Marc Crosas was the happier former Celt in Russia last night after Volga beat Krylya Sovetovt 2-0 at home while Aiden McGeady picked up a first half injury in Spartak Moscow’s 0-0 draw with Rubin Kazan.
Two second half goals from Georgian striker Otar Martsvaladze gave Volga their first win since their 3-1 victory away to FK Rostov on April 10.
The points lift Volga into 11th place in the 16 team division just four points behind Spartak whose title hopes have vanished with a horrendous injury list.
McGeady was withdrawn from the Ireland side that beat Italy 2-0 on Tuesday to help Spartak out but lasted just 35 minutes of yesterday’s draw before going off injured.
On Tuesday Spartak are away to Tom Tusk while Volga travel to meet Krasnodar.
