Aiden McGeady Signs Hibernian Contract With A Four Colour Pen, It's Bringing Back School Memories

Aiden McGeady Signs Hibernian Contract With A Four Colour Pen, It's Bringing Back School Memories

The 36-year-old winger has signed a one-year deal with the Scottish Premiership club.

Aiden McGeady made us feel a tad nostalgic this week when he signed his Hibernian contract using a classic '4 colour pen'.

The 36-year-old winger, who made his name at Celtic before joining the likes of Spartak Moscow, Everton and Sunderland, has joined the Scottish Premiership outfit on a one-year deal.

He left recently-promoted Sunderland this summer after scoring 36 goals in 149 appearances for the North East club.

McGeady will certainly bring a wealth of experience to the fold at Easter Road and the majority of fans have expressed their excitement at the new signing, especially after his contract-signing antics.

That's right. The former Republic of Ireland international got his Hibs career off to a cracking start on Friday when he signed his new contract using a primary school classic – the four colour pen.

It didn't take people long to clock on to his nostalgic penmanship. One fan said: "Honestly, is this the state of Scottish football when players are pictured signing with a multi-coloured pen?"

Another fan wrote: "Wtf is that pen. I had that at primary school," while a third simply posted a delightful picture of Aiden McGeady's multi-coloured signature.

Here's some more reaction to the announcement:

Away from the riveting topic of pens and Hibernian manager Lee Johnson has expressed his delight at snapping up McGeady on a one-year deal.

"He will bring skill, experience and gravitas to our team," Johnson told the club's website. "Aiden is a top player, has had a fantastic career to date and we aim to extend and accentuate his abilities within the blend of our new-look squad.

“We will also look to utilise Aiden’s fantastic leadership qualities to help guide and get the best out of our young forward players.”

Ian Gordon, who is Hibernian's Head of Recruitment, believes the winger will bring an excellent blend of experience and top-class quality to their squad.

He added: "He has played at the very top level during his career and will help raise our standards going forward.”
