Celtic eye up Aiden McGeady in attempt to boost attacking options

Published 2 Comments

Celtic have been pretty busy in the transfer window so far this summer, but, having already signed two defensive players, the Hoops are reportedly looking to add to their attacking strength and have been keeping tabs on a former fan favourite at Celtic Park.

Aiden McGeady left Parkhead in 2010 for Spartak Moscow for £12million and after five years of being away from his boyhood club it appears that the Everton winger could be on his way back home.

McGeady struggles

Not currently a part of Roberto Martinez's plans at Everton, McGeady has struggled to emulate his early success at Goodison Park and has fallen out of favour with the Spaniard. As a result the trickster may make a return to Glasgow during this window.

Often frustratingly unpredictable on the international stage and at current club Everton, McGeady has been an enigma in what should be his finest years.

A good buy

Now 29, the Ireland International should be in his prime and would be a welcome addition to the squad. Fans will surely recall that McGeady was one of the most exciting players to play for the Scottish champions in the modern era.

Investing in a former talent who has seen his influence depreciate on the pitch may prove to be a gamble, and Celtic fans will tell you McGeady has never lost his ability to frustrate fans as much as opposition players.

However, with the nature of the SPL changing in recent years it could be the perfect time for the former Bhoy to head back up north for football.

Any deal is a long way off and is pure speculation at the moment, but with the transfer window only just opened there is plenty of time for Everton and Celtic to thrash out a potential deal. If they can then McGeady might have already played his last competitive game for The Toffees.

Celtic fans, does McGeady represent a good potential bit of business? Let us know if you want to sign him or not in the comments box below.
