McDonald grateful to Celtic management over new deal

The Australia international signed the deal this morning and is holding a media conference today to confirm the new agreement.

McDonald was only a year into his previous four-year contract, but such was his exploits last season, the club agreed to rip that up and make the striker a new five-year offer.

The player's agent, Lou Sticca, told "It's a great credit to Scott and Celtic that this new agreement has been found.

"Celtic's decision to hand Scott a new contract is fantastic reward for his efforts last season - and also acknowledgement from the club of how much they think of him. We're all delighted."

Meanwhile, McDonald also told "I'm very, very pleased.

"It's been an incredible year for me personally and to cap it off with a championship medal and this new contract is something that is simply beyond my dreams.

"I am very grateful to the club and particularly Mr Peter Lawwell, who has been very supportive of me since I arrived at Celtic Park from Motherwell last year.

"The management and treatment I've received at Celtic is first class and just makes me more determined to repay the faith they have shown in me."
