Brittain Made Of Strong Stuff

Richard Brittain is looking forward to being ready for pre-season despite being carried off on Saturday
Ross County captain Richard Brittain is pleased to report that his knee injury is not as bad as first feared and he will be fit for pre-season. Brittain had to be replaced after he was stretchered off at Fir Park on Saturday after twisting his knee after sliding in for an attempted block during his side's 2-0 defeat by Motherwell. The medical team were worried that he had suffered cruciate ligament damage so sent him to hospital as a precaution.
However, Brittain wrote on his Twitter account: "Injury is not as bad as I initially thought thank god. I'll be fit and ready to go for pre season #staggies."
There is still some doubt over which team he will be playing for next season after he asked to be released from the pre-contract agreement he signed with St Johnstone in January. Saints have so far refused to tear up the two-year deal and the Perth club's chairman, Steven Brown, promised to honour the contract in the wake of his injury.
