FORMER Celtic winger Aiden McGeady believes that Neil Lennon is his most underrated former team-mate from his time at Parkhead.

McGeady, now on the books at Hibernian, played alongside the Northern Irishman for three years between 2004 and 2007 before Lennon moved to Nottingham Forest.

McGeady would go on to join Spartak Moscow in 2010 in a £9.5million move and although he also rates former Scotland internationalist Paul Lambert highly, he believes Lennon flew unde the radar during his time as a player in Glasgow's East End.

"When I was a young Celtic fan growing up I used to look at Neil Lennon and he used to get booed for passing the ball sideways, not positive enough," McGeady told Go Radio.

"And then when you actually play with him at training you realise he never gives the ball away.

"In terms of underrated, you had Lenny and Lambo [Paul Lambert] but Lambo was the one that everybody was like 'wow, his technique is unbelievable'.

"Lenny wasn't technically as good as Lambo but very underrated.

"Think of all the trophies that he won at Celtic. I'd probably say Lenny."
