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.”
