JUST IN: Steve Evans completes ninth signing of the summer

Steve Evans has signed winger Alex MacDonald for the third time, making him Rotherham United’s ninth signing in a busy transfer window.

The 34-year-old from Warrington previously played for Evans at Gillingham and Stevenage, and his contract expires at the end of the month.

The Millers squad has undergone a complete overhaul following relegation to League One and the appointment of manager Evans for a second spell at the club.

MacDonald has played Europa League football on loan at Falkirk from first club Burnley, and has represented England and Scotland at youth level.

He also has coaching experience, having assisted interim manager Steve Lovell when Evans was sacked by Gillingham in January 2022. Evans returned to Stevenage in March and signed MacDonald in the following transfer window.

He has also played for Burton Albion, Oxford United and Mansfield Town, and also had two loans at Plymouth Argyle as a Burnley player in 2012.


Like Evans’ other eight signings, Jonson Clarke-Harris, Joe Powell, Joe Rafferty, Liam Kelly, Sean Raggett, Reece James, Zak Jules and Shaun McWilliams, MacDonald arrives on a free transfer.
