Derek Adams in shock Morecambe manager return after disastrous Ross County stint

Derek Adams has made yet another shock management return - this time to Morecambe in League Two.

The former Ross County boss left the Staggies earlier this season after a short yet ill-fated stint in the Highlands. Now, for the third time in his career, he has opted to head back to the Shrimps where he'll take charge once again. Adams endured a difficult time in Scotland this year and lasted just 79 days back in Dingwall.

"I’m looking forward to it! Morecambe FC is a club I know well from my previous two spells at the football club, and I am looking forward to getting started," he said.

"There is a lot of work to be done over the transfer window to get ready for the start of the new season, and I know the Board of Directors were looking for a manager who knows the football club and how it works.

"I’m delighted to come back and try and help the football club move forward again. This will come not only through myself, my staff, and the players, but the supporters of the football club as well who have been through a really difficult period."

Adams created controversy in Scotland this season when he claimed Morecambe were "100 times better" than County and that the standard of the Premiership was "shocking". He then hinted he'd been having second thoughts about his return to the SPFL before he quit not too long afterwards.
