Kris Commons makes statement that will excite Celtic supporters

Celtic's Kris Commons is starting to believe that the side can realistically win the treble this season.

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons has admitted to the club's official website that the domestic treble is 'in sight'.

The Bhoys won the Scottish League Cup at the weekend, but they are not satisfied with just one triumph.

The Parkhead squad are determined to make history, by adding two more pieces of silverware to their trophy cabinet before the end of the season, and it seems that Commons is starting to believe that anything is possible.

“Since I’ve been here I’ve never won the trophy (League Cup) so I’ve never been in a position to then go on and win the other two,” he said.

“The early trophy has always been out of reach for us, so it’s probably put a bit more pressure on us for the league and also the Scottish Cup, but the fact that we’ve got the League Cup builds momentum – the treble is in sight.

“In our eyes we’re very confident that we can do it."

The Bhoys are currently top of the Scottish Premiership and they should be strong enough to claim the league title.

Deila's men do face a tricky cup tie against Dundee United tomorrow evening, though, and that could be the biggest banana skin remaining for them.

United are a dangerous team and they will be motivated to get revenge in the fixture after Celtic's victory over them at the weekend.

If the Bhoys can avoid an upset, though, they will move ever closer to the trophy and Commons' belief that they can win the treble will continue to grow.
