McGeady set for Spartak move

Celtic manager Neil Lennon expects winger Aiden McGeady to complete his move to Spartak Moscow in the next few days.
The 24-year-old Republic of Ireland international has sat out the Bhoys' pre-season campaign, having already visited Russia to talk terms and take a look at Spartak's facilities.
Lennon said after a 2-1 friendly loss to Blackburn Rovers: "He was in yesterday and more or less said his goodbyes really, so we'll see how that develops over the next one or two days. I would probably think it will be Moscow.
"He's going to go to Moscow in the next few days and get the deal finalised and that will be a relief in terms of putting the deal to bed because the sooner it's done the better.
"I won't be relieved at Aiden going because I'll be losing my best player and nobody wants to do that, but we feel it's good money for a top player.
"Having spoken to him he seemed a lot more settled. He said he liked what he saw.
"I'd like to think the way he was talking, this is the club he will go to unless something happens last minute."
