Jamie Mackie: Has been rewarded with a one-year contract extension by QPR
QPR forward Jamie Mackie has agreed a one-year extension to his contract, committing him to the club until 2015.
Mackie enjoyed an impressive first season in the Premier League, grabbing seven goals including the Hoops' second on a dramatic final day at Manchester City.
Although QPR eventually lost the match, their Premier League status was secured thanks to Stoke's draw against Bolton.
It has marked quite a turnaround for the 26-year-old who spent nearly nine months out after suffering a double leg break in an FA Cup tie at Blackburn in January 2011.
But the Scotland international has made a complete recovery and has now been rewarded with a new deal at the club.
"To be given the opportunity to extend my contract is fantastic for me," he told QPR's official website.
"It's really exciting times for the club. Now we've stayed up, I think next season could be a really big one for QPR.
"To be a part of the long-term future of the club is an aim of mine and I'm really happy.
"Hopefully the manager can add even more quality to the squad in the summer to supplement what we've already got.
"With the new training ground too and the passion of the owners for the club, it's an amazing time for the football club.
"From day one, the fans have been brilliant with me - especially when I broke my leg. They carried on supporting me all the way through that.
"It meant a lot to me. Hopefully my performances since have gone a little way to paying them back for the support that they showed me."
