Lennon: McGeady is the one to watch

Updated: October 1, 2012

Neil Lennon says that former Celtic winger and Ireland internatinal Aiden McGeady is the player he will be especially wary of when the Glasgow side face Spartak Moscow in the Champions League tomorrow night.

Speaking after training in Moscow Lennon said, “McGeady became an even more classy player in Spartak. He’s one of those players who always attracts attention when he’s with the ball or without it.”

McGeady said that though “Celtic’s still in my heart” he won’t allow it to influence his performance.

“For 90 minutes tomorrow I won’t have friends on the pitch,” the Glasgow-born player said.

McGeady played alongside and was coached by Lennon during his time at Celtic and scored 31 times in 185 games at the club between 2004 and 2010.
