After an unlucky start with injuries, the midfielder has played in the last five games, starting the last three.
His new deal takes him up to the end of May an speaking to MFC TV, Lee said: “It’s good news for me I’m delighted to stay and I think everyone knows that.
“When I’ve been fit and eligible to play I’ve tried to help the team as much as I can and I’ve worked hard to renew my contract here.
[pullquote]“I just hope to stay as fit as I can now for the rest of the season and play as many games as possible and continue to help the team.[/pullquote]
“We’ve started to get some good results together lately and hopefully that can continue now.”
With Rangers up next, but with a ban to serve first, Lee is making sure to focus on keeping himself match fit.
He said: “I know I’m suspended now for a couple of games of course but I’m looking forward to that being over with and getting back in to the team.
“It’s frustrating really because I feel like I was just getting back up to match fitness and it can take a few weeks to get there but I was feeling good.”
