No sympathy for Rangers

FORMER Celtic hero Aiden McGeady says he feels no sympathy for the plight of their Old Firm rivals.

"It's their own fault, overpaying players' wages 10-15 years ago and not paying taxes on them, it comes back to haunt you in football," said McGeady, who spent eight years at Celtic before the club sold him to Spartak Moscow.

"I'm a Celtic fan so I can't say I feel much sympathy for them, but if it was happening to Celtic I'd be gutted. I have a lot of friends who are Rangers fans and it's unfortunate when that happens to your team, but Rangers are too big a club to go under. The have had points deducted but I can't see the club going under," added McGeady, who checked up on his old team-mates during a trip back to Scotland over the festive season.

"I was home for a few weeks and I got to see the Celtic-Rangers game, which Celtic won 1-0. It was strange being back, I am more used to being on the pitch and it was odd to be sitting in the stands, it felt a bit surreal but it was a good night as we won.

"With Rangers falling apart, things are quite good for the Celtic fans."
