Aiden McGeady is hoping that he can help to turn around the fortunes of Spartak Moscow when he returns to Celtic Park this week.

The Russian side have now lost their last three games and they travel to Glasgow on Wednesday night, when a result for Celtic could see the Hoops progress to the last 16 of the Champions League. McGeady swapped Scotland for Russia two years ago and he believes that his side can end Celtic's dreams of qualification.

"Everyone is upset at recent results but we intend ending our bad run this week. Despite everything that's happened, I hope we can still win," he said in the Daily Record, before going on to talk about Spartak's 4-2 defeat at home to Zenit St Petersburg this weekend.

"We were all very disappointed with the Zenit result but, personally, I was delighted to be back playing after a spell out injured.

"We created enough chances to win the game but we didn't defend well enough against a very good team.

"Our main hope now for the rest of the season is that the fans don't desert us as we need them more than ever. I understand our fans are not in the best of moods right now but I would ask them to rally round the team at this difficult time."
