Brown: Players want McGeady to stay at Celtic

Celtic skipper Scott Brown states all of the team want Aiden McGeady to stay at the club. Brown believes the winger would grace any league in the world but is desperate for him to remain at Parkhead once the transfer window closes.

"I think everyone in the dressing room wants him to stay," he said.

"Aiden's a fantastic player.

"I think he'd fit in well to any Premier League team as well.

"If he goes, we wish him all the best, but we hope he stays."

McGeady made his first appearance in a Hoops jersey since May on Saturday afternoon, playing almost an hour of his club's 2-2 Emirates Cup draw against Lyon.

Spartak Moscow, Aston Villa and Tottenham are all rumoured to be keen on his services.

Brown said: "He's a huge player for us, he's great, he's talented, can create chances and score goals.

"We've maybe missed that in the last couple of games but you've seen over the last four or five seasons he's played for Celtic, he's been frightening.

"He creates chances from nothing."
