Macca Relishing New Challenge

Former Wednesday striker Steve Maclean has admitted he'll miss life at Hillsborough but is looking forward to a new challenge in helping new club Cardiff City to promotion.

The Scot left the blue and white of Wednesday for the blue and white of the Bluebirds on Friday evening after failing to agree new terms on a deal at Hillsborough.

And Macca has paid tribute to the staff and the fans at S6, who helped him enjoy the best three years in his career so far.

'I have a lot of people to thank such as all the managers I worked under - Chris Turner brought me in, then Paul Sturrock and Brian Laws. And obviously I have to thank the fans. They've been different class with me - probably the best I've worked under - and I'll miss them dearly,' Maclean told the official SWFC website.

'I'm sad to be going but it's the start of a new challenge which I'm looking forward to. It has been a good three years for me - the best of my career so far.'

But the Owls joint top scorer last term is already looking ahead to try and help his new club achieve promotion next term, and is already building up their hopes ahead of the new season.

Referring to the signings of both himself and Gavin Rae at Ninian Park, Maclean told the South Wales Echo: 'Both of us are excited about our future with Cardiff City. The manager, Dave Jones, has convinced us we will be right up there challenging for promotion.

'I know I can score goals at Coca-Cola Championship level. I have proved that with Sheffield Wednesday. When I started games I scored goals regularly.'
