MacDonald revealed until which time he plans to go travelling, he will undergo a performance in a fortnight.
He said in 2 messages on his Twitter account:”Thank you Football family – I’m absolutely overwhelmed by the support that has come my way last week.
“literally tens of thousands of messages that I am taking time reading through today (Thursday) and It really has given me a huge boost.
“I’ve got a few weeks before my first op, therefore I’m going to love some time traveling and soak up as much positivity as I possibly can.”
