When Robbie Deas joined us from Celtic three years ago, few ICT fans would have known that much about him.

It wasn’t a straightforward deal because Robbie still had a year left in his Celtic contract and without Robbie’s determination to come to ICT, the deal would not have been completed because other teams were trying to sign him, most in the central belt. Robbie made 113 appearances for the club and scored 2 goals.

Since joining us in the Highlands he has been a consummate professional and a joy for John Robertson, Neil McCann and Billy Dodds to work with. We turned down several offers for Robbie because we wanted to get to the Premiership and as far as we could in the Cup and his professionalism shone through because he was never less than 100% committed to our cause. 

His broken leg undoubtedly had a huge influence on our progress this season and while we are all sorry to see him go, he goes with our best wishes and utmost respect.

Now that the historic and completely focused Scottish Cup Final effort is behind us, we will give further updates re the players and coaches contractual situations in the next couple of days but suffice to say, good work and progress has been made behind the scenes.
