Neil Lennon drops his biggest hint yet that he wants to take Kris Commons down to the Reebok.
In an Interview with Radio Manchester the former Celtic boss was asked about his position on his top goal scoring midfielder from last season and this is what the Irishman had to say –
Is there interest from us? I know Kris very well but whether we can get a deal done there is another thing,”
“I think there is other interest in Kris. It wouldn’t surprise me because of the quality of player that he is, but I know Celtic will do all they can to keep him there as well.” he added.
It’s obvious from these comments that Neil has been active in trying to lure Kris down south. The retired Scottish International is keen to stay at Celtic but has yet to come to terms on a new deal with the club. Being in the last 6 months of his contract means he is able to speak to other clubs at this point. He has been used sparingly this season but looks like he may have a pivotal role in the second half of Celtic’s campaign after starting Celtic’s last domestic match and playing very well.
Bolton are currently 16th in the Championship and 11 points off a play-off place.
Most Celtic fans agree that Commons still has plenty to offer the club on and off the pitch and will no doubt join us in saying to our former gaffer….
