Sunderland star Aiden McGeady has been on fire since admitting that he harboured an ambition to re-sign for Celtic earlier this month.
McGeady, who enjoyed a brilliant six-year spell in Celtic's first team until 2010, told The Record that a return to Parkhead is a dream of his.
He said: "I think the moment where I could have returned as Celtic player has passed.
"I would be happy to finish my career in a Celtic shirt, but I don’t think it will happen.
The Hoops could certainly do with a winger of his class, after losing Daniel Arzani for the entire season.
And if the Sunderland man is trying to send a message to Brendan Rodgers, proving his ability, then he's certainly doing a pretty good job of it.
The 32-year-old stole the show on Tuesday as Sunderland beat Barnsley 4-2, scoring twice and setting up the other two.
In doing so, McGeady, who earns £31,000 per week on Wearside [Silly Season], now has five goals in his last six games.
It might only be League One, but the Republic of Ireland international is playing like a man possessed nonetheless and if his comments this month did reach Rodgers, the Northern Irish manager might well consider a move.
