Lennon admits McGeady blow

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has admitted that by selling midfielder Aiden McGeady, he is losing his best player.

McGeady is set to seal a £9.5 million move to Spartak Moscow in the next few days and, with Celtic already out of the Champions League, it deals Lennon another pre-season blow.

"He was in yesterday and more or less said his goodbyes really so we'll see how that develops over the next one or two days. I would probably think it will be Moscow," said Lennon.

"He's going to go to Moscow in the next few days and get the deal finalised and that will be a relief in terms of putting the deal to bed because the sooner it's done the better. I'll get all the money.

"I won't be relieved at Aiden going because I'll be losing my best player and nobody wants to do that, but we feel it's good money for a top player."

Republic of Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni confirmed on Sunday that McGeady has been given permission to miss the Ireland's friendly against Argentina on Wednesday, in order to finalise his future.

Meanwhile, Celtic's pre-season woes continued on Sunday after they lost 2-1 to English Premier League side Blackburn. Marc-Antoine Fortune struck for Celtic but strikes by David Dunn and Alan Judge gave Sam Allardyce's side victory.
