SUNDERLAND new boy Lewis Morgan made his debut, but it was old Bhoy Aiden McGeady who stole the limelight in the 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon at the weekend.

The Celtic winger agreed a loan deal during the week and went straight into Jack Ross’ side in the pursuit of League One points in their surge for promotion.

And former Hoops hero McGeady claimed the only goal in the 67th minute to end a run of three successive 1-1 draws and push them into fourth spot, three points behind Barnsley.

Ross was delighted to be reunited with his ex-St Mirren attacker Morgan and the Scotland international lasted until seven minutes from time before coming off.

But it was McGeady who was the focus of attention for the former Paisley gaffer after a superb performance at the Stadium of Light.

Ross said: “I thought Aidan was really bright and once again he has proven his quality.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with him. Players are all different, but he cares. He cares about his football and about his standards.

“He’s not just a talented player – you don’t have a career he’s had in the game without the drive  to win games and get the better of your opponents.

“Players can show that in different ways. He doesn’t speak about it, but he has that in him.

“You don’t play for your country and play in the Champions League without that.”

Republic of Ireland midfielder McGeady, 32, claimed the winner in the 67th minute when he cashed in on error by defender Tennai Watson to curl in a fine finish into the far corner.
