Midfielder weighing up options.
Fresh from Australia’s narrow 4-3 defeat to China midfielder Matt Mckay is looking for a new challenge.
The former Rangers man left Chinese Super League club Changchun Yatai last week and is weighing up his options for his next move.
A trip back to Australia could be high on his list, the 30-year-old having already confirmed interest from an A-League club.
Speaking after Sunday’s match, he said: “I didn’t want to think about my club stuff during this tournament. Now I can head back to China, pack up my things and head back to Australia to decide my future.
“I’ve already got a bit of interest but I’ll wait and make the right choice for myself. I want to play the national team, I want to go to the World Cup, so that decision will be based on that.
“My club future will sort itself out. I’m not worried about that. I’ll found a good club, I’ll play and I’ll enjoy my football again. I think that’s the most important thing.”
Mckay also commented on the Socceroos bottom of the group performance in the East Asian Cup: “I thought the boys, considering most of them are coming from the A-League off-season, they’ve done themselves really proud,”.
“They can take a lot of pride in their work-rate and also in their performance.At times we played some good stuff but then we ran out of legs. International football is tough and they’re learning that.”
