Video: Aiden McGeady Admits to Nightclub Knockback Hours After Celtic Debut Goal

Ex-Celtic winger Aiden McGeady has revealed hours after scoring on his Hoops debut against Hearts, he was knocked-back by a nightclub in Glasgow.

The Ireland international, who completed a move from Everton to Sunderland earlier this summer, made over 180 appearances for Celtic.

Speaking to Si Ferry, McGeady spoke at length about making his first senior appearance for the club, under Martin O’Neill.

The 31-year-old says it was a “surreal” feeling to start alongside Celtic legend Henrik Larsson, as Celtic took on Hearts back in 2004.

An experience which was made all the more special when he scored the opener after just 15 minutes at Tynecastle.

However, despite scoring such a crucial goal, McGeady also admits he was refused entry into a Glasgow nightclub hours later:

McGeady spent last season on loan at Preston and the season before at fellow Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

However, with the experienced wide-man completing a permanent move to the Stadium of Light, McGeady will be hoping to get back to his very best next term.
