Celtic's McGeady insists lazy days are over

Celtic winger Aiden McGeady says his "lazy" days are over.

McGeady, 20, said: "When I was younger I was a lazier player. A lot of what people said went in one ear and out of the other. I never used to think about working back and doing a job for the team until it was drummed into me. A lot of it is to do with your state of mind and it comes down to whether you can be bothered or not. As you get older you realise you can't really do that any more and that the manager is right.

"I'm a very different player now and the main part of my game is working back. If you don't do a job for the team people consider you a luxury player, and luxury players don't generally get a run in the team."
