The former Falkirk and Hibs player told his club's official website: "I'm delighted to sign. The biggest thing – I say it to the younger players – is to enjoy every day.

"I'm enjoying it as much as I ever have. It's great to be playing alongside a young group of players who have so much potential.

"If I can give them any advice or help along the way on and off the park, then brilliant. I take a lot of pride in still playing at this level."
