Sunderland new boy Aiden McGeady reveals his strained relationship with former Celtic boss (Strachan)

Sunderland new boy Aiden McGeady has opened up on his relationship with former Celtic boss Gordon Strachan.
McGeady was speaking to Simon Ferry on the Si Ferry Meets... show, presented by Open Goal, and revealed he and the now Scotland boss had a stormy relationship.

The Republic of Ireland winger certainly has a passion for playing, but won Strachan round by getting his head down in the reserves.
“We played Rangers at Ibrox and he [Strachan] stuck Paul Lawson on the bench ahead of me,” McGeady said. “I was raging.
“Tommy Burns pulled me aside and told me to show a little respect and to back my team-mates, which was fair enough.
“I went to go and see the manager on the Monday after and he just said, ‘nah, you’re not for me, you’re not my type of guy, you think you’re ahead of yourself’. So I asked to go out on loan and he said no. So I went back to playing reserves every week.
“I won him over just through working hard and keeping my head down. Eventually he came to see a reserve game and he pulled me aside and said, ‘well done, you’ve turned it around for yourself’. After that I was playing.
“Me and Strachan, it probably just a clash of personalities. I thought he singled me out a lot of the time. Unfair criticism and things like that.
“I felt I had to be playing well literally every single game to stay in the team, where as other players got a bit of leniency. Our relationship was always a bit strained.”
