County get back to business

Stag­gies: At­tacker Mckay glad new man­ager Coyle was in­stalled so quickly

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - SPORT -

Ross County for­ward Billy Mckay says the swift ap­point­ment of Owen Coyle as man­ager has al­lowed the Stag­gies to get down to business ahead of to­day’s Premier­ship trip to Kil­marnock.

Stag­gies chair­man Roy MacGre­gor took the de­ci­sion to sack Jim McIntyre in the wake of last Satur­day’s 1-0 de­feat by Hiber­nian, which was County’s fifth loss in their last six league games.

MacGre­gor acted quickly by ap­point­ing Coyle, most Glas­gow golfer Conor O’Neil ad­vanced to stage two of the Euro­pean Tour qual­i­fy­ing school at Harde­lot, France, but Wallace Booth (Pit­lochry Golf ) missed the 54-hole cut.

O’Neil carded rounds of 73, 68, 69 and 67 for a sev­e­nun­der-par to­tal of 277 – 11 shots be­hind the win­ner, French­man An­toine Rozner.

Booth missed the cut on 225.
