Ross County have extended the contracts of strike pairing Liam Boyce, 24, and Craig Curran, 25, until summer 2017.

They have been integral to County's recovery, helping lift the club off the bottom of the Scottish Premiership and up to 10th place.

Youth team striker Kyle Macleod, 19, has also committed for the same period.

Manager Jim McIntyre said: "Liam and Craig have been in great form in the first team and local lad Kyle has shown a lot of promise."

One-time Werder Bremen striker Boyce, who has four Northern Ireland caps, was signed by previous manager Derek Adams from Cliftonville.

The 24-year-old has scored eight goals in 29 appearances since moving to Dingwall, with four of them coming in the last three games.

Englishman Curran was signed by McIntyre in January after leaving Conference Premier club Nuneaton Town.

The 25-year-old has found the net five times in 15 appearances for the Highland outfit.
