Big coup as Ross returns to Steelmen
Striker Ross Mccormack has completed a sensational return to Motherwell.
The 32-year-old, who spent two years at Fir Park between 2006 and 2008, has joined on a five-month loan deal from Aston Villa.
After a long spell south of the border which saw him become the all- time top scorer in the Championship, Mccormack has returned to Scotland and is looking forward to making his mark on the pitch again in claret and amber.
He said: “I am delighted to be back. Although I was a youth player at Rangers, got a good education there and played some first-team games, I feel like this was the club that helped launch my career and I will be forever grateful for that.
“I’ve had a frustrating few years and I am desperate to just get back on the pitch again and do what I do.
“I want to put something back in to Motherwell for what they did for me all those years ago. My aim is to come in and score goals, help the team and help develop some of the younger talent.”
Mccormack played for Cardiff City, Leeds, Fulham, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest during his time in the Championship.
He then went on loan to Melbourne City, where he notched 14 goals in 14 starts.
He returned to Australia, again on loan, to play for Central Coast Mariner, where he turned out alongside sprint legend Usain Bolt.
Boss Stephen Robinson added: “We are delighted to get a player of Ross’ quality at the club.
“This is a player who has earned over £ 25 million in transfer fees, is the alltime top scorer in the Championship and is experienced at international level.”
