Socceroo McKay released by Chinese club

Matt McKay has been released by his Chinese club Changchun Yatai and says he will consider a move back to the A-League to get regular game time ahead of the Socceroos' World Cup campaign.

The 30-year-old has joined skipper Lucas Neill as one of the Socceroos' players left clubless just a year out from Brazil.

Free agent McKay, who captained Brisbane to their first A-League championship in 2010-11, has been heavily linked to a return to the Roar after mutually agreeing with the club to terminate his contract just six months in.

"In think this is the best move for me personally and the club going forward," he said.

"I'm delighted to leave. I've been struggling to live there it's been a difficult league.

"But I've been playing and I've been doing well and the club were happy to keep me but I just felt it wasn't helping my game and I'm free now and I can do what I want."

McKay, who has been a regular starter in coach Holger Osieck's sides and playing in all four World Cup qualifiers in June, says ensuring his Socceroos spot is his top priority.

"The national team is obviously my first priority and I will find a club that will help me develop as a player," he said.

"Club-wise I'm a free agent now so anywhere's possible. I'll work and find the best option for me.

"I was playing regularly and wherever I go that's a priority."

McKay, who had a stint with Scottish club Rangers and in Korea since leaving the Roar in 2011, played week-in, week-out out as a midfielder at Changchun but says the Chinese Super League didn't afford him the exposure the A-League did.

"The A-League is such a good competition. I know, I've been there, I've played my six seasons," he said.

"It's a competition where everyone sees you. You're under pressure.

"In Asia, I've been in China and Korea, no one watches those games. I'm playing every week but no one knows how I'm going, what positions I'm playing or how I'm doing.

"There's a lot of pressure in the A-League, it's a great competition, and I've always had a lot of time for the A-League.

"I'm open to seeing what's best now, be that overseas or in Australia. I'll wait and see."
