Captain Keith Watson has departed Ross County after five years with the Dingwall club.

The 33-year-old former Dundee United defender joined the Staggies in 2018 and made more than 100 appearances.

County described Watson as “a great servant to the club” as they announced on Thursday that he will be moving on this summer following the expiry of his contract.

“Unfortunately, my time at County has come to an end, what a 5 years it’s been,” Watson said in a statement on the club’s website.

“From winning the Championship to a dramatic play off win to stay in the Premiership – where County belong.

“That last play-off game (against Partick Thistle earlier this month) was one of the craziest games I’ve ever played in and the belief and never say die attitude from the lads was incredible, it was a pleasure playing along side you all.

“A big thank you to the fans and everyone at the club for the past 5 years and I wish Ross County nothing but success in the future.”

Austrian midfielder David Cancola and English striker Dominic Samuel – both of whom joined County two years ago – have also left the Highland club.
