Celtic's McDonald to cheer on Aussie cricketers against Scotland

Celtic and Socceroo striker Scott McDonald will be throwing his support behind the Australian cricket team when they face Scotland in Edinburgh on Friday.

McDonald, like most Australians, is a keen cricket fan and has endured a rough week of ribbing from many in the Celtic Park dressing room after Australia's Ashes loss.

But he will be right behind the Aussies on their visit to Edinburgh and will be joined by many thousands of Australians who work in Scotland.
