Aiden McGeady has admitted that Sunday was the greatest day of his footballing career to date.

Celtic overcame their Old Firm rivals Rangers in the Co-operative Insurance Cup Final but only after extra-time at Hampden Park.

"It was an unbelievable game," McGeady told Setanta Sports.

"Rangers played well, the same as ourselves but we just had that little bit more in extra-time.

"One minute they were up the park trying to get a goal and the next we were down getting a penalty. It was just end to end stuff."

McGeady was unable to put his finger on what gave Celtic the edge in extra-time but suggested that "maybe it was fitness levels, I don't know."

When asked what it was like to beat Rangers in Cup final, an ecstatic McGeady added: "Unbelievable. Even better to score. It doesn't get any better than this!"
