Alex Delighted To Return

BURNLEY forward Alex MacDonald is delighted to be returning to Argyle.

The 22-year-old, speaking exclusively to the club's official website after agreeing an emergency loan deal, said; "When I spoke to the manager about coming back down, I didn't hesitate.

"It's a pleasure to be here again."

Macca played against the Pilgrims in Tuesday's Capital One Cup tie at Turf Moor before travelling down to Home Park on deadline day to complete his move that will see him stay at Home Park until, initially, October 6.

"It's been a whirlwind few days," he said, "but I'm happy it's done and I'm back down here.

"I'm looking forward to getting back on the pitch here.

"I was having a good laugh with the lads on the pitch on Tuesday, but I didn't see it as playing against my old mates.

"I was just doing my job for Burnley."

Macca played 18 times for the Greens last season, scoring four goals, and proved to be a popular member of the squad with team-mates and fans alike.

"I'm here to help out," he said, "and, however long I stay for, I hope I'll be a success again.

"Last year was good. I enjoyed my time down here. It's a lovely place and a great club with great fans and a good manager."

Scottish Under-21 international Alex joined us in February this year and made his debut in the home match with Southend United, when he came off the substitutes' bench and scored to secure a dramatic 2-2 draw.

Virtually an ever-present from then until the end of the season, Macca scored vital goals at Accrington Stanley and, probably most important of all, the winner in April's tense 1-0 home victory over Aldershot.

The full exclusive interview with Macca will appear on Argyle Player shortly.
