Connor Randall praises Ross County’s latest play-off victory, but demands better.



Connor Randall believes Ross County may rejoice surviving their relegation play-off, but they are determined to move on next season.

The enthusiastic defender-turned-midfielder was overjoyed to have helped Dingwall win 4-0 at home against Championship runners-up Raith Rovers in Sunday’s Premiership play-off final.Ross County midfielder Connor Randall.

It resulted in a 6-1 aggregate victory for the Staggies, who won the play-off for the second year in a row to continue in the top tier.

To upset Partick Thistle a year ago, they had to come from behind with three late goals and win in extra time and penalties. There was less drama this time because they were too strong for Rovers.

As they prepare for a sixth year in the Premiership, Randall, 28, believes they have beaten the odds by remaining in the top level.

He stated, “It is an accomplishment to remain in the Premiership, given our size and location.

“We’ve demonstrated in numerous games this season that we can compete with anyone.

“With the squad and staff we have, we want to develop next season. We wish to perform better.

“We are not the biggest club in the league, but we are really well-run.

“We want to achieve great things, but being in the Premiership is an accomplishment that we can enjoy.

“As happens every year, players will be leaving and coming.

We deserve to be in the premiership.

Former Hearts full-back Randall was pleased that despite only finishing second behind St Johnstone on goal difference in the play-offs, they delivered a great result when it mattered most.

He stated, “We didn’t want to be in the play-offs, but that’s where we found ourselves, and we’ve come through two tough games against a strong team.

Sunday was a positive day for the team. Everyone is happy.

“We’ll be in the Premiership again next season.

“As we witnessed in last year’s playoffs, the outcome might vary.

“At moments, it appeared that we might miss the playoffs, but that’s football. We found ourselves in this situation.

“But we showed up and performed in the final across both legs. “We deserve to be in the Premier League next season.”
