Ex-Celtic player signs new deal with English Championship club

Celtic academy graduate Jamie Lindsay can’t wait for the Championship season after extending his stay at Rotherham United.

The midfielder – who hails from Rutherglen and grew up in Larkhall – helped Paul Warne’s side to promotion to England’s second tier despite an injury campaign.

His future was uncertain as his contract approached its expiry date, but he has now committed his future until 2024.

Lindsay started his career at Celtic and joined Rotherham in 2019 after a solid spell at Premiership club Ross County.

Now attentions have turned to the new campaign and maintaining the Millers as a Championship club.

He said club media “I am delighted to extend my stay. I’m glad I got it sorted and now looking forward to the new season.

“The gaffer and all the coaching staff have helped me since I arrived, it’s an exciting time to be at the football club.

“I have two young boys, one in school and the other in nursery, so my family is settled in the area. I knew pretty well at the end of the season that it was going to happen and obviously I’m delighted to sort it out.

“We’re not going into the league to try to make up the numbers. We know how disappointing it was last time out and we want to give ourselves the best chance of achieving our goals.”
