Sheffield Wednesday winger Ross Wallace has expressed his delight at signing a contract extension at Hillsborough..

The former Celtic, Sunderland and Burnley man joined the Owls last summer and played a pivotal role in helping the team into the Play-Off final at Wembley.

Wallace scored six goals in 48 appearances for Wednesday last season but most of them were memorable.

The 31 year old was among the scorers in that famous Capital One Cup victory over Arsenal at Hillsborough and he rifled home one of the Owls' goals of the season in victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

And it was Wallace's two goals, one in each leg, in the Play-Off semi final against Brighton which helped secure that date in the capital where Wednesday would eventually lose 1-0 to Hull City.

After the deal was announced, Wallace said: "I'm delighted. I had a fantastic year last year and to get an extension I'm delighted."

Wallace added: "The first year I was looking to come and see how things went. We had a great season last season apart from the disappointment right at the end. I had some special moments for myself personally but overall the way the team played all season, I loved every minute of it with a great bunch of players and working under Carlos and the staff. Hopefully we can have the same kind of success this season."
