About Anthony McDonald

We talk to Anthony about his youth, being born in Cyprus before moving to Scotland a few months old and his childhood Celtic fandom.

The striker started at Livingston before joining Hearts where he stayed for 8 years. He graduated to the first team in 2017 and also had loan deals with Inverness CT and Dunfermline Athletic. Earlier this year he signed for Spanish Segunda Division B side Cordoba. Injury has prevented him making his debut and we discuss the impact of this on Anthony as well as his reasons for moving abroad.
