GARY Warren has signed a new three-year deal with Inverness, the Highland club confirmed on their official website.
The 29-year-old defender, who signed from Newport County in 2012, had 12 months remaining on his contract but is “delighted” with his new deal which ties him to Caley until 2017.
Warren said: “I’ve really enjoyed living in Inverness and playing at the top level.
“Playing for this club is a real privilege, I have never been at a club before that embraces and engages with the community as we do at ICTFC.
“We may be small in numbers in comparison to other clubs but we have something special from top to bottom.
“Finishing in the top five two seasons running is quite an achievement and we’re looking to build on that, we will always look for continual improvement, that’s just the way we are at the club.”
The Englishman, who has made 78 appearances in his two season with Inverness while scoring nine goals, will also start on the road to a coaching career with the backing of chairman Kenny Cameron and manager John Hughes.
“I am keen to start my coaching badges and have discussed and agreed this with the chairman and John as I see this adding a further dimension to my game and I am keen to help and assist the club in any way I can.”
Hughes said: “Gary is a fine player and a great type to have at the club so I’m very pleased that he has committed himself to us going forward.
“This is an important step towards the continuity and stability of our squad which I’m seeking.”
