KRIS COMMONS has had to make an embarrassing climb down after being up in arms about former Scotland teammate Robert Snodgrass in his Daily Mail column.
The former Celtic midfielder turned media shill had a go at Snodgrass among others for not taking up the call from Alex McLeish for international duty.
There has now been eleven call offs to the squad for Scotland’s Nation’s League double header but Robert got the brunt of it from Commons who questioned why Snodgrass could play 15 games for West Ham but fail to show for his country.
The 35-year-old wrote: “Snodgrass has asked not to be picked due to an apparent ankle knock. But he’s fit enough to have played 15 times for West Ham this season. How does that work?
“I find it strange with Snodgrass. He’s a hugely popular member in the camp. He obviously just doesn’t fancy turning up and maybe not playing every game.”
This morning Kris wanted to retract his statement with a short message on Twitter to clarify he was wrong about Snodgrass and that the player was actually injured.
“I just want to clarify my column on Monday. I was wrong about Robert Snodgrass regarding international pull outs.”
Commons has lost a lot of fans since taking up a role in the media. His outing on Sky Sports rarely ends up hitting a positive note among the Celtic support.
Between Commons and Boyd, it feels like amateur hour.
At least he retracted his statement. We’re still waiting on Boyd doing the same for his Celtic dressing room split conjecture which held no truth in this reality.
