Former Celtic midfielder Aiden McGeady has been told he is surplus to requirements at his current club Everton with new manager Ronald Koeman stripping his squad number away from him.
The Irishman who left Celtic for Russia six years ago has been at Everton for the past two seasons, being shipped out on-loan last term to Sheffield Wednesday.
The former Celtic youth academy player is now 30 and has a few good years left still in him. That’s why I think it’s time Celtic look into bringing him home.
In Aiden you have a player who knows the club, has handled the pressure before at a younger age and we can now reap the benefits of a much more well rounded mature player.
Everton aren’t likely going to ask for the world in terms of a fee and I don’t see his wages being a stumbling block. He has many admirers in the stands at Celtic Park but also many detractors who criticised him on a weekly basis the first time round.
With so much at stake this season it would be a very good and financially friendly choice to bring our bhoy home. With 85 full caps for his country and experience in two different, highly competitive leagues, it makes sense.
