Queens Park Rangers are delighted to confirm that fans’ favourite Jamie Mackie has signed a one-year contract extension to remain at Loftus Road. The player and club had been locked in negotiations since the season ended but have now finally reached a positive conclusion.
The 31-year-old was out of contract next month and facing the possible prospect of being a free agent. However, Mackie will be pleased to extend his second spell with the Hoops until the end of the 2017/18 campaign at the very least.
Injuries have certainly hampered him over the last few years but that hasn’t effected his overall positivity. The Scot managed to make 19 appearances last season, scoring the only goal in the 1-0 away triumph at play-off finalists Reading in January. Mackie now cannot wait to get back for pre-season and the new campaign in general,
“I’m buzzing that the deal is signed and my future is sorted.
“Everyone knows how I feel about QPR and when the opportunity came up to extend my stay here, it was a no-brainer for me.
“The last two years have been frustrating for me with the injuries, but I’m delighted the manager can see what I can bring by offering me this new deal.
“I just want to make sure I have a good pre-season, which I’m sure I will do under the gaffer, and really push on next season.”
Mackie also had a spell with QPR between 2010 and 2013, before leaving for Nottingham Forest in a £1million deal. He returned to the club in 2015, taking his overall appearance tally for the club to well over 100.
