Report: Kris Commons could return for Celtic's top of the table clash with Aberdeen

The 32-year-old has missed the Scottish Premiership leaders' last three games.

Celtic could receive a major boost ahead of their crucial Scottish Premiership clash with Aberdeen on Wednesday, as The Scottish Sun reports that Kris Commons could feature in the game against the Dons. 

The 32-year-old has missed the Hoops' last three games due to a tight hamstring and illness, but The Scottish Sun claims that he returned to training ahead of the clash against Derek McInnes' side, and could now be included in the squad for the game.

While Ronny Deila's men won both of their league games in Commons' absence - including the 8-1 thrashing of Hamilton - they could have certainly done with having the attacker available for the club's Scottish League Cup semi-final clash with Ross County, which saw the Bhoys fall to a surprise 3-1 defeat.

His nine goals in all competitions this season proves that he continues to be an important member of Deila's side. And the Norwegian will be desperately hoping that he remains fit from now until the end of the season, as it would undoubtedly improve their chances of maintaining their six-point advantage over Wednesday's opponents, and of going on to win another league crown.
