Derek Adams (born 25 June 1975) is a former Scottish footballer who is currently manager at Ross County. He is the son of George Adams, who is the Director of Football at the Dingwall club.



Born in Aberdeen, Adams began his career with his hometown club but failed to make a first-team appearance, moving to English side Burnley, making a couple of league appearances in the mid-1990s before returning to Scotland with Ross County in 1996. Spending two years with The Staggies, Adams joined Motherwell in 1998, spending six years at Fir Park, including a short loan spell with Ayr United. Adams was one of a number of players affected by the club's administration problems, accepting a pay cut in April 2002.[1] Adams failed to win any trophies during his time with Well, although he scored in the 2003-04 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat against Rangers.[2] In 2004, Adams agreed a pre-contract move to hometown club Aberdeen,[3] spending a year at Pittodrie before being transfer-listed[4] and leaving for Livingston in 2005.[5] In 2006, Adams returned to Ross County as player/coach[6] and in November 2007, Adams was appointed player/manager, having served as caretaker manager since October.[7] Despite the terms of Adams' appointment, his last playing appearance remains in October 2007.
