Celticâ€™s winger Aiden McGeady has finally signed a new 5 year deal at the Glasgow club, so he will not be signing for Newcastle anytime soon, another player to drop from the list.
Aiden McGeady – signs 5 year deal at Celtic
If Kevin Keegan has any plans of trying to get the player to Tyneside, this will certainly change those plans.
Celticâ€™s chief executive Peter Lawwell said about the signing today:
â€œAidenâ€™s performances in recent seasons have made him the outstanding player in Scottish football.”
“Clearly we are delighted that he has committed his long-term future to the club.â€
Obviously an excellent long term deal for both the player and his club.
The 22-year-old had a great season last year, and could have fitted in well at Newcastle, since he seems a Kevin Keegan type attacking winger.
McGeady has won Celticâ€™s Young Player of the Year award for the past 4 seasons as well as winning the clubâ€™s Player of the Year award, and the SPFA Playerâ€™s Player and Player of the Year awards for 2007/2008.
He certainly doesn’t seem short of winning personal honors, but we’re not going to dwell on this, because he’s not available to Newcastle.
We’ll need to move on.
