Former St Johnstone midfielder Chris Millar has signed for Morton.

It will be a return to Cappielow for the 35-year-old, whose first spell there started in 2003.

“I am completely buzzing to be back,” said Millar.

“Obviously as I still stay local, a lot of people have been encouraging me to come back and as soon as the manager gave me the call and had a chat with me it was an easy decision for me to make.

“My ambitions for the club are to push for promotion and I cannot wait to get started.”

Morton boss Ray McKinnon, who had to fight off interest from his old club Dundee United to get Millar signed up, added: “I am thrilled to be able to welcome Chris back to the club.

“His vast experience and quality of play will be an exciting addition to the squad.

“He is obviously a Morton lad so he knows the environment and the supporters and he has the passion and desire to have another successful spell here.

“I knew after speaking with him that we both share the same ambitions and I am looking forward to working with him.”
