thumbnail Hello,

Ireland winger's time in the Russian capital is almost up and Spartak's former skipper has laid the boot in

Former Spartak Moscow captain Yegor Titov has called Aiden McGeady an 'a**hole' as the Ireland winger prepares to depart the Russian side in this transfer window.

McGeady is expected to quit Spartak after three-and-a-half years with Everton among the suitors for his signature.

The 27-year-old, in recent times, has been an outcast at Spartak after furious rows with coach Valeri Karpin and the former Celtic man's attitude has now been called into question.

"Many people say about McGeady he is, frankly, an 'a**hole'," Titov said according to The Sun. "Even his coach at Celtic expressed such an opinion. The problem is in his head and his attitude.

"But he is a top player and everyone knows it. If he leaves he will leave a big gap at Spartak.

"I'm surprised there are not more clubs interested in him. I am sure he will move to England, maybe to a club fighting for sixth or seventh place.

I wish him luck because he was good for Spartak. But he needs to sort himself out too."
