FORMER Celtic striker Scott McDonald has agreed a one-year deal with Dundee United.
The 33-year-old Australian frontman left Motherwell at the end of last season and insisted he rejected other offers to join the Tannadice outfit.
McDonald, who spent two and a half years at the Hoops and netted 51 goals in 88 league games, made almost 200 appearances in two spells at Fir Park.
He 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 and spoke to the manager, it was an easy decision.
“I had options in the Premiership and down south, but I believe that I can achieve success here.”
United boss 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”.
