SCOTT McDonald could make a surprise exit from Millwall in the coming days.

NewsAtDen understands that the Australian has been discussing his future with manager Ian Holloway and the Lions' hierarchy in the past 48 hours.

McDonald has been almost ever-present in the side this season but was an unused substitute during last Saturday's defeat to Ipswich.

The former Middlesbrough and Celtic striker is out-of-contract in the summer.

Five players have left Millwall already this month.

Paul Robinson, Josh Wright and Jermaine Easter cancelled their contracts, while Scott Malone and Matthew Briggs joined Cardiff and Colchester respectively.

    To be fair, his attitude on the pitch has been very good, battled hard and never stopped running. I personally think he will be missed.

      @glyngo: It's a fair assumption that anyone getting their contract cancelled is one of the trouble makers, so if he goes, good riddance!

          @mfclions: his was different, he wasn't getting in the team, same with Robbo, whereas there appears a role for Mcdonald, so either he is trouble, or Ollie doesn't want to hold onto any player that won't commit their future to the club & he won't sign a new contract, in which case f**k him!

            @coldblowlane87: You're making a lot of assumptions there Coldblow, I can't prove you are wrong but I can comment on his performances on the pitch, and they have been very good. It was only a few weeks ago when IH said taking McD off changed the game and lost it for us. I can't imagine he is going with IH's blessing.

            @glyngo: it might just be that holloway don't rate him, can't imagine he's a problem or he wouldn't have played so many games . Personally I think he's a trier but just not effective enough but no one can have a go about his work rate .

      @glyngo:
      One of our better players IMO. Holloway should be the one discussing his future.

      @glyngo: McDonald would probably fulfil his full potential if he was ever played as part of a front two with a big physical like Hanson who can hold up the ball as his partner. Looking at some of his goals for Celtic that's how it was and his small enough to be an awkward 'fox in the box' type of player.

      I see we have Jordan Archer playing for us against QPR yesterday, ex-Tottenham keeper could very well be the answer to adding some competition for that position. Progress being made, we get there!
