KRIS COMMONS is targeting a treble against Dundee United at Hampden tomorrow afternoon.
The Celtic midfielder is poised to make his comeback after limping off in the early stages of the 4-0 win over Aberdeen at the start of the month.       .
And the former Scotland international is determined to complete a clean sweep of domestic honours since joining the Hoops from Derby for a bargain £300,000 in January 2011.
Commons has already lifted the three Premier League titles and two Scottish Cups, but so far success in the League Cup has escaped him.
The 31-year-old wants to rectify that situation against the Tannadice outfit at the national stadium.
Last season’s Player of the Year after scoring a phenomenal 32 goals said: “We’ve got a huge chance to win it and it’d be nice to put that medal alongside the other ones. I didn’t actually realise I hadn’t won it yet.

“I think it’ll be a little bit different from the semi-final, but I’m hoping that the pitch is going to be in better condition, so, hopefully, we can play a bit more football.

“We like to get the ball down and play, pass and move as quickly as possible. If it’s not great turf then it’s not ideal to do that. So, if the turf is in good condition then we can play attractive football for the fans.”

Commons realises victory tomorrow will keep Ronny Deila’s team on course for the domestic treble.

He told Celtic TV: “It would be one of the boxes ticked and that’s what we’re aiming for.
“We’ve got some very important games coming up, with the Scottish Cup replay against United next midweek, so I think we can concentrate on the job in hand.

“We need to put 100 per cent effort into the Cup Final because if you start eyeing other prizes, you take your eye off the most important one and that’s this one.”
