In △ABC (not isosceles) CH, CL and CM are respectively height, bisector and median. Show that ∠ACB=90 degrees if and only if ∠HCL=∠MCL. I think that I have to show that △MCB (or △ACM) is isosceles, but I can't figure it out. I will be very grateful if you help me.

If angle ACB = 90°, MA, MB and MC are equal radii of the circumcircle of triangle ABC, so triangles MCA and MCB are isosceles.
