Dundee United have signed former Celtic star Scott McDonald.
The international striker was out of contract after parting company with Motherwell in the summer and is understood to have had a number of offers from Scotland and down south.
McDonald, who has 26 caps for Australia, said: “I am delighted to sign for United. I want to help this club secure promotion into the Premiership. After I came up and looked around St Andrews and spoke to the manager, it was an easy decision.
“I had options in the Ladbrokes Premiership and down south, but I believe that I can achieve success here. Being successful and enjoying my football is important to me and that means winning the Ladbrokes Championship this season is the aim.”
Manager Ray McKinnon said: “This is a great signing for us. Scott is an experienced player who has played at the top level. His ability will enhance the team and his personality will impact in the dressing room also.
“He adds to our attacking options and the desire he showed to come to United ahead of other options tells me everything about his character. He is a winner and wants to help us win the title this season”.
