The former Ireland and Celtic player Aiden McGeady has spoke to the BBC about the level of abuse he received for playing for the Republic of Ireland over Scotland.
“Going to every away ground and getting booed every time you touched the ball – did that not happen? It did, didn’t it?” he said on BBC Radio Scotland’s Sportsound programme.
“It didn’t affect me. Because I think there are plenty of players who have played for other teams, plenty of Scottish players that have played for other teams. Did Scott Arfield not play for Canada? Brian McLean, he chose Northern Ireland. Did they get the same abuse as me? Why did I get that abuse?”
