Republic of Ireland winger out of contract at end of season but could move for a cut-price in January after latest disagreement which sees him training with reserves
The 27-year-old reportedly came in for heavy criticism from Karpin following Spartak's 1-0 derby defeat to CSKA Moscow last weekend and has been banished to train the reserves.
Ahead of this week's Russian Premier League match against Volga, Karpin confirmed the McGeady situation.
"McGeady was suspended from training with the first team for not complying with my instructions in training and matches,” Karpin said. “The rest is our internal affair."
McGeady joined Spartak from Celtic in 2010 and is currently in the last year of his contract. He has been linked with a move to the English Premier League in the upcoming winter transfer window with Everton manager Roberto Martinez a known admirer.
