After managing to accumulate 27 goals and 13 assists in 98 appearances for Sunderland, Aiden Mcgeady joined Charlton Athletic as one of their January 2020 transfer signings.
McGeady’s career starting point was at Celtic where he progressed through their youth ranks to become a regular for the Bhoys securing 4 Scottish League titles, 2 Scottish Cups and a Scottish League Cup. The pivotal point of his career was in the 2007/08 campaign as he rose to prominence becoming the Scottish PFA player’s player of the year, young player of the year, SPL young player of the year as well as making the team of the year having scored 7 goals and making 17 assists in that season.
McGeady ended his 6 year illustrious spell with Celtic by deciding to venture abroad joining Russian side Spartak Moscow, helping himself to 13 goals and a noteworthy 28 assists in 93 appearances during his time in the Russian Capital.
After Spartak Moskow, the Irish international went on to play for Everton, Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End and Sunderland before joining the Addicks.
Playing in The Scottish and English Premier leagues, the EFL Championship and League One, and with his participation in European football, a player with his vast experience will no doubt help bolster the Addicks with Bowyer citing that experience as a key trait going into the back end of the season.
