Randall excited by manager Kettlewell’s vision for Staggies

Connor Randall insists one conversation with manager Stuart Kettlewell was all it took to convince him Ross County was the right move for him.

The former Liverpool defender was one of three new arrivals at Ross County last week and the 24 year old is excited by Kettlewell’s vision for the Staggies.

He said: “The chat with the manager was the major factor in me coming here. I had spoken to a few clubs but Ross County came back within a day asking about me and a couple of days later the deal was done.

“The club made me feel wanted and the gaffer talked a lot about the way he wanted to play and how he saw my role in the team. It’s a great group of lads here, I got that feeling from day one. You get a sense of what things are going to be like when you walk in here and I feel settled already.

“Having come back from Bulgaria it has been a quick turnaround. The conversation with Ross County was enough and what was said fits with what I want to do. It’s the perfect opportunity for me.”

Randall has experience of Scottish football, having spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Hearts, and the full back believes he is returning to Scotland a better player for the experience gained both in his last spell and at Rochdale and most recently Arda Kardzhali of Bulgaria.

He said: “It was an experience I look back on fondly. I played there for a full season with a
good bunch of lads and Edinburgh was a lovely place to live. I took a lot from it and look back with some good memories from that time.

“I’ve had different experiences since then which you learn from whether they are good, bad or indifferent. I’m coming back more experienced and I’m older.

“I’m hungry to get back to playing again and excited to see what the season holds.

“I know Don Cowie who is the first team coach now. We played together at Hearts and I got on very well with him. When this chance came up I spoke to Don and the manager and from that conversation it left me with no questions about coming up here.”
