The 23-year-old, who scored 60 goals in the past two title-winning seasons for Cliftonville, will move to Dingwall when his contract expires next month.

As well as time at Solitude, Boyce previously had a spell in Germany with Werder Bremen and his form during this year's domestic campaign earned him a call up for Northern Ireland's friendlies with Chile and Uruguay.

He had set his sights on full-time football and on Thursday, Cliftonville manager Tommy Breslin admitted the club had withdrawn their offer of a new deal after no response from Boyce.

A statement from Ross County FC's manager Derek Adams said: "We have been tracking Liam's progress for a while now and are delighted to have completed his signing today.

"Liam had opportunities in Scotland and England but after visiting us last week has chosen to join Ross County.

"He is a proven goal-scorer and has recently been called up again to the full International team".

Stop being so negitive Gareth he is going to a full time league, ok it's not the strongest but he'll end up a fitter better player, Dundee united also wanted him and Shamrock Rovers so the boy must have something?

Ross county should also go for Gormley he would score goals for them, he and Boyce play well together, some say Gormley is the better player

While Crusaders may be bossing the Danske Bank Premiership, it was their North Belfast rivals Cliftonville who made the headlines again this weekend.
