There’s little that can get the Celtic fans parked up at the bar in the Transfer Tavern down right now, such is the nature of life under Brendan Rodgers at Parkhead.
Having woken the Hoops from the Ronny Deila induced slumber that appeared to plague them for the Norwegian’s two years in charge, the notion of having the ex-Liverpool chief at the helm for a number of years is an exciting one for them.
Rodgers is conducting a rebuild in green and white and reports from the Edinburgh Evening News have only cemented that within their minds.
They claim Bhoys stalwart Kris Commons is being lined up by former boss Neil Lennon in January as Hibernian plot a move in the coming weeks.
A stalwart of the club’s success in recent years, the 33-year-old hasn’t featured for the SPFL champions since March and seemingly has no future under Rodgers.
He’s been a hugely popular figure amongst the supporters propping up the bar over the last few years, though the idea of him leaving surely has little impact on the first-team.
Lennon, now in charge at Easter Road, reportedly views the former Derby County ace as the ideal man to help his title challenge in the Scottish Championship, with John McGinn out injured.
Would Commons win Hibs the league? Let us know below..
