Scott McDonald and Millwall agree to terminate contract

SCOTT McDonald has left Millwall after reaching an agreement to cancel his contract at The Den by mutual consent.

McDonald was told at the start of the week that he wasn't in Ian Holloway's plans for the second half of the season and talks have been ongoing since to resolve his future.

And it has been decided that, in the interest of both parties, McDonald and the club should go their separate ways.

The news will come as a surprise to Lions fans, who have seen the Australian play more minutes than any other outfield player so far this campaign.

The 31 year-old, signed two summers ago by ex-manager Steve Lomas, scored six goals in 60 Millwall appearances and could now move to a club overseas.

McDonald told the club's official site: "I'd like to thank everyone at Millwall and in particular the fans for all their support.

"I had some memorable moments here, not least scoring the winner at Charlton last season, which was certainly a good feeling.

"I would like to wish the manager and the lads the very best for the rest of the season and I'll certainly be hoping they can move up the table and stay in the Championship."

      @lionindirtyyorkyland: there is no saving to Millwall or free up wages we have just paid up his contract in full as with all the other players recently they can then sign for other clubs with a shed load of cash in the bank but it gets them out of the Club

        @robo:
        Cannot be the case as we would definitely be rid of Hoyte by now?
        I'm shocked by this, we have completely wasted an opportunity to use a player with his quality, bad move if you ask me, can't imagine 6 months of savings can be that much with pay off negotiated?
        I do hope we will now try to sign a few players good enough to inspire us fans as wall need all the support we can get!
        Feels like a league 1 move to me, not looking good but there's still such a long way to go?

        @robo: By mutual consent might mean that they just go and can look for another club without having problems with fees etc, and may not mean we pay the contract up in full. You have no idea what the terms were, unless you were part of the negotiating team, probably not!!

    Frees up big wages and shows the ruthless streak to a few of the trouble makers that remain, should never have signed him on the wages he was on.

      @nocalves: I agree, were better getting the players who have no future here out the door. Better to have a squad who have a future here then a squad of players waiting for there P45's. It doesn't matter if we have to pay up contracts, it's worth that to get a better spirit in the dressing room.

      @lionindirtyyorkyland: That was the problem he was on strikers money but couldn't score, we were paying for past reputations as usual and he was past his best by date. He did ok in MF and put in a shift but he was not a MF so we were paying a premium price for someone who was not producing and was not as good in his new position as what we could get for similar wages so thanks Scott and good luck.

        @MFC Lion:soon to be starting training again, was the last thing I heard. As he's had a reoccurring injury on his calf, they're being very cautious with letting him come back to full training.
        Will be interesting to see what MFC does with him.. He's a useful player when fit.. USELESS when not, which is most of the time! With the way things are, I don't think we can justify having on the books..
        Carlos Edwards is another question mark... AGE is the biggest issue with him.... Such a shame both are injured. Both have/had a lot to offer and both 'were' captain material IMO.
        P.s. Replace an UNFIT midfield enforcer with a FIT one! Done! Okeefe or Rudy would be good....

    finances - tim cahill (say) £50k a week ,for10 weeks - 10 home games - £25 a seat would mean an average of 2,000 extra punters a game to break even - that would easily happen - a big signing could be made to work financially - whn yo consider we have just saved £150,000 till end of season with mac then it all is feasible

    IMO he wasnt creative, he could hold the ball up, twist, turn, then pass a safe ball, but i dont think he was comfortable in that position, and to be fair he worked hard in every game i saw him in! his natural position would have been alongside the Hoff or Fuller but thats not holloways style of play. Plus he isnt a shrinking violet, and i'm sure he let holloway and the assistant know.

    Personally I thought he was one of the better players this season (but there's not that many that have stood out). With him going and he must have been on around £15k a week that will be one big saving for the club, that hopefully they will invest on younger and better players. Look back over the last couple of weeks with the players that have gone I don't see it hampering our chances of staying up. The cull is well under way, but still the biggest wage thief is there. When is Hoyte going to be shown the door!!

    For me, the point is that wherever ho goes it will be a downward step from the Championship. Just like all the others that have gone or soon will be he wasn't good enough. Incredible that we've got so many players who aren't good enough at this level. Good to see an enema being adminstered to remove all the waste.

    I was a fan of McD and thought he always gave his all, as well as being one of the most technically gifted players. Not a lot of goals but he was a good attacking midfielder. this does open up a chance for Fabrini or Upson to take that role.

    I doubt he is trying to leave us skint he had already jogged on 70% of the players everyone has been moaning about he didn't have to but he is thinking long term... Disagree if you want but the state were in isn't holloways fault we have been here now for 3 seasons the lads at the end of last season worked hard and pulled the mirical survival off I would have give them all a chance this season aswell. At least now he has seen it all he seen the players in a fight he seen them on a high and on a low so now he knows who he wants and is making it clear to them and us. Look at the big picture he is trying to build a better millwall for the future if if you negative haters can see it then your blind remember before us he had a gleaming reputation in this league stated clearly by the desire of us before we got him so as much as you think he is doing this on purpose he isn't if he fails with us AND WALKS AWAY he got no chance getting taken serious if we do go down this year and that's IF I bet you dam straight he will get us back up straight away he wants us to become a formidable force and I'm gonna back him until we are !! And so should ALL OF YOU !!

