John Collins reveals contract offers to John Guidetti and Kris Commons

Celtic Champions League

Celtic assistant manager John Collins is hopeful that John Guidetti and Kris Commons will sign contracts.

Celtic assistant manager John Collins was speaking to the media today ahead of Thursday's big Europa League clash with Red Bull Salzburg - and he had great news for Celtic fans.

Collins told the press that midfielder Kris Commons and striker John Guidetti have been offered contracts to stay at Celtic Park amid speculation over their futures in Glasgow.

"[They have] been made offers and it's just a wait and see. Fingers crossed both will sign their contracts", he added.

Commons, 31, joined Celtic from Derby back in 2011, penning a three-and-a-half year deal after Celtic agreed a £300,000 fee with the Rams.

The former Nottingham Forest star has been nothing short of sensational for Celtic, scoring 32 goals in 48 games from midfield last season, with his total tally for the Hoops now standing at 71 goals in 164 games.

Yet with speculation linking him with Crystal Palace, as well as former clubs Derby and Forest ahead of contract expiration this summer, it's imperative that Celtic keep him at the club with this latest contract offer.

Meanwhile, Swedish international striker Guidetti has been a revelation since manager Ronny Deila snapped him up on loan from Manchester City on deadline day.

With ten goals in 11 games, the 22-year-old has become an instant fan favourite, leading to speculation over a possible permanent deal with Celtic.

Guidetti's Manchester City contract expires at the end of this season, and recent rumours have been linking him with a move to Marseille in January or next summer.

However, Celtic are aiming to make a huge coup by keeping him at the club, and fans just have to keep everything crossed that he will choose to stay rather than move elsewhere.

Whether it's a contract off the back of an agreed fee with City or a pre-contract agreement remains to be seen, but it's clear that Celtic are desperate to keep Guidetti at Celtic Park.
