Scotland international Craig Conway has penned a new two-and-a-half year deal with Blackburn Rovers.
The former Dundee United and Ayr United star has been a standout performer for Rovers since joining the club from Cardiff City in 2014, scoring 10 goals and claiming 29 assists in 80 appearances for the Championship outfit.
Conway has been an ever-present during Paul Lambert’s undefeated start to life at Ewood Park – and he had no hesitation in committing his future to the club until the summer of 2018.
He beamed: “It seems like forever that we’ve been speaking about it, but I’m just delighted to sign and to stay here for another two-and-a-half years.
“I’ve really enjoyed the time that I’ve been here and the minute that we spoke about a new contract I was really keen to get it done.
“With the change of manager, there was obviously a slight delay on it, but luckily for me the new manager was happy for it to go ahead.
“My family is settled here and everything is going well. From the day I signed, it just felt right and luckily on the pitch it’s gone really well for me.
“I’ve grown in confidence and I feel as though I’ve improved as well and the team-mates that I’ve played with as well have obviously helped that. I am probably playing the best football of my career.”
