Celtic’s epic Champions League encounter against Manchester City on Wednesday night was a watershed moment for midfielder Kris Commons – and he wasn’t even in the Hoops’ squad.
The former Scotland international has became a hero to the Celtic fans after winning five league titles and scoring nearly 100 goals in his five and a half years at the club.
But, of late, Commons has struggled with injuries, and has yet to feature under new manger Brendan Rodgers, leading to speculation in the summer that his time in Glasgow may be up.
However, Commons has insisted that he is desperate to prove his worth to Rodgers and even says that he realised he is a “proper Celtic supporter” as he watched the 3-3 draw with City from the stands.
He made the comments speaking STV Glasgow during a boxing match in Glasgow on Thursday night between Mikey Towell and Dale Evans:
So much respect for Kris Commons loved that guy since he signed. What a true proffessional he is. https://t.co/ufGYBebGbw

As you can see, Commons seems raring to go, but will he be given an opportunity under Rodgers?
Who could he replace in the starting XI?
