Ireland midfielder Aiden McGeady has joined Spartak Moscow from Celtic after signing a long-term contract with the Russian Premier League club.
“Today we completed the signing of Aiden McGeady who joined our club on a long-term contract,” Spartak said on their website on Friday.
British media reported the fee for the 24-year-old winger was around £9.5 million.
After signing, McGeady paid tribute to Celtic and the club’s fans.
“The Celtic fans are second to none and it is a fantastic club to play for,” he said on Celtic website (www.celticfc.net).
“Celtic is the team I have supported my whole life and will miss so many things, however I am looking forward to the challenge of playing for Spartak Moscow.”
Spartak hope McGeady will help revive their stuttering domestic season as well as play a role in the forthcoming Champions League campaign.
