Ross County captain Richard Brittain has allayed fears over his knee injury by declaring he would be fit for pre-season.

Brittain was carried off on a stretcher at Fir Park on Saturday after twisting his knee while sliding in for an attempted block during his side’s 2-0 defeat by Motherwell.

The 29-year-old was taken to hospital amid fears he had suffered cruciate ligament damage.

But he 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.”

The midfielder’s future remains uncertain 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, vowed to honour the contract in the wake of his ­injury.
