Delight as Alex Gogic signs a new three-year-deal


St Mirren Football Club is thrilled to announce that Alex Gogic has agreed a new three-year-deal to extend his stay at Saints.

The Cypriot defender’s contract was set to expire this summer, but he has now agreed a new contract that will see him remain at the club until summer 2027.

Alex has been a huge fans’ favourite since initially joining the club on loan from Hibernian in January 2022 before signing a permanent deal in August of that year.

Capped 29 times by Cyprus, Alex made a scoring debut for Saints in a 1-1 draw against Motherwell in February 2022. He has since made 90 appearances for the Buddies and has scored seven goals, the most recent of which came in Saturday’s important win against Dundee.

His performances at centre-half have earned him many plaudits this season as Saints push for a European place for the first time since 1987.

Speaking to stmirren.com, Alex said: "I'm very happy. 

"We've been talking for a while but I wanted to focus on the games, but after Saturday I'm happy that it's done. 

I'm probably playing the best football I have ever played. Big credit to the gaffer playing me at centre-back. I always fight against it but I'm happy I've had a great season and I think it's a big help from the players and all of the staff.

"From the first day I joined, the love I got, not only from the players and staff, but from the fans made it an easy decision. They [the fans] have been amazing to me from the first day.

I want to thank all my teammates for making this decision easy, the gaffer, all the staff and Jim Gillespie as well."

Manager Stephen Robinson was delighted to get the deal confirmed and added: "Goga has been exceptional this season and the season previously.

"He’s like two players in one because he can play in numerous positions. He’s excelled in the middle of a back three and we know we can put him in midfield in certain occasions in games.

It’s something we’ve been speaking about for a long time. He’s vital in terms of building the club and taking it forward. It’s a statement of intent from us going forward.

"He’s certainly had other options both in Scotland and England, but he chose to stay here. He’s very happy here, his family are very happy here and he knows the group of boys we’ve got are going to keep improving. It shows he is enjoying his football.

We’ve gone all out to ensure he stays. We were always quietly confident in the background as we knew he and his family were happy and we’re just delighted to get it over the line now."
