New Motherwell boss Mark McGhee says the quality of his squad has surprised him.
"To be honest, I wasn't quite prepared for the number of good players we seem to have at the club," said McGhee.
"I won't really be sure of the standard of squad I have until I see them in competitive action. Although I've been impressed by what I've seen, nothing that's gone before really counts until you get started in earnest."
"I haven't seen much of Scott McDonald, but he must be a very good player if he's better than McCormack," he said.
"Ross suffered from a virus for much of last year, but he's back to full health and fitness now. He has lost weight and he looks a proper player, better than most I have seen in the Championship in England. I firmly believe he'll show this season how good he is."
