McGeady happy at Spartak

Forward relishing change of style

McGeady: Likes Spartak's style

Winger Aiden McGeady says it is a 'pleasure' to play for Spartak Moscow ahead of their clash with Chelsea on Tuesday.

The Republic of Ireland international is expected to run out against the Blues in their UEFA Champions League encounter after making the move to the Russian club in the summer.

Former Celtic man McGeady has enjoyed a successful start at Spartak, who are unbeaten in seven games since his debut last month.

The 24-year-old winger, who spent six years at Parkhead, has produced a goal and four assists in six appearances for the capital outfit.

McGeady admits his new club's approach is entirely different to what he was used to in Scotland, but insists he is relishing the change.

"I like their style. It's not like the direct game in Scotland," McGeady told the Daily Mail. "The team look to pass and move. It's a pleasure to play."
