Jack Ross has paid homage to the class of Aiden McGeady.
The 32-year-old dispatched a top drawer free-kick on Saturday to double Sunderland’s advantage at Bristol Rovers to take his tally to four goals in his previous six matches.
That return has helped the Lads take maximum points in their last two fixtures, with McGeady’s total for the season now standing at 11 goals and six assists in all competitions – already his best return in a campaign.
Speaking to safc.com, Ross salute the efforts of the winger so far this term, admitting he doesn’t get enough praise for the quality he has.
“Aiden’s pedigree and what he has achieve as a player shows the quality he has,” he said.
“I don’t think he gets enough credit for how good he is if I’m honest.
“Working first hand with him, he is a really talented footballer.
“The reality is he will dip below the standards he sets of himself now and again, but he produces real moments of quality very often.
“Time and time again, he produces real moments of quality,” he continued.
“I said it earlier in the week how much he is enjoying his football at the minute and that’s reflected in his performances and tangible return in terms of goals and assists.”
