Latics fans will no longer be seeing FA Cup hero Gary McDonald at Boundary Park as he exits with 2 others. The hero of this years giant killing at Goodison Park has decided it would be in his best interests to join Aberdeen when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The decision to leave Oldham has been met with appreciation from Latics as over the past few years players have dragged out contract negotiations before leaving which resulted in rash signings. Best of luck to Gary Mac, you’ll be in Latics history for a long time to come after that goal.

The other 2 players leaving are youth players Ashley Kelly and Mike Pearson who have failed to make the extra push to gain a contract, best of luck to both youngsters in finding a new club.
