Club Statement: Scott McDonald

Football Federation Australia (FFA) have today confirmed that Scott McDonald has been medically approved to re-join the Brisbane Roar playing squad from today following investigations over the past 24 hours between FFA, the Club and Optus Sport.

In reaching this decision, medical personnel considered the hygiene and social distancing protocols followed by the Club, Scott, a private transport operator and Optus Sport.  

McDonald has also returned a negative result for a COVID-19 PCR swab test that he undertook yesterday.

"Our Hyundai A-League squad, including Scott McDonald, our coaches and staff have always and will continue to follow the medical protocols under the Return To Training and Competition Matches policies in a COVID Environment framework," Brisbane Roar CEO David Pourre said.

"Scott is and continues to be an outstanding leader in our Club. Our attention remains on our next fixture and our Hyundai A-League finals campaign."
