McKay back in as Brisbane Roar captain

Matt McKay’s record as Brisbane Roar captain reads one full season in charge, one premiership and one historic Grand Final win.

The A-League champions will be hoping for a return to similar success after appointing the foundation player skipper for a second time, while also extending his contract for a further two seasons.

McKay lifted Brisbane’s first ever trophies under Ange Postecoglou back in 2011 and, after re-joining the club last year following spells in Scotland, Korea and China, has now regained the armband.

The Socceroos midfielder takes on the role after the departure of Matt Smith to Thai club Bangkok Glass.

Monday’s announcement could be the start of a big week for McKay, who is expected to be named in Postecoglou’s Asian Cup squad on Tuesday.
