Si Ferry Meets…Scott McDonald Ep 1 – Growing up a Celtic fan, Southampton & ‘Mental’ Motherwell Dressing Room


In our first of five instalments with one of Scottish Football’s most lethal strikers, Scott chats with Simon on his footballing upbringing in Australia which saw him catch the bug of Celtic early on through his Scottish family lineage.

He delves into first moving over to the UK and winning a contract with Southampton where he would play with the likes of Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier and eventually be managed and let go by his future Celtic manager Gordon Strachan.

This departure then leads to his move to Motherwell, where the boys have a laugh about the colourful characters that he shared a dressing room with and the chaotic culture that was present under manager Terry Butcher at the time.
