Attacker Kris Commons has told that when looking back at his Celtic career he believes he made a “good run at it.”

The 33-year-old attacking midfielder is set for the Hoops’ exit doors at the end of the month with his contract at the club ending on May 31.

The 12-time capped Scotland international initially joined the club in the summer of 2011 in a £300,000 deal from Championship club Derby.

In his six years with the Hoops he has played in 227 matches, returning 89 goals while providing 72 himself and he has also helped lift six Premiership titles, three Scottish Cups and two League Cups.

Now, the experienced player has told that he enjoyed his best years at Celtic under Neil Lennon and that his memories of playing for the Hoops will last with him till the day he dies.

“Some of the biggest highs were under Neil Lennon,” told Commons, as quoted by the BBC.

“I look back at my Celtic career and think I had a good run at it.

“I was probably naive when I came to Celtic. I thought I was a player until I realised the scale of the club and what it meant. It was a real learning curve.

“You see big clubs in England but this club is above and beyond anything I’ve felt anywhere else.

“My goals might be forgotten next year or the year after but the memories that have been created for me by this famous football club will last with me till the day I die.”

Commons’ final season at Celtic was unfortunately marred by injury, while he also spent a month with Lennon in Hibernian between December and January, scoring twice and assisting two more in just five matches.

His last appearance for the Hoops came all the way back in April 2016 and he will now be hoping to return to first team football at his next club.
