McLeish offered McGeady hope

Celtic's assistant manager Mark Venus has given Birmingham City hope that that they may be able to tempt the Bhoys into selling star winger Aiden McGeady this month.

The 23-year-old Republic of Ireland international is thought to be near the top of the Blues' wish-list, with former Rangers boss Alex McLeish, now in charge at St Andrew's, well aware of McGeady's abilities.

Venus told Sky Sports:"Everyone undoubtedly knows that he's a very, very good player. I thoroughly enjoy working with him every day in training.

"His appetite for the game and his desire for training and football is fantastic and I don't personally believe he's the type of player that we want to lose.

"But every footballer has a price, I would suggest at any football club.

"So it would be folly of me to sit here and say to you that there's no way Aiden McGeady's leaving. But I would suggest it would probably take a lot of money."
