Campbell confirmed as County boss
Dick Campbell has a laugh in happier times at Firhill
Dick Campbell was sacked by Partick Thistle in March
Dick Campbell has been unveiled as Ross County's new manager.

But he was warned he would be sacked if he fails to take the just-relegated County straight back into Division One.

The former Partick Thistle manager said he was delighted at his appointment and appreciates the honesty of the club - which he described as "refreshing".

"My mission is to get this club back into the First Division this season, either by winning the title or going up via the play-offs," Campbell said.

A former player with the Staggies 30 years ago, Campbell said he needs to bring in up to 10 new faces in order to gain promotion.

The former Dunfermline Athletic and Brechin City boss was sacked by Partick Thistle in March as the Glasgow side failed to challenge for promotion.

Ross County's chairman Roy McGregor said his club did not belong in the Second Division.

Campbell had taken Thistle out of the Second Division the previous season, a feat he also achieved for Brechin.

And McGregor told BBC Scotland he is confident that Campbell is the right man for the job, highlighting the fact that he has gained promotion five times with previous clubs.

Campbell added: "Seeing the quality of the facilities that exist here was also a big factor."
