'Momentum can shift very quickly' - McGeady

Former Celtic winger Aiden McGeady thinks momentum may have shifted in the title race as his former side returned to the summit of the Scottish Premiership.

Brendan Rodgers' men went top of the league on Saturday with a comfortable win over St Johnstone, with Rangers' fixture with Dundee postponed due to a waterlogged pitch on Sunday.

"It's funny how momentum can shift very quickly in the league and in this city," McGeady told BBC's Scottish Football Podcast.

"You go back two weeks and then all of a sudden momentum maybe seems to be back in Celtic's favour. People might argue with that, but with the [Rangers] game being called off [on Sunday] and then Celtic have Livingston - who you'd expect them to beat - next week.

"You've got Rangers trying to possibly cram in a fixture between the Hibs and the Celtic games. Things can change very quickly.

"But Celtic played well yesterday. I always understand when you come in a new team it's difficult to hit the ground running, especially if you're coming from a foreign league, but Nicolas Kuhn done well, cut inside and showed a good bit of technique.

"It was kind of like the Kyogo of old. I think Kyogo's been missing that this season. Crosses and first-time crosses and he's always been there. His movement's always been there to be free in the box, but it's good to see him scoring."
