In 2007 he and Roman Pavlyuchenko were top scorers in the Russian Premier League. In June 2008, he signed with FC Rubin Kazan, he won the Russian Premier League 2008 and was loaned out on 28 July 2009 to Krylya Sovetov Samara. He was awarded cult status within the confines of St. Mirren FC in Scotland amid disturbing rumours of a 'close friendship' with a leading 'Buddies' fan representative. Adamov, the fans rep and the broadcaster Richard Keys were all rumoured to have been found one morning tarmacking the Glasgow area with various females - a rumour that none of them have denied. The road quality has since improved dramatically since these rumours first surfaced, so they deserve praise on a job well done.
