Almost every time he has celebrated his birthday it could be argued that Aiden McGeady’s career is at a crossroads.
With 92 international caps and three SPL winners medals from his time at Celtic it is a career that many would happily swap places for.
At the same age as Scott Brown there should still be a few good seasons ahead of McGeady but with Sunderland heading for League One it is highly unlikely that he will start next season at the Stadium of Light.
With expensive continental imports filling up the EPL McGeady was forced into the overflow that is The Championship last season where he impressed with Simon Grayson as Preston finished in the top half of the table.
Joining Grayson in the north east seemed a sensible move as he cut his ties with Everton but it looks certain that Sunderland will be suffering back-to-back relegations with Chris Coleman now in charge.
A return to Celtic has long been rumoured for former Academy kid but Brendan Rodgers seems to have plenty of options down the wing for next season.
During his 200 Celtic appearances there was plenty of magical moments, hopefully there are still more memories to follow.
