I wished him good luck for the future.
“The timing was the surprising aspect, coming at the end of the week, but he left in a good manner and now we are up to the next challenge.”
The next test is about as difficult as it comes in Scottish football at the moment, with County away at Kilmarnock this afternoon.
The Staggies won 2-0 at Rugby Park in Coyle’s first match back in September but under new boss Steve Clarke they have been transformed and have only lost once in their 16 matches.
Ngog added: “The mood has been positive. Against St Johnstone we felt we had a really poor game and it was unfortunate because it was against a team we felt we could beat.
“The next game is very important and I think we can win.”
