Richie Foran leaves Inverness following disappointing campaign

Inverness have confirmed that manager Richie Foran has left the club following their relegation from the Ladbrokes Premiership.
The former club captain stepped up to become Caley Thistle boss last summer but the Irishman's one season in charge did not go well, as the club were demoted after registering just seven league wins.
Kenny Cameron subsequently announced that he was stepping down as chairman and his successor Willie Finlayson confirmed on Monday that Foran has left the club.
Finlayson said: "Richie has been a great servant to ICTFC and put 100 per cent into his job as manager and previously as a player.
"We all thank him for his service and wish him and his family all the very best for the future."
Foran was given his management chance after Scottish Cup-winning boss John Hughes quit in protest at cuts to his playing budget.
Inverness then lost their first four league games under Foran but he was named manager of the month for September after an upturn in results.
But the improvement proved short-lived and, by the time of the Premiership split, Caley Thistle had mustered just four wins and were stranded at the bottom of the table.
Foran did manage to inspire his team to three wins from their final four games but that was not enough to save Inverness from the drop.
