GABLE ENDIES SECURE RENNIE ON 2 YEAR DEAL
Montrose FC have extended the contract of Martin Rennie for a further year, keeping the much talked about young striker at Links Park until the summer of 2020.
The 24 year old arrived from Junior side Lochgelly Albert back in January and was initially seen as a long term development prospect, but the highly sought after goal scorer grabbed his chance with both hands.
Quickly becoming a fans favourite, Rennie made 10 appearances and netted 4 times last term and his strength and determination was instrumental in setting up Jamie Redman’s equaliser against Elgin on the last day of the season to secure the SPFL Ladbrokes League 2 title for Stewart Petrie’s men.
With experienced veteran Chris Templeman hanging up his boots in the summer the Mo faithful were cautious over who would lead their charge into League 1 but it appears Martin is ready to step up to the challenge.
His performances this season including the winner against Falkirk on the opening weekend of the Betfred Cup has led to a number of early enquiries from other clubs, which makes the Mo Boss even more delighted over the strikers decision to extend his stay at Links Park.
Petrie said, “I am super pleased that Martin has agreed to extend his contract with us. He has done really well and has risen to every challenge we have set him.
“He has good ability, fabulous potential and undoubtedly a bright future in the game but most importantly the lad has a great attitude and temperament and he will be a big, big player for us this year.”
