Hatters defender Steve McNulty admitted that manager John Still was one of the main reasons behind his decision to commit his future to the club.
The 29-year-old centre-half was signed by previous manager Paul Buckle but it’s the new boss’s impact that led him to signing a two-year contract at Kenilworth Road on Monday.
“John’s said he wanted to keep me and once he said that I knew I wanted to stay,” McNulty told Hatters Player minutes after the ink dried on his new deal.
“The manager said from the outset he wanted me here so I didn’t speak to any other clubs. When he told me that it was a case of getting the deal done and signing the contract.
“John’s been great and he’s steadied the ship because we were on a bad run of form when he first came in.
“He’s got a bit of aura about him. Every time he speaks you listen carefully because he talks a lot sense. I like that, and that’s why I want to work under him and help bring success to this football club.”
McNulty tasted success with Fleetwood Town last season, skippering the Cod Army to the Blue Square Bet Premier title.
And that’s something the Liverpudlian wants to achieve next year at Kenilworth Road.
“When I came here I thought we were going to win the league, and I 100 per cent thought we’d get in the Play-Offs at the very least,” said McNulty.
“That didn’t happen so we need to knuckle down and push for promotion next year.”
