We are delighted to confirm midfielder Chris Millar has today extended his contract at Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton.

Chris extends his contract having made 19 league appearances this season, helping David Hopkins side to a seventh-place finish in Scotland’s second tier.

The former Celtic youth graduate signed for his hometown club in February 2003 when Greenock Morton were in the Scottish Third Division. Millar made his debut at Montrose that year and was part of the side that won the 2002/2003 Third Division Title under former manager John McCormack.

Having impressed during his time in Greenock, Chris signed for Scottish First Division side St Johnstone. In his first season at the club he was an integral part of the team that won the League title and promotion to the Scottish Premiership. Season after season, Millar established himself as a regular starter for the Perthshire side and lifted the Scottish Cup in 2014 beating Dundee United 2-0 at Celtic Park.

After Tommy Wright’s appointment as the club’s new manager in 2013, Chris continued to play each week and was rewarded with a new two-year contract in January 2015. Upon the expiry of his contract at St Johnstone, he was granted a testimonial by the club having completed 10 years of service before leaving at the end of the 2017/2018 season.

Millar returned to Morton for his second spell in May 2019 and even though he was limited to first team starts, Chris was a big player in league wins against Ayr United & QOS back in February. Now that the club have extended Chris’ stay, he hopes to help them go one step further and reach the Premiership Playoffs this season.

Everyone at Superior Sports Management sends their best wishes to Chris & Greenock Morton ahead of the new Championship season.
