KRIS COMMONS is on the brink of quitting Celtic to rejoin Neil Lennon at Hibs for the remainder of the season.
The former Scotland international midfielder completed his emergency loan spell at the Easter Road club earlier this month.
Commons, a fans’ favourite at Parkhead, hasn’t made an appearance under Brendan Rodgers, but his ex-Hoops boss Lennon selected him five times for the promotion-chasing Edinburgh outfit.

The 33-year-old playmaker scored two decisive winners during his month-long stay and the club are eager for him to return.
Commons has been nursing a back injury, but Rodgers has confirmed ongoing dialogue between Hibs, Celtic and the former Nottingham Forest and Derby star.
The Celtic manager said: “He had a good period at Hibs and they were keen to do something. It was between the clubs in terms of whether they could organise it, but also to do with Kris.
“His contract is up. He’s not just looking at the next six months, he is looking at the next few years.”
With the transfer window closing tomorrow night, Lennon is determined to do business before it is too late.
Kris Commons, while he has never featured under Brendan Rodgers, was clearly Celtic’s most important player for a number of years and will be warmly remembered for his time in the Hoops.
