McCarthy’s agent Rob Moore confirmed that the former Bafana Bafana striker will move to Scotland to be closer to his family.

The 41-year-old would like to be closer to his family after he was sacked by Cape Town City following a string of poor results at the Mother City club.

McCarthy was linked with a move to Orlando Pirates with coach Rulani Mokwena serving as the Sea Robbers caretaker coach but Bafana Bafana’s all-time top scorer has since moved overseas with a coaching job in Scotland in the pipeline.

“I can’t thank these guys enough for memorable years together. Friends who became family. Gone for now but I will be back. See you guys around,” wrote McCarthy on his Instagram post.
