Kris Commons Taking Pelters From Celtic Fans After His Moussa Dembele Criticism

Kris Commons is taking pelters from Celtic after he accused Moussa Dembele of showing a lack of respect following the weekend’s game.

“But on Saturday, Dembele was disrespecting his team-mates.”

Celtic fans have jumped to Dembele’s defence, though, and instead accused Commons of double standards considering some of the incidents which marred his otherwise successful spell at the club:
