Sunderland winger Aiden McGeady has admitted he would be open to returning to Celtic one day, as per a report by the Daily Record.

The 32-year-old played over 250 games for the Scottish Premier League giants during his ten years at the club.

McGeady has started this season in impressive fashion with Sunderland in League One and is hoping to help Jack Ross’ side gain an immediate promotion back to the Championship.

The experienced winger has stated his desire to put on the Celtic shirt a few more times before he calls time on his playing days. Speaking to the Daily Record, McGeady said, “I would be happy to finish my career in a Celtic shirt, but I don’t think it will happen”.

When asked about whether he would like to go into coaching after retirement, he stated “A couple of years ago I would have flatly rejected the idea of becoming a coach, but the older I get, the more I play and watch football, the more often I think about it”.

McGeady started his career with Queen’s Park before joining Celtic as a youngster in 2000. He stayed with the Glasgow side until 2010 when Russian Premier League side Spartak Moscow paid £9.5 million for his signature.

Spells at Everton, Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End and now Sunderland have followed for the Republic of Ireland international. His primary aim will be promotion with the Black Cats this season, but could he make a return to Celtic in the near future?
