Mark Wilson has told Deadline News that Celtic attacking midfielder Kris Commons should be part of Brendan Rodgers’s plans next season.

The 32-year-old is one of the best attacking midfielders in the Scottish Premiership, but he did not play regularly for the Bhoys this past season.

For some reason, then Celtic manager Ronny Deila did not rate him highly enough, but Wilson believes that the former Nottingham Forest and Derby County man should be a key player for the Hoops this coming season under new boss Rodgers.

“For me, personally, I think he has plenty to offer to Celtic,” former Celtic and Dundee United defender Wilson told Deadline News. “I’m a big fan of Kris Commons as a player. I thought he should have played a lot last season and he didn’t.

“Ronny Deila opted for anybody else rather than Kris Commons, which was weird when he was such a goal-scorer and such a big player for Celtic over the years.

“I would like to see him stay, because I still think he can contribute. And for a large portion of the Celtic fans, they would like to see him stay.”

Linked away

Commons has been linked with a move away from Scottish Premiership champions Celtic in the summer transfer window.

According to a recent report in The Scottish Sun, Championship club Rotherham United are interested in signing the Scotsman this summer.

It has been reported that new Rotherham manager Alan Stubbs wants to bring in Commons as one of eight new signings.

The former Hibernian manager played with the Scottish attacking midfielder at Championship club Derby back in 2008.
