Steve lands international striker McDonald

Millwall are delighted to announce that striker Scott McDonald has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the club after his contract with Middlesbrough was terminated by mutual consent.

The 29-year-old has been at the Riverside Stadium for three and a half years, scoring 40 goals in 124 appearances.

The Australian international began his career as a trainee at Southampton and had loan spells with Huddersfield and Bournemouth before moving north of the border to join Motherwell in January 2004. It was there McDonald really made his name, notching 47 goals in only 125 appearances.

His form at Fir Park attracted the attention of Old Firm giants Celtic who paid £700,000 for his services in July 2007.

McDonald's impact was immediate as he scored in a 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow in a Champions League Third Qualifying Round tie days before another goal in the SPL against St Mirren, and went on to notch 64 goals in just 127 appearances before his move to Middlesbrough.

McDonald, who has appeared 26 times for his country, becomes Steve Lomas' sixth summer signing and could get his first taste of Lions action in Saturday's testimonial game against Rayo Vallecano at The Den. He will wear shirt number 27 at The Den.
