Commons explains why a double isn't good enough at Celtic

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons has explained why he doesn't want to settle for a double at the club this season.

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons has explained in the Glasgow Evening Times why he’s not willing to settle for a double with the Bhoys this season.

Celtic have the League Cup in the bank and look good for a Scottish Premiership title, but Commons has suggested that nothing less than a treble will do for him.

“It is a big game for us now on Wednesday because it is a game that could determine whether or not we can go on and do the Treble,” said Commons.

“There are many teams who have done the Double but we want to make a little bit of history on our own.”

Commons has been an important player for Ronny Deila who seems to have the perfect blend between youth and experience in his side at the moment.

The boss has released some of the pressure, which surrounded him when he took over and a treble success by the end of the season will certainly improve his popularity with supporters even further.

It won’t be easy tomorrow in the Scottish Cup replay against the Tangerines because the Bhoys will need to be wary of a side, which will be out for revenge.

Celtic are unbeaten against Dundee United in their last two games and the Tangerines will want to take out the frustration of the League Cup defeat on the side that forced them to suffer it.

Celtic are one of the biggest clubs in Europe and certainly the biggest in Scotland and a treble this season would only further cement and demonstrate that dominance.
