St Mirren midfielder Greg Kiltie said he was delighted to have his future settled after signing a new contract with the club.
Kiltie was in the final months of his contract in Paisley and free to speak to other clubs about a summer move but he has agreed a two-year extension that runs to June 2025.
After scoring the third goal for Saints in their 3-1 win over Aberdeen on Saturday, he said he was delighted to have more good news.
“It’s been a very good weekend for me,” he told the club’s official website. “It was a straightforward decision for me when it all came about. I love the squad we have and everything about the place so I’m just delighted that it’s done.
“It’s nice to have the off the pitch matters settled and I can focus on the pitch and kicking on. I think we have a really good group here and we can kick on this second half of the season.
“I would like to have played more this season but it’s a strong squad and everyone is fighting for places which is a good thing for the team going forward.”
Kiltie joined the club from Kilmarnock in June of last year and has gone on to establish himself as an important player in the squad and manager Stephen Robinson was happy that he can look forward to getting the best from him in years to come.
“He’s somebody that we want to be part of what we are doing,” Robinson said. “He gives us goals from midfield and great quality and something different.
“I think he’s had a fight on his hands with the three midfielders that have started really well, but we were desperate for him to sign. He conducts himself brilliantly when he’s not in the team and he’s probably been a little unfortunate not to have played more games.
“We have offered contracts to four or five of the boys. He’s the first one to commit and I see him playing a big part going forward.”
