Snapshot: Spartak Moscow fans bid McGeady a fond farewell

Sure all the Russians are lovely people.

AIDEN MCGEADY may be surplus to requirements at Spartak Moscow these days, but that’s not how the fans see it.

The Ireland international has been transfer-listed by the Russian side and looks a certainty to take up residence in England next month.

So, with that in mind, it was pretty decent of Spartak fans to unfurl this banner, as tweeted by @EmeraldExiles ) during this weekend’s landslide 6-1 victory over Volga Nizhny Novgorod.


As Barry Landy of Emerald Exiles earlier explained, the sight would have had a further bittersweet element for McGeady as the same fans watched his positional rival Aras Ozbiliz score two of Spartak’s half dozen.
