Kris Commons on His Molde Meltdown: ‘I Embarrassed Myself, I Embarrassed the Club’

Kris Commons on His Molde Meltdown: ‘I Embarrassed Myself, I Embarrassed the Club’

Kris Commons has set the record straight over his meltdown in Molde two years ago, with the midfielder admitting he let himself and his team-mates down.

Back in 2015, Celtic were going through a rough patch under Ronny Deila, and they travelled to Norway to take on Molde in a must-win Europa League group match.

However, the game ended in a 3-1 defeat and after being substituted in the second-half, Commons went ballistic at the Hoops coaching team for hauling him off.

Now, in an interview with BBC Sportsound, the 33-year-old has given his take on the night, and is willing to hold his hands up for his part in the debacle:

In the end, Celtic went on to lose to Molde in Glasgow two weeks later, with Commons on the score-sheet in both matches, in what proved to be Ronny Deila’s final campaign with the club.

What do you make of Commons’ explanation?
