Kris Commons says the way Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen has transformed his game this season has been amazing.
Johansen has gone from being a defensive midfielder to one of the Bhoys' main goalscoring threats, and Commons has been impressed by the Norwegian's progress.
The experienced attacking midfielder was speaking at a press conference today and was happy to heap praise on Johansen and goalkeeper Craig Gordon after seeing the pair catch the eye.
KC: "Craig Gordon has been excellent. He can have 80 or 90 minutes doing nothing then he produces these moments of magic." (KM)— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) April 7, 2015
KC: "I think Johansen has been amazing as well. From a defensive position last season, he's now an attacking threat & scored goals." (KM)— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) April 7, 2015
Johansen has played a staggering 54 games for Celtic this season, scoring 11 times, and his improvement under Ronny Deila has been remarkable.
The central midfielder looked a tidy player during his first six months at the club, after being brought to Parkhead at the start of 2014, but few could have predicted that he would become integral in such a short space of time.
Last season, Johansen netted just twice in 17 games, but he has found hitting the back of the net easy this term, with his energetic performances crucial for Deila's side.
It means that he is among the leading candidates to be named Celtic's Player of the Year, and it seems that Commons would have no issues if the 24-year-old did scoop the award.
