Ex-Aston Villa flop Ross McCormack – who cost £25m in transfer fees in career – joins non-league Aldershot Town
EX-ASTON Villa flop Ross McCormack - who accumulated £25million in transfer fees through his career - has joined non-league Aldershot Town.
The surprise move by the Scottish striker sees him on a one-year contract and back in England for first time in over three years.3It all began to go wrong for McCormack when he joined Aston Villa
It also marks the latest twist for the nomadic forward who was a deadly striker at Championship level only four years ago.
The 34-year-old said: "It wasn't a hard decision to make to be honest (on joining the club), but now is the right time to come back and get going again in England."
His career began in Scotland where he joined fairly short spells with Rangers and Motherwell.
It was only when McCormack arrived in England did his sharpshooting skills really take off.
He scored 38 goals in 89 appearances for Cardiff between 2008-10.
In four years at Leeds, he then got 53 goals in 144 games.
The striker moved to Fulham for a then-Championship record fee of £11million and continued his hot form between 2014-2016.3The striker scored 53 goals at Elland Road
He scored 38 goals at Craven Cottage in 89 appearances.
It all began to go downhill when the frontman joined Aston Villa in a £12million move.
Not only did he struggle to find the net, the Scot also became the centre of manager's Steve Bruce's ire.
Bruce publicly criticised the player's fitness and slammed him for missing a training session because the electronic gates outside of his house would not open.
A frustrated Bruce told the press in 2017: "The latest excuse was that his gates had stuck but he couldn't jump over a fence that was four feet six inches high."
After hitting the net only three times in 20 appearances, he went out on loan to Australia.
First he joined Melbourne City and then the Central Coast mariners.Most read in FootballRIP REGDerby legend Reg Harrison who was oldest living FA Cup winner passes away aged 97HOLD ON, JADONMan Utd to launch last-minute Sancho bid and are confident of cut-price dealPicturedROYAL BALEInside luxury jet Bale used to travel to London - a month after Queen flew in itSPANISH GOLDBale's got a golf course, bar and fleet of supercars after 7 years at RealExclusiveHEART OF STONESEngland ace John Stones’ ex 'taunted' as he takes new love to showdownExclusiveBEEHIND THE WHEELVan de Beek celebrates Man Utd move with £150k swanky new Range Rover 3McCormack's £11m move to Fulham was a Championship record at the time
