Veteran Gary Neville has been rewarded for his recent performances and overall commitment to Manchester United with a new one-year contract extension.

Neville's deal was due to expire this summer and there were suggestions that the 35-year-old would retire at the end of the season.

"We have agreed a contract with Gary Neville for another year and it is something we have been working on for a couple of weeks," said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

"We are delighted with that and we think he deserves it for his contribution at the club. He has been fantastic.

"I have said time and time about certain players, they make careers out of determination and will to do it and Gary has been one of those players.

"The amazing thing about Gary is that he has come back from a serious injury in his thirties.

"We worried about him when he was out for so long. When you get an injury like that in your thirties, it must be a worry and a concern.

"We knew he was putting everything into it, but you don’t really have to worry about a player like Gary Neville because his commitment and endeavour to get back is so strong. We leave it to him because he is more determined than any of us.

"But to get to the level he is playing at today is astonishing. The man is doing it because of his determination and drive within himself not to give in. It’s a tremendous asset to have."

The defender, who will soon reach 600 appearances for the club, joins his fellow old stagers Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs in committing themselves to the club until the end of next season.
