Aiden McGeady will not be in Wednesday’s squad for Saturday’s Championship play-off final.
McGeady, who joined us on loan from Everton in February, failed to figure in either leg of the semi final win over Brighton and now Republic of Ireland manager, Martin O’Neill, has revealed that McGeady has been allowed to join his squad as they prepare for their Euro 2016 campaign next month.
O’Neill said: “Aiden and the manager decided for one reason or another that he wouldn’t participate in the final and that he could come with us.
“You will have to imagine what that situation might have been.
“Aiden has plenty of confidence, but to not be involved in a play-off final would be disappointing for him. For whatever reason between him and the manager, the manager has not picked him, so maybe his confidence will be affected somewhat.”
McGeady failed to show any level of consistency during his spell at Hillsborough and it now appears unlikely that he will return to the club next season.
