Richie Foran has been rewarded for Inverness Caledonian Thistle's turnaround in form with the Scottish Premiership Manager of the Month award for September.

The 36-year-old Dubliner led the club to draws against Celtic and Aberdeen as well as a 3-1 victory over Dundee.

The 2-2 draw with Celtic was the first time that Brendan Rodgers' side had not won a league game this season.

Prior to that, Inverness had lost three and won one of their opening four league fixtures.

The ex-St Patrick's Athletic and Shelbourne player has been in charge of the club since May.

The former Ireland under-21 international also represented Carlisle United and Motherwell during his playing career, before a seven-year spell with Inverness.
