Kris Commons return to the Celtic team on Sunday was enormously welcome, even if it didn’t produce his first goal of the season. Kris has had a wretched season after arriving with a bang from Derby County in January last year.
He is not the most athletic or skilful player in the team but he has an abundance of football intelligence, well in excess of his contemporaries. The cross-field pass for the second goal against St Johnstone was a perfect example. Celtic players were rushing forward on a break, while defenders were flooding back. To the annoyance of many sitting around me, Kris slowed things down, surveyed the field and switched play to Ki on the opposite wing.
This has been a great and memorable season for Celtic but there remains plenty to do. An hour or so watching Kris Commons is enough to demonstrate the way forward.
