Celtic Fans Pay Tribute to Kris Commons as Midfielder Heads For Hibs

Celtic Fans Pay Tribute to Kris Commons as Midfielder Heads For Hibs

Kris Commons Celtic career is over this afternoon after the attacking midfielder joined Hibs on an emergency loan deal, but Hoops supporters aren’t letting him leave without paying a proper tribute.

The former Scotland international struggled with injuries at the start of the campaign and failed to win over new Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers, which has resulted in Commons failing to register a single minute of competitive playing time since Rodgers’ arrival.

A parting of the ways in January always seemed inevitable, but Hibs’ injury crisis has sped things up slightly, with Commons now registered in time to play in the Championship match against Grennock Morton tomorrow.

Having joined Celtic in January 2011 for a fee of just £300,000, Commons went on to become a real fans’ favourite, scoring several crucial goals against Rangers and in Europe for the Glasgow giants.

In total, Commons scored 64 league goals for Celtic in 147 matches, and won five Premiership titles, two Scottish Cups and one League Cup, as well as the PFA Players’ Player of the Year Award in 2014.

Judging by the reaction on social media, he’ll definitely be missed:

What do you think of Commons’ transfer? Where will he rank when it comes to modern day Celtic greats?
