Deila hails Celtic 'match winner' Kris Commons

The Celtic boss has once again heaped praise on the 31-year-old.

Celtic boss Ronny Deila has once again singled experienced midfielder Kris Commons out for praise after his side's 4-0 Scottish Cup quarter-final win over Dundee United on Wednesday night, according to the club's official Twitter feed.

Commons netted Celtic's third goal as the Scottish champions progressed to the last four of the cup, having beaten Dundee United in the Scottish League Cup final only days prior.

The 31-year-old has suffered from injuries and fitness issues this term but is now playing a greater role within the Celtic side - one more akin to that of last campaign at Parkhead.

And Bhoys boss Deila knows Commons is a 'match winner' for his side, praising his improved performance against United.

The Norwegian also knows he doesn't have to rely on just the one match winner this season, though, with Celtic boasting a large squad full of talent.

Deila admits that squad - a very happy one at that right now - is a 'luxury' for him, as the Bhoys prepare to face Dundee United for a fourth consecutive time in the Scottish Premiership this weekend.
