Carey and St Mirren reached the Scottish League Cup Final where he came on as a substitute in the 81st minute at Hampden Park and was part of the winning side in the 3-2 victory over Hearts.
After two seasons at St Mirren, he moved to Ross County where he scored thee goals in 38 appearances. He met current manager Derek Adams’ at County but it was a short spell, however the two re-united in Devon.
