Celtic defender Stephen McManus has ended speculation over his future by signing a new deal at Parkhead.
The 23-year-old has inked a new two-year deal, with Celtic holding an option to extend it by a further year.
McManus has established himself as a key member of Gordon Strachan's side this season after finding himself well down the pecking order under former manager Martin O'Neill.
Strachan was keen to tie down McManus to a new long-term contract with his current deal due to expire in the summer.
McManus was delighted to pledge his future to the club.
"I'm delighted to have agreed this new contract and, hopefully, I'll be able to enjoy some success with the club in the next few years," McManus told the club's official website.
