QPR star keen to sign new contract

Jamie Mackie says he wants to sign a new contract at QPR and spend the rest of his career at Loftus Road.

Mackie is in his second spell at Rangers, where he remains a hugely popular figure among fans.

His current deal is due to expire at the end of the season and the Scotland international told West London Sport he is keen to stay.

“I want to be here for as long as I can be. I love playing for QPR,” he said.

“I want to play for QPR, not for another club. I’ll hopefully do well for the rest of the season and it can all get sorted out.”

Mackie’s second stint with Rangers has been badly affected by injury problems.

A long-term hamstring issue sidelined him before an ankle injury suffered in training condemned him to another long spell out of action.

He has made a strong return this season, playing an important role under boss Ian Holloway.

But Mackie admits he needs to further prove to the club that he is worth keeping beyond the end of the current campaign.

He said: “So far, we’ve not spoken. But I want to sign for the club again and stay here for the rest of my career if given the opportunity, but I need to make sure I’m an asset for the club.”
