Celtic's Kris Commons admits he didn't realise he hadn't won the Scottish League Cup

One of Celtic's key men has been looking ahead to Sunday's showpiece event and he made a surprising admission.

Celtic player Kris Commons has been speaking to the club’s official television channel ahead of the Scottish League Cup final.

The Bhoys take on Dundee United in the showpiece event on Sunday and in comments later published by Celtic’s official website, Commons explained how important it is for him to taste victory this weekend, while also making a surprising statement.

“We’ve got a huge chance to win it and it’d be nice to put that medal alongside the other ones,” Commons said.

“I didn’t actually realise I hadn’t won it yet.”

Commons has played 32 times for Celtic this season, scoring 10 goals and providing seven assists to date.

A hamstring injury has ruled him out of recent matches against Dundee United in the Scottish Cup and St Johnstone in the league, but he could be back for Ronny Deila’s side as they attempt to get the first part of a potential treble.

Celtic will know they are in for a game having only drawn with United last weekend, in a match they would have lost were it not for Leigh Griffiths’ fine second-half effort.

And this weekend will be an even tougher encounter, with both sides desperate to hold the trophy aloft.
