Gardyne keen to repay faith
Midfielder Michael Gardyne has nothing to prove to anyone but himself as he begins for a new Premiership campaign at Ross County.
The 29-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Victoria Park, recently signed a two-year deal to make his return to the Staggies permanent.
The transfer ended a disappointing spell with his former club Dundee United, where he rarely featured. But Gardyne, who helped keep County in the Scottish Premiership at the end of last season, is interested only in repaying manager Jim McIntyre’s faith.
He said: “The only point I have to prove is to myself, I didn’t feel like I had anything to prove to United. As soon as the manager signed me he said he was confident I would do well for the club.”
