There is news today that Celtic winger Aiden McGeady has been involved in a major bust-up with club manager Gordon Strachan over the weekend.
Aiden Mcgeady – bust up with Gordon Strachan?
Reports this morning suggest that promising Celtic winger McGeady had been involved in a heated dressing room argument with Celtic manager Gordon Strachan after Saturday’s disappointing 1-1 home draw with Heart of Midlothian.
Kevein Keegan was reported interested in the Irish International winger, and watched him several times, and he could still be on Newcastle’s radar screen.
McGeady’s agent (Holbrook) however, has denied there is any truth in the reports, and told BBC Sport today:
“I’m very close with Aiden and his father,”
“And, believe me, if there had been any major incident over the weekend, I would know about it.”
“Neither Aiden, or his dad, have been in contact.”
McGeady has had some injuries this season and he has been frustrated at being left out of the Celtic side by manager Strachan too often recently.
If he is available, don’t be surprised if Newcastle are still interested, but they will not be paying any silly money for the player, and he would need to want to play for Newcastle United.
The 22 year-old is a good player and of course a team mate of Given and Duff in the Ireland team, even though he was born (April of 1986) and raised in Glasgow, Scotland .
He qualifies for Ireland because of his grandmother’s country of birth, and can play on either the left or right wing.
And we still haven’t replaced James Milner, since he went to Aston Villa, and this boy is exactly what we need.
