The English goalkeeper joined Scottish club Hibernian after spending eight years in north London without a single first-team appearance.
Macey has started every game for Hibs this season, a stat which he feels vindicates his decision to leave the Gunners.
"It's not always as easy as that at a big club. There are responsibilities for the manager to protect, in terms of players picking up injuries at the top level.
"One thing I'd say is that every summer, I always looked to go and play football, whether it was on loan or to leave Arsenal. For whatever reason it didn't happen. I'm just lucky that when I did decide to make the jump, it worked out really well at Hibs."
