Kris Commons ‘Highly Unlikely’ to be Handed a Cameo Against Hearts

Kris Commons ‘Highly Unlikely’ to be Handed a Cameo Against Hearts

Kris Commons will leave Celtic following the final league game of the season this weekend, but it looks increasingly unlikely that supporters will be given a proper chance to say goodbye.

The 33-year-old became a fan favourite after winning 2013/14 PFA Player of the Year awards, and has won five Scottish Premiership titles, two Scottish Cups and one League Cup since arriving in Glasgow back in 2011.

However, the ex-Scotland international hasn’t kicked a ball all season under Brendan Rodgers, and despite reports Commons could be in the squad to face Hearts on Sunday, the Northern Irishman admitted today that a swansong probably won’t take place:

To date, Commons has scored 91 goals in 226 matches for the Hoops, including several very important strikes against bitter rivals Rangers, and in Europe too.

Not bad for a player signed for around £300,000, eh?

Should he be given the chance to bow out in front of the Parkhead crowd this weekend?
