McDonald confirms Nakamura's Celtic exit

Socceroos striker Scott McDonald has confirmed that his Celtic teammate will not be returning to the club next season. McDonald is currently in Melbourne for tomorrow night's World Cup qualifying 'dead rubber' against Japan and although Nakamura is not playing, he said he had been on contact with him.

"I spoke to Nakamura three days ago when he told me, that's it, as far as Celtic is concerned," McDonald said.

"He's decided to leave because he's homesick and he wants to return to Japan to play for his hometown team Yokohama.

"He didn't mention any other clubs but he's not going back to Celtic."
