Celtic: Aiden McGeady Signs Five Year Deal

XXX XXXSenior Writer IJuly 17, 2008

Scottish Players Association and Celtic Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year, Aiden McGeady, has signed a new five year deal today.

The new deal improves on the four-and-a-half-year extension agreed with the 22-year-old Republic of Ireland international in February 2007.

"I'm looking forward to spending the next few years of my career here," said the skilful winger.

"I think I can go on and progress as a player and I can see myself doing that and achieving even more with Celtic."

Several clubs have been linked with McGeady recently, including Sunderland and Newcastle but a move away does not appeal to the player just now.

McGeady was often the lone bright spot during the doldrums of December and March and earned both the awards and the pay raise he is sure to be getting.

This transfer season, Celtic have now re-signed the top scorer in the SPL and the Player of the Year, which is not a bad off season.
