Inverness manager John Hughes has signed a new deal through to the summer of 2018.

Two years after joining the Highlands club, the 51-year-old has penned a three-year extension after a successful time in charge.

The former Hibernian and Hartlepool manager has overseen fourth- and third-placed finishes in the Scottish Premiership, while this summer they beat Celtic to win the Scottish Cup.

That gave the club a maiden European fixture and Hughes is hoping to experience similar success in the future.

“I’m extremely pleased that negotiations have been satisfactorily concluded and that my future lies with Caley Thistle,” he said on the club’s official website.

“It’s the outcome I really wanted as I’ve really enjoyed myself at the club and in the Highlands.

“Now that this is done, my focus will be on re-signing, in the coming weeks, players who are out of contract this summer. This is vital if we are going to prosper and I’m very hopeful we can make progress on this front.”
