Commons: The main reason only three Celtic teams have secured the treble

Celtic star Kris Commons is confident of a future treble at the club.

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons suggested in the Glasgow Evening Times that there is no worrying issue, which has prompted the club’s failure to secure the treble.

Commons has offered fans reason for optimism by suggesting that the club are in the fight for that achievement every single season.

“This is my fifth season here and every season is a Treble season - we are always in and about it,” he said.

“I have had disappointments in the past in semi-finals and finals, but there is one main reason why there are only three teams who have achieved a Treble here; it is so difficult.”

The manner of the Bhoys’ defeat in the Scottish Cup last weekend has left a bitter taste in the mouths of all connected to the club and that should provide the determination to ensure that the league title is wrapped up.

It will also provide the determination for manager Ronny Deila to make sure that the club is in a better position at the start of the 2015/2016 season than they were at the start of his debut year at the club.

Celtic are without doubt the biggest club in Scotland and the resources they have at their disposal means they are strong in all domestic competitions with a big squad every season.

The Inverness defeat was disappointing but the message coming from Commons is simple and effective; we’ll go hard again next season and every single season.
