Lennon praises PFA double winner McGeady
Celtic coach Neil Lennon has been taken aback with the improvement in double award winner Aiden McGeady over the past year.
Lennon left Celtic as a player at the end of last season only to return as a coach earlier this month and was delighted to see Hoops winger McGeady win the PFA Scotland Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards.
'It's fantastic for him and thoroughly deserved. He's a very talented boy. He excites people and he's just got a natural God-given talent.
'He's worked really, really hard at his game in the last year and he's blossomed into a superb footballer.
'His fitness levels are incredible and he's got a real purpose and drive about his game all the time. He's been a really crucial player for us this season and will be for the run-in.'
McGeady's form in the SPL and Champions League will no doubt have brought him to the attention of clubs south of the border but Lennon insists the Hoops have no plans to sell.
'We'll do everything we can to hold on to him. As far as we're concerned, he's not going anywhere,' he added.
There was also a special merit award in memory of the late Phil O'Donnell, the Motherwell midfielder who died in December.
The award was accepted by O'Donnell's nephew, Well striker David Clarkson.
