Dundee United striker Noel Hunt believes Celtic winger Aiden McGeady deserves to be rated in the £25 million class.

The Irishman said: "I've read reports of him being a £12m player but if he was a Brazilian or Italian with the same skills he'd be worth £25m.

"When Aiden played against Barcelona at Parkhead he gave Carles Puyol, one of the world's best defenders, a going-over.

"You don't see that every day, someone taking on Puyol and skinning him. Aiden is a gem and Gordon Strachan will find it hard to hold on to him."
