The club confirmed the defender who has made 82 appearances for the Staggies to date, agreed a new contract on Monday.

Speaking about the new deal, he said: “I am delighted to be here for another season.

"It’s a place where I have been happy for a number of seasons now and I am really looking forward to what lies ahead. This is an exciting new chapter for us all.

“It was great that we managed to secure Premiership football again for this season, but we want to kick on.

"We have really hungry people here and we want to improve on the last campaign.”

Watson joined the Staggies in 2018 under Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson, to help the club gain promotion straight back to the top-flight at the first time of asking.

As well winning the Championship trophy, he has also picked up an Irn Bru Challenge Cup winners medal.

Manager Malky Mackay commented: “Keith is an experienced player that brings many attributes to the club.

"He is respected in the dressing room, reliable, and consistent on and off the field. "In short, very professional, and someone that younger players can look up to and learn from. Keith will continue to be a good asset to Ross County and I look forward to working with him.”
