A- League in­ter­est low for Soc­ceroos striker

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

SCOTT McDon­ald’s A- League home­com­ing is off the cards with a lack of in­ter­est forc­ing the for­mer Soc­ceroos striker to stay put in Scot­land.

McDon­ald ( right) signed a one- sea­son deal with sec­ond- tier out­fit Dundee United.

The 33- year- old was keen to re­turn to Aus­tralia to fix his rep­u­ta­tion among lo­cal fans af­ter not scor­ing a sin­gle goal in his 26- cap in­ter­na­tional ca­reer but no A- League of­fers were forth­com­ing.

West­ern Syd­ney showed strong in­ter­est in McDon­ald dur­ing the Jan­uary win­dow but the move was scup­pered when his club at the time, Mother­well, de­manded a trans­fer fee.
