Stephen Ireland On His Way To Parkhead?

Since arriving at Aston Villa Stephen Ireland has had a turbulent time, starting nine times, partly down to injury. His move from Manchester City was meant to re ignite his footballing career or at least prolong his career, similar to his hair transplant! His move was seen as an ingenious idea and excited many, but lack of commitment has seen him already fall out of favour with the club. Gerard Houllier has replaced the Irishman with in-form duo Barry Bannan & Marc Albrighton.

It’s being reported that Stephen Ireland is currently unsettled in the midlands and the rumors are doing the rounds over where he’s going next. He’s already being linked to Celtic & Tottenham with colleague Steve Sidwell in deep talks with West Ham.

Ireland hasn’t been shy of controversy during his career, once famously lying to the Irish national soccer team about his wife being labour claiming his granny had died. He was also critical of current Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini, claiming that the Italian held no relationship with any of the players.

Any comments vastly appreciated!


About Dylan O'Neill

Football mad Irish 20-year-old. Living in Dublin so I've had a keen interest in League of Ireland for the last 2-3 years and used to write about it on, focusing mainly on UCD's limited fortunes as well as the Irish national team. I started to merge this interest with gambling two years ago to moderate success so have continued to do so since! View all posts by Dylan O'Neill
