Commons chooses the one ex-Celtic star he'd want in current Bhoys team


Kris Commons would have Henrik Larsson in the Celtic team.

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons said in a question and answer session on the club's official Twitter account that he'd bring Henrik Larsson back in to the team if he could.

Commons, 31, joined Celtic back in 2011 from Derby County, and has been an integral part of the Bhoys side ever since that transfer.

The attacking midfielder, who recently signed a new contract to stay at Celtic Park until 2017, has hit 78 goals in 185 games for the Bhoys, including 32 goals last season as Celtic once again won the Scottish Premiership title under Neil Lennon.

The manager may have changed this season, but Celtic are still poised to clinch the crown once again under Ronny Deila, with Commons once again playing a key role.

A popular member of the Celtic team, Commons took part in a question and answer session on the Celtic official Twitter account, and was unsurprisingly bombarded with questions from Celtic fans.

When asked which past Celtic player he would have in the current Bhoys team, he gave a fairly obvious answer - Henrik Larsson.

Larsson is a Celtic legend, with the Swede having scored 242 goals in 313 games for the Bhoys between 1997 and 2004, before spells with Barcelona, Helsingborgs and Manchester United.

One of the club's greatest ever players, Larsson in his prime would make it into many people's 'Best All-Time Celtic XI' - never mind the current team.
