RICHARD FOSTER has told of his regret for the way his career at St Johnstone ended.

The former Rangers and Aberdeen full-back made a shock exit from McDiarmid Park in August following a training ground bust-up with his former manager Tommy Wright.

His departure sparked a war of words between Wright and Foster’s rocker wife Amy Macdonald before the 34-year-old signed up with Premiership rivals Ross County.

Wright has now left McDiarmid Park too and Foster has revealed that the pair have drawn a line under the spat and now keep in contact on a regular basis.

Speaking to Si Ferry on the Open Goal podcast, Foster said: “Weirdly I have spoken to him a few times during the lockdown.

“We fell out but the first time I saw him was when he came up to Ross County, we played against them.

“I shook his hand and spoke to him and then we spoke again after and everything was fine.

“The two of us are similar like, there’s no point holding grudges, it happened, you fall out, you make up and it is fine.

“I certainly do and I get the feeling from him that I kind of regret the way it ended with St Johnstone.

“I played some of my best football under him, he probably understood me more as a person than any other manager I worked with.

“It was just kind of disappointing the way the two of us let it end, but I still speak to him.”

Foster also told that Wright’s McDiarmid Park departure didn’t come as a shock to him.

When quizzed if he was surprised, he added: “No, I think there was a few things that were starting to annoy him about the club.

“I don’t know what they were but just hearing through the grapevine it just got to the point where he went you know what I’ve had enough.”
