FOR far too long, Aiden McGeady was one of Sunderland’s forgotten men. Now, the former Republic of Ireland international is revelling at being centre-stage.

Having been unable to keep the Black Cats in the Championship last season, McGeady suffered a calf injury at the start of the summer that ruled him out of the vast majority of the club’s pre-season programme.

As a result, while the future of Lee Cattermole and Bryan Oviedo was widely discussed in August, McGeady’s position as a third-tier player was largely ignored despite him having 92 senior international caps to his name.
