Defender Jack McMillan has extended his contract with Livingston.

The 22-year-old has put pen to paper on an improved deal at the Tony Macaroni which will now see him remain at the club until 2022.

The full-back first arrived at the club on loan from Motherwell in the summer of 2017, before turning the move permanent the following winter.

This term, McMillan has featured in the majority of games for Livi, making 25 appearances across all competitions so far.

Speaking about his new deal, McMillan told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted to be signed here for another two years. I’ve been speaking the last couple of weeks to Davey about being here and I think it’s the right club for me at this time in my life. I’m delighted to get it done.

“At the time I joined we got promoted to the Premiership and I thought at that time that we had the squad to stay up for a good few years. I thought I’d still be here, and I’m happy to still be here.

“Everyone was buzzing, it was an exciting place to be and it still is, we’re still doing really well and I think we’ve progressed again this year, so it’s an exciting place to be and play football.”

Deserved contract for McMillan

The star, who has played at left-back for the majority of games this season, is one of several tireless performers in Gary Holt’s side, and him committing until 2022 is a big boost.

Given he played a lot at centre-half on loan at Partick Thistle last season, it is great for the club to tie a really promising utility player down.
