Report: Celtic’s Kris Commons could miss Ajax tie

Celtic FC

Celtic will take on Ajax at Celtic Park in the Europa League Group A on Thursday evening.

Celtic attacking midfielder Kris Commons could miss the game against Ajax on Thursday evening, according to The Daily Record.

It has been reported that the 32-year-old is struggling with a thigh injury and will be evaluated this morning.

According to The Daily Record, “the chances of Commons being declared fit enough to face the Dutch outfit are growing increasingly remote”.

Former Nottingham Forest and Derby County star Commons is one of the best players in the current Celtic squad, and his absence could prove to be detrimental to the Bhoys’ chances of progressing to the knockout stages of the Europa League this campaign.

The Scottish Premiership giants are at the foot of the Europa League Group A with just two points from four matches.

Ronny Deila’s sie are three points behind second-place Fenerbahce and should be looking to win their final two group stages in order to book a place in the last-32 stage of the European competition.
