Celtic rule out move for frustrated Republic of Ireland international

Scottish giants Celtic have ruled out a move for former winger Aiden McGeady, report FourFourTwo.

The Republic of Ireland international looks set to leave Everton this month in search of first-team football ahead of his country’s Euro 2016 campaign.

There had been reports that Bhoys manager Ronny Deila would chase the out of favour 29-year old, who has only made one League Cup appearance all season.

However, Parkhead assistant boss John Collins has poured cold water over suggestions he could be set for a move back to the club he left in 2010.

‘I would rule that – yes’, stated Collins when quizzed on the matter,’ I don’t think that was realistic.

‘Aiden is a Premier League player on Premier League wages. We have always got to be realistic, we have budgets and there is a big gap between Premier League and the Championship and our league.’

Born in Glasgow, McGeady made his name at Celtic Park as a tricky winger, lifting three league titles during his time there.

In 2010, he made a lucrative move to Spartak Moscow, before joining Everton almost two years ago.
