Aiden McGeady admits best, worst career moments came playing for Celtic

Former Celtic winger Aiden McGeady has comments on the best and worst moments of his career so far.

Former Celtic winger Aiden McGeady has told the BBC the best and worst moments of his career - and both came whilst he was playing for the Bhoys.

McGeady, 28, is of course now playing in the Premier League with Everton, having joined the Toffees from Spartak Moscow just over a year ago.

However, the Republic of Ireland international made his name as a winger for Celtic, contributing 83 assists and 37 goals for the Bhoys in 252 appearances before leaving in 2010.

McGeady has now spoken to the BBC, answering quickfire questions about his career - and has spoken about the best and worst moments of his career to date, with both coming whilst he played for Celtic.

The best, McGeady says, was when Celtic won the Scottish Premiership title at Dundee United in a dramatic last day of the season clash back in 2008.

"Probably winning the league on the last day of the season at Tannadice," said McGeady when asked about his biggest career high, noting that it came on 'Helicopter Thursday', where the trophy was in a helicopter and would be delivered to either Celtic or Rangers, depending on who managed to end up in first place on the final day of the season.

However, McGeady also admitted that the biggest low of his career also came with the Hoops, in an incident described as 'breach of club discipline' after a row with manager Gordon Strachan in 2008.

"Maybe the fallout with Strachan, when I was suspended for a couple of weeks around Christmas time," admitted McGeady when asked what the worst point of his career has been so far.

His record at Celtic speaks for itself, and with such fond memories there, it really wouldn't be much of a shock to see him return there at some point in his career.
