Former Burnley and Wolves midfielder McDonald says Scotland will use the Belgium game as an opportunity to experiment before the first competitive game of Alex McLeish's second spell in charge of the Scots.
"It's the start of a new campaign for us," McDonald said.
"Of course we are playing Belgium on Friday night, which will be a tough game. It's a tough game for anyone but we have got to go about our business positively.
"I think it's good for us to test ourselves against this sort of opposition - it's what you want to do as a footballer. We won't be going into it [the match with Belgium] to make up the numbers. We'll try and play and be positive.
"We have a new squad here and it's all about getting some game-time together. Obviously we have got a massive game on Monday but Friday night will be a time to test things out.
"I think we've just got to go on and put on a show and get the fans behind us."
