    He did really well with Spartak to begin with, if I recall correctly?

    Yeah, pretty sure he was in the leagues team of the season. Never really kicked on from there though. Probably should've moved after a 2nd season.

    I was never a huge fan as I felt his end product was lacking. For a winger his crossing was pretty poor.

    Signed for Charlton on loan. Thought that he might have ended up at Hibs

    AIDEN MCGEADY insists he would love a return to Celtic.

    However, he admits that ship has likely sailed as he revealed why he believes the Hoops would opt against the move.


    McGeady is currently banished from the Sunderland first team having been sent out on loan to Charlton in January.

    He returned to the Stadium of Light but has since been forced to train with the Under-23s.


    He insists he would love to stay with the Black Cats but is unsure where his future lies.

    McGeady has been away from Scottish football since his Parkhead exit in 2010 but isn't sure about a return north of the border as he opened up on a dream Celtic return.


    Speaking on GO Radio, he said: "I don't know, it's a hard one.

    "There's been a little bit of talk before in January about me possibly going to Hibs with Jack Ross.



    Obviously I've had a few messages about it and stuff. But honestly, I don't know.

    "Maybe if Lenny [Neil Lennon] gets in touch then I might, aye! But I don't think that's going to happen, I think that ship has sailed.

    "My first choice would be Celtic but I think that time in my career has passed to be honest with you.


    "I was 34 in April, I played in the Championship at the end of last season.



    It depends on how your body holds up but at my age just now I actually feel great.



    "I've probably lost a little bit of speed but not to the extent where I'd say I'm slow.

    "I honestly feel I could play another four or five years but whether someone employs you for that long is a different story."

    Cover for the left wing? Probably too old, I haven’t seen him play since his Everton days

    Apparently on decent money, the training with u23s is probably an attempt to embaress him to leave. He has been part of * Sunderland and * Charlton teams in recent years, about to turn 35. Mikey, Moi and Jamesy can all play on the left so I see no real value in mcgeady. I can't see him joining us unless he comes back as a coach one day.

    I would've signed him in 2015 under Deila. He had an underwhelming time at Everton but he was still a decent player then. Now? Get tae.

    His professionalism and attitude leave a lot to be desired, someone of his natural skill and talent should've had a far better career.
