The 29-year-old had been at the Riverside Stadium for three and a half years, scoring 40 goals in 124 appearances, following his big-money transfer from Celtic.

McDonald 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.

The Australian starred for the Steelmen, netting 47 goals in only 125 appearances, including two goals in the final two minutes as Motherwell wrecked Celtic's 2004/2005 title hopes on the final day.

McDonald's double handed the league silverware to Old Firm rivals Rangers but the Hoops paid £700,000 for the player's services in July 2007.

McDonald scored in a 1-1 draw with Spartak Moscow in a Champions League third qualifying round tie on his debut before scoring 64 goals in total in 127 appearances before his move to Middlesbrough.

McDonald has appeared 26 times for his country, but not since a substitute introduction in a 3-1 friendly defeat by Scotland last August, and becomes Steve Lomas' sixth summer signing since taking over the reins at The Den.

Fellow forward Steve Morison, Stephen Bywater, Jermaine Easter, Lee Martin, Richard Chaplow and Nicky Bailey have all joined the Lions in the off season.

Northern Irishman Lomas said: "I've watched Scott throughout his career and he has a proven track record, scoring at better than one in three games over a long period.

"He works hard for the team, links play well and can operate in different formations.

"The great thing from our point of view is that he's hungry to do well. He's got his eye on next summer's World Cup for Australia and knows that to get into the squad he needs to be scoring goals for Millwall."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
