Has Kris Commons’ Fiancée Offered Some Hope to Hibs That He Might Sign For Them?

Has Kris Commons’ Fiancée Offered Some Hope to Hibs That He Might Sign For Them?

Kris Commons definitely won’t be a Celtic player after this summer.

But where will the 33-year-old midfielder end up after finishing his seven-year spell at Parkhead?

Commons hasn’t been able to play consistently this season due to injury, but did make an impact during an emergency loan spell at Hibs.

He played five times for the Hibees after reuniting with former Celts manager Neil Lennon at Easter Road.

And that will inevitably lead to links with a return to Hibs now that they’re a Scottish Premiership club after winning the Championship this season.

Commons started his career in England and that may have led to links with a move back down south after leaving Celtic.

But his fiancée Lisa has confirmed they’ll remain in Glasgow after leaving Celtic – and that will surely lead to more speculation about a return to Hibs:

Wow yesterday was emotional! 6 years being part of Celtic football club as a players partner…. I threw myself into Celtic, the foundation, the supporters, everything. I am so glad that I made my own memories being at this club, I have flew all over the world, partied with supporters been on busses, sat on every seat at Celtic Park and just had a ball x I have loved every single second. I just wish we could do it all over again. Thank you for welcoming me and my family, thank you for all the charity support and thank you for Kris' reception We're staying in Glasgow, so.. see you around xxx Full outfit by @rubywooglasgow Hair by @gthair122 #celticfc #celtic #fooball #scotland #glasgow #family #greenandwhite #hoops #emotional

Commons may decide to retire, but that looks unlikely given his age and this frustrating season.

And it then comes down to who could afford to sign Commons? Aberdeen may be seen as an option, but Hibs seems more likely given the budget they should have for returning to the Premiership.

If he was to end up at Hibs and regained full fitness, he could make a massive difference for Lennon’s men on the top flight.
