The Scotland international is coming to the end of his current deal and he is waiting to see if he will be offered an extension.
McNamara admitted he was disappointed only to receive a one-year extension the last time he had contract talks and that he would like to earn a deal which would see him end his career at Parkhead.
"To be honest it was a little bit disappointing only to get a year the last time," said McNamara.
"I hadn't played that much before the deal was done and maybe they thought they would just give me a year to see if I could do it again this season without committing themselves to too long a contract.
"If they offered me something longer this time of course I'd be happy to take it.
"I'd like to finish my career here but I have just turned 31 and it is not as if I am over the hill yet.
"I've still got a good contract in me."
