Kris Commons adamant he's taking Celtic's next penalty after Forrest's cup final miss

Kris Commons was delighted to win the Scottish League Cup final as Celtic defeated Dundee United 2-0 at Hampden Park.

Celtic playmaker Kris Commons told BBC Scotland that he was delighted to win the Scottish League Cup - but also said that he wants to take the club's next penalty after James Forrest missed from the spot late on.

The Bhoys went into the game as hot favourites, and didn't disappoint as they cruised back Dundee United with a 2-0 victory at Hampden Park.

Commons scored the opener before Forrest made it two, and after Celtic's task was made easier by Sean Dillon's red card, Forrest missed from the penalty spot as he squandered the chance to add gloss to Celtic's victory.

Commons was one of the heroes of the day after his opening goal, and told BBC Scotland that it's just one step on the way to winning a historic treble in Ronny Deila's first season as Celtic boss.

"This is one of three we want this year and it's another box ticked," said Commons. "It's a special moment for me, the first time I've won this trophy. They had nothing to lose, they tried to create chances, but I never thought we were in trouble."

Celtic are on the verge of winning the Scottish Premiership title, whilst they are also the favourites to win the Scottish Cup - and after today's League Cup final win, Celtic are moving ever closer to that treble.

After the game, Commons also joked to BBC Scotland that after Forrest missed from the penalty spot, he expects to be taking the next spot kick for Celtic - provided he's on the pitch! 

"I'm sick of being on bench or not involved when penalties are being taken," said Commons at the full-time whistle. I'll be taking the next one!"

It was Celtic's second missed spot kick in seven days after Leigh Griffiths' penalty was saved against Dundee United in the Scottish Cup, and with different players still failing, it's no wonder Commons is keen to get his hands on the ball when Celtic next win a penalty.
