Duncan Ferguson insists he WON'T walk out on Inverness Caley Thistle even if they suffer relegation.

Caley Thistle are fighting for their lives in the Championship and will face the drop play-offs unless they better rivals Queen's Park's result against Airdrie when they host Morton in Friday night's league finale. Should the worst case scenario unfold and the Highlanders crash into League One, then big Dunc has told CEO Scot Gardiner that he's ready to stick around so long as he's wanted.

The Everton legend said: "As far as I know, I'll be here. That will be down to others to decide, but I have a three-year contract, so I will be here for the three years. I am confident we can do the business on Friday night. The main thing is to get three points and see where we are. Our fate is in other people's hands, but we just have to do our business.

"It's very important we remain in the Championship. We're a big club and have a lot of great fans, and great people running the club. We have to do everything we can to stay in the division. Hopefully that will happen on Friday."

Ferguson, 52, is fully aware of the financial implications relegation would have on the cash-strapped club and said: "You're aware of the pressures, but if any team is relegated from any division, there are financial implications.

"That's the same for us as it would for any club, even in England's Premier League. We're hoping we can stay in the division on Friday and we go from there, though."