      @cmj23: I see what you're saying about his credibility and wanting to build for the future but on the other hand, you have to admit that some his decisions have been a little bit unfathomable. It's all very well having a vision but if he can't achieve it with our budget and our squad, with seemingly no plan b, is he still the right man for the job. Unless this major clearout and rebuild comes off, I am inclined to believe he's not.

      Holloway is not a very good manager. Look at Eddie Howe at Bournemouth for example and you will see why. He has total control of all football matters at his club and they are playing an attractive and effective style of play and sit top of the league. IH on the other hand has the same level of control yet 'his' club are staring relegation in the face. McDonald going, Fred on loan, playing Dunne at CB and offering Forde a long extended contract etc.. proves he is not the man for the job. Get someone decent in soon or we face Championship exile for a very long time. NOLU

    The team had needed major surgery for about four years and IH was right to give players the chance but time has come to cut out the the players that are not up to it at least McDonald knew his time of playing every week was up and he has a desire to play every week and it frees some more of the wage budget up as mangers all make mistakes yes we need a 20 a season striker and experienced cb and let the youngsters have their chance a blend of youth and experience at least IH is giving youth a chance unlike KJ so we need to support the team through thick and thin. Because no one likes us we don't care.

    Personally I thought he alright and worked for his wages. In the summer ollie changed his position which he was reluctant to do but he done it and knuckled down with no fuss. Shame the rest of em didn't and if we're all honest he didn't exactly have any decent players around him especially up top.
    I hope ollie can now use the funds it'll free up to good effect.
    Thought we had worse that needed shifting a lot sooner than McD oh well
    Onwards and upwards.

    Good. On way too much money, makes space for new blood. Glimpses of quality but very seldom seen. Next out Chaplow, Woolford, Shittu, Bailey, Hoyte, Dunne, Beevers. Need to give youth a chance, v glad about Sid Nelson who looks like he will be a Millwall legend and knows what the club is all about. Onyedinma will be quality for us as well. Need a CB, midfield general and a striker. In Ollie I trust.

Highly rated at Maidstone. Wonder if pavey had any influence. They're certainly doing something right down there might be worth paying them as a feeder club there's an awful lot of interest in their players the past couple yrs.

      @kell: I live at Maidstone, and they certainly do have some good prospects. Would 100% say Millwall should do some kind of feeder agreement with them.

    f*** me I see a lot of bad feelings towards IH on here - he's got rid of McDonald because he's not a good footballer and was one of the top earners! Seems holloway is damned if he does damned if he don't! Get behind the manager he isn't going anywhere unlike scott McDonald!

    Thanks that sounds like a great idea we should be using local teams and players more

    Well at least we are finding something to smile about, we gotta make our own entertainment at the moment, our team can't seem to do it for us.

    Watch Man Utd last night and the reason they didn't score was they held the ball too long in midfield , this was Macs big problem held the ball too long allowing defenders to set, not allowing Gregory to get on the end of a fast pass. We won't miss him......honest.

    @markbrowns agree with Forde getting out as well but didn't want to put him down as we haven't got another keeper. Maybe Wes Forderingham @swindon?

    Not worth the wages. Worked hard but without enough product. Frees up wages and as importantly, a key role, better filled by others.

    Chelsea losing 4-2 with 11 players on the pitch makes me feel a whole lot better about our defeat to Bradford. They are obviously a good side.

      @junkmale: clearly and we also managed to hold them to a draw at home! Unlike some.

          @Jim28: it doesn't make any difference to our current problems in the league I agree.

          But made me smile watching the game on MOTD. One of many cupsets on sat.

    Look how well organised Bradford, Middlesborough and even Cambridge are at the back compared to the shambles our defence are at the moment. The difference in the goal keepers and the opportunities created for their strikers. Whose responsible? The players, the coaches or the manager or a combination of all three?

    Creates a funny taste in the mouth but I want to congratulate Bradford on their great result. This is what the FA Cup is all about. Well done to Bradford.

    Takes me back to that night at Highbury, 'Kennedy advances on the goal, he shoots.....,.,'

    Will we see the Lions do that ever again?

    Average goal ratio of one in ten for a player that spends most of his time in the final third! I'd say that pretty poor! Not really fussed about this one at all. I say balls to him. Look to lower leagues and bring in a hungry youngster that fits in well with the youth boys. I have to admit, Im loving this mass cull! It will soon be a new wall full of young hungry lads that give their all for the shirt. Just what we have all been waiting for! Bring it on! Chaplow, Bailey, Hoyte, Forde, Shittu and Dunne next please Ollie. Keep Sid as Captain and Williams vice. COYL!
