Celtic winger Aiden McGeady can't wait to face his heroes at Manchester United this week in their Champions League clash.

McGeady said: "Ronaldo is a player you look up to. He's quick and strong.

"I'm also a big fan of Giggs. He's been a top player for over a decade and we'd all love to have a career like his."

McGeady spent some time at Old Trafford as a youth but is glad to be fulfilling his dreams with Celtic.

He explained: "When I was a schoolboy I used to go down there with other boys from Scotland. It was a good experience and there was a chance of signing for them.

"But Celtic was where I wanted to be and I'm glad that was the decision I made."


Can't wait til Wednesday night now! :D Mon the hoops!

If McGeady's given a wee bit of space I think he'll do a few tricks & turns. It'll be good to see him & Ronaldo up against each other.
Think we all know who'll come out on top but we can but hope.

MON THE TIC!! :lol: :wink:

God!!

Man Utd should have scored about 10.

Rooney was p*sh

Forev
13-09-2006, 09:13 PM
Rooney has only played 2 games this season, that is why! He got sent off pre-season, played against Fulham and then was banned.

Saha should have had 5 but we got the job done and that is all that matters! We've lost Giggs for upto 3 weeks but on a positive, Scholes was on FIIIII-YAH!

United!

Celtic exposed just how bad Man United are! If Ferguson thinks he can win the CL now then he might aswell give up!

Great peformance by the hoops i love you!

WILLIE MALEY

Oh Willie Maley was his name,
He brought some great names to the game,
When he was the boss at Celtic Park.

Taught them how to play football,
He made the greatest of them all,
Gallagher and Quinn have left their mark.

And they gave us James McGrory and Paul McStay,
They gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay,
And most of the football greats,
Have passed through Parkhead's gates,
All to play football the Glasgow Celtic way.

In '38 there was a show,
And Glasgow was the place to go,
A model of the Tower was football's prize.

England sent four of the best,
They didn't meet with much success,
Because the trophy ended up in Paradise.

And they gave us James McGrory and Paul McStay,
They gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay,
And most of the football greats,
Have passed through Parkhead's gates,
All to play football the Glasgow Celtic way.

Well Coronation time was here,
Fifty three, that was the year,
Another four from England met their doom.

They said we'll have to try again,
But like before it was in vain,
Because the Cup is in the Parkhead trophy room.

And they gave us James McGrory and Paul McStay,
They gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay,
And most of the football greats,
Have passed through Parkhead's gates,
All to play football the Glasgow Celtic way.

Well fourteen years had gone and so,
To Portugal we had to go,
To play the team that Italy adored.

Celtic went out to attack,
They won the Big Cup and they brought it back,
The first time it had been on British shores.

And they gave us James McGrory and Paul McStay,
They gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay,
And most of the football greats,
Have passed through Parkhead's gates,
All to play football the Glasgow Celtic way.

Now 21 years to that day,
With pride, it's our Centenary,
And we're among the honours once again.

Six million pounds the huns did spend,
But Souness found it was in vain,
Because the Celtic are the Champions again.

And they gave us James McGrory and Paul McStay,
They gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay,
And most of the football greats,
Have passed through Parkhead's gates,
All to play football the Glasgow Celtic way.

And now in 1995,
It feels good to be alive,
And we're about to celebrate again.

The fans all cry out for Pierre,
He rises up into the air,
And brings the Scottish Cup to Paradise.

And they gave us James McGrory and Paul McStay,
They gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay,
And most of the football greats,
Have passed through Parkhead's gates,
All to play football the Glasgow Celtic way.

it feels good to start with a win after last year disaster but our defense must improve after what i just saw.
the attack looks good with saha, rooney, goggs and scholes playing the mayor roles, but carrick has not been a great help yet.
the team is winning but the way we are playing does not make me feel secure.
oh i think that it was not a penalty the one that the referee gave us.
take care and I LOVE THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE!!!

Saha should have had 5 but we got the job done and that is all that matters!

i agree that he could have scored more goals but he has been good since he has been the starter and he is always there in the box ready to score.
also agree that unlike last year we got the job done at home and we need that.


We've lost Giggs for upto 3 weeks but on a positive, Scholes was on FIIIII-YAH!

United!

damn, is it sure that we will lost Giggs for those 3 weeks?
thank god that scholes is returning at his normal playing level.

With a four leaf clover on my breast,
And the green and white upon my chest,
Itís such a joy for us to see,
For they play football the Celtic way.

Itís been ten years, long time indeed,
We stood with pride and we took defeat,
Our beloved team, our ancient ground,
Has been rebuilt, a club reborn.

McCann he rode the winds of change,
And the things he brought will long remain,
A phoenix rising, a house of steel,
And 60,000 Celtic dreams.

The work is done and the stage is set,
The Celtic dream can now be met,
In a sea of dreams, weíre here today,
Lets sit and watch the Champions play.

I didn't think we were that bad tonight. The Stretford End soon drowned out that crap, remaining- nameless tune that you and your red friends like to sing! :D

Low point was a scattering of the odd Celtic fan in the Stretford End who stupidly jumped up and down when Celtic took the lead. Personally, I wouldn't bat an eyelid but as with any club, there are people who take exception and it got a bit grim at one point. I know I wouldn't go into Parkhead amongst Celtic fans with a Man Utd shirt on and cheer when we score! There's always a headcase who'll stick a nut on you.

Thought Fletcher was a bit lazy at times tonight. Neville was giving him a right rollicking at one point because he wasn't making any runs for him. Good game though and fair play to Celtic for coming at us at every opportunity. Rio on a good night would have had Jan Ven in his pocket tho! :D

We do have an ammazing winger in Aiden McGeady he has been one of our best players at the start of the season.

Unfortunately he was anonymous last night and didn't get on the ball enough and make runs.

Now FCK at home is a key game we will have too pump them rotten.

Well that's what its all about mate, everyone can see the gulf in quality, and money spent on United's team compared too Celtic's.

Im just glad we shut up all the english media saying it would be a white wash etc, United too win 5-0 etc etc.

I think we can get something from them at Parkhead, but the main concern now is beating FCK and Benfica. If United beat Benfica and Celtic beat FCK we will go 2nd.

He hasn't impressed me when I've seen him for Celtic or Ireland, I'd say he would be good in the Scottish League because he does have skill but last night he looked way out of his depth. I suppose we will have to see him develop but Celtic do have the makings of a great team there. Hopefully they can dominate Scotland now.
