Kenny Miller signs new one-year-deal

Kenny Miller has signed a one-year contract extension as his current deal was due to expire in 2016. Mark Warburton spoke to the official web site on the extension;

“This is a playing contract. Kenny is doing his coaching qualifications and doing great work with our under 20s and gaining invaluable experience but have no doubts, Kenny has earned this contract from a playing perspective. 
“From the first day of pre-season he developed a real desire and a passion to help take the club forward and he’s made a very positive contribution both on and off the pitch. 
“His seniority within the squad is very important, his knowledge and his experience are special when we have such a young squad and have recruited young players and have taken in young loan players too.
“The experience of the likes of Kenny, Dean Shiels and Lee Wallace, as captain of course, is invaluable. 
“So he has a key role to play on and off the pitch and I am delighted to have Kenny accept this new contract offer. 
“David and I are thrilled to have him commit to the club for another year and I hope very much that Kenny feels a bit part of what we’re doing going forward. 
“We’re looking forward to him making a very positive contribution to the club’s development in the coming months.”
