Former Celtic favourite released by Premiership side, considering retirement

Former Celtic winger Aiden McGeady has been released by Hibernian as the ex-Ireland Internationalist considers hanging up his boots. The 37-year-old suffered a knee injury that ended his season in February.

The Edinburgh club confirmed that he was one of a few players leaving the club this summer. After moving to Easter Road, McGeady made just fourteen appearances since linking up again with Lee Johnson, who managed him at Sunderland.

McGeady, a product of Celtic’s youth system, left Paradise in 2010 for Spartak Moscow. The player made over 180 appearances for Celtic and has enjoyed spells with Everton, Preston North End and Sunderland. After twelve years, he returned to the league that propelled him to become a £10m player but instead the Green and White of Hibs.

Despite McGeady’s best days being behind him, he was seen an astute signing by Hibs. He added quality and experience to their squad. However, injuries limited him this season, even if he clearly was still an extremely talented player on his day.

It will be interesting to see what the player does. With twenty years of experience, he is a seasoned pro that could offer a number of teams an awful lot in a playing capacity. Recently, McGeady took to LinkedIn to update about a chance meeting with Michael Nicholson, where he spoke about Executive management with the Celtic CEO.
