It is a trophy double for Inverness Caledonian Thistle after David Wotherspoon was named the Scottish Championship player of the month.
Earlier today, gaffer Duncan Ferguson had claimed the manager of the month prize for a period that saw the Caley Jags go unbeaten – drawing against Dundee United and Dunfermline either side of a win over Ayr United.
Canadian international Wotherspoon was instrumental in all of those games, hitting the ground running in the Highland capital after penning a short-term deal in mid-October.
The St Johnstone legend scored against The Honest Men, and has immediately become a key man for Inverness having formed an exciting partnership with Billy Mckay in particular.
Such has been his impact, Ferguson has already asked the ICT board to sign Wotherspoon up to a longer contract – a call that has been echoed by the likes of Mckay.
When asked if any progress had been made earlier this week, Ferguson said: "The club know my situation on David, as does David. I want that done as soon as possible, but I have not heard anything more on that unfortunately.
"David has been training well. He likes it here and the quicker we can get him tied up, the better.
"I hope the club are on with that. He is a player we need and we want him at this club. He is a great player and a great leader and great trainer."
