Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill reveals that he was delighted with Aiden McGeady's two-goal performance in their clash against Georgia.

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has hailed Aiden McGeady's display in his side's 2-1 win over Georgia in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier.

McGeady notched two goals in the game, including a late winner with a fantastic strike from distance to get O'Neill's men off to a winning start in their campaign.

"He was the only player on the field that was scoring the goal. He really is a fantastic talent," O'Neill told Sky Sports News.

"He probably thinks at this age he should have been up there with the very finest players. He has that talent and he showed that tonight."
