Former Socceroo Scott McDonald will play for a fourth Scottish club after signing a short-term deal with Championship strugglers Partick Thistle.

The veteran striker has been a prolific goalscorer with Motherwell, Celtic and Dundee United throughout the course of his career, and will add experience and competition to the attacking options within Gary Caldwell's Thistle squad.

BBC Scotland pundit McDonald hasn't played since leaving Dundee United in the summer, but scored 16 goals in 42 games last term.

The veteran striker played with Partick manager Gary Caldwell at Celtic.

"I'm absolutely buzzing about it. It's been underlying for a while," McDonald said.

"Day to day I still treat every day as if I'm playing and that says a lot of where my mind was at.

"People will have question marks. I don't mind that, it's good."

He joins a Thistle side who sit bottom of the Championship, having been relegated from the top flight last May.

The 35-year-old who played 26 times without scoring for the Socceroos between 2006-2012 will wear number 10 for the Jags.
