Wishaw Press - - THE BACK PAGE -

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.”
